I can’t remember what brought me to your site in the first place. But what kept me coming back was your sense of humor and down to earth personality! I haven’t been around in a while, but I’ll be coming back to see what you do with your new Zing since I intend to buy one in the near future. Thanks a lot for the giveaway!

I first found you looking for a cricut cartridge list, several years back when I first bought a cricut. And have been following ever since! I love the list to keep track of what I have. Love the videos, your directions are easy always clear, and love the variety of projects. But I would say it is your writing style that brings me back the most, much like some of the blogs I follow that are just for ‘reading’ and entertainment. My bonus is that then there IS a project as well. How can I loose!

Note to everyone who left comments:  When I asked the questions above, I was trying to see if I was doing a good job sharing information about those things.  Instead of just getting answers to those questions, I got the most wonderful and kind comments.  I never expected to hear such nice things.  Thank you all for taking the time to respond and for your thoughtful and generous words to me.  You truly touched my heart.  Thank you, thank you, thank you. ~Joy~

    Gosh! I have been following you for so long I forgot how I got here but I believe it was for the Cricut Cart List. I love seeing your crafts and cards and am just too scared to try the vinyl projects! Thank you for all your amazing shares and ideas! Now, I hope this doesn’t self-destruct in 5 seconds! HA!

  6. I first found your site because of your cricut tutorials and projects. And I recently bought a Cameo so love your tutorials on that machine as well. I am familiar with most everything on your site and just purchased some stamps and the DVD. Thanks so much!!!

    Thanks for a chance to win this great organizer. I first came to this site becuase of the cricut and your vinylology DVD, which is GREAT. I now look to see what you have done with the silhouette.

  8. My husband bought me your vinylology DVD for Chrismas, which really helped me learn to cut vinyl on my Cricut. Love your blog – especially Zippy, and your tutorials.

  9. Krafty Kim says:

    I found this site from Memory Miser while looking at your stamps for sale there, and now this is one of the first sites I visit when on the internet!! Most of the time, I’m just checking out what’s goin’ on, then there have been times I’ve searched the site for info. on using vinyl or the Gypsy.

    And yes, I love your Cricut checklist and have a copy of your Vinylology DVD. I’ve even bought some vinyl from the link you have to Expressions. I also love the Design Team and go to that blog next!! And I have to say your good clean humor also keeps me coming back!

    I try to join all your super givaways and have won once! Thanks for your generosity.

  10. I think I found you original from a blog hop. I signed up to receive your posts because I liked the projects you did. The area I live in is a bit craft starved so I love to see the ideas others come up with.

  11. CathyinMN says:

    I’ve been checking out your blog almost daily for over a year now — love your sense of humor and all of the great craft ideas you have for us. I got your Vinylology DVD because I liked so many of your vinyl projects. Keep up the great posts. Thanks for all you teach us.

  12. I found your site after watching one of your YouTube videos. Your unique projects is the reason I keep coming back. The cricut check list Is rather nice and you have great stamp sets. Thanks for all your creativity.

    I started coming to Joy’s Life for the cricut cartridge list (I love that list) and so do all my Cricut friends! I usually come to look around…I guess you could say my crafty mission is inspiration! I know about all the things you mentioned and really appreciate your creativity. My favorite thing about Joy’s Life is the positive vibes I feel when I come here. Thank you for the giveaway.

  15. I came for inspiration and kept coming back for the ideas. And the jokes. And all the thinking outside the box. I check in daily, and am never disappointed. Love Zippy, too!

  16. sandrarena says:

    I love all of your ideas but started following daily when I purchased your vinyl DVD and loved it. I am always looking for inspiration and never know when your idea will spark something fun for me to translate into my needs. I also love your funny little comments attached to your photos. You always make me smile. Thank you and keep it coming.

