News and Blog Train

Where has the time gone?!!!  I've not been feeling well since Christmas time and can't believe it's already the middle of January!!  Time flies when you nap all day and/or have med-head!

Well I really have to tell you about a few things before I get to the blog train.  I've been wanting to do a Project Life type scrapbook for a while.  But I've never had the time to.  That's when I got this idea:  I'm probably not the only one who doesn't have the time to make a Project Life book from scratch.  Normally I don't really care for quick pages, but I thought this would be a time when a quick page would be perfect.

We always start these big projects with the best of intentions, but after a few weeks something happens that takes priority and then you fall behind. Falling behind leads to discouragement. Well, don't be discouraged! I've done most of the hard work for you. All you have to do is add your photos and your journalling. 

If you are anything like me, you want to personalize your quick page so that it looks like you put a little effort into it.  So I have also made a coordinating kit of embellishments. 

 You could even turn this into a hybrid project if you would like. The sky's the limit now that you will have all this extra time on your hands thanks to Project: Life's Busy!

You can find these products in my store at Scraps N Pieces, as well as in the P365/P52 category there.  They are reasonably priced under $2.50 each.  Look for my next edition coming in February!

I'm very busy now working on my next three kits for February!  Due to feeling poorly, I've decided to forego my planned release on January 21 and it will release in February instead.  I just haven't had the energy to work on it.  I can give you a sneak peek though:

One last thing -- I promised you a blog train.  Well, here it is!

    Also, please thank Wendy Tunison for me. I could not comment on her blog though I did download. I don't like her blog at all (the schematics, not her personally). It froze up my windows, and I could not find a way to comment at all. Probably a type-pad issue, pretty frustrating. But a lovely kit nonetheless!

  17. Oh and one more note for Wendy, she did the list totally out of order, kind of bunged up my train downloads lol. But her work is very appreciated none-the-less :)
