OH, the Silhouette Machine.
If you go to craft stores ever or look at any craft blogs- you've heard of this amazing Silhouette machine. It can do just about everything under the sun. You can make stencils, etch designs on glass, make paper crafts, create vinyl cut-outs, anything! It connects right to your computer and comes with a software to help you make all your creations. It also takes whatever font is on your computer, too. The possibilities are endless. Here are just a few things I found on their website and blog that have been made with it!
And the list goes on. Holy cow. I'm sure you're thinking. "Ok, cool, but for what price?" And you'd be right- they're expensive. That's the reason I don't have one. I just got an awesome (and also expensive) sewing machine and cannot justify buying one of these bad boys (especially when I haven't even "mastered" sewing yet!)
BUT since I am the ultimate craft blog stalker, I have found several blogs that are giving them away!!! Be like me and click on the links below and follow the directions on each blog to enter to win one! It comes with lots of cool stuff, too. OR a lot of these lovely ladies are also giving you a promo code that you can use to just go ahead and buy one at a discounted price.
I hope you and I both win one. :)
ALSO, I promised a necklace tutorial and I am working on it, however, I don't believe it's gonna happen today. This apartment's gotta get cleaned, unit and lesson plans need to be finished, and laundry needs to be put away. If only MLK day was a 2 day holiday. :) Check back soon, though!