  17. I love to come for inspirations on all kinds of projects. I am a big recycler/repurposer of any household item I can get my hands on so I love to see how you take old things and make them new again. I am a big scrapbooker (not so much into cardmaking) and I have been loving seeing the design team work. You do a great job! Mary Jo

  18. I follow you and have heard of all of these. I love your writing style, I always get a chuckle while reading it. Thanks for all the tips and tricks you are always giving us!

  19. SarahEliza19 says:

    I actually found your blog through YouTube. I watched your video on how to make a Cricut “fake”. Since then I have come back for a good laugh, inspiration and the design team and their great ideas! Makes me wish I had more time to be super crafty!
    I love the cartridge checklist. I like to bring a copy when I go craft shopping, and your stamps have been at the top of my wishlist!

    hello Joy…when I first came across your blog, it was to print out the cart check list. I saw it on someone else’s page on FB but I don’t remember whose. but when I got to your blog, I was so intrigued by all of your stuff! the ideas, the organizing, the step by step help..the pics and don’t forgot the Super Joy avatar! I thought that was just the cutest! thanks so much for all the ideas and help and inspiration that you give to us!1 glad I found you…but more glad that I joined and stayed! keep it coming and I will keep coming back! 😀

  21. I forget why I came to your blog in the first place, but it was probably for the cartridge checklist. Once here, the ideas and projects keep me coming back. Love your videos.

  22. ChelleBelle says:

    Aside from just reading your humor, to get me thru a rough patch, you are so fabulously creative & I just soak that stuff in like a dry sponge!!! I also do use the Cart check list APP!!! You are BRILLIANT!!!!! I don’t own your DVD yet but I will, I usually get what I want! I am addicted to your funnies held hostage in a photo to be freed w/ a mouse hover! Like I said, Buh-rill-ee-ant!!!!

  23. Well who could resist coming for that wonderful fun personality you have! Besides that I come because of your projects you do. I enjoy your video tutorials, so fun to watch and learn. Do we get to see more video tutorials? I have learned a lot from you and have so enjoyed your personality, you have picked me up on some pretty low days. TY

  24. I first came to your sight for the cricut cartridge checklist. I’ve stayed because I like to look around and get inspired.

  25. The thing I love best about Joyslife, are the awesome videos! When I first started learning to use my cricut, this is where I came to find out how to use it.
    I also really love the cricut cartridge checklist, so handy!
    Thanks for all you do Joy!

  26. I come for all the great craft ideas and I also like the storage tips–like the sugar canister for twine. I also check out the DT blog for more great ideas.

  27. I love the ideas I love the videos and any storage tips and I love your sense of humor. You are always making me laugh and with 6 kids I need that!
    God bless,

    Hi Joy!
    Have an awesome, blessed day!

  29. I love the cartridge list and have the app on my phone, it has kept me from double purchases many times. Love all your videos. Thanks for all the great give aways you do.

  31. Wow, so many questions. 🙂 I have been following your site every since I happened upon a link in pinterest that lead me to you! Must have been fate or something! I get your emails everyday and usually stop by to see what’s going on, the new products, new projects and of course, the blog hops and give-aways. I actually won the St. Pat’s blog hop and am excitedly waiting for the arrival of your stamps. I love my cricut, but use it mostly with my computer (I was one of the lucky ones who purchased Make The Cut prior to the Provocraft lawsuit that ended the two items working together) I attend crops and host monthly crops at my church as a fundraiser.

    I attended my first mini meet last month and will attend a MEGA MEET in May. I love NEW stuff.

    Your site is a blast. Always up beat and comical. I really enjoy visiting you. Keep it up and thanks for the give-aways.

  32. RichStampin says:

    ok, I do not see my post so I am entering it again, I go to your blog regularly for the cricut app, cartridge list and videos for ideas and something to spark my creative side. Thank you for allowing me this opportunity.

  33. I love your upbeat humor and honest reviews. the videos are always entertaining, always making me laugh. Sometimes I come running to Joy’s Life for the cartridge list but mostly to see the wonderful project ideas. I know about the vinyl DVD, stamps and now about the design team! Thanks for sharing all your crafty inspiration!
