Hello Newsletter Subscribers,

I am so happy that this past week when on without incident…referring to terrorism.  So, we can all breathe a sigh of relief and move on with our lives.  My heart goes out to all who have suffered as a result of 911 and I pray that there will be no more incidents to make matters worse.  We need to guard ourselves against the mental/emotional terrorism that has taken its place.  Just because it happened once does not mean that it will happen again.  So, take a deep breath and relax.  May God bless these United States of America, Israel, United Kingdom, Canada…and I could go on and on….I just want all of us to be blessed and safe…and to that I add a great big AMEN!

You will find lots of mats this week including graduated shapes.  I hesitate to call it anything else because someone will say that they copyrighted the words to describe them.  I am waiting for the day when the whole English language is copyrighted because someone used certain words in their advertising campaigns.  I believe in copyright laws when they are used appropriately, but have a hard time with them when they are abused. 

 I also added to the seasonal section in the way of Autumn.  I am so jealous of those of you who get to see this season.  It was my favorite season of the entire year.  I used to love to walk through the leaf fallen woods, breathing in that sweet scent as I went along.  So, I usually bring out all of my autumn decorating supplies and try to relive it in my memories.  Living in Florida doesn’t allow us to enjoy the bright colors of the season, so I have had to make my own autumn!

If  you have prayer requests, please send them to this address: 

In the subject area, type PRAYER REQUEST.  Do not send last names.  Only first names and brief descriptions of the situation.  God knows what is going on! :-)  I will add them to my prayer list!  I also ask that if the prayer is answered that you let me know so that we can give Him Praise!

CHAT ABOUT PAZZLES:  I wish that would all utilize this tab.  So, we will see what happens here.  I am scheduling times for your different interests to see if that will make you peek in to see what is going on…or not!

Tuesday  7 PM Eastern Time: 

I need to apologize for myself.  I got my days mixed up because my husband was on vacation.  I did show up on Wednesday because I thought that it was Tuesday.  So, if you were in the chat room, I apologize for not being there….but if you were there, I hope that you met some others involved in the newsletter…and that you had a nice time.  I will try this again this coming week!

What should we do with all of these cutting files?  Forum on how to use what we already have before collecting more!  Are we file junkies, or do we use them too?  How?  How are you organizing them so that you can find them?  That is an advantage over the cartridges…which make you are subject to their organizational strategies or lack of….but you can have easy access if you file correctly.  What are you doing to make your cutting life easier?  I see a video opportunity here.  Maybe I will show you my file system…and maybe you can show me what to do differently and vice versa!

ORDERS for WPC , PDF, SVG, and MTC files:  This feature is for those of you who need a special file.  I charge for these kinds of files.  The price would be determined by the complexity of the file. 

Also, from here on in, I am listing all free files as pdf and wpc.  If you want an svg or mtc, let me know....but I will be charging $1/file.  Most programs accept pdfs.  If I list all file formats on my website, it takes way too long and takes away from the quantity and quality of the designs that I want to post in the future.  This will encourage you to learn how to import pdf if you don't already know how.  One person said that she didn't know how to use pdf for svg.....well....I made a tutorial on how to do this and it is listed on the site under VIDEOS.

Videos:  Nothing new this week.  If you have any ideas for videos, be sure to let me know!

Please send ALL correspondence to the IzzaBoutChuToo@yahoo  email address.  My Opal777 email address is a personal one.  I have an elderly mother who ails from time to time...and I need that one kept open for personal communication.  Thank you for understanding in advance.  :-)

HAPPY SCRAPPING!!  See you next week!
