ETA: Price is $22.10 on 11/30.

My early New Years present arrived. I’m surprised at how sturdy it feels and that it takes larger than I thought it would. It also really holds tight to the couple surfaces I’ve tried it on.

I don’t think I’ll use it that much - Gemini Junior is perfect for my not-great-achy hands, but it will be handy for just a quick little die cut.

I find I'm using my Sidekick much more than I thought I would. I have so many word dies and today I sat at my desk and cut out almost all the Merry Christmas dies I have to put on cards since all but 1 fit in the Sidekick.

Now that I have one I can understand why you’d find that quick and easy!

It would be nice if Sizzix made extended pads for long, narrow dies. Though the reason I moved from a manual machine to the Gemini Junior is because manually cranking hurts my hand.

So I’ll definitely grab the Sidekick for the occasional small die - faster than with a full-sized machine and just a few quick cranks. But overdoing it isn’t in the cards. Ha.
