It's the Weekend!!!

Can you believe it's August already??? This summer is just flying by. I still have to make appts for the kids for their yearly check ups - ugh.

My sister-in-law was in town last week and came to visit with her twin girls. They are soooo cute & adorable. I wish they could have stayed longer. AND my sister-in-law is a WildTree representative and convinced me to sign up under her. So, I'm a WildTree representative/consultant as well!!!

If you don't know what Wildtree is, it is a company that sells culinary products that are natural - containing no additives, preservatives, MSG or food dyes. They are especially known for their wonderful pressed Grapeseed oils and culinary blends.

Since finding out that my husband has coronary heart disease, cooking healthier is more important to me than ever. And since he inheritied it, there's a good chance that my kids are prone to it as well. So, I have to cook smarter for them as well.

You can check out their products (and order on-line) here:

In digiscrapping news, Ocean Wide Designs is opening a new store at SUNshine Studio Scraps!!!

Here's one of her latest kits, Suitcases and Maps:

It's the Weekend!!!

Wow - has it really been over 2 weeks since I last posted?  I could have sworn I posted since July 4th!  But then, a lot has happened.  The day after Independence Day, my husband went into the hospital for a screening procedure.  It turned out that one of the main arteries to his heart was blocked & blocked badly.  The cardiologist put a stent in the artery to open it up. 

What was supposed to be a routine out-patient procedure turned into an overnight stay in the hospital.  Now, he's on lots of medications, including a heavy duty blood thinner.  My world has been completely turned upside down.  I was not prepared for this.  This has totally thrown me off.

Okay - enough of the heavy stuff - onto some fun stuff!!!
Ocean Wide Designs has a new kit out call "Blessed....After All,"  (I know, fitting huh?)  It a collab kit with Ninigoesdigi.

and if you buy this beautiful kit before July 31st, you get the matching alpha set free!!!

More fun info:    Ocean Wide Designs and Ninigoesdigi are the featured designers at Zig Zag Scraps for Birds On a Wire (BOW).  They have special challenges & freebies & other goodies:

Here's a layout I made for their first challenge:

I bought this collab kit & used it to make that page.  It's on sale for 30%, plus I got the coordinating alpha for free!!!  So, go check it out - go shopping & get scrapping!

Happy Birthday Hannah!!!

Happy Birthday to my niece, Hannah!  I love you so much!!!!  XXXXOOOO
Sorry I haven't been blogging much - too much going on.  Maybe I can tell about next week when things calm down.

Some sad news - Enchanted Studio Scraps has suddenly, and unexpectedly, closed.  So, three of my designers have been scrambling for stores to sell.  That's one of the reasons why I haven't been here much.  Why show off my layouts when there's no place to buy them.  Since ESS made all the designers exclusive to their site only - it left the designers w/o any other store to fall back on.

And another store is closing - Two Little Pixels.  They will close at the end of this month.  I think they may be having a closing sale.  So if there's anything you had your eye on, now's the time to get it.
