News and Sales Bulletins

First, I'd like to apologize for my extended absence.  Apparently The Boy brought a bug home from school, and it hit me even harder than him.  We spent a few days on the couch together, he is as obnoxious as ever, and I am finally finding enough energy to do more than struggle through the day!

I don't have a project to share today, unfortunately.  Maybe the energy will stick around long enough today for me to finish a layout I have in progress, and I can share it tomorrow!  However, what I do want to share with you are a plethora of sales and special offers I've received in the last few days, as well as a bit of news which I imagine most of you who care will have already heard, but just in case...  Anyway, on with the fun stuff first!

Lawsuit News
Most of you affected by this have probably already heard the news, but I wanted to make sure everyone is aware of this.  If you own a Cricut and use third party software with it, you will want to be aware of some legal news regarding Make The Cut and Sure Cuts A Lot.  You can read the full details at Scrapbook Update, but the short story is that ProvoCraft is suing Sure Cuts A Lot, and Make The Cut has already settled with PC.

My personal views are such that I will continue to use my copy of MTC with my Expression, simply because I have a newer machine that I can continue to update while leaving my E update-free.  When that machine dies, I will be researching alternate cutters from other manufacturers.  I love my ProvoCraft products, but I also love the flexibility allowed by being able to cut images from other sources.  I respect PC's rights to use legal means to protect their products as they desire, and I will not join in on the boycott that several have joined.  I knew when I purchased my machines that they were cartridge-based only; I just didn't know there was another option available.

I encourage everyone affected to read the articles for themselves, and make their own decision regarding their personal situation.

    SDU instructors Yahoo group --> saw/visited your CTMH site --> hopped to your blog --> started looking at post categories. And here I am!
    THANK YOU for the PC lawsuit info. I am trying to decide between MTC and SCAL. Yes, I knew as you did. Yes, I figured PC would do something to combat the 3rd party software. Yes, I will void my warranty and risk corporate wrath!
    ~~ Off to check out some more MTC & SCAL posts!
