Love those candles! Click here to pop on over to Emma's blog and see more of her art. Thanks so much Emma and keep sending in those pieces of art ladies!

Phew....I am still exhausted after our amazing garage sale!!!

Wow. What an event!! Well over 200 people came through the doors & boy did they nab some outrageous deals!! We ended up opening the doors a few minutes early when we went to go take pics of the ladies in the line up and we saw their cold anxious faces waiting to get in. Who can resist those puppy dog eyes! Look at the pic below and see what I mean..Sheila's looking back at me saying 'oh..I can't do it.quit taking pictures and let them in its too cold!"...

This was our 3rd semi-annual sale and it was our biggest yet. Our top earner made almost $900!! Two ladies made over $600!! Another two earned over $450!! Another did over $350 and TONS of women earned between $100 - $200!! (I personally made just under $200 woot woot- Andrea). I know some of the ladies were like me and were anxiously planning how to spend our gift card money made from my earnings. Let me just say the new Basic Grey paper packs and embellishments barely had time to rest on the shelf before I was loading my it.

For any vendors who haven't picked up their boxes and gift cards yet feel free to head in and start shopping.

Congratulations to the sellers and the buyers who scooped up amazing deals. Thank you to every single one of you- it was a very fun and memorable day!

Tanya's creation using Feb's SGD scrapbook kit

Tanya R sent us in this stinkin' cute card made with pieces from the Feb SGD scrapbook kit. I absolutely love the stitching all over this card. Almost makes me brave enough to try it on my cards again (first time was a wee bit of a disaster :) tee hee. She even used the felt butterflies to trace onto matching design paper and cut out.The stick pins add a great touch! You can get more details on what Tanya used to make this card by clicking here to go to her blog. Thanks so much for sending this in to us Tanya.

I can not tell you how much we are loving the customer creations we have gotten so far to post on our blog. Please keep them coming in as this is the biggest reason we wanted to have a blog- to share your crafty treasures. Email me at if you have a creation you would let us share as well.

SGD- Customer submission- The Greeting Farm

These lovely cards showed up in my inbox from SGD customer Yvonne W. I love the greeting farm images and she did an amazing job with them. And some of my fave Basic Grey paper too- love it!!!! Check out the kitty's tush- that heart is awesome. The colouring is awesome too. Thanks for sending these in Yvonne- keep 'em coming! If anyone else wants to submit something they made with some SGD products just email me at and I am happy to post it.

I am so happy to see we are now already at over 50 followers- woot woot! We will keep the blog candy going for a few more days then do the draw.

It's a beautiful sunny day here in SW Ontario- let's hope more of this snow and ice melt. I am heading to my craft room shortly to start thinking of what to put in the March Kimmie and Andrea card kits. I hope you get to spend some crafty time today too. If not actually crafting then at least the second best thing- blog hopping and/or craft shopping lol!

More Creations with the March scrapbook kit and wanna see the blog candy- $80 value

Here are some more beautiful creations made for us using Sheila's March Scrapbooking kit now available for purchase. Hurry though cause once they are gone.....that's it folks! The top one is by Sarah and it cracks me up! I love how she used thickers and put 'mine' under her hubby's pic. It reminds me of those birds in Finding Nemo who just keep chanting 'mine, mine, mine'. As well, our March guest designer Liz made this crazy cool page- look at the detail folks! I would click on it to help see it bigger- well done Liz!
Couple things to mention- still tickets remaining for this Sat's event- come on out and have some fun! Additionally- our 24 hour sale is on right now- click here to see the savings. She even has a Greeting farm set at 40% off! Even though the sale actually goes till Friday at midnight Sheila just loves that name so she isn't changing it. I guess the Wed-Fri sale doesn't have quite the same ring to it lol.
So, want to see what our blog candy looks like? How do you win it? Just become a follower- that's it!!!!! Andrea (me) likes to keep things simple and wants to reward those who follow our new blog. Please feel free to share this on your blogs or forward to your friends. It's open to anyone in the world!
Well that's it for today but I would LOVE to be able to show some of our customer creations. Send them in to me and we will show them here. Email pics to and we can all enjoy our crafty inspirations.
Andrea :)
