Blue Monday: One More Christmas Wrap-Up

Blue Monday is hosted weekly by Smiling Sally.
To see more offerings, or to participate yourself, please head on over to her blog.

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.


  1. Oh we're never too old for new toys! I do like the teal blue color on the cinch. Happy Blue Monday, Joy.

  2. I'm used to the laminator--a huge thing--at our school, so this one looks tiny!

  4. Oh how nice to ask and be granted for it!

    Can you believe that? It's Friday now and I am just getting around with Blue Monday entries. Kids are sick and all.. sigh.

    If you get a chance, here's my BLUE
