Well. Some Updates.

This blog has gotten ridiculously lagged!!! Everything seems to happen on Facebook these days...

Anyway, MScraps is closing their doors on November 15th. I'm very sad--it's been a wonderful few years, and I have made some excellent friends there. But life rolls on, and I'm rolling over to... Oscraps! (Not sure what happened to Nscraps. [joke] ;) ) So...

And you'll notice... new logo! Made with my very own Sunshine Poppy font, and KG's Skinny Latte for the tag. Heh. =)

The next few days are going to be the best days ALL YEAR LONG to get my products. MScraps is having a huge iDSD sale, with $1 flash sales--this will include personal, and commercial use products. I will bring my retired products back at their hyper-reduced price for the length of the week, and at OScraps, the buy 1, get one free sale. So get your pennies ready!!!

Beeeeeeeeeeeeeg Summer Sale! 50% off + $1 Specials!

And that, my friends, about says it all. *grins* A good time to pick up my newest kits half off, and get some old stuff you've been wanting too! This is good for both my commercial, *and* personal use store.
Here's what's on sale for today, for example:

And last night, I made this little pair of jewelled earrings, too:

Emerald green aventurine stones; gold artistic wire; hypo-allergenic ear wires. Pattern by Nicole Hanna, by permission.

Wherein We Find That Productivity Overdrive Has Its Costs

So, I had a heart attack last week. No kidding. Apparently it's congenital--one of the vessels supplying the heart, the bottom part of it, is teensy weensy in one portion, and that go kind of blocked, or almost blocked, and a tiny portion of the heart muscle was affected. And on the way to the hospital in the ambulance we found out that morphine makes my throat swell up, too. Sure was an adventurous day!! =)

However, except for reaching my fatigue limit a heck of a lot faster, I seem to be doing just fine. So, one day at a time, shooting for many more of them! Happily, school is now out, so I can do art besides the graphic design, and I'm even hoping for more jewelry ventures soon, too!

This was my little art journal contribution for Week 15 that I just finished tonight (yes, I'm a wee bit behind):

And, I finally finished a new kit that I started *before* the heart attack: Chance of Thunder! It's a great kit for storms, either the kind in the sky, or the kind in the heart.

The CT made some super-fun pages, too!

Productivity Overdrive!

Well, May was a HUGELY BUSY month for me. I had to finish (well, start and finish) a 5'x18" banner for a Midsummer Masquerade fundraiser ball in town. It's been sooooooooo long since I've painted on canvas--I was really scared to start! The 2nd day was the worst, but on the last day I suddenly hit my groove, and the whole thing turned out ok. (You can see it on the fundraiser auction website here.) Plus, I was busy making TWO free kits for 2 different scrapping sites. More on those later in June! So then I figured that if I was going to be featured in June, I should probably have some new stuff in my shops... and *boom!* Creativity happened!

So, I have a new kit for you called Flying Colors (I'd polled my fans on Facebook about whether "Tickled Pink" or "Flying Colors" caught their fancy more, and the latter won). It's nominally about graduation from any grade, but also of course about that exciting and fearful time of change, when you don't really know what's going to happen next... I had to show the brushes, and the word art, separately (click on them to see them full size), cuz of course the kit is huge!

And this, is a coordinating freebie!!

  Not only all that, but I also participated in the MScraps Memory Mix collection, where you can get mix and match pieces for either $1 or $2, depending on how full the packs are. Mine's a delightful collection of beach-themed brushes called Sunsplashed, taken from photographs of my own wanderings, of course!

And furthermore, while I was coming up with my little bead scatters for the Flying Colors kit, I just went ahead and extracted a whole BUNCH of beads, and put them in my commercial use shop (though they're good for CU or PU!):

I will leave you to imagine how long it took to use the pen tool to extract all those babies. Heh.

So there you go! And the end of school is approaching, which means I have less and less to do each day as Allen claws his way through the end of the curriculum--and for me, that means MORE TIME! Can't wait for summer vacation!

Hope everybody has a wonderful weekend playing. =)

New: Painted Masks 7!

Oops, I skipped one in the PU shop, so here it is: Painted Masks 7. A couple of these are full page, and all of them are at least 3 times the size shown, so they're really wonderful as clipping masks, and you can combine them like I did on my layout below. And--a Wonderful Wednesday release, so 50% off through today!
