All these days I was busy dealing with the business side of blogging; working on the “Instagram 101 for Cricut Businesses” course and then doing my taxes. Seriously, sometimes I just hate dealing with the business part of blogging ESPECIALLY taxes. And to top it all off, my phone just bailed on me in the middle of the day.
I was taking a nap, and then the alarm went off and when I tried to shut it down, the phone just got stuck. When I tried rebooting it BAM! Nothing. I just hate all these unplanned interruptions. And I’m a bit sad about losing the phone as I still love the design and it looks as good as new. Poor phone, stuck with me for almost 6 good years. So sad to say goodbye. 🙁
Anyway, let’s get started with the tutorial on how to make photo magnets with Cricut.
