Where did we need to go to get the materials needed? The hardware store – my favorite place on Earth!
Ended up spending a ton of money (not much of a surprise) on very important things. I was going to buy glue sticks for the glue gun we have now, but buying two tiny boxes of glue sticks in a smaller size would’ve cost more than buying an entirely new (more awesome!) glue gun (10€) and a huge box of glue sticks (12€). I also got some questionable quality brushes for ca. 0.50€ a piece – a bargain, if you ask me. 🙂
