Bought a Cricut or thinking of buying one?
Still in the Box?
Let's get that Cricut out of the box & get making!

Is your Cricut still packed up somewhere still in a box? 

Did you take it out of the box and set it on a shelf and it makes your craft room look awesome but you haven't even plugged it in yet?

Are you scared you might break it? Or that you might mess up your project?

Did you actually set it up, make the introductory project, have no idea how you did it and haven't touched it since?

Can't find any lessons near by? Or actually took a lesson at your local craft store and still scratching your head with questions?

Do you wish you could just sit with someone and ask all the questions without having to wait to see if your question is answered in a large class?

Want to know how to turn all this stuff into a business?

I think this is meant just for you and you and you.
