My day with my cricut friends

I had a wonderful day at our Cricut Circle Meet Up in Cincinnati Ohio
I finally had a chance to get to know some amazing circlets and
meet some of the ProvoCraft employees.  They answered a lot of our questions
and all in all it was a wonderful day!

I also had my picture taken with Mr. Cricut you have to love days like this!!

Here's my cricut plushie that I purchased at the meet up
he had to look out the window on the long ride home!

Emily's Artwork

This morning I wanted to share with you my daughter's artwork.
The first picture she drew at the beginning of the Kindergarten.  It was
picture of herself.  The second picture is a picture of me she drew on
Mother's Day.  What an amazing difference in just 9 months!
It may just be because I am her mommy, but I think she is
a wonderful artist!  Have a wonderful Sunday morning!

My Room!!!!

 Today I wanted to show pictures of my room.  It's a room in my
basement that we cleaned out and painted to make a place for
me to go and create.  I love to go down and get a good movie
fill my cup with Diet Coke and start working!  The cabinet I use to store my
cartridges is a very old stacking bookcase that we inherited from my husband's
grandfather when he passed away.  I love my room and am happy to
share it with you!!!

My Circle Mirror

This is my Circle mirror.  I was so excited the day I became a circle member!
The day my welcome package arrived I was at Home Depot and saw this mirror.
It was cricut green!  I bought it and raced home designed the cricut circle
with the cricut head from Potpourri Basket and the circle from George. 
I welded them together with a circle in the middle and them etched
it on the mirror.  Now, a year later, we circle members could just use the
 Everday Cricut Cart to make the circle but I kind of like my mirror just the way it is!!!!

Kindergarten Recipe Book

I made this recipe book for my daughter's school Gala Auction.
I used my Imagine - Expression - Gypsy - Your Story to make it
Cartridge used were: Kate's Kitchen & Printing Press
This book was definitely a labor for love and I am glad
that during the auction I outbid the rest of the other Mom's
so I could take the book home all for myself!!!

These bookmarks were made for my Daughter's kindergarten class for her 100 book challenge
I used the Create a Critter cartridge from ProvoCraft and Alphalicious for the font.
I then laminated them so they can use them over and over.
My Emily uses her's everyday!  She loves it!
