New Blog Adventure

Hello my friends!

Sweet Tomato's embarking on a new blog adventure. We're packing up and moving over to my own domain in wordpress (www.sweettomatodesigns.com) to create a more user-friendly and engaging site just for you. I'm planning more tutorials, more inspiration, and more goodies all wrapped up in a pretty new package. While I did create the graphics for this site, I am grateful for Jaimee of Just Jaimee Designs for installing all of this for me. I highly recommend her for any of your own installations. I'll keep my blogger blog up for awhile and if you are reading this through feedburner, it will automatically update you to the new blog as I do in a change the settings later today. Stay tuned!

Making Changes = Big Weekend Sale

Polka Dot Plum store
Scrappity-Doo-Dah store

Hello Scrappy Peeps! I'm here to tell you about my BIG, slightly heartbreaking news. I have found that I do not have the time or energy to run 3 stores, so I've decided to go exclusive over at Funky Playground Designs. And while I'm sad to leave 2 wonderful stores like Polka Dot Plum & Scrappity-Doo-Dah, it's just the right thing to do for Sweet Tomato. So, take advantage of my closing and grab some of your favorites for 50% off this weekend only. Good now through Sunday night when my stores will close. I rarely do this deep of a discount, so take swing on by. I'm also retiring many of my products over at PDP that won't be returning. FYI - the discount will show up in your cart!

Front Page News!

Funky Playground's April playgroup are kits based on nominated Best Picture films and there are some AMAZING ones to choose from. I chose a little known 30's picture called Front Page because it immediately made me think of our favorite hobby. We're all just photographers at heart, aren't we? We take pictures of people we love, places we visit, and events we always want to remember. We're always on a quest to make beautiful photos and then to create amazing layouts to highlight them. This kit is made for ALL of us, with a sophisticated color palette with a modern, quirky twist on our favorite hobby, photography.
