Gypsy in the House!!!

Yay!!!  This is so exciting and so overwhelming at the same time!!!  The gypsy that I won came in the mail on Saturday!!  I was able to update it today but still can't figure out how to link it with my Imagine...  I think we're supposed to wait anyway...  I can't wait until I can make some cuts and figure it out!!!

I made this really quick before leaving for my retreat on Friday...  It was a working retreat and I needed a notebook so I prettied up a composition notebook before I left!!  Pretty quick and awesome!!!

Our retreat was at Western Hills Lodge so I was able to swing through Tulsa on my way there...  Michaels, Joann, Starbucks, Cokesbury, Girl Scout Store and Loops!!  What a trip!!  If I'm making the drive, might as well make it count, right??  I wanted to see the Imagine endcap at Michaels...  They had a few things out but some were still being unloaded!  Joann had some awesome Girl Scout paper and embellies!!  I'm thinking Christmas present for my new Daisy!!  Also, the reason for going to the Girl Scout store...

And Loops...  Oh how I love to go to the yarn store!!  I was hoping to have enough time to sit and knit at the store but it didn't happen!!  I did swing in there really quick and picked up some Chibi needles... I was planning to finish my socks there but I finished them last night while watching 'Up in the Air' with my hubby!!  Yay!!

The sky was overcast but it was so beautiful there!!  It rained pretty hard on Saturday for a little while! 
I love sunset!!

Until next time...
Have a great week!!

Design Team Submissions

Hello everyone!!!  It's super late here but I wanted to post my projects for the design teams that I'm applying for...  I am absolutely loving the Cricut Imagine!!!  The learning process is still going strong and I am so thankful for all the blogs out there that talk about the Imagine!!!  Without them I would be lost!!! 

The two design teams that I am applying for are...  Creative Critterz Imaginations and Sweet Sassy Diva.  I have no other design team experience and I am a Cricut newbie with the Imagine being the first Cricut machine that I have ever owned!!!

Here are my latest finished projects using the Imagine...  Thanks for looking and ENJOY!!!

From the Better Together Art Cartridge...  A thank you card...  This is my favorite card so far.  Every time I make a new card it becomes my favorite!!  I used 3D squares behind the flower and behind the border of the sentiment...  I added texture to the flower using my Fiskars plates from several years ago! 

From the Imagine More Art Cartridge...  Spread your wings wall hanging...  It originally was a Christmas decoration tray but it needed a coat of paint and a new life!!  I used a turquoise card stock from my paper stash but everything else was printed on the Imagine.

From the stock images and the Imagine More Art cartridge...  Fall pumpkins...  Do you think it's missing something???  I'm still searching for the perfect stamp for the sentiment!!!  I really wanted to show this card to you all because the only image that I used from the cartridge were the borders at the bottom...  The pumpkins and squares behind them are the stock images that come with the Imagine.

Thanks for stopping by and please come back!!
Have a great weekend!!!

Excitement at 3am!!!

Hello!!  This week is just flying by!!  I started this post yesterday and was going to finish it up by inserting pictures of my latest projects!!  But...  My camera charger has gone missing!!  I must find it before our family reunion this weekend!!!  Aaaahhh!!!

Since I can't post pictures of my latest finished projects...  This is my card tree!!  A few Pinecone Press Kit cards...  I love kits!!!  I will post more pictures of my finished projects hopefully tomorrow when I find my charger!!

Projects that I want to do this week...
     Cricut Circle Weekly Challenge
     Cricut Circle Monthly Challenge
     Tags for Christmas ornaments
     Finish knitting my socks
     Start knitting another baby hat
     Make more cards
There are a couple of other challenges that I want to participate in but haven't done it yet...  I am really enjoying seeing what other people create!!!  Such great inspiration!!  Also, I'm debating on whether or not to apply to be on a design team...  It's a brand new blog for the Cricut Imagine...  Hmmmm....  We'll see!!

The excitement at 3am was...

I won a GYPSY!!  Oh my goodness!!  I was up late checking in on the blogs that I follow...  Well...  The other day, I entered a contest to win a Gypsy through the new Cricut Circle Blog design team!  Each DT member had two to give away!!  The drawing was held on SATURDAY!!  Provo Craft surprized everyone with a third Gypsy to give away.  I was lucky number 3 at Nancy's blog, The Paper Orchard.  Still shocked and amazed that I actually will have a Gypsy in my hands soon!!  I will definitely be stalking the mail!!!  I have no idea how to use it but I will have fun learning how!!

Have fun this week!!!!

Hello and welcome to the new Loksi & Co. blog!!  This is where I will be sharing my crafty creations with you!  I love to learn new things! I love to create!  My to-create list is growing rapidly and I can usually sneak in some time to make things throughout the day...  Especially when the little one is napping.  I am a SAHM to two girls, the oldest will be six years old tomorrow and the baby is 19 months old.  Time flies when your having fun!!!

I'll be posting about several different crafty creations!!  I am the proud new owner of a Cricut Imagine!  Look for posts about my learning process since this is my first Cricut machine!!  I also sew, knit, spin yarn, crochet, bead, weave on my inkle loom, weave baskets, embroider and make scrapbook projects.  I have scrapbook albums but haven't made anything to fill them!!

Thanks for stopping by and come back!!
