Cricut Design Studio Software... IS A MUST HAVE ITEM!!!!

Last night I decided to order the Cricut Design Studio software. At this time yesterday, it wasn't on the Cricut website yet, but I thought I'd take my chances and order it anyway.
There was a lot of speculation, that Cricut had decided not to release the free trial version of the Design Studio. So... I was delighted, to receive an email from Cricut today offering me that free trial version.
The trial version will allow you to cut from the original cartridges that came with your Bug, so you can see how the software works. You'll also be able to access all of the Cricut cartridges, but only to explore and play with them on, the on screen cutting mat. Once you purchase the software, you will be able to cut from any cartridge that you own.
In my opinion the software should have come with the Cricut to begin with, it's definitely worth having.
You can also download the software (full version, not trial) from for $89.95 and if you pay an additional $8.95 SH fee, they will send you the rest of the items (Install CD, USB cable & mouse pad) some time in January. Better yet, you can just go buy your own USB cable to connect you Cricut to your PC or if you're like us, you may already have an extra USB cable in a box in the garage...LOL.
Be Smart Create Art!!!
Have a AWESOME weekend everyone.

Delight Loved Ones with a Handmade Card or Gift...

There are so many fascinating arts and crafts out there, if you open your mind... You can have a blast. There's tons of free: How to instructions, templates, patterns, etc., via the net. There are ton's of magazines and books for learning all sorts of crafts. You can also find special crafts shows on television.
There's nothing more delightful than giving and or receiving a handmade card or gift.
Almost 2 years ago, I discovered paper crafting. The adventure began with a plan to create a scrapbook... Who would have ever known that I, would become a paper-crafting junkie. As far as that scrapbook, well I did make one page and it's pretty cute, but once I discovered card making, that was it, I never made another scrapbook page. But, I have made hundreds of cards since that day. Our home has been taken over by crafting goodies, but creating cards is one of my favorite ways to relax.
So, if you decide to dabble in creating your own special cards or gifts... Proceed with caution or soon you will have rooms in your home, dedicated as the "Craft Rooms"... LOL!

Be sure to join the pleadge to give and recieve only handmade items this year!!!!!
