Hey folks!

I've got some great news! I found a website that allows you to set up your products in a store atmosphere instead of them being scattered all over my blog. I know it's a pain to hunt for the I've been busily adding all my kits and elements this morning and I think I have finally got it ready for you guys.

This will make things so much more organized and easier for you to find the kits and things you may want. Payment is through PayPal or by credit card just like before.

I've also decided to retire 12 of my older kits. They are all marked down to $1.00 each so grab them now. They will be gone from my blog and my other stores on Friday, Sept. 19th.

As I told you a few days ago I have entered the SAS-y lady designer contest at Stone Accent Studio. Each week we will have a design challenge. We then post our kits and you can download them for FREE. They will pick their winners from your votes!

Falling Moments and a freebie

Morning folks!

It's been a long week and I've been working on several projects along with playing Mommy! Yep, school is back in full swing and with my youngest playing football and another going to the local community college this fall, I am keeping some crazy hours! Just this week my youngest had a scrimmage game on Saturday, a JV game on Monday, and his first Varsity game last night. They beat their county rival, Chapmanville (and my alma mater), 22-14 last night and it was an exciting game. Our boys were down 14-6 with 4 minutes left in the game. They scored to tie it up with 2 minutes left. And for the final touch down, they scored on a fumble with a minute left. Like I told my daughter and her ain't over til it's

Here's my little football star in a layout I threw together for his MySpace.

Anyways, I wanted to tell you about one of my projects before I get to the new kit. I am competing for a designers position at Stone Accent Studio
