I was embarrassed and shocked when reading another friends blog and the sidebar showed my last post as 4 weeks ago!!!
It's been busy, busy, busy here.
This sounds feeble but it's true.
Life has taken over.
I own a massive apology to a fantastic person who recently came through for me.
Here is a very belated THANK YOU...
Let me start at the beginning of my story.
One of my essentials tools is a paper piercer.
The one i have is VERY uncomfortable to hold, it actually hurts my hand.
To overcome this i purchased a bradawl BUT the point was too thick.
This meant i was back to using my painful paper piercer.
Whilst pondering how to combine the 2, i kept seeing these lovely wooden wine stoppers in my FB newsfeed:
They are the perfect shape.
So i decided to approach this seller with a strange request, the worse he could do was say no (well, and don't bother me with your wierd ideas again!!).
So the message: "Can you make me a paper piercer with this shaped handle?" was sent.
Suprisingly he did not say no but took me seriously.
The result was perfect and alot better than the idea i had in my head.
A lovely, wooden, palm sized, shaped, handle:
A grip on the tool:
A nib that unscrews ... which is perfect!
Thank you so so so much.
It is perfect.
So i cannot recommend this shop enough.
