Best of 2013: More crafty goodness!

mayf1 (4)

Hey everyone. So I’ve really been enjoying writing these best of posts. Feels good to share some love on the companies that are so important to my craftiness! Thing is… It is now the 20th of December and I need to wrap this up!! So I was trying to figure out what to do about the companies I still wanted to talk about and decided to round them up into one last post on the subject.


Stampers Anonymous – they work with such talented artists and did you know they also make wood mounted stamps so if you don’t want a whole set (in most cases) you can just get the single wood mounted image? Love that.


Speaking of love, it is no secret I’m a huge fan of Ranger. Not only do they produce amazing color mediums, but they are hands down the best customer service I’ve ever seen. Got an ink pad that runs out prematurely? they’ve got you covered. No questions asked. Heat tool breaks? They’ll replace it. I just LOVE how they are good to their customers.

Now what could go great with all those color mediums? Stencils. Hands down, The Crafter’s Workshop rules stencils. They have talented artists making designs that I can’t resist. I love that from finishing detail to background pattern they make such an amazing variety of stencils.

Looking for something on the cuter side? I can’t forget Doodlebug. They’ve been doing their brightly colored thing for so long – and they do it well. Their washi tapes, alphabet stickers, and buttons are always among my must-haves.


Now I’m sure I’ve forgotten some companies, but when I sat down to write this list these were the companies to pop into my mind immediately.


Rather than talk about EVERY company that I really like, enjoy, and love using their products I’m going to end my list here.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this series, and that you’ve enjoyed all the older projects and posts I’ve brought back to share as well. It was fun for me as I sat here (awaiting surgery) to flip through older ideas and posts and dream up stuff to share.

I will be sharing a few new posts between now and the end of the year – as time and my healing body allow. It has been one week since my surgery – here is hoping that the recovery is swift!
