Look What I Got!

 My hubby complains every year that he doesn’t know what to get me for Christmas so I gave him a specific list of four items. On the internet, so he could access it anywhere. No excuses. Christmas came and went and the #1 item on my Amazon Wish List still sat there, un-bought. I really, really REALLY wanted a Rotatrim for cutting all the chipboard I go through creating Address Books. I put it on the list in late summer. He looked at the list and decided that since it was last on the list, having added a Kindle Fire and accessories in late November, that I really didn’t want it any longer.
 I need to back up and tell you that when I get really behind, around October, that he cuts chipboard for those Address Books for me. The old fashioned way. With a rotary cutter, lip edged ruler, and cutting mat. Takes forever. Not always accurate. So in early January, I asked him to cut chipboard for me. (I’m no dummy) One thing led to another and, lo and behold, two days after he left for a 9-day trip, my Rototrim arrived!  Yay!  Yay for him.

Thank you, Jim The Gentleman Crafter, for recommending it. Cuts great, never needs sharpening and it’s light years faster than cutting chipboard by hand! I LOVE it.
