Sullivans Edge Ruler Blog Hop

IMG_9815

Today I’m part of the Sullivans Edge Ruler Blog Hop. The rulers have a nifty cutting edge that sharpen the rotary blade each time you cut…which I need…because rotary blades are expensive and I’ve been known to keep mine a long time. I have the 6.5" x 24" ruler and the 6.5" square ruler… I mainly use that big one up there.

As part of this blog hop I’m supposed to share a recipe with you…and since I made cookies yesterday for my UPS man so he likes me again…I’m sharing my plain old but love Snickerdoodle recipe:

We make this recipe weekly. My kids roll the balls in the cinnamon/sugar…which means there is cinnamon/sugar all over my floor…always. Which is why the bottoms of my slippers are sticky…always.

For more ruler info, giveaways, and better recipe’s than mine…visit the rest of the blog hoppers this week:

You can find the ruler’s at Joann’s online (click on the photos in that link to go to Joann’s), or at many quilt shops.

I definitely need one of those rulers! I hang on to my rotary blades WAY too long. I think I need cookies now too!

jshipp said...

MMM, yummy cookies. Could make them with the grandkids. And I love the idea of these rulers. What a good idea!

Cookies and rotary cutting with a sharpening side besides!

Kathy said...

Great ruler and recipe!!!

Rachel said...

Mmmm...those cookies look good!

The ruler looks pretty cool too ;)

sewsilly said...

I need something like this to Keep Me Sharp! Very awesome rulers. I could cut my cookies in half so they would dunk in the cup of milk! haha

judy said...

Love the cookies, I'm on a diet so the best I could do is drool over the pictures. If the rulers live up to the hype I could afford to buy more fabric, instead of blades!

Jenny said...

I have rulers in these sizes already, but ones that sharpen your blade as you cut?? Genius!

hennies.pennies said...

My mom's favorite cookie is the Snickerdoodle! I haven't made them in years but this posts makes me want to make a batch and ship her off a little fall surprise!! Be blessed...

bellashea said...

The cookies look wonderful ! I would like to try one of those rulers as like everyone else I hate to change blades. Thanks for the giveaway !!!!

Sheri said...

Thanks for the recipie will be making them this weekend for grandkids:) I also make cookie dough freeze it in balls and deliver to grandkids so they can bake them when they want them.

charlotte said...

cool. I didn't know there was such a thing. I too use my blades forever.

Kathleen said...

I love Snickerdoodles..I am going to have to try your recipe..I really like this ruler..the printing on it is really clear and looks like it would be easy to read..I have a few where the colors are not as vivid..thanks for the giveaway...

Cecilia said...

Your cookies sound delicious. I'm sure your UPS man will definitely like you now. Thanks for the giveaway. I would love to try these rulers.

Thanks January

lovetostitch said...

Love Snickerdoodles and love my Sullivan ruler - could sure use another!!

January said...

I forgot to leave my email if you need it. Thanks again JanuaryT Jf-turner@hotmail.com

justind said...

I'm not much of a baker, but those cookies are making my mouth water. My blade doesn't get changed until it leaves so many little attached threads that I spend more time clipping the threads than cutting the strips. Self sharpening would do the trick. Anne

Diane said...

I want to win - I would love the yardstick ruler for trimming after I quilt! Pick me please!!

Shirley in Canada said...

Totally amazing concept in rulers! Great recipe too!

Jenniffier said...

Mom C said...

Snickerdoodles are a hit here too. They seem to surprise people, I think because everyone expects chocolate chip. My DIL was so surprised the other day when I didn't have a ruler longer than 18". Guess I'd better get with the program. Thanks.

Nancy said...

The rulers sound like a handy gadget! I hate to change blades and have been known to cut with a dull spot for quite some time. Gotta try the Snickerdoodles! Haven't made them for a long time, but brings back memories of when my kids were little; now they all have kids of their own and have little hands helping them make cookies :-)

Nicoline said...

I love your BLOG, love cookies and cannot wait to try them! Thanks for the opportunity to win a ruler!
Love from Holland!
Nicoline

Truffle queen said...

I was surprised to see that you can use an Olfa blade with the Edge ruler!! Yes! I thought you had to use the "edge" blade! Cookies look yummy!! Thanks for the opportunity!

Love Vintage Craft said...

