First Video in new Series-Glenda's Hints & How-Tos (aka GHHT)

OK, here's the first in my new series of "short" videos, which consist of some of the many "little" things I've learned & stumbled across throughout the years & through my journey as a crafter. I like to think that all these "little" things have added up to help me become the crafter I am today, which is certainly a better crafter than I was years ago. I hope you find something in these little hints that will help you as well.

This first hint didn't really even start out to be a "hint". I was just looking around my craft room one day when I was kind of "stuck" in a creative rut, just searching for some inspiration anywhere and then my eyes landed on my "color spot" and I immediately felt uplifted and inspired. My video camera happened to be sitting right there next to me, all set up and ready to go from when I was doing some videos earlier, so I grabbed it and just started to talk--to try to express how BEAUTIFUL these things were, all grouped by color like that--my own personal "eye-candy"!!! And as I talked, I also thought about how helpful it's been for me to have all all these items sorted out by their colors and how much time it's saved me in the long run.

So yes, what started out as a personal inspiration, did end up as a "hint" and I truly hope it's a hint that will help someone else find their own inspiration one day. Enjoy!

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
