My New Hobby

As you may have read--I am a creative person. I think that it is important to have something outside of the regular mom stuff in my life to keep my sanity. Crafting and creating is one way that I like to do this. For the past year I have been doing makeup here and there, and that has been a blessing in my life my multiple reasons. But my new favorite thing is creating fun things for P and myself with my new Cricut Explore that I got for my birthday from my Mom.

My only regret is I wish I had this machine before P was born. I would have had every onesie personalized. Which--as a southern girl is a must!

So is it easy to use? It's definitely idiot resistant in my opinion. The Cricut has online software that is pretty self explanatory and I have been able to find and convert images online into cutting files without having to spend any money. I know eventually for any intricate designs I will probably need to purchase files (but you can find them on etsy for like $3).

I can't wait to make P's second birthday banner and her other party decorations myself. It should cut down on the cost of her party and give me the satisfaction of having done it all by myself

If you are someone who likes to craft and create--I would definitely suggest getting one of these machines for yourself. There are so many things that I haven't even attempted to create yet. It seems like the options are endless. This was in the inspiration I was craving before.

Happy Wednesday, Y'all!

  1. This is SO awesome! Totally jealous of your new hobby. I feel like I wouldn't even know where to begin with one of those things, haha.
