I said it would never happen..., I was wrong.

Holy cow time sure does fly!

I'm sorry I've been MIA for almost a year!  Loads of stuff happening from a new grand baby to a new job and loads in between.

Tomorrow there is some excitement happening I wanted to share.  Y'all know I've kicked Cricut to the Curb and have been using my Cameo.  I kept my Imagine (cause you can't give those away these days) and I kept my Expression cause's the best thing that ever happened to me!    I made so many friends, traveled, spent too much money and made a little too.

I've been on the fence with trying the new Explore.  I've really been struggling with it for the last 6 months give or take.

Tomorrow my Explore and wireless adapter arrive. Thankfully I have the day off as I have to go get a procedure on my back.  I hope it's still numb enough for me to play for awhile tomorrow afternoon/evening.

I've pinned a lot, surfed a lot and watched a lot of videos. I've seen friends who swore off Cricut go back to them because of this machine and because of the new direction Customer support has taken.  Everyone I talked to feels like they matter, feels like this is truly a good thing.  So many so that I have to take the plunge and I think I'm ready.

I've played around in Design space a little the last few days and I'm lovin the 'canvas' choices - they even had my Kitchen Aid Mixer!  One of the first things I'm going to slap vinyl on YAY!

Wish me luck!  Please leave me a comment and let me know if you've gone with Explorer and what your experiences have been.

Hugs and Happiness!


  1. Congrats on getting the Explore! I am so much like you as I have kept my 2 expressions, my imagine but got frustrated with the Cricut Company and bought the Cameo....but after receiving an email from cricut about giving me all the images for the imagine for free perked my interest again. AND it was then that I learned about their new device! I knew I had to have it and requested it from hubby. My only problem is he bought it and hid it away for Christmas and he has no clue I found it and I want it NOW LOL! Somehow I have to convince him I need it now without letting on I know he already has it. Oh the games I must play now heehee. For now I am going to stalk your pinterest board. :-)

Kricut Krazy is back!

Hello everyone!

I've missed you all!  What a crazy summer it has been.  I just kept walking by my craft room and longing to sit down and do something fun.  I've dabbled in things over the summer but no real crafty fun day.  I've been cooking tons of stuff I find on pinterest (surprisingly most has been a huge hit!) I've tried my hand at washer jewelry - and failed (see photos below) but I'll keep trying.

I didn't realize my phone posted a video I took the other day until I started getting you tube comments and emails LOL So here ya go for those that haven't seen it:

Ok a coupla ya asked about the washer jewelry.  I wanted to make them for my daughters. Krystina's would have Ragan Lyn  on the large washer and 3/14/2013 on the small washer with a blue stone for March.  Amanda's would have Julianna Marie on the large washer and 7/3/2013 on the smaller one along with a red stone for July.  Sigh.  Why does everything look SO much better in my head than i…

Scrappin with my Bug Happy Birthday Blog Hop!

Hey Krazies!

My sweet friend Michelle from Scrappin with my Bug is having a birthday!  We're celebrating by gathering a bunch of fun ladies for a big blog hop that is going to run all weekend long. Lots of fun stuff to see along the way and prizes galore!  Be sure you stop at Michelles blog first to wish her a Happy Birthday! 

My Project
Happy Birthday Michelle!
 Front of the Gate fold card.  I used rub on dots for the top and bottom, 2 buttons to wrap the bakers twine around and cut the flowers from Walk in my garden.  The stamps are misc Birthday stamps and the paper is all DCWV various stacks.  I inked around the flowers with chalk ink (cats eye I think it's called)  Oh and the rub on dot borders are from Stamping Up.  I'm brand new with rubber stamps and will eventually learn how do do it correctly.
 Inside of the card.  It's your Day is from Pink Cricut - one of her stamp sets.... sorry don't remember which. Paper is from DCWV and I inked a lil here and there. 


You are going to LOVE this video. TRUST ME!

How do you store your 12x12 paper?  Do you like those Vertical folders from Cropper Hopper?  See that? 5.88.  I love them, but I needed 15 of them.  I have 5.  Well after putting my thinking cap on I came up with a way to do this for FREE.  and it takes 3 sheets of paper to decorate.  So watch the video then leave me a comment letting me know what you think.

At the end of the video is a contest for some blog candy - who wants a free cartridge?  I don't know what the cartridge is yet because my sponsor didn't tell me what they were sending - so we'll all be surprised YAAAY.

I love comments so please leave me some feedback!
