Um… yeah… so remember when I said I was run a little ragged last week? Apparently that was a bit of an understatement because here we are to ANOTHER Friday and I have not even posted my winners for last week – I’m seriously chasing my tail over here. Between breaking up brother fights, trying to get the kids out of the house and away from the x-box at least a few times a week, and then alllllllll the cleaning – it is insane, the kids happen to be making like a million more messes with there being no school, so I’ve had to be a tyrant around here…. Apparently they all suffer from that special kind of blindness where they can’t actually see anything after they’ve dropped it on the floor. Basically it involves me walking them around the house and showing them every single thing that needs picking up (which, fyi, is way more work than just doing it myself!)…
Seriously, I’m so complain-y over here. It is unfortunate for all of you that my Friday Fixes all actually fall on Fridays, because now that g has changed jobs he isn’t home on Fridays. So it’s just me, here at the end of my rope, pulling my hair out and whining… and you all have to come here, and read it, just in hopes of winning free stuff! LOL I really LOVE my family, and having 4 boys is a blessing every single day, but lets be honest, it is also a HUGE amount of work!
This week I still managed to get some work done, a little less than what my average Friday has looked like lately, but goodies I’m proud of nonetheless!
First up, I have a scoop I did with a fellow SSD designer, and a totally NEW collab partner to me – it is just so fun to see what we end up with, and this one really does not disappoint. Pretty certain you will love it!
I also have a few little element packs I managed to finish up:
SO… if you want to chance waiting like a WEEK for your prize, leave a little bit of love here in the comments. You can also link this post on facebook and/or twitter and post an additional comment for each link. Or you could always just send me wine… For each comment and/or bottle of wine you get a chance to win tomorrows’ new kit or one of the new element packs. (speaking of winning, I’ll post last weeks winners in my post tomorrow with this week’s wins)
There you have it, if I hit publish right now I might have a chance of beating the new releases going live LOL, so I guess I’d better hurry up and post!
well… i think i must be going crazy because i completely didn’t remember to do a fix today… until like now! sigh! sorry everyone!
I’ll post the previews and what not tomorrow, and we’ll have to figure out something to make next weeks fix extra special.
Please don’t be toooo mad at me! :P
YAY! Today is one of my favorite Saturdays of the year! It is (inter)National Scrapbooking Day! Woot! Not only are there super awesome sales everywhere in digi land (including the 35% off sale at SSD – plus a free collab with any $10 purchase!!!), but also I love today because it gives me an actual valid reason to spend the day doing nothing but scrap!
I’m still a bit woozy today, and all achey too, poor mouth of mine! But scrapping doesn’t take too much umph, so I’m hopeful I’ll get a few pages under my belt today.
But first I have to show of my new products and announce the winners from yesterday’s comments!
First off, is this amazing collab with Dani, I swear that girl doesn’t make anything that isn’t 100% awesome! I’m so happy that I got to play with her!
Woot! To add to the awesomenss, we totally made a BOY kit too!!! Who wants to guess the first kit I wanna play with today!?!
Second off I made another set of Titlework page titles – I love making these puppies so much, I hope you’ll love them too!
I also did another word-art-title-y type set:
and finally, I repackaged a few alpha’s from my past few kits:
So ofcourse now it’s winner time! First off, here’s the winner of the Collab with Dani:
Comment number 17 belongs to Beth Warner! :) Beth send me an email at slclingerman AT comcast.net so I can hook you up!!!
Now for the Titlework 2 and the Sentimentals, in that order:
Linz is our Titlework 2 winner, and Sharon Kay you win the Sentimentals pack! (Make sure to email me slclingerman AT comcast.net)
Finally I picked 2 alpha winners:
Rebbecca and Deb, you can both email me with your choice of either the Jolly Good or the Spiffy Black alphas (if you already have both, let me know that too so I can get you something else)
Well there you have it! I wanna stop typing now so I can go scrap!! Don’t forget everything in the Shoppe is 35% off both today or tomorrow, so don’t miss this chance to pick up those things on your wish list!
Happy scrapping everyone!!
So, I’m back this week with a very special Friday Fix on the bay before (inter)National Scrapbooking Day! Woot, I love this holdiday, and every year at the Sweet Shoppe we bring you a whole bunch of special stuff (can anyone one smell a sale coming???) be sure to stop by our fourms tomorrow and see all the fun stuff we have for you!
You’ll have to forgive me this week too, because I’ve got a seriously wobbly head, I had oral surgery this morning (wisdom teeth) so i cannot be responsible for what ever confusing mumbo jumbo the post contains…
So yes, I’m excited… my mouth is numb… brain is a more than a little foggy… iNSD… lots of great stff… yada yada…
Lets just get to peeking shall we?? First and foremost I teamed up with my digi mentor, and seriously one of the BEST designers in the field, Dani Mogstad. We had a blast putting together this kit that will be ideal for all those guys in your life (no…. not like that! you are all a bunch of hookers!)
It’s so awesome guys! I can’t wait to share the full preview :)
In addition to that I’ve got several element packs. Two alphas and two wordart type packs:
So there you have it, all together there are 5 new products and so we”ll have 5 new release winners tomorrow.
I think you all know the drill, but yeah, leave a comment for a chance to win, tweet/fbook/blog and you can leave an additional comment for more chances to win. Also remember that you don’t have to wait to shop until you know if you win, I will give you your choice of another kit or element pack in the store if you have already purchased these and won!
Um, I think that covers all of it… also, I know that I’m having typing issues seeing as I’m actually typing with one eye open an one eye closed…. LOL… I should sleep…
Happy commenting, and happy Friday everyone! Be back tomorrow!
As promised,I’m back today with some photos -and some winners- from my March Of Dimes walk yesterday.
We were so happy to see that the sky had pitty on us, and although it looked a little questionable starting off, the rain stayed up in the clouds where it belonged. We had a really nice, and even a little bit sunny, day!
I brought tennyson with me to take a little stroller ride – here we are getting ready to head out on our big race:
I walked with a small group from my MOMS club, here’s a picture of us all together:
I think next year we’ll definitely be able to wrangle more people to walk with us :)
I walked with my sweet friend Brenda, here’s a picture of her pushing Tennyson – poor Brenda I totally set her up for that one! We have this running joke that brenda looks for the worst pictures possible of me on her blog, so just for that b here’s some payback!
Just a few pictures from the beautiful walk:
All in all it was awesome – and I have so many of you to thank for it!!!
Speaking of thanks…
Tennyson and I also did the drawing for the three prizes from a print out of my sponsor form:
Our three winners are Kellie T., Kirsty Binston, and Christy N. I’ll be sending each of you a coupon code to my shoppe!
Thank you Thank you Thank you all! I’ll be pressing send on a thank you and a download of my newest alpha for each of you right now. I can not express how much it meant to me to have your support in raising money for such a great cause!
