Happy Easter.

So, are you on pinterest? If not, you should be. It's this fabulous way to keep track of all the great ideas you see all over the web and intend to "try" someday!  You can get an account at www.pinterest.com. Be careful! It's addicting!

This Easter, Molly and I decided to try out some of our cute Easter pins. We had some success, and some not so much.  Our first non-success didn't even warrant a photo.  We tried this:  http://pinterest.com/pin/129337820518638370/. Epic Fail. The dye wiped right off the eggs and just made a huge mess. I also tried the SU reinkers with the same result.  Rats, it looks so pretty on our cards!!

Next, we tried this one:  http://pinterest.com/pin/129337820520994186/.  This worked great! We used black electrical tape (right out of the dance bag) and made some neat patterns.







 
Next up:  dyed deviled eggs. I love this one- and it worked perfectly! The colors even intensifed as they say.  (and it helps that my Sweetie makes the most delicious deviled eggs as well!)










And finally, the peep kabobs!  Here's the pin:   http://pinterest.com/pin/129337820520988324/.  Ours didn't come out quite so pretty, but we totally didn't overthink them either. We think they are pretty cute!


 
We hope you had a great day today as well. We are disappointed that our annual egg hunt is being rained out...but I'm sure we will find something else to do with our 100+ filled eggs. Poker anyone??

and second...a fun, sneak peak discount!!!

Maybe you're into Project Life, or have seen SMASH Books? Well, meet This and That, a sneak peak of a new product line that is available at a discount until Apr 30th. 

Read On . . .
  • We're introducing the line with these five products, but we'll be adding more This and That stuff as time goes on.
  • Bundle Dates: March 23-April 30 (remember the items that come in the bundle will be available in May and in the new catalog, but we're only offering the discounted bundled until April 30).
  • You can place orders on any order type (customer, workshop, or online).
  • You can get as many This and That products or bundles as you want.
  • You can buy the This and That products separately. But why would you do that when you can get all five together and save 15 percent?
  • Did your spidey eyes see that two of our In Colors (Calypso Coral and Pool Party) are included in the products? Your eyes were right. You'll just have to check out the catalog transition information in April to see what that's all about.

My paper pumpkin!!

Have you got yours? Read below then hop over to www.mypaperpumpkin.com to read and learn more. Don't forget to choose me, Kathleen Gallaher as your demonstrator!

So what is it? Each month, it's a different crafting treat. Everything you need (but glue) to make something adorable.

My first kit arrived today. Your first kit will look the same. It has the clear block you will use for the ones to come!  Here is what you get when you open the box. (Oooh, so fancy!).  Follow on kits will vary by month. You will receive whatever the latest month's kit is when you sign up. In addition, you can always go in and opt in and opt out month by month. The only problem is that you can't see it before you decide.  Each month, the kit is a surprise, even to us demonstrators!!!




All of your supplies will always be precut. In fact, these basic gray cards are acutally white inside! Perfect to add your handwritten greeting.   All the die cuts are made of high quality cardstock and are sticky!


Hmm, I'm not sure how to get my photo flipped to be right side up! Well, anyways, you can see that a full color brochure comes with each kit and gives you step by step instuctions. But really, you probably don't even need them.  This kit was pretty simple...so Molly and I just dug in. I gave her two, and took two for myself.


And in just a few minutes, we had our cards all ready to send!  As you can see, we didn't even follow the sample, just did our own thing.  We also liked the splatter stamp for other projects, but felt it was a little too heavy for this super simple card.  So after trying it once...we just left it off. 

Here's our cards...two by me and two by Molly... head on over to www.mypaperpumpkin.com and join in the fun!
