Recently I went to my very first scrap crop at the very lovely Kim Jeffress' place. It was so nice to be able to sit and scrap. all. day!! LOL! Kim was the most wonderful hostess and not only did I get to catch up with her, but Gail as well! Yay!! What a day.
But while I was there... I was inspired. Not only by these amazingly talented ladies but also by the equipment they used. Namely... one old fashioned writing devise. The humble typewriter!! LOL!
So... I went searching on ebay. My birthday was coming up and I had decided that I needed one too. ha ha... (This is what I needed to be in the "in" crowd right?) And guess what. I'm sure it was meant to be. Listed on ebay was this Adler typewriter. No bids. $20. Good condition. AND... It was local!! I couldn't believe it.
My kids look at it with a mixture of amusement and curiosity. "How does it work, Mum?" "Where's the mouse?" "Do you need to get a monitor to go with it?" Bwhahahahaha! Sadly I didn't make those questions up. *sigh*
