well in no particular order:
Cutterbee Scissors - detail cutting, distressing, paper piercing all in one tool. (not as good for longer cuts but they will do)
.05 black Sigma micron pen (brown would be nice and so would the Uni-ball white)- I just like writing with them
foam ink blending tool - I ink everything. So much faster and nicer looking than the edge of the ink pad.
Tim Holtz's Design Ruler - measuring, squaring, centring, tearing, getting evenly spaced holes with, metal edges for use with craft knife. Versatile!
water brush - curled edges can be formed easier with wet paper and once they dry they hold their shape, miraculous!! Good for fixing ink problems. A fine line of water helps me to get paper to tear where I want it to. (important since adding my trimmer would make 6 things )

Xacto knife - use it often enough, not all the time but I think if it wasn't in reach it would be weird
Trimmer - a must have.
Tonic scissors - my go to scissors.
Ranger craft mat - it is usually on my table. Use it constantly for everything from inking to heat embossing and painting - basically anything messy
Water brush, for inking and paints

Tiny attacher- because I'm lazy and the staples make my laziness look "cute"
CM black journaling pen. I even use them to write letters.
Black ranger archival ink pad-cause there is nothing that stamps crisper or cleaner.
My stampin' up detail cutting scissors- they're sharp and fit in my hand nicely.
I use these everyday!

Brown Ink pad
Black Zig pen
Date Stamp <---super important to me, to date EVERYTHING.
I don't list my paper trimmer because I use scissors on everything. Also, I left out my digi cutters or punches, because I am lazy & make tons of my own things by drawing & just cutting it out with my scissors. I pretty much end up with many labels or embellishments, by just having my scissors. Couldn't scrap w/out them!
