Any day spent quilting is a great day! I hope my posts and pics inspire my readers to spend as much time as possible producing the works of art that feed our need to create!

Scrapping weekend introduced me to my new love...the Cricut!
This past weekend I went to a scrapper's retreat at Maranatha. It was a lot of fun, and I was so happy with the amount of work that I got done. I shared a table with my daughter in law, her mother, and a friend of her mom's. It was a comfortable work environment. Occasional friendly chatter occurred, but mostly, we just worked on our pages. Because of my quilting business and helping my mom, I haven't been able to focus on scrapping for the past couple of years. It felt so great to just put everything else out of my mind and enjoy the process. I have been an avid scrapper for about 17 years, and it was awesome to get back to it. I was so inspired that I came home and ordered 150 more prints from Snapfish, and went on Ebay and bought a Cricut. I had never used one before this weekend, and I must say, that after having used it at the retreat...I HAD to buy one! My first thought was to ask for one for Christmas from my hubby, but, then I realized that is two long months away! Having never been good at delayed gratification, I took matters into my own hands, and found an awesome deal. Yay for Ebay!
