The topic: There’ve been some great photo opportunities



This past week. First up, the sunset from last Friday. There's a little airport on the other side of the hill, which is why I have photographs with planes in them. (Clicking on a picture will take you to a bigger photo in my family album; clicking on that picture will open a larger photo.)



Then, yesterday morning, the parrots stopped by, landing in our Liquid Amber tree.






Then tonight, there was another great sunset. This time I could look at the sun and not be blinded!

The topic: Fun with the Cameo


With my original Silhouette machine, I had purchased a separate piece to use for pens, so the machine would write instead of cut. I tried using that with the new machine and while it should have worked, I got frustrated with it and just didn't use it (I'm thinking it was because the pens I had were too fat or something). I did the research and found a different pen holder and have had great success with it. Here is a video (I just found on my computer this morning) that I took back in 2013 showing it in action.


If you're interested in getting one for your cutting machine (Susan makes them not just for Silhouettes, but other cutters) check out Hot Paws Creations
