Craft Schooling Sunday
Check out creativejewishmom’s international party, if you click the link above you’ll see some great projects each week.  I just added my Mini-matchbox Makeover to her list of links and you can join in, too!  I especially love last week’s links, there are some great projects there.

Two weeks ago I posted a request asking everyone what kinds of tools they use, or if you had any questions & then followed up with a guest blogger post from Stuart of ToolGuyd (Getting Hot with Heat Guns).    I’ll be continuing the tool posts on Tuesdays, tailoring them to crafting needs.  Here’s a (short!) summary of tools that you submitted:
  • awls
  • Soft & hard hammers
  • computers and printers
  • jewelry pliers and cutters
  • small iron
  • jewelers chasing hammer and anvil
  • sewing machine
  • tabletop magnifier
  • alligator clips
  • Dremel
  • torch
  • bone folders
  • paintbrushes
  • glue gun
  • soldering iron
  • paper cutters
  • scissors
  • Xacto blades
  • scroll saws
& more…
Nobody mentioned checking the country of origin for their products (& I know I have international readers here, would love your feedback!)  but it seems most try to buy things locally instead of big box stores.

Safety issues will be addressed, too, when necessary, there's no need for us to be afraid of our tools!

And Thea had some questions – one addressed in this past Tuesday’s Tool post & the other, Stuart replied to in comments - “Solder is pronounced like "sodder" in the US, and I have heard not heard it pronounced differently by British-English speakers.”

  1. My awl is made in the U.S. I don't remember where or when I got it. Sometimes I feel as if I woke up one morning and it was sitting right there on my work table! A gift from the gods perhaps.

  2. Looking forward to the "Tuesday’s Tool post". I mostly buy my tools and supplies locally. These local craft shops have tools and supplies imported from all around the world and also those made locally. Have a lovely merry happy day and love to you!
