WOYWW - Christmas Comes Early

Hello there fellow WOYWWers, another Wednesday comes around again and it's time to join in the fun atJulia's fab blog, where we get to look at crafter's desks around the country, and even world.

This week, the bears are queuing (im)patiently to get a look, and a play, at the new loveliness on the desk. Horace was first in the queue, followed by Podgy, and the other bears jostled for position.

So, what were we all queuing for? This

A Cricut!!! How lucky are we? It's an early Christmas present and we're so excited to have such a wonderful gift, no wonder there was so much pushing and shoving to get to play first.

Horace loaded up one of the cartridges that came with the Cricut, Type Candy,

He was rather greedy, and once he'd printed one word, he decided to have a sneaky second go.

He seemed rather fascinated by the cutting process

And cut us the word 'pressie', quite fitting considering the occasion.

The letters cut like a dream, and were easy to pull off the special sticky mat.

Especially as our pressie giver had thought to also buy us a handy spatula to ease the more sticky letters from the mat.

Now to heft Horace out of the way, he's had quite a long enough play, we'll send him blog hopping while we have our turns!

Don't forget, we have our own little challenge, based on books, this can be found By pressing paws here we'd love for some more entrants. It's a just for fun challenge but we do have a fab furry button for those who take part, and another fab furry button just for those who'd like to support us.

With love from the bears.


  1. Hey bears... wow, aren't you the lucky ones? That's some great early Christmas PRESSIE!

  2. How lovely hope you all have lots of fun I'm going to try and enter your book challenge this afternoon watch this space toni #107

    1. That would be really fabulous if you did. All bears have big grins on their faces now. :)

  3. What lucky bears getting to play with such a fab new toy :D can't wait to see what works of art you produce from it. X

  4. I just love my Cricut as it looks like Horace does too. He is so clever to have worked it out before hand, just make sure he doesn't push you around too much. Put the protective cover back on the sticky sheet straight away as it makes the sheet last longer, but you probably already know that. LOL

    Give Horace a hug for me....... he is such a handsome bear

    1. Oh, so Horace sticking hs furry little paw all over it is NOT a good idea then??? HORACE......

  5. Well that truly is a wonderful pressie on your table this week.

    I can see your mum is going to have a hard time of getting to use it with all those little paws there already, mind you, with Horace taking the lead he’ll be able to show you how it all works.

    Happy Crafting!

  6. Looks like the bears are having fun!
    Hope you get a chance soon. Enjoy! :)

  12. Now, now, bears, no pushing and shoving, everyone will get a turn. What a wonderful early Christmas present!!! I understand there is so much you can do with a Cricut! It is good you got it early so that by Christmas time you will be a pro! I like the spatula thing. I don't have a Cricut but know that sometimes the cut out bit sticks to the mat even with my Big Shot. Have lots of fun playing!

  13. That looks like one really great present. I keep hearing about the cricut and it seems to do some really great things. I hope you get to play with it once in a while, if the bears will let you :)
    Have a great week.
