    Oh my, wow! What a fantastic prize, it’s difficult to string a sentence together because I’m thinking what I can do with it all! The cutter would replace the one I lent and miss and I too have Ikea scissors that were made with a nick in them! My pinking shears have seen better days and my snippers take 2 hands to work, so they’re at the bottom of a box! These are great scissors, I’ve used them at school. They would all hang up very nicely in my new craft cupboard all ready for me to use.

    You don’t know how bad I need this prize! I have lost many pairs of scissors thanks to my hubbie and boys! (cutting wires, sticky gluey things and probably much, much worse )

    Such a great give-away! I could use some good scissors. At the moment still using some Ikea scissors I bought because they were cheap and as a beginner didn’t know which ones are good ones.

    what? No specific question to answer? I’m on my own? :) Personally, I think you can never have enough scissors/cutting implements. I have some in each room, and I STILL keep looking for them. Just bought my 4 y/o his first pair of safety scissors. He spent the day after Christmas cutting up the boxes from his toys. lol. It was amusing, him trying to take on the cardboard with those little scissors!
