I still like to cut out. My nook is littered with beautiful papers and cut outs and I can never keep it organized to save me.
When Jennie and I were little girls we spent hours cutting out of the Sears Roebuck catalog, trying to find the perfect dress for the model just standing so. I think most of them were black and white, seldom colored paper. My grandma would walk into the room and wail, "You've got such a mess in here it looks like a cyclone struck!!!" My nook still looks like a cyclone struck. It's still fun, too. God bless you, Diane
