It’s my birthday…and a few other things

I was chatting with Danielle of the Urban Fairy the other day and while talking we were excited to discover that we share the same birthday!  Woohoo!  There was no way were going to let something like that pass us by so we decided to pair up and give you this wonderful collab in celebration of our special day!  So I (we) give you Memories.  Here's the main inspiration behind it:

“Songs and smells will bring you back to a moment in time more than anything else. It's amazing how much can be conjured with a few notes of a song or a solitary whiff of a room. A song you didn't even pay attention to at the time, a place that you didn't even know had a particular smell.”― Emily Giffin








Here's some wonderful CT inspiration for you...

My birthday is almost here and so it is time to CELEBRATE!  It's become a tradition for me to do this and this year will be no exception.  I'm so lucky to have the best fans and customers!  Thank you all!!


Today I have the DOTD (Deal of the Day) at The Studio.  This Deal is 70% and is an old favorite.  If you never got this kit now would be a great time!!!


In addition to this deal I also have a WONDERFUL freebie to go along with it.  Enjoy!!


Lastly I want to share with you that the forum and gallery at The Studio are finally up and running!  YES!  And I have a wonderful challenge series going on over there that I would love for you to join me in!  It's called the Bricolage Society and I know you are going to love it as much as I do and the people who have already discovered it!  Here's just a preview of what it looks like and please stop by the forum for the FREEBIE that goes along with it and for the rest of the challenge rules!  I'd LOVE to see you there!!


I hope you have a great weekend!!



















































You’ve got me In Stitches No5

Last night my family and I went to see Riverdance.  I did not think I would get another chance to see this in my lifetime but they've brought it back and so when I heard it was coming to Denver I got tickets.  The last time we saw it was 5 years ago in Cheyenne, Wyoming.  We were sitting in the balcony and Ava was fooling around (big surprise) and kicked her shoe over the balcony onto the people below us.  I was so mad!  She was laughing...and so were the people behind us.  I MADE her go and retrieve the shoe by herself.  I think she dragged her sister along for "comfort".  She was 9 at the time.  Oh the things we remember!  This time around both girls were able to sit thru the entire show without me having to get after them (too much) and both said they had a good time afterward.  Funny what a few years will do.

This week I've got a few new products for you in my shop.  My every favorite "in stitches" series has another addition...In Stitches No5 is new and will be 20% off until Saturday March 19, 2016.


Here's what I did with them...


And a wonderful page from Ange...


And next up we have another installment of my Urban Grunge series...Urban Grunge 9.  This is also 20% off in my shop and will be until Saturday, March 19, 2016.


Here's what I did with it...
