Hole-tastic

Now I know I've been a tad quiet in the past few days and unfortunately it's not because I've been busily crafting, alas no... I have however been shopping AGAIN and have bought myself a wee gadget I can ill afford but simply couldn't resist! We'll be eating spaghetti for the duration of the month but will you just look at this thing?? now I can punch holes in everything, I can bind EBooks for DH, I can make notebooks for the kids, I can make themed chunky spiral bound books of happiness for all my friends and and... I've decided to cut my losses and concentrate all my guilt on the fact that I have to bribe my children with Smarties to get dressed so we can leave the house, far better this way than to have any kind of remorse cramping my creativity!
After I recovered from my initial excitement I did a couple of trial runs to get the covers up the right way and the cut-off wires facing the back and not the front! The accompanying DVD told me it was easy but there's definately a knack to it.
As I said it really does go through everything, I can feel a bit of a recycled flower theme coming on and I promise to get this one assembled, really I do, it just needs a splash of paint first.
And to end the week I recieved post from the lovely Carole over at http://kiwicarole.blogspot.com/ This little packet of fabulousness had a bit of a sleepover at my mum's in NZ and has finally made it's way here. Carole has also given me instructions on how to attach the award badges I've recieved over the past few months and have had no idea what to do with, watch this spot, I'm on it...

I have a Zutter...just had to have it. I was able to get it at Hobby Lobby with a 40% off coupon! Haven't even opened the box. I must've had it 6 months. I'm afraid to open the box....

Oh, I can understand you very much! But ever since I participated in a Skinny Book Swap I wanted to do something like that for myself. Therefore I had to buy it, too. And with shipping from the US plus customs it really wasn't exactly inexpensive. But what am I working for?
