Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner!!

It's time to announce the winner of my blog candy!!
1.2.3..... BONA!!

I had previously, before the contest started, picked the #3 in my head, as it's my favorite number. But then I decided that might not be so fair, so I went to my mom, and made her pick a number, and she picked #3 as well, so it's decided. The 3rd comment was Bona!

So, congrats Bona. Email me at your addy and I will ship off your surprise kit to you. ***stupid camera cord has disappeared. I can NOT find it anywhere.***

Hopefully Bona will make a video when she gets the package, so ya'll can see it!

Yay!! I am so excited that my first blog candy went off so well. Thanks to everyone who posted videos and gave me more yummy spaces and rooms to look at!!

I filmed mine, and as soon as my camera cord shows up, I will post it for ya'll to see!

Thanks everyone!

I have the kit made, am going to make a video, to show it in more detail, than just a photo, but I can't find my cord for the camera. I have 2 minis done as well, yet no cord.

October trade minis

I have been sick all week, literally. It started last Sunday, and I am still running small fevers a week later! That's crazyness, but has given me lots of time off to work on my mini albums for this month's swaps. I have a swap with Trade Wind Scrappers at The Scrap Beach hosted by Kathryn, and one at Deux Shabby Chic hosted by Bona and Arlene.
I am about half done with the mini for DSC, and I am trying to do something different for once, which is a bit of a challenge. I am liking it so far, but I am not in love with it. I am going to work on and it, and my hope is to have it finished by next week and in the mail. Then I have to bust some rear on the other one, and make sure it's done and in the mail by the end of the month. I am on a bit of a time crunch.
I ordered a kit from which is a site by Marie, who is also a member of DSC. I am anxiously awaiting that in the mail and can't wait to play with it! I am really digging the top note die from stamping up. I really, really, really want one! It is on the top of my wishlist right now.

I also got a pretty big haul from, and their clearence on ebay. I think I got around 14 dies all together. with 2 orders from sizzix and 2 from their ebay. I went a bit crazy, because I only have 1 sizzix die so far. I needed to expand my collection. The good thing is, I didn't spend that much money. I think I spent like under $65 all together. I am looking forward to those arriving in the mail as well.
I also placed a small order of a couple things I needed from That should be here on Monday for sure.
I kinda want to do a secret sister swap over at DSC for the holidays. I think it would be fun to start it now, and keep it going through Christmas. I did one of those before at SIStv when I first joined 2 years ago, and it was fabulous. Maybe I will bring it up in the chat on the blog! I think the ladies would enjoy it, and it would give us a chance to get to know each other more!

Happy crafting!

Memory Works

Real quick, I just wanted to throw this in here, for anyone who is interested. I am a consultant for Memory works. If you haven't heard of them, check them out here. I am more than happy to place orders for anyone who wants some new goodies!

Oh, and something else real quick. I don't know if any of you have had experience with, but I placed 2 orders there last week. 1 order was fine, but the 2nd order was not correct, so I contacted them, they cancelled that order and placed another. Except the new order, was the exact same as the wrong one. Then I find out today, that they shipped the cancelled order to me already. And I checked my bank account, and it was over-drafted. Weird. So I call the bank, to see if they double charged me, for that cancelled/new order. They charged me 6 times! 3 times for the orginal order, and then 3 times for the cancelled/new order. OVER $300 dollars was taken out of my account, when only around $60 should have been. Which then caused the bank to charge me the overdraft fee every time they charged me. The good news is, I have an awesome bank and they took it all off, no problem. The bad news is, is refusing that they made a mistake and is blaming it on my bank. On my 4th phone call to them today, the "supervisor" wouldn't let me speak, and kept telling me it will be 5 days before they can even do anything about it. I was so mad!!

Too bad I need the stuff I ordered there for my minis, otherwise I would of just canceled the orders and said give me my money back, and I am done. I did however tell them I will NEVER order from them again, and would pass this on to my friends!


Deux Shabby Chic

I am proud to announce that I am a new member of the DSC club! I found out yesterday, and it made my whole day! I am also planning on joining in the Oct. mini swap with DSC, so I am super excited about that as well!!

This month is going to be packed with mini goodness, and I can't wait! I started making the tags for my TWS mini last night. I was just playing around with alcohol inks and made this super cute tag! I ordered a whole bunch of goodies to use in my spooky mini, so as soon as they arrive, I will start scrappin' away!!

I just wanna say Thank you again to Bona and Arlene for inviting me to the DSC club! And a Thank you to all my new DSC club friends! I look forward to getting to know each and everyone of you more! :)

Welcome to my new blog! I have had a couple of blogs over the years, one on Livejournal (which I still have) and one on typepad. But being the cheapie that I am, I cancelled my typepad blog months ago. So, I figured it was time for me to have a blog back! My scrappyness needs a home!
Here are some of my recent LO's.

I also have a couple of minis planned this month that I am really excited about! I recently joined The Scrap Beach website, and am participating in the TWS October Mini swap. Our theme is "Spooky". I can't wait to make this mini!!
