Blendtec and the Cricut

Just a quick, fun post today...

I was supposed to be cleaning my house today (big birthday party coming up this weekend for my soon-to-be-six year old!), but instead of doing what I was supposed to do, I was looking at old Cricut videos on YouTube, and came across this one from Blendtec...

The video is only 1-1/2 minutes long, but if you do not have time to watch the video, here's the story:

The man in the lab coat claims he bought a Cricut for his wife, and now needs to get rid of her old scrapbooking supplies because she no longer needs them.  He throws scissors, dies, and paper punches in the Blendtec blender, and proceeds to turn on the blender.  It turns the supplies into a pile of rubble, leaving him with more space in his shoe closet - hilarious!

Now, don't run out and buy yourself a Blendtec if you need to do a little de-cluttering.  The video has a "do not try this at home" disclaimer.  Plus, there are much better ways to get rid of your unwanted scrapbooking supplies - you could sell them, or better yet, donate them to a school or another organization that could use them.

Have a great day!  And if you have time, let me know what you thought about the video by leaving a comment below...


  1. I didn’t have a chance to watch the video, but that’s hilarious! I don’t want my husband to get wind of this idea though!
    Good luck with your birthday party! I’ve been in your situation many times this past year since I work full time, have two small children and have seemed to become the host of all family holidays and events since we moved to our new house last June! So here’s my best tip that I have to offer you when you find yourself in a time crunch situation: Gather up all the clutter all over your house into laundry baskets and stash them somewhere until after the party — the basement or even the trunk of your car works! Once the clutter is out of the way, it makes it a lot easier to clean your house when you’re working with a clean slate!
    And baskets make it easy to sort the stuff after the party to get it to the right location in the house and put away.

  2. Hi Cindy! I’m a master at stashing the clutter. Unfortunately, after the parties are over, I am not so good at getting things sorted and put away! Oh well, we can only do what we can do, right? One of these days I will have a clean house, but it probably won’t be until my boys are grown and gone. For now, I think I will just fake it until I make it. Thanks for your comment (and encouragement)!
