Is it Spring yet?

Is it Spring yet?

Yes, it is!!! Woohoo! Happy first day of Spring! Or was that yesterday, since 2016 is a leap year? Oh – who cares, it is definitely, officially Spring now here 😀

I love sitting on our terrace, snuggled up in a warm jacket or even with a blanket (because those first sunny days are usually still pretty chilly), enjoying the light and the sounds of nature’s re-awakening. Yesterday the birdsong was joined by a funny, crunching noise – when I curiously looked around to figure out what it was, I saw a cute little brown mouse, sitting underneath a rose bush, happily nibbling away on a peanut. I wonder where he got that, maybe from a birdfeeder? Too cute – too bad I don’t come with a build-in camera so I could show you a picture, lol.

(We’ve had this mouse – or some ancestors- living in our garden for years, he (or they, lol) luckily never come into our house, even so our terrace door is often open – maybe they’re scared of our guinea pigs? ;D

All the Springtime songs and smells did inspire me to create a happy Spring collection:

Happy Beginnings in 2016

Happy Beginnings in 2016

We shared our NYE with Toiny Westberry from theStudio.  It was fun, it was festive and a bit wild at times.  Exactly what a wonderful New Year’s Eve should be.  I hope to get a page scrapped soon but I didn’t want to wait on my mojo because The Midnight Hour is still on sale AND I have another freebie that coordinates beautifully (in case you’re waiting on some mojo too).

I truly love this kit.  Diane and I were specifically thinking of a kit for New Year’s Eve when we created it but I think it has the potential to dress up photos from any occasion.  Since it’s the NYE photos that most of us have in our camera and the NYE stories that are most fresh in our mind I wanted to share this lovely page border today.

I’m looking for inspiration for next year.  It’s one of my resolutions to start earlier and bring you more of what you need to scrap your memories.  I would love to hear about your NYE celebrations and if you have special requests for a new NYE kit be sure to give me as many details as possible.

The Midnight Hour with ADB-Designs is in sale this week for 50% off.  And come back before the sale ends.  I’ll have at least one more freebie for you.

Have a great weeekend!

Christmas Carol Blog Hop 2016

Christmas Carol Blog Hop 2016

Woot – it’s time for theStudio’s annual Christmas Carol Blog Hop!!!! 😀

My chosen carol this year is “Frosty the snowman” – maybe because I’m cold almost all the time during Winter and my husband loves to tease me by calling me “Frosty” (according to him I somehow manage to get my hand, feet and nose below room temperature, lol).

I had a lot of fun drawing the different snowmen and creating a kit around them, although my hot beverage consumption did rise considerably while I was playing in the snow, even it it was only digital snow ;D. Hope you will like the result, there are 14 papers and 30 elements in the downloads, make sure you get both parts.

And those of you who get my Newsletter can look forward to a huge set of coordinating solid papers 😀

Here’s a peek at the kit (it will be available here until Jan 2nd) – the download links are below the preview. Enjoy – and have a very merry Christmas and a wonderful new year!!!

Round Robin 2 – Excuse The Mess (with Manda – Nibbles Skribbles

Round Robin 2 – Excuse The Mess (with Manda – Nibbles Skribbles

Hello!  Min is on vacation this week but her Round Robin – Round 2 is in the store at The Studio and ready for your very colorful pages and projects.  This week her partner is Manda aka Nibbles Skribbles and they have a real treat for you!

Clutter, dust, dishes and piles. Mess. Homes are messy places, and often the cleaning falls down the to-do list to make room for activities that are far more pleasant than cleaning and organizing. Whether you want to scrap photos of the messy situations, show off pages of the hard work you put into cleaning and organizing or simply get yourself organized – Excuse the Mess is the perfect collection for you!

Love primary colors?  Love a discount on your digital scrapbooking supplies?  You’re going to L.O.V.E. Excuse The Mess.  Be sure to take a look at the word art.  My favorite is “A clean house is a sign of a broken computer”.  I actually have a sign with that over my desk.

The Excuse The Mess Collection is on sale for $9.99 and if you participate in the Round Robin Challenge you can get a coupon for up to 40% off next weeks release.  The Excuse The Mess Page Kit and all of the extras are 30% off.

Christmas Carol Blog Hop 2013

Christmas Carol Blog Hop 2013

Wow, 2013 is almost over, Christmas is approaching fast… and that also means: It is time for theStudio’s annual Christmas carol blog hop! Woohooo!!

Picking a carol is by no means an easy task, lol….while I was pondering the options this year, I realized that there seem to be so many carols with snow and cold in them, even so half the world will probably be celebrating Christmas with nice warm weather and sunshine. Soooo, I asked Robyn to recommend a carol from “down under”, so I could have some Summer feeling while creating (well, at least for as long as I  would not look out of the window…lol).

“Six white boomers” proved to be an instant hit with my family, we have all caught one another humming the tune for more than once. If you’re not familiar with this song about Santa helping a lost baby kangaroo you could listen to it here on youtube.

And here’s now a look at my interpretation of the six white boomers ;D – make sure you get all three downloads!
