Learned Something New Today

Happy Valentine's Day!

I'm not particularly fond of this "holiday". I make sure I tell my husband every year, "Please do not spend any money on flowers." Don't get me wrong, I love them. I just don't love to spend money on them. They are just going to die anyway. If you are going to buy me something, I want it to be practical, something I will use, not watch die. :) Take the Silhouette Cameo for example. I would love to get one of these for Valentine's Day. My husband has heard me talking about it, but he wouldn't have a clue as to where to buy it. I did hint (not so subtly) that I would like a Kindle Fire since we finally have wireless Internet. I already own a Kindle, but I can't wait to get the Fire. This probably won't happen today either, so I'll keep it on my wish list for future holidays. Mother's Day is not that far away ;)

Speaking of buying the Cameo...Are you planning on buying, or do you already own, a Silhouette Cameo? I am planning on buying it for myself in the very near future. Here's what I learned today. Actually, two things. First, you can buy the Silhouette Cameo on Amazon with vinyl for $269. Second, Silhouette gives away a weekly design. Even if you don't already have the Silhouette, you can download the program to your computer and start getting these free designs. So this way you will have a larger library once you actually get your machine. I'm sooooo excited! I've been seeing the free designs, but didn't think I could get them until I had the Cameo.

I have a couple of projects I'm working on. Hopefully, I can get them finished and show you what I've been up to very soon!


  1. I can't stand Valentine's Day. I did try to get my son to get me some M&M's....and he IS thinking of getting me a Kindle for my birthday....
