Gosh, sorry that I have been MIA. I had a lot of prep for Creativation and I have been transitioning my computer from old to new. I am one of like five people who still use Windows 7. I was warned about the support ending but have been dreading it. I do have a new computer but changing everything over has been a challenge. I am getting there (very slowly)  :)

(Huge Snowflakes Dies, Winter Greetings, Snowy Salutations)

Baywatch’s fans were predominantly women. 65% of viewers were female, with its number-one audience being women aged 18 to 34. It turns out that the female viewers liked that the show’s lead characters were strong, independent, heroic women who were saving lives and were equal to the men.

Hello friends. I am thrilled that so many of you are purchasing the new Half Moon papers. I love them and I am so glad that you do too!

I am excited to announce that I reordered our Forest Whimsy stamp set. I released that stamp set back in 2011 - so a resurgence in interest is fun! I will announce when they get back into stock (which should be around two weeks) I appreciate your patience :)

I used our NEW paper pack called Half Moon.
I named it that because the entire collection is black and white. I am from upstate NY where we have the most delicious HALF MOON cookies - chocolate cookies with white and black frosting.

Did you know that you can run our papers through a hot foil machine (minc) to add a metallic finish to our patterned papers? You can also color our papers with markers and it won't smudge the black print. Our papers are truly unique

I used a Copic marker to add red to the plaid paper

 (sentiment is from the paper pack) 

I used Copic markers to add four colors to the triangle paper. I used the same green markers to color white string to coordinate perfectly

 (sentiment is from the paper pack) 

I used Copic markers to add four colors to the chevron paper. 
You can't see it, but I added white glitter to some of the stripes as well.

I used three brown Copic markers to add color to the cheetah print paper. 

Thanks so very much for joining us.
