So the end of the month is drawing near, and I wanted to give you a heads up on a sale you might not want to miss. CW Picket and Co. is offering a coupon to her store for $25 value. You pay $10. That's a $15 free gift basically. I think that is prety generous and a good deal if you are looking to try out her designs.
Here's a preview of her ad. You can go buy it at MSS here.
I love sales like these when I am trying someone new. It lets me buy whatever I like for less cost, and heck, nowadays you know we could all afford to save a little!
Here's a few previews of her work. I love her style. And I'm not just saying that because she sells at MSS. (Although that might be WHY she sells at MSS hehe)
Today I get the joy of going to stand in line at the Office of Vital Records to get a copy of Maia's birth certificate. It seems we lost it in our move. I hope they don't make me wait all day, but in case they do... I am taking my cell phone so I can play in my email while I wait. I love what you can do with a cell phone these days.
I went to the paper scrap store yesterday and I thought I would try a grab bag. So I ventured to the box where they keep them and checked them all for weight, size, etc. And no, you can't tell through a paper bag what's in there no matter how hard you try. It was $3. When I got it home, I ripped it open. Only to find a bunch of mix and match stuff that doesn't match. And Christmas stuff. And volleyball stuff. And boy stuff. I have to say I like digital grab bags much better. But it made me think. Here we are, digital designers, always being pressured to put more more more in our bags. And coordinate them but add a few extras that don't necessarily go with the rest but are our best work. And then REVEAL THEM. And sell them for pennies on the dollar.
WOW, those paper scrap stores have it easy on their grab bags. They put their old "Hard to Sell" items in their bags! If I did that, I'd get scathing emails and likely be publicly flogged on all those blogs.
I ain't complainin though. I love making my grab bags. But, I just thought I would compare the paper world to the digi world for a minute. All done now lol.
