Merry & Bright

This release is a couple days later than I had intended but I keep getting caught up in holiday fun. My daughters Preschool put on a concert at her Christmas party that was SO much fun. My husband got home early so we took Deirdre to see Santa and arrived at exactly the right time where there was no line so we could take all the pictures we wanted! I found out that my step-sisters friends (and their adorable baby!) are going to be having dinner with us all Christmas Eve so I went to Michaels and have been busy all evening crocheting a present for the little angel.

Merry & Bright was inspired by all the fun & funky ornaments that I see everywhere lately. I just love bright colours (I'm sure you can tell bu the majority of my kits lol) and it just inspired me. So much so the Christmas kit I actually planned was put aside until next year lol. I hope you like it, and a reminder that ALL my Christmas kits are 40% off until the end of December!

Here are some truly gorgeous layouts my very talented CT did up for me :

And of course a Freebie! Here is an Additional 7 papers & 15 Elements to the kit!

Away In a Manger

First, I want to formally welcome my fabulous new CT members to the team: Bethany, Denise, Jacqui, Katherine, Melissa & Melissa. Also my fantastic new CT Lead Lauren!

I don't really consider myself religious at this time in my life but I have so many great memories from growing up in church as a child. One of my favourite things about Christmas when I was growing up was the Christmas Eve Candlelight Service. I grew up in the Moravian Church so every year we got the beeswax candles with the frilly red crepe paper skirts to catch wax. It was always so special. I also loves seeing the Christmas Putz (Christmas Village), which was put on every year of the 4 Sundays of the Advent and we would all sing Hosanna.

This Kit and All my Christmas kits are 40% off during the month of December.

Here are some layouts from my fabulous CT!

It's a bit weird for me to be doing a Thanksgiving themed kit when my own Thanksgiving was 6 weeks ago, but the kit seemed much more suited to American Thanksgiving so I held it. I hope if you celebrated this week that you had a great Holiday. Thankful is 40% off from Nov 25th to Dec 1st.

Here are some fantastic Layouts from my CT :

A few of them have Freebies you can grab on their blogs :

Super Saturday Sale

This was a very strange week for me. My daughter has been in playschool since the beginning of September with no issues. I actually expected her to have separation anxiety in the beginning because she's always been a mommy's girl, but nothing, she LOVES school. Until this week. Tuesday she cried after I left cause she missed me. Wednesday she cried as I was leaving, didn't want me to go, I stayed a few minutes longer and cried in the parking lot. Thursday she flipped out when we left the house, kicking screaming & dragging her heels. I explained to her that school is her job & her responsibility. Daddy goes to work every day, even if he's tired & doesn't want to, mommy takes care of Deirdre every day. She didn't cry, so that was good. I hope she feels better next week.

The weather is warming up a bit and pumpkins are wilting on the doorstep, time to get rid of them. We have such insanely fluctuating weather here, I love it but it can be crazy if you don't grow up with it.

The other weird thing was a really nice thing. I always wanted to be the mom who bakes with her kids, does messy crafts etc. I couldn't though cause I stressed out so much about the mess. I finally realized it as anxiety though and went on Anti-Anxiety meds and they are finally at the right level that this morning I made banana bread with my daughter, it was messy but it was so much fun.

These are the reasons I offer you these 3 kits at $2.00 each today!

Fall Frolick

As you can see from my previous two posts, fall has kind of flown the coop around these parts. Last year we were spoiled, unusually so, that we had fall weather pretty much until spring. This year we definitely got winter. I'm glad I bought my daughters Halloween costume a size bigger since she had to wear it over snow pants lol.

Fall is one of my favourite seasons though (right behind spring). Both have the beautiful not too cold & not too hot weather & the rain and beautiful (though very different) scenery. Fall Frolick is a fun kit with all the beautiful colours of Fall. It's perfect for scrapping pictures of playing in the leaves, orchard visits, hayrides, nature walks and so much more. The kit is 40% off from Nov 10 - 16th.

I'm looking for a few more fantastic people to join my team, experienced & newbies alike are welcome to apply :

Here is a few inspirational layouts from my fabulous CT :

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

Testing out my mobile app. Hopefully the picture shows up properly. This snow started Thursday morning and still going strong. Making me think of Christmas for sure. Got a few kits going up for super Saturday tomorrow along this theme if you're feeling the same way.

Sweets & Treats

Are you having fun getting ready for Halloween? I decided to do something a little different this Halloween. I already have a couple Halloween themed kits, Trick-or-Treat is great for the big kids and Boo-tiful Babies is great for the small. I decided to focus on what most kids love about Halloween... the CANDY! Did your kid get a big haul last year or did you find something truly unique to give out this year? Scrap it!

Check out some creative ways my CT used this kit :

Ad Manager & CT Manager Call

I know what you’re thinking… Long time no hear! I’m sorry about that, I’ve been dealing with some stress & anxieties in my personal life and it made it really hard to think about anything else. The good news is I’m starting to feel better, I can see light at the end of my tunnel. Part of that is to look for help a bit more by delegating what I can. Want to help?

PS - New kit out tomorrow!

Reading, Writing, Arithmetic

Are you ready for Back to School or dreading the thought of it already? I, myself, am SO excited. My daughter starts preschool this year, something I never had any intention of doing with her. She plays well with other kids so really doesn’t need the socialization, she knows the alphabet, big & little, numbers to 30, shapes, colours and can recognize her name so really she doesn’t need the lessons either. What she needs though is time away from Mommy lol.

Amy’s Designs and I collaborated on this great Back to School kit for you! We wanted to keep the colours a bit richer & the elements a bit more grown up looking so it it useful for all ages of kids heading back this school year. I hope you enjoy it! Both our kits are 50% off this first week!
