In the works

I have a new kit in the works. It is all about faeries. I'm trying to come up with a good name for it now. Sometimes the hardest part of doing a kit is naming it. You want it to be original, but not corny. The originality is the hard part. I think that is the hard part of designing new kits is being original. What can I put in my kits that is different from everyone else? That is always the question.

Here is a little preview of what is going in this faerie kit. This is only a fraction of what I have done. I am hoping to have this finished by the end of the week so I can get it in the stores soon. I can't promise anything though because my MS is flaring up right now so the rest of my week is going to be unpredictable. We'll see what happens. I should have a freebie to go with this also, so be sure to check back. If you think of any great names, I am open to suggestions. If I use your name, you get the kit. This isn't a contest or anything, but I couldn't use someones name without giving them a thank-you for the idea.

Scraphead Grand Opening

Even though Scraphead has been operating for about 6 weeks under the new management of Michelle Powell, we are officially having our grand opening. Everything is going to be 40% off for the weekend. We are having a treasure hunt with lots of freebies and coupons available during the treasure hunt. We are also having a grab bag sale. I made a grab bag just for the sale. I didn't think I would ever make a grab bag. I don't buy them so I wasn't going to make one. We'll see how it sells and then I will decide if I will ever make another one. It sure seems like a lot of stuff for a very low price. Mine is commercial use and everything in it can be used for designing. I didn't have time to make a personal use one. Stop by Scraphead and check us out. BTW, my grab bag will be available in all of my stores. I already have it in the store at Scrapper's Zone and will soon have it at Studio Style Designs.

I have been tagged so many times over the past month or more and I have not had time to do anything with them. Most recently, ScrapShana tagged me. I think I have done this one before, but it has been a while. I hope I can find 7 facts about me that are weird or random. Actually, the harder part is figuring out who to tag after this. How about this; if you read this, then consider yourself tagged. I know, it is a cop-out. Oh well.

1. My teenage daughter gives me fashion advise. She keeps me from looking like an old lady.

2. I lived in the Philippines for 3 years.

3. The house I lived in while in the Philippines has since been buried by a volcano.

4. I grew up in Utah but I have never been skiing.

5. I have always wanted 6 kids, but after being on bedrest for all 3 pregnancies, I stopped at 3 kids.

6. I was the youngest person to ever graduate from nursing school in the RN program at Austin Community College (I don't know if this is still the case though).

7. I had to get special permission to take my state boards after nursing school because I was not yet 21. The rule has since changed so people can take the boards before they are 21 now.

Ok if you read this, then consider yourself tagged.

Nancy, AKA Scrappy Cats, tagged me over a month ago. This is a different kind of tag. This is a quick page tag. As a bonus, this means you get a quick page freebie. I made a quick page from one of my newer kits, My Graduate. I hope you enjoy the quick page. Here is the tag info.

So here is it is a different kind of tag. I am calling it the Quick Page tag and here are the rules.

  1. Create a layout with my Quick Page and post it on your blog.
  2. Tag seven people with instructions to download the Quick Page from here and to post a layout on their blog using it.
  3. Bloggers recieving a Quick Page tag are to use the Quick Page to post a layout on their blog AND tag seven more people.
  4. If you are a designer, you are to MAKE a new Quick Page to post instead of sending people to mine. (Makes it possible to re-tag a person who has used a different Quick Page!)
  5. Don’t worry about the rules just have fun and get some Quick Page layouts up.

Here is the quick page download link

Once again, if you are reading this, then consider yourself tagged.
