I emailed my mom today. I left Minnesota yesterday and I am now back in Washington. I was so excited to show my mom how to use her Cricut (I ended up giving her my Expression since I now have an E2). She is super excited to start a blog of her own as well, so she will have to wait until I come back in December to get that together. (Movers come next week to put our stuff in storage!)
Today is a big day for her and I don’t think she quite understands it yet. I emailed her about a challenge she could participate in this afternoon and she got super excited to put her skills to the test as soon as she got home from work!
Curt Jensen, an Illustrator of Provo Craft, has a challenge on his blog! My mom was so excited, except she didn’t have a blog put together yet. So I offered to showcase her craftiness on my blog until I came to help her set one up.
Here is what she (my mom, her name is Laurie) created using the Campin’ Critters Cartridge!
She made a beautiful nature journal to use up at our cabin in Northern Minnesota. She loves journaling about the birds, trees, and whatever else she can see up there… snow sometimes too. In the email she sent me, she said that she enjoyed the layering features. I think she did a wonderful job! Especially for having her Cricut for only a WEEK!
I would have participated in the challenge myself, but its official. ALL of my craft supplies are in Minnesota, and I will not see them until December 1st!
