Home again!

Home from Kansas City! The Provo Craft/Costco Road Show was a success. In fact all the shows have been such a success and have exploded that Provo Craft has outsourced the program to a 3rd party. That means that I have done my job very well. The whole thing was a pilot program to see how it would be received and the response has been overwhelming! Costco Stores all over the country have put in requests for Cricut demonstrations to be in their stores so many more people are being trained to do this and keep it an ongoing success. I'm very proud to have been part of the beginning of this and am in the process of re-defining my level of involvement. I love my Cricut and am excited about the possibilities this poses for Provo Craft. Also, Provo Craft is releasing the CricutCake right before Mother's Day. It is a food safe cricut that can be used with fondant, fruit roll ups, hard cheeses, gum paste, and many more food stuffs. It will work with all Cricut Cartridges! Can you imagine what your cakes and cupcakes can look like??? I can just see the cute little bug on the Stretch Your Imagination cartridge on top of a cake sitting under a large flower welcoming spring!!! So, I've looking forward to the release of this new member of the Cricut family!

Keep looking here for more updates and info on Provo Craft products!!

Kansas city

Tomorrow I head out to Overland Park Kansas for a 10 day run at Costco to demonstrate the Cricut. I've got lots of new ideas for these 10 cartridges so I'm excited to get busy. Hopefully we won't have an earthquake like we did her in Chicago early this morning! I slept through it but Jeff and Brittany felt it. I wonder what reaction Rosie had and whether she got a bit crazy before hand.

Planning the April crop with Karen. It will be the weekend of April 16, 17 and 18th and lots of fun. I am going to be there the whole time because it was too hard trying to juggle a crop and the show in Mt. Prospect. I love the crops, they are a lot of fun.

About a year ago my friend Corinna and I were planning a trip to Canada to deliver scrapbooks to a woman named Anita. Our yahoo group rallied and made these books for her daughter. Creating Keepsakes Magazine included this story in their February issue in '09. Corinna and I had a great trip and Anita loved the books. I got a phone call today to tell me that Anita lost her fight with cancer. It's good to know that the scrapbooks we did will be something her children will be able to look at for many years to come. I hope her family finds comfort in the books.
