Good news!

Sorry it's been so long since my last post. Things are really hectic around here. Kaylee and I made gifts for a bunch of people at her school and at Zachary's school this week. I think we made little gifts for about 40 people. It is fun and rewarding. It makes me so happy to see the joy of giving in my little girl!! I'm also working on projects for a new book with the publishing company - so I'm definitely staying busy. hehe!

Now - the good news!!! I'm happy to say that Digital Candy will be staying OPEN!!! yay! Kate and Rick will be the new owners and they have been fabulous! So - that means my designs will still be available there.

I have also been accepted onto a new site that I'm very excited about - but I have to keep it a secret right now - be sure to check back to find out more as I'm allowed to tell - hehe!!

I'm also still selling at Faith Sisters and for a site called Memory Mixer. They have their own scrapbooking software that the kits on their site are set up for and it's a really cool program for people who want to scrapbook the fast and easy way!!! I'll also be telling more about that after the first of the year.

I just put my new Christmas kit, Christmas Candy in the stores and my stores are on sale for 30% off from now until December 24th. I'll post the new preview on the right for you to see. I think it will be a fun kit for Christmas photos - especially of kids.

On the personal side, we just celebrated Christmas with my hubby's family and we had a wonderful visit. It was a lot of fun and I ate waaaay to much peanut butter fudge - hehe!! We will be going to see my family after Christmas.

Also - I will be participating in a blog train for the new site where I'll be selling and there will be a freebie on my blog with links to others on the 30th. Be sure to come back and check it out!

Oh - and Nancy in CA - I had not realized that my e-mail addy was not on here - sorry about that and I'd be happy for you to e-mail me. :) My e-mail addy is: paperflowers_paula@yahoo.com .

Thanks so much for reading!!!

Blog Train Success

Thank you to everyone for helping make the Digital Candy Blog Train a success. I know that I had over 300 of you download the Quick Page -and I'm sooo thrilled. I hope everyone enjoys using it!

For those of you who may not know, Heidi, the owner of Digital Candy, made an announcement early this week that she will be closing Digital Candy after the end of this year. I am sooo sad about it. This site was so fun and I will miss it dearly. I will still have my goodies for sale at Faith Sisters, and am hoping to have my own site up and running by the first of the year. I'm working on getting another store where I can sell my designs, but I want it to be a good site that hopefully will not be going anywhere. I'll keep you updated on my search - hehe :).

I will be having sales at both Digital Candy and Faith Sisters very soon - so be on the lookout for those.

Other than that, not much going on around here. We had a great Thanksgiving. Amanda invited us over to her house since we weren't going to be able to go see my family this year. She and Paul are amazing cooks and it was all sooo delicious!! We watched the Cowboys play and the kids all played Wii. Then, as is the tradition in Robby's family, we celebrated on the Sunday after Thanksgiving with them. Again, we ate way too much, and watched football while the kids played. All in all, I think it was a very nice holiday.

I'm going to get to go see my family at Christmas and I'm looking very forward to that! The kids are going to have a great Christmas this year (MeMe and Papaw - my parents) have really gone and got them something they are gonna love!! I don't want Kaylee to accidentally see it here - so I'll have to tell you all after Christmas - hehe - suspense for you too!!! ;)

That's all the news I have for you now. I hope you have a great Christmas season!!
