Happy Thanksgiving everyone!! I hope you all had a safe and joyful holiday with everyone you love. We had a great day today and ate way to much yummy food. We started out going to Jeremys moms house. She lives 1/2 mile from us, so it was nice to have a short drive this year vs. 5 hours last year. She always makes a delicious spread and this year was no different. She made a new cheesecake dessert that was super delicious. After leaving her house we headed to my side of the family. My grandma isn’t doing so well…she has battled cancer for a while now and things aren’t looking so well for her. She looked amazing tonight. Her spirits are high and I’m so glad that we we’re able to make it to dinner. Most of the family was there and the food was awesome. (I love to eat….Thanksgiving is on top of my favorites list.) My step-mom Kim and sisters Chelsea and Lindsea cooked most of the food. It was totally different then what we had at Pam’s house, so it was nice to have a variety. It was so good. I will be hitting Kim up for a few of her recipes!! All in all we had a great day. I’m so glad I had the chance to hang out with my grandma. I really wanted to get some pictures with everyone, but we were all so busy talking that it totally slipped my mind. I enjoy spending time with that side of my family and really should do it more.

We have one more Thanksgiving tomorrow. I’m going to Grannys early to help her get it ready. I’m trying to really help this year, so eventually I can take over. 🙂 That’s exciting and scary to me all in one.

I’m so thankful for so much in my life. I have the best husband and kids that anyone could ever imagine. I love them so much. I have a roof over my head. I am thankful for that every time I take the dogs outside and I’m freezing!! We have great friends and family that I’m thankful we could enjoy lunch/dinner together today. I am so thankful for all our DCC contributors. We are getting better and better everyday and it has so much to do with these ladies. They are so talented and love what they do. I don’t know how we got so lucky finding them, but I know I am grateful for everything they do.

There’s so much more that I could ramble on about…but I’m so tired. I can barely keep my eyes open. Again, Happy Thanksgiving. Thank you to everyone who takes time to read my posts. I am also thankful for you. What are you most thankful for this year? I’d love to know.

Here is the latest update on the website. Now is a great time to get the new low price and give us your input. We’d like to know what YOU want to see in next months issue! Help us, help you!!

Our Readers Have Spoken, and We’re Listening!

Hello! Here we are 5 issues in to publishing Die Cut Crazy. In the last few months we have received a ton of good input from readers via email and through reviews. I wanted to take a moment to address some of the issues, and let you know what we are doing to improve Die Cut Crazy. A suggestion we get a lot is about the page count being low. A big reason why our page count is say, 50 pages, as opposed  to 100 or more is because we haven’t included pages and pages of advertisements. We will introduce advertising in the future, but our intention is to always let the content outweigh the ads. With that said, we are constantly working on getting more contributors and creating more content to increase the volume in each issue. It’s our goal to give you a satisfying experience when you open up an issue of Die Cut Crazy.

Another common suggestion we get is about the issue/subscription price. This seems to go hand in hand with the size of the issue suggestion. Again we are listening and put your satisfaction and experience first. As of today the new price plan is as follows:

Die Cut Crazy Subscription available: 

A single issue for $1.99 (non-subscription) – was $3.99

1-month subscription for $0.99, automatically renewed until canceled. – was $2.99

3-month subscription for $2.99, automatically renewed until canceled. – was $6.99

1-year subscription for $9.99, automatically renewed until canceled.  – was $24.99

If you are already subscribed then your next payment will reflect the new plan.

Another suggestion we often get is making the magazine available on more than just the iPad. The iPhone version of the app is now in testing and should be ready for release in the near future. There are also plans of releasing to other tablet devices eventually as well.

We are also taking this opportunity to give the magazine a bit of a facelift, and add some new sections of content. We started DCC because we love crafting and die cutting, and we wanted to connect with other crafters and have a place to share their projects as well as our own. Please don’t hesitate to leave a comment or send us an email with suggestions, or to inquire about being a contributor. If you’re not happy, we’re not happy!

Thanks to everyone who has supported DCC so far! Happy die cutting!
