Guitar Picks

OK I had totally intended to wait until tomorrow when I had this in my hot little hands but I can't wait cause it is so super cool ...

So yes the pennies are awesome ... but we need more SWAPS to take with us ... I mean you really can't have too many can you?? At one point I had looked ta custom guitar picks ... you know Rock the Mall ... guitar pick ... they totally go together if you ask me ... but that didn't pan out ... we had spent our budget already ...

So the other night I started searching for bulk guitar picks with the intention of putting them in the little baggies with a Rock The Mall note ... they all seemed to be more expensive than I wanted to invest since we weren't really going to use them to play ...

While searching I came across this blog post from Craft Test Dummies ...

Watch her video ... it is awesome ...



Can you believe it ... a punch to make REAL guitar picks ... how cool is that ... and since my husband has 6 guitars and counting I knew I could get him on board with getting this and helping me make guitar picks because after Rock The Mall he will use it to make his own cool picks ... I am sure I will come up with all sorts of things to use it for ...

So I started searching for how I could get one as fast as possible - seeing as we are quickly approaching Rock The Mall ... they are sold at Urban Outfitters but unfortunately the one in Georgetown is sold out (of course cause it is so cool) ... lots of different sites carry them but I decided to go to PickPunch.com ... seek out the guy who invented it and sells it ...

Well Von is amazing ... first of all he answers email in the middle of the night like me ... gotta love that in someone ... especially when you are working to get something before the weekend ... and he rocked everything and will be getting it to me by tomorrow ... TOMORROW people which means we have the weekend to work on them ...

So then I started wondering how I could get lots of plastic cards to punch ... and decided to stop by my favorite Starbucks this morning ... because I'll use any excuse to get a coffee ... well they throw away gift cards that are phased out or are holiday ones after the holidays and guess what ... they are handing them over to me ... now rather than make more trash we are recycling them into something AWESOME ...

So as soon as I get it tomorrow I'll post all about it ... so so so excited ... and can not thank Von enough for being so amazingly awesome ... if you are even thinking of getting one of these PLEASE go to PickPunch.com ... and let Von know how awesome he is!!!
