Busy Little Bee

Hi, my scrappy friends! We have had one of the busiest months of my life thus far, trying to get our current place ready to rent (which we now have renters in place) and packing and looking forward to our new place. I went by today and fixtures and appliances are going in, and I'm still in awe that I'm going to own such a beautiful place in a matter of weeks now. I feel so lucky. Several of my friends expressed interest in seeing pics, so here are a few I took today. I think I may need a new house kit coming up soon, eh?

Talking about new kits, I do have a new one in the works, look for my newest creation next week! It's based on my favorite summer dessert, any guesses which one it is?

Awesome CU Blowout Sale

Are you in need of some beautiful handmade CU overlays? CU buttons or doodles? Then, this is the week to grab some Sweet Tomato originals. Everything was created by me, then scanned in my amazing scanner at 600 dpi and then saved as a jpeg or png file at 300 dpi. The detail is clear and beautiful. And if you buy the bundles with this sale, I'm almost giving them away. Click here to see what I've got for you. Price shown reflects the discount.

Polka Dot Plum is having a site CT call and it's a great opportunity to work in one of the greatest stores in scrapland! Call ends August 8th.

And, did you know that Polka Dot Plum store is the August sponsor at Persnickety Prints? There are games, prizes and a full on kit that I helped collaborate on. Check out week 1 here.
