Fun Stuff!

So, I have been wondering for awhile if I could cut wood pieces out with my cricut. Well, being the google queen that I am, I went online and found that absolutely it can be done! It recommended Balsa wood.

Last night I went to AC Moore to try and get ideas for my carousel diaper cake, and in the midst of picking out beads and putting them back, I remembered the Balsa. Went searching and Voila - they had it. Needless to say my craft trip did a 360 and I was on to an entirely different project. I cut out a heart with wings, and then got the idea of making my pic train out of wood. I had sooo much fun! But, now I'm bummed because I am out of wood lol.

I did notice that the wood I bought was a tad too thin. It breaks pretty easily...heck I cut the stuff with a pair of scissors. So, next time I buy it, I will definitely have to make sure it is a little thicker.

Now all I need to do is learn to sew and I am on my way to being a well rounded crafty lady!
