The Best Tool Ever!

I love to handstitch. There is just something soothing about it for me. The only thing I hated about handstitching was pre-poking the holes in my paper. My poor fingers would be throbbing afterwards. It is quite uncomfortable to use a needle and your bare fingers to punch holes through your paper, especially if you are using cardstock.

One day, I was at a crop and discovered a lady using this tool...


It is the Tim Holtz Retractable Craft Pick. The lady was nice enough to let me play with it. I discovered that this tool is the bomb! You can pierce through paper, cardstock, grungeboard, and chipboard like butter! I immediately ran to the store and bought me one of these. It was the best investment I have ever made. So if you are tired of aching fingers from trying to punch holes in your paper for handstitching, try out this Retractable Craft Pick. You won't regret. Trust me.

Until later!

My paper piercer is one of my favorite tools ever . . . but I haven't tried the Tim Holtz Retractable one! Looks like it would be a great addition to my arsenal. ;) Thanks for th recommendation!
