"No-Sew Blankets in 30 Minutes!"
"5 Easy Steps to a Clean House"
or the worst...
"3-ingredient dessert for only 200 calories!" (But it's never 200 calories, and always has a few more ingredients.
But, of course I still look on Pinterest, pinning crafts, quilts and food with the greatest of intentions of doing them ALL.
And sometimes, my job requires me to look on Pinterest ( I know, dream come true). I have recently taken up the position of Coordinator for the night time MOPS and once a month we get to make a craft. Where is the perfect place to look for crafts? Pinterest of course!
I decided to choose a pretty intense craft. Blocks of wood painted with fall colors and lettering on one side, and winter colors and more lettering on the other side. The only dilemma being, I am not so great at painting letters. They always look a little crooked and seem to be too thick in some areas and too thin in other areas. And then my boss said the most amazing thing, "Let's get a Cricut!"
We would not only be using the Cricut on this craft, but on many others. An investment. I was ecstatic. It was a crafting game-changer! When it was delivered I immediately set it up, and started fiddling around with fonts and clip art. We purchased the Cricut Explore, which hooks straight to your computer with a USB instead of using cartridges. So font and clipart options were endless.

We'll be making around 20 over the next 3 weeks, here's to hoping everything goes very smoothly!
