New Mat Cutter

I want to officially thank my family, whose support made possible this new mat cutter.  I don't spend a lot of money on my materials.  I guess I feel I need to earn it...Anyway, I've wanted a quality mat cutter for years.  My family provides gift certificates,  which I used for this.


  1. Aw, that makes it even more special! You'll find so many uses for that mat cutter!

  2. Thanks Katherine, I tried using the hand held one and was never able to make a straight cut. I blame my left-handedness on that. It's the little things that you appreciate. I would buy the pre-cut mats and size my paintings accordingly. Only problem there is when you have a reference photo, the composition doesn't fit the dimensions of the mat size. So, yeah, I love it.

  3. congratulations...! This is going to make your work really sing...!
