Genius! I really need to get a wood burner.

That is also a great idea!

I need to get me a mat and cutter.

This sounds dang handy. I have granite countertops and it rocks crafting on it! In fact, when I make rolled roses, I actually glue the bast to my granite and go from there. It holds it really still, then I can just peel it off. Also, it is great because I don't' have to worry about where I am sitting my glue gun. Just one question though...isn't is so heavy?
I have an awesome destash waiting for you;
