I saw an article on facebook this morning that intrigued me as it was something I didn't know I could do with my Cricut. CRAFT Magazine article..How-To: Cut Polymer Clay with an Electronic CutterClick here: how-to-cut-polymer-clay-with-the-cricut
I love polymer clay, and to be able to cut out shapes with the images available on Cricut cartridges to use on art projects. WOW, who knew!! I am going to have to try doing this as I have lots of clay and lots of ideas and hopefully more time for art.
We had good news...yesterday plans were finalized to bring my mother home from the nursing home. Mom will be going home to her own house on Tuesday. My dad is thrilled. Mom could only come home if she had a care giver 24/7. Not sure how my dad is going to like someone in the house with them round the clock, but dad wanted mom home and mom wanted to be home. All my brothers and I want is for my elderly parents (dad is 92 and mom is 88) to be happy together with what time they have left. The seperation was hard on both of them, as they have been married for 65 years and known each other for 70.
Alzheimer's is just a devastating illness. My grandmother, my mother's mom had Alzheimers, and I just pray that I don't get it. Scary to even think about it. I just hope that it works out for my mom returning home. We agreed to try, and dad knows if it doesn't work out that mom will have to go back to the nursing home.
Since mom is coming home, and I won't have to take my dad to the nursing home and make his meals everyday, I am going next Thursday to spend a few days with my cousin, Cheryl who lives on Cape Cod. I need some time away, and I feel so much better knowing that my mom will be well cared for. My brothers will check on my parents daily.
Well, gotta run...lots to do today and hopefully have time for a quick trip to the Crop Shop. I have a 40% off coupon on one item, and this is a no sales tax weekend for Massachusetts.
Enjoy your weekend.
