Festive Friday October 28, 2011

Oh Goodness last Friday of October, it is going to be November in a few days. I am surprised that in Ohio we have not had snow yet.... We ALWAYS get snow in October, and I love the snow because that means Christmas is coming soon!!! Speaking of which Christmas is only 58 days away! Yippie Yippie Yea!

There was so much going on last week that I forgot to announce last week's Countdown to Christmas weekly cartridge giveaway winner!

So I will announce last week's winner plus this week's winner.

But a few things first.

I have a ton of new items to add to the store... literally a TON of stuff!
       I will be adding a few things to the store over this weekend, just a few things. BUT you will want to check it out often this weekend. I will be listing a few items for FREE, you just have to find them. They will be priced at $0 you will have to pay the $5 for shipping though. It might not be on the opening screen it might not be in the right category... who knows where it will be. As soon as you find it checkout right away, otherwise if it is in your shopping cart, someone else can still buy it. One rule is you can only get ONE free item. I might do this again, you may only get one free in a twelve month period. So if you win this weekend you may not win a free item again until next October. So it will be a fun search for you over the weekend and if you see one and miss it keep looking over the weekend, there will be more.

      Also if you could help me and click on the add down the right hand side of this page I get a penny every time you click on it. If you all can help me to do that EVERY day when you come to my blog it helps me out and allows me to keep giving things away. You don't have to buy anything when you get to the link. Literally every penny counts. I would love to keep doing giveaways so if you can help me and click on the ads it would really help me out. They are trusted ads so you don't have to worry spam or anything when you get there. So if you can click on them every time you come to my blog I would REALLY appreciate it. Like I said ti doesn't cost you anything but it really helps me!

      I am not sure if you know yet or not but I am doing the Countdown to Christmas with 25 projects a day for 25 days in December. I am looking for some help. I will have a sign up next week. You do not have to have a blog to do this. This is your chance to show your creations to people. So I need 25 guest designers EVERYDAY in December. You may do several projects on several days.... there is no limit :) But you can also do one project for just one day. More details will follow next week. The only rules are you MUST use a Cricut, no SVG images and no Digi Stamps. This is also a good way to get noticed by me as I am having a Design Team call in January. I do not know how many people I will me adding to the Design Team it all depends on who wants to stay or move on. Again, more details to follow.

      I will be doing the following classes in November. All you have to do is watch on Ustream. You do not have to pay for these or anything like that. I will also be recording them so if you cannot make it to that time you can still watch it later, or over and over again. I do not have the schedule entirely done but here are some of the classes coming up:
Vinyl, glass etching, Christmas Ornaments, Christmas cards, Cricut cuttable stamps/magnet/create your own embossing folders, cakes, pie crusts, cookies, fondant/gum paste, fabric, stamping, cuttlebug embossing, embossing powders, metal, stamping techniques, Disney Characters, Word Books, Welding, Flowers..etc That is just in November!
I will also be doing several tutorials that are a series:
Cricut Expression
Cricut E2
Cricut Imagine
Cricut Gypsy
Cricut Cake
Cricut CraftRoom
and a few more as people request them.

I will also be posting the RGB codes for ALL of the Imagine cartridges. These are just the color codes that you can make your items with the Imagine to match other things on the cartridge.

On to the Design Team......

Samantha used Christmas Cards for her card today. Her blog is

Yvette used the Hello Kitty Font cartridge to create this banner.

Shelly Lynn used Happy Hauntings Cricut Cartridge. Her blog is

Suzys Crafts used Celebrate with a Flourish.

Liz said... I love your post today, we all need to remember that each of us has our own beliefs and that is what makes our country great, that we can all believe different things but still be friends and actually learn from each other. The projects are beautiful and I always like to go to each of the ladies blogs and make a personal comment, I know that is one of the reasons we all make blogs, to get love from each other!    October 20, 2011 9:15 PM

Want to know how you can win a cartridge? I give away one per week from the comment left on Friday to the next Thursday. I randomly pick ONE comment to win.For you to win, come to my blog EVERYDAY and leave a comment. Each post you comment on is one chance to win that week. If I have 4 posts in one day comment on each one for a chance. You get a point for each post you comment on, it doesn't matter if you comment 10 times on the same post, only ONE will count for that post.

Next.... Want to win a Cricut Cake Machine (The full size one)?
Starting next week, you can email a picture of something you have made with a cartridge on my site... or something made with the one of the papers I sell in my SHOP. When I add the items next week, you will see what I need emailed to me. If you are lucky enough your project will be picked and then shown on the website/store. BUT to win the Cricut Cake all you have to do is send a project. It will be picked at random from all of the projects submitted. you don't have to have the best project..... just have your email picked!
More details will follow next week with the rules and guidelines.

Lastly, I am adding some of the new cartridges to the store so you can pre-order them! I do not yet have a shipping date from Provo Craft Yet.

Again please don't forget to click on the ads on the top right hand side of my blog every chance you get. THANK YOU so much.

Next week I will put out the calendar for the month of November and some new tips and trick and other great Cricut resources (In my opinion ;)

I am so excited that I am going to St. Jude's on MONDAY!!! We get to take over 4,000 cards made from around the world for the kids at the Hospital. I am so excited to take these and deliver them to all of the kids!!!! I cannot believe how many cards you all sent and I cannot thank you enough!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Also I would like to thank all of you for the cards you have sent me, candy card, and thank you notes. Please don't think I don't appreciate them because I truly do and have them all in my Craft Room. Thank you for your thoughts, prayers and support that you all have given me.
