Hockey Family-Cricut Style

You may or may not know that we are a hockey family that doesn’t play ice hockey! 😂We watch hockey. We play street hockey. We play knee hockey. We talk hockey. We collect hockey cards. We talk stats! We love the stats! My boys DO however play ball hockey which is basically, hockey off ice!

Every season has playoffs, hopefully ending in a trip to the medal games. We have made it to the medal rounds a few times before but have always come up empty. The one constant in our playoffs is the t-shirts that I wear to cheer on my teams! For the past few seasons I have used my Cricut Explore Air 2 to cut and design my t-shirts. I used my Cricut Easy Press to press it.

Here are some of my past t-shirts. As you can see our teams have been the Grizzlies and the Wolves.

Again we are on the Grizzlies and Wolves but last playoffs I only made one Wolves shirt because both boys ended up on Wolves team but in different age groups. This time I needed another Wolves shirt to wear so I made this one for me.

My younger son wanted to get in on the T-shirt action so we made him this one which he will proudly wear this weekend to his brother’s games.

Unfortunately our team drew the short straw so we have a game at 7am on Sunday morning! 😴 I made a shirt for the occasion! I love this shirt so much that I will be wearing it a lot even when we aren’t in playoffs!

I love using my Cricut Explore Air 2 and Easy Press. It gives us the flexibility to create what we want, when we want it! You can bet that as long as my boys are playing ball hockey I will be making playoff shirts!

I’m Still Here

Really, I am. I wish I had an excuse to justify my absence but in reality, I don’t. It’s not like I am busier than most Moms but apparently lazier since I haven’t blogged in forever! 😂 My boys are fully immersed in their ball hockey playoffs. We are not currently playing during the week but weekends are crazy!

Do you see that little 21? That is my 13 year old! He maybe small but he is easily the fastest kid on the team! Did I mention that he is tenacious? He easily stands up to kids twice his size and if he doesn’t bounce off of them he beats them!That guy in the middle, heading for the net? Yeah, he’s mine too! This is his second season playing! He loves it! He will spend hours practicing on the deck in the backyard!

During the weekends I am also trying to squeeze in the last few orders that I have to complete and make a few Christmas gifts and some Christmas decor for ourselves. Somewhere in my mind it seemed like a great idea to try to do this all at once. Everybody on my side of the family gets novelty socks. I am bringing out my inner Oprah at Christmastime, ” you get socks”, “you get socks”, “everybody gets socks”! I also personalized stockings for all the humans in my house, the dogs and cats but I still need to make a rabbit stocking.

It’s the second weekend of December and we have yet to put up lights or get a tree! This is our must do weekend! I made a few ornaments for our, yet to exist, tree and last but not least I am finishing up some Christmas Eve boxes for my boys. I have all the contents but still want to label them and fill them with goodies! I will post those next week!
