I love to create things using my Cricut Imagine not just for cards or scrapbooking, but also that can serve other purposes. That’s one of the reasons that I absolutely adore the Close to My Heart Cricut Artiste cartridge. It has so many 3D objects that I can easily cut and assemble that help me either package a present pretty or even store some supplies (See my Notepad Holder w/ Pen).
I saw on the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog that this week’s challenge was to make a project using some type of school supplies. I was also lucky to find that Bitten By the Bug 2‘s challenge was also Back to School! Well – I don’t have children and school supplies for me is my Laptop, Post it Notes, and Index Cards. I know – I’m strange. Because of my Fibromyalgia, it’s easier for me to take notes while typing (I type far faster than I can write) and then I use Post It notes as reminders. Studying ALWAYS consists of the use of Index cards. This is the way it’s always been for me. I was always known as the index card girl. Even at my current job – until recently – I was known for always having index cards and a plethora of Sticky Notes.

I’ve been very ill the past few weeks and the doctors don’t quite know why yet. My spirit has been down as I haven’t been well enough to craft much or even blog very much. Today, however, my spirits have lifted a bit.
My husband and I have been working on my craft room / office since the end of February. It’s been slow going since I’ve been so sick. He can only do so much in the room before I have to come in and organize the things into place so he can come back in and move things around again. I’m so grateful that he has been such a good sport about it and so amazingly helpful. I don’t know what I would do without him.
First – my craft room is finally in a place where my Imagine can fit on my table and be setup. That’s the first exciting news because I think this weekend I’ll be able to craft!!
Second – I got in a bunch of orders I had placed – My Pink Stamper, My Creative Time, and the two new Imagine Cartridges. How much fun is it to get all these wonderful packages!!!
Third – and most important – I found that Megan Elizabeth Ink Edgerz came out!! I’ve been waiting for these and was so excited to see them! I think I was one of the first to purchase them – woo hoo!!
You’ve got to check these out – they are amazing and go so well with her Sparkle Lightz, Paper Layerz, and Chipboard Stickers.
A few colors -
I can’t wait until my weekend begins tomorrow at Noon so I can finish up my craft room enough to get craftin’!!
