My Cricut Is Here!

My very own Cricut machine arrived Thursday, but because I was so busy with other things I didn't even get to open it until Friday. And once I opened it, the kids were more excited than I was. Mackenzie was the first person to cut anything! Figures!

And here is what she made. Very creative, except Dad wasn't happy with the tape.

Even Bob got into the action.

But I am glad that they are interested in using it, just as long as they don't get better than I am. You know how kids master technology faster than their parents!

Until now, I have done all my Cricut classes at stores, but I just booked my first at-home class with a woman in Council Bluffs.


After years of teaching others to use the Cricut machine without actually owning my own, I have finally purchased a Cricut Expression on Ebay. It is a lot of money, but I will have so much fun doing stuff with it!
I will post pictures when it arrives!
