Ever since I started making jewelry, I'm pretty easy to buy for as far as gifts are concerned. I love getting tools and was hoping Santa would bring me a drill set (he did) amongst other things. But one gift that made me laugh out loud with delight was the 4 piece floral tool set, a present from my DH who has a wonderful sense of humor.

More and more women today are able to do basic household repairs and DIY home decor. The popular home tv channels may have something to do with it. There are also many divorced/widowed/single women who have no choice but to learn to be handy in the home. Tool manufacturers have thus responded by coming out with lightweight power tools designed for smaller hands. Evidently, they also think that women like theirs feminized too!

I can't wait to use the scissors, tape measure and hammer at workshops! They make great conversation pieces. The hammer and screwdriver unscrew to reveal more parts making this a very handy basic pair to have of my own for the house. It will save me having to rummage through DH's tool box. Hmmm, perhaps that's why he bought me these....
