Lack of Tools
Am I the only person in America without a garage full of tools? I have the basics: hammer, nails, assorted screwdrivers. I'm also proud of the fact that I have one drawer in the kitchen designated to every battery size known to man. But this week I found out that I'm missing the true necessary tools to be considered "crafty". I just filmed a few episodes of a new show for the DIY Network. We made a variety of items including candle holders made out of concrete & belt buckles out of silver clay. I've learned that to be a successful crafter you need, not only time, patience & steady hands but : a nail gun with an air compressor, a blow torch, a kiln and assorted acid sprays & stains. Does everyone but me have a workshop in their garage? Where do you park your car?
