R.I.P. Guillotine!!!

Yesterday, my rather temperamental guillotine decided to die on me :o( I've had it just over a year but I've worn a big groove in the blade so it was sticking when I was cutting, especially on paper. Alas, this story has a happy ending. I knew I wanted another guillotine type rather than a slide trimmer as I prefer them. I asked a few crafty people on the docrafts website for advice on what I should buy as a replacement and was told by all of them to get a x-cut. After a bit of looking on the net I found the pink maxi x-cut guillotine at crafty devils on sale for £24.99 instead of £34.99 so I bagged a bargain. To get free P+P I also bought 3 of the new x-cut border punches which are (only) £3.99 each. I'm really mad with myself for having to buy this as I've already spent a fortune on crafty stuff this month but I feel lost without my trusty cutter! I do not want to delve back into the dark ages with a craft knife and a cutting board! Even my hubby said "well, we'll have to get you another one won't we!" - Yay!
Am off today so I'm going to tidy up my craft room as it looks like a bomb's hit it - literally! I'd love to take pictures of my fabulous space but at the moment it's a deathtrap wading through plastic boxes of stuff. I need to be ruthless and get rid of stuff I know I won't use but I find it really difficult as I am a terrible hoarder (which I blame my parents for! Lol)

Thanks for listening!
