Silhouette Cameo Electronic Cutting Tool

    I love mine!! It is wonderful for Crafting, Designing and Cutting.

    What I especially like is creating my own images to cut out.

    For example, I love gingerbread boys and girls . . . and I wanted to dress them up — overalls and an apron . . . I had a stamp and a punch for the gingerbread kids, but I needed to design my overalls and the apron. I was able to design it, cut it out and make adjustments as necessary to fit on my gingerbread punch outs.

    Plus, I could have had the Cameo cut out my gingerbread kids.

    I find the Silhouette Cameo easy to use and to create some truly fun projects. I can make templates for boxes and bags and the Cameo will cut them out for me. All I need to do is decorate them and assemble them.

    This is truly a time saver for me when I have dozens of cards or boxes to make at one time.

    It is a “must have” in every craft room!

    sixthreezero EVRYjourney Women’s 26-Inch Step-Through Hybrid Cruiser Bicycle

    Riding a bike is great exercise . . . and fun!

    This sixthreezero EVRYjourney Women’s Hybrid Cruiser Bicycle is made for comfort . . . and I’m all about comfort when it comes to riding a bike.

    I like making short trips to the store for a few items. Maybe to meet friends for coffee . . . and just to get out and take some pictures.

    I like being able to have a comfortable seat and the handlebars where I can sit up and not hunched over. It may not be stylish like for racing, but I’m not racing . . . I’m going for an enjoyable ride around town and picking up a few items or going out to take pictures.

    I get some exercise and have an enjoyable ride. I have a rack if I purchase something. I can also carry my camera, a sandwich and water. Yes, I can wear a backpack, but sometimes I like the freedom of not having anything strapped to me.

    I’m all for comfort and this bike delivers!!

    Readers Paradise — 1000 Piece Jigsaw Puzzle

    White Mountain Puzzles has this excellent 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle — Readers Paradise for you and your family to enjoy.

    During all times of the year is the right time to set out a jigsaw puzzle for the whole family to enjoy.

    White Mountain Puzzles features oversized 100% recycled blue chipboard pieces. The pieces are large and thick which makes them easy to pick up. This 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle measures 24″ x 30″ when completed.

    I was drawn to Readers Paradise because I loved the detail and could spend hours exploring such a unique shop. It would be the type of place I would feel comfortable finding a cozy spot to read. 

    This is a definite “must have” for the book lovers in your family.

    Yet there are a few issues . . . the image is not entirely in focus, some pieces have been bent and some have experienced missing pieces. Some have had issues with the interlocking pieces fitting too snugly together.

    I suppose it is all a matter of personal preference . . . but since this is the inside of a bookstore, one would expect the shelves and the books to be clear and crisp . . . Compared with other White Mountain puzzles, this one doesn’t seem to have the quality one would expect.

    So, be sure to read the reviews and decide for yourself whether Readers Paradise is the right jigsaw puzzle for you.
