A Few of My Favorite Things

Don’t we all have those certain things we just couldn’t live without?  Well, maybe we could live without a few of them, but we certainly wouldn’t want to.  I thought I would take a few minutes to note some of MY FAVORITE THINGS.  What are your top 5 favorites? I would love to read your comments on this one (plus, I want to try out your faves!).
On my completely random, non crafting list, I’ve got:
Boots, Herbal Teas, BBC Movies, Almond Butter and My Smart Phone
On the more important crafting list:
1. ColorBox Chalk Inks- These handy dandy tools fall in at #1 for so many reasons.  Not only is the price right ($1.99), but they are also made in a variety of colors (my go-to being Chestnut Roan).  I am always impressed by how much adding ink to the edges of a project really makes it pop.  Couldn’t live without these babies!
We R Memory Keepers 70907 Crop-A-Dile Eyelet & Snap Punch2. We-R Memory Keepers Cropadile-It is hard for me to imagine life without my cropadile.  How did I ever punch holes in metal or chipboard before I had this?  I love the versatility and durability of this fun tool.  It is great for crafting and non crafting projets alike.
We R Memory Keepers 71000-4 Cinch Bindery Tool
3. We-R Memory Keepers Cinch- It is no secret that I am a mini-book fanatic.  Without my Cinch, I would be completely lost.  I love the flexibility of this hole punching and binding tool.  My favorite feature- that you can turn holes off or on to create custom bindings.
Scor-Tape: 1/4 inch4. Scor-Tape- Some of my favorite crafting friends turned me onto this miracle working adhesive.  I love things to stick and stick some more, so when I started working with Scor-Tape, I got addicted very easily.  I love this tape for putting together boxes and attaching ribbon.  It holds better than any other adhesive that I have tried, plus it is tearable…so it is simple to use.  I also love that it comes in a variety of widths.

Silhouette SD5. Silhouette Digital Cutter- Last (but certainly not least) is my Silhouette Digital Cutter.  I admit it, I am a computer junky, and I love that my Silhouette interfaces directly with my computer for easy manipulation.  I love the fact that I can download any true type font and cut it out of any paper just minutes later. Overall, I just love this tool!
