April's Right Around the Corner...

... and ACK! That means my sweet little boy is turning 13! Not that "little" applies in any real sense. Heh.

Meanwhile, on the business front, lots is going on. For one thing, I've teamed up with Tiramisu Design to make the PickleBerryPop free-with-purchase kit this month--buy $10 worth of stuff, and get our kit for free!

Also, I have three new products of my one. Happy Pack 1 is a minikit with fun colors and a lively feel. I had a lot of fun making it, so I'm hoping to do a few more every once in a while. Julie made a wonderful layout with it, too!

Also, during Spring Break while the guys were gone, I had time to play around with smelly art stuff and made some super fun scribblies that are also popping with color! You can find these in my Commercial Use section at PickleBerryPop (but you can also use them in a Personal use manner as well):

 And finally, I mustn't forget to mention that PBP is having a "subscriber push" -- which in my case translates to "get Heather off her butt and make her have a newsletter, with freebies." SO! First step is... freebies! *laugh* I have to get subscribers in order to send out a newsletter, right? And if you sign up for my newsletter, here's what you'll get in your "you're subscribed" welcome letter:

And here's my newsletter link in case you missed all the hints above:

Hope you're in a colorful mood too! ♥

Seasonal Post Number One for 2016

Well, in a quick and dirty update, we travelled across the country, and back, and it was glorious. But it took a whole month and then some (27 days), and consequently I only now feel like I'm somewhat catching up...

Arizona, near the Mexican border

Much of the country we drove through looked like that--huge skies bounded by low but highly photogenic mountains, with flatlands of drought in between (I was struck by how the plants positioned themselves for maximum water intake). Hugely gorgeous and mysterious to this wetlands Swiss/Western Coast girl...

Southern California, right over the Coast Range, with ocean--more familiar landscape!
Well, suffice it to say that lots has been going on--including in my business life. I started with PickleBerryPop, which is where all my commercial use products can be found as well. These are my newest products--and I have a totally new Collection coming out tomorrow, as well!

And, I'm starting a newsletter! Knowing me, it will be more of a random thing featuring coupons and freebies and updates on scrapbooking, art, photography, jewelry--you know, everything in one place. Anyway, to subscribe, just click the link in the right-hand column all the way at the top, or use this handy link: . I still have to get a list going--right now I only have 2 subscribers... one of which is me. *giggles*

Hope you have a most wondrous weekend! We're having actual sun today, for the first time in a while...
