Today my newest toy finally arrived in the mail! The 7gypsies Binderie punch.
I got it for only $19.99 from the Peachy Cheap website. What a deal! I have visions of all the wonderful books I'll create using this little tool - a book to log all the books I read, a book to list all the books I want to read, a book to log all the things I knit, a book to list favourite quotes - yes, I'm that type of obsessive person and this little machine will be drilling perfectly round perfectly spaced holes through all the covers and pages! Does it get any better than this? ;-)
I took a trip to Jen's house this morning - no small feat for me, the person who doesn't like to drive and has a morbid fear of getting lost! But I made it there and back successfully and we spent the day working on our "secret project". We spent hours planning the whole thing (kinda like doing an outline for English class - now I can understand why my teachers always insisted on those being done!) As much as we'd love to share the whole process of it with you in detail, out of consideration for the recipients of said project we can't reveal much about it right now, but we'll be showing tiny sneak-peeks now and again. After working together today we learned that we are very different scrappers with very different ways of working and we had a lot of fun in the process. How lucky am I to be able to share this great hobby with my sister? Very.
