I am on a scrapbooking high right now. The reason for my buzz is none other than a little pink iron made by a goddess named Heidi.
I have owned this iron for a long time. I think I got it at Christmas-time last year, if not before. I bought it specifically for ironing ribbons. My real iron is upstairs and heaven forbid I walk the stairs and get some exercise! Not when I can use a tiny pink iron right on my desk.
So tonight I was just finishing up a 6x6 album about Caroline's birthday party in June. I wanted to add ribbons to the spiral binding but some of them were too wrinkled to use. "A-ha! I have a Heidi iron I've never used!", I said in excitement to myself.
I plugged it in and grabbed a washcloth from the pile of laundry on my counter (who wants to do laundry when you can scrap, right?).
It took a while to heat up but WOWSA! when it got hot, it worked amazingly well! I laid each little ribbon strip on my washcloth and instantly, it was wrinkle-free.
My husband walked by and I said, "Careful the iron's hot." He looked around for the iron. I pointed and said, "This is the iron. It's tiny and PINK! Isn't it cute????!!??"
He looked at me like someone who might need therapy.
Oh well. No one can bring me down. I'm in love.
With an iron.
Thank you Heidi.
