Products I Recommend

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.

Thanks for being here and reading . . .

Author: The Art of Cobwebs - aka:- thecobweboriumemporium

Hello. I'm 'Cobwebs'. I live in a wee little cottage in the South of England, aptly called Cobweb Cottage. This little dwelling really is a cobweb factory. Not inside (well, occasionally) - but outside - flipping heck! This information should give you a clue as to why my blog is called The Art of Cobwebs aka: The Cobweborium Emporium. I've been arty and crafty from a very young age, and although my crafts have sometimes turned a corner and taken me in another direction, I've always crafted in some way, shape or form. One day, in the blink of an eye, life changed somewhat for me and the consequences were many. I had to find a new way of being 'artistic'. Card making; scrap-booking; producing ATC's and ACEO's; needle felting; Polymer clay; painting- but in a more relaxed style than I had before, and sewing, - are all things which I visit, as and when life allows. I've fairy recently become a Textile Artist and am enjoying this new creative outlet very much as it offers me so much scope for letting my imagination run through a grassy field and feel the wind in my hair - (mentally, of course). I love to create. To make things. I truthfully believe that the best gifts in the world are those in which you've given your time, rather than your cash. Thank you so much for visiting. Please visit my blog (link below) and have a look around. I'm sure you'll find something to enjoy, even if it's only a handful of jokes! (yes, seriously - there really are jokes!) Wishing you a truly blessed rest of your day! ~ Cobs. <3
