As you can tell by the title, I got a new toy. No it’s not really a toy. It is a machine though that I absolutely love already. It is a Silhouette Cameo 3! If you didn’t know that I love to craft things now you do. I have always been a crafter since I was a kid. Now thing machine will help me do things a lot quicker and neater as well. For those of you who have never heard of this machine it essentially a cutting machine. It cuts vinyl, paper, fabric etc. It can even do metal engraving if you have the right tools to go with it. I got mine because I saw all these cute signs and mugs people were making and charging crazy prices. So I decided I was gonna save some money and get one myself. I can now make the things I wanted instead of having to buy it from someone else. Make sense? I think so.
Now so far I have created a lot of designs in Silhouette Studio for mugs and signs. Also even some shirt designs but I haven’t gotten that far yet. I finished my first signs today they are now hung in our bedroom above our bed. I have a mug for myself. My husband even wanted me to personalize his work notebook with his last name, which I did of course. Oh an I cant forget I also decorated 3 planters now I just gotta find 3 fake plants to put in them and they will be finished.
My husband and I recently took a trip to Ikea last weekend. Thankfully I was able to finally get a desk. So now the other half of our long living room is my craft room. I am loving having all my craft stuff in one place instead of all over the house or in a closet crammed together. I need to get an Alex drawer or two still. That way everything can have its spot. So far I only have a magazine holder for my colored paper and card stock paper and then some bag holders for my vinyl and the desk. But that’s okay I have plenty of time to get other things.
Sorry this blog post is so long and random I just feel like I haven’t posted in awhile cause of all the craziness happening all at once over here. I just wanted to tell y’all abut my new toy and how I am so excited to be able to do my crafts again! Thanks for reading this crazy mess.
P.s. This blog post is not me bragging.
Feel free to follow my blog for crafting posts if you are interested (: there will be a lot coming in the future.
