Some Basic Information About My Site and My Files:

First a note about my files:

All my files are for personal use. I do not charge for any files I create. I share them here for others to use for personal use only. Please do not use them to submit for contests, etc. without getting my permission first. Please give credit where credit is due. I will try to do the same. This means I will try to identify where I got an item or a project if I didn't create it myself and there is an identifable source. Sometimes however I use basic clipart or coloring pages. You may however share these files with others for their personal use (you may not charge for them - you may pass them on for free) or you may point them here to my blog to get the files themselves. If a download file is available, it will appear at the bottom of the post and will be in a different color text.

PLEASE NOTE: I reside in the USA where we use the MM/DD/YYYY date format on computers (and in everything else we do!) If you are outside the USA where they use the DD/MM/YYYY date format on computers, you MAY experience an "Unhandled exception" error when you try to open one of my Cricut DS files. It is an error related to the date format. An easy fix is available at SusanBlueRobot's Blog. Susan has a simple HexEdit program and directions which will allow you to alter the date so you can use the files. Note: This is only an issue if the save date of the file is after the 12th of the month! It is also only an issue with DS files. I have never seen this issue with MTC or SCAL.

Blog Moved

Hey, I just wanted to post that I am not updating this blog any longer.  I am leaving it up however so people can still use the files I have previously shared. However, I just wanted to let you know that I have quit updating this blog because I wanted to get rid of the "Cricut" name in my blog.  I do still have my cricut machine and way too many cartridges, but I seldom use them.  I tend to use other software that I have that allows me to be much more creative then relying upon cricut cartridges.  I also have other cutters that I primarily use as well. I have an 18" black cat cougar cutter as well as a Silhouette SD cutter. As a result, I wanted to "move on" and make a blog that I felt comfortable sharing cutting files from.  Most of my files I share are either Make the Cut (MTC) files I have created in MTC or SVG files that I have converted from the MTC file that I have created. If you would like to follow me to my new blog and see the files that I have shared here (I have moved over most of the files that were MTC or SVG files to that blog.  Some were "seasonal" and I will reshare those over there at the appropriate time of the year) and new ones that I have added there you can find it here:

As always, thanks for stopping by and I hope that you will come check out my new blog some time and maybe choose to follow it if you like the files that I share.  I promise no ads.  As on here, I don't post regularly but I do share files when I make them and can find time to do all the work to share them!
