OK, here I go!!! My very first post!!!

Well, after wanting to start a blog for quite some time now, I've finally taken the very first "baby step". I did it!!! I registered the name & now I'm actually posting for the first time. My hope for this blog is for it to be a happy place for me to share with other crafters my ideas, projects & any tips that I've learned along the way that may help others. I know I have a long way to go from here. It will likely take me several weeks to really get this blog "tweaked" to look the way I'd like it to (first thing I need to learn is how to change the color & setup of these blog templates, yikes!!), not to mention to start adding "real" content, images, tutorials, etc. (Plus, I still need to clean the disaster I created in my scrap room while making all my holiday projects, whew!! I can't really make any videos in here until I manage to find the top of my desk, LOL!!!)

I hope you will all bear with me as I get up to speed, learn about this new medium of blogging & how to tailor it not only to my needs, but also to yours.

Finally, I hope that when I get it going in the right direction, it will a place that you will like to visit & a place that may occasionally inspire you!!! Any suggestions or ideas, please don't hesitate to post comments, so I may learn!! Wish me luck!!!

  2. Congrats on the new blog!! I too am a new blogger and am still figuring out a few things. You will get the hang of it. My journey is just starting with a craft room remodel but hopefully soon I will be able to start showing some of the things I make. Loved the video of the Yudu. You did good!!

Cricut Markers using "Glenda's Marker Method"-Videos!

Do you want an easier & more precise way to use your Cricut Markers? For those of you who never saw my post waaaayyy last year on the Cricut MB outlining how to use my "Glenda's Cricut Marker Method", I finally taped some videos back in February (2009), but sadly, they were part of a group of Cricut videos I'd done that somehow disappeared off my hard drive. Then, after I recently did a "disk defrag" they magically reappeared, which was a THRILL!!!! So I finally got them edited & loaded up to YouTube. There is a "short" version of the Tutorial, which only talks about using the markers (using my "method", which does differ from the manufacturer's directions!) & shows how to change them, etc. Then there is an "extended" version, which is a 3-Part Tutorial that not only demonstrates how to use the "Glenda's Cricut Marker Method", but also gives some other "Hints & How-To's" in typica

Ultimate Crafter's Companion--2 new Video mini-tutorials

Well, today/tonight I made a couple little mini-tutorials regarding the Ultimate Crafter's Companion (UCC). One shows how to replace the hinges when you get your new ones and the other shows what I've done to help keep my tools "on-board" & in place with the UCC. Here's the video that shows you how to change the hinges on your UCC/Ultimate Crafter's Companion: And here's the video about keeping your tools in place & on-board: Hope these help.
