I'm actually ahead of the game this year & I'm releasing my Nancy Drew Date Books early enough that people can actually get them done in time! This is my most popular kit & I've sold hundreds of them over the years. Each Date Book functions as a whimsical weekly day planner that will carry you through the year. The kits are easy for you to assemble and make great gifts for teachers, sisters, daughters and friends.
The first two releases, "Nancy's Mysterious Letter" and "The Invisible Intruder" are now available in my Etsy shop.
A couple of weeks ago, I ran away from home to scrapbook with some girlfriends. I was able to complete seven (I KNOW, SEVEN!) layouts in one weekend. That's virtually unheard of for me. Unfortunately, I've only printed a handful of pics since Baby A. was born, so all of her layouts are from August of 2009. There are some disadvantages of going digital... I never seem to have time to print my pics now. I need to get better at that.
I love this LO b/c Baby A. no longer says "Mama". It's "Mommy" now. Actually, it's "Mommeeeeeeee". But there's something bittersweet about remembering when she could only say "Mama". Time flies...
This is my final non-Christmas-themed Scrabble Tile Bracelet Kit this year. Three of the six circus kits sold before I could put this post up, but as of 9 p.m. tonight, I still have three kits left. Grab them before they're gone!
What's not to love about the circus? Death defying feats! Popcorn and peanuts! Amazing animal acts! You can enjoy the circus every day with your own "Greatest Show On Earth" Scrabble tile bracelet.
This amber and red-themed kit includes over 40 vintage circus images. Choose from either sepia toned, black & white or full color images. Step by step instructions will teach you to make Scrabble tile charms and beaded charms to embellish your bracelet. Your handmade charms will be accented by silvertone charms (including a peanut, circus tent and popcorn!).
New printable coupon links are up for both AC Moore (hurry, it expires tomorrow) and Michaels. You'll find both of them under the "Hot Links" section of the left sidebar on my home page. Happy shopping!
(10/21/10 Edited to add: So sorry, but the "Postcards From Paris" Scrabble Tile Bracelet Kit has sold out. I'm hoping to release my next kit, a vintage circus themed "The Great Show On Earth" kit, this weekend.)
My latest Scrabble tile kit, "Postcards From Paris" features the blues, greys and pinks of the Parisian sky. Each kit comes complete with over 40 Scrabble tile size images of famous Parisian landmarks and 8 Parisian-themed silvertone charms. As with my previous kits, I'm only releasing six kits with this theme before moving on to my next subject (hint: "The Greatest Show On Earth"). You'll want to grab your Parisian kit right away!
When I heard the news that "Accessories of Old" was planning to close their doors, I actually felt like I'd been kicked in the gut. I immediately e-mailed Uncle Andy to confirm the rumour and I'm terribly sad to report that it is true. This local treasure will be closing their doors in Frederick, MD at the end of November. All merchandise is 50% off until they close. If you've never been (click here to read my review), go now. NOW! You'll never find such an enormous selection of vintage findings in this part of the country. Stock up on sequins, handstitched French trims, crystals, Bakelite buckles and so much more.
