Cutting Machine: I use and love the Cricut Explore machine. This is my all time favorite crafting tool in my craft room. I use it to cut vinyl for projects and iron-on vinyl to use in home decor and clothes. I also use it to cut paper for craft projects, scrapbooking, banners and cards. I have even cut fabric with it! It is such a versatile machine. The Cricut Design Space™ software is very easy to use, and you can now use the Cricut Design Space™ app with your iPad!
Discount: One Day Only Sale! Get the Cricut Explore One Machine for Just $149! (Ends 11/27/15). Get Up to $50 Off Machine Bundles at Cricut! (Ends 11/29/15).
Vinyl: If you already have a cutting machine or you plan on getting one, a must have item is vinyl. You can purchase it in so many different types and styles. I purchase most of my vinyl through Cricut.com and Expressions Vinyl. My new favorite is the glitter heat transfer vinyl.
General Crafting: Is your favorite crafter into paper crafts and home decor? The new minc foil applicator from Heidi Swapp is on a lot of wish lists this year. You can use it to create beautifully foiled projects of all kinds.

Photography: Many of the creative people I know also love to take pictures. As a blogger I have had to learn a lot of skills to make my photographs stand out for my business. It is becoming more and more common for even amateur photographers to own a DSLR camera. And if you have a camera (or a smartphone) you can use some extras.

Pretty Planner Supplies: I am a busy mom and business owner. Many creatives sell items on the side. To keep track of your busy life, you need to stay organized. And creative types tend to like things that are pretty. My favorite planner is the Erin Condren life planner. There are three styles of life planners to choose from – vertical, horizontal and hourly. They are colorful, fun and very functional. There are a ton of designs to choose from and you can personalize them to the recipient.
