Keeping you in STITCHES for TIme4Traditions!

I have to admit, I was in a HUGE RUSH to get my Time4Traditions designs released. After I sent them to my CT, one of my CT members, Joanna Ellis requested some stitches to match the ColorPop Papers. I didn't have time to get them done before the main release, so...that's what I released this week - a rainbow of blanket stitches that you'll want to use for every digi project you do! *Note* The stitches are NOT included in The Bundle!

Save 25% on the Stitches (and all of the other Time4Traditions Designs) for a limited time!

Here's a little inspiration for you using the Time4Traditions Designs (before I added the stitches *grin*)

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

Better late than never, huh? Seems like life was soooo busy right up until the time we sat down with the family for our annual Christmas Eve Dinner, that I didn't get a Merry Christmas post made!

We had our three kids and six grandkids here for dinner on Christmas Eve, and then we enjoyed a big slumber party. Christmas morning was lots of fun, watching the kids see what Santa brought...then we enjoyed a beautiful Christmas service at Church. I just love it when Christmas falls on Sunday, and we get to go to church and sing Christmas hymns. Lol, I'm not sure the grandkids were as excited about it as I was, but hey, they were so good, and they knew that they'd enjoy opening more gifts when we got home.

I've taken two days off of work, and have thoroughly enjoyed it (well, I guess I really took three days off, but Saturday I was cooking all day long, so that's WORK!) Yesterday we just enjoyed relaxing with the family. I have to tell you that if you haven't tried the x-box kinect, you really need to. We loved playing it...especially Dance Central. What a riot (lol, and yes, we are HORRIBLE dancers, but we had fun!) Minute to Win It was fun too, but ermmmm...I was pretty bad at it!

I'm one of those crazy people that went shopping today...but hey, my neighbor & sibling gifts are all done for next year! (I picked up this habit from my good friend, Annette Ward....I'd blame her, but I LOVE getting this stuff done now & not having to worry about it next year! So, thanks Annette!)

When I got home, I started on a little project....I'm redoing a room in the house and making it into my new office...busy stripping wall paper tonight. Then it's the dreaded decision time...I need to decide what color to paint it! I'm open to suggestions!

I hope that you all enjoyed a wonderful Christmas, and that the New Year brings happiness and peace to you and your loved ones. I appreciate each one of you that keep up with my designs, and help me continue making a living doing something that I love so much!

Happy New Year - Let's make 2012 the best year yet!

SAVE on Time4Traditions - my newest release in my Time4Me Series!

 All families have fun, crazy and very special traditions that they enjoy. I asked you what some of your favorite traditions were, and my Time4Traditions Kit is the result! Traditions are what make our families unique, and create the memories that will stay with us for a lifetime. Time4Traditions is filled with LOTS of gorgeous papers (48 to be exact). I did a base set of black and white papers, and then a great set of "Color Pop" papers that you can use to fit your theme and add lots of personality to your projects. I kept most of the embellishments in this kit simple black line art, so that your photos will remain the focus. Have fun and be creative with this set.

If you're a fan of My Memories Suite Software, you've probably noticed that I FINALLY got caught up with adding my kits to the shop there. My entire ColorFIX Series, Time4Gratitude AND Christmas with Mr. Claus Kits are live in the MyMemories head over and check them out. Lol...I'm too lazy/busy to post all of the images, so I'll just put one image up with a link to my main shop. Enjoy!

I can't believe I bought the WHOLE thing...and a new release :)

Have you ever been on one of “those” shopping sprees where you felt like you bought the WHOLE SHOP? Well....I recently did that. i literally bought the WHOLE PICKLEBERRYPOP SHOP/WEBSITE! I hinted on my Facebook Page that I had a big project that I was working on. Well...this is it. The former owner approached me several months ago, and I decided to jump in and go for it! So, I’ve been busy redesigning the graphics and getting things refreshed on the site with the help of my wonderful hubby! The new site went live on December 1. We hope you’ll stop by and check us out. Drop by the forum and get to know the fantastic PBP Team while you’re there! We have LOTS fun things planned so check the site often!

Right now we have a FANTASTIC offer. The PBP “Sweet Pickle” Design Team put together a GORGEOUS Collab Kit called “Christmas Around the World.” During DECEMBER ONLY, you will receive this kit for free with any $10 purchase from the PBP Shop (or course, I’d LOVE it if you spent that $10 in MY shop! *grin*)

This week I'm adding another ColorFIX Kit to my shop at PBP....just for you lovers of PURPLE! My Sweet Lilac Kit is filled with gorgeous elements and papers for every purple prince or princess in your life!

Save 25% on my Sweet Lilac Designs for a limited time!

My Creative Team has made some amazing projects with this kit...check them out!
