Change is good...

Saw some projects on the internet which fascinated me. Mini albums make out of toilet paper tissue rolls. Your first reaction is probably like mine. Yuck! After watching a few creations, I decided to try it myself. Tell me what you think! And...try it yourself.

Cricut Crazy

Mike bought me a Cricut cutting machine and I am still learning to use it. You can make cards, make wall words, use it for scrapbooking, etc. I have been looking for project ideas on the internet and found a lot. I discovered a bunch of YouTube video projects. Cool.

My first project was a phrase that I put on my suv, "REDISCOVER your library". Appropriate don't you think, since I work in a library? The next projects were Christmas gifts where I made ceramic placques with people's names on them. They display on a stand. People really liked them and I had fun doing them.

We visited our FL grandsons and they had a lot of fun with the Cricut. Nathan loves to draw and I thought it would be cool to put the words, "Art gallery" on the wall with all the pictures he has drawn. We put different sized gears on another wall. Benjamin wanted to have baseball graphics and fireworks on his. Plus, I put a motivational phrase on one of his walls. We had a ton of fun playing with my new cricut.

Stay tuned for more projects using my cricut.
