day 181: Counting Cards

About a year and a half ago, I begged and pleaded and begged some more for a Cricut. Don't know what that is? Then go here, and explore the wonderful world of the Cricut!

But, I digress...

I was begging and pleading for a Cricut for Christmas in 2009. And, thanks be to Wal-Mart's awesome Black Friday sale, I got one!! It's black, and it's awesome. Honestly though, I took it out of the box to play with it as soon as I got it and then put it back. I didn't touch it again until December 2010 when I began making things for the wedding. Mostly, I made the tags for the favors. {seen below} I made a few other small things for the wedding, but that was about it until around the end of April 2011.

At the end of April, I got seriously jealous of my neighboring teacher at school. She was making the cutest things for her classroom and her students. I decided that I needed to do that for my kids in my classroom! Then, I started making cards too. And, I've mainly been making cards for the past few months - mother's day, birthdays, father's day, etc. You can see all of them below!!

Now, I get to make birthday banners and signs for my niece's first birthday in July! I will definitely be sure to post about what I make!! It's sure to be super cute - minnie mouse & zebra prints. Cool, right??
