Thank you SO MUCH for participating!!---


I know I'm gonna repeat some before too long, so my apologies in advance. Here are this week's sites that I have enjoyed for one reason or another. Click on over to any or all of these sites when you have a chance.

1. Memory Miser--(online store) seriously, they have some of the best deals around.  Especially when it comes to cartridges. If you spend over 34.99, shipping is free. They've already got Destinations, Songbird, Tie the Know, Forever Young, Once Upon a Princess, Sentimentals, and Heritage for 31.99 each. They have several more at 36.99 including Give Hoot, Nursery Rhymes, and Create a Critter. Their most expensive cartridge is 38.99 (this does not include pre-orders); click HERE. to take a look at the carts just mentioned .  Click HERE for Memory Miser's pre-order items which include carts for both the Expression and the Imagine, as well as ink carts for the Imagine.

2. 4shared -- You can upload your Cricut Design Studio files to this site, and others can then download the files they want to use.  You can also upload Word documents, pictures, etc.  It's free.  And since CDS files don't take up much room, you won't likely have to get the Premium version (for more GB of space) which does cost money.

3. & 4. Stamping Moments -- She's got some gorgeous creations posted, from boxes to cards to sacks and beyond.  You'll find some inspiration for your next project for sure on this blog.  She also has a blog with videos giving you instruction in to things like rubber cement resist technique, embossed dots, stenciling on cardstock, and paper sack books.

5. Daisy Trail -- Digital Scrapbooking site; some is free, the rest is very affordable. They showcase a lot of scrapbooking pages, so traditional scrapbookers can still get ideas from this site.

6. Download.com -- Once you arrive at this page, you can do one of several things.  In the left hand column you'll see a list of links that says "top freeware".  Also, I advise you once you have done a specific search on something you want to download (like "screensaver" for instance), to look in the left column under "Narrow Your Results".  I always click on "free" to see what is available.  There's so much you can get without pulling out your credit card.

7. Making your own girl scout cookies -- The name of the site is CHOW and they tell you how to make a lot more than cookies.  Take a look around, especially at the video section full of instruction. When you click on this link you'll go straight to the page I promised -- and learn how to make their version of girl scout cookies. 

8.  Ehow -- their motto is  "how to do just about everything", and it's true.  There's instructions for how to start a hot dog stand, how to get a federal grant for starting a business, and much much more.  I promise you you'll want to book mark this one.

9. Converting a PNG file to an SVG file -- You'll be going to the Frugal Crafter's blog for this one.  There's so much more than just converting files in this blog, but I wanted to draw attention to it for those of you who want to convert your files for SCAL, etc.

10. Top Ten Pet Innovations -- I know, I know--a top ten list with a top ten list.  Pet lovers will find this fun & interesting, I sure got a kick out of some of them.  Let me know if you have tried any of these.

Looking for the FREE ZONE (free blog background sites, free font sites...)

That information has been moved to the Imagine That Plus site so that this site will load faster (that one doesn't have as much, and everything is pretty much in posts & not at the bottom of every page so it loads at a pretty good rate).
