Howdy! Hiya! Hello! ...whazzup? *giggle* I never say "howdy" or "whazzup", but they make me laugh this morning, so there you are!
It's Wednesday, and you know what that means, right? Bare it all, baby! Mistress Julia makes it possible for anyone and everyone to throw open the doors and share their workspace. No matter how tidy, messy, boring or chaotic it might seem to YOU, it's probably better than ours so come over to The Stamping Ground and play!
Last night I was doing some assembly-line stuff...
...until this happened:
The lever broke. Gah! See the white parts? They belong inside, not outside. *sigh*
This is the best punch in the world (for me) and gave me 10 good months. Frankly, I expected more than 10 months from a $58 punch, though. As it seems there is only one manufacturer of this kind of punch, I have emailed them to see what can be done. I'll keep you posted on their customer service.
Update: They are sending a new one right away! After I wrote this post I checked email and there was my answer - probably written before their morning coffee. Wow, thanks so much to Dee at Easy Earring Card!
In other news, I had a 40% off Hobby Lobby coupon burning a hole in my pocket the other day. The few things I *needed* were already on sale so I trolled for something else. This is what I found:
Ranger's new Specialty Stamping paper! Of course, it's *only* ATC size, but you get what's available, right? I've wanted to try it and can use the size on cards and tags as well as for ATC's and ACEO's. It's quite smooth! They say you can use alcohol inks on it as well as a host of other mediums. I have to clear off my desk before I can use it, though...
Have *YOU* tried it yet? What is your favorite paper to ink up or stamp on? I'm looking for suggestions!
Happy WOYWW! This week I will visit more desks. :) Yay!
Oh, and guess what?! We're going to spend 6 glorious September days in and around London. So very excited! I'll be calling out for flea market/car boot sale suggestions as well as off-the-beaten-track places to visit. :) *squee*
