I'm not sure why I'm doing this! (BLOGGING) My favorite tool is a freshly sharpened pencil. Or, maybe my favorite tool is my little hand held metal pencil sharpener. But a good sharp knife works to sharpen a pencil, that's what my daddy used to sharpen his pencils. And a knife can cut onions! (He didn't cut onions with his.) Another favorite tool is the list.

What is the difference between a tool and a supply?

Hmm, a tool and a supply... Good question! Maybe tools don't themselves change as much as they are used to change the supplies... But that's just a theory. ;-)

I read that Frank Loyd Wright was never without the knife he used for sharpening pencils--a task he took up as needed, or when he was bored, or something he did when he found his company to be boring--and he was meticulous about the point. Curious obsession.

I am so glad you are blogging!

I guess I have the same favorite tools as you, except for the knife...I use a good pencil sharpener. As for the supplies I have the same loves except I don't use Watercolours but gouache paint...my favourite being Maimeri extra fine.

I have never thought there was a difference before, maybe the tools are what we always have in our homes and the supplies we have to go out and buy.
