DCM THIS weekend, June 1-3!!

For those of you going to GASC, we hope you have fun! If you want to come crop in our large space, bring your proof of GASC attendance and crop Fri-Sun for only $15.00!!

Keep watching here, on meetup.com and Facebook, we may get to open an hour or so earlier on Friday! I know that this weekend we will have a smaller group than normal but we will have a blast! The end of June will be a great time as well and we will have a vendor!

I am going to be working on my Art Journal and starting on my 2012 holiday cards :) I also got to visit a great paper company today, Clampitt Paper in Dallas. They have a sale section or paper that is being discontinued that was 50 sheets for $5.00! The paper was approx 14x22 or so. They had other paper there for $.50 a sheet. If you own a company, you can order paper for your store! Give them a visit if you need large sheets of paper.

Happy Glue Sniffin and Glitter Lickin!!

Garage Sale Information!!

Hello Everyone! Donna and I tried very hard to have a Garage Sale at the Dallas Crafters Marathon location. However, the City of Plano had several requests that we could not meet regarding Tax ID's and site permissions.

But don't fret!! Our very own Cindy Murray came in to save the day and line YOUR pockets with money!

Mark your calendars for July 7th, Saturday Garage Sale! The cost is $20.00 for sellers to reserve two 4 foot tables! Shoppers enter for free so spread the word!

South of Frankford between Campbell and Preston. Please use the REAR entrance to the building. We will try to have signs to guide you! 6001 Summerside Dr # 101, DallasTX

Link to Garage Sale Sign up!

If you have any questions, visit the Garage Sale sign up link and email Cindy Murray for further details.

Cricut Booklet Tip

I just learned this handy tip, maybe I'm late but I'm super excited!!  Visit this link, http://www.cricut.com/information/cartridge_library.aspx and click on the "View" button under the handbook column next to the cartridge you have.

This will download the book in pdf format. You can load this to your computer, your iPad/iPhone into ibooks and have them with you. I have a gypsy and *LOVE*my gypsy but I can't see detail on that tiny screen. This is why I carry my booklets with me. With this, I don't have to!!

Sharing the Cricut Love I found today <3
