And I know I'm more creative than many.
Well I thought I was more creative than many before I found Pinterest.
Now I think, sure I'm crafty, but not so much creative, I seek out my inspiration as oppose to come up with it myself.
On the weekend I was having a chat to another mum and we were talking about crafty tools. You know the must haves that make your creative life so much easier.
My top 3 tools for a wannabe Crafty Mumma:
1. Hot Glue Gun
Remember standing there holding something down waiting for the glue to set? Well wait no more. Hot glue, which is dispensed out of a glue gun is so instant, your biggest worry is gluing your fingers.
I picked mine up from bunnings for about $20.
I made the headband and hat using my glue gun.
2. Staple Gun
What is it with guns already! I love my staple gun. Perfect for stapling items into wood, especially when you want to hold something with a bit of tension. E.g. fabric over a canvas. Think bedroom makeover.

Not only useful for laminating certificates and the like, a laminator is very handy for creating flash cards, games of memory. We've even been known to make icy pole stick puppets, laminating people cut out from photos.
What's your prized tool when it comes to being a crafty mumma? Or does the thought of crafting make you stomach turn?
