New Collections & a Freebie

Since I’ve been slacking once again, I actually have 2 collections to show you. Both with a spring theme, but done in completely different styles. The first one is called Blooming Spring. When I was looking for some inspiration for a spring theme, I ran across this bit from a poem by A.A. Milne: “She turned to the sunlight and shook her yellow head, and whispered to her neighbor: ‘Winter is dead.'” If the name A.A. Milne sounds familiar, he’s the author for the Winnie the Pooh books, but he also wrote some wonderful poems that have been sadly overlooked.

So, why did I chose this quote? I was and still am that little girl announcing the end of Winter … but I even add a bit of a foot stomp. I am not a winter person. Like the flowers, I wilt when winter comes along. But with the first hint of spring, I come alive just like mother nature. I captured this “attitude” for Blooming Spring with a joyous burst of color reflecting the world around me when spring once again visits us. Since my birthday sale is still going on in my stores at theStudio and Jilbert’s Bits of Bytes , you can get this entire collection is 50% off. Here’s a look …

The second collection that I’m going to show off is part of theStudio’s Garden Party Coordinated Collection. It’s called A Spot of Tea and my inspiration was a tea party out in one’s lush flower garden. Each pack is $1 thru April 28th and there’s also a collection of 8 products for $8 just in case you didn’t feel like clicking 8 times to add the entire thing. This is initially available exclusively at theStudio.

AND, as noted, I have a freebie for you. It’s a set of 3 painted edges. A matching set of 3 was in today’s newsletter. If you’re not a subscriber … why not??? LOL!!! I do keep an archive of my newsletters just in case, so you can catch-up here. So here’s the preview … just click it to download the edges.

If you are really into freebies, be sure to check my Facebook page for a set of journal cards that Dona made.

That’s it for today … HUGS!!!
