Need to find a turkey......

So I just learned about this awesome new site called Cricut Search and I ♥ it! Thank you to Sarah at for telling us all about it. Not sure what it is? Well let me tell you. will save you time when working on your scrapbooking, card making or paper crafts. You will no longer have to flip through all of your Cricut handbooks or cheat sheets to find the perfect image to complete your crafting project. Just type it into the search box and we will show you all of the choices you have.
I couldn't figure out which of my cartridges had turkeys on them and didn't feel like searching through all of my handbooks. So I went to Cricut Search and typed in "turkey" in the search bar and it brought up all the carts that have a turkey on them. I never realized how many of my cartridges had turkeys on them! This site is definitely a life saver!

You can also find Cricut Search on Facebook here.

Cara Putman's Stars in the Night Contest**EXPIRED**

I'm so excited about this giveaway. While I've never met Cara, I have the honor of knowing her mom, sister, and sister-in-laws that live here in North Platte! I can't wait to read this book!

The grand prize consists of several DVDs of Cara's favorite classic movies, popcorn, cracker jacks, a signed copy of Stars in the Night, and if we reach over 200 entries, a copy of each of Cara's other six World War II based romances. These DVDs are special because they include some of Cara's favorite movies of all time. Bringing Up Baby and The Philadelphia Story are great romantic comedies, both with Cary Grant and Katherine Hepburn and Jimmy Stewart joins them in Philadelphia Story. Just last week, they rewatched one of Cara's favorite musicals: Singing in the Rain, which you'll also find in these collections along with Easter Parade and Meet Me in St. Louis. And then you can't do better for dramas than Casablanca and Mrs. Miniver. For the final set, Cara's adding Frank Capra's collection. You'll have hours of wonderful classics to watch.

Five first prizes: a copy of all Cara's WWII books: that means winners receive a copy of Stars in the Night, Canteen Dreams, Sandhill Dreams, Captive Dreams, A Promise Kept, A Promise Born, and A Promise Forged. That's plenty of World War II era romances and romantic suspense to fill your summer with reading.

Five second prizes: a signed copy of Stars in the Night.

So how do you enter?

Just visit Cara Putman's blog for more details!
