WOYWW- what isn't?? {Shhhhh}

I am so excited about what's on my desk...but I have to act like I'm not because I tried to scupper Mark's plans to get it on more than one occasion.... much to his disgust...but now that it's here I quite like it...but I haven;t actually told Mark that yet.....and when I said to Mark that's my WOYWW post his face lit up and he said 'WHAT???' and I think he was not only quite chuffed that i actually like the little thing, but really surprised and pleased that he won me over. He's quietly grinning over there while pressing rubber....shhhh don;t tell him....You don't know what I'm on about do you???

Nope it's not all the paperwork, after 2 days of spreadsheets I am ready to leave all that Essex Lynne to get her teeth stuck into, totally her bag.
No, it's a new toy at PA world HQ. Mark does love his gizmos and gadgets, and we now have a paper tape machine, one wot licks the tape for you. See, I know what you're thinking...exactly what I said.......why do you need that when you can use the regular packing tape....that's exactly what i said...for ages....anyway, now it's here I can honestly say it's really cool. Not only is the tape stronger but you dial up how much you want, do a cha ching action with the arm lever (like you would on a casino pokey machine thingy...hence the cha ching sound effect), and it literally licks, spits and then cuts the piece of tape!! How cool is that!!
No noise, no tape getting stuck to the rest of the tape, no super strength required to man-handle the tape off the rest of the roll, just smooth quiet, pre licked cha ching.

Should I be worried that I find something like this quite cool???

Oops...almost forgot...To cover up my surreptitious photo-taking-activity of the tape thing, I had to also take one of Mark's desk......he has 2 new stamps that he is putting into packs for a Craft Stamper subs offer at the Artisan show...so if you are thinking of subscribing at the show you will get this as a free gift when you subscribe. They are both new, and the only way to get them is on the Traplet Subs stand at the show. I think they also have other shows they will have them at but not sure exactly when and where.

Don't forget to swing by Julia's and get your weekly snoopy-treats. If you have made it thru to me after the 3000 other names on the list, then well done!
Catch you next week!

Love the new stamps too! When will they be on general release please? Loving your new gizmo should save £'s on packing costs, all good:-)

Those stamps look fab. Not sure about the new gadget but having had enough experience of regular packing tape anything that makes the job easier must be good

Yvonne said...

Piddawinkle said...

hmmmh a tape cutting machine, assume you have to see it to love it, you could always use it to dispense enought tape to wrap the cabin up, send it to me and Ill tidy it for you, LOL :)

I'm so impressed that Suze comments on your blog-could you get any cooler? I love office machine type stuff (sad but true) and still remember fondly the addressograph machine we had in an office I worked in.It had metal pates which dropped into place (yes ca-ching)and printed the labels. All now totally redundant now we can all do it on our home computers. Hugs BettyXXX

I used to work in a factory that also had a warehouse and shipping area. You should have asked me. This is one very useful tool for the very reason you mentioned. And because the tape is paper, it doesn't stick to itself at the most inopportune times, either. A very smart investment. I believe it will pay for itself in time, providing you factor in frustration.

I was here earlier, and tried to leave you a comment. I keep getting a 503 error. Not sure what's wrong with blogger, but it's making it hard to get through the 3000 previous bloggers this week!

CRAFTY WOMBLE said...

ooooooh - I like most gadgets but levers are definately good :) Of course those of us that are already subscribed to the craft stamper are now buggered, sigh.........

Morti said...

Nice one Leandra - welcome to WOYWW!!!! Really wish I was coming to Artisan now!

butlersabroad said...

Hey, whatever floats your boat! Wish we could get Craft Stamper in the US, I picked one up in England in May and love it. You can subscribe but it costs a packet and you don't get the free gifts, lol!

Hugs

craftimamma said...

Hmmm, definitely a gizmo you could grow to love.

Like the other desk better though or at least what's on it.

hugs
