I’m a tool addict…. I want all the gadgets, all the goodies!
Whether it’s sewing, scrapbooking, creating an embroidered gift or a pillow
to grace my bed, I’m always looking for a new tool to
Sometimes it’s a conventional tool like the basics, scissors (lots of sizes!)
thread, stickers, paper and glue
But more often what really gets me going is seeing a tool in use…
via a video tutorial, a blog, or from a friend or a magazine…
Then I WANT it!
This is a blessing and a curse, because you should see my chaotic craft room!
I think you’re familiar with what I’m saying…
and I thought we could share our tools and what we’re using them to create!
To begin “Tool Tuesday” I thought I’d share my NEWEST gadget…..
Yes, it’s a Sizzix Big Shot! It is a Mother’s Day gift to myself! Yippee!
What made me want this tool was seeing a blog hop party at Eileen Hulls' Thoughts from my Studio where they used the Sizzix Cake Die…
And there were creations like this…

Karen Burinston's I am not left-handed
What I really liked about the features of the Big Shot were that it is universal and can
use any other brand die-cut, plus there are a lot of 3-D dies to
make awesome cards and boxes, etc. which really was exciting to me as when a craft
is 3-D, to me it becomes “real” not just a flat object, so it’s like it’s come alive!
What tools do you have and how do you use them and what do you create?
