Snipets of freedom

Some pictures of a few minutes at the lake yesterday feeding the ducks and laying on the grass.  And then we went home today and played for a few minutes outside.

Not the best pics, but a little crafting done

Sorry for the darkness, the kiddos were sleeping but I did get a start on my 3x3 circle card holder.  I have 2 sides, one for the ones I get and one side to for mine to give.  I also added some post it notes, just in case and also a little gel pen.

I do have a cut file for the embellishment I am going to put on the front, just haven't been able to get that done yet.  But I did get something done LOL

New Stamps in the store

I got two new stamp sets in the store today.  One for the Toad lovers and a MUST HAVE for the Edward Cullen lovers.

Well it's been a long time

I have been so neglectful I am surprised I have not been reported to the blog police.

But today was supposed to be an all day outside concert that I am going to beg off of.  Instead I am going to spend some time doing some more organizing of the craft room.  I might even take pictures of it if I get it all cleaned up.

I have to straighten and tighten up spaces on the inventory shelves as I have lots of stuff coming in soon.  A grundle of TC stampmakers are on their way (but those are going back out the same day I get them)  I have my Epiphany Crafts order coming in with those cute little epoxy and button makers, I have some cute glitter fluff coming in, hopefully my Cinch order will be here this week too, I have some Gypsies coming in, I just placed an order for some Bind it All's and supplies to go with them and I have to order up some more UltraFine Flowesoft (I better do that before I start in the craft room).

Once that is done I want to FORCE myself to do at least one layout, one card and something altered.

I will try to post some pictures tonight after the kidlets are in bed.  Hope you all have a productive day.

A few minutes with the boys

So I have to do another study and will be in the hospital again for the night and I thought I would take this afternoon and spend a few minutes with the boys.

I just need to double check with PC tomorrow on the pricing and then the items will go up in the store for preorder.  We are talking Christmas and Thanksgiving folks.

Winding down on a work day

So I made this card for an aunt who has been working far too much and finally had a Wednesday off to relax and wind down.

Background paper is some Dollar store paper.  Wine and glass cut from Summer in Paris at 2 in, all other cuts were at 1 inch.  Cheese and plate are From my Kitchen, Grapes from Preserves, font is from Lovely florals Lite cart and wine bottle label is from Lacy Labels

New store address

Ok folks the blinkie on the side works now to take you to the new store.  If you manually enter the address you will need to use dot org (.org) from now on, on August 17th you should be able to access the store using either dot net or dot org.

Sorry about any issues but I am sure you will love all the new features as much as I do.  And don't forget to sign up for the newsletter at the store so you can be notified of the new products, sales and any changes coming up.

Ok folks, let me have some input

I was thinking in order to help boost sales in the store that I would get together a team of designers, that would make some awesome projects out of the item of the month (now don't ask me what they will be, that will change often and it could be anything from a cartridge to a machine).  So my thought would be to get a small team at first, maybe 4 or 5 and then see how that works out.

I would pick an Item of the Month, place it on sale in the store, show some wonderful projects completed using the IOM by the design team and those designers that are picked for that month would be able to purchase the IOM for half price.  If all goes well and sales increase then I would think we could move to a free item. 

What do you all think?
