It's mine...

So h-o-w long have I been wanting a Making Memories Selfsharpning Magnetic Trimmer?!? Like...since they were released. Almost before that. How many times have I been so close to checking out on-line with one in my basket and then stopped myself because of the price?!? Too many to count! LOL! So yesterday I did it. I pressed that little magic button called "submit order"...

And guess what arrived 20 minutes ago? Yay!! Thanks Dougie! I have my trimmer! But WOW is it big!! I'm seriously worrying where it will go in my TINY scrapping room. Folded out it takes up all the scrapping space on my desk (!) so a good plan needs to be formed very, very quickly!! LOL! If you have one - how/where do you store yours? Please share with me :)

Still no sign of my "Love Elsie" stuff from the US. Tomorrow it's 2 weeks since it was posted (airmail). I really wonder where it's gone to. I would almost think it was lost if it wasn't for us waiting for two other things from the US too. For them all to be lost would be too much of a co-incidence. But where are they? Wonder if there's a problem with the US to UK post at the moment? Something is not quite right somewhere...

Right I'm off to have some fun with my new trimmer. Cutting paper strips from scrap paper. When you have a new super shiny trimmer it might just keep you entertained for a few minutes. I do need to try it properly after all, right? :) And who knows, maybe I can make a start on a layout too...

Anso ... I think there may be something wrong with the USA - UK post at the minute. I was waiting on 3 parcels, one of which arrived today that was sent 15 days ago airmail. The other 2 that are still outstanding were sent 14 days ago (my Love Elsie stuff that I'm so desperate to get my hands on) and another 10 days ago. So I think it is probably slow at the minute for whatever reason. I agree that waiting for more than 1 parcel is reasurring that they aren't lost, but still frustrating! Enjoy your new trimmer. :)

Hi, Anso,

I love reading your blog, and I saw something that I want to know more about--those Chinese stamps that you used on some little squares.
