I am up to my ears in projects - trying to get things finished to post for the rest of the week (a new system?). I did want to remind you that the free shipping at Dover Publications on orders of $25 or more ends today, September 17th. There are many items on sale in the warehouse sale category and the usual amount you need for free shipping is $50 so it is a good chance to try them out if you don't already have any of the Dover books and image CDs.

I have had several requests asking how I take images I buy (or get as freebies in the Dover weekly sampler) and turn them into cutting files. I explained how to do this last month - here is a LINK to the post. I was working with the Silhouette Studio software but you can use other programs to create a file (SCAL, MTC, etc.).
One more shopping tip for Tim Holtz fans. Blitsy posted Tim Holtz Distress inks, reinkers, and lots of Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous stamp sets for sale today. I have gradually built up my collection of inks at their reduced prices ($3.25 for ink pads - $3.75 for the limited edition seasonals - and $2.99 for reinkers - $3.25 for the limited edition seasonals). I just can't resist complete sets once I get started on a product! They also have quite a few of Alterations dies (some have sold out) and some grungeboard sets.
If you have never shopped at Blitsy, it is a free membership discount craft supplies site with new offers every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Items often sell out quickly (get "blitsed") so it is a good idea to check in the morning on the days that new items are added. The sales last a week or until the items are sold out. I appreciate it when you use my link to join Blitsy (it's free). Once you join, you can get a referral code and earn credits for future purchases when you refer your friends and family.

We are having some fabulous fall weather - it's especially nice because the leaves haven't fallen yet so you can enjoy the fresh air and not have to think about all of the raking!
