No kidding... I think you got ALL of it haha

OOh .. lookie..Donna has a competitor for personal craft store of the year haha .. Nice... :)

I think as penance to us poor folks you two need to do some reviews/projects for the main site... because I can't review things I don't have lol....

I would love to see some pics of all these paper stacks you ladies all seem to have. And I only have 3 punches and 1 corner punch and a handful of mini punches for the little guy... so anything you have that you think is cool.

...... which is all of it or you wouldn't have bought it right.... feel free to write a small review or two with pics...or in your cases.. 2000 or so lol.

Sandy - I know what you mean about being embarrassed, I was too.
I saw several things on your list that I had too and forgot to mention.

Like corner punches, only in scissors. Kinda neat cause you can turn them around. This was stuff bought YEARS ago when you had to gasp- CUT everything. I'll pull them out, take some pictures and show you. Anyone else remember them? :D Merrie

I have 6 of the 'corner' scissors. You can get 4 corner 'looks' off of each one. I cut a couple so you could see what I was talking about. :D Merrie

Merrie: I have a whole bunch of those scissors and corner scissors. More scissors than corner scissors though. I use them on occasion, but not too often.

I was in Office Depot the other day and had to laugh when I saw that they were selling
packs of the scissors. It does seem like everything comes back around....case in point, stencils. I started buying them years ago because I didn't want to pay the price that they were charging for a single die-cut. LOL.... I never had the "corner" scissors, only the border ones. I also had a lot more, but I loaned them to someone and never got them back.

Dee and NanaDonna- Remember when those scissors were ALL we had to work with. I got my first Sizzix (it was the one with the handle that you pulled down) so I could buy some alphabet dies. I was tired of running out of one letter on my sticker sheets :lol: ! When PC first came out with the Baby Bug I didn't want to get one because I had so much invested in my Sizzix and dies. Finally got the Create cause I would NEVER need to cut something 12 inches wide :roll: . Moved up to an E within 6 months and never looked back. :D Merrie

Yes, I do remember when the only thing we had were the scissors and I was horrible with them. :lol: I got my first Cricut to make headings for my scrapbook pages but always had trouble with anything else I tried to cut. I later bought the Expression, but about the same time I bought a used Gypsy from a girl who was getting divorced. Except for the eye strain, I loved using it. Now I have cartriadges hooked to it that I can't use because it's not in my name. :cry:

Now I have the Explore and look forward to learning how to use it to it's fullest advantage!!!!
