The Crafter’s Wishlist Part 2

My Turn, my turn! Here is a list of my favorites and I didn’t even get to the books! Listed are a few things that I can’t live without and a few things from my own wish list.

KitchenAid Artisan 5-Quart Stand Mixers
Before my wedding people told me I would never use a stand mixer. WHAT!?! I use it ALL THE TIME. If a mixer is on your wishlist, explain that the COLOR is very important, I’m just saying.

Wool Blend Felt
Need I say more? Just take it out every once in a while and pet it and tell it how pretty it is.

Canon EOS 50D 15.1MP Digital SLR Camera with EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Standard Zoom Lens
This is my baby. If you are up for the investment then don’t delay. A Canon DSLR will change your life, I’m not kidding.

Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Camera Lens
This little lens is the BEST for low light situation and getting that short depth of field (blurry background) that is so gorgeous for portraits and still lifes.

Happy Tape
I WANT! So cool for card making and gift wrapping.

This is great for cutting paper and fabric.

BIC Mark-It
These are great markers at a great price! So much fun to have all those colors at your fingertips for sketching out project ideas.

X-ACTO Heavy Duty Paper Cutter
Great for cutting a bunch of paper quickly and straightly!

Fiskars Squeeze Punch-Corner
This is fun for rounding corners on everything!

Yudu Screen Printing Machine-USA 62-5000
Has anyone tried this as a replacement for Gocco? The reviews are mixed but I’m curious to hear what you think.

And also, we added a little Amazon banner over there to the right, listing some of our favorite crafty goods. It will change as we discover new things. We do receive a percentage of the purchase price because Amazon is cool like that.




We've been debating a stand mixer for our registry. Good to know you get lots of use out of your KitchenAid.

Wish I had space for an expansion into craftiness. You always inspire me for Christmas pressies. I could blow my whole budget getting things only for you and Marielle.


hello i have to say i love my mixer (my color is TANGERINE!) and i also love love love the ice cream maker attachment. i use it a lot. i love my gocco but it getting harder and harder to find supplies, curious about the screen printer you posted. i also forgot to add to my list that i want a robot that folds laundry.


If any of you crafty ladies think that there is something that we are missing, PLEASE let us know! Or if you write your own list, please send it to us. We're nosy like that.

Dear SIL Elise, Feel free to spend your entire Xmas budget on me (just kidding.) Or just make me something, you make the coolest stuff (when you're not working on your PhD.) Sigh…


Love these lists! Great to see what I also couldn't live without & hear if others really enjoy having what I've got my eye on.

Ooooh that exact lens is on my wish list! I've been dreaming about it ^_^

Only, Amazon won't ship it to Oh! Canada… so I've got to figure out something else!!
