Well it's been an interesting few days! My hubby has found his first job here in Canada, pursuing what is his passion right now, the restaurant business. He's a prep cook at a restaurant at a mall here that we visit all the time. It's been quite the change.

You see for the past 2.5 years I've been spoiled rotten. My husband has been the homemaker, cook, laundry person and kitchen hand. And now he's working. So both of us are waking at 6 a.m. and while he has his shower, I make his breakfast and lunch, and then get ready myself so that I can get a ride to work to arrive one hour and fifteen minutes earlier. It's rough. So we've finally become the 'normal' double income couple fighting bills, and trying to find time to spend together.

The hardest time was this past weekend. He worked both days, and we've never spent a weekend apart since our marriage in 2005. Saturday, I was a cleaning fiend to deal with it. Sunday, I was extremely sad. But I spent the day trying to scrap and design some new items.

I've been working on some new products, some of which are already in store now. You'll find the sequel to Organic Elegance, and soon, Harvest Moon Jeans.

And I've launched a new challenge at - all about Everyday Living! There's a posting bonus for each person who posts.

Just visit the forum at for more details about the bi-weekly challenge, here.

Can't wait to see what you come up with!

Well the celebration's almost over. Congratulations to the 20 individuals who won my new kit, Graphical Botanicals - The Sequel. I hope you love it. I'm giving away one more copy of it though, because I'm one of many sponsoring an event at Dragonflaire Studios to support my friend Maggie Lamarre!

I hope you'll come and enjoy all the fun. There is no better site for hybrid projects! Challenge yourself to making your first hybrid project after the Spa Retreat!

I absolutely loved working on this kit. It was inspired by the changing leaves and fire red sunsets we are getting here now. And look what my wonderful creative team did with it! It's available exclusively from, here.

This gorgeous kit brings the vibrant feel of a raging fire and a stormy sunset into your layouts. Vivid red, orange and yellow papers with delicate textures and detailing provide the perfect backgrounds. The elements include frames, ribbons and swirls that bring out the flames and intense colors of the wild storm. The worn metal elements help to bring warmth to your pictures and layouts, and the journal papers and paper swirls add a touch of whimsy. Kit includes 10 richly textured patterned papers, 4 solid papers and 16 elements. This kit is perfect for a rugged masculine layout, or for rich autumn layouts. If you need to brighten and warm up your layout, this is the kit for you!
