An invitation to join my Cricut Design Space facebook group

I want to invite all my blog followers who have purchased the Cricut Explore (or are thinking about it) to come join the Facebook group that Paulette and I have opened for Cricut Design Space

The group has only been opened for a short while and already we have a great group of members who really embrace the "Crafter Helping Crafter" philosophy. You won't find anyone taking advantage of the group members by pushing their own agenda, YouTube channel or Patreon page.

What you will find is a community of Cricut users willing to help others by answering questions and/or posting projects and tutorials. There are so many talented crafters who use a Cricut and they are willing to freely share their time, talents and files.

And, it doesn't matter how much you know! We have members who just purchased the Explore to those that have had it for months; to those who are still learning about it and haven't yet purchased one. We have members who have been Cricut users for a long time and those who are new to Cricut. We also have some very helpful Cricut Team members in our group including the CEO!

So if you want to learn how to use Design Space, the powerful software program that runs the Explore, come join us! Here's the link to the group:

Hello to my 1002 followers...

Way back in December 2007 when I created this blog, Design Studio had just been released. I started writing tutorials for DS in an attempt to help my fellow Cricut Lovers get to know and love this design program.

I celebrated each and every new follower to my blog. My first 100, then 200, then 500.....

Come forward to today and I have finally cracked 1000!!!

Sad thing is, I no longer update this blog as I've created a new blog called The Non-Crafty Crafter....

So..... would you be so kind as to come over to my new home and follow me there? I promise I'll still help you with your DS problems if you have any!!!! Just click the big green button. :)
