New Season New Banner

Over the weekend I bought a little machine that cuts out the cutest images. It is called the CRICUT. I saw it on an infomercial over the summer. It was half off over at Michael's so I decided it was time to buy. Of course I had buyer's remorse when I got home. It is not cheap.

But once I opened it and my daughter figured out how to use it, I was hooked. We spent most of Sunday afternoon cutting out all types of images.

The little reindeer is so adorable. The snowflakes are, well snowflakes. Who doesn't like a little snowflake now and then? I like paper snowflakes over the frozen kind that accumulate in the yard. We will get a snow storm soon enough.

How about this little piece of greenery? It can also cut out letters faster than I can type the word letters. I see a lot of banners in my future!

I love that!!! I love the reindeer..i can see how that would be so fun!

Hello, I'm Dawn from Wisconsin. I've lived here all my life also--and while I dont love it--I wont leave because my children and grandchildren are here.

I'm currently working on a finding a good gingerbread dough so i can make a large gingerbread man to decorate and place in my kitchen window. I have one that I'm trying right now--he's cooling off in the oven...the house smells wonderful--BUT, he's not edible!

Please, come visit my blog and and if your a praying woman--pray my gingerbread dough works! This is my 2nd attempt.

OMGoodness!!! What a contraption that is... to do all those cutouts, they are so fine. The reindeer is my favorite! Love the JOY banner... That is my WORD, in the mornings as my feet hit the floor the words out of my mouth are, "Don't let anyone or anything steal my JOY today"... Somethymes it is so easily stolen.
