I was recently asked “What is that one tool/supply/material you could not live without?”
“Only one?” I asked.
After putting some serious thought into it, I realized I absolutely could not do what I love to do without my Cricut Explore.
She was an HSN special in October 2014 and her Wild Orchid color was limited (I believe!) to those of us quick enough to purchase. She was my first and only HSN purchase … and I love her.
She was an upgrade from my Cricut Expression, a machine I had seen on an infomercial back in 2007. I remember spending an entire week’s paycheck on that baby. Thankfully, Cricut’s prices have gone down significantly over the years, making my upgraded purchase an easier sell to the (ever supportive) husband.
She sits permanently in my dining room, which is the center of any and all craft projects. This scene below is not uncommon in my household … at least when the husband is out of the house. I try to have it a little more self contained by the time he gets home. Laptop. Cricut. Fiskars Cutter. Scotch ATG Gun. Card Kits. Perler Beads. Oodles of cardstock. Planner clips. Bags and labels and mailer inserts and sketches and frames. Honestly, there’s no end to my creativity madness.
So what do you craft? What one supply/tool/material could you absolutely not survive without?
