You can color brads with sharpies too!
I'm so glad I'm not the only person who has a great inventory of eyelets...and then ends up using brads more often. My reasons for usually choosing brads over eyelets are the same as everyone else has shared. Brads are easier, quicker and use less tools.

I love eyelets....don't know why. A lot of noise. Although I do have it down to one good whack.
Brads are nice too.
A place for both depending on the personality of the card/scrapbook page.

I like brads mostly because they are easier.
I like brads because they come in a zillion shapes and styles.
I struggle with eyelets, even after being show how "easy" they are to use by the expert at the local stamping store.

I voted brads. When I started stamping I was so into eyelets and now they're taking up space in my craft area. I find I do most of my card making after my little one is in bed so to add an eyelet I would have to go into the garage or out on the patio and sometimes it's just too cold outside!!

I forgot about that! I've seen a lot of eyelets in different shapes too, but not as many, not as affordably, and I just don't care to use a horse with a big hole in its abdomen on a card. It just feels like bad karma or something.

I also prefer brads. I use a large needle, like for darning or one you would use for tying a quilt with yarn, to make my holes. You can put a hole anywhere this way and it is so much more portable stuck thru a piece of fabric with a couple smaller needles that I use to start the hole if it is thru a several layers.

I use both but brads are much easier to use. I started with eyelets and I still love to use them with fiber. You can actually make letters using eyelets & fiber. (It is really neat looking).
