What an exciting time!!

I have lots to tell you guys..

I have been so crazy blessed lately. I am off for Thankgiving for a total of 5 days....wooo hooo. I have been playing with a toy.....drum roll.....

A brand new Gypsy. Okay, without the long boring details...I am NOTORIOUS for wanting something and having to have it right away or the opposite and thinking there is no way that I need to spend my money on whatever it might be.

That is what happened with the Gypsy. My friend Ami and I went to a demo that Michaels had a month or so ago and since it wouldn't help us share our carts, we decided against it. I work, and Ami is a lucky stay at home sexy biker wife- that's what I call her job title. LOL!! I used to do homework at lunch everyday, but then got booted out of my spot with WiFi and started taking up "napping" under a tree in my van. Well, that is getting old and I was almost late a couple of times. So as I was wishing for WIFi, and thinking about the wedding album I was working on at home...the Gypsy popped into my head. I won't sell you on it, but you can find all kinds of info on the web out there. I just wanted to tell you what happened to me.

I got it yesterday afternoon. I LOVE IT!!!! A couple of newbie complaints...1. It doesn't come with a manual...2. Everything you want to know, you have to get off of the website or youtube. 3. I wish it had "hovering" information. Like which button was shadow versus black out. Those are my only concerns, and with only 24 hrs. under my belt I am sure it is that I haven't figured it out yet.

Here is my first "Thingy" that I made while watching ICarly on Nickalodeon, sitting on my couch with my boys.....instead of hiding out in my scrap room. Hint: If you are a ICarly fan, try to figure out your Gypsy when the show is not on! I might have caught on a lot sooner, had I stopped watching the T.V.

This is from the Destinations Cartridge which is exclusive to the HSN Gypsy bundle. I LOVE THIS CARTRIDGE!!! The Gypsy also comes loaded automatically with exclusive Gypsy Font and Gypsy Wonderings.

So I am deciding that I am totally for this now!! I uploaded my carts and now Ami can take them home with her and bring them back whenever I need them. It also allows me to swap carts with my sister in Arkansas. Provocraft states that you can only link each cartridge to one Gypsy. But you then can use that cart and that Gypsy on any Cricut machine. Since my sister and Ami are both at home most of the time, I get to be the lucky lady with a Gypsy and they can borrow my carts whenever they want. Provocraft also suggests that you don't get rid of your carts, once they are uploaded. Just incase you may ever need them. So letting my peeps borrow them, is no problem at all.

I didn't want this to be a infomercial for the Gypsy, but I figured since I had spent the last 24 hours searching for "stuff" on the Internet, someone else might like my info on it.

I will be posting more about this lovely machine...and hopefully attempting my first video soon.

Big Hugs,

P.S. I hope you all had a wonderful Thangsgiving. Once again I was spoiled by my hubby with him cleaning and doing dishes. I just made a simple turkey feast and played with the Gypsy all day...I AM A LUCKY LUCKY GIRL!!!

Back from Cali...

Hi Guys!

I am back from California. I drove with my parents out there and then flew home. I was so relieved when Friday came around of last week and couldn't wait to just hop into the car and drive. It was a pretty crazy week before I left. I had a wedding album to finish, a baby mum and a lot of homework to catch up on. I got back on Wed. night to face a full days work and my last day of Spanish class on Thursday evening. Wheeew!! Then Saturday morning a few friends and I decided to throw a little Craft Sale together. We had more "Yard Sale" type customers who seemed more interested in buying our table and chairs than the stuff actually on the tables. I wanted to share a couple more tiles that I threw together. I am sure you know which one is my favorite!!
*** Edited to add that these are just plain ceramin tiles purchased from a Home Improvement store*** Fairly inexpensive.

The first one is a tile that can be used as a reminder decoration. This tile will make a great thank you gift for a teacher. Super Simple to make!

The second one is used with my most favorite color combo and my favorite addition of BLING!!! This one will actually have a home on my desk at work and the cork squares are where a pic of each of my boys will be. The pictures do not so these tiles any justice. They are much more cute in real life!!

I posted a while back that something exciting was in the works. It really is. I'll give you 3 words that might give you all a hint....tattoos, blog candy, and digital....can you guess???

Until next time,

Big Hugs
