SHOPPING GUIDE: My 10 Must-Have Art Supplies To Jumpstart Your Creativity

As someone who crafts for both business and pleasure, I spend a lot of time at local art supply stores and on websites that sell craft goodies. But there are a handful of materials that I use all the time, so I make sure to always have them on hand. And I thought I'd share that list with you, so you can fill out your craft supply collection with all of the necessities.
