I just want to tell everyone THANK YOU and I appreciated all, well most, of the comments you guys left when I posted about possibly not posting projects anymore. After I posted the analogy of cooking a dinner then it seemed those who didn't understand before suddenly understood where I was coming from in my original post.
I actually don't think I could ever completely stop coming here and letting my fingers do their dance across the keyboard allowing words appear on the screen, but I was seriously contemplating not posting projects anymore due to the time it takes, etc...but you guys already know that. I have come to the conclusion that my blog is a big part of me now and it is an outlet for me to put my thoughts, feelings and experiences I have in life to share with others. I do tend to get more comments on my "commentary" posts than my projects and that actually just cracks me up. I told Linda one time "I can spend hours doing a project and then posting it and get like two comments but let me post about how I bought some Scott butt wipes and I get like 60 freakin comments!", at which we both laughed. I have received feedback from many readers saying "I feel like I know you" and probably if you met me you would kinda know me because I pretty much write the way I talk *okie thinks she does reduce the bad words more in her writing than when she is talking*.
After this past week I find myself wanting to continue with the posting of projects, not only because so many people understood where I was coming from but also because now that I am using Make The Cut and being able to share files once more that people can use. I haven't been this excited about posting projects in a few years *okie looks at that and feels it was a long drawn out sentence but decides she has no desire to break out her knowledge of correct grammar and such from her English major days during her early college years*. I was in and out of the Make The Cut forum the last few days getting help on how to convert my MTC files to SVG so people who have other progams could use the files. I can't even begin to tell you how awesome those folks are in that forum! I think I did finally figure it out and it might be a pain on a few and if it is I might not convert the file...it will depend on my time and mood.
How to express my excitement and love for this MTC program is beyond my ability right now. I am learning something new every day and it is just getting better and better! I did have to go in and download the newer version to be able to properly convert MTC files to SVG files but the folks in the forum were wonderful in providing me with the information to do so and I am still able to have the version that uses my Cricut to cut.
Oh and another thing I will share with you today before I leave to do other things *okie grimaces at the idea of having to finish her progress notes but smiles slightly at the reminder that she can play around with some designs when she gets done*....I am getting a Pazzles! I know many of you know from my Facebook posts but thought I would share with those who aren't on Facebook. The great thing is that I have my newer version of MTC ready to cut with the Pazzles once it gets here.
