I’m moving my blog over to blogspot.  Seems like I can do more with a blog over there and I really like some of the features they have that you can’t find here.  It’ll be easy to maintain both, all I have to do is copy and paste so I may do that for a while until I can figure out which I really like better.

So if you have my saved in your favorites (I would be sooo thrilled to know if I am listed in someones favs), please save the blogspot link too, http://thisscrapperslife.blogspot.com/ and come visit me over there.  Leave me a message and let me know which site you like best.



Thanks to some friends of mine I have delved into Twitter World!!!  OMG, I know!  It’s one of those things I said I’d never do.  Just like Facebook.  Just like Farm Town on Facebook.  And Farmville on Facebook.  And a few other applications on Facebook.  I guess I can at least be grateful there are no game applications or any other applications on Twitter.  So, if any of the few that are reading this blog are on Twitter you can ‘follow’ me.

My friend Heather over at Everything Scrapp’n also signed up on Twitter.  Please follow the Everything Scrappn Twitter too.  And if you haven’t seen her on Facebook yet, look her up and become a fan, you’ll get a head’s up on all the newest products hitting the store.

While you’re at it, go ahead and take a look at Everything Scrapp’n store and look at the fabulous items that have hit the store in the past week.  Have a look at Pink Paislee’s Amber Road and Twilight, so awesome!  Jenny Bowlin, Graphic 45’s Domestic Goddess, Little Yellow Bicycle’s Autumn Bliss and Rusty Pickle’s Panama Jack is in as well, and if you love Maya Road you’ll see some new stuff in from them too.  Please don’t forget about the Glimmer Mist, Heather received the whole new line of limited edition colors, amazing colors I tell ya, and some are close to being sold out already.  Keep your eyes peeled for some more new items arriving soon and remember that the first week new items in the store are always 15% off, what a deal!!!!!

Altered Star: Graphic 45 has done it again! They’ve come out with a new line called Domestic Goddess and it is soooo FABULOUS!!!! I had too many ideas in mind for this paper line but once I found this star to alter I knew I had to use this amazing paper to do it. Please let me know what you think. Products used: Graphic 45 Domestic Goddess: My Pretty Garden, Lady of the House, Yours Truly, Happy Homemaker and Domestic Goddess Tags.

Pizza Box with Card Set:  I found this tutorial to make a mini pizza box, so I decided to make some small cards to match. I like the simplicity of this set, it looks great just sitting on your desk and would also make a great gift. Product used: SEI Madera Island Palmas, Pink Paislee Enchanting Petal, Cloud 9 Cocoa Mint Quote Cards, Prima Flowers, Studio8 Rhinestones, Savvy-n-Sassy ribbon, Bazzill cardstock.

After writing all the names down, putting them in a bowl, I let my kitty Gucci play and the first slip of paper he pull out was the winner, and it had Kimberly’s name on it.

Kimberly won the 5 packs of American Crafts Thickers from the giveaway.  Congrats Kimberly and I will get your Thickers to you ASAP.

So, we started off with 2 packs of  Thickers to giveaway and we are now close to 4 packs of  Thickers up for the giveaway.  Come on ladies, I know you’re out there and I know you LOVE  Thickers, we all do, don’t we?  Spread the word, lets get more  Thickers added!!!!!  Go to the  Thickers Giveaway blog post for all the details and to leave your comments.
