Devious Journal Entry

Sat Sep 15, 2012, 8:44 AM
So for those of you that don't know, Michael's is having a giant sale on clay until Sunday (I think) or today. All clay are $1.00, so if you were thinking about starting to work with clay, now is the time to go buy some!

I know I plan to go out and buy a ridiculous amount myself. c:

Also, I'd like to clarify that the critiques I'm offering are for polymer clay items only. This is the medium I work the most with and am most familiar with, and it's the only one I'm comfortable enough critiquing. Sorry if there was any confusion - I probably should have been more clear with my last post.

I'd be willing to announce a good clay sale here next time and send some for the price of the clay plus shipping. I don't know how much the shipping would be, though. :/

*wails* nooooooooooo! why do I live in the ass-end of the woooooorld and all the good sales are on the other side of itt?? >_< The only (physical) craft shop I've seen in Australia with clay is Riot Art and their FIMO clay is at least $4.95 :( I try and buy it from a 'local' online shop which is around a buck less. Clay creation here is not cheap *sighs*

Wish I was in the States right now >_< i'd buy my weight in clay!! maybe u should buy out all the stock in Michael's and resell to me yes? :D *nods nods*

Oh wow, why is it so expensive???

I could venture out to buy some for you when they have a sale next. The usual sales are usually 1/2 off or 5 for $4.00. I'm just not sure how much shipping would be, though.

I know... I only restock when I'm out of 3-5 colors of clay. The craft store here is just a walking distance! :D

I managed to get some clay from there, but at my store they were all out of the colors I use...

I also ended up getting black microbeads for some shoes I want to make. I made Alexander McQueen shoe earrings for a friend before and I want to make them again but more savvy.

That sucks. :( The one where I am I guess clay isn't as popular since most of the colors I wanted were there. I kind of want to go to the other Michael's near my parents' house and get some more colors there...

It's like a freaking addiction.

Just went out today, our sale goes until Thurs/Friday and the clay is stuck at $4 ea. I'll check it out later in the week to see if they'll budge. Thanks for the head's up. :)

Oh yuck, $4.00 each? Why is it so pricey everywhere else? D:

If you would like, I could go buy and ship some for just the price of the clay and shipping costs. :)

That is a wonderful offer but I'll have to decline. Border fees are outrageous here. Thank you so much for considering it though.

If I can convince my husband to let me buy some, I'm going to need other materials to get me started, no? X-acto knife or something like that, maybe? And any advice on which colors would be the best to start out with?

Omg u know when I saw 99 cents sign yesterday for the clay I was way too happy haha which I don't think is normal for a person to be that happy to see clay LOl. I also used a 20% off coupon for entire purchase (plus sale items) so the clay was like 78 cents each! Sooooo happy lol I ended up buying 33 blocks rofl *rolls in clay* :squee:

Maybe the sale carries to their online store? It's worth a look. :)

Joann's sometimes has their clay for 50 cents each, usually on the weekend. Not every weekend, but every once in a while. :)
