Yeah, this is me!
A little more about me:
I blog about my beloved Cricut machines, FOOD, corgis and, of course, my wonderful 13 year old son–affectionately known as MO online–who is on the Autism Spectrum.
I am a Boston native (Shout out to Somerville!), but I was raised here on the North Shore of Boston. After a few years away, I was drawn back to Peabody and I own a beautiful old home in the Emerson Park section. MO and I have always lived with corgis. Maybe you’ve seen us around town with Ted E. Bear? He’s super cute!
After many years in the corporate world, I decided to stay home and raise MO. While raising a child with Autism is tough work, I do also find time to take care of my home and do lots of crafty things.
Back in 2012, I was introduced to these amazing machines called a Cricut. When I couldn’t find help on how to use it, I decided to create my own helping groups on Facebook. Today I am the founder of four Facebook Groups called “Cricut Newbies & Pros”. In 2014, I was invited to join the Cricut Product Expert program and I am very proud to help people to maximize their experience with these awesome machines!
I craft a LOT!
On January 1, 2019, I began a Cricut Access Challenge, which has become a regular feature on my blog and in my groups. If you’d like to see all of my projects from my challenge, you can find the index at this link: Cricut Access Challenge Project Index
I also love to cook and craft other things, too. Lately I’ve been enjoying cooking with a Dutch Oven. I’m hopelessly old fashioned and I love to cook all those Italian and New England recipes from your childhood. If you are interested in my recipes, you can find them all here: Recipe Index
“Go forth and Cricut, my friends!”

Hi Rita I recently watched your butterfly lantern. I was thinking instead of cutting out pieces for the velum, make one shape for the butterfly. You will not need to glue each piece. Just a thought.
Where can I find the pattern for the dog bandanas?
