Cricut Class and CTMH Team Meeting

It's been a fun filled weekend full of Close To My Heart!  Friday night I held my first Cricut Class and we had a blast!!  It was a crazy group of ladies that kept me on my toes.  Lots of laughter and fun as we explored the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge!



Here's a little outline of what we covered:
  • Getting to know the machine (speed, pressure, size...oh my!)
  • All about mattes (care, refreshing, cleaning)
  • Getting to know Art Philosophy Cartridge
  • Using the creative features buttons (fit to length, center point, auto-fill...)
  • And then we created a couple of little projects
Today (Saturday) I went on a little mini road trip with my upline (Bren Yule).


 We drove up to Cindy Baker's team meeting. We were a little surprised when traffic backed up and we saw a convoy of military vehicles along the side of the road.  Not sure why they were hanging out along the freeway, but it felt a little strange driving through a "military zone."



Cindy's meeting was great!  We went over a few business items, ate a wonderful potluck lunch and then Debbie and Cindy shared a fun project.



My favorite part of the meeting was when we went around the room and we each shared a project or tip.  I loved seeing the amazing things everyone created.  I even got to meet Mandy Leahy!  It was nice to be able to share some techy/video tips with a fellow blogger.

Now I have a ton of ideas swirling around in my head.  I just have to figure out how to prioritize them and get them done before the creative inspiration leaves me.

I hope I can make your next class at Gail's monthly workshop. I still have to find day care. If not, I hope you make a video of your class.
