New Blog Template & Cricut Practice

Well?  What do ya' think?  I've been toying around with new designs and just finally decided to click it and do it!  Little did I know that Blogger had changed the game plan on me, but I quickly figured it out and I think once I get past the initial shock of the change I'll be back up to blogging speed!

If you are interested in find a new template for your own blog, please visit this wonderful site... Lots of cute designs and easy to follow instructions.

So... would you like to know what I've been doing with myself for the past year of so?  Well... not a whole lot of anything new, that's for sure!  Just working full time and chasing kiddos around - can you say ---'BORING'?  :)

However..... I have recently rediscovered my love of the Cricut and I've finally gotten over my fear of VINYL!  I really don't know why I procrastinated so much with using vinyl?  It's really quite simple and I love the finished look of my projects.  Now if I could just figure out how to use that frazzling vinyl transfer tape!  UGH!!  I have watched those stinking YouTube videos over and over and they look so easy, but when I get ready to actually use the transfer tape I have total brain blockage!  I feel so stupid!!  I really have to get this conquered or I'm going to start to develop a complex (among the many other complexes I have)! 
My first attempt at using cutting vinyl with Cricut

I realize these two canisters don't look like much, but for some crazy reason I just felt completely overwhelmed at the thought of trying my hand at these.  They were so easy and I now I feel so silly!

Of course my next stop was PINTEREST!!   I immediately began pinning anything and everything that was remotely related to or could be done using my Cricut!  Now I realize that I may never get around to completing half of the pins I have on my boards, but still ---- those ideas are rolling around in my already overwhelmed brain.  Look out...I've got rolls of vinyl, a few new cartridges, and a Cricut Expression that has been collecting dust for over 2 years!  I'm prepped and ready!
