Tip Tuesday

Good Morning! Hope your day is a beautiful day.

Mine started out a little stressful. We have a foster puppy that loves to bark at other dogs. And her bark sounds mean and scary even though she only wants to play. We purchased a citronella dog collar that worked well on a walk but not so much in our truck. This morning I was looking for the collar so that the pup could come with us to school but I could not find it. Hubby put it away. So we went to school without it. And I'm sure you can figure out how quickly I found it when we got home LOL.

After settling my daughter, I came downstairs to work. I have a lot due last week, next week, and in a month. So what do I do, play with my scraps. What is it we are called, ProCraftinators. :)

Lately, my cutting hasn't been as smooth as I like. Last week I changed a blade that I had changed within the last month and normally my blades can last up to 6 months. It did feel better but still not what I like. The mat I'm cutting on is one of my really expensive large mats and I can't buy a replacement one right now. And the sore spot is the place where I cut small pieces. While cutting my scraps this morning, I had the bright idea to use one of my smaller, cheaper mats on top of my large expensive one for scrap cutting. I think this is a good solution and wish I would have thought of it sooner, before I started to damage my mat. Do you have a separate place to cut scraps and large WOF cuts? I'd love to hear if you have had the same issue and what your solution is.
