I have been keeping my eye out for a label maker and can’t believe they can come as cute as this.

After many broken hot glue guns, I’m more than ready to own a durable one like this Surebonder H-270 Full Size High Temperature Glue Gun that can hold up through all the crafting.

These beech wood cookie tape holders can make the cutest stocking stuffers, along with these polyhedra stamps.

Top off a gift with a handmade key fob. You will need Key Fob Hardware and our tutorial to get started.

Jaime discovered the wonders of Montana Spray Paint when we she was working on some top secret projects for the book! A small can goes a long way with a very professional finish.

I’ve had my eye on getting back to painting with this Watercolor Paint Set. The colors are so rich and bold I’m inspired just looking at it.

Glitter Tape is like champagne, it just makes everything better. Use it to decorate cards or tuck it into a handmade t-shirt stocking.

Creative Bug is a one-stop shop for online craft workshops. Buy your closest crafty friend a subscription, individual workshop, or craft kit like this Leather Brindle Clutch Kit. The materials will be sent to you, along with unlimited access to the step-by-step instructional video.

My heart belongs to a Sashiko by Baby Lock. It makes everything look like you’ve hand stitched it, without all the work.

Be inspired to sew something beautiful with the Tropical Kona Sampler from Fabricworm. You can’t go wrong with their Alexander Henry Christmas Fabric too.

Use one of the Fabricworm fabrics, along with this non-slip Jiffy Grip 11 Inch x24 Inch White fabric, to make slippers for someone you love.

I tried out Handmade Charlotte’s Paper Stencils to decorate my tablecloth for Quinn’s Ice Cream Social Party and have been hooked ever since. I especially love that they have trendy stencil designs for the modern crafter.

Jaime has been raving about her new OLFA 1057028 CMP-3 Rotary Circle Cutter. It’s definitely one of the 5 sewing supplies she can’t live without.

Speaking of items we can’t live without, one of our tried and true favorites is the Simplicity Bias Tape Machine. Jaime explains how to use it in How to Make Bias Tape and shows you what to do with it next in How to Sew with Bias Tape.

I fell in love with Watson Kennedy Scissors on my trip to Seattle. They are handmade and work beautifully. I even brought a pair back for Jaime and Colleen because they are just too beautiful to pass up.




I had my own wish list (Crafter’s Top Ten Wish List) but it did not include a label maker. How did I miss that? Adhesive spray should always be on hand as well!
