NEW STUFF!


Maybe I should say "new person" too--she is hardly "stuff" after all! Remember the baby card I posted a few days back? Well! This is the SWEET ANGEL I made it for! She is the daughter of one of my husband's co-workers and I got to hold her last evening when we went to deliver the card and the gifts I got for her 2 big brothers (I always try to take a little something for siblings when there's a new baby--it makes them feel important, too! She slept through the 4 of talking around her. Seeing the pictures-and getting NEW (craft) STUFF has made today almost bearable! (Theresa-God bless her-and I spent the better part of our afternoon freezing to death at a friends house waiting for a repairman to show up-who never showed--that's the short version of a long(er) story!)

When she came...she brought with her my new BIG SHOT DOCTOR'S BAG! She hadn't even tore it open to look at it like I told her to! Such restraint I don't have! Lol! I have looked at this for month's now-and finally with their spring sale (it goes until the end of March---so you've not missed out yet!) I splurged and got it. I have to confess---I thought it was over priced. Until I've laid eyes on it! It appears to be very well made. It has the handles as well as the shoulder strap-two outside pockets-one inside full-sized pocket and then smaller pockets along the other side. It also has a metal frame that "pops" the bag open and keeps it that way. It is black, white and pink plaid on the outside (my photo doesn't show that well-that fine white line that appears to be glowing is actually the pink pinstripe in the plaid...). The inside...is pink with white, black and brown polka dots! As you can see, it holds the big shot, the cutting plates as well as the folder with PLENTY of room left over for embossing folders, etc. If I were to change one thing, I think I would add 1" in the width of it but it fits snugly as it is and that's fine. I will probably add some blue bling/ribbon/something to tie it in with my craft tote bag. I have invested in some great tools lately and if I ever find the binding for the handles hope to make a brown and robin's egg blue bag to hold my 12"x12" Tonic Cutter along with my Score Pal and Cutting Pad. I also got a bottle of Crystal Effects (I like it much better for giving a glossy finish to embellishments than Liquid Glass) and a set of stamps for free as part of the spring sale promo. These are the new unmounted to be used with the clear blocks. I like the sentiments and can't wait to use the "the bigger the candles, the bigger the wishes" stamp with the Candlelight and Piece of Cake sets from Close to My Heart!
Time to go find a good book, a warm blankie and a CAT to curl up with--they enjoyed the box the doctor's bag came in so everyone has something new to play with...! Don't forget to e-mail Theresa with your Sale-a-bration order! Until next time, happy stamping and scrapping. Blessings, Sharon
