Won't Be Back Until March....

For those of you that don't know things have not been great around here for the last couple of weeks, we have had lots of family matters to deal with and we are slowly getting back on track. I will also be going into respite next week too, to give my family a break so feel it would be better to start a fresh after that.

However, I do have one piece of fabulous news which is that my adorable husband surprised me with a brand new Cricut Expression machine, it came right out of the blue in the middle of everything going on and I am slowly getting used to it (slightly different to your little machine we use at the crop Tracy lol). It came with Plantin Schoolbook, Accent Essentials and the Design Studio so just need to learn the design studio part now and then I will look to getting some more cartridges.

Enjoy the next couple of weeks and I will see you all soon.
