Meet Rinaldo. Rinaldo is a Silhouette Portrait. And yes, I name inanimate objects. It’s a thing.
I bought Rinaldo on deep discount last year. I considered it a Christmas gift to myself. Well, shortly after Rinaldo joined the family, a little boy named Everett graced us with his presence. I’ve been absolutely smitten with that boy since. Poor Rinaldo got stuffed into a corner closet and forgotten for nine months. NINE MONTHS. That’s crafting tool abuse! No one puts Rinaldo in the corner (closet)!
I need to rectify this situation ASAP! But I have something to admit to you. I’m terrified of Rinaldo. There, I said it. What’s wrong with me?!?! This happened with my sewing machine also. I think the biggest problem I have with my Silhouette Portrait is that I don’t know where to start. Do I make a stencil? A card? Some other mind blowing project? So lost. So confused. So irrational.
It’s almost like an awkward blind date. You know very little about the guy and you desperately want to hit things off, but guy may be a total dud. Rinaldo, please don’t be a dud. Be good to me. Make me feel like an awesome crafter. Please?
Anyone else have fears of diving into something new? Maybe I just have a fear of gadgets? Maybe I’m just nuts…
