Surprise gift and update on me

I never expected to be saying this (as a mostly digi-scrapper), but I got a Cricut! And it is the expression too! I was in shock when I opened it. It is one of those things I NEVER would have bought for myself, but my mom thought I would like it Smile

I watched the video to understand the basics, but I haven't tried it yet. I've never used one before, so it will be interesting.

As for me, I'm still pregnant, by God's grace. This pregnancy hasn't been easy between an ER visit for bleeding and awful morning sickness. I havn't touched my scrapping in over a month, I just feel awful day and night. I'm hoping the sickness will lift soon and I can get back to catching up with Andrea's scrapbooks! Anyway, sorry I haven't been around, but I will be again soon.

I'm sorry your pregnancy hasn't gone too smoothly - sending you sticky vibes (and no-morning-sickness vibes!). Congrats on the Cricut!

That is awesome you got a cricut! I'm so glad your bleeding turned out to be nothing to worry about! I'm sure that had to have been so scary after just having a miscarriage. :bighug:

you can do so much with the Expression. I mean, just the decorating options alone are amazing (cuts vinyl so nicely!). and you can make such neat cards with it. so even if you don't use it for scrapbooking, you can use it with so many more things.

I'm sorry to read that the pregnancy has been rough. fingers crossed for smoother sailing from here on out.

Congrats on your pregnancy! and on you CRICUT! You were smart to watch the video first, when I got mine, I didn't, I just did it, and then I went back and learned a ton from watching the video. Also www.mypinkstamper.com has some great tutorials on cricut basics.

Sorry to hear you are suffering from morning sickness. But the good news is, that probably means your baby is sticking well! Smile I am sure you want advice on how to cope with the morning sickness. Wink but here is what people told me to do, and I said that won't work but out of desperation I tried it, and it worked well. Eat often and small amounts. I ate crackers every hour on the hour. Wink Also sucking on hard candy, and Vit. B6. (that was recommended by my Dr.) I hope you feel better soon, and enjoy your new cricut! Smile

What fun Stephanie! I hope you feel well enough to use it now and then. I am so happy to hear all is well with the pregnancy girl. I will send up a prayer for continued success. Thanks for updating us!

I'm sorry that you are having a rough time with this pregnancy :(.

Congrats on the cricut. I bet you find lots of fun things to do with it even if you don't actually use it to scrap!
