(in my Oprah voice)

I'm pretty excited about the things that I've been able to accomplish over the last few days.
One of my Christmas gifts was a gift card so after promising not to use it on something super "practical"
I used  some of  it to purchase a few items that I've had my eye on for quite some time.
A few books to inspire, encouragne,challenge and stimulate my mind.
Some fancy new chalk to spruce up my  chalk frame's (sometimes) weekly menus and verses
 aaaand........(drumroll please)
I'm so excited!
After I purchased my other items yesterday I was toying around with the idea of what else to spend my money on.
I wanted it to be something good.
Something I would use/enjoy for a long time.
And for once I wasn't sure I wanted it to be makeup or clothes.
Gasp! Shocker, I know.
But since I work for this nifty company and we had a FABULOUS Urban Decay blowout - I was able to purchase 6 brushes, 2 smudge stick eyeliners and 1 box of gems for about $20.

all my loot!
the brushes

smoke out eye pencils - Mary Jane & Green Goddess
Those arrived last week.
I was thrilled to say the least
So I wasnt really in the market for beauty goods.
But I have been wanting a Cricut for a long time.
There are so many possibilities for creativity with that one machine.
It's been on my Amazon wish list for months. And I was seriously considering blowing the rest of my money on that.......when I checked good old Facebook and discovered my friend Rachel was selling hers!

the CRICUT , 3 cartridges , the mat and a cutting tool!
Lucky me!
Of course I've recently stumbled across a few more fabulous blogs, mostly on D.I.Y design as I have aspirations to "re-do" ( I use that term loosely) our "office/craft central".
It's totally not functional now.
Well that's not entirely true its functional but not in a way that's helping us.
So I have been thinking on ways to get that together in the next month or so.
More on that later.

I am sufficiently jazzed about my purchases and pleased as punch I didn't impulse buy anything I might later regret.
Now, the only question is - what will my first project be?
