Buying New Crafting Tools

I could buy new craft supplies and tools every day.  My newest want is a Silhouette Cameo.  I have a feeling that I will end up buying a Silhouette portrait, which is just a smaller version of the cameo.  Unfortunately a Cameo is just not in  my budget right now.  The nice thing is that I have beard that I can make most things on the Portrait that I could on the Cameo, just not things that are as large as things that I could make on the cameo

I can only just begin to imagine the things that I could make with a cameo or a portrait.  I love that it is not limited to paper crafting or fabric crafting or just one medium.  I could make stencils for painting or even glass etching.  I could cut out fabric for appliqué.  I could make paper templates for english paper piecing.  I could make paper cut outs for scrapbooking or card making.  I could even make vinyl decals for my walls.  There are just so many possibilities!

I recently found out that Ginger Snap Crafts, over at, is doing a give away for the Cameo machine.  I figured I would try to enter and see if I could potentially win one.  How awesome would it be to win a Cameo.  I could then use the money I planned to spend on the Portrait buying supplies for the Cameo.  I am really excited about this.  Because of this give away, I found a new creative blog to read!  I love reading blogs and now I have another one to get inspired by!

Go over to and take a look and see what creative projects she has as well as check out the give away!
