Where has the time gone and a FREEBIE

It is so hard to believe December is coming to an end.  I know I want to make several changes in the next year. I want to get refocused on my health and healthy living.  I don't call them resolutions because for me resolutions never work.  I am just going to focus on getting healthy.  I had lost about 20 pounds last year and gained them all back over the summer when work was crazy and haven't been able to focus since.  So I am going to try to focus more, pack my lunches, eat smaller meals, and go back to Zumba Classes.  So much to do so little time.. I need to learn how to manage time better LOL..   I am going to start small this time and not try to do it all at the same time.

Anyhow, our oldest son is home from college for a few more days so I plan to spend some quality time with him today. 

I have uploaded another Free file today!  So please go on over and check it out!  Also be sure to look around our site and see what else is new.

Happy Cutting!

I bet you thought I got lost! Another Freebie

Wow it has been crazy around here. From finding out they can't do hubbys other Knee until late January, to my sons continuing dental work, and lastly I am finally on break from work.. Woo HOO! Long awaited Christmas Break is finally here.  So I hope to do some catching up on my blog and the forum and our Designing with Die Cuts site during this time as well as all the other things I need to get done before I go back to work.  You will probably not believe this but I JUST put up my tree today.. I got a small live tree this year. I didn't have anyone to help me get all the stuff from the attic and since hubby's other knee is bothering him I didn't want him to help as he would have to stand on the concrete floor whilst I get all the decos down so I kept putting it off.  Anywho...

You can find my latest freebie here it will thake you to the Designing With Die Cuts Dowload page for my files. You will NOT need a password. It is so great having a site I can give you freebies without adding a password and feeling secure at the same time.

Be sure while you are there to look around. We have made a few changes.  We are trying to link videos that we find with information for you on all things Die Cutter Related. 

Also be sure to check out the VDBC forum. Lots of stuff going on there from Challenges to just great conversations. Everyone there is so FRIENDLY.. It is refreshing to know there is a place you can go that everyone is polite and there is no drama going on..  also be sure to go check out the VDBC store MANY of the designers have sales and special offers going on..

Happy Cutting!

Thirsty Thursday Freebie

It is so hard to believe it is Thursday again already. Boy the time sure does fly.  So I know I am posting this on Wednesday but I wanted to be sure to get this weeks freebie out on time. This week Darcy is doing the Weekly Challenge over at Visual Designs by Chris.. you will just have to look for her specific post.. She doesn't have it up yet.. But be on the lookout. I can't wait to see what she does. 

So I have been trying to figure out the best way to convert my files for Cricut users with SCAL. There are a few ways they can be done and I wondered if any of you (who have cricut and SCAL)  could leave a comment with your preferences on how you like to receive your files. I can save individual SVGs of each of the pieces which I have started doing btw, I can also do individual scut files of each of those svgs already imported into scal at the size the file was created for. And I am sure there are several other ways that it can be done.  My main thought is to be able to offer you the best format for you (well the majority) So if you could be so kind just post a comment with your thoughts. I would definately appreciate it.

So for todays freebie with everyone catching the flu I thought a title for "Caught A Bug" would be appropriate. It can be used for kiddos collecting them bugs too!

You can find this file here on Designing With Die Cuts.  Be sure to spread the word. We are trying to get that site moving so if there is something die cut related you would like us to do we would love to hear about it.  Also if you would be interested in being on my creative team I am still looking for a few more folks to be a part of it. Just email me.

Happy Cutting!

This and That and a Freebie to boot

Busy day today.. my kiddo and I are off to the endodontist today so I am taking the day off of work. WooHoo about work but yucko for my kiddo who needs root canals yes I said (s) it is looking like he will need a few. Poor kiddo got my bad genes with his teeth. I remember being his age and having to get crazy dental work. He is in NO pain and the dentist can not believe it but then again when I had dental issues I never really had pain either.

Our middle son has finally settled on a college. He is going to go to Santa Fe' college in Gainesville. So I guess he is going up ther to register today. Thank goodness I was beginning to think that he wan't going to go to college. But I am so thankfull he has decided.

Our oldest is still in Ohio at college and he has finally found a job that will allow him the hours to make some extra money. Which is good for him because he has a time with saving money.. Seems to BURN a hole in his pocket before it even gets settled in there. I am really hoping he will open up his eyes and see how important it is to save money.

Enough about my kiddos for now... hehehehehe

Now on to the freebie.. I have had a creative block lately so this weeks freebie is all about that.

You can find it here along with other freebies. While you are there be sure to check out the other free files there. NO Password required.

And lastly but not least there are still a spot or two left over at the VDBC Forum for the 2010 Planner swap in calendar 2. So run over and sign up.

Free Hand Made Paper Bow Cutting File

I have posted another free file on the Designing With Die Cuts site. It is a cutter file for making the handmade bows that have been on the internet. Previously I have made them using a standard paper cutter and that takes some time so I decided this year I was going to turn it into a file for our Electronic Digital Cutters so you can pick up this freebie here. I have also made a video showing you how I put them together but it is generally the same as the others except this one is a tad smaller to accomodate the cutters out there. This file is available in AI,GSD,KNK,SCUT,SVG and WPC so go on over and check it out. I will be posting another freebie later this week but thought I would share this one with you now..

Here is a pic of my finished bow..

Enjoy and thanks for stopping by..