Those cookies look delicious - will be giving them a chance. Would love to be win one of those super-duper rulers as well since I use an actual ruler opposed to a quilting one, so cutting takes me ages! Enjoying your blog at the mo!

I've never, ever heard of those rulers. But I'd love to try them out, they sound fantastic!

Hitch and Thread said...

Ruler sounds like a great idea. I am always surprised by how much difference a new blade makes. I keep mine way too long!

Can you please tell me how many grams are in a stick of butter and if it is salted, or unsalted? Thanks.

Jude said...

Wow, I had no idea there was such a thing! Would love one!

Linda said...

Good idea to have a ruler that sharpens your blade. Hate having to buy new blades, would rather buy fabric!

The Fabric Peddler said...

Pick me, pick me. Snickerdooles is my "bestest" cooker ever. I would really like to try this ruler.

dwright33055 said...

I didn't see a question, but I love snickerdoodles, I have always wanted one of these rulers hope I win one, thanks ps I love the pillow with the red flower.

Helen L said...

The cookies look too yummy (I have to try them!), the fabric is sooo pretty, and the rulers: well, you aren't the only one to make their blades go forever!! I can't remember when I last changed my 50mm blade (a couple of years maybe?!!) My smaller blade got changed about a year ago, so you can see that one of those rulers and my rotary cutter would be a match made in heaven :-D

Fran said...

That's a great recipe, thanks for sharing. I love the sound of these rulers, thanks for the review.

b78ayers said...

I live and die by my rulers - would love to use this one! Many thanks for the chance.

Abbybeth said...

Trisha said...

Genius!

JulieD said...

Mmmm those look delicious. And that ruler is GENIUS! I definitely need that.

klee1 said...

OK...I'm getting one of those rulers. I was just about to order a rotary blade sharpener. Now I can get the ruler and the sharpener all in one. Thanks so much for sharing this with us.

Stitches said...

Love the concept of the ruler sharpening my rotary blade, how cool is that??

Gale Yawn said...

I'd love to try these rulers. Heck, I'd love to bake cookies for my UPS man but he is very good at leaving my package, ringing the doorbell and running away before I can get to the door. One of these days I'm going to catch him.

Liz said...

A ruler that sharpens? GREAT idea. Thanks for the cookie recipe! :)

Carla said...

Wow what a nifty ruler. I would love win one. Thanks for the recipe too.

Barb said...

Thanks for all the great information and recipe! I would love to win a ruler! Thanks!

donna said...

Love the cookie picture. It makes me think about duplicating them. I wonder if my printer should be involved or if I should go in the kitchen. Do the rulers work? I hope so.

Becky said...

The ruler definitely interests me. Will it work with any type of rotary cutter and blade?

Susan Somsen said...

We all need an " edge" in this economy.

That looks like a great recipe that I will have to make for my husban. I'm anxious to try this ruler because I, too use my blades far too long.

Deb said...

Snickerdoodles are the first cookies I made in 9th grade home ec. I guess that's why I've never liked them...bad memories of high school days. But I would love to make some good memories with one of those rulers!

Julie said...

vedaavava said...

Nifty! I sympathize with using your blades longer than you probably should - I'm all about getting as much use out of something as possible, so this ruler sounds very cool! Can't wait to try the snicker doodles recipe! Haven't made those before, but these look delish. Thanks for sharing!

poppyinpink said...

What a great idea, it would come to a good home and could take care of all my blades, I'd love it.

those cookies look yummy! My nine year old loves to bake. I'll have her make some.

bethanndodd said...

I really need to make my UPS man some cookies too! Just got another package today (sadly, it wasn't fabric but, happily, I get to cross 1 Christmas gift off the list...whoo hoo!!!)

Those rulers look epic (that's the new word in our house lately). Thanks for the chance!

Do the rulers really work? That would be awesome and I would really need on. Cookies look yummy too. I need to replace my 6x24 inch ruler. I'll have to look into these.

Jill said...

These rulers sound fantastic - as does your recipe. I'll have to check them both out - thanks for sharing!

Becca said...

Cool ruler! This would really come in handy because I cut lots of fabric.

Heather A said...

A ruler that sharpens, too? What's not to love?!!!

Zosha said...

What a great idea. Blades are expensive and I make mine last as long as possible but all it takes is one pin or other bump and it's done. Would love to use one of these.

Kristin said...

Thanks for the chance to win. I love snicker too!
