  2. Ok so i know for most its not a worry to find an old pair of scissors in the kitchen cupboard or the kids craft draw. But for me its one of my more used tools for every day and i can get very upset when someone mistakes them for paper cutting scissors ( omg i could cry Or have a melt down )

    Sad i know but a fresh cut of ribbon can be quite satisfying in an odd way, Rather than being cut and the scissors snagging or pulling on the ribbon so you have to cut it 2 or 3 times just to get it straight or clean.

     

    Ive spent years searching for a perfect pair of scissors, from ones from the pound shop ( thinking they are cheep i can buy loads and the will last me ages) to a pair from a well known fabric shop costing over £30 ...... Yes i know i said over £30 , and please dont tell Mr PINK as he still to this day thinks they were half price and i had a £10 voucher for the shop.....

    Well all i can say is Price doesnt matter !!!!

    Being so chuffed with my new Gold plated diamond encrusted unicorn horn scissors ( well they should of been made like that for the price i paid) i start my work trying to find more and more to cut as they were doing a great job. but after a few weeks they became blunt, i was gutted ! i couldnt believe these had only lasted a few weeks, so thought id get them sharpened just to keep them going just a little longer, ( which also cost me another £10 )

    So come home from a long day of rushing about and push my shopping bags on the side and carry on with me day. 2 days off and getting back to work i go to my Scissor draw and can't find my unicorn scissors anywhere !!!! im hunting high and low and can't find them. I panic, call the shop just incase id dropped them there, checked the car again, and they are know where to be found. Well instead of telling Mr PINK ive lost me very expensive gold plated scissors i decide to run out quick to the pound shop and grab the first thing i find just to get the work done for the day.

    well fast forward 2 months ( still not found the Dimond encrusted scissors) ive noticed im still using me bargain scissors and can't believe they are still going strong. !!

    that night the kids asked to get the craft box out and make cards to friends, so out comes the draw and what do i find ....... my £30+ scissors covered in glue and glitter and feathers stuck to the bottom of the kids craft draw !!! i had to second glance in disbelief !

    so in a calm ( well as calm as i could be ) voice i ask the kids where they found mummies scissors ?

    and got a reply of " Daddy was cutting stuff in the kitchen and we asked to borrow them "

    so i asked Mr Pink ... " where did you find them scissors?"

    his reply " i found them on the kitchen side i thought you brought some new ones for the kitchen, they are really nice arnt they! but the kids have got them all sticky, maybe we should get some more just for the kitchen ?

    I didnt have the heart to tell him they were my expensive ones ....

    My reply " ok hun ill see if i can remember where i got them from"

    i then go to the bow room grab the other pair id got from the pound shop and gave them to him. And months on they are still going strong and my glitter covered blunt expensive scissors have now gone to their new home ... the bin.

    So the moral of the story is you dont have to buy cheep you dont have to buy expensive you just need to find out what works for you.

    Custom made, Hand Made and made with love mean one thing .....

    Someone cares , someone has taken time to put their heat and soul into making an amazing item for you, it has taken time, energy and most of all love, Just for you.
