How I Became a Cricut Owner
A friend of mine recently convinced me that I *needed* a Cricut Explore Air machine. So I took the plunge, or rather, my husband took the plunge for me and bought me the Cricut Explore Air with Ultimate Bundle during a sale after finding a great coupon code.
I am still figuring this thing out, y’all. It’s a bit intimidating. BUT I am SO excited about the possibilities it presents! We got into a bit of a fight trying to make a birthday card last weekend, but it’s all good. I will master this machine and make it do all the things in my head. Just give me some time and practice (I am short on both since the babies’ sleep has been WAY off since the holidays!!).
I just know it’s going to be love once I get the hang of the Cricut. I’ve already had some small successes, but I am finding the learning curve to be a bit steep. I am one of those people who wants to jump right in and figure things out as I go. Which is a great approach aside from the inevitable frustrations that come from learning new skills in uncharted waters.
I am excited to be able to offer new products in my Etsy store. I am envisioning everything from flour sack towels to cupcake toppers to T-shirts. I probably need to narrow my focus down, but my mind is jumping all over the place with the magnitude of options I can now create.

Anywho, I made a little video of myself opening up the Cricut when it arrived to show what is included in the box in more detail as well as what the ultimate bundle entails. I hope that it helps you make a purchasing decision if you are considering a Cricut for yourself!
