    have a look at www.cleverpatch.com.au

    You can purchase things there, but if you look under activities, they have heaps of ideas.

    Thanks will check out the activities.
    Just thought I'd let everyone know - my local Toyworld had 2L Crayola paint for $14.99each - a little more expensive than the other store but I figured postage would have been extra too. Washable too..
    We have also started saving the trays out of the biscuit tins which I am sure we will be able to make something out of.
    Now I just have to plastic coat DS craft area and we are right to go!

    I love crafting too, especially card making and personalised birthday card .. I get my craft supplies from eBay - you can frequently find huge lots of any kind of materials here. Within categories like 'crafts', there are often specific sub-categories for 'lots' of items - check them out.You can try this site too- http://www2.buy-a-rama.com/search-re...RPLEPOSTBOX-v1

    its a worldwide thing but can look up australian sellers kinda like ebay. The way i see it and im still very new to it (only serached cute baby things lol) is that its like an ebay but more so for small businesses that handcraft/make their own things ....correct me if im wrong lol

    madeit.com.au is kind of similar to etsy but Australian. Also on etsy you can search for goods from Australia.

    Op shops & garage sales sometimes have bulk lots of crafty stuff that people don't want. Cheap shops sometimes have quite good stuff too!

    I also found that when i searched on ebay for items like buttons, tulle ect crafty things, i also discovered my local craft shop had a website and found things cheaper plus if i order thru them i wont have to pay for postage as i can go in and pickup whenever which is sssoo helpful as i live 10km out of town and i wont be rummaging and searching for things when i go in there (and also buying unnecessary things like i always do lol) the website is www.createandsee.com.au

    I like visiting Riot regularly and raiding their clearance bins. Bargains galore.
