l did one of the Make .it now projects in the Design Space ! It was simple to customize the colors to a boyS layout and I finished a page while doing laundry! Hubby Was sick and I had the Machine right there with the T.V.! It is quiet enough to use in the same room!! Wowzer. The hardest part of Making this page was loosing the little yellow star. I searched for 15 minutes for that silly third star and alas- the dog must have it. So I reloaded the project and pressed next mat until I got to the stars. I used the extras to take up the space until a photo is added. Seems my loss- is my gain:) That is all for now. Laters !

This is my very first project with my Newest Cricut the EXPLORE, I am impressed with how quiet it is, The machine Cut out the White Core from DCWV paper with ease. I tried out the pen feature and stumbled a bit. d had some trouble with getting it to show the pen tips blade tip on the mat preview at once. I got it figured out after several attempts Then my biggest problem Was funding the layers I took off the mats! I cut the Diaper for the Monkey to Look like it w as so passed to be on him. For a short bit the blue layer and the pen top were lost under the Cnicut LID:) I then had to soak my glue applicator tip in accetone cUZ silly me took i to a crop & did not clean 'it, Ever done that before? unfortunately I have done that a lot. Guess that is why I know how to Set the glue out . Well, enough r ambling, but I should tell you- I deleted the flowers on the tree and doubled the leaves. Copics added some dimension &I used ATG & ART INSTITUTE GCUE, it has been my favorite goto glue for some time now; the metal tip is AMAZING. LATERS.

l Love to can and my family loves boiled peanuts. As any boiled peanut consumer knows- they take a while to make correctly. I have seen them in stores SO I know that canning them is possible. Though I searched forever I could not find a recipe for canning peanuts. This works- wonders. I just can them as if I were Canning beef. I process them for l hr and 45 min, and only after boiling them until they just begin to accept the salt. I have found that wide mouth jars Are easier to remove the nuts but I have more jars that do not seal. so now I stick to regular mouth & only quart size jars. They are wonderful to Make up in the colder Nov.Months and then come game time you just pop an opened jar in the Microwave and BAM! Instant HOT Boiled peanuts:)
