Adventures in Cricutland

I am ashamed to say I have had my Cricut for almost a year and have only done one major project with it. Before I received it last Christmas I swore it would revolutionize my life and convinced my dad to buy me the whole big Cricut Expression package on QVC. However, I soon became intimidated my the Cricut believing I could never achieve what my predecessors had. Therefore, the Cricut collected dust and sad sadly in the craft corner.

One day while hopping along in blogland I found Robyn at My Pink Stamper and started watching her videos on my lunch break. Gradually, my confidence built up and I decided to give the long lost Cricut a comeback and try and nice easy project. I know it seems simple, but I am grateful to have my Cricut passion re-ingnited and this cute little frame. I can't wait for more holidays so I can use the Cricut more and more. I am sorry to have banished you to the Craft Corner my loyal friend.

Darling! I'm proud of you for getting it out and using it. I remembered the story about getting it from last year. I had to laugh when you mentioned you hadn't taken it out.
