Top Two Tuesday - Favorite Purchases

Today's Top Two Tuesday from The Undomestic Mamma is Favorite Purchases Made This Year.

I had a hard time at first trying to remember everything I purchased this year and what might be my favorite.  So I started thinking about all those big purchases and I realized I've actually already blogged about both of my favorite purchases!

My first favorite purchase was my new Pink Cricut Machine

 I have now collected quite a few cartridges to go with my machine and I even purchased the Cricut Design Studio software so I can connect my Cricut to my computer. This past weekend we moved a lot of stuff into storage, including a chase, leaving only the couch in the living room.  This meant I had an extra end table sort of hanging out in the middle of the living room. So I pulled the end table next to the computer desk, placed my Cricut on top of it, put all of my cartridges on the shelf below it and connected to the computer.  I figured Andrew would be none to happy when he came home to see my new re-arranged craft area, but surprisingly he said it was okay. So now I can cut out different shapes, weld them together, and make awesome titles for my books. I'm very excited. :0)

My second favorite purchase is without a doubt my new camera.
I've had a blast taking new photos and playing around with filters and shutter speeds. I think I've taken pictures of every plant that resides around our house. Here are a few of my favorite shots so far (remember, I'm still learning/playing with this camera, so it should only get better from here!!!).
I have no idea why there is a folding chair on the floor next to Parker...
He is looking at me like I am crazy. 
Our beautiful hydrangeas on the side of the house.
