Obviously, how much storage you need depends on how much stuff you have. If your craft has become more than a hobby and has turned into a passion or a way to earn a living, you may be in a situation where you have a lot of craft supplies, and not enough room to store them neatly. There are cabinets that open up and unfold to not only provide a lot of storage drawers, shelves and pouches, but also to make a working area, complete with craft table.

If you have a small work area, or prefer painting outdoors “en plein air”, a watercolor pochade box can be the ideal painting tool as it combines both an easel and a palette in one handsomely crafted box. The pochade box can be angled in a variety of degrees or it can lay flat to accommodate water color painting. Some boxes can also be attached to a tripod if need be for greater versatility.

No matter if you are young or old, just starting out or have been painting for a while, a watercolor painting kit can provide you with all the materials needed to get your artistic visions on paper. A watercolor kit should include an assortment of brushes, watercolor paints, proper watercolor paper, a palette and just as important, an artist’s easel. A watercolor kit makes a great gift for anyone who is considering becoming the next John James Audubon or Wiliam Blake.

If you live in a rural or suburban area, you might never have to buy a bag of pine cones for your arts and craft projects as there is bound to be a pine tree on or near your property. If however, you live in an urban setting, you might find yourself having to purchase a bag of pine cones for your home decor ideas, or personal gift ideas.
