Hi everyone!

This is a list of the five tools I couldn't live without. I thought this might be helpful for beginning crafters, and people who are looking for some recommended tools. :)

1. Fiskars 12 x12 Self Healing Cutting Mat. This mat is always on my crafting table. I've had it for over a year, and I don't think I'll ever have to get a new one.

2. Cricut Paper Trimmer. I really like this trimmer because it's light weight, small, and inexpensive. I have cut every piece of paper since I started crafting with this trimmer. (I'll have a video about it soon)

3. Martha Stewart Bone Folder. This I also got when I first started crafting. I like it because you can use both ends for scoring.

4. Tombo Mono Permanent Adhesive. This is the best tape runner I've found, and it works really well. It's pretty inexpensive too.

5. Making Memories Paper Piercer. I use it for everything, from pushing little things into place, to taking out stitches when I'm sewing.

Those are my 5 top tools, but I have to add one more thing, because I use it just as much as any of my tools. It's the Tote-Ally Cool Tote 2. I have everything I need to use all the time in it (trimmer, sanding block, ruler, pens), and I sit it right in front of me on my table, so I can grab things quickly. You can also travel with it.

So what are your favorite tools? I'd love to know! :)

I'm sorry there hasn't really been any new posts or videos lately, I've been really busy because I just started school again, and it has been great weather outside all week. I'll try to post something by the weekend, but no promises. I do want to do a review on the new paper trimmer I got yesterday, and a few more "Quick Tip" videos. If you have any suggestions for video ideas, I'd love to hear them! And I'm also going to post more things on Etsy, so look for those!
