Who won the ATG gun???

It’s Friday!  =)  I didn’t forget about you all waiting for the retreat giveaway results.  My daughter and I were slaving away in the kitchen all day preparing and freezing meals for our family.  By the time we got to sit down it was late and I could barely think.  Sorry I left you all hangin’.

So without further ado…

Who won the ATG GUN????


The adorable Tal Rose agreed to help me pick a winner.



And the winner is…


Lisa Polley!

Lisa Polley!

Congrats, Lisa!  You just won yourself a Scotch ATG 700!

You will absolutely LOVE this tool.  If you didn’t win, don’t worry!  I will have more available for purchase (and maybe to win???) at the retreat for a MUCH better price than you will find them anywhere else.  I’m serious.  Do yourself a favor and hold out.  You will be glad you waited for this price.

One quick note before I head out… did you all see the recaps from CHA?  I was especially dazzled by the Tim Holtz booths.  I mean really.  They junk shop all year to create these amazing works of art that I would love to just live in.  If you haven’t seen them yet, you really need to check them out on Tim’s blog.  Start at this post and click through to the next several posts.  They were so amazing it took several posts to share it all.  Even if you just scan for the photos, it’s well worth the time.

You will be amazed and inspired.

Okay all, it’s Friday so I’m outta here to get the weekend cleaning done.  Have a great one!



A vacation album

Is it Friday already?  It seems that I didn’t get much crafting done this week.  Though Monday I got to spend a few hours with a dear friend “crafting”.  Honestly we did a whole lot more laughing and talking than crafting.  But, honestly, that’s one of the best parts, right?  

I’ve been working on this vacation album for a while now.  I constructed it with chipboard using a tutorial from Paper Phenomenon.  She has amazing projects.  I knew right away that I wanted to use the June kit from MemoryWorks and the Cabana kit from Cocoa Daisy to decorate this album so I waited quite impatiently for them both to get here.  It was agony waiting for that Cabana kit.  It’s the July kit (sold out, by the way) and it was a very long month of waiting. 

Here’s a few pics of my progress so far.

Am I the only one that skips around when putting together an album?  I’ll work on one section for a little bit then move on to something else.  Later I’ll go back to the first and work a little more.  It’s like that til the end for me – a little here and a little there.  I’m never sure what exactly I’ll do until it’s done. 

Aren’t those rub-ons cute?  They’re from K&Company, apart of the Smash line called Nautical Tattoo Rub-ons.  I picked those up at a craft store knowing they’d be perfect for this album.  So glad I did.  Gotta stay true to my motto:

I’d rather regret buying it that not buying it.


=)  So what’s everyone else working on?  Leave me a comment with a link or pictures.  I’d love to see some of your projects. 

Don’t forget to register for the retreat!  There’s just a few days left to enter the contest for the ATG gun.  Register by the 31st of July to get your entry in.  I’ll draw a winner on Thursday, August 1st. 

Happy Friday, y’all!


It’s Friday–Let’s Give Something Away!

Seeing as how it’s Friday and well, that’s always something to celebrate, I think we should give something away.  What do you think? 

I was thinking about how much I love my ATG gun and how really everyone who papercrafts should have one but they’re just so darned expensive… Hey, let’s give one away!

ATG-Kit-300That’s right, my friends.  I have a special giveaway for a special group of people.  Everyone who is registered for the Favorite Things Fall Retreat by July 31st at midnight will be entered in a drawing for their very own ATG 700! 

That means if you’re already registered, you are entered!  If you register in the next couple weeks, you will be entered. 

Don’t forget there is a payment plan to pay part of your registration fee now and pay the rest later and YES if you choose the payment plan you will STILL be entered. 

It’s the weekend, y’all.  Let’s have a good one!
