A tale of crafting

Once upon a time, there was a sweet, young crafter with slightly obsessive-compulsive tendencies.   She was so excited when a "sequel" to her favorite Cricut cartridge, Create a Critter was released.  It was with great joy that she anticipated all of the cards she would be able to make with two cartridges full of critters!  When it arrived in her mailbox, her heart leapt with joy!

She pulled it out of it's clamshell, tried it out on her Cricut and lo, it cut so well!  Then she turned to place it upon her Cricut cartridge shelf.  But alas!  The makers of Cricut had changed the design on the box since the last time a cartridge was released that she wanted.  When placed upon her shelf beside the original Create a Critter, the box looked quite out of place.  This made her slightly obsessive-compulsive tendencies quite uneasy.

The young crafter decided that she did not like seeing one green box amongst a sea of blue.  She moved the box for Create a Critter 2 to the end of her "shapes" cartridges shelves.  But alas again!  Now the cartridge was not beside it's predecessor, and her slightly obsessive-compulsive tendencies again were ill at ease.

The young crafter sighed mightily and decided to think about which battle she would rather fight.  She knows no good answer, besides creating her own blue cover on the computer and slipping it over the green one, which is not entirely out of the realm of possibility.

And thus ends our tale of woe.

  1. You are so funny. I put mine in long business envelopes and labeled them...then inserted them in photo boxes. Sure did give me six more shelves to add stuff to!
