Another Year Older...Another Year Wiser...

Hi Everyone, you may not know but I celebrated another birthday yesterday, yes,I'm another year older/another year wiser and some might say that only one of those statements is true. A huge thank you for all the lovely birthday messages you sent me on social media. But you don't reach the giddy heights of senior citizenship without realising that time flies and you need to use it wisely, after all it's the only thing in this materialistic world that is still free. And who knew that this little guy was going to be a such huge time saver, again I can't thank Tim, Mario and Sizzix enough for sending me the amazing Sizzix Sidekick to play with, taking production line crafting to another level and making it so much fun.
I can't begin to describe how much I love this fabulous little machine...it's the best thing since sliced bread...well it must be love when all you want to do on your birthday is head to the cubbyhole and spend the day in his company having fun die-cutting and decorating loads and loads of tags using the dies and stamps that come in the box.
So many tags in fact, the cubbyhole has now been renamed Die Cut Central and all made from scraps of Idea-ology Christmas Paper and left over bits of white card stock, in no time at all...
 I'll be making cards with some and using the rest for parcel tags...
and the die-cutting frenzy continued, using the Sidekick to cut some of the other Thinlits in my collection...

for projects I'll be sharing with you soon.
Did you know there are only 47 more sleeps until the jolly old guy in the red suit pops down our chimneys so from now until then the Cubbyhole will be on full speed ahead Christmas production line mode with the help of my new Sidekick Best Friend. Of course, I adore my original Furry Sidekick but he's not too handy when it comes to die-cutting or helping out and now that the days have turned chillier, he much prefers snuggling up at the radiator and serenading me with the dulcet tones of his snoring.
I'll see you all on Friday to share another "Tim Holtz Inspiration Series" project...until then
Happy Crafting.
Hugs Kath xxx

Hi Kath

Happy Belated Birthday. I've been on my pink Sizzix Sidekick lots this week and I totally agree with you they save so much time. I've had mine for about 2 years and love it.
