Just Another Manic Monday.........

I feel like it's a Manic Monday for sure. Woke up to beautiful weather, sunny skies - and a two hour school delay?? Apparently there was fog, somewhere in the world because I didn't see any, so that means no school at all for Samuel since he goes to 1/2 day Kindergarten. I still took Nolan to preschool. Here I had all these lofty plans for how I was going to spend the only 3 hours a week that I get to myself. Oh well, Samuel won't cause problems but I do enjoy my quiet work time!

It's Manic Monday at ScrapMatters again today and for TODAY ONLY, you can get my Unique Kit for 50% Off. So stop over and grab it if you don't already have it!

Also, don't forget to get your application in for my Advertising Assistant position. I need an organized person or a couple people, to help out my Advertising Manager. We are a super fun team. No experience necessary and no LOs required, just a willingness to learn our system and help us get the word out about my products, sales, promotions, etc.! I'd love to hear from you! Details are in the previous post.

Stop back on Wednesday for the start of May and iNSD weekend. I'll have some gorgeous goodies all weekend long! Freebies, New Products, Sales - you don't want to miss out! Now is a good time to sign up for my newsletter on the left sidebar so that all the info comes straight to your inbox! Newsletter subscribers also get exclusive freebies and coupons.

*NEW* Here Comes the Sun + Advertising Assistant Call + Freebie!

Happy Friday! I have a brand new collection for you at ScrapMatters this week called Here Comes the Sun. I really hope that the sun starts coming out more here. We've had enough rain, cold, and yes, snow (it snowed last Saturday during Samuel's soccer game!) that I am ready for the sun to come out and things to warm up.

More Favorites are Back + Freebies!

Happy Friday Everyone! This week has been quite a week. My thoughts and prayers go out to the people involved in the Boston Marathon bombings, whether they were injured, or someone they love was hurt or killed, and all of the Boston area right now as things are quite scary I imagine. Stay safe everyone. Here in the Midwest we're dealing with bad flooding, prayers for everyone affected by that. My parents have several inches of water in their finished basement, not cool! We have some in ours here at our rental but the basement isn't finished and has a sump pump so the floor isn't covered. Thankfully nearly everything we had down there was either in or on top of Rubbermaid tubs or shelving. We caught it early and nothing in the 3 boxes that weren't got wet. Just drying out a couple empty suitcases!

So on to this week's stuff. I brought back a few of my favorites to my guest stores. At ScrapMatters, you can get Unique and my Vellum Collection for 20% Off through Sunday. Save more by grabbing the Bundles!

Also at ScrapMatters it's Mixed Matters time! 5 awesome grab bags with huge savings! Save at least 74%. And for each grab bag you buy, you will be entered to win a $10 gc to ScrapMatters! My kit is in #4, for those who want to know! These are only on sale through Thurs. Next week you will find my kit along with some additional add-ons in my store.
At GingerScraps, my Grazzi Collection is back and 20% Off through Sunday. Save 26% by grabbing the Bundle!
I want to thank everyone who applied to my CT Call. I got so many wonderful applications. It was so fun looking at everyone's LOs. I am so excited to announce my new CT Members: Maike, Tamie, Teresa, Suzan, and Crystal! You will be seeing some awesome LOs from them in the coming months!
Now for some freebies! Kim made you this cluster with Unique and Joey made you a cluster with Grazzi! Enjoy!

Only two more weeks until iNSD! I've got a lot going on that you won't want to miss: new product collections, blog/FB train freebies and my newsletter subscribers will receive an exclusive coupon to save even more in my stores, so be sure that you are signed up (left sidebar has the link)!

*NEW* Novella Collection + Freebies!

Happy Friday! I had a super busy day today. I was helping Andrew with our youth garage sale at the church. It was quite chilly and a little misty but we had a lot of die hard bargain hunters anyway!

