Well, I finally broke down and bought a sizzix machine. I bid on a complete set of lollipop letters on ebay before I even had the machine and wouldn't you know it - I won the auction. So here's my questions 1) Is Michael's the only "chain" store that sells dies? Does Hobby Lobby? Wouldn't it be nice if wal-mart did?! 2) How do you store your dies? I know they have an "official sizzix storage system" but I've already spent too much money so I'm looking for more creative ideas (eg. cheap!). I keep coming back to the idea one of those over the door plastic shoe holder but smaller. Any ideas?
