I'll send S.O.S. to the World!

Thanks to Lisa Vollrath, I now have the song 'Message in a Bottle' stuck in my head!

It's all good though because I got Lisa's newsletter in my inbox this afternoon and she has a really awesome swap project going on right now ~ 'Message in a Bottle'.

If you're an artsy type of person, you definitely need to check it out! In a nutshell, each participant will receive a bottle in the mail. Inside the bottle will be labels addressed to 2 other people, along with some cool art supplies (i.e. ephemera, charms, or whatever the sender decides to send you.) You, in turn, stuff 2 bottles with goodies, label the bottles with the 2 labels that were in the bottle you received and ship them out.

If you would like to join, or are curious about it please go here:

I am so excited to be able to play in this one & I'll be sure to post a picture of my bottle when it arrives!

Sheet what???

SheetLoad ShortCuts...... I just wanted to share an awesome little product I bought & recieved a couple of days ago. Before I do, I should say I have no affiliation with this gal (other than being a new customer) and don't know any of her or any of the gals that made samples for her but I am so impressed with her product & awesome customer service, I had to share...Gift Card Holder Folders! And they come in 3 sizes!!!

Here's the story ~ A woman named Alicia saw that alot of paper crafters were making gift card holders. While fairly easy to do, she got tired of the repetitive cutting, scoring & folding so she decided to see how much it would cost to have a custom die made....she ended up finding a company in Kansas that made it for her and, in order to off-set the cost of having the die made, decided to share the end result with other paper crafters... I don't want to infringe on any copy right laws or anything so I'll stop here but you really out to check this out...
