Tools, Tutorials

Happiness is a warm glue gun…and three more of my essential tools

The Beatles said Happiness is a Warm Gun but I have to say true happiness is a warm glue gun, and a Dremel and a Cricut, too…..here are my all time favorite tools of my trade:

#1 – Mini Cordless Glue Gun

I have used this specific glue gun to craft everything for our wedding a year ago as well as every other craft I’ve ever done. It’s got the right price for the dependability and durability over the years, and I mean YEARS! The sticks are always readily available at my local dollar stores if I unexpectedly run out.

#2 – Dremel 4000

I use this bad boy for all of my carving and cutting jobs!! Just wait till you see the tutorials on our holiday characters and signs we’re going to be working on next week….this will be an integral part of those projects!

#3 – Walnut Hollow wood burning kit with hot knife

This kit is unbelievably versatile….Need to solder? It can do it! Have a vinyl you want to turn into a clock? It can do it! Want to etch your bulldogs face into a piece of wood? It can do it! It’s just fun to experiment with!

#4 – Cricut Explore Air

We invested in this machine when we were DIYing our wedding….this machine rocked my socks off so much that I plan to use it to help my good friend Brittny with her wedding decorations, invitations and the like. The possibilities are endless!

If you know me personally then you know I’m no brand chaser but so many DIY mistakes have taught me to always use the right tools for the trade (and to follow instructions carefully)….Take my word for it; these are definitely worth the investment!
