Talk About Curing Autism - February's Charity Donation

From now through Sunday, I am donating all proceeds from my store sales to Talk About Curing Autism. This cause is important to me because I have a three year old son who was diagnosed with autism last year. He is in the process of recovery but without TACA I don't know if I would have been able to give him the biomedical treatments he needs. This organization has been so helpful for us in navigating this diagnosis.

LOTW 2-25-10

The winner of this weeks LOTW is crinkletoast. I found this LO in the gallery over at Gingerscraps. Click on her LO and stop by and leave her love on this gorgeous piece of art. She used a valentine mini kit called "V" by Misty O'Brien Designs. She did an awesome job. Here it is.

So there you have it. Remember if you do any LO's using Misty's designs, post them in the galleries out in the scrap world and your LO just might be chosen for LOTW.

Also if you are not a fan of Misty O'Brien Designs on Facebook, become one now so you don't miss out on all the news and some freebies.

It's Wednesday and that means new releases from me!

First up, I have a brand new set of glitter sheets. In this grab bag you get ten 12x12 gradient glitter sheets (no .asl style file, just the sheets). They are allowable for CU, but please see CU TOU listed in the store description. You can own this set for only $3!

I also have a grab bag add on for Everyday Happenings. There are a total of 17 elements and 1 paper designed to coordinate with the main kit. And it's only $2!
