Things and ideas for more Creativity

There are so many things out there for Crafting. It makes your mind spin with ideas and wanting this and that and it all depends on what type of crafting you do. Just when you get one tool they come out with something better that does more and you wish you would have waited. The smaller tools and/or less expensive are easier to come by but the things that are hundreds of dollars the average crafter cannot buy one thing and then turn around and buy another one that does the same thing just because it does something better or more. My mind is in a whirl all the time with things I want and usually I tell my daughter and my husband and then they try to get me for my Birthday or Christmas or Anniversary but those $300-$1,000. are just not very often possible.

What is your most wanted higher priced item right now for your preferred craft? There are lots of things to consider before you purchase if you purchase. I am just taking a look at some things I want and ran across this video and thought it was very interesting and at least has changed my mind on one thing I wanted. I just thought I would share with anyone out there that may be considering either of these items.
That's my thoughts for today. Will be back tomorrow to see what else I can find out about or get off my mind. .

This is all new to me

This is my first post and I don't really know what I am doing so please bear with me.

I am a Mother of 1 and 3 Stepchildren and a Grandmother of 9 and Great Grandmother of 4. Quite a bunch but love them all.

My husband is self employed and I am retired so I find myself with lots of time to do some of the things I love to do like scrapbooking and crafts.

I just finished working on a book of my ancestors on my Father's Family. The Family Tree had been started and mostly done. I just added some of the more recent gererations and compiled it with some of our Family's history and photos into a book. If you ever want to try making one yourself the site link to create is http://www.mixbook.com . The software they use is pretty simple to use and its all free until you have the book printed and that is what cost but the prices are reasonable compared to all those I checked before I started the project plus I found that the options in the software were better for the things I wanted to include.

I guess this post is a start and hope I get some posts from others.
I will be adding some free files for cutting as I make them and photos of some of my creations.
