It is my hope that I can help to inspire your creativity and encourage your to try something new. I am always searching for new ways to express my creativity and imagination. Cards, invitations and 3D objects tend to be my focus, however I dabble in other media including acrylics, watercolours, sewing, custom picture framing and jewelry making to name a few.

If you have an idea of request for a .cut file in an unconventional way I would love to hear all about it! Constructive feedback is always appreciated.

On occasion I will offer Cricut Design Studio .cut files for free download. Please note that all files are my personal property and may not be used for retail or resale purposes. My files are being shared only for your personal use. You may not acquire my files for financial gain.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

3D Christmas Village & Trees
created entirely from cardstock and my Cricut Expression.
I have to admit that 2009 has been a year of great change in my life. I have been working really hard this year live healthier and I had bariatric surgery in October. I have lost 60 pounds as of this week, 41 of which has been since surgery. It is a big change, but an exciting one and I cannot wait to see what 2010 brings. There were a lot of other changes in 2009 too. My family and I worked very hard at getting the landscaping completed in my backyard. Staining the fence, planting perrenials, laying bricks, and painting the house made a huge change to my yard. The house is barely recognizable and I am so grateful for all of my family and friends who made it all possible.

I have to say that owning a Cricut Expression has made a real change in my life too. I was able to create wedding invitations and save the dates that turned out amazing and wouldn't have been possible without a Cricut. Being part of the Custom Crops Design Team has also been a wonderful experience. Though I may not have been as prolific as I would have liked, being a part of the team and knowing that many other people enjoy using my .cut files gives me a great sense of pride. I am looking forward to pushing the limits of my Cricut to see what I can create in 2010. I just finished creating a Christmas Village, complete with a church, trees and stores...all in 3D. The Village .cut files are available at http://www.customcrops.com/. The picture of the village is at the top of this post.

My back may still be the one thing that keeps me from doing many things, but with my family and friends I have been able to make some long lasting changes to me and my home.

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and all the best in 2010.
