My baby arrived...

my Cricut Expression! I picked it up at the local UPS dock on Thursday, which just happens to be about a minute from my work. It is BIG! I have only been able to play a few times with it since Emma wants to touch it. I hope to maybe get Jon to take Emma out for a few hours and let me play. I have seen several scrapbook layouts in magazines using the Cricut that I want to recreate. The opportunities with it are nearly endless once I actually read the manual. lol My mom has the regular Cricut and I've used it a few times. I love that we were able to go ahead and get my "birthday" present with our tax refund! There is a monthly Cricut workshop at the local scrapbook store so I hope I can get on the list and know I have a date with my Cricut once a month at least. I have been hanging out at the message boards over at for about a month now, learning tips, tricks and ideas. I also found a lady who makes Vera Bradley-styled bags for the Cricut and the Expression. I have mine on the way! I'll post pics as soon as I get it (as long as Jon cooperates and uploads them for me!) He got a hard drive back up for all our pictures a few months ago and I have not had time to figure out how to upload to it. We have Photoshop too and I want to play with it too, especially with the shots we got of Emma last Sunday. So sweet!

It is also SNOWING this morning! I hope we can bundle Emma up and go play in it later. It looks like there is a good 2-3 inches on the ground and it is still coming down. This of course, has shut everything down! We were planning on going to Granny's house to visit and have Granny help me create Peytonn's birthday present. I am hoping to make him a pair of lounging pants and a bucket hat in the sock monkey fabric! Wish me luck...I am wondering if we will even get out of the house today though. The news is making it sound awful outside but I grew up in Indiana where this amount of snow is nothing. Then again, people have no clue how to drive in it here so maybe we should just stay home!

Keep looking here and I hope to add the pics I've been wanting to post. :) Especially if we are SNOWED IN!!
