New Toy for Big Girl!

Yesterday I received a mail notice that I got to collect two items from the post office. And I got a special note that one of them is a BIG box. I was so excited when I saw the words "BIG BOX" but sadly the notice came late, the post office is closed :( 

TODAY after my work, I rushed to the post office to collect the items. Guess what... my Sillhouette CAMEO has arrived ... woots!! I bought it at Studio Calico and it was on free shipping because I made a purchase above USD99. It took 13 days to reach me and that was darn fast if you ask me!

Well, it took me a while to decide but after seeing all the craze at Instagram, I couldn't resist it anymore. There are tons of enabler in Instagram I tell ya ... lol.

... and also a box of October Afternoon Farmhouse collection. It was indeed  "Happy Mail" day for me!! 

The minute I reached home, I opened the box and started to play with my new toy...
Here's the first cut... it was so pretty!! I didn't want it to stop so I continued...

I went to the Silhouette online store to get more... it was a pure paradise in that store!! Silhouette has a sale couple days back and took the plunge to subscribe to the online store. I paid for the basic sub $7.50/month for the next 12 months for a $25 store credit. Amazing. Actual cost was $9.99 but it was on 25% off. It was a good deal for sure!!  

Here's the result of all the lovelies I cut!! Beautiful eh?!

Today is also art day for my students in my class. This week we learnt about "My Family" and I got them to do thumb printing drawings. Oh boy... I have a bunch of creative students!

Cute lil hands! Part of my Feb-Photo-A-Day. Are you doing it too?
Here are the samples why they rock their drawings!! So adorable and so creative!! I love them all :)
Love them to bits... definitely put a smile on my face.

It has been an awesome day for me and time to cut more!! It's so addictive!
Will be back soon lovelies...

Xoxo Jessy

What a happy mail day for you, indeed! I KNOW you are going to enjoy all your new goodies, and I know you are going to rock the new Silhouette cuts! :) And how fun your students artwork is! Love the photo of all their thumbs together. I have a warm spot in my heart for thumbprint art. When my kiddos were little, we used to do it all the time. I even purchased a book filled with inspiration. How this makes me smile.
