Blog revamp

I'm thinking about doing a major overhaul here on my tiny blog. I really like making mostly. I spend a lot of time (too much time) looking at cards that other people make and I think it's high time I started posting some of my own creations. So I am going to give this a try. I will do my level best to take good photos of my cards and post them here. No videos, though. I'm not ready for that yet.

Give me some time to get my act together (figure out how to post pictures here) and please wish me luck!

Northridge Publishing Giveaway.

Northridge Publishing has a nice giveaway package on their blog today: features one crafting product a day at an unbelievable price! Everything is discounted up to 90% off retail price, so the goods go quick. A different steal is posted each day, 7 days a week. Quantities are limited and products sell fast. Hurry, when the steal of the day is gone; it is gone.
Now, maybe you have gotten your steal, but realize you are out of some basics. Need some more washi? A little twine? Or maybe you need some supplies for an upcoming party or home organization project? Crafty Basics are the solution to all of those problems! This is a new line of products that you will ALWAYS be able to steal – though they may be out of stock every now and again, they will be staples in their warehouse (and in your crafty stashes).  Today’s prize package is loaded with lots of fabulous Crafty Basics, and has a retail value of $120.00!"

Here's a link to the Northridge Publishing blog.

Christmas cards in September!

I know. I've finally gone completely and utterly insane. But last year when I was sticking stamps on holiday cards on Christmas Eve I swore I wouldn't do that ever again. So when Shutterfly sent me a coupon code for 10 free cards I jumped on it. Here's a sneak peak of my design.

What do you think? I'm especially proud of the grumpy one. Trying to keep it real this year.

Just because I've ordered them, though, doesn't mean they'll get put in the mail in time. Check back with me in December when I'm frantically running around the house saying, "I know I put them somewhere!"
