I mean, if we’re going for survival here…I would go with my exacto knife.  But if we’re talking the ‘desert island’ of all the other craft materials around me are sub par except for this one thing I happen to have on me…I guess I would go with my Creative Memories Circle cutters.  By far the best of the best out there.

I’m sure if I had a Gocco I would be in love with it too!  However, my (current) favorite are these embroidery scissors that are curved which are GREAT for cutting out circles and curved stuff! I’m in love with them!

I’m with Avacado–my laptop! I’m a design freak! I start everything there. The execution of that design could be anywhere, but it all starts with the computer!

I don’t have a gocco, but if I did, I would choose it.  I’ve been so close to buying one, but I have very little I could use it for (at the moment).


  If I had to choose one of the tools I have now it would be colored floral spray.  I saved so much buying white mini calla lilies and hand spraying them pink.
