Sizzix sale and storage

I received my order from the sizzix sale in record time this year in fact in they arrived via a courier last Thursday. Shame the sale was not as good as the previous years, but I still managed to find a few that I liked, and so needed, lol



Not sure I've said before, but having a daughter who is a dental nurse has some perks. As she attends the dental showcase in Birmingham every year and she and her fellow colleagues acquire some free goodies, one of which were these boxes filled up with toothpaste, toothbrushes and mouthwash.... OK it was not the contents I was so much interested in, but the boxes, as they were the perfect size for my....


Decorative strips...

You can fit at least 25 strips in each box. As you can see I have 2 filled up so far and the thirds has paper and spare cutting pads that I picked up when I was in America a few years back at the moment, till I see more strips I like, lol...



Coming soon, my storage for thin dies....

FIFTY Sizzix strips??? FIFTY? Oh my goodness ... not to mention all the other goodies you got in the sale (I got a few bits but it wasn't any where near as good as I remember it being last year, but the site was every bit as slow as last year!) Not a sniff of an alphabet set either ...
