Happy (inter)National Scrapbooking Day!!

Hi everyone!  It is Gina, and I am back from a loong road of recovery this month from getting my tonsils out.  NOT fun!!!  Although it was quite a rough few weeks, I am hoping to escape my usual monthly bout of Strep throat and get back on a regular schedule of being a mom, designing, and just living and enjoying life again!!

So, what other great way to get back into the swing of things here at W&W than with a SALE! It is iNSD and a great time to put some new goodies in the shoppe!  I have a new set of Templates that will make scrapping your photos (ANY photos) a snap!  It is called “It’s Your LIFE!” and is lovely in its simplicity.  As always, the focus is on the PHOTOs and the story you want to tell.

Also, if you have been looking for some baby elements or albums, you will love what I have just put in the shoppe!  My little sister Amy just had her first baby this week, and I was inspired to make a simple, lovely, modern-looking kit that coordinates with the new Template set.

For all of you that are following faithfully with your Sweet & Simple LIFE 365, never fear! I will be releasing the set for May SOON! It will be slightly delayed this month due to my surgery, but I assure you I am working hard to catch up!  In the meantime, treat yourself to some new goodies (or old goodies) with the sale, and don’t forget to use the coupon 25OFF25 if you spend $25 or over!

Well that is all from me for now, keep a close watch on this blog, the lovely CT ladies have lots of fun games and giveaways ready for you this weekend!  To start things off, let me know what fun things you are doing this weekend, and I will pick 2 ladies in the comments to win a couple $$ coupons to spend during the sale!

EDIT: We have our winners!  Congrats to Tanya & Amber565 who’ve won a $15 coupon to the shoppe – You’ve Got Mail!

Have fun and have a wonderful NSD!! xo!

  4. I won’t get much time online this weekend. It is my 12th Wedding Anniversary on Sunday. We also have our newest grandbaby and her sister (plus parents of course) in town for the weekend. I can’t pass up time with my little angels. I will be enjoying what I can catch though. I love just surfing around and getting a taste from a bunch of different sites and how they celebrate.

    I hope everyone has a great time this weekend, whether in iNSD activities or not.

  8. Well I have a big surprise this weekend. My son and his wife and three little ones ages 4,3 and 1, surprised us and drove in from Maryland, all the way down to Florida. What a wonderful surprise. My 4 year old granddaughter just told me it’s time for kissy time… so you can imagine what I will be doing. And oh the photos ops! Love it and love the great sale. Going shopping first in the shoppe then to an older granddaughter’s soccer game, then just enjoying my babies.

  10. Scrapping and spending time with my boys!! Gearing up for date day (golfing) with the hubby.

  11. On Friday we were at traditional “witches burning” – a big fire with a wooden cross with a figure bounded to it. My DD was dressed as a witch too and her brother was her pet animal – bear. After lots of competitions and a wild dance, all the witches, children and parents with Chinese lantern went to a parade with the knits horse-ride at the head. The celebration ends up with a beautiful huge fireworks above the river!!!

    The celebration continues today – with a knight horse-ride parade and tournament.

  12. I’m glad you’re feeling better and designing again!! How many sisters do you have?!? :) This looks great and I can’t wait to see the S&S!

  13. Wishing you a continued speedy recovery from your tonsillectomy. And congrats to your sister on the new baby! I’ll be working this weekend, but sneaking online every once in a while to see what’s happening in iNSD!

  14. I will be spending time with my mom, visiting this weekend and certainly looking for scrapbooking deals today!

  15. This is the first time in years that I DON’T have plans on iNSD. That means I can actually ENJOY all the action going on. BTW: I tried to use that coupon code (25OFF25) and it tells me that I can only use it once (which was my plan) and it didn’t take the 25% off. ??? Hope you get better.

  16. I will enjoy my weekend by trying to do some scrapping and also volunteering time cooking and serving dinner tonight at a local fraternal organization. Maybe work but fun too. Hope you get to feeling better.
