OK, tonight is another No card/layout night (excuse me, morning). There is something that is sort of on my mind. It is nothing too terrible. In fact it is a good thing. I am a huge Disney fan, and the question I have to ask myself is how to get two parents, a 13 year old, myself, my sister and two babies to Disney by December? did I forget to throw in my brother, if he wants to go? I love their Christmas season, and I know it is one of the busiest times of the year, I think it will work, but I also have to be realistic. My next question is how to get a couple of Cricut cartridges of the Disney Characters cheap, without paying an arm and a leg? The first question is a cinch, if I plan on what everyone wants to do, and how much money it will take for 8 or 9 people to stay in a suite. I have taped a special from The Travel Channel called Disney on a Dime, and I have seen it new year's eve, so when they showed it again last week, I had to put it on my DVR to tape it. I am also on two yahoogroups (OK, make that three), that will help with the planning. the first group is called Mouse for Less. They have their own website,, and currently looking for more members for the yahoo group. If you are interested, a huge Disney fan, and getting ready to go to either Disneyland, Disney World, or one of the international Disney parks, I suggest you join the group. Tell Binnie and the Gang that I sent you to this site. I was on the group before, when I was planning the family's 2004 trip (minus the two babies), and had a blast. I had to let go, along with a few other Disney things, because things have gotten a little bit crazy. The other two are Disney Vacation Club groups. I will explain later what that is (Timesharing the Disney way, LOL), I may get to rent some points from someone. I had it once before, and someone rented points from me. It was wonderful getting money from someone, and they had fun at Disney, too.
The next question is not, and it is all Provocraft's fault. Why do they have to charge more for the Disney Character's cartridges? Ok, so they are license stuff, but still there is no need to charge that much for these cartridges. The reason why I want them more than ever? I have a project due by April 1st, and I either need to own a couple so I can make my pages. I already have some embellishments by Jolee's, and papers, and I can use them in a pinch, but this is a very special project. On The Mouse For Less Website, for this month, you can send in scrapbooking pages or a whole album to send to them for the children who have wishes granted to them. These children are sick, and it is sort of like Make a Wish, and they stay in this village. the organization is called Give Them the World. Well every year Mouse for Less makes scrapbooks for them, and I am trying to contribute. It is part of my make a difference campaign that Obama was talking about. I am always trying to make a difference to help out locally, so this year, why not make it countrywide, and hope that some child and their parents will be able to have memories, no matter how long they are. If you have any suggestions, let me know.
Well that is it, short and sweet. I just want to leave you with this one tip...We can all make a difference. It does not have to be huge, but you can make a difference.

Good morning, and good night.


  1. check for the disney cartridges. She has some of them for a really good deal. Otherwise her prices are not to bad on the new ones either.

  2. I will check her out. To be honest, I prefer online deals over what Mike's and Joanne's offer, which are good deals, when you find them,and it is good when you want to make a drive out of it. Since Archiver's stopped selling Cricut products in 2006 (long story, not worth a blog entry), I have been looking for good prices, and that I have two of them (baby and E), I can use a few more.
