My New Cricut Mini, Yeah


Yes, tools. The fun part of any project is gathering in your goods, checking out the new must have tools, and generally poking around your new love to see what you can’t live without.

Well, after looking at all the reviews online I decided to try out the Cricut Mini. I am an Amazon Prime member so I try to buy from Amazon first because I get free shipping, and it is so easy to do returns, get credits etc. I love places that make it easy for me to do business with them.

Anyway, my Cricut Mini arrived yesterday. Last night John helped me attach it to my computer, download all the correct drivers and get it ready to use. Unfortunately, I had to do some work, i.e. earn money to pay for the Cricut, :-), so I haven’t had an opportunity to use it yet.

As soon as I get the rest of my morning chores done, I am getting out the Mini and cutting out my first pieces. Stay tuned to my blog for additional updates on my scrapbooking journey. I must say, I am having a blast. I am so lucky that my lack of visual talent doesn’t have to hold me back. I am overwhelmed by the information people are willing to share on the internet. Don’t you just love blogs and Youtube?

I know this will shock many of you, but I am actually tealess this morning. I made pancakes for breakfast, and, horrors of horrors, went for the diet coke this morning. I am sure there will be an iced sweet tea in my future today as we travel to visit my family in Houston. I can’t image a road trip without sweet tea, can you? My son bought me the refill cup from Bob Miller’s, so Sweet Tea is really on tap for this trip, lol. Refills are only 50 cents. You can’t beat that price.

Anyway, I hope that all of you, have time today to relax, with either a cup of hot tea, or a wonderful iced sweet tea… It’s the only way to live, Southern Style.

    Love it…. what does a Cricut mini do?? Not being a scrape booker, I had to ask. Have a safe and uneventful trip to Houston. Wonder what you’ll find on the way??

  2. Hi Lynn, The Cricut mini is a cool little machine that attaches to your computer and then cuts out cool designs. It gives you perfect letters for headlines, snowflakes, pumpkins, flowers, hearts etc. to use for decorating your scrapbook pages. This is the smallest of the cricuts as I am just getting started I thought it would be best to see if I used it but they do have bigger machines that do more than the one I bought.
