A - Acrylic rolling pin. If you've ever worked with polymer clay, then this basic tool is a must-have.
B - Bead crimper. Fellow beaders, how many times have you attempted to use a crimp tool in your jewelry designs, only to have it break and fall apart just as you thought you were done? A crimping tool won't keep it from ever happening again, but it'll definitely keep you from breaking 75% of your tubes.

C - Card-stock. Yes, the primary focus of my craft room is my card-making business, so you can bet I'm fully stocked. (please forgive my corny craft puns)
D - Double-sided foam tape. This is a great multipurpose item that doesn't cost a lot at all. Use them for hanging posters or adding a little dimension to greeting cards and scrapbook pages.
E - Embroidery floss. For embroidering practically anything, this stuff needs no introduction.

F - Feathers. Ever since I was a little girl, I've had a love for feathers. I also had a dad who was really into Native American crafts, so they were always in abundance throughout my childhood.
G - Glue gun, a necessity for any household.

H - Hole punches. Use shaped punches in cards and stationery, or punch simple holes to make confetti!
I - Ink markers. These are so handy for stamping and allow you to customize your stamps' color schemes in ways that typical ink pads just can't.
J - Jute twine. I love using twine for rustic decor hacks, but it's also durable enough for garden-work!

K - Kraft paper. The stuff is super cheap and makes a great photo backdrop!
L - Lettering stamps. Great for card-making, as they can be used over and over again, and in any combination.

M - Mason jars are definitely the go-to supply for country decor projects and countless recipes.
N - Nippers. I love my adorable Gingher stork nippers. They're the prettiest!

O - Organizers. Studios can get cluttered and messy really quickly. Your ability to organize using randomly-discovered containers will become your greatest asset.
P - Paper trimmer. If you want to cut straight lines every single time, you need to invest in one of these.

Q - Q-tips make great little paintbrushes or cleaning tools and can be found literally anywhere.
R - Ribbon. In every color, width, and design, the versatility of ribbon knows no bounds.

S - Scoring board by Martha Stewart. This little thing helps me to score straight lines, for perfectly folded cards every time.
T - Twine, especially baker's twine! You can find it in every color of the rainbow, and it really adds that little dash of whimsy to scrap-booking and card projects.

U - Utility knife. For all those things you never expected to need cutting, this tool will come in handy.

V - Vise clamp. While I currently don't own one, a vise would be great for all the wood-working projects that I plan and never follow through with (perhaps due to lack of a vise clamp). *Update* My grandma read this post and sent me an amazing vise that used to belong to my dad, so I hope to be doing some more wood projects in the future!

W - Washi tape. Oh, come on. It's just tape, but it also happens to have adorable patterns all over it.

X - X-Acto knife. This is my go-to precision cutting tool for paper, cardstock, and duct tape. Hands down.

Y - Yardstick. A super useful tool for hitting people who use your nice fabric shears for cutting paper.
Z - Zippers. Maybe because they're functional and fun, or maybe there's just nothing else that starts with Z.
