Magnolia Credit!

hey everyone if you sign up at http://www.magnoliastamps.us/ they are giving you $5.00 in store credit. (its only good for 24hrs i'm guessing from when you sign up). but it helps when purchasing a stamp. I bought a $2.00 sea shells stamp and only paid .95 cents for it. they also have pearls and stuff check it out.

RAK Request Dustin Pike needs our help!

hey everyone one of my favorite digi image designers needs our help. He knows this sick little 9yr old  boy named Dylan who has an inopperable brain tumor. Dustin pike called for help. here is what he posted:
Freebie and a Call for Cards...


Every once in a while I ask for something in return for all of the freebies I give away. That time has come again...This past Monday night at a local school they held an event called "Dancing for Dylan" The turnout was tremendous...He is a 9 yr old boy recently diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor (Diffused Pontine Glioma) His blog is here http://dylandshaw.blogspot.com/ and you can read all about the things that this little boy and his family are going thru. In return for you taking an hour out of your day and a buck to mail the card I have 6 images to give away to each person that sends a card to me that I can collect and take to his family. I would like to do this in about 2 weeks to give those overseas the time to get the cards here. PLEASE feel free to make the card for Dylan, his family or both. If you have wonderful words of encouragement you can add that to the card...or just a simple hello will work.

This as well as the 5 others will not be for sale on my site (consider them Limited Editions). Only by making a card can you get this small set...I am not telling you that one of my images has to be used (though it would be nice) and seeings it's a boy this time around, I for some reason tend to have a lot of images geared towards boys...



Send the card to me:

Dustin Pike
P.O. Box 901
Roy, Utah 84067



PLEASE be sure to throw a note in there with your email address so I can send the set once your card is received. Though my kids think so I am not a mind reader...

So if you would like to help please do... http://dustinpike.blogspot.com/2011/05/freebie-and-call-for-cards.html
thanks everyone!

FINALLY! Osama Bin Ladin DEAD!

I know this has nothing to do with crafts but How could I not post something about this.
This horrible person is Finally dead. I never been elated. I was fresh out of high school when 9/11 happened. Many of my friends enlisted in the military fresh out of high school too. ( i decided not to join because my High School anatomy teacher Dr. Lew Davis said that he had a bad feeling about the current Bush administration) I was worried about my friends and family and the other troops i did not know personally. and finally justice (if you can call it that) has been served. although it wont bring back our lost loved ones they should know that it wasnt in vain.
I am PROUD to be an American! as the President said," We are ONE NATION, UNDER GOD, INDIVISABLE FOR LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL".

Japan's disasters

My heart is out to my Japanese brothers and sisters who are effected by the Large earth quake, tsunami, and meltdown.
i was kinda effected by this as my area was on tsunami warning. My hometown of San Francisco luckily only had 6in waves come in. I didnt sleep while on warning... pretty scary. Now I have herd that possible nuclear fall out might hit the area where i live... I'm not sure what to do about that but i'm looking to possibly move east if that does occur.
anywho...
If anyone hears on what we as a group can do to help our fellow man in Japan. please let me know thanks and God Bless Everyone!
