I hope that all of my fellow east coasters are doing well during this storm that we are experiencing. I'm currently looking out our front window at snow falling & falling, creating a winter wonderland. I could stare at it all day long. We are cozy inside, watching Mansfield Park, with plans for french onion soup for dinner.
My occupation at the moment is playing with my new toy -- a Cricut die cut machine! I've been thinking about purchasing one for years and just couldn't pull the trigger. But, I saw a wonderful deal at Joanns and found out that the new Cricut has so much more to offer than any of the older models. So, I took the plunge!
The deal is no longer available at Joanns, but I see that I similar deal is available at Walmart at the moment.
I have had so much fun with it in the few short days that have passed since it arrived on our doorstep. Scrapbook pages, adorable bookmarks, and more.
One of the bookmarks that I made is pictured in the inspiration photo above. I love the silhouettes being used on their own as well.
I have found so much inspiration out there.
Look at these cutie patootie personalized buckets for Easter from The Celebration Shoppe. This would be adorable for Halloween or Christmas as well.
This calendar by Damask Love is just so stunning and inspirational.
I love these gift boxes, particularly the candy boxes by SVG Cuts.
And, monograms! The possibilities are endless! I love both of these examples above from Shes Kinda Crafty.
I'm also thinking about all of the etched glass projects that I can make (this pitcher from The Polar Bear Nook on Etsy). Glasses, Christmas ornaments and more.
OK, I've spent all day either playing with the Cricut or writing about it! I should probably do something else...:)
