My Expression Storage Solution

*Mrs.D* of the Cricut Message Board gave everyone this awesome idea! The Kobalt 26" plastic tool box is a perfect home for the Cricut Expression! It is normally $19.99 but when I bought mine, it was only $15.99. You can find them at Lowe's in the tool section.

My New Paper Trimmer

On Cyber Monday, Joann's was offering some awesome sales. I decided to purchase the Fiskars Desktop Rotary Trimmer...they had it for $24.99 (plus free ship!) (normally $60 not on sale) so how could I resist. While I was waiting for it to be shipped, I was reading several reviews about the MM trimmer and several others on the Cricut Message Board. I was starting to regret my purchase. Long story short, my Fiskars trimmer arrived and I decided to 'play' with it and see if I wanted to keep it...and YES!!!! I want to keep it! I will never part with my new friend!!! We are going to be an extremely happy couple!  You do have to buy replacement blades and cutting bars but they aren't expensive especially if you use a M's coupon. Plus you can buy additional blades for scoring, perforating, deckle, pinking, wave, and scallop!!! So anyways, give the Fiskars Desktop Rotary Trimmer a try if you are in the market for a new trimmer! Hope this helps anyone who can't decide what trimmer to purchase!

A Bug Head RAK

On the Cricut Message Board, I just hit 500 posts which means I have received my "first bug head". They now refer to me as a "Cricuteer". To celebrate my bug head, I offered a RAK (random act of kindness). Other message board members submitted their name and I pick a number.

Congratulations Pearls623 for winning the Xyron 150 Essential Tools Value Pack! It will come in handy!

So congrats Pearls623...and the ironic thing...she just offered an awesome RAK for finally earning her bug head!!! I seriously can't believe how many people responded with their posts. I am working on another RAK for the month of January as something exciting is happening in my life (You will just have to wait and see!) However throughout the entire night, one particular MB member was posting like a mad woman...Kimberly216!!!!!!!!!!!!! I wish I had the patience to count all the posts! Soooooo as a surprise RAK, I am going to go to M's tomorrow to pick up her very own X150!  Anyways, I am new to the MB but I have never seen a RAK go this crazy! Seriously...We had 3190 posts and 3078 were in just a little over three hours!
