I feel out of touch with crafting (after not creating anything for about five months), but opening those moving boxes to find all those goodies again was like Christmas. So FUN. Really looking forward to seeing what NEW crafty goodies are out on the market nowadays. I have a "thing" for cutting Dies and Paper Punches. Wonder what all Ive missed. What are some of your favorite NEW PRODUCTS??

Cant wait to see you joining the great House-Mouse fun HERE!
