So I recently decided to start crafting again. I want to make a bunch of cards to either sell or at least to bundle and give as gifts to friends and family that still enjoy sending snail mail notes from time to time. I drug out my Cricut Personal and hooked it up to Cricut Craft Room. Every week, Cricut offers a new set of images as a free cut. They are released every Wednesday and there have been so many awesome ones that I find myself checking Craft Room often to see what the next “free cuts” will be. Every now and then, a cut will stay up for more than a week or they will stick a mystery cut in there. On this particular trip into the Craft Room program, Spring Holiday Cards was the free cut. I had so much fun making St. Patrick’s Day cards and Easter Cards. I was even able to play with one in Craft Room and turn it into a birthday/special day type card. When you use the software, you are able to hide some of the cut lines and modify the images a little. It is so much fun and so addicting. Here are the few cards I made that lazy Sunday afternoon. I’ll do my best to list the supplies I used though some of this stuff I have had forever and I’m not sure where I got them. All of these images were cut from the Spring Holiday Cards cartridge at 3″ and are on a standard 4 1/2″ x 5″ card. Continue reading

I ended up walking 22.5 miles for the night around the track at The Grace Center and raised $200 for Zach’s Team and for cancer awareness and support.
The weather was wonderful and as the opening ceremonies got underway we thought we might see lots of rain. Instead, we had a few sprinkles for about 10 minutes or so and lots of rainBOWS. It was soooo cool. Read Continue reading
