I have been playing with my cricut Explore for the past few days. First I made some flowers, then I decided to delve into vinyl. Even though I did a very simple design, I found it a lot harder than I thought it would be. I guess I will start on next years gifts very early in the year. I am beginning to come out of the box so to speak. I NEVER would have tried anything like this a few years ago. Now just to find the time to watch You Tube! I just usually find myself reading a book on my I Pad instead or playing games. MUST stop the games. I really need to make some changes for the new year. My first change will be cleaning up my scrap room as much as I can with this bum leg of min. It has really put a damper on the holidays this year. I am not even suppose to be rafting as my leg is suppose to be elevated. Not so easy when you are trying to scrap. Very awkward position and uncomfortable. Now off to finish my online shopping as I finally got my new credit cards after my husband thought he lost his wallet. It was sitting on his desk the whole time. He found it after we cancelled everything! OY!
