I voted brads...even though I had no clue what they were called until I started visiting this board!!!

Eyelet's are nice and I did go crazy and buy a bunch when I first got into scrapbooking...but I rarely use them.

I like brads because I try to use the decorative eyelets, and can't seem to get them right, they end where they push into the paper weird (like maybe I set it with too much force). Brads are much easier!

Brads, but I hardly ever use them. I usually use button's more then anything else to be honest.

I choose brads but I love the look of the eyelets. I started to use them with a friend who has the Big Crop (i think thats what its called, the thingy that makes the hole and sets it all in one). I really would love to have one for me but they are kinda $$ and I need to wait a bit.

OT: Here is my baby in his new car seat, we picked it up today!

I chose brads but only because I don't have an eyelet setter. Having said that I will be getting the big bite for my birthday this week. So I can't wait to use it with all the eyelets I have but have never been able to use them.
