It's here - Cricut Maker Bundle - Black Friday deal

Hooray, my beautiful new Cricut Maker has arrived. I can't even describe how happy I am. I am feeling so motivated to start creating - it's brilliant!! I have missed paper and glue so much and I am raring to get back. 

Rather than rushing straight in I have spent today sorting my room out a bit - there is so much I have forgotten about. I have placed an order at Ikea for a few more shelves so hubby is collecting those tomorrow. I have also ordered a sit/stand chair which will be really useful I think - so much of my crafting was always done standing but my poor old back isn't as young as it once was.

I just don't know where to start with my cricut but I think I will be making lots of cards plus other crafty things too. My son is getting married next year so lots of invites to make too. He was only a teenager the last time I crafted regularly - where does the time go?

With Christmas just around the corner I am sure I will be making a few handmade gifts too.

Ah, it's great to feel like this again about crafting.

Here's me with a very cheesy grin after I unboxed all my goodies, lol. I got a great bundle from Hobbycraft saving over £120 which is just amazing.

And here is my test piece from setup .... I just had to choose this image lol. How gorgeous is the paper - it is from an old Kaisercraft pad from the Shaken not Stirred Collection. 

That's enough waffle from me.

I'll be posting a few videos also on my Youtube channel if you want to have a look. This one is a rather embarrassing unboxing of me being too excited hahaha.

Take care everyone, stay safe. See you in a couple of days

Exciting Purchase - Cricut Maker

The journey back to crafting after a long break can be a long process. I’ve had a few false starts over the past couple of years. I’m in a position now where I have more time to be creative combined with the strong urge to get back. 

Yesterday I had a bit of a splurge and bought the cricut maker - I got a nice bundle thrown in too as part of a Black Friday deal from Hobbycraft. 

This cost me £380 which is a big spend but it is worth it to grab my interest and imagination  it is due to arrive on Tuesday and I can’t wait  I’ve lots to learn but I can’t wait  I guess my old, battered cuttlebug will be feeling even more abandoned lol  

Advice, tips and recommended groups to join are very much appreciated  

See you all soon with my first creation in a long while
