A Question about Calendars!

I'm working on some larger format calendars...and a question popped into my head (lol, which isn't great timing, coz I'm halfway done with the first one). But hey, I thought I'd ask anyway. Which orientation do you prefer for a wall calendar - portrait, landscape or square? And...a follow-up question: Do you prefer to have the grid & photo pages separate or on the same page?

Leave a comment below this post to tell me what orientation you prefer for your calendars. I'll pick a couple of lucky winners to get the calendar of their choice when I get them done (lol, and I'm crossing my fingers that I have them done to release later this week or early next week!)

**Updated October 2 to add Sneek Peek Image** 

Comment quick ladies, this contest closes in less than 24 hours!

The Pickle Barrel is OPEN at PBP - SIX PUMPKIN SOUP Packs for Just $1 Each!

It's time for September's Pickle Barrel Promo at PBP! Many of you know that I have a "thing" for drawing goofy little creatures, so I really LOVE drawing Halloween characters! This month I created a collection called "Pumpkin Soup". This collection is filled with loads of Halloween designs, LOTS of Pumpkins, but not so much soup *grin*

Our 6-Packs are a permanent part of this promo! So
, when you LOVE all SIX of one designer's Pickle Barrel products, go for the 6-Pack! ONE CLICK BUYS ALL SIX AND gives you the FREE GOODIES! This month I'm giving a FREE SAMPLER PACK with the purchase of my 6-Pack!

Here's a closer look at my 6-Pack - this is a value of $22.94 for ONLY $6! Grab this one quick - the Pickle Barrel starts today and ends promptly at 11:59 p.m. on Monday, September 23.

I have to admit, I do have my favorite things in most kits. In this kit, I'm in love with the goofy crow in this Mini Sampler Pack! Get the crow and the rest of this Mini Sampler Pack FREE with the purchase of my 6-Pack! The sampler pack file is included in the download, so you don't have to remember to add it to your cart.

Here are the papers that are in the Sampler Pack. I dunno about you, but I love neutral colored papers...kraft papers are among my favorites. Lol, but of course, I had to jazz them up just a bit *grin*

All Pickle Barrel Products are still available individually, so if you prefer to shop that way, you can. Check out my individual packs below (but remember that if you want the FREE Mini Sampler Pack, you have to buy the 6-Pack!)

If you spend $12 on Pickle Barrel Packs this month, you will get this beautiful Pickle Barrel Bonus Kit FREE!

I just love seeing what my CT does with my kits. I think they'll inspire you, too!

And now....the moment you've been waiting for ***drumroll please***

I'm in the SPOTLIGHT at PBP - Save 40% or MORE in My Shop!

I'm in the Spotlight at PBP....so now is a great time to stock up on my designs that you may have on your wish list!

I had a hard time deciding what to design for my Spotlight Kit. Since the kids were going back to school while I was working on it, that seemed like a likely choice...but I decided to go in more of an "inspiring" direction. I hope you'll enjoy my ONE LITTLE VOICE Collection.

I believe that one little voice can make a big difference in life. But, I also know how difficult it is for our kids & grandkids (or even ourselves) to let our voices be heard. When we see things happen that we know shouldn’t go on, we need to have the courage to take a stand. ONE LITTLE VOICE is the perfect kit to use to create pages to inspire your kids to do just that, or for layouts that show your kids how proud you are of them for doing the right thing.

You can get the most savings by buying the Bundle. It's normally discounted over buying the individual packs. But, this time, you save even MORE because of my Spotlight Sale. Save 49% on The Bundle, PLUS you'll get a FREE Cluster Frame and WordArt Quote Design (in two styles).

I have had so much fun with these Word Frames. Be sure to check the layouts below from my CT for some amazing ideas on how to use them!

You can get this Mini Sampler Pack FREE if you spend $10 during the Spotlight Sale in my Shop. You just have to remember to add it to your cart before you check out :)

I have a fun little Freebie Freebie for you that coordinates with this collection. Click the freebie image below to download it. And hey, if you're on Pinterest, I'd LOVE to have you pin any of these images, if you're on FB, please share the freebie...and if you're on Twitter....feel free to tweet :)

Here's some inspiration for you from my amazing CT & the PBP CT! I just love seeing what these ladies do with my designs!

I Confess...I'd be LOST WITHOUT LISTS :)

     I have to admit it, I LOVE LISTS. I make lists for everything...shopping, packing, cleaning.....I couldn't even think of going to bed without making my "to do list" for the next day! I know...sad, huh? :)

If you're like me, then grab this kit and create a layout about your love of lists! Of course, if you're not a list person, you can still use this kit for lots of themes! Hey, there's a pencil in it, so you could use it for a school kit. Oh wait...do they even use pencils in school anymore, or is everything done on a tablet or keyboard? Lol, can you tell I'm feeling a little old? *grin* I'd better get my bucket list made before I get any older!

Anyway, save 25% on this kit & WordArt Pack. I'd LOVE to see what you do with these designs!

Just FYI...this kit was included in The Digi Files in August, so please check your digi stash to make sure you don't already have it before you put it in your cart :)

Now I admit, when I first started thinking about doing this theme, I didn't know how you'd scrap a page about being a compulsive list maker *grin* Lol, but much to my relief, several of my CT members share my love of lists, and found all sorts of creative ways to use this kit....both for lists, and for other themes. Don't ya just love versatility? :)

Since some of you may have seen my kit before (if you are a fan of The Daily Digi), I thought I'd give you some more pretty stuff to look at. I can't even tell you how excited I am that we have a new designer joining us at PBP. AnnaBV Designs has come out of retirement and has joined our design team, and I couldn't be happier. I just love her whimsical/traditional style, and she's just the nicest person. I hope you'll check out her shop. Here's a look at the first kits she has released:

Have a great weekend!
