2 Birthday Crafty Product Reviews

Hey there friends and fellow crafters... first of all Happy Easter...
Now I don't usually do product reviews, but I wanted to say, I am IN LOVE with the Wendy Vecchi "Make Art Station". 
Wendy Vecchi Make Art Stay-Tion All-in-One Magnetic Surface
I am a LAZY crafter, well I have swelling issues in my legs, and sometimes my neck hurts, so when I am coloring I tend to get comfortable and this product is perfect... the magnetic ruler holds my paper to the board and I can just stick it on my lap and color away in comfort.
When you want to stencil, the magnets will hold your stencil for you, no more having to use washi tape.
The magnetic ruler and the grid lines will help with layering your panels on your cards... I just can't say enough how much I am happy for this product.

*Photos are unedited, I wanted to give the real view, my stencil did not move, my blending worked as desired and now I have a project to finish with this panel.
Anyway, this new product is awesome, for sure a happy purchase for me.
9 more days left in my birthday month, wonder how many more fun things I can find.

I also finally bought the Vagabond 2 Die Cut Machine, OMG I am so mad I didn't ever get this before, die cutting is now a breeze, just pushing the button it pulls the sandwich through, hit reverse and hit again and it brings it back, OR, I could easily grab it from around the back instead... again LAZY. I sat here Friday and cut so many things for my upcoming cards and was just so happy. Some may wonder why I went with Vagabond over the Gemini... well, I have all the accessories (magnetic platform) extra plates, extended plates blah blah blah for the Big Shot already, which is what the Vagabond uses. I've had my Big Shot since mid 2015 so I didn't have to learn a new machine and new sandwiches and such.Sizzix Tim Holtz Vagabond 2 Electric Embossing Extended Platform and Java Standard Pads Die Cutting Machine, 6 In (15.24 Cm) Opening,
Anyway, signing off, I have a few cards to make to finish out the month and start on May, and with these 2 new products in my arsenal at least it will make it a little easier on me. It was always so much easier just to use my guilatine trimmer to cut the paper instead of using my dies to cut perfect panels, well not anymore... I'm kicking it up a notch starting today!!!
