In the Beginning Was My Cricut...

Hello, world.  This blog is my chronicle of papercrafting with my Cricut Expression -- brand new to this beginner for my 30th birthday!

I'm just getting started, so I've set a few goals:
  • Learn the functions of my Cricut by creating something new and sharing it at least once per week.
  • Improve my papercrafting skills by participating in Cricut challenges (once I gain a little more experience).
  • Use my Cricut for ongoing projects -- especially my son's scrapbook that I'm a year behind on!

But I'm not the only one who loves my Cricut -- my two-year-old son is fascinated by all its chirps and buttons.  I usually only work with it once he's in bed; that's why I've named my blog Cricut After Dark.  (It was shorter than Cricut After Dark and When My Toddler Is Transfixed by Thomas the Tank Engine DVDs.)

I'm eager to go -- let's get started!
