All my favorites for blogging, making and life
Today I’m sharing all of the things I can’t live without for the workshop, blogging, and day to day tasks!
I’m often asked which power tool someone should buy first… and this is it. A jigsaw. It cuts through most lumber, it’s easy to use, and it doesn’t feel scary the way larger saws can. I’m not saying I can cut a straight line with my jigsaw, but I used it to make this wood house centerpiece and to cut the shape of our headboard.
This level sticks to the wall and is perfect for hanging things like curtain rods or a gallery wall. Find the level point, stick it on the wall, and mark as many points as you want on the same line!
I love that this sander has a pointed tip so it’s great for getting into corners and tight spots. I also have this orbital sander for big jobs.
I use this whenever I can! I painted this whole dresser in under an hour! Not only does it make painting 100% faster, but it also gives a wonderful smooth finish! I’ve tried other paint sprayers and this one is REALLY easy to clean too!
If you ever spray paint, get this. Trust me.
I don’t use this all the time, but I love it when I do. Mine was actually out of stock, but this looks similar. It provides a great neutral backdrop for flatlays or other craft photography and is a good photo prop to have in your arsenal.
Someone asked if I drank coffee the other day and I almost laughed outloud. Um, yeah… I do. This cup is the best because not only does it keep the coffee warm for ages, but it’s also leak free so I can just toss it in my bag without any fear of drips or spills!
I use this microphone for my videos. One piece connects to the phone, an the other clips onto my lapel. It’s battery powered and I’ve been impressed with the sound quality.
If you’re doing ANY type of interior photography you need a tripod. In order to shoot at a low ISO (to avoid grainy photos) you’re going to need your shutter to stay open for longer than 1/50th of a second which means it will blur unless you have a tripod.
Not only does this make my computer looks super cute but I think it’s meant to protect it a bit too! Win-win.
This foundation isn’t the cheapest but it is like putting AIR on your face. I use this for TV makeup as well as a light tough up during the day.
I love this highlighter stick and use it around my cheekbones and under my eyebrows. It provides a nice dewy glow!
This mascara looks like I’ve put false eyelashes in. That’s how good it is!
Every time you see these beauties, you ask… so here they are. I love them and never take them off!
I wear a similar one from Target all the time and just grabbed this one on Black Friday. I love blanket scarves. I fold them diagonally and then wrap the two corners around my neck once and then tie in front.
