The Mayan calendar begins over again on December 21. Some people say it's the end of the world; some say that this is just like us flipping the calendar to a new year. All I know for sure is that on December 20th, I'm going to party like there's no to-Maya!

And I have more good news! December 11 is my next release date. Here's a peek at what is coming
Monday, 3 December 2012
Today's "national celebration day" is National Roof Over Your Head Day. That is something I do when I start feeling sorry for myself for whatever reason... I remind myself that I am so lucky. I do have a warm roof over my head, I have clothes and shoes, I have food and I can eat daily, I live in a country of peace, and I do not have a serious illness. When I think about the people who do not have what I do, it somehow makes my problems seem so small.

Remember, each part of this kit is available for only $1 at Scraps N Pieces, but only until Dec 7. On December 8, I will bundle it all up and add a couple more parts that will also be available separately for you if you pick up the kit during BNP week.

My entire store is 50% off until the end of the day!

I hope everybody in America had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Did you get your fill of turkey and pumpkin pie? And how many days are you going to be eating leftovers? ;)
And how about Black Friday? Are you one of the "crazy" people who are up at 2 am to be at the store when it opens? Do you wait a little to go later in the afternoon after the door crasher specials are done? Or do you shop online, like I did? I don't know about you, but I cleaned up! My husband was pretty disappointed because he went to a store 30 minutes after it opened and all the door crasher specials were gone already. He had gone there to get a Blackberry Playbook for only $44! But I got a great deal because I sat at my computer and shopped. Not only did I get quite a few digi scrap items at bargain prices, but I also got my husband's Christmas gift for a price so good, I almost expect police at my door saying I stole it! LOL
If you missed out yesterday, you can still pick up some bargains. Everything is 50% off in my store all the way through until Cyber Monday ends! This includes my new releases, Holly Days, Li'l Black Dress Alpha and Five Shades of Grey!
I wanted to mention too, today is "Tie One On Day". Nope, not the kind where you go on a bender and drink Saturday away. This is all about aprons! Such a crazy thing to have an entire day to recognize, but I love it when they trick you like that!
Have a great weekend, and happy shopping!

Holly Days is on sale November 22 for 30% off, on Black Friday it will be a whopping 50% off, and then goes back to 30% off from November 24 until November 30.
The North Stars have really stepped up and hit this out of the park with their layouts they made to inspire you.
And here are the links to the North Stars blogs
But WAIT! There's more!
Have you been looking for an elegant black and white kit? TNS has a beautiful one being released on Black Friday.
5 Shades of Grey
is destined to be a best seller, just like the book with a similar title. However, this gorgeous monochromatic kit is much more suitable for scrapbook layouts!
There are 41 glittery, shiny and classic elements inside this kit. The 14 patterned papers, 5 glitter papers and 5 solid papers are a perfect complement to the elements and they will make your LOs exude class.
As a bonus with purchase, the LBD (Li'l Black Dress) Alpha is included for free; a $2.99 value.
It is also available for sale separately. It's sparkly and just like a li'l black dress, it is a must-have staple for every scrapper!
You can pick up 5 Shades of Grey on Black Friday for 50% off, then it goes to 30% off on November 24 until November 30th.
Once again the North Stars were very busy and they made some fantastic pages to show off:

Are you wondering what special day it is today? Well I don't really like any of the choices. First one is National Blow Bagpipes Day. I'd rather listen to nails on a blackboard. (My apologies to any bagpipe players that may be reading this). An alternative to Bagpipe Day is even worse. It's Have a Bad Day Day. No thanks! And finally, I guess this one is the winner -- it's World Toilet Day. So everybody go celebrate having a toilet!

Also, if you haven't signed up for my newsletter yet, it's not to late to do it before my next one comes out. You don't want to miss it - there's going to be an exclusive gift in it only for newsletter subscribers! If you wait, you will have to pick it up in the store later. The link to sign up is on the sidebar of my blog.
I looked at my little app today and found out that today is Use Less Stuff Day. At first when I read it I thought it said Useless Stuff, which of course changes the meaning drastically! But nope - today is a reminder that sometimes we get a little excessive in the things we need vs the things we want department. And it's also a reminder to keep it green - Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Recover.
That's all for today folks!

Keystone Scraps has a brand new 'outside the box' holiday kit that focuses on the craziness of the season!
Merry Mayhem, is a light-hearted kit themed on the chaos and endless preparation leading up to the holidays. This kit has 20 patterned papers in bright, zany colors, along with 9 coordinating cardstocks. Merry Mayhem is perfect for scrapping all your Christmas and Holiday photos, gift wrapping adventures and the general chaos we seem to be surrounded in when all the gifts are opened and the papers are strewn across the floor! This fun kit is jam-packed with 67 fun unique elements including a tree, snowflakes, stamps, star, flairs, flowers, frames, decorations and "to do lists" as well as 4 fabulous "Mayhem Monsters" to create a little mischief on your layouts! It is available at Scraps-N-Pieces for 30% off thru November 22nd... plus you will get this fun 'Cookie Chaos' Add On FREE with purchase! (You can also pick it up separately!)
I was thinking that the days before Christmas are hectic for us, but what about dogs? So I checked a public domain site I like and found these photos of dogs dressed festively. I thought they looked pretty humiliated -- kind of like how my dog looks when she has to wear the Cone of Shame. And that's how I came up with this LO:

First of all, I downloaded an app that I'm not sure how useful it will be, but it is entertaining. The Ultimate Holiday. For example, did you know that today is National Pickle Day? I'll bet you didn't! But now, aren't you glad you know?! I would like to celebrate by going out for fried pickles. (Don't say ew until AFTER you've tried them and then I bet you won't want to say ew). I hadn't tried them until a few years ago because I thought they sounded disgusting, but now that I have, I actually get cravings for them! lol
And now I'll get to the contest. While I was away, my minions took over the lab. Now for those who have just found me recently, I'll back up a bit and explain quickly. I held a CT call in July but because I'm off-the-wall, I put my own little twist on it. I called myself the Evil Genius trying to take over digiworld and I advertised for minions. It was a very successful call and I got myself a great team of ladies, who I actually don't think of as minions. They are stars -- The North Stars to be exact. However every once in a while we jump back to the gag and become the Evil Genius and her minions. So back to now....
The minions took over the lab while I was away. I hope you get my newsletter because Melissa did a fantastic job on it and she made some graphics that are phenomenal to go along with the whole minion thing. If you didn't, well, you better sign up for it now so you never miss anything cool like that again! Sign up link is on the side of my blog somewhere.
Now my minions are feeling remorseful for being naughty while I was away. In fact, poki made a lovely freebie for you using my kit Antiquities and Curiosities. And this is (finally) where the contest comes in. It's always common courtesy to leave a comment when you download a freebie, but this time it could pay off for you to use your manners! If you download this freebie, leave a thank you to poki and on November 20 at noon Central time I will have Mr Random choose one lucky person to get a coupon for 50% off their choice of one of these new releases coming near the end of November.

Ok, I better head back to reality-world. I have 2 new kits coming out next week and I want to make sure they are perfect for you before I release them!
