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!

    So did you get photoshop? Did you download the update?

      I’m not gonna download the update. I’ll just buy the new version. Then I can put in on any future computers. This is just with my old elements version I already have.

    Oh, yes, I love the Ginghers. Not too pricey with a 50% off JoAnns coupon!

    Who knew even scissors themselves could be so artistic!

    So happy to see you having fun with scissors. Now, don’t run with them!

    See, I have to disagree…

    Unfortunately, my favorite tool is a fork.

    The account went on to say that, the disease first discovered in
    Uganda back in 2001, called The Banana Bacterial Wilt or BBW.

    The time of germination does vary and will depend on several different factors.
    It helps the body to function in its peak performance and keeps away many diseases.
