THIS blog thing sure takes time…

OK so I have been putting this blog together and trying to figure out how everything works. First I was on Blgr. but then that presented frustrations for me because I wanted to customize the templates and it was just getting too frustrating to figure out ways around it. So here I am on word press and I Love it. So far so good. (knock on wood…knock!knock!) I’m sure it would have went a lot faster if I wasn’t so fussy about things. Now I have to figure out how to add a file to my blog. Wish me luck…here goes nothing…

OK so I am still up and awake and as I look at my family soundly and peacefully sleeping jealousy comes over me. (sigh) I wish I could just lay my head on a pillow and be out in seconds. I tend to be more alert at night and I am not sure why. I just read somewhere that it’s actually a condition where people are most productive starting at 2:00 a.m I can’t remember what they called it, but maybe that’s what I have. Well I will try to lay down once again and see if I can drift off this time if not I will be back playing on the computer.

Acronyms around the Cricut circuit

If you are new to the Cricut world you might wonder about some of the “words” you hear people saying SCAL or .cut or CDS and you might think are they speaking in code or what? Well here are some of those “words” which are really acronyms for some of the terms floating around there:

  • CDS = Cricut Design Studio
  • DS = another term for design studio
  • SCAL = Sure Cuts A Lot
  • .cut file = this is a file created with the CDS :) (see above)
  • .scut file  = file created with Sure Cuts A Lot
  • SVG = stands for Scalable Vector Graphics ( technology for rendering complex Web graphics and page layouts)
  • Inkscape = a freeware program that is a Vector Graphics Editor, similar to Adobe Illustrator, that strives to be SVG Compliant.
