    I love my Westcott scissors. I was unfamiliar with them until I saw them on tv one day. I went straight to Staples and bought several. I am always having trouble with scissors. I love these. I use them for all types of projects from paper art to fabrics. My new favorite brand of scissors, for sure.

    Ooh, lots of lovely scissors. I would hide them; any other scissors in our house seem to grow legs and go wandering.

    Wonderful prize pack! A scissor sharpening tip: I hear you can sharpen scissors by cutting through aluminum foil, if you are in a pinch.

    A good pair of scissors can mean the difference between a happily completed project that you’re proud of and a crooked WIP, thrown into the “in progress” box in disgust.

    This would be a fabulous prize to win. I am a teacher of preschoolers and also summer camp. How great to have some decent scissors handy that really cut. It would be also wonderful to have scissors for every use that I could keep in a special place (hidden from husband, LOL) and have available whenever I needed them.
