It’s Starting to Feel A Lot Like…

HALLOWEEN… ?

Oh, look a new theme! I’m honestly surprised I had the motivation to craft such a thing of beauty given my lack of motivation but, I did it! Sometimes, I amaze myself, okay I always amaze myself but that’s beside the point. ;) With that in mind, it’s likely this theme will be up for the next several months. I make no promises that I’ll have the creativity to switch this layout up in month and a half’s time but, we shall see.

There hasn’t been too much going on that’s worth blogging about but I’m caught up on school (finally) and right now doing some review before I go in and take my exam. This year has been difficult and stressful so I haven’t been my usual, on the ball self. I’m hoping that will change as we get nearer to the end of the year but time will tell.

After a lot of begrudging and fighting, I have finally given in and joined the Planner bandwagon. Unfortunately, I have a planner that I’m not 100% happy with but that should be changing in the next few weeks and I am so excited! In the meantime, I’m trying to get a grasp of using my Silhouette and making stickers. Once, I have that down back, I hope to graduate to wash strips and then hopefully more in-depth things like clothing, but we will see. All of these aspirations are time dependent which I am sorely lacking.

Right now we are in the midst of finishing up some remodeling in the house. We have finally decided on what we want to do in terms of a pantry in the kitchen and are working to get that installed. Once we’re done with that, we’re going to put tile into the family room and hallway and then after that focus on getting the bar built out in the backyard and putting in sod. As you can see we have a lot on our plates but it’s exciting to feel comfortable enough to WANT to put this much work into our home. This was NEVER the case with our old house so it’s definitely a nice change and it has made a difference in our relationship as well.

Speaking of relationships, Alecia is come out to visit for Thanksgiving and I am super excited. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday followed by Halloween so I can’t wait. I still need to work on a menu to figure out what we’ll be serving but we have a little time for that so I’m not too worried.

Well, I’m off to see to my duties on Vicarious which presently has open membership with Administrator approval, so if you’ve been dying to join or just interested in checking it out, now is the time.

Silhouette Unboxing

Yes, yes, you read that right. Ang got off her lazy ass and actually made a video. It’s pretty fucking amazing but then again I’m pretty awesome so I don’t know why you’d be so surprised.

I have been wanting a Silhouette or Cricut for years but I really could not justify the cost, however after discussing it with R and explaining my rationale behind the purchase, he agreed that it would be wise if we had one, so I bought one two days ago. I still have yet to use it, I’m trying to find vectors I like, but I am so excited! Once I get the hang of it and try out some of the nifty features, you can definitely expect a review.

Do you have a silhouette, cricut, or similar machine? What do you use it for and how do you like yours? If you don’t have one, is it something that you’d eventually like to purchase?
