Using my cricut

I discovered that my local library has cricut cartridges available for check out. I am excited to try cartridges that I would not buy and see what they are like. This cartridge was called destinations.
I'm sure I will never visit enough destinations to warrant the purchase of this cartridge, but I did enjoy playing with it.
I have a son who lives in the windy city, and one who served a two year mission in Rio, and I really hope to see the statue of liberty before I die. And I have one son who was married in the Salt Lake temple. I have borrowed Boys will be boys cartridge next.

My New Toy

I just added this great tool to my work room. I will most likely use this to scrapbook, but I also plan to to make signs and tags for my soap. I replaced this tool

which I am selling on ebay. I just wanted to have a bigger roll of adhesive to work with before I have to change it. The new ATG gun works very smoothly, and is a dream to operate. I feel like I have more control over where the adhesive begins and ends.

Oh Baby!

I have just made a new soap that I designed as baby soap. I infused the Olive oil with calendula for its microbial properties, and scented it with Lavendar Essential oil for its calming properties. It is rich and sweet. I tried a new mold, that I am not going to use again. I had a hard time removing the soap, so it is not as smooth as I had hoped. It is available in my Etsy shop Country Closet.
