Hello my birdie watchers....
First off.. 4 eggs were laid 3 weeks ago and only 2 survived....SAD NEWS, I know!! The 3rd egg hatched but theres no birdie...I don't know what happened and the 4th egg is still in the nest unhatched. Anyway...heres an update on my two grandbirdies..they are 8 days old since hatching LOL!! they are still fuzzy and they have their eyes open now and BOY! can they stretch their heads up now when Momma comes to feed.  It looks so cute when they are being feed, you can see two bobble heads above the nest...ROTFLOL!!!

I know its hard to see - the nest is brown and so are the birdies..

YES!! You read it right!! I've tried everything I could find to try and cut material with the cricut and nothing worked for my machine. Every machine is different...I accepted that....I was SUPER DUPER EXCITED when "Lovethatbug" posted a tutorial on how she cut material and IT WORKED!!! follow her tutorial and see if it'll work for you... heres the link 

Heres some Easter things I cut:
eggs-Doodlecharms cart @ 4"
cracked egg-MS Seasonal cake cart @  3.67"
chick - MS Seasonal cart @  1.98"
bunnies - MS Seasonal cart @ 2"

Aren't those bunnies adorable!!!
OK OK, I did this for my Mom..She likes to quilt and she wanted to make an Easter banner, so I cut everything out for her and she decorated the eggs with her embroidrey machine and sewed everything on.
Heres the banner she made.

WARNING!!!! I have to SHARE my cricut now....My Mom is looking thru my booklets for "patterns" for other holidays....ROTFLOL!!! heck I might even get back into appliqueing...this was REALLY FUN!!


OH DEAR!! Easter is upon us and I'm scrambleing to get my Easter things done. Whats holding me up?? you may ask....
A birds nest, ROTFLOL!! yes, a nest...a week ago last Monday a finch started building a nest and today theres an egg...I'm SUPER EXCITED!!! I have a screened in patio and this is what I see...
