New Cartridges and A Special Letter

My Cricut obsession over the past year has taken off exponentially. I purchased my Baby Bug from HSN in November of 2009. I don't think I actually used it until the summer of 2010. My bundle came with two cartridges (George and Designer's Calendar). In the few final months of 2010, that total was 12. I upgraded to the Expression in December of 2010. Well today I received three more in the mail. LOL! These were the ones that I received:

* Don Juan
* Mini Monograms
* New Arrivals

I'm excited to get to use them. That won't be tonight though, I feel really sick. I also got a special letter in the mail today. I heard about Operation Write Home (OWH) from another blogger. I went to their website, did a bit of research, and immediately knew that I had to help out. I grew up in the military. My stepfather served in Iraq in 2004. We kept in touch via email sporadically, so I understand the need for paper communication.

Luckily, I work for a wonderful company and we are always looking for ways to help the community. I'm organizing a "Card Making Night" for the staff to get together and make cards for the men and women in the service. My special letter contained a personalized stamp to support OWH. I'm hoping to get the event planned for early summer.

So enough of my rambling. Have a great night and hopefully I start feeling better so that I can get into my craftroom.

Stay Crafty


  1. I love the idea of a card making night for those who serve in our military. Be sure to take pictures!

  2. How lovely that you can get your staff involved! Have a great time crafting (and enjoy your new - and old - cartridges)!
