I have to say that smartphones are probably one of the greatest inventions of all time. I use mine to organize my life! It's so cool to have everything at your fingertips. I have shared some of my favorite apps with you before (links at the end of this post) but the links I'm sharing with you today are the ones I use to make my creative life easier. And did I mention that they are all free?
Plan, Start, Succeed This is a great app for the business crafter. It's full of lots of great information.
Expense Manager Another great app for those who want a super easy accounting system for their business or their personal life. I use this one for both. Love it!
CProject This will keep any project from the smallest to the biggest nicely organized.
Memento Database Just as its name, this is a great database to keep up with your inventory or supplies!
Quilting & Sewing on the Go This is a nice app to have for those times when you are at the fabric store and you aren't sure how much fabric to purchase or need other important details pertaining to sewing and quilting.
Shopping List When you realize that you are running low on a supply you can quickly add it to your list for your next trip out. You can keep all your lists on here as well, such as your projects in line, studio "to do's" or even your grocery list.
Evernote I've said it before and I'll say it again, I love, love, love Evernote! You can organize absolutely everything in this program. This program does so much that I can't even begin to explain it in this little post, you'll need to check it out for yourself.
Craftsy If you like to see great instructional videos on the go, this app is for you. You can watch your classes on your tablet or phone while you are working out at home or in the gym.
JoAnn, Michaels, Hobby Lobby These apps are from your favorite shops. They all have great coupons, their sales ads right in your app, and even gives you the location of the nearest store when you are out and about. You can even shop from them!
The above links will take you to the Google Play store (for Android), but if you have another operating system such as for the iphone, you can find these or similar there.
If you have a favorite app for making your creative life easier, please share in the comments!

One of my most popular applique templates is my "Chunky Alphabet." I can't tell you how many requests I've gotten for a numbers and symbols template to match. Here it is! Just like the alphabet, it comes in four different sizes plus three different bonus shapes.
They can be picked up at my Craftsy Shop and Etsy Shop.
