New Beginnings Squared

I couldn't have asked for more today; but I got it!  Not only did I log onto my blog at midnight this morning to see my awesome new header and background created by my dear friend Sarah Beeman; but I also came home to find my other new beginning...

...the Cricut Explore!  I can't wait to share my journey with you and hopefully make some cool creations with this new cutting and design system.  I am a big Cricut fan and have been using one of their machines since they came out in 2010.  First, I had the original bug, then I bought the Cricut Expression coupled with a Gypsy, and now I've finally upgraded to the Cricut Explore.

I'm working on a huge grant for work, so I haven't even opened the box.  But when I do, I'll share the experience, give my honest opinion, and hopefully inspire you to make some paper perfection!

New + Happy ! (guest post)

Hello all you happy viewers of Traci Spencer's magical blog! I am Sarah Beeman, the gal who recently redesigned this blog guest posting. Traci- you are such a fantastic blessing to anyone you interact with in this world, and I wish you the best with your scrapbooking, creating, and life in general. If anyone knows Traci, you would know she is very spectacularly similar to the meaning of a hummingbird, which is why I chose to run with that when I heard she loved them. 

A hummingbird symbolizes the enjoyment of life; the light of being. A hummingbird can accomplish great feats no matter the situation, and always encourages other to see the positive side of the struggle. They believe life is rich, and what I wish for Traci is a life full of richness- the best and most meaningful richness this earth can provide. :) 

Peace & love, Sarah Marie

Take it away, Traci!
