My new toy...

Several weeks ago, during one of Sophie's middle of the night feedings, I was watching an infomercial on t.v. for this thing called a Cricut. It really was one of the neatest things I had seen!

Well, my mother-in-law, having no idea that I wanted one, got me a Cricut for Christmas!! I couldn't believe it and was so excited to get it home and see( if and) how it worked.

Now, I know I am just a beginner, but I am having so much fun with this machine!

I used it to complete a Christmas scrapbook for Sophie's birthmom and it really gave the book that finished look!

I have also had fun just playing around and making some cards/stationary!
The creativity and ideas are endless---

Oh...if only so was my time?!?

Ohhhh, I have been wanting one of those, but have been so busy the past year that I never felt justified in adding another gadget! I had actually forgotten about it this Christmas, but maybe I can find a good deal on one this new year! Does it come with lots of fonts, etc. already programmed in or do you have to buy cartriges or something to add? I'm sure I'll be asking you tons of questions! I love to make stationery & such, as well! Your Cards & the scrapbook look FANTASTIC! Yay!
