I did it!


I have had the Bind-it-All for over six months, took it out of the box, and never used it. I kept MEANING to read the directions and figure it out, but just never took the time. Well, I loved Beate's Address books and others I've seen around, so I took mine off the shelf and experimented on this little book. They are SO much fun and the Bind-it-All is SO easy to use! I'm amazed and kicking myself that I didn't get it out before now! Now that I've experimented, you can be sure I'll be using that baby ALL the time! I have a huge box of wires that I bought with the machine, so I think I'm set!

I used my new So Many Sayings set for the "friends forever" image. Like many others, I cut mine up and mounted them individually onto dominos. They work pretty well and I know I'll definitely use them more often when I can see them individually. Hard to see in the picture, but the center is a yellow Rhinestone brad...I can tell I'll be using those a LOT...they add a lot of bling!

I did get some wonderful news today, but I can't share yet! Woohoo! I'm jumping up and down! I know...I'm a tease!

C/S: Bashful Blue, So Saffron, Certainly Celery, Whisper White, Cutie Pie DP

This is great. I need to get that machine. Between this and all of Lisa's books I don't know how I have resisted.
