Stretching Your Craft Materials Budget

I love to do crafts, but on a tight income it is often too expensive. Then I hit on the idea of entering them in the county fair. I use the premium money for more craft materials to enter the next year. I make my Christmas gifts early, enter them in the fair, then send them away at the holidays. Since I also enter dried herbs from my flower beds, the premium money gets extended a little further, and we have yummy perennial herbs at no cost!
