I had this brilliant idea yesterday: you can cut felt with the Cricut! Theoretically. I thought this would save oodles of time cutting out little felt pieces. After several tests, I cannot get it to work. Curses. I’ve watched several YouTube videos on it, tried the different tricks and nuthin. So I decided to fake it […]

Oh wow. I almost legitimately totally forgot about blogging! Glad I remembered, I was about to go to bed. But hey, I still have 15 minutes to get it in. I’m golden. :) Above is one of many failed photos I tried taking of Miss Mitzi. Today’s topic for the sketch challenge is your pet. Any time I […]

I ordered my supplies for the glass gilding class in a couple weeks. It was a bit tough clicking that Confirm Order button. Oh boy, that was pricey. :-) Which is funny because I’m not usually squeamish about big ticket items. But all that gold… totally worth it though! I ordered it all from a […]
