I am very happy to report that I used my new scroll saw today. It was a birthday present last year from my family and sadly, it sat in the box all winter.But today I broke the box open and had a ball.
I love all the tools available now that makes crafting so easy and cost effective. The first time I used a scroll saw was probably 17 years ago and I used a friends shed and saw to do all my wood cutting. It was a large, heavy and expensive piece of equipment and there was no way I could have purchased my own then. But now, all the tools needed are easily accessible in craft stores, DIY stores, and online and they make life so much easier.
I have a list of the more expensive items that I would like to have and I give that list to my husband before upcoming gift-giving
opportunities. This way I not only get what I need, but I get what I want. And he feels like the hero for being able to take care of it. And, it’s always a surprise because I don’t know which one he has chosen!
It can take years to accumulate all the “tools of the trade”, but they are so worth it!
