Provocraft Promos & Rewards Points

A couple weeks back Michaels had a sale on Cricut carts. I bought 4 that I wanted and had been waiting for: Wild Card, Life is a Beach, Celebrations and Lyrical Letters.

A few days later I got an email from Provocraft offering a few cart with the purchase of 4 from Michaels. I'm still waiting for this one, but in the meantime, I've gotten "Daisy Chain" from my rewards points on Tuesday. It's a simple cartridge with only two options: letters with a daisy between each, and dots between the letters. I'll use it but it wouldn't have been something I would have purchased retail.

I also took part in the "Buy 2 carts, and get a Jukebox and markers free" with one payment. That also came on Tuesday. I've been checking out the Jukebox, but haven't opened the markers yet. Don't know what I'd actually use them for. I'll have to think about this. The carts I got in this deal are Jubilee & Home Decor. I have been wanting Home Decor, and Jubilee is a fun cart, too.

The last promo was a mail in one that involved buying four carts, and sending in proof, to get another cart. I should be getting the "Teardrop" cart for this one.

Now just to find the time to try out all my new toys.

One last thing. I have to laugh. Today I got an email from Provocraft telling me that a package had been mailed, and what the tracking number was. I had to wait until I got home from work to check it out, but it was the single cart that I got on Tuesday, that they were informing me of. I wrote back and told them that, too.

God provides!

I was trying to find a way to store the Circut Solutions carts, as they don't come in a "box." Well, last week I was cleaning the women's study closet at our church and found a dozen brand new VHS tape cases. (They don't do VHS tapes of the women's study sessions any more. They've gone to DVDs.) I talked to the director today, and offered to buy them from the women's study, and she said that because of all the work I do for them I could have them gratis. Yippee. Now I can organize the carts.

Mat Conditioning

I have been having trouble getting paper to stick to my mat, and mentioned that on one of the boards. Someone posted this link, which I think is great. Check out how we should "season" our mat before we use them here.
