I’ve been lucky enough to walk the streets of Hong Kong many times this year. With the help of friends, Google and sheer luck, I’ve managed to round up a list of must-visit places for Arts & Crafts supplies in the city. Here’s a quick Arts and Crafts Supplies Guide: Where to buy in Hong Kong.
There are a few tools you can buy to make your pillow box making as simple as a series of paper punches. Here are some of those magical tools:
It’s definitely difficult not to fall in love with Japan. This year, I headed over to Osaka again for a two-week work & play adventure. Last year, I was still finding and learning my way around the city, so my search for craft supplies was quite limited. This year, I checked out new places and discovered that there was so much I was missing. Since there’s been this great Japan invasion this year, I thought I’d share with you fellow crafter a few of my favorite spots. Here’s quick Arts and Crafts Supplies Guide: Where to buy in Osaka.

It’s been busy at the I Try DIY HQ. We had our first bazaar this Christmas season, put up crafts stations at a couple birthday parties, churned out a lot of halloween tutorials for the site, and worked on new workshop offerings! The biggest undertaking though is finally complete, and we can’t wait to share it with you.
We finally opened the online I Try DIY Shop! After a couple years of selling craft tools and handmade goods at random bazaars, we thought we had to make our items available to a bigger crowd. We have a wide array of craft tools, decorative punchers, stamps and stationery items.
I’m back from my 6-week escape from Manila. I spent time with my family in good ol’ Anchorage, Alaska. I was half-expecting myself to burn my money shopping for clothes and accessories, but instead found myself headed home with two checked-in baggage of craft supplies and three additional boxes being sent via cargo.
Anchorage is one of those small quaint towns where crafting isn’t left for lolas alone. Handmade wasn’t a movement, it was an everyday life staple. Here’s a list of my favorite places to crafts spots!
