My Best Friend

I thought I would try and share with you a bit of the those who are in my crafty life.  I think of them as my best friends.

You've been reading and watching as I go through my journey to learn all I can about my craft and create outside of my comfort zone.  Well, I could not go through this journey without my best friends.
This is my number one best crafty friend.  There is no way I can accomplish those fun layouts without my Fiskars Softtouch Micro-Tip  Scissors.  If you have never used Fiskars Micro-Tip Scissors you will be in for a treat.  They have a spring action that is incredible.  I have several other companies micro-tip scissors and they do the job, but without the same joy!  Instead of placing your fingers in two wholes and wonder if it is lefty or rightly and you do not "pull" apart the scissors, but rather squeeze your scissors together.   I did a tiny Debby's Dare Demo to show you the difference.  (I'm trying to get back into the swing of video demos.)

I hope to show you a few more of my best crafty friends this week.  I still owe you 2 cutesy layouts.  This has been my hardest hurdle to jump.  I'm going to have to find some inspiration that I love in the area of cutesy.

Personal
We had a wonderful Father's Day/Birthday for my husband Jimmy.  Minus one granddaughter and I'm taking the photo, this is my family.  My family continues to get larger.  My four children are located:  first  to the left of my husband; behind him is my oldest son, skip one and the tallest is my youngest, then my beautiful daughter is next to him.  These are the "originals." 
Have a Crafty Day!

  7. My sister got a pair of these and told me I had to try them. She was right, they are fantastic! Being left-handed, a good pair of scissors is such a treasure.
