Hi!  Not sure why I am thinking in 3's today, but here you have it… :)

3 winners:

You all rock.  Seriously.  What great ideas you all shared for teacher gifts!  I have several that I am going to do and will be sure to share them.  Thank you thank you thank you.  If you need ideas, be sure to read the comments HERE.

And we have a winner of the CTMH set.  I randomly picked Kim R!  But since you all took so much time to give input, I did pick two more people.  For Paula C and Debra, I will send 3 packs of new goodies from Autumn Leaves.  Just for kicks. :)   I emailed the three of you to get your addresses.


Now, here are some random card shares.  Three, to be exact.

3 FAQ's:

Q: I am desperate to find the cd-holders for binders… the ones you used for clear stamp storage.  Can you tell me more details?
A: Sure.  Here is a scan of the package.  Mine are from Office Depot.  I bet there are other brands, though.  If you want to see the clear stamp storage, click HERE.

Q: Do you still have your brother-in-law's CDs still available for purchase? 
A: I should get another shipment this week and then will be able to sell them again.  Just email me. :)

Q: What kind of corner rounder do you use?
A: I use the Fiskars corner rounder squeeze punch.  I have two sizes, a tiny one and a normal one.  Love 'em.  Here is one…

1.  Fantastic news. 2Peas just announced two new awesome Garden Girls: Kristina Werner and Robyn Werlich.  They are both stampers!  Woohoo.  Please click on their name to go over and congratulate them.

2.  Oh my.  The lovely Shari Carroll is at it again.  She has a new technique article over at Hero and it is incredible.  Check it out HERE.

3.  Check out THIS cute page from Jamie Waters.  I love how her sweetness rubs off on her pages.  And I so want Colin to marry that cute daughter of hers…

3 quick requests:

1.  I am hoping that everyone has received their prizes from the Card Drive for Kids.  Some of the overseas packages may take a little longer.  However, please let me know if you haven't gotten them by this week.  It is a fear of mine that they don't make it to you!  So, please, let me know if you are waiting on goodies from me.  Oh, and Marianne Gonzales, please email me your address again.  I deleted it by accident – it was the "ditz" in me. :)  

2.  I am going through the fantastic cards you all sent for the Card Drive for Kids.  I was wondering if it would be ok for me to post some of them here – thought it would be fun?  If for some reason you wouldn't want yours shared, please email me.  I am just thinking of sharing 3 or 4 here and there – just for kicks.

3.  If you haven't heard of it yet, please try to send in some cards (holiday preferred) for the Cards For Heroes Card Drive I shared this week.  You can find out about it HERE.  What a good thing to do…

Thanks, all!

  15. Hi there… I just wanted to point out that I have finally posted the tutorial on my idea of making a “guided album”. You can find it here: http://www.creativityprompt.com/creativity-prompt-16-guided-album/ – the idea is to prepare a scrapbook, in which the recipient would only have to journal and stick pictures in – no cropping necessary…

    I went to Office Depot in Savannah, GA and purchased the CD holders and the x5. They are both manufactured by Wilson Jones. Hope this helps.
