**I  am on a ProvoCraft/Cricut Boycott! They won’t get another dime from me!  Got a Cricut? Well use it! Don’t have one yet? Consider a different  machine!! Click here for more details about my boycott and how I got here!! You can join the boycott too!**

Happy Wednesday ya’ll! I will get to my Cricut Wednesday project in just a moment, but I want to share something very personal with all of you first. Many of you have been so kind and thoughtful, leaving me comments and writing to me about my migraines so I wanted to give you an update.

I have some not so happy, but happy-at-the-same-time news to share with you today. As you know I have been dealing with horrible migraines for about the past month, daily in fact. Well I went for blood work last week and I got my results today. I have Vitamin B 12 deficiency which must have developed over this past year because I was checked last year for it. So tomorrow I go in for my first of many weekly B12 shots. Hopefully this will stop some of the migraines! So it sucks that I am going to have to deal with this forever, but at least it explains the recent migraine cluster a bit. Also, I go in next week for Botox treatment for my migraines. I am exhausted and my mom is going to just pay for it because our insurance is refusing to pay for it. HATE insurance!! Thankfully, my mom is able and willing to do such a generous thing for me. This stuff is NOT cheap. It is a big deal to me that she is doing this. I can never put into words how much my mom means to me and how much this means to me that she would do this for me. Thank you all for your continued support and I appreciate your thoughts and prayers. Some days are harder than others and your kind words always mean a lot to me.

Now, finally, what you’ve been waiting for. . . Cricut Wednesday!!!

Today’s project features a giant tree die cut from the Cricut Pooh and Friends cartridge. This has to be the cutest tree ever! OK probably not, don’t go showing me cuter ones, leave me to my ideas!! This tree, border under the photo, and the background was made with patterned papers from the DCWV Spring Glitter Stack.


  • deer are stamps from the Stampin’ UP Forest Friends stamp set. They were stamped using Creamy Caramel ink onto Whisper white ink and then I cut around them using my new Xacto knife that Elmer’s sent to me! I will be posting more about this awesome tool soon. Did I mention it is PINK?!!?!

  1. I am so glad they have found something to help your migraines. I had to get B12 shots every week for a few months, and it wasn’t too bad. I got pretty used to it! I can’t wait until it start to help you!

  2. So glad to hear you will be getting some relief from the migraines. I understand about the insurance. mine does not cover any of my chiropractic care but I would pay just about anything to not have the headaches and to be able to sleep more than an hour or two at a time. Feel better and take it easy


  3. Hi Samantha – Please let me know if the shots or the botox help because I also suffer from migraines, anywhere from 10-12 a month and some of those are for 2 to 3 days at a time.


  4. I’m glad you’ll be getting some help for your migraines! I get them every so often and couldn’t even begin to imagine getting them daily. Ouch! Hope everything goes well!

    Oh and PS, when I saw those new DCWV paper stacks at Joanns, I immediately thought of you – my other DCWV obsessed partner in crime LOL!! Michaels has some new ones there too that you might wanna check out!
