I got an email from a woman named Kathy Russ who is in need of some help. She has had a pair of cutting scissors that she's used for years and wants to find a similar pair but she doesn't know where to find them. Here is what she said to me:

33 years ago this Christmas, a couple weeks after our marriage, my husband gave me an scherenschnitte book to cut out and a pair of scissors. The book was cut out long ago, but my scissors have finally gotten dull. I make a lot of cards with rubber stamps and love to fussy cut (a quilting term that fits, perfectly) and pop up images, probably a left over love from all those years ago. I bought some Cutter Bee's, but they are just not the same. The little cardboard holder for my scissors wore out long ago, so I can't even look on it to see who made them. Do you know where I can get another pair of these scissors?

I'm attaching a pic of the scissors. In tiny letters on side it says "Stainless Pakistan". I love these scissors, but the tips are just worn out after 33 years.

Does anyone have any information for her? I pretty much strictly use an exacto blade. What kinds of scissors do you guys use if you use scissors?

I'll be having a solo show at Blonde Grizzly. The show starts on August 20th and lasts until the next Gallery Stroll in September. My theme is the United States. I've been feeling pretty patriotic for some reason lately and this is what I've come up with. Here's a taste. I think I'm going to try to make flash cards.

State Bird: Nene
State Flower: Hibiscus

State Bird: Willow Goldfinch
State Flower: Coast Rhododendron
Virginia (for lovers)
State Bird: Cardinal
State Flower: American Dogwood
