The title of this blog has a lot of C's and Computers is one of them

Well, so far we have talked about crafts, what a Craftini is, and I have posted plenty of coupons, but we haven't talked about computers yet.


I search the net anytime I need to find an answer for anything. As you well know, searches can bring up LOTS of websites. And we click and click and click. Trying to find our answers. When we do that our browsers keep temporary files of all the website we go to on our local hard drive. When there is too many, it starts slowing down our PC's. Not to mention the Cookies (and not the good kind) that are loaded on our hard drive from many of these sites.


There is freeware out there called CCleaner (http://www.ccleaner.com/). CCleaner is a freeware system optimization, privacy and cleaning tool. It removes unused files from your system - allowing Windows to run faster and freeing up valuable hard disk space. It also cleans traces of your online activities such as your Internet history. Additionally it contains a fully featured registry cleaner. But the best part is that it's fast (normally taking less than a second to run) and contains NO Spyware or Adware! :) (description straight from the website)


I use this program at home and at work. So, go check it out and happy cleaning!! :)

Bitten By The Bug - From My Kitchen Phone Challenge

Ok, I have really been into to card making with the holiday's here. So, I have been out surfing the web and found some great blogs on Cricut tips and tricks and card making ideas. If your into card making you have probably already heard of the site, Bitten By The Bug. http://regina-bittenbythebug.blogspot.com/ They have weekly card challenges with the different Cricut cartridges. The design team puts out some great cards!

I figured I would give it a try this week. So, here is my card:



The colors didn't come out so great in the picture. I might try and take a better picture later. I will be working on some holiday cards and should have them posted this week.
