Thanks, Kelly. My uncle was 2 months shy of his 93rd birthday. He was in good health until a year ago. I hope I'm as active as he was at that age.
I joined this challenge to try to keep me from impulse spending. For the most part I'm doing pretty good. However, I was looking at the ScrapRack website and they have Freestyle Mouse kit from Purple Cows. It sells for $29.95. The kit has a freestyle cutter shaped like a skinny computer mouse with a straight blade included, 12 different cutting blades, a cutting mat, and a ruler if you want to cut straight lines. The blades alone sell for around $5 each. So I broke down and ordered one and got it in today's mail. Just played with it on some scraps. I'm glad I caved. It's going to be so handy to use next weekend during the art show. Oh yeah, you can get this at the Purple Cows website, too, for the same price.
