Hi Ladies!

I hope that everyone had a great weekend - and got some shopping in too! Weren't those some great sales? You just gotta love a sale! There has to be something good going on with this awful economy. It's getting truly desperate for so many people and my heart goes out to those that are suffering right now. The reality is, so many people are just one paycheck away from being homeless. Having had this happen to me, I know how terrible it is to lose your home and everything ... and praying that you can find your way out of the darkness.

I had an interesting weekend myself. Friday night Mike and I went to "Longhorn Steak House" for dinner with another couple. We had never been - and OMG! It was fabulous! The food was awesome and the service was perfect. We had a wonderful night with our friends and we'll definitely be going back some day. If you have one nearby - I highly recommend trying them out!

Saturday I went to a friend's baby shower. It was very nice, but I started feeling sick while there. I spent yesterday pretty much laying down; feeling achy, cold, and nausaus. Mike and I had both gotten a stomach virus, so I'm hoping this was just a continuation of that and not the beginning of a flu!

I've decided to take a break until the end of the month. It's dawned on me that I haven't taken any real time off for about 18 months now. I'd really like to finish unpacking and getting my house finished ... especially for the holidays. Of course, I'll still be checking my emails - so please feel free to contact me. I just won't be designing anything new for a bit. I'm not sure how much of a "vacation" this is going to be - but, at least my house should be in order! LOL

My New CU Grab Bag (#23) is in the stores!

Save 82% off of regular prices. Included are six brand-new, never released designer resources for the incredibly low price of only $5.00 for this $28 value! Available thru 10/27. As always, NO CREDIT is required and this item is CU/S4H-O/PU Friendly.

Need a sneak peek? I'm pretty sure you'll like them ... here ya go!

Isn't that a great deal? Again, this CU grab bag is available in all 3 of my stores:

DigiScrap Warehouse
Divine Digital
Commercial Use

I've got some other new goodies in the store - the following are perfect for those Christmas kits & Layouts:

Here are some more pattern overlays:

For Halloween:

And some Misc. patterns:

These are in all of my stores - just waiting for you! *smiles*


Well, you finally got here, huh? lol This week I've got another cu sampler pack. As an aside, so many people have written me and asked if they could buy samplers that they have missed, I'll be putting all the samplers in the stores in the next couple of weeks. Okay, here's CU Sampler Pack #10:

Looks pretty good, right? I've included 3 funky overlays, 1 brad, 1 tag, 1 push pin, and 1 ribbon. This sampler will be available thru 10/22/08 at midnight, EST. I hope you enjoy it and I'm really looking forward to reading your comments.

Take care!

OMG Babette, all those new overlays are just fantastic. You have definitely been working too hard and need a break! Thank you so much for this newest sampler. Everything in it looks awesome. Sorry you have been a little under the weather. Still waiting to hear what you got Superman for his birthday and how the dinner party went.

Babette darlin', I am SO happy that you and Mike had SUCH a LOVELY evening out with your friends. DEFINITELY a GOOD thing every now and then, eh? I am also glad to hear that you are taking some time away to tend to the OTHER important matters in our lives!!! ENJOY! How you do SO much TRULY amazes me!!! AWESOME layouts girl!

While no one wishes to admit it, I suppose we are in the category of being ONE paycheck away from homeless as if we missed one, we would be in a bit of trouble me thinks! :) Seems to be the concensus anymore, which only deepens my thoughts of just HOW much change we need to take place so that we can ALL have the ability to reach an attainable goal, such as owning a home!

I SO appreciate ALL that YOU do for ALL of us here in SCRAPLAND sweetheart! I especially thank you for the CU SAMPLER #10 as I have searched my files looking for a starburst BG that I JUST knew I HAD!!! YAY!!!

I enjoyed spending a few dollars at DSW and have noticed MORE dollar sales coming about! Gotta LOVE our MOST compassionate and UNDERSTANDING community called SCRAPLAND!!!

I am so glad I snapped the Grab Bag up as soon asI saw it this morning at DD :o)

Now to knuckle down and start making things and hopefully selling them so I can buy some of those fa overlays.
