The Crazy Cricut Lady – About Me

The Crazy Cricut Lady herself

Hi there. I thought I’d tell you a little about myself and my journey to Cricut Design Space.

I am a stay at home disabled mom and I have a beautiful 14 year old daughter named Cordelia. She looks more like 22 which keeps me up nights. But she is the best thing that ever happened to me.

My Inspiration and Finding Cricut Design Space

I started working with my cricut about 12 years ago after I had my first stroke. Back then I was still working but couldn’t do cross stitch anymore because I had lost that fine motor control in my hands. There had to be another outlet for my creativity. So I started scrap booking.

It was disgusting how much stickers and embellishments cost and they were never the right size or color and knew there had to be a better way. Then I found my cricut expression. It was used and came with a couple cartridges but it was heaven. I could finally design and cut my own stuff.

Then came Cricut Design Space. All my cartridges were now on my computer. By now I had almost 30 cartridges. Next I just had to upgrade my machine! OK I didn’t have to, I just wanted to. I followed all the instruction I could find and learned as fast as I could. Then I found Jennifer Maker’s site and inspiration arrived.

Now I want to share all I have learned and all I made with you, like my hero Jennifer Maker does. Welcome to my site and I would love to hear from you with opinions and comments, so drop me a note and say HI.

My tutorials are here. And my downloads are here. And they are both free to use if you sign up for my mail list. Don’t worry its free and I won’t bug you with spam.

Life Changes

Later, I had my 2nd and 3rd stroke and my heart attack. Well that was the end of my career! So I started making cards and crafts and more scrapbooks almost full time. I have never been happier. And I wanted to share it.

Through all this I had 2 divorces and lots of problems but my crafting always made me feel better. I thank my crafts and my cricut for keeping me sane and for giving me a reason to go on fighting.

So sign up for my list below and join me in this crazy trip to learning all you can about Design space and crafting. My social media links are there too.
