Hot Beverage Station + How to Clean a Coffee Maker

I’m sharing affresh® in my life as part of a sponsored series for Socialstars™. #affresh

Hello there! One of my must haves in my kitchen is a hot beverage station. We do not drink coffee, but we are addicted to hot chocolate. ha! Annnnd in the winter (or on a super cool summer night like we have been having here) a hot cup of apple cider is perfect. About once a month or so I like to clean our single serve brewer really well with affresh® Coffeemaker Cleaner. It is amazing at getting out all of those hard water deposits & mineral build-up. Let me show you how! :)

Cricut Question Series at GingerSnapCrafts.com How easy is it to upload my own images with the Cricut

I hope you’ve been following along with my Cricut® question series. You can see question 1 here & question 2 here and question 3 here. Annnnnd now we move on to question 4 (which ties in nicely with question 3) ~ How easy is it to upload my own images with the Cricut? Fairly easy! It took me a little while to figure it out, but once I did I wanted to share what I learned with you. So here we go!

As most of you know, I’ve had a Silhouette for years. Annnnd I have a very, very large Silhouette library to go along with that! But never fear you can use most of these images with your Cricut. Let me show you how! First, open up your cut file in Silhouette Studio.
