Happy Wednesday, Friends! Are you gearing up for a Happy Thanksgiving and spending time with friends and family over the next few days? Or maybe you are gearing up for some serious shopping this weekend, both at stores and on the web. :) I’m not a Black Friday shopper, but I do love all of the deals I find online this time of year. :)
Infact, just this past weekend, I succumbed to the Today’s Special going on at HSN.com and bought myself a new photo printer. I’ve had my current color printer for almost ten years, so I figured it was time for an upgrade. I picked up the Canon Pixma here. I admit it, I was crushing on the sleek, white color. It had me at “hello.” Hehe! Now I just hope it lives up to my picky photo-printing standards. Does anyone have this printer? Do you like it? After I receive it and play with it for a few weeks, I’ll let you know my thoughts.
I also spent the morning on Joann.com filling my cart with several Technique Tuesday stamps (LOVE Ali Edwards’ stamps!). All paper crafting is 50% off right now! Until Thursday, you can use the code COZY331 for $1.99 flat rate shipping (or free shipping over $50). Just thought I would let you know in case you’re a pathological supply shopper like I am. *wink!*
I have some exciting news to share with you! As you know, I work with the amazing Lisa Bearnson. This week she re-introduced her website featuring a brand new look! It’s amazing! It has a fresh, clean feel and lots of exciting new features. I hope you will come check it out! In THIS POST Lisa takes you on a little tour.
Along with the website relaunch, Lisa is celebrating a huge milestone in her personal life! (So happy for you, Lisa!) Because of all of this, Lisa has some FABULOUS giveaways going on. Check out this entry on Lisa’s Blog to read about her milestone and for details on how to enter the giveaways. (You can enter until Sunday!)
One of the giveaways is a chance to win a Monogram necklace by Jewel Kade. You have probably seen Lisa wearing this necklace while doing shows on HSN. I’ve been admiring it for sometime. You can imagine how thrilled I was when she gave one to me as a gift.
Don’t you love it?! Head on over to Lisa’s blog for a chance to win one of your own.
I’ve been doing more scrapping with my stash and have a couple more pages to share.
First, another Halloween page using an older collection by October Afternoon called Witch Hazel. :) Awww, how I love Halloween!
Next, I have a couple of pages with a vintage feel to them. I’ve been hanging onto Teresa Collins Fabrications line to scrap these pictures of Maryn’s Pioneer Birthday party at the Lion House from a few years ago.
Using vintage colors like this is actually quite tricky for me. I tend to gravitate towards bright, candy colors, but it’s also nice to step out of my comfort zone once in awhile.
For both of these pages, I pulled out my Cricut Explore machine. The lion head on the two-pager is from the French Manor cartridge. The children image on the “Pioneer Party” page is from the Nursery Rhymes cartridge.
Thank you so much for popping by! If I don’t get a chance to “see” you tomorrow, Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
