Then I spent a long time trying to figure out a way I could make nice eyes here. Fail. I could get a 1/2" or 3/8" die and manually slam it one by one but it's an ugly thought. They make machines that you roll stuff through a press under a die cut and if I could find one cut that did a 'page' of circles at a time, that would do just what I need but, again the idea of setting it all up and then cutting one at a time for 120 times every month... nope.
At least I have Etsy.
Apropos of nothing, I realized today that I am no longer embarrassed to tell people I'm retired. For the first year and a half, it always felt horrible to say. Now, I'm totally cool with it. I don't think I have many hangups but the ones I do have are just weird.
