I hope that you enjoyed the 2008 trip down "Memory Lane" as I sure did enjoy the comments! It's fun and exciting to hear what everyone's first project was :)
This post will be the first half of 2009 as there was 150 posts that year, so I'm sure I'll find tons of favorites to share with you!
This was back when I was with Charlie, and we were kitty looking, we fell in love with these two adorable kittens, Oscar and Maddison
I had a request for some other types of refrigerators, so here's a file for all your cooling needs!
And this was the first year that I made Lilly's Valentines for her Kindergarten class. The Hannah Montana cartridge wasn't out yet, so I found a stamp and went to town.. 2 1/2 hours on 10 valentines! Eeek!
And here you can download a PDF file of all the overlays for the Paper Doll Dress up cartridge. I originally did these for a friend who had just gotten her cricut.
February 2009 brought us CHA and the "rumor" of Design Studio Pro. 2 years later.. still no Design Studio Pro, but they did release the Gypsy over a year later. They also said that there would absolutely be no Paper Dolls 2 Cartridge.. Yet.. we did get Paper Dolls for Everyday (over a year later...)
Remember the Life's a Beach Fiasco?! That was the only Cartridge that I not only preordered, but paid "full" price for (I think it was like $55 or something) and I think I only used the cartridge ONCE.
And here were my Monster Truck Valentines for Lilly's Kindergarten Class
March 2009 brought us the story of Ron and his dog Kili, where we all pitched in an voted to help them win a years free of rent. Their video is still up on You Tube, so if you don't remember it or never got to check it out... head over there and do so! RON AND KILI VIDEO
They had won the public vote (with 34% of the votes) , which got them $50 credit towards rent, and then the final decision was left to a panel of 7. They did not win the grand prize, but they did get the President's Award, which was a prize that they created just for him. If I remember correctly he did get like 2 or 3 months for rent and Kili got a shopping trip at Pet Smart.
In April I had my first try of Glass Etching!
May was the launch of Let Me Show You How To Do That, which is still up and running withCapadia and Jen C It's an online class that shows you how to run Design Studio.
I also had a booth at the Bulbs to Blossoms sale in Clear Lake, where I sold many of my cards
And in June is when I first purchased the Sure Cuts A Lot program, and stated making a few SVG Files.
I hope that you have enjoyed your visit today!
