WOW - I have been busy!!!

Ok - I have several new pictures to share!  I have an new addition to my home:

Wait for it....wait for it....wait for it....


Oh my goodness, isn't she lovely!?!?!?!?  It is the Cricut Expression!  I just had to have her.  I love her.  She and I are starting to get along very well!

Here is the first thing big project I created with her, it is not finished, because I am out of vinyl, I need to add two names in the middle, Bill & Wendy will be in the center in silver with a white & sign.  I love this!
WOW, I am so excited.  Yes, it is a little crooked if you really stare hard at it, but I am proud.  Hopefully I will get really good at it and make these as Christmas gifts. I think anyone would like to have one of these with their own names of course.  Don't you?

Now, the first week school was back in, I pulled everything out of my kitchen pantry and I took all the shelves out and painted the pantry. I love it. It is just a neutral khaki color, same as my foyer.  Then, I took some MDF and had them cut it in two pieces at Home Depot and I painted them and layed them on my UGLY wire shelves. I was going to add moulding to make it really look nice, but the way my shelves are, makes it not so simple anymore. So, for now, I will just leave the MDF on the shelf.  I only have two of them done. I need to go buy the rest of the MDF and have them cut, paint them and lay them on the other shelves.  Perhaps I can do that this weekend?!?!?  Not sure.  But here is the before:


Yes, I know, very messy and yucky!  But, not anymore.  So, that brings me to my first project with my Cricut Machine.  I made labels and these jars and used a Chalk Pen to write on them, so I can change it if I want to.  Pretty cool if I say so myself!

So, what do you think?  I love it. I am still working on it, but for now, I am happy and it looks tons better than it did.

See, I told you I had been busy.
