Hello, Cricut buddy! Welcome to Cut N Make Crafts. I’m writing this post from my AirBnB room that I rented for our trip to Sydney.
My husband and I arrived here yesterday and it has been crazy since then because our car broke down after reaching here. The worst part is all the mechanics are closed due to the Easter holidays so we had to extend our stay here instead of heading towards Brisbane as planned. 🙁
We’re trying to make the most of our time in Sydney though. Today we went to check out the city and oh boy! I LOVED it. It reminded me of a LOT of Kuala Lumpur (my fav city on the planet) and it felt SO good! I’m so happy, I can just come here whenever I miss KL.
Tomorrow we’ll be going for skydiving and I’m stoked because this has been on my bucket list for the past 10 years. I’m SO GLAD I’ll finally be crossing it off my list. 😀
How did you spend your Easter holiday? Let me know in the comments below.
Alright, now let’s get back to our post where I’m sharing 9 everyday objects you need to make crafting with your Cricut easier.
