Doing the Happy Dance!!

Yup, I'm doing the happy dance!! I have a happy announcement! As of January 1, 2008, you can now find all my products at Digital Freebies as well as still at OAKS!!! Isn't that fabulous?? I'm so excited, since DF is the very first scrap site I ever visited and posted at. It was where I got hooked! I remember looking at all the fabulous stuff in the store and thinking I had to have it all!! Then I was happily picked up by Angela Sharrow to serve on my very first Creative Team! Soon after that I joined Maria LaFrance's Creative Team! Talk about dreams coming true! I was having a blast! A few months after that I got bit by the design bug. And it's been a wild ride ever since! I remember when I first started designing at HODS (may she rest in peace) I dreamed that some day I could sell my stuff at a big store like DF. And here we are, almost one year later and that dream has come true!

I tell ya, I feel just like Gizelle. Well, after she decided she liked the real world and was in love with Patrick Dempsey. LOL

Just a reminder, you only have 3 days left to purchase all my goodies at OAKS for 35% off! In fact, most of my paper packs & element packs are priced under $2.00!! What a steal! Even my brand new kit, Weathered Winter, is on sale! You can get the whole collection (2 paper packs, 1 element pack) for only $1.95 each . . . that's less than $6 for the whole set!! WOWZER!! But remember, this deal is only good through Midnight on New Year's Eve! So hurry over and stock up on all my goodies!

And don't forget to check back on January 1st to see what new item I have rolling with the new year! It's yummy and totally shabbylicious!

Thanks for reading, and Happy New Year!!
