What did we do before youtube? I look it up for everything these days!
Ditto about the Big Shot. I love mine and use it constantly! I don't know what the skinny shim thing is, but I haven't needed it so I guess it doesn't matter. When I first got the Big Shot I wasn't sure whether I got the right tool (instead of CB or Cricket, etc.), but I have since come to the conclusion that the Big Shot was the absolute perfect tool for my purposes. I've never missed not having any other.
I agree also about YouTube. It is amazing the things you can learn about there. I sometimes spend hours just browsing videos.
