Craftsman Is What’s For Christmas Plus Giveaway

I wrote a post a few weeks ago about Sears and about how much I love Craftsman tools.  I like their selection and I really like the warrenty that Sears tools offer. They are pretty much guarnteed for life against defect and if you break one of their hand tools they will replace it with no questions ask.

Sears asked me to host a give away for their Craftsman Nextec 12.0 Volt Right Angle Impact Driver. I currently don’t own one of these myself but after reading throught the specs this is one my list of tools that I will be asking for this Christmas.

Here are the product details for the Craftsman Nextec 12.0 Volt Right Angle Impact Driver:

Product Description

NEXTEC 12.0 Volt Right Angle Impact Driver Compact and powerful, the right angle design is ideal for getting into tight spaces and handling the tough tasks that your everyday drill can’t reach or handle. This powerful impact driver delivers more torque and works faster than “full sized” 18 Volt drills. The innovative impact mechanism absorbs the twisting action associated with most other drills and applies it to the work piece so your hand doesn’t twist with the tool.

    • Innovative, Compact , Ergonomic Design Powerful and compact, weighing only 2.2lbs with the battery providing extra comfort and reducing user fatigue.

Craftsman Guaranteed For Life!

I have used Craftsman tools my entire adult life and feel why should I use anything else since I already love the tools I am using. I recently received the Craftsman 19-piece inch and metric universal socket set and I have to say I am glad I received this to add to my already large collection.

One of the biggest reasons to use Craftsman tools is that they are guarantees forever meaning if you ever break a tool all you need to do it take it to a Sears store to have it replaced no questions asked. I will say though that I have never broken a Craftsman product which is a testament to the durability of Craftsman.

For those who love Craftsman as much as I do here is some additional information on the 19-piece inch and metric universal socket set:

  • Ratchet with quick-release button and 45-tooth ratcheting mechanism provides 8-degree ratcheting arc
  • Inch sizes: 1/4 thru 3/4-inch
  • Metric sizes: 8 thru 11, 13, 14, 16 thru 18 mm
Craftsman provides people with tools that they can use and pass down from generation to generation.  When I moved into my first apartment I remember my grandfather giving me Craftsman tools that he used and that I still use to this day which if you think about it is pretty cool.  I am hoping one day I am able to pass my tools down to Shaun for him to use.

Craftsman tools make the perfect gift so if you need a gift for someone this holiday season take a look at the Craftsman 19-piece inch and metric universal socket set or any tool for that matter.  I can guarantee you whoever you buy Craftsman for will be happy you did. Check out the Sears Holiday Tools Catalog online and at your nearest Sears store.

Adding Fiskars to Craft Time

Craft time is probably one of Shae’s most favorite times of day. We don’t get to do a project everyday but a couple times a week is good progress for us. We’ve been stocking on supplies but were lacking tools. Fiskars sent us some great additions to help with embellishing and adding those fun final touches.

Edgers- decorative shaped scissors that add flair to any project
Squeeze Punches-easy to use punch to create instant shapes
Paper Trimmers- get straight cuts in a snap from almost any type of paper
Border Punches-instant grass without specks of paper flying around

With the above tools and our existing stash of supplies Shae has been able to create some really fun new projects all part of our #300CraftsforKids Campaign along with GummyLump.  Here are a couple crafts that we’ve accomplished over the last couple weeks.

cutting legs for the jellyfish

hawaiian lei flowers made with punch

Shae’s able to use the scissors and punches with just a little assistance. Her lines may not be straight, her painting my not provide full coverage and her cuts may be off center but she’s enthusiastic about creating things to show off to others. She loves the flower punches and carries stacks of them in her purse to hand out to anyone that she thinks deserves one.
Thanks Fiskars for taking our crafts to a whole new level.
