<Sigh....>What a long couple of days it has been.  I have been feeling icky from a bad headache and a touch of the tummy bug.  But I'm not going to let that detour me!  I have until midnight on the 15th to get entries in for the challenges I want to try my hand in.

I want to enter "On the Edge" (a project with a pronounced edging treatment )Whimsical Design contest at , Challenge me Monday's (masculine them) at , and the Sparkle and Ribbon themed challenge at .  None of them really over lap so I'll really need to be busy busy tomorrow.  Wish me luck!!

I have my first follower!

Thank you to Stephanie for being my first follower!  Woot woot!!  I'm on my way now.

I just plain ol' don't feel good today so I am taking today to learn all about my Gypsy.   I received it for Christmas (but a week late) and have only been able to take the time to sync my cartridges and little else.  I have played on it.  I'm not an so busy that I don't make some time to play with my toys!

I also got a Cricut Expression 2 with some money I received as a gift.  It just arrived yesterday and I had fun figuring out which port is which, calibrating the screen, etc and then made a few cuts.  I love the light that's on the blade housing!  I've always wondered how that little booger worked and now I know.  My friend Jennifer is buying my original Expression and I am going to give her lessons on all the buttons, etc.  I reckon she'll get to use the cartridges I get loaded on to the Gypsy as well.

Thanks for stopping by.  My current WIP's (works in progress) are for several challenges.  I'm also going to a card making party on Saturday where we are all going to make our Christmas cards for 2012.  I hit post-Christmas clearance sales for ribbon and other things I can use for embellishments.  The hostess decided we should do this in January so we won't be struggling to get enough cards made at the last minute.  I thinks it's a marvelous idea!  Our Christmas stamps aren't yet buried, we've got left over and cheaply acquired supplies and the fellowship will be fabulous.

Welcome to my new blog!  I've been wanting to blog for a while but never sat down and did it.  Well, I finally made the time when I learned that I really need a blog in order to enter some crafting and Cricut challenges!  I do love to papercraft but I also crochet and do a bit of sewing and knitting.  So, welcome to my crafting world.  I hope I can keep at least myself entertained!!
