Cooking with Cricut Guest Designer!

Ok, I am a blog snob.  Yep, I am.  I have some blogs that I am totally loyal and faithful too.  Instead of making myself crazy applying for every DT thing that pops up I have decided to be a faithful follower to the blogs I most like.  Then, when something comes up, I can feel good about applying and saying how much I enjoy that blog.  That is how I started with my DT spot at Getting Cricky

Just about every week I have tried to link up to the challenge at Cooking with Cricut.  The challenges are fun over there and the DT does wonderful work.  It helps that that challenge drives some good traffic to my blog too ;).  You know, I am one of those stats stalkers.  I love numbers and frankly I love attention so reading my stat info gives me a funny little high.  CWC feeds that ;)

Here is my post over at their page:
I want to start my post by saying- Thank you so much to the team at Cooking with Cricut for asking me to do this.  I was SO EXCITED when I was contacted by you!  I have been watching the challenges on this blog for months and participate often because I love them!  It is great to be a part of this and I feel very honored that you asked me to do this!  Your DT is incredible and I am given so much inspiration from their work!

Celebrations was one of my first cartridges!  My mother bought me my first Cricut for Christmas and gave me two cartridges Celebrations and Stretch Your Imagination.  Sometimes I get so bogged down in what is new that I forget my oldies but goodies.  So when CWC contacted me about doing this I thought I would explore a forgotten cartridge on my Gypsy.  I got my first Cricut for Christmas 2009 and for Christmas 2010 hubby bought me the Expression.  I had wanted a Cricut for a couple of years before getting one so I was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO excited!  Then I couldn't live without having a Gypsy for Christmas 2010 mom got me that. My mother is great at gift giving! My life hasn't been the same ;). Crafting has quickly become my passion. I am a Kindergarten teacher and mother of 2 so my machines get plenty of use!  I joined the blogging world in January of 2011 and have found that to be an addiction that I love to feed.  I look forward to reading comments from my followers and find I need to check those as often as I check Facebook (which is A LOT).  In the summer I spend most of my time enjoying my 2 kids and husband.  We try to go to the ocean at least once a week and we camp as often as we can.  Camping is an acquired taste that I am still working on but this summer it is far better than last.  As a kid I loved it, but now I love real beds and AC.  The only bad thing about camping is my Cricut doesn't come... yet.

For my project I created some gift bags with matching tags and a card.


  1. Rebecca such gorgeous projects and yes it is always interesting to have a look at the stats!


  2. Congratulations on being Guest Designer. Your bags are all great. I love all the colors.
