My matte cutter is quite possibly the best purchase I've ever made. Seriously. I use it all the time. And it saves hundreds.
I've been cutting photo mattes all day today. Working on building a gallery wall above the couch in living room. This will include the print you see in this photo (stolen from my nic-nac shelves), those lovely needlepoint states, a few miscellaneous photographs (the ones with bright, happy colors), and Our family motto.
****Just last night Jeff quoted our motto in response to my food storage woes. That's all I needed to put things into perspective.
I'm also going to recover all my pillows in red fabrics.
