Celebrating 45 Years…
Fiskars is celebrating 45 years of making their awesome Orange Handled Scissors. I cannot remember our house not having a pair of Fiskars scissors in it while growing up. And I can honestly say they are still my all time favorite scissors. I create with several different styles Original Orange Handled 8″, Micro Tip Comfort Grip #5, Micro Tip #5 and Non-Stick Fashion Detail #5 but the pair I seem to wear out the most are the Micro Tip #5 pair. I use these every single day as they fit perfectly in my hand and cut so precisely.
To help Fiskars celebrate the 45th anniversary of their iconic Orange-Handled Scissors, check out their page on facebook . This celebration is going to be a fun-filled 45-day countdown leading up to the first day of National Craft Month on March 1.

And now for a Maya Road sneak peek. When I found out Maya Road was releasing an Alterable Coin Purse it instantly brought me back to when I was little sitting on my grandmother’s lap opening and closing her coin purse. This photo of the two of us was taken in 1966 and I remember this day like it was yesterday. I thought her coin purse was the best thing ever. And if I’m real quite and still I can hear the click it made each time it opened and closed.
And one new flower Maya Road is releasing the I am super excited about are the new Linen Burlap Roses. The contrast between the burlap and the vintage doily on the coin purse looks amazing. You will see me using this combination more often for sure. I really like it.
Okay, it’s time for me to start packing or at least getting all the piles I have of things to bring in one spot… copies of Delight In The Seasons, last minute projects, small handmade gifts, tags to hand out stamped with an Antiquated Collection Society Lady image, business cards (cannot forget the business cards), then I have the what clothes to bring… good thing I keep it simple there… jeans and t-shirts. I’m all for comfy. Actually I’m worse than a 2 year old when it comes to anything pulling on me. I cannot stand that for one second.
Nearly CHA bound and can’t wait!
