I was just thinking about how we creative types also are creative with obtaining supplies. Whether it's outright purchasing, trading, dumpster diving, recycling, up cycling, or harvesting, I have had to learn how to be just as creative with procuring supplies. Some times this is an economic necessity, but other times it idea based.
I thought I would share one of my procurements with you all.
This ancient apple tree drops enough branches each spring that I can make 5-6 broom handles.
The grand old Birch out front supplies enough twigs to complete those 5-6 brooms each season. Isn't that a wonderful coincidence. In this instance, all the twigs in the front yard provided the creation idea for the besoms (brooms). Thess supplies are harvested from natural cycles of growth, death, and seasons.
What is your favorite supply hunt?
