New store and a new kit

September 23rd, 2008

I mentioned in my last post that I will be selling in a new store soon. I am still at Divine, but am now also officially part of the ScrapDish designer team. 🙂 I have already uploaded a few things that you can find in both stores, but I also released a brand new kit at ScrapDish tonight called “Owl Always Love You”:

My CT has done it again

September 17th, 2008

Have I mentioned before how much I adore my CT? I have some of THE BEST CT members, I really do! They have been making some lovely pages the past few months. I have finally gotten some of them ready for you to ooh and ah over along with me. (All additional credits can be found in my designer gallery at Divine Digital)

Before I post the LOs, I had to show you this adorable hybrid card made by Anne Katrine! She used my “Lil’ Cowboy” kit. Isn’t it cute?! I just love it!

Ok, onto the LOs:

And because this is probably a way longer post than you were expecting, I’m going to add the rest in a slide show. There were just so many beautiful pages, that this one post would go on for quite a while. 😉

Didn’t I tell you they were busy? 😀

In other news, I have been accepted to another store. Yay! I will be stocking it with some of my recent items, and will let you know where as soon as I do. 🙂

And finally, I wanted to mention that I did add another freebie. It’s an extra paper that didn’t make it into my “Lil’ Buckaroo” kit. It coordinates perfectly with it, so be sure to pick it up. You can find it in the freebie link found at the top of the page.

That’s all folks! Have a great week!

Outta This World!

September 4th, 2008

Just a quick note to say my newest kit, “Outta This World”, is now available. I think this is my new favorite kit. Perfect for photos of your little space cadets at Halloween or with their favorite space ranger, yet versatile enough to be used on non-space themed pages as well.

This kit is priced at 30% off through Sunday, so be sure to pick it up this weekend. With that, I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Where is Melissa?

August 27th, 2008

I’m here! I have been ultra busy, and not necessarily with designing. Real life can tend to put the designing on hold from time to time. I live in Florida, and as I am sure most of you know, we were recently visited by Tropical Storm Fay. What a pain she was! She invited herself over, stayed way too long, and then left a huge mess behind.

My husband works at the EOC for a neighboring county and, as we found out, is essential personnel. He went into work on Wednesday and did not come home until Saturday. He was only home long enough to sleep and then was back to work for another 12 hours on Sunday. He even missed our summer handbell performance. We had to grab one of the youth who happens to read music and have him fill in. Poor kid had to sight read, and the music was HARD. He did a pretty good job though, and we muddled through the concert. Nobody in the audience seemed to even notice, thankfully.

I took the kids and our dog and headed over to my parent’s house during the storm. They got some flooding, which we expected, and we watched their neighbor’s mailbox float down the road.

My grandfather also had some flooding in his apartment. Other than that, we lost some branches at my house and that’s about all. It could have been so much worse, and I am so grateful that we all made it through with such little damage.

We also made the mistake of starting school last week, just before Fay came by. The kids were excited about starting our year, and then everything got put on hold. Right now, our favorite part of school is science. I found a nice and FREE science curriculum that I am using with the kids. The unit is 33 weeks long and the focus is on the human body. You can find it at ourlosbanos.com. Since J1’s favorite subjects are math and science, I figure we will do this as additional science for him.

Want to know why the kids are enjoying science so much? They love the interactive activities and projects. 🙂 We did a project this morning where we created edible DNA. J1 LOVED it and looks forward to learning everything he can in regards to DNA and cells. J2 seems to have a slight grasp on the concept now, and the girls enjoyed getting to match the colored patterns, which was more age appropriate for them. The best part, of course, was that they got to eat it after their picture was taken. 🙂 The original project called for colored marshmallows to be used, but the grocery store did not have any in stock so we used gummy bears instead. I think it actually worked out better since the colors were brighter and easier for the kids to see. The drawback was that they were a little harder for the younger ones to stick onto the toothpicks without them breaking and causing a slight meltdown period.

Did I mention the great collab I made with Wendy of Neverland Scraps? It is still on sale through this weekend at my Divine Digital store, and you can also find it at NDISB and Pixie Treasures. There are even some cute QPs and BB pages available at Pixie Treasure, so be sure to check them out!

One final thing before I go! I will be adding a couple of new pages at the top of my blog in the near future. Actually, one will be going up today – freebies. These will rotate from time to time. If you happened to miss my Teacher’s Pet submissions, they will be available for you to snag. I have no idea how often I will add to that page, so be sure to check back every so often and see of anything new has been added.

With that, I am off! Have a wonderful day!

End of Summer

August 15th, 2008

Yes, it is still a little ways away, but definitely on the minds of kids and parents everywhere. School is starting soon (already has for many), and therefore the end of summer freedom is upon us. We plan on starting school next week. I’ve just been waiting for some library books to be put on hold for me, and they appear to all be ready as of this morning. Yay! We’re going to ease into it slowly and hopefully we can find a good schedule pretty soon. Last year worked out great, but this year my husband’s work schedule changed and it is putting a kink in the schedule I thought I would have. So, we shall see how I schedule things now. 🙂

For those of you who have been following the Teacher’s Pet contest, I did not make the third cut. That’s ok though, because those that did make it are all wonderful and totally deserve to be there. I can’t wait to see who gets chosen for the spot or spots.

In the meantime, I was able to pair up with Neverland Scraps for a collab kit appropriately named “End of Summer”.

Photobucket

I had so much fun working on this and with Wendy. We are selling this at Divine Digital and Pixie Treasure. Right now it is on sale for half price. On Monday, at Divine, the price will be going up, so be sure to grab it while it is cheap. 😉

Happy weekend everyone!
