I have a confession...

...I've not been using my Cricut.

**SHOCK..HORROR..NEVER** I can hear your amazed cries echoing through cyberspace.

Let me explain...

My craftroom hasn't been accessable for some time as it has become a dumping ground for stuff that should be up in the loft. As a result, I do most of my crafting at the desk in the study or on my lap in the lounge. This means I only have limited space available for my crafting equipment.

My BigShot is out and sits on the floor next to the printer. My BIA sits by the desk in its pretty little bag but with the PC, printer, modem and a fax on the desk there is no room to leave my Cricut set up.

As with most things that are kept in their boxes it tends to be 'out of sight, out of mind'.

In an effort to rectify this, I have booked myself onto a lesson at Pinnacle Crafts with Andy so that I can learn more of the functions that my little bug can do and hopefully this will encourage me to either get it out of the box more often or try and re-arrange the study. Should be interesting...........................

I think we can all relate to that. For me, my 'out of sight, out of mind' thing is the 20 bottles of alcohol inks that I bought a few months ago but not figured out what I was going to do with them. Answers on a postcard please!

OOOOOO I have plans to go through some of stuff this weekend, to "rediscover" what I have hidden away!

I am actually kinda looking forward to it all!

I love my little bug - it's my fav, but not used as much as it should be. My office us being used for storage at moment so it's sooooo hard to scarp there, so I feel your pain!

Go Toni! You can do it! :)

know the feeling - great tools and because of too much stash no place to craft!! I go to my neighbours once week as she no longer works and seems to have got the time to organise a craft space for both of us.

I know the feeling! My CR has been sitting around neglected for months too, although I don't have the excuse that I don't have room for it or it's hidden away! Good luck with the course.