I have a brand new collection at ScrapMatters called Novella. I really love to read so this one is near to my heart. You can grab Novella, the Journal Cards, Alphas, and Cardstocks for 20% Off through Sunday or grab the Bundle at 31% Off to save more!

At GingerScraps this week I have a few more favorites back. You can now get Eclectic, Girasole, and Letters from Tuscany for 20% Off through Sunday. Or grab the Bundles for only $9.99. I also have some great news! I will be staying on and guesting at GingerScraps for the month of May as well!
I have a couple freebies for you today. First I have a book border freebie that coordinates with Novella that Kim made for you and second a cluster freebie that Joey made for you to coordinate with Letters from Tuscany.
And don't forget about the CT Call! 3 more days to send me your application. I would love to see your LOs!

*NEW* Child at Heart, A Life Full of Riches, and Freebies!

Happy Friday Everyone!

We're right at the end of spring break here. It's been nice to have a break from our usual daily routine of school for Samuel and all our activities. My life is about to get more crazy though as spring sports are starting up. Next week both of the boys begin karate one day a week and Samuel starts soccer. So we will be very busy with running back and forth. I am looking forward to the warmer temperatures though so that we can finally start getting outside more. Most of the snow is now gone except for the huge piles in parking lots, but it's shrinking rapidly now that it's starting to stay above freezing at night and the spring flowers are starting to sprout.

This week I have a brand new collection at ScrapMatters called Child at Heart. If you happened by my FB page in Feb. and March, you were able to grab the Add-On as my FB freebie (check out my new one for April if you haven't already!). I have been patiently waiting to release this collection as it was due out the week that OSD went down in February. You'll have to excuse the vintage Valentine's cards that are part of the kit, since that holiday is definitely past us, but you might have a few pictures that you haven't scrapped yet. But that's only a small part of this collection, the rest of it is most definitely fit for scrapping any occasion, both adults and children alike. And the colors are very bright and cheerful for spring! Child at Heart and the Add-On, Alphas, Journal Cards, and Cardstocks are 20% Off through Sunday. If you want to save more, grab the Bundle for 39% Off.
Don't forget that today is the last day to grab my April Mix a Kit Products: Vintage Spring for 20% Off as well. They go back to regular price tomorrow.
Additionally, you will find the rest of the products in my store for 20% Off through Sunday as well. This includes my Winter Frost Collection (Bundle is 40% Off), School is Ghoul with Mari Koegelenberg, and my Wish You Were Here Collection (Kit is 25% Off all of April, and Bundle is 31% Off). So be sure to get your shopping in before the sale is over.
At GingerScraps, I have my A Life Full of Riches Collection. This collection has been revamped with some new elements. You can grab the Kit, Clusters and Overlays, Stacked Papers, and Cardstocks for 20% Off through Sunday. Save more by grabbing the Bundle at 33% Off.
Don't forget that today is the last day to grab my Nature's Delight Buffet Items and Bake Sale Items (We Go Together Mini, Fresh Spring Stacked Papers, and Fresh Spring Cardstocks) for only $1.00. The Buffet items will go to regular price tomorrow and the other items will be 20% Off through Sunday along with the Fresh Spring Kit. The Fresh Spring Bundle is currently 38% Off but that discount will also be reduced tomorrow. So be sure to grab the deals while they last!
Also, don't forget to get your applications sent for my CT Call! You can see the previous post for additional details. I love meeting new friends, and have several openings on my team. So don't be shy, I'd love to see your LOs!

Wow! I didn't realize that I had so much to say today. But we are finally to the freebies! Kim and Joey made these great freebies for you that coordinate with Child at Heart and A Life Full of Riches. Enjoy!

I hope you all have a great week. I have another new collection waiting to be released and some of my favorites will be back at GingerScraps! See you next week!

*NEW* Guest Stores, Deals, CT Call and Freebies!

I hope that everyone had a Happy Easter yesterday! We spent a wonderful time of celebration with our church family in the morning and then we had a wonderful time with my family in the afternoon.
