A Cricut Swarm Event

On Saturday, February 11, 2012, a small group of us Cricuteers held a swarm at the local library in my hometown(Aiken, SC). Each of us had a table dedicated to displaying our wares( crafty projects). We shared ideas and laughs as we worked on projects using our beloved Cricuts. The swarm lasted all day until 5:30 and then we ate a meal together as a local restaurant where we continued to share thoughts, opinions and ideas. We talked about the competing cutting system, the Silhouette Cameo( ahhhh) (looks good). However, each of us is pleased with the cutter of choice(for right now). Can't wait to see what Provocraft has up their sleeves for the cricut. Enjoy some pics from the swarm:

31-Days Journal Challenge

Marion Smith(A Piece of hosted a 31-day journal challenge for the month of January. The details of the challenge are : to document with photos and journaling each day of January and compile it in a journal. While Marion did offer digital files that you could include in your journal, there was leeway also for you to create your own pages. So I used my Cricut Imagine to replicate some of her pages. I did purchase one of her digital files, however. What a journey that was. I have thoroughly enjoyed compiling photos and journaling for this project. What a great idea. I haven't decided if I am going to continue next month or not. We'll see.
