New Release | In The Loop No. 2 + A Greatest Hits SALE!
I was working on a page a few days ago and found myself craving a frame version of my In The Loop Page Borders. And now I’m pleased to say that In The Loop No. 2: Frames & Stamps are available for purchase in my store at Oscraps. They’re 20% off through Sunday, August 14th, 2011.
I spent some time yesterday trying to organize my own products on my hard drive in order to make it easier for me to scrap with them. I organize all of my other digital supplies fairly well, but my OWN products are a different story.
While I was going through the folders to tag some items, I found myself saying “Aww, I love that one” and “Ohhhh, I need to use that again” as I unearthed treasure after treasure in my product folder.
So I grabbed a few of my favorites, and then a few turned into 15, and I marked them down 30% for the weekend. I’ve collected them all in the One Little Bird Promotions category of my store right now, along with my two latest products which are on sale through Sunday, also. (If you’re a Cage Liner subscriber, don’t forget the extra 10% savings on Janie & June – it’s in your August 8th newsletter).
And here’s the page that I was trying to scrap, the one that inspired the frames:
JOURNALING: In a conversation today I casually said “this will be his last year of elementary school” to someone and felt my chest tighten afterward. These things sneak up on me. It’s not like I’ve never said it before but today, with the beginning of your fifth grade year quickly approaching, it hit me like a bus. Like a bus taking you off to middle school. (Except don’t get your hopes up on that one, we live too close to earn yourself a bus ride.) This upcoming year will introduce a new set of responsibilities. I was suddenly hit with the realization that every few weeks I’ll be listening to you complain about crossing guard duty. I can already anticipate it – it’s so not your thing. Standing outside, helpless against the elements, waiting for dawdling kids to make their way across the street? I feel for you, buddy – it sounds like it was tailor-made to drive you insane. I anticipate that your workload will be a little heavier this year, too. Part of the “prepare you for middle school” philosophy that’s meant to keep you from feeling as though you’re being thrown to the lions as soon as you walk through those doors next year. You’re already thinking ahead, though. A few weeks ago in the car you voiced your concern over your Transformers lunch bag and how it might undermine your awesomeness in Middle School. I’ve got your back, though, I made sure to buy you a solid-colored classically designed lunch bag that’s sure to give you an air of mystery. Is he into action figures? Who knows! He has that plain lunch bag! Keep ‘em guessing, always a good strategy. It’s just like both of us to get ahead of ourselves, you still have one good year of Transformers lunch bag usage left, if you choose to accept it. Because here we go….
