Some of my favorite things

Hi everyone. Over on my niece's blog, she posted that she tends to use the same basic five items over and over. In no particular order, here are my top five items. Oh yes, my ATG gun. When I first got it, I thought it was a bit bulky, but it really isn't. It's light and works perfectly!

My favorite scissors. The little Cutterbee scissors. I call them my bumble bee scissors. I love these scissors because they are sharp and small.

Inks. We all need inks if we're going to stamp! I use these two different types of inks: The Memento ink I use for stamping images that I want to color with my Copics and the Versafine for images I color with my Prismacolor pencils. I think the Versafine gives a sharper image than the Memento, but you can't use Versafine ink with Copics unless you heat emboss the image.

My Prismacolor pencils. I love these pencils. I store my pencils in highball glasses. I have 3-4 pencils of each color. I do this for a couple of reasons. One, I'm a pencil pig. Two, I figure if I have 3-4 of each color, when I go to look for a particular color, I won't have to search for the color. Oh, and I like the look of the full pencil cups. :)
And last but certainly not least, my Copics. It's about 50/50 now when I color an image. Sometimes it's Prismas and sometimes it's my Copics. I love these sketch markers and can't imagine crafting without them.
Thanks, Dana, for your post. How about you? What are your top five items you couldn't craft without?
Thanks for stopping by today!

What a great post Debbie - I might do this too. But I don't knowif I can stick with 5 LOL!

My Sew Mini is a lemon. I hate it. It never worked and was even sent back to them for repair.

Anyways, my top five.
1. VersaFine for pencils/watercolors and Memento for Copics.
2. All colorants (Yes, it's a cheat, but I couldn't choose between Copics, Watercolors, Chalk Pencils, and Colored pencils.)
3. Distress Inks & Daubers
4. Paper Trimmer
5. Adhesive

Rut-roh. Where are my stamps on this list? And all my glittery stuff? And ribbons.


Can we do a top 25?
