Spring Renewal Freebie

Sorry, this link has expired!
My designer friends at Polka Dot Plum wanted to kick off spring with a little blog train just for you. I view spring with equal parts excitement and dread. Obviously I'm excited about warm weather, getting the kids OUTSIDE and the longer days. Dread because my allergies go beserk with all the tree pollen. Who knew something so beautiful could be so wicked? Anyway, I hope you enjoy this little gift from me to you. This is the 2nd of three VERY BIG freebies I have coming this week. Who says I don't spoil my loyal fans?

Recommended Reads & A Great Deal

Ok, so I'm going to let you in on a little secret about me. I love anything English, anything mystery, and anything period...in my movies, my books, my DVR. Seriously, if I could travel back in time, I'd be Jane Austen for a day. So imagine my happiness when I found ALL THREE things in not one series of books, but 2! If you are like me then check out the series by Charles Finch and one by Tasha Alexander. They will not disappoint. I've now finished all the current books and am stalking their websites waiting for the next release. Aaaah, the torture.

To help keep me occupied while mourning the completion of that last book, I made this classy 2 page template for you. It's made specifically for Polka Dot Plum's Saturday Singles and will be available for ONE DAY ONLY today for $1. Tomrrow it will go back on my external hard drive and won't be back until I release it as a full set at full price.

And if anyone else knows another series of period English mysteries....please leave me a comment. I'm always on the lookout for new reads.

Big GIANT News!

So, as my regulars know, I'm just off a sabbatical where I took time to move and settle my family. After the hectic holidays, I decided to pump some life into my designing and send off guest applications and sponsorships, looking to really change things up this year. The response was amazing! So here's the lowdown thus far:

1) I'm still at Polka Dot Plum, which has my widest range of products
2) I had a CT call in January and added some seriously talented new peeps
3) I'm a contributing designer to The Fix this month at DigiScrapAddicts.
4) I guested at Scrappity-Doo-Dah this February and loved it so much I decided to stay on there
5) I'm the March sponsor for Log Your Memory and (wait for it).....

6) I'm the newest designer at Funky Playground Designs starting today! WOO HOO! Grab anything at my FPD store for 50% off until March 5th.
