Christmas just seems to be hanging around a long time this year. Even though we UN-decorated right after the first of January, I'm still putting stuff away. Still have the Christmas cards to sort through and store (I always save the cards -- at least for a year
or two...or twenty).
And today I'm playing with my Christmas presents. I asked for (and got) crafty stuff this year, and these are my main treasures -- a Scotch Thermal Laminator and a Cinch binding machine!
Wonderful things! I've wanted the laminator for years now, and kept talking myself out of it. Love to laminate, but just never had space for it before (the new house has a craft room!). Yeah, I know -- the laminator has not a spot of blue
on it -- what can I say? Hmmmmm. Well, the candles are blue
, but they weren't Christmas gifts -- they were just there on the table.
And I love, love, love the Cinch! Even though I really haven't used it yet! I've played with it, though, and I can tell we're destined for a beautiful friendship. And isn't that a lovely blue
trim? See, there's blue
in this post after all!
OK, here's another shot of the Cinch. I am soooo in love.
Anyway, hope everyone has a great Blue Monday
. I know I'm a little late getting this up, but I've been having too much fun playing with my toys.
