My new cartridge!

Recently, Provo Craft launched four new Cricut cartridges.  (You can view them HERE.)  Three of the four cartridges will be available at all major craft stores, online scrapbook stores, and even soon enough on eBay.  One cartridge, however, is exculsive to HSN (Home Shopping Network).  Well, of course, the one cartridge of the four that I absolutely LOVED was the one exclusive to HSN.  I had never ordered anything from HSN, but last week I ordered the "Straight From the Nest" cartridge.  It was an easy purchase and arrived very quickly.  I got it yesterday and made a couple of cards with it.  Here they are....let me know what you think!  :0)

I heart girly things!

I don't know if I've mentioned my love of second hand shopping.  It was inbred in me.  For as long as I can remember, my parents have shopped at thrift stores - Goodwill, Salvation Army, St. Vincent Depaul, Value Village, etc.  At some point in our family history, these second hand stores were given the name "holes".  Yesterday I took my children to the local Goodwill "hole" and here is what I found.  It was 99 cents and super cute & girly.  The second I saw it, I imagined it sitting on my craft table full of ribbon.  Isn't it cute?

It has an Estee Lauder stamp on the bottom inside, so I'm guessing it was a gift with purchase at some point for their makeup or perfume line.  I just love it!  I thought about spray painting it, but I think with all of the pretty ribbon inside, I will leave it just as it is.  :0)
