Remember how I told you I was going to do March of the Tools with Heather Bailey? Thinking it over for about 10 seconds, I decided that my favorite basic tool is scissors….Does that make me pathetic? Here are few pair of mine for you to see!
I won my first pair of Ghinger‘s in a 4-H sewing something-a-rather ( I don’t remember exactly what the contest was – if it was county fair, state fair, some other random thing – sorry…but I do remember my mom was WAY excited – and I was like ‘Okay…they are scissors.’ Little did I know….little did I know ) Ghinger’s are on the little bit pricey side as far a scissors go…but I’ve tried the less expensive versions here and there, and well, all I can say is, spend the money – it’s worth it.
The last pair of scissors (or are they the first pair? hmm…in any case, the ones that aren’t sewing scissors) are my Cutco kitchen scissors. I LOVE LOVE LOVE kitchen scissors. I use them all the time. I honestly don’t understand how anyone manages in a kitchen without a good pair of scissors. I use them to cut fruits, veggies, herbs, pizza, meat, boxes etc etc etc. We inherited our Cutco scissors. Cutco is awesome cutlery! We’ve bought a few additional pieces since inheriting the first set. *Ahem* Yes, it’s bit pricey too (do we see a pattern here?) but SOOOOO worth it. In my opinion, it’s worth holding out until you can afford the nice stuff. True for many aspects of my life….
I think I’m going to combine my scissor post with a little bit of photoshop too – because it’s my blog and I felt like playing a bit.

(I think i’ll start posting all my photos this way…isn’t it fun?)
I have no idea, I was just applying a bunch of photoshop effects.
I doubt I could duplicate it if I had to…
Thanks for playing with me….see you later!
