Melissa Frances - Don't Miss This Product

Good morning -

I am so excited this morning I could just........ well, you get the idea.

Back in August of last year, I placed an order with one of my favorite scrapbook companies, Melissa Frances. You should take a minute sometime and visit the blog at Lots of good inspiration there.

Anyway, I got my shipment, listed the Bingo Books on etsy and they were sold out in under 24 hours. Truly amazing. So I placed another order and they are finally here. Just amazing product came in two boxes yesterday.

I love Melissa Frances product, very shabby chic and always excellent quality. I am listing many fine things from Melissa Frances on the etsy site at today. Especially cute is the new Postcard Album - heavy chipboard pages printed like the front and back of a postcard. Very very cute. Also very cute are the chandelier dangles (moon shaped are shown). They are excellent quality plastic (because of the weight) and are about the size of a quarter and, best yet, are $1.50 for 4. Can't beat that with a stick......

Don't miss out on this fabulous product. You never know how long it may take to get them in again.

I leave you with pictures of the pages of the postcard album and my wishes for a great weekend for everyone.

All Free Graphics All The Time

You all know that I love free stuff. I just think that it's like a gift I wasn't expecting. There are free ideas, free templates, free samples, free thinking, and in the 70s there was free love......

One of my favorite places to celebrate free is a website called the Vintage Moth. Abbie has this incredible site where she posts - you guessed it - free graphics. I have loved this site for a long time and yesterday I made my love official by becoming a site sponsor. When you visit the vintage moth at you will see a sponsor button that will take their visitors to my etsy site. How excellent is that?

To celebrate this event, I am giving away something. Comment here about your favorite free thing between now and Friday and I will draw a name. Winner gets a bottle of Tim Holtz Distress Stickles, one of the new colors of Distress Ink and a Tim stamp. How excellent is that.

You must be a blog follower to win. Stop over and see my friend Abbie at the Vintage Moth and enjoy her generosity. Have a great week.
