Take, for instance, my punch storage. The three white drawers are from Target, and I about went postal assembling the thing with its tiny, tiny screws. No more of those, thank you very much. Plastic drawers droop annoyingly under the weight of punches, so they fail to pass muster as well. Then, I found these stackable baskets at Target. Angels sang when I read the price of them (very affordable!), and the cute little handles flip in so you can stack them. It's mildly annoying to UNstack them to get at punches in the lower baskets, but it's better than the alternatives I've tried.
Now, the circle and square punches are in the white drawers, and all the others are sorted into baskets by theme, such as leaves/trees, flora, hearts and stars, and borders. Although where in the world does my Martha Stewart cupcake punch belong? None of my categories really fits it. And this bothers me.
I'm sure you're not interested in my bothers, so let's move on to my punch inventory. This is not ideal, either, but it works. At least, it does when it's up-to-date and I remember to take it to the store when I need to buy punches.
Since I was too tired to stamp today, I updated the punch inventory. This lead me to the realization that I have purchased a lot of punches lately. I don't seem to be able to control myself. I'm BINGING on punches.
I won't show you all the pages, simply because I don't want you to know just how punch drunk I am. Just believe that there are a lot of them, and let's move right along to a card that USES a punch.
I'm deeply annoyed by the fact that subtle colors don't photograph well. Or perhaps it's just that I don't photograph them well enough to do them justice. But really, this card is far more intersting in real life. And you can read the sentiment well, too. For the record, it's hi there .
And here's a question for you. If one can be punch drunk, can one have a punch hangover? If so, I think I have one. Just as long as I don't wake up with Mike Tyson's tiger in my bathroom and a tooth missing, it'll all be okay.
