May 23 - a very special day indeed!

Well, no project for today because it is a very special day in our house!  Today is my wonderful husbands birthday!  Yay!  I have to get my butt in the craft room and make him a card and then dinner with the kids tonite at Chevy's tex mex!

This is my wonderful husband Allen. He is very supportive, loving, caring and an awesome dad to our 3 goofball adult children.  He is truly my best friend and soul mate.

Last nite we met up with my childhood bestie Anna and her hubby Mike for Steamed Crabs.  Anna & Mike live in Hawaii and come 'home' once a year or so and we always do crabs.
This is a Maryland thang and lots of people just don't understand. It takes a LONG time to eat steamed crabs so normally it's a social thing. We used to have Crab Feasts in our back yards growing up, the dad's would go 'crabbin' in the morning and bring home a bushel of crabs to season and steam with beer and Old Bay and boy are they yummo!  My fantastic hubby will occasionally pick a crab but not often and he sits there patiently each time I pick through crab.  There is no taste like it for me and Marylander's put crab on everything! Toast, crabcakes, crab fluff, and lots more (I won't do my Forest Gump Shrimp Scene using crab, you are welcome)  SO yummy!  Or as Sophia Grace says "It's SO good" in her cute lil english accent (check it out on youtube just look for sophia grace and rosie)

Ok quick story about Anna.  She and I were 7 when we met and we are now 4(mumble mumble mumble) it is a friendship that has stood the test of time and lots of moving for both of us (me military wife, she government employee who transfers often) but we always manage to see each other as often as possible.  I started to look for a pic of us as kids but it became a chore looking thru my files.  I need to do some scanning for sure but here we are!  They head back to Hawaii the first of June and then are moving to Australia on June 15th. Oh how I will miss her :(

I am SO lucky to maintain my friendships.  I am still friends to this day with my middle school, high school, college and co-workers that I have bonded with.  Not acquaintances mind you, but people that are very important to me and always will be. So this is to you Anna, Debbie, Annette, Karen, Laura, Shannon & Ronnie. We may go years without seeing each other but we stay in touch and will always remain a part of one another lives cause we are FF's  (Forever Friends) I love each and every one of you so very much!

ok I'm pretty sure if you are still reading this, I bet you are sick in bed and have no choice.  I'm sorry for the ramblin on but today is a special day indeed and i just wanted to share it with YOU KRAZIES!

Hugs and Chirps!

Hi everyone!

It's been almost 2 years since I posted... YIKES! It's been a little hectic on my end but I have been playing lately and hope tohave more posts.

I'm writing mainly because I noticed that the graphics on my blog has disappeared and I'm looking into why that has happened. I'm also looking into migrating to WordPress.

I've been making a lot of t-shirts lately and will post about them once everything is settled. For those of you that area actually still around - I appreciate it! I hope to bring a fresh new beginning to Kricut Krazy and become super active once again. I've missed you all dearly!

Hugs and Happiness!

Scoring with the Cricut Explore!

So, one of the cool new things is the ability to score and cut at the same time.  I'm finding myself needing the score ability quite frequently.  You should see me trying to hand score something - I'm never 100% accurate.... like ever.  So here is the handy dandy score tool by Cricut.

 So Yesterday I needed to make about 50 treat bags for a staff party at work on Halloween.  The first couple of bags I scored by hand. Oh... bad idea. They were crooked.  So I'm eyeballing the score tool holder thingy.  I had ordered one via amazon but it wouldn't be in until the next day, Me? Wait? NAH!  So I'm looking around my tool drawer and I find this embosser I bought many moons ago to use with Brass Stencils.  I put it in and shut the clamp thingy and away we go!  Y'all!!!!!!!! It worked.  Holy cow it worked.  You can see the score mark below.  How exciting is that!?

Today I get home from work and my new score tool is waiting for me.  Except I left it in the package. For …
