Having been and always will be a tomboy, raised by a mechanic father who could fix anything and a fix-it-yourself mom, I have always been a bit handy with tools and fixing things myself. So having tools around the house has always been a must.
A few years ago, I was introduced to a company called Tomboy Tools (now called Project Home) and fell instantly in love with their company and product. Started by three women homeowners who had projects to do, they figured for a variety of reasons that they could do it themselves without waiting for someone else to do them.
They starting using tools designed for men, who have bigger hands and more strength than women, and decided to design their own tools designed for women. These durable, lightweight and ergonomically designed tools are as tough and durable as any of the Craftsman, Snap-on, Stanely or any other tool manufacturer out there. And they are PINK! And they have power tools!
Now while I am definately not a pink person, I have a lot of these tools. Not only are they easier to find in a dark toolbox, but I can leave my pink box knife
