Look What Arrived!!!!

After a long week working on the musical at work (which went wonderfully) I came home last night very late,very tired and very sick - sore throat and head cold! BUT, I also came home to this box:
What is it?  Well, I bought the Silhouette Cameo and it has arrived.
Despite being all stuffed up and a little hazy from lack of sleep and the busy week, you know I had to take it out and play with it just a little bit.

Getting it all set-up was super easy and you can not imagine how light the machine is until you hold it yourself. I was a little worried about where the cord spots were located, but in the end the cord to my computer hangs right in front without getting in the way.
I had to try it out and the first thing I did was cut a font right off my computer: My favorite font, Tingle Institute, which I got from, Kevin and Amanda.com. I spelled out my full name inside of a square I had already placed on the mat, as well as the simple flower design that comes with the machine and....
I am so so so excited to be able to cut fonts off my computer this way and I have a feeling I will find alot of others things to love about my new toy!!  I am not getting rid of Cricuts (way to much invested), but it is exciting to have the Cameo on my table and I am excited to learn more slowly.

Happy Weekend to all!
