My Birthday Weekend Give-Away!!

Good Morning Everyone!

Well, my birthday is right around the corner...Like Monday!  Good Grief!  This is going to be a special one as I join the Mid-Century Club this year.  I never ever thought that I would actually be 50!  I thought I would just stop at 49 and that's how it worked...It seemed to me to be so far off, but it's here and I want to celebrate it by giving away something that I love and use all the time...

Here are the details:

Here's what I'm giving away...

My favorite tool to cut paper or chipboard...The Rotatrim 15-inch Cutter.  A $250.00 Value!  It truly cuts Heavy Weight chipboard like Butter!  Love this tool!

Rotatrim RC RCM15 15-Inch Cut Rotatrim Professional-15 Cutter

  • Increased cut capacity, designed for every day continuous use
  • Flexible two-way cut
  • Finest quality Sheffield Steel self-sharpening precision blades

  • Metal end frames and head
  • Chrome Twin Steel Guide Rails - provides smooth operation and heavy duty use.

Who can enter?

ANYONE! However, due to the weight of this trimmer,  I will only be sending this Domestically, meaning to the United States Only!  If you are an international winner, An Amazon Gift Card will be either sent or emailed to you in the amount of $250.00 American US Dollars.

How to enter?

Send an email to and tell me (1) What you would like to see me make for 2016 and (2) If you have made a project that I have designed,  I would love for you to post it to Facebook and tag me Jim R. Hankins...

See, that's simple right...Please note, you must email your idea to the email address...  Please do not leave your suggestions in the comments section below, either of my personal emails or on Facebook as they will not be counted.  The only way this will be accepted is through  The emails will be counted and sent to a random number generator and a winner will be selected.

When can you begin to enter and when will it end?...

It starts NOW and runs through my SPECIAL Birthday November 30, 2015 by 12:00 Midnight Central Standard Time...
