my favorite resources all in one place

This one took me forever to finally get finished, but I now have a page dedicated to my favorite resources. I call them the Tools I Use.


You can find the page by clicking on the SOURCES image from the sidebar over there on the right.

I’ve compiled a list of tools and products I use regularly with links to where you can purchase them. Things like my printer, colored envelopes, the alphabet stamps seen on many different projects and where I order my paper.


I’ll continue to add more products/sources when I think of them. If you have any other suggestions or questions about where I get things, leave a comment and I’ll add it!

    Hi Emily! Thanks for sharing all your tools! Random question, what plugin did you use to create your resources page? I found one called Catablog and I’m wondering if that’s what you’re using.

    Hi Emily!

    Thank you for wonderful list of books. I started reading “Pretty” yesterday and I love it! Thank you for the recommendation.

    What gallery or project plugin did you use for the tools page?

      We use a plugin called Ubergrid. Takes a little customization, but it works great!

    Hi, Emily!

    Thanks for all the great links! I was noticing when I was at the B.L. Target the other day that their party section has all of those cute paper drinking straws in a variety of colors at a great price! I think it was a 20pk for $3. You might want to check it out!

    Random question that has nothing really to do with your Sources page…other than the fact that your watercolor paints are listed. Would you every consider offering a water color course? I love seeing the paintings you’ve done and often find myself wishing I could do that. I remember you once showing a few basics but I would be interested in seeing tutorials on how you create a piece, paint with variations of color etc.

    My husband and I took our girls to Brunswick on Friday and spent some time on the shore. While there I took the cutest picture of my girls looking out at the water and using the WaterLouge App you spoke about weeks ago I transformed the picture into the cutest watercolor print!

    Thanks for this great resource! I was excited to see I already have many of the same tools! This may seem like a weird question to ask but what packaging/shipping supplies do you use to mail your art prints? I’m opening up a embroidery art shop and am having trouble deciding on the best way to ship the items. Any suggestions would be great!

      I use white stay-flat mailers, cellophane sleeves and cardboard inserts from Uline. They are a great resource for packaging supplies!

    Yay! I was searching for your paper source just the other day! Thanks for all the great links :)
