Cleaning Cricut Cutting Mats

I don't know about you but I had heard using a baby wipe to clean your cutting mat works wonders! So, last night, I was using my cricut machine and the paper started to slide while it was cutting. So, I thought I would try the baby wipe idea and to be honest alot of dirt came off (sounds disgusting, makes me wonder about the rest of my house). Anyway, I tried it and I have been using the same mat a few more times and the paper is not sliding. It seems to have a little more stickness to it. Don't get me wrong, I do have some brand new mats here to use or sell but I am cheap and I thought I would give it a try. If you have tried this and it works let me know. I have also heard using the 2 way glue by ZIG works. Have you tried the glue marker? Let me know how it goes or if you have any other tips to prolonging  the life of  your cricut cutting mat.

Mother's Day Give Away

Now that NSD is over what are your plans for Mother's Day? Will you be spending time with your family, have the day off and your family wait on you hand and foot? Read a book? or scrapbook all day without interruption? Hmm, I think I like the last one but I would want to have dinner with my family. We usually have steaks on the grill and strawberry shortcake (my favorite) and then I can watch everyone do dishes and all the cooking and cleaning up. Sometimes, I feel a little guilty but it usually doesn't last to long. So, those are my plans. What are yours? Leave a comment and your name will be entered into a drawing. You could win a prize - a cricut spatula!

National Scrapbook Day Celebration

How did you celebrate NSBD? Well, I had a lot of journaling and titling to do. But, I finished Christmas and some other pages of my kids. I still have several more pages to complete. I am glad for my good friends who showed up to scrapbook with me. Prizes, Happy Mother's Day chocolate lollipops, chocolate covered strawberries (they were a big hit) and chocolate covered pretzels were among some of the delicious goodies we shared today. My good husband cooked chicken on the grill for us for dinner - wasn't that nice? Even after he rode his dirt bike. And I certainly wouldn't have a nice big place to scrap if it wasn't for him. So, a big thank you goes to Scott for helping NSBD be a hit at our place.
