Look what I'm getting for my birthday!

Pretty awesome, isn't it? :)

My birthday isn't for a little over a week yet, but when I saw these at my Michaels store, I told my husband he'd better get one before they were gone. Everyone else has been reporting these as flying off the shelves in their stores, especially since each store only got an average of three at a time. My store was no exception. The day after he bought this one, they were all gone.

So what's the big deal about these? Well, it's a scaled-down version of a professional framer's tool. It takes 1/4" adhesive that's the stickiest around, next to redline tape, and the refills are also the cheapest with a coupon (thanks to Michaels). Add all of that together, and I think you'll understand why I really, really wanted one. The fact that it's PINK is just the icing on the cake, so to speak! My cards will stay together for sure now!

It's a bit bigger than I'm used to, and I have small hands. However, others have reported getting used to them after one session of using them (even with small hands), so I'm sure it won't be a big deal.

My husband offered to let me have it early since I know what I'm getting. (I guess he feels like that "spoils" it a bit, but I don't mind a spoiled surprise if it's something I really, really want!) I'm trying to resist the temptation, though, and wait for my birthday. Self-control, you know ... we'll see if I'm up to it! :)
