Alright, I'm almost embarrassed to tell you this but I'm going to anyway! About two months ago while browsing thru my favorite blogs, I came across the cutest little book marks made with jumbo paper clips, background papers and this thing called a cuttlebug. Now, I had never heard of the cuttlebug but I knew that I WANTED TO MAKE THOSE JUMBO BOOKMARKS, and to make them you needed this thing called a cuttlebug. So I did a little research, dug out my Sunday paper that was in the recylcle bin by now and pulled out a coupon for Michaels.
Next day I marched on down to Michaels and found me a Cuttlebug and die-cuts AND a couple of folders and headed back home to try out my new toy. Well I got home and took my purchases out of the bag and placed them in my stamp room then realized I didn't have the jumbo clips, so I got in my car and headed on over to the Wal-Mart and bought 3 boxes of jumbo clips (3) and went back home. I think it was maybe 3 days later when I finally took the cuttlebug out of the box and placed it on my desk (boy it sure looked pretty sitting there)! Everyday I would get up and say to myself, self, you really need to do something with this cuttlebug! But day after day I just kept putting it off. What I didn't put off was buying more die-cuts & folders from Electric Paperie, I think I own every folder made for this thing!
Yesterday I finally said enough is enough and I broke down and made myself use it, what was I afraid of? Next challenge is to finally make those jumbo bookmarks! I think tonight is the night!
Well that's my silly Cuttlebug story, hope I didn't bore you with the details! Thanks for stopping by.
