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~

    I know about all the things you have and am hoping you come out with an iPod cartridge checklist app

  2. Ooo looks like a great prize. I have been following you for quite awhile. First on Christmas with the Cricut. I come mostly for the Cricut projects. I love mine, but I know I don’t use it to its fullest. So I’m always searching out ways to do just that.
    Thanks for all you do Joy.
    Hugs, Jessica

    YEAH!!!! I can’t believe that I am #1..Okay…the most things I have learned from Super Joy is that the cricut is nothing to be afraid of…I can do it!! second, the cameo is more userfriendly than I would have ever imagined….since I am not tech savy…and 3rd is that she is the GREATEST CRAFTY ENABLER to have in your back pocket when your trying to convince your other half that YES, YOU DO NEED THAT OTHER MACHINE…just because it does something more different than the other machine that you swore you would not need another one for years to come;)….all in all…WE {HEART} SUPER JOY!!!…thanks for the chance to win:):)

  4. Hi Joy!
    What is not to like about Joy’s Life???!!! I love “hovering” over the photos for your fun silly comments! I love to get new ideas on how to use cartridges, the tips you offer and just ideas for those times I struggle with “WHAT TO MAKE NOW”???
    I do know about the design team blog and try to remember to visit it often as well as I know about your great stamps and DVD’s. I don’t have an android phone (or any kind of smart phone) so I can’t do anything like that. Your cartridge checklist is SO helpful!
    Keep up the great work …and keep giving us more!! We are not greedy!!
    Thanks so much!

  28. Artsyviray says:

    I love just about everything you have here.. but I especially love how you introduced me to the Silhouette and that you work with both Silhouette and Cricut.

  29. RachelMarie says:

    I love the different tools that you try out on here. I’ve learned about quite a few things on here that I didn’t know were around.

  30. I like coming because your site has so much variety. Your projects and posts cover so much!

  31. dkmorrison says:

    I visit from time to time getting ideas and watching tutorials about cricut and gypsy. I love all of your ideas and crafts.

  32. Hi Joy, i love your site, Love your videos/tutorials. You make crafting fun. I especially like your comments on your photos. You usually get me to chuckle. Keep up the good work, Mary Beth c.

  33. I love your site because it’s always fun. I’ve downloaded your cricuit cart checklist and find it very helpful. I’m a person that sees all kinds of things I like, but when I see them again, I can’t remember if I’ve already purchased them. I’ve purchased the Vinylology DVD and can’t believe how many things I didn’t know the cricuit could do. Absolutely love it. You and your staff come up with such innovative and easy items and cards and the stamps are so darn cute. Love coming here every day.


  34. I get your emails and just love your blog!! I love how you are upbeat and have a GREAT sense of humor!! I really enjoyed all the posts on your favorite projects, I am on a very tight budget so when I can afford which isn’t to often to buy something for crafting I like to hear how someone like you mlikes the items… if that made sense 🙂
    I know about your cricut list and products and I hope to get the vinyl dvd in the future!!!
    Have a happy crafty day!!!

  35. I really like your vynal projects. I only have a cricut machine and no scals or the other program for it. I still get a lot of ideas from you and your design team. You also help me with my Yudu machine. So that is why I visit your web page. Thanks Angel [email protected]

  36. I started coming to your site for the info you provide about the Cricut machine and cricut projects. I haven’t used my machine that much and probably should get it out more often, so reading your blog inspires me to do that. The Cricut checklist is very helpful. Love the way you write your blog with humor.

  37. sterlingpiccolo says:

    I like learning about new products and other crafty tricks I didn’t know existed. I have a Silhouette machine so the vinyl posts are also useful!
    -Erica K

  38. Joy, I love your humor, how you are so real with us about crafting and how you teach effectively. I Love all the cricut projects and tricks you share. Thank you for all that you do!!

  39. ladybugCarrie says:

    I come to your site for ideas and inspiration! I love that you don’t concentrate on just one thing – you talk about different machines, techniques, etc. I do know about your cartridge checklist (that you so kindly update when new carts come out), your Android App (can’t wait for the iPhone app), your stamps (I have a few sets that I love), your DVD and the design team. Thank you for being an inspiration to all of us! 🙂

  40. Ok where do i start, one Joy you crack me up and make me smile every time. You remind me so much of my bff. But aside from that I love your ideas. Sometime im just in a funk and cant figure out what i want to do. So I come to joys life. I always find something to inspire me. I have several sets of your stamps and find they are the best i own.

  41. karenpagedave says:

    I love seeing your Silhouette projects. I got a Cameo for Christmas and LOVE it! It beats my “other” machine hands down!!! Anyway, I like seeing what you do with yours and I always love your projects… plus you bust me up 🙂

  42. Victoria89 says:

    I love to get inspired to try new things and that’s why I always end up on your blog. You come up with things that I would never think to try and it inspires me to try them myself. I’m fairly new to crafting and sometimes find I end up doing variations of the same thing so I love to check out other ideas and it ends up making me more creative in my crafts. Thanks for the chance to win!

  43. Oh, Superjoy, let me count the ways! I like your style, Kiddo! Your blog is smart AND funny! I find your tutorials to be some of the best around…very detailed explanations which helps folks like me. I like your craft tool comparisons and have referred others to them. I am a Cricut person and will stay one because of what I have invested in cartridges and that is why and how I came to follow you. And, although it seems other die cutting machines are calling your name now, I still return daily to see what crafty ideas you are sharing generously. You have encouraged me by both your blog and DVD in using vinyl to decorate my home, crafts and car. My sweet little granddaughter now has bunches of flowers and an owl or two gracing her room, thanks to you! And last but not least, let’s not forget Zippy! He’s just too cute!

    Thank you for all you do, Joy. You help start my day with a smile. That’s the best.

  46. What brings me to Joy’s Life… Well let me see, there are so many reasons just to name a few, I love your videos and while looking at them I love to hover over them just to see the little comments you make. They are so funny. I love to see everything you come up with. I own some of of your stamp sets and love them. I learned how to etch glass by looking at your Vinylology DVD. I learned alot from that DVD. Of course I love when Zippy is around. Hope to see an IPHONE App for cartridge updates. What brings me to this site- BECAUSE YOU ARE SUPER JOY!!!!!!!!
