New Blog Template & Cricut Practice

Well?  What do ya' think?  I've been toying around with new designs and just finally decided to click it and do it!  Little did I know that Blogger had changed the game plan on me, but I quickly figured it out and I think once I get past the initial shock of the change I'll be back up to blogging speed!

If you are interested in find a new template for your own blog, please visit this wonderful site...http://www.leeloublogs.blogspot.com/ Lots of cute designs and easy to follow instructions.

So... would you like to know what I've been doing with myself for the past year of so?  Well... not a whole lot of anything new, that's for sure!  Just working full time and chasing kiddos around - can you say ---'BORING'?  :)

However..... I have recently rediscovered my love of the Cricut and I've finally gotten over my fear of VINYL!  I really don't know why I procrastinated so much with using vinyl?  It's really quite simple and I love the finished look of my projects.  Now if I could just figure out how to use that frazzling vinyl transfer tape!  UGH!!  I have watched those stinking YouTube videos over and over and they look so easy, but when I get ready to actually use the transfer tape I have total brain blockage!  I feel so stupid!!  I really have to get this conquered or I'm going to start to develop a complex (among the many other complexes I have)! 
My first attempt at using cutting vinyl with Cricut

I realize these two canisters don't look like much, but for some crazy reason I just felt completely overwhelmed at the thought of trying my hand at these.  They were so easy and I now I feel so silly!

Of course my next stop was PINTEREST!!   I immediately began pinning anything and everything that was remotely related to or could be done using my Cricut!  Now I realize that I may never get around to completing half of the pins I have on my boards, but still ---- those ideas are rolling around in my already overwhelmed brain.  Look out...I've got rolls of vinyl, a few new cartridges, and a Cricut Expression that has been collecting dust for over 2 years!  I'm prepped and ready!
