Why should I buy a Cricut Maker
One of the questions I get asked the most is, why should I buy a Cricut Maker?
Y’all. I LOVE MY MAKER! I was lucky enough to get one of the first Makers and I have used it weekly since I got it. It is literally the workhorse of my craft room!
With more advanced tools, Cricut Maker gives you the ability to make nearly any DIY project you can imagine, from art and home decor, jewelry, iron-on, vinyl, paper projects, and so much more. The Maker has the tools to cut hundreds of materials quickly and accurately, from delicate paper and fabric to the tough stuff like matboard, and more. Use the Rotary Blade to cut fabric for a sewing project — without backing material. Then, switch to Knife Blade and cut thicker materials for added dimension and depth. Or, quickly switch between scoring, engraving, debossing, and other decorative effects with a variety of specialty tips. With one of the most unique cutting abilities available and a library of design ideas, the Maker delivers professional-level cutting at a fraction of the cost.

I could likely be a thousandaire if I sold these for $1 each, LOL! Seriously, I get so many emails asking me to make and sell this awesome Cactus Cupcake Stand.
I love being able to alter a Design Space Image to create a 3D project with Chipboard. This project took just under an hour to cut, and a few hours for the paint to dry, but the end result was absolutely worth it!

The Rotary Blade on the Maker cut through Cricut Felt like butter and was mesmerizing to watch.

Driftwood Sailboat DIY
Hands down this is my favorite DIY ever. I used driftwood we found along the beach in New England on vacation to make these sail boats. I was inspired by a similar project I saw years ago, but these are so much better because I know where the wood came from!
