As a crafter I know that there’s a plethora of crafting tools; products; glues; papers; card; adornments; ribbons; and even places to buy all of these things – and a whole lot more – but how do you know which is the best one for you, when you’re stood there, in the store, or sat looking at the internet, trying to decide which item you want to buy for the job you want it to do?
I know that when I bought my Die Cutting Machine I wish I’d had someone to tell me what sort of experience they’d had with machines previously so that I’d have some sort of *real* guidance – rather than someone on a craft channel trying to talk me into parting company with my cash, or a sales assistant in a shop who needed to make that all important sale. Sadly, I’d just moved to the south of England, from many miles further up the country, so hadn’t made any crafting friends where I now live and hadn’t found any crafting groups here either, so I was on my own and had to shop around (and uhm and ahh) for about three months before I finally made my choice.
So, in the true spirit of crafting friendship, I’ll use this category on my blog to chat about. and add photos when I can, of products I’ve tried and tested, and give you my truthful (and possibly sometimes blunt) opinion of things I’ve used, am using, love and can’t get enough of … or things I just wasn’t overly impressed with or tried and tested and found the products wanting in some way.
Please add your own comments because that way people will get another view-point, and I love comments as it kind of gives feedback. If there’s anything you’re thinking of buying and would like to know if I’ve tried the product then feel free to leave a comment asking me. If I’ve tried it, then I promise to tell you my opinion of what I thought about it.
