End of Summer

I haven't blogged most of the summer. It's been really busy, spending time with my new niece and goddaughter, relaxing, going for hikes, reading a lot and finding a new author I absolutely love. I wish I could say that I've been designing too, but I haven't though I do have some ideas running through my head now. Hopefully, I'll have something for you in the next couple of weeks or so.

Fall is my favorite time of year - not too hot, not too cold, football, hockey, curling, cool nights with a fire and mulled cider or hot cocoa. And it inspires me as no other season does with its profusion of color and texture and scent.

Happy Canada Day!

July 1st already? I don't know where this year has gone. But, today is a day of celebration. It's Canada Day or, as it used to be called, Dominion Day. So if you are Canadian, have a wonderful day and enjoy the fireworks tonight.

Summer Fun Doodles & Brushes

It has been a long, very long, time since I have had a free*bie for you on my blog. I had drawn these last year, sometime in the fall. But, then I got busy making other things and never offered them. These doodles were all hand-drawn and scanned in, cleaned up somewhat. They come with a Photoshop brush set. It was done in CS2. Here they are:

To download them, just click on the preview. If you do download them, please leave me a comment. Thanks!

Make a Wish(List) Contest Over

The Make a Wish(List) Contest is now over. Though I know people were aware of it, I only had 2 entrants. As a result, I have decided to give both something from their wishlists. Congratulations Erin-Joi and Sharon. I will be emailing you in the next couple of days with your gifts. Thank you so much for participating!

Make a Wish(List) Contest

The Make a Wish(List) Contest is inspired by Doris Castle's generosity, see 2 posts down for more on that. I'd like to respond to her generosity by making someone else's wish come true.

So, from now until May 31 at midnight eastern time, comment with your email and a link to your digiscrap Kaboodle wishlist or any wishlist you may have at any digiscrap store (please post all lists in one comment). On June 1, I will ask my DH to randomly pick a number (from 1 to however many responses I get). Then, I'll look at that person's wishlist(s) and pick something (or maybe more than one something) that I will purchase for that person. Designers are welcome to enter this contest too, btw. :) Please know that while the winner will be announced June 1, it may take a day or two for the item(s) to reach them.

I hope that this will inspire someone else to host a Make a Wish(List) Contest of their own, and so on...

Good luck, everyone.

Feeling Kinda Out of the Loop

So, I'm sitting here trying to figure out how it is I missed Carrie Stephens' wonderful style. I've seen (and even downloaded) some of her freebies over the years, but with the release of her Vivacious kit (currently on sale at Fishscraps), I am reawakened to her as a designer. In an industry where I often don't buy kits because they are so similar in color and theme to kits I already own, I actually added 3 or 4 kits as well as the entire Vivacious kit (kit and 2 add ons) to my Kaboodle. Her style is fresh and different, fun but not too girly.

If you haven't checked out her stuff in detail before, check her out at Fishscraps and Scrapbook Graphics because I really think that you'll like her.

Can I Say Thank You Enough?

I don't really think so. I just want to say thank you again to Doris Castle who noticed my Kaboodle wish list contained her Groupies sets and who very generously granted my wish. If you get the chance, if you have something in your own "to buy" list that's Doris's, I encourage you to visit her blog and her store.

More Sales

I knew I'd be doing more shopping and indeed, I have. Some Elemental Scraps designers have sales and coupons that run either though the middle of this month or the end of this month and their March mega it is seriously on sale. This kit is gorgeous!! So, of course I had to buy it. Well, off for now.
