Day 203 : cookie, cutter


Sandy: My brother advised me to delete the Cookies in my browser to see if that solves yesterday’s problem.

In the meantime, I was preparing a dummy (mock up of my invitation design) for a client and used a mat cutter to trim the paper to the desired size. I have an old school mat cutter, the kind of paper cutter used when I was in school (grade school). The kind that could cut off one’s finger or arm if the blade, the length of an arm, came down accidentally. To cut, the left hand holds the paper still while the right hand brings the cutting arm down. Since the arm doesn’t stay all the way up on it’s own, I rest the handle on my right shoulder while realigning the paper for each new cut so the cutting arm doesn’t lower onto my extremities. I would love to get the newer, more precise, safer mat cutters but can’t justify the expense nor wish my old school cutter on anyone else. The newer cutters have a gliding blade and can be used with the left or right hand.

Sandy’s year long journey – going from being a right-hander to left-hander, and Kelly’s parallel trip as a left-hander doing things as a right-hander.
