Sad farewell to my trolley
It was a sad day yesterday. My trusty trolley broke. The handle has come apart and I can’t fix it. I have been using that trolley for every single crochet and crafting class since I started teaching three years ago. It was a paper mania scrapbooking trolley, that has long since been discontinued. It fitted all my ‘stuff’ in, had a great collapsible handle and really sturdy wheels. Gutted. I definitely got my money’s worth though – I bought it YEARS ago for £30 and it came with a free Xcut Impress die cutter.
Anyway, I thought it must be time for an upgrade so started looking around for another one. Papermania still make one, but it is in black. I don’t like black and as I have to keep my trolley in my bedroom I didn’t want that one lurking around there. Then I spotted this beauty…
And look at what’s inside!
It is an ‘Everything Mary’ rolling scrapbook tote. It looks SO PRETTY compared to my ugly old brown one. It is in my new favourite colours – grey and turquoise. It also has a lot more storage pockets so I can keep all my class spares of scissors, pens, crochet hooks, loyalty cards etc in there along with all the projects, samples and books for class. I have just ordered it. I am so excited, but it might take up to a month to come. In the meantime I have to drag around my trolley with a broken handle. Oh well, it will make me appreciate my new one even more when it comes.
