Win your own Silhouette from Blue Cricket Designs Blog!!!!

I read orange

That's right my dears! Your eyes do not deceive you! The generous folks from Silhouette are here to make a crafters dream come true!

About a month ago I had a very magical delivery day! A beautiful new toys was dropped on my doorstep and ever since then I've been discovering more and more reasons why I love my new Silhouette!

I have always wanted a craft cutting machine but the expense of all the cartridges always scared me away! Silhouette is different then other craft cutters and works with your PC! Digital images are already included and others can be bought individually from their online store! So no more expensive cartridges that are full of designs but you only like a small percentage of them! This way allows you to pay for only what you want! And guess what....they giveaway free design downloads every week!

Remember my Lunch Time Love Notes project? The silhouette made making those sweet little notes so simple and easy!

And I fell in love with the idea of making my own stencils! Once again the Silhouette made it all possible!

There are endless things this little machine can do and the best part is that it's only limited to your imagination! Scrapbookers aren't the only ones who can have fun! I for one am not a scrapbooker but I still get plenty of use and have endless ideas on what I want to create next!

Busy Busy Busy.....

It has been so busy around here lately! Doctors visits for all 5 kids, including trips to the dentist and eye doctor for 3 of them as well. Still busy working on the addition and hoping to have it done this weekend!!! Me and my husband will FINALLY have a bedroom down stairs, which means room switches for almost everyone. My oldest daughter will move into our old room, and finally have a room of her own, the two oldest boys will stay in their room but will finally be getting it re done! And my two littlest ones will move into their own NEW room downstairs next to mine and my husbands new room! We have beautiful teak wood flooring, a dark moss/olive green colored walls and one wall will be faux brick that goes wonderfully with the green on the walls. On that wall will be a fake fireplace, with the fake logs that look like they are burning, and the rest of the room with be done in a somewhat Rustic French Country theme......large plaid prints, large florals, and solids!!! I am SO excited!

Please today is the 1st of September which means it is what I consider FALL!!!!!! My FAVORITE time of year and I will be sharing tons and tons of FRUGAL decorating ideas very soon!
