Crafts? What are those?

Well, my dear husband had shoulder surgery today. I haven't been to sleep yet. and I am exhausted. He has been sleeping all day. He gets meds every 4 hours and every 6 hours. Goodness, I have to set alrarms to get up in the middle of the night to give him his pills. So instead of crafting, I am playing nurse.
Soon, I promise I will do a craft or two.

Rainy day here in Houston

Well, weather wasn't the greatest today. No projects done. Bummer. I did however open a bunch of my new cartridges and got all my rewards points out to register. Dang hope they have some good rewards soon, I'm getting up there.

I am still on the hunt for a new Expression. Problem being that I don't want cartridges that I already have and since I have 168 I believe was the total, I have to go with an exclusive expression. However most of them have cartridges I already have as well. I really want Pink Journey, but I just refuse to pay that much for a machine for a partial cartridge and cartridges I already own. So if you see any awesome deals here in Houston, let me know.

I have also been saving all the plastic clam shells that the cartridges come in. Gotta come up with a good recycle project for those.

Really want to play with my toys, but guess that will have to wait a couple more days.

Hope you guys all stay warm and dry.

Happy Cricuting.

Let's get this Blog up and running this year.

Life has sure been exciting lately, but I need to get this blog off the ground and running. So, here we go.

I have been ordering cartridges like crazy lately with all these great sales. I got the Disney Classics so I now can do my favorite character, Jiminy Cricket.
Goodness, I really need to count and see how many I have. I think 165 to 170 but I could be wrong. I got the cricut cake mini at Christmas. Still unopened in the box. I have been trying to get an imagine, but since the 4 they have sent me haven't worked Provo craft told me to send it to them and they'll send me one that works. Fingers crossed. I also got a YUDU Thanksgiving day. Still have yet to try a shirt. Maybe I will do it tomorrow and try a video. That's just a scary thought.

I am hosting a local SWARM here in Houston, February 19, 2011. Looks like it could be a full house. We'll see. I'm really excited about my SWARMS this year. I have some great ideas and hoping to make them even more fun for the cricuteers.

Provo craft is doing a huge event in Frisco, March 18, 19 and 20th. The Stampede. I will be going. Hoping it will be as much fun as everyone expects.
A bunch of my Houston SWARMing buddies are going. It will be fun, getting to play all day without worrying about hosting the event.

So stay tuned. We'll be getting this show off the ground starting tomorrow. If nothing else, I'll do a project and post it.
