I love my Cricut Expression and all of the cute designs that come with the cartridges.  I have to admit though, sometimes it can get overwhelming trying to do all of the paper-piecing designs.  Loading and unloading the different papers and trying to coordinate all of them can get frustrating.  That’s why I was super […]

How to Cut Polymer Clay with the Cricut

August 12, 2011


A while ago my pal Lisa Pavelka was showing off her fabulous Pardo Jewellry Clay by Viva Decor at CHA Winter 2011- it’s so flexible after baking, you can actually use a paper punch to cut it! So I got to thinking- why not cut it with a Cricut? I played around a bit, and […]

Lately, I have been the queen of the last minute. And this weekend I injured my back, which has put me even more behind- no so good for Christmas week productivity! However, even setbacks can boost your creativity because you have to do the best you can with what you’ve got…. and so, here are […]

Craft Product Review: Cricut Cake, Part One

July 5, 2010


Well… after much debate, I finally plunked down my cash for a CricutCake machine. If you remember, I had attended CHA in January, and was supposed to receive one from Provocraft for free. (!!!)

June 30, 2010


Which is to say, I joined the Cricut Circle. What is that, you say? Well, it’s a new club- supposedly exclusive- that will offer benefits such as free cartridges, invites to swarms and galas, chances to get sneak peeks and before-market access, and a spiffy charm bracelet. (Yeah, I know, right?) The thing is, I’m […]

I love, love, LOVE me some vinyl! And I really love the Cricut Vinyl by Provocraft. I sat and played with it for a whole afternoon- cutting with a punch, with the Slice, with the Cricut Expression, even running it through the Cuttlebug to emboss it. Totally awesome. Here are some pics that I took […]

January 29, 2010


If you are a die-hard Cricut fan, (or a cake decorator), buckle your seat belt- the Cricut Cake is here! (Well, almost- it’ll drop in late April.)

Thea at the Roadshow

It’s been a long, long week at the Costco Roadshow in Strongsville, OH. In case you missed the tweets, I was part of the Costco Grand Opening and spent a week on-location demonstrating the Cricut Expressions machine (and accessories) for ProvoCraft. (That’s a pic of the booth I took with my phone, and that’s my […]

My Gypsy Has Arrived!!

October 12, 2009


I was soooo sad when I hear that some of my crafty co-horts had received their Gypsies from ProvoCraft, and yet I was still Gypsy-less. However this AM, bright and early, I got a box on my doorstep! Here’s a little video of me unboxing my newest, coolest toy!
