My First Award

 Thursday I was having a pretty crummy day. Nothing was going good and I was still in my pj's when the hubs came home from work, not to mention that NOTHING had been done around the house, and with a two year old that is dangerous! Needless to say I was not a happy camper until I checked my email and saw that I had received my very first award!! Are you kidding me?!?! WOW, Alisha at Homemaking Honey's totally made my day, Thank You!! You need to check out her site, it is awesome, she has so many great ideas, make sure you look around. You won't be sorry.

Cutting It Close...

I finally finished my Valentines wreath, with 4 days to spare! I fell in love with this wreath last year and I never got around to making it, but I was determined that this beauty would be on my door and I couldn't be any happier! 

Funny story, as I was putting this wreath together my husband says to me, honey do you realize that you have more wreaths than there are seasons? Of course I do babe, I need one for every month!! I am pretty sure he rolled his eyes :)

Sure Cuts A Lot

In a recent post I mentioned that I finally got a Cricut. I am sure the only person happier about than me was my mom, I was always using hers :) Anyway, I had wanted a Cricut for a long time but was not willing to spend the $40-60 per cartridge, I have more important things to spend my money on.

One day I heard about the Sure Cuts A Lot software and knew instantly that this was the solution to my problem. So I downloaded the trial version just to make sure it was what I wanted-that lasted one day before I knew that I had to have it, the next day I bought it and have loved it ever since!!

I love the freedom that it gives you, you can cut out any true-type font (99% of fonts are true-type) and it will work with any svg file. I can tell it exactly where to cut on my mat and easily change the size to exactly what I need. It has opened up a whole new world for me with my Cricut. If any of you are considering purchasing it, do not wait, I know that you will absolutely love it!! HERE is the link if you are looking to buy it, and I know that you really want to- just consider it an early valentines gift to yourself!!
