Baby Showers, Cricuts, & Life

I honestly don’t know where the time goes.

It seems like just yesterday I was recording Episode 11, yet here it is over a week later and I didn’t get last week’s post done.

I hosted my daughter’s baby shower on the weekend, so that has been taking up some of my time lately. It’s funny how something that wass only going to take a few hours to organize ended up taking days. But truth be told, I wouldn’t have it any other way.

I also invested in a Cricut Maker, and have been trying to figure out some of its features. I think making the decals for the party favours was the easiest thing we did, even though it was time consuming. I love how they turned out, and the guests were thrilled to have something they could use for years to come.

As I get better with my Cricut I’ll be offering more items in my Etsy Shops, but for now I just have the decal above plus one more. I have to pay for it somehow. Plus it’s a nice little sidehustle, because I can be creative and not end up with thousands of decals I’ll never use.

I’m working on learning how to create stickers, but so far all I have managed to do is destroy sheets of sticker paper. I’m missing something in the setup of the print-then-cut feature, and I’m not sure what it is. I know it’s operator error all the way.

I have also been getting ready to take a vacation outside of Canada. I’m excited and terrified at the same time. I’ll be travelling with friends who have travelled a lot over the years, so that part doesn’t worry me. I think it’s mostly fear of the unknown; and the fact I’ve only flown a couple times before. And it took me almost 50 years to go the first time.

A short post is better than none at all, and I will try my hardest to get another one out before we leave in a week’s time. Between the upcoming trip and grandbaby number one arriving within the next few weeks, life is going to be a bit hectic. I just hope baby waits until I get back from my vacation.

I’ll close this post with this: how old were you when you went on a vacation outside your home country?
