Are You a Crafter or a Baker?

Grocery Shopping Like a Crafter

Cake stand terrarium

I shop for groceries and crafts the same way: with no rhyme or reason. I often roll up from the grocery store with bags full of random, with no menu or plan in mind; I just know I will be able to make something work.

I do the same thing when I hit the craft store. I can’t walk out of a Michaels, Jo-Ann, or Hobby Lobby without a bag of supplies I have no real plan for. But when I decided to convert a cake stand into a terrarium this week, I was thankful I had picked up that bag of neon pink aquarium gravel that spoke to me at the store a few weeks ago.

When you bake, you need to have everything on your list. That is not to say you can’t sub out the occasional blueberry for a raspberry, but for the most part, you better buy everything on the supply list for your recipe.
