I was working on my hubby's Bday card when an order came in for some customers. Needless to say, I stopped work on the card and sorted the order. But the paper trimmer has some of the paper I'm using and, if you look up by the folded OTT light to the left, you can see the dies I'm using and a bit the the project just to the right of the dies. Far left are a bunch of finished cards that I want to send to a Be Brave card drive for people with/survived cancer and/or caregivers. I think I'll be pretty busy Friday when I get another break.
Later today I head to church to help set up and work a small carnival-style party for kids to give them a safe and secure place for Halloween. We have games and food and LOTS of candy! The last few years we've had over 400 show up, including parents. It will last a couple hours and we'll have a couple breaks to hand out door prizes and give a gospel message. Then Thursday I go back and assist cleaning the church (my regular job). This event is a lot of fun but a LOT of work and I'll barely be able to drive home for exhaustion!
I teach a monthly class and my old Tonic guillotine style trimmer just doesn't do the job anymore. So when I was in Tucson last Saturday I stopped by Hobby Lobby and guess what I found!
I rubbed some black paint in the numbers then rubbed off the excess. Yeah, the paint didn't all rub off where I wanted it to but I can see the numbers!!! And this baby has quite the light at the cutter bar!
That thing will blind you! Love the lifetime warranty on the rotary cutter. I keep the paper on the trimmer in a nice little drawer underneath the cutting area. I haven't used it yet for making card kits but that will be next week.
Now I know this was a bit photo heavy but you've reached the end! Please head over to the Stamping Ground and check out other links to desks. I'll have to visit off and on the rest of the week since I'll be busy.
