Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to all of my US readers. In honor of Thanksgiving, I am having a sale at Scrappers Zone. My entire store is 35% off through Sunday. Don't miss out. All of my products are Scrap for Hire friendly.

Studio Style Designs is having a store wide sale. EVERYTHING will be 40% off through the 25th. With all the sales going on, it is hard to chose what to buy. I hope you find something you like among my products. You can find the links to my stores in my side bar.

Now that the business is taken care of, on to the fun stuff. What are you doing for this Thanksgiving holiday? My husbands only sister lives just north of Austin in a HUGE house. We usually go to her house for the holidays, both Thanksgiving and Christmas. The hard part of me today is staying on my weight watchers program. I don't like a lot of the really fattening stuff for Thanksgiving. I don't care for green bean cassarole or the sweet potatoes with brown sugar and marshmallows. Those high calorie/high fat dishes are easy to avoid. The hard part for me is the desserts. I LOVE pumpkin pie. Emily, my SIL, makes wonderful pies. I am going to bring a weight watchers friendly pumpkin pie. It will be crustless and only 2 points per slice (1/8th of a pie). I will also be bringing sweet potatoes roasted in fresh rosemary and olive oil and green beans steamed with dried cranberries. Usually, we bring homemade bread for dinner. We have a bread machine and a few tried and true recipes. Our favorite is parmesan and oregano bread. However, I went to make bread for a church activity and we are missing one of the beaters to our bread machine so I can't make bread. I got on the Westbend website to order the replacement part and I can't find the exact same thing. I need to call Westbend about it. The description says "black beater bar" and what I have in my machine is a white beater (no bar). I don't want to order the wrong thing.

Happy Thanksgiving

Snow in Texas

No, you didn't miss something when you watched the news last night. This is the name of my new kit. Last January, we got 2 days of snow and ice, well, mostly ice. I finally got around to scrappin those pictures (I took about 100) and realized that I did not have one single snow kit. I always skip over the snow kits, even the freebies. I had just started designing (tells you how far behind I am in my scrapping) and decided to make my own kit for my LO. I made the specific things I wanted first, used them and then made the rest. I usually don't like to scrap with my own work. It is easier to make something for a specific page and then use it rather than make a whole kit and then use it. Sorry, I'm rambling again. This kit is now in my stores (see the link on my side bar). All of my kits include a Scrap for Hire terms of use. If you make a LO with my kits, I would love to see them.

Here is a quick page I made with this kit. I hope you enjoy it. The "Snow in Texas" kit will be on sale in my store tomorrow.

A New Haircut and Scrap for hire friendly

That is the name of my new kit. It was a kit I made at the request of someone looking for a kit to scrap her babies first haircut. This doesn't have to be limited to "babies first haircut" though. I just recently got my hair cut and I think I will do a LO with this kit to show off my new "do". I just have to find the time to do it now. You can find this kit at both of my stores, Scrappers Zone and Studio Style Designs.

My second announcement is that I have now made all of my kits Scrap for Hire friendly. All of my kits come with a specific scrap for hire terms of use in a PDF file. I also will not require that you look for an updated TOU when you use my kits. Even if I change my TOU, the TOU that came with your kit is the one you will need to follow. I don't think it is right that a S4H scrapper should have to hunt down updated TOU before they use a kit. That has got to take up a lot of time and I know that time is precious to all of us.

My first CT call

I am having my first CT call. I am pretty easy going and I want this to be fun. I hope that I get get a great team together and we can be like a family. My requirements are easy-2 LO per kit and 1 kit per month. LO should be posted in at least 3 galleries-DST and 2 others of your choice. I am designing at Studio Style Designs and Scrappers Zone. If you are intersted, send me a link to your most complete gallery and a little about yourself to digiheaven_designs at sbcglobal dot net. This is an open ended call. I will close it when I feel I have a good team. I hope to hear from some of you.

A sale on "I Miss Summer"

This is my kit "I Miss Summer". It is going to be on sale the entire month of November. It will be 25% off in both of my stores. It is going to be the kit used for the brag book challenge at both Studio Style Designs and Scrappers Zone. I would love to see some of you head over to one of those forums to participate in this challenge. In the challenge, create 1-2 brag book pages (4x6 inches) and at the end of the month, you get all the other brag book pages. This is a great way to get a full brag book for a Christmas present with the effort of only 1-2 pages. With this kit, you could do a whole book of vacation pictures.

Now that I have done my advertising, here are my weekend plans. We are going camping. This is a cub scout family campout. We love camping and this is going to be a prefect weekend for it. The lows at night have been in the high 50's and the highs have been in the mid 70's. I love this weather. I wish it could be like this all year round. I love this weather.

I hope everyone has a good weekend.
