It's starting RIGHT NOW!!! Designer Contest - that is!

Holy cow!! I just stopped by the ScrapMatters forum to see if the new info is up for the Design Star contest - and guess what??? Here's the colors for the first mini:

Isn't it pretty!! I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with! If you've not heard about it, you can check it out here. If you've ever wanted to give designing a try - this is a great chance to do it!

BTW - thank you so much to everyone who commented with tips for file sharing sites & virus software - I'm still checking it all out before I decide for sure - but I really appreciate the tips!

Use Caution

There is a lot of talk in digi land right now about viruses & 4shared. It seems that people are getting viruses from the ads at 4shared before even getting to the download. I strongly recommend avoiding 4shared right now and making sure that your virus software is up to date.

It makes me so sad that people can be so cruel to do things like this - I can't really even understand what joy they would get out of it.

So - if you are coming to my blog for one of my freebies and you see that it is hosted at 4share - please email me (link is above under my header) and I'll host it on another site for you. I going to try to remove my 4shared links. For now - I will try hosting on until I find a better solution. I have heard good things about Box & there are no ads. The downside is that the file sizes are smaller.

Ok - that's it for this PSA!

Designer Competition - Have you seen this???

Holy cow!!! Have you seen this??? ScrapMatters is going to be having it's very own designer contest! The format is going to be so cool - lots of opportunities to learn & grow as a designer - and the chance to set up shop at SM!

Brittney has posted all of the details here - if you've ever wanted to give designing a try - this is your chance!

I can tell you that SM is such an awesome place to work as a designer - we have THE nicest designers - everyone is genuinely nice - and we are all willing to help each other whenever needed. The site participation and commissions are more than reasonable and it is such a fun place to work. Did I mention that our CT ROCKS?????
OK - back to that spring cleaning for me, lol - I just HAD to tell you about this!

Spring Cleaning

It seems I've gotten the itch to begin some spring cleaning! It has started out here on my blog which is in the middle of a MUCH needed facelift (pardon the dust...) and is now looking at some neglected areas of my home - I'm thinking our bathroom would look great with some new paint and accesories & my DD2's room needs some "big girl" additions and new storage - just wait till DH finds out, LOL!!

Also wanted to let you know about a Speed Scrap at SM tonight.... Jeni Hopewell made a fab participation prize!!

Since it's wednesday, DH and I will be settling in on the couch to watch Lost! It's our date night "in". LOVE THAT!

I also had a chance to work with Leslie (GG Designs) as part of SM's Twice as Nice Collabs it was SO much fun! I love the kit so much that I decided to use it to decorate my blog!!!

Check it out:

Fairy Princess by The Golden Girls & Happy Scrap Girl Designs
