Should I Buy a Cricut Explore Air 2 (or an EasyPress 2)?

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine.


See why a Cricut Explore Air 2 and an EasyPress 2 is worth the investment.  Check out what you can do with these machines and what kinds of projects you can make.
Have you been asking yourself if you should buy a Cricut Explore 2 or even an EasyPress 2? Then, if you have decided to buy one then where should you buy one? I asked the same questions and I am here to explain why you SHOULD buy these products and why. Also, explain some things about where you should buy them depending on what you are looking for.

First up, why should you buy it?
  1. It doesn't take up a lot of space so you don't need a huge crafting area. Gone are the days that you need cartridges for Cricut machines. Also, the EasyPress comes in lots of sizes. So you can get the size that you have space for.
  2. You can design/create your own designs. Nothing feels better than turning something inside your brain into reality. (Side note: There are plenty of ready to use designs as well.)
  3. It cuts so many things! (See a list below.)
  4. It writes beautifully for you, in case you are like me and dream of having beautiful lettering skills, but don't.
  5. It has a print then cut function. Gone are the days that you have to cut things out all the time! WHAT!?!
  6. It isn't loud. My family is a household full of people with sensitivity to sound.  So it being quite is necessary.
  7. It's easy to use and there are SO MANY resources to help you if you need to figure something out. There are tons of videos and tutorials.
  8. The EasyPress will simplify life for you and help you make your projects long lasting.

I have owned a Cricut machine for about 4 years now and love everything I can make with it. I don't consider myself a crafting genius, but I do like being creative and making my own things. I feel a sense of pride when I make things myself.

Check out the new products I received from Cricut as a partnership with them.  I am excited to bring new tutorials and new ideas for you to use in your own home.  Check out my unboxing video on IGTV.  Then leave a comment on what you have questions about and also what you want to see me make.

2020 Reading Challenge List for Adults

2020 Reading Challenge List for Adults
Do you love to read, but feel like you don't have enough time?  Do you only read books that fit under a certain genre, but wish you would branch out more?  Do you need book inspiration? 

If you answered yes to any of those questions then this 2020 Reading Challenge for Adults is a great option for you!  This reading challenge is designed to be versatile to YOUR needs.  It is to get you hitting your reading goals.  It will help you read different books than you normally read and/or read more books than you normally do. 

Do it with a friend.  The download that I have provided has 2 copies of the list.  So that is perfect for you to share with a friend.  Make it a fun gift idea and give your friend a copy of the list with a book or even a gift card to the nearest bookstore.  

Make reading a priority this year.  Reading has so many benefits.  Here are just a few I want to share with you so you can also make a reading a priority this year:
  • Reading helps increase concentration. 
  • Reading can make you more empathetic. 
  • Reading helps increase your sleep quality. 
  • Reading slows the progress of dementia and Alzheimer's disease. 
  • Reading helps lessen negative thoughts.
  • Reading helps your general knowledge. 
  • Reading helps you to relax. 
  • Reading helps expand your vocabulary. 
  • Reading helps improve your memory. 
  • Reading is FREE entertainment! 
So how should you use this challenge to help you reach your reading goals?  Like I said make it work for YOU.  If you feel like you need to read more then set a goal for how many books you want to read this year and use the list I provided to help you think of different books to read.  If you want to branch out and read different types of books then use the download to help you achieve that.  If you want to try and read all the categories on the list then great, but if that is too much for you to handle then set a goal that is reasonable to you.  

My goal this year is to read 36 books.  I plan on reading a self help, spiritual, or parenting book once a month.  Then I also plan to read both a nonfiction and fiction book each month.  I am so excited to read more.  In 2018 I read 46 books then in 2019 I read about 12.  I noticed a HUGE difference in my attitude.  So I decided to make it a goal again.  I hope you will join me.
