How I love my Cricut

Morning all hope you are all well. Since I went on my Cricut Retreat last year with the lovely Mel Heaton I have soooo fallen in love with my Cricut machine and now use it every day, it is so amazing. So today I thought I would share with you a card I designed using my Expression 2. The great thing about the Cricut is if you use it with Cricut Craft Room you can save your layouts to use another time.

Something we should all read everyday 7%

This is something I read on the blog of a lovely lady Melanie Heaton and think it is something that I should read everyday.

"7%"
Written by a 90 year old

This is something we should all read at least once a week!!!!! Make sure you read to the end!!!!!!

Written by Regina Brett, 90 years old, of the Plain Dealer, Cleveland , Ohio .

"To celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 45 lessons life taught me. It is the most requested column I've ever written.

My odometer rolled over to 90 in August, so here is the column once more:

1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.

2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.

3. Life is too short – enjoy it.

4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and family will.

5. Pay off your credit cards every month.

6. You don't have to win every argument. Stay true to yourself.

7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.

8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it.

9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.

10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.

11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.

12. It's OK to let your children see you cry.

13. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it.

15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye, but don't worry, God never blinks.

16.. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.

17. Get rid of anything that isn't useful. Clutter weighs you down in many ways.

18. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger.

19.. It's never too late to be happy. But it’s all up to you and no one else.

20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer.

21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy clothes. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special.

22. Over prepare, then go with the flow.

23. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple.

24. The most important sex organ is the brain.

25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.

26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words 'In five years, will this matter?'

27. Always choose life.

28. Forgive

29. What other people think of you is none of your business.

30. Time heals almost everything. Give time time.

31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.

32. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

33. Believe in miracles.

34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn't do.

35. Don't audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.

36. Growing old beats the alternative of dying young.

37. Your children get only one childhood.

38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.

39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.

40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back.

41. Envy is a waste of time. Accept what you already have, not what you need

42. The best is yet to come...

43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.

44. Yield.

45. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift."

Its estimated 93% won't forward this. If you are one of the 7% who will, forward this with the title '7%'.

I'm in the 7%. Friends are the family that you choose.

Its worth reading.

Tooth Fairy House




I am having a great day today housework and washing done, craft room clean well maybe not for long lol and hubby gone fishing for the day, so time for me to catch and play. So I thought as I had not blogged for a few days I would share with you something I made for Sara Davies little boy Oliver, a Tooth Fairy House. I had such fun making this it was so different and as those that know me well I love a good 3d project. You place the babies tooth under the pillow in the box and the fairies gift is left just inside the door.

Rachelle Ann Miller

 

Morning all well today is another bright and sunny day and it really makes you feel like Spring is on its way. Today my sneek peek is from the second Rachelle Ann Miller CD Rom from Crafters Companion which launches on Friday 7th March on Create and Craft. This is a brand new section on the CD of Alphabets and Numbers so I thought it would be a lovely idea to make a numbers book to give to a small child, the papers are so beautiful on this CD it was so hard chossing which ones.
