I didn't forget about you!!!

I PROMISE!!! LOL I bet you thought I did though! I am so sorry I didn't post yesterday! I have been a mad women trying to get the new store up and running! Some days I totally hate computers!!! Let me tell you!!!! There are some quirky little conflicts going on and I am not sure why!!! Anyway...

Not a lot to report - except I have over 70 products uploaded to the new store!! So that is pretty exciting!!! I was hoping to go fishing this afternoon with hubby and my Dad to relieve a little stress (between the death of my Uncle, the New Store, Hubby's Promotion - yeah I would say I am a little stressed!!!) BUT the store isn't ready and the river is too high - so I don't think that is going to happen after all! Bummer!!!

Speaking of fishing - I went down to the community dock the other day with hubby and I was throwing my cast net - and up I pulled this creature!!!! Talk about scary!!!

He is actually a toad fish! LOL They have these little horns that they stick up from their head that makes them look more like a devil fish!!! And he looks like he could put a hurt on you for sure! I refused to touch him and flipped him back into the water with my shoe!!! LOL

I was trying to describe the fish to my Dad so he could identify it for me... (which is how I know it is a toad fish) and he said that the old wives tale is that if you stick something in the fish's mouth (like a pencil or your finger) the fish chomps down and won't let go! You have to actually cut it off!!!! Of course my Dad said he didn't know if it was true or not as he never stuck his finger in the fish's mouth! Well that prompted me to ask my Dad where's his sense of adventure - and he replied "Not in a toad fish's mouth!" Bahahaha!!!

Don't forget (my fingers are crossed and I am saying my prayers) that the grand opening of Beloved Keepsakes Scrapbooking is tomorrow!!! Please send all your non cutter scrapbooking friends to check it out ! And I hope you check it out too!!! (I would love your feedback on the new store!!!)

And then for all my cutter friends - tomorrow is my ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY at PAPERTHREADS!!!! Sooooo - all my files are:
40% OFF
(On Saturday and Saturday only!!!)

Hope you have a great weekend!

Until Next Time!

Shocked and Suprised!

Well I have returned from the land of estates, wills, personally property and family deaths - at least for a little while! Thank you all so very much for you well wishes and prayers as my family has had to deal with this!

I have to say I came back to a HUGE to do list! There is just so much to get finished up before the grand opening of the scrapbooking division of Beloved Keepsakes. Speaking of that - I was quite shocked that not many people commented on the grand opening of my new store!!! So now I am wondering is that because you are all cutter machine owners? Do you not think it is going to go over well?? Or is it just because you haven't seen the final product yet? Come on - give me a shout I really would like to hear what you think!!!

I was very surprised when I got home to see that my Design Team Member Bec had been HARD at work even when I wasn't around!!! (I am glad someone was!!!) As always I can count on her to think outside the box and pull off not one but two layouts from the same file!!! I thought I would share these with you today!!!

Both of these layouts were made using my "Sometimes you have to kiss" file. I think it is soo awesome how she mixed up the words on each layout and it became a totally different title!!!!

Thanks BEC!!!!! As always they are AWESOME!!!!

I also was surprised to see this layout in my in-box! It was created by Jen using a file that I had designed as a free give away here on my blog a few months ago!!!! I love how she used rhinestones to give the layout a little bling!!! (I sooo love bling!!!)

I think this turned out awesome as well! And I am so grateful to Jen for sharing it with me!!!

Ok - I have got to head out - I still have about 40 products to enter into the new store! Once again I would love to get your feedback on that!

Until Next Time!


PS - Don't forget the Grand Opening of Beloved Keepsakes Scrapbooking and the Paperthreads 40% off sale is approaching fast!!! Mark your calenders now for Saturday April 26th!!!
