My Toys!

Well I got a few new toys to play with. Before we left North Dakota my twins got a hold of some scissors and cut the band on my Cricut which holds the cutting housing. I am getting that fixed, but I just couldn't wait. I scored one of the new purple Cricuts that Wal-Mart had on the day after Thanksgiving. Purple is one of my favorite colors and I just had to have it. I have waited on Cricut and other scrapbooking companies to come out with more purple stuff. It seems that everything is in pink which I do like, but purple is my choice.

   Isn't that cool the color of the lighted buttons are even a purple color!

So much prettier than just a plain Cricut.

My other new toy is my Gypsy. Yes I know I said that I was not going to buy one, but I just realized how hard it is to keep changing all the carts when I want to use more that one on a design. I still haven't learned how to use it that much. Seems like I will be watching lots of YouTube videos to learn how.

Hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas holiday. Since we are now back in TX we were able to spend it with our family even at our house this time. What a change. We usually travel to a family members house, but Kevin was on call for work so no go this time. I do have a post for tomorrow so come back to see what I am learning right now!

I love the new Cricut and been contemplating selling my plain white 1 to buy me the same color you have. Just love the design on it. Have you been able to work with your Gypsy? I feel so dumb when it comes to that 1. Hope you are doing good.. Don't forget to enter my Blog Candy Contest!
Hugs and Miss you!
