Have you ever wanted something for a long, loooonnnggg time then once you got it didn’t use it for weeks? You know how long I’ve wanted a Silhouette right? Like a year and a half long. About a month ago this big brown box arrived at my door step. I squealed in delight because hidden inside the big brown box was the one material item, the one craft tool I have ever wanted the most. I’m not a very materialistic person, I don’t spend much on clothes (hello $8 Target t-shirts!), shoes, and accessories. So buying a Silhouette was a big deal for me. My husband has wanted to get it for me for my birthday, our anniversary, and Christmas. But I wouldn’t let him. I kept telling him that I had too much guilt since I already had a Cricut. Well my Cricut has been acting funny so I finally caved and ordered a Cameo. I was thrilled when it came, as happy as a kid in a candy store kind of happy. Then life got busy and for weeks it’s been sitting on my counter waiting to be used. I’ve browsed the online store plenty of times and have downloaded the free shape of the week every Monday, but not until today did I actually use my Silhouette. This is what I made:
And the finally verdict? I love love love my Cameo!! Thank you everyone who suggested it, you’re right it’s amazing! I have SO many ideas to use it for. I hope many of you have a Silhouette as well because I’d like to share some fun tutorials with you soon.
On another note I have something rather embarrassing to show. I recently said that I’m working on a mini living room makeover. Well here are the before pictures. This is what my living room looks like 90% of the time. The only time it’s decorated is during a holiday, then once the holiday is over it’s back to being plain Jane.
Not very attractive is it? Want to know the worst part? We bought our house 2 years ago and it’s been like this since. I’m just so indecisive I can’t pick a paint color out or decide if we even want to paint. I’m horrible at making decisions. It’s drives my husband crazy how indecisive I am. This week I set out to find a few accessories and new wall decor to freshen up our home for Spring. Come back tomorrow for the reveal!
