Celebrating 45 Years…

Jan 25, 2012

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. Like them on Face­book to join the cel­e­bra­tion and check out all the con­tests, prizes, fun facts, artist fea­tures and more.

AND Fiskars was gen­er­ous enough to give me a pair of their awe­some scis­sors to give­away so, if you want a chance to win a pair just leave me a com­ment telling me about your favorite Orange Han­dled Scis­sors.

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!
