Okay So I really like tools. I buy way too many. I have to try out the latest and greatest. This obsession sometimes gets in the way of my bizarre cheapness. Despite the fight between these natural traits of mine, I still have managed to amass massive amounts of tools. I think this harks back to my days as a studio goldsmith. All of the tools were specialized and expensive... but oh sooooo cool!
Anyway....where was I... Oh yeah... scissor review. As we all know having a nice sharp pair of scissors is very important. Most people think that any old pair will do. Oooooh no.... I regularly use 5 different pair. And yes I get VERY annoyed when I see people using my scissors to cut things that they were not intended.

Julia Andrus's book Paper Transformed is one of my favorite technique based books. There are hundreds of swatches of useful techniques for altering paper. Her instructions are clear and to the point. Probably the bast part is that she doesn't use a lot of expensive equipment or supplies. Most items can be found at your local craft/art store.
