3 Dog Designs now Exclusive to Denim and Daisies

After much soul searching, I have decided to cut down on my outside commitments, and my products will now only be available in one store. I realized that being in two stores, was stretching me too thin, and my personal life and my design quality was starting to suffer. I felt torn between both stores, and I didn't think that was fair to either of them or to me. So I resigned effective immediately at My Life and Scrap. They are a great bunch of people over there and I will miss them all very much.
Make sure you head on over to Denim and Daisies, all my products are 50% off!!! :-)

This week

As you know last weekend was the Grand Opening for Denim and Daisies!! We had a great time during the grand opening, and the fun continues this week. There are lots of fun challenges going on, you should stop by and check them out.

I participated in a couple of the "challenges" that have been going on this week. The first one I did was a lyric's challenge. We had to come up with a song that meant something to us, and then scrap a page around that song. I chose the song In My Daughter's Eyes by Martina McBride. Everytime I hear that song I tear up thinking about what a wonderful gift my daughter Evelyn has been to me. I lost my first child (a little girl named Michaela) in 1998 due to complications with my diabetes. It took me almost 8 years to get up the guts to try again, but with lots of dedication and hard work, my husband and I were blessed with our daughter Evelyn. She is beautiful and perfect in every way (of course I think that since I am her mom right?) LOL Anyway, this song has always touched me..

The second challenge I participated in, was a Raw Denim challenge, that was using a template.. I made a page of my dog Britianie, who I miss very much!! She was and always will be the BEST dog in the world!! :-)

So make sure you head over to Denim and Daisies ( and check out the games and challenges! I am sure everyone will find something that will make them want to Sit! Stay! Scrap!!

No new kits this week...

Hey scrappers! No new kits or even kit news this week. This one is more of a personal post. I was admitted to the hospital with pneumonia on Sunday. Thing is, I was FINE on Friday. Went to sleep Friday night, woke up a few hours later, my shoulder and right side hurt so bad, I couldn't lay back down and fell asleep in a sitting position. Spent most of the next day sleeping in the recliner in our living room until about 10 PM, when I coughed and the pain brought me to my knees. I had NO idea I had pneumonia, or that I was even really sick. (I thought I had pulled something) So if something happens to you and your symptoms don't make sense seek medical treatment! I went to the ER, and they ran a bunch of tests for a lot of scary things until they came back to pneumonia. So here I sit two days later, feeling soooo much better, but I still have a long way to go.. (I am still *thinking* about making new kits though!! tee hee hee)

What's happening...

Hey Scrappers!

I had my grand opening at My Life and Scrap last week. It went really well, and I am so glad I am a part of such an amazing site.

I am on vacation from my "day" job this week, and I am working on some new kits for both My Life and Scrap, and also my second store which will open the weekend of Halloween. It is called Denim and Daisies ( I really believe this is going to be an AMAZING site! They have combined both digital and traditional supplies. If you are into hybrid projects you are going to LOVE this new store! Our Grand Opening is going to be October 31st! We will be doing a Grand Opening Blog Train, so stay tuned for that! I have seen some of the previews and they are amazing!!!

The new kits I am working on are for fall and Halloween. I am also starting to work on some ideas for some great winter time kits, so make sure you check back, cause you never know when I might have a freebie or two out here!! :-)

A little bit off topic...

So I thought I would share with you all a little bit about why I decided to call my design business "Three Dog Designs"

As I am sure you have guessed, I do in fact have three dogs. I have Bailey (my 5 year old Border Collie Mix) Izzy (3 year old Golden Retriever) and Colby (6 month old Golden Retriever). However the name isn't inspired by them.. But by my dog Britianie. (she is the dog with me in my profile pic) I got her in 1997. My first dog that I truly fell in love with. She was a Golden Retriever to the core, friendly, loveable, goofy, protective. I never knew how lucky I was to have her in my life, until a few years later. To understand this story, you also have to know that I am an insulin dependant diabetic. I have had diabetes since I was 12. One night while I was sleeping I experienced my first ever low blood sugar seizure. Britianie was able to wake up other people in the house, so that they could call 911. The doctors told us if she hadn't done that, I would not have survived. Then a  few years later my mom was dog sitting for me. Britianie woke her up in the middle of the night (she was also an insulin dependant diabetic) My mom thought she had to go outside, so she took her to the door but my dog refused to go outside. While she was up she thought she might as well check her blood sugar. She discovered it was dangerously low. Britianie inspired many of my friends and family to get their own Goldens. They are all amazing dogs. Unfortunatley I lost both my mom and my beautiful girl Britters earlier this year. But I like to think that they are still watching out for each other though!

New Store Opening Soon!!!

I am excited to announce that yes I will be opening my very own store very soon!!! I am not sure if the site has made the announcement yet, so I need to check with them before saying where it is, but I will let you all know soon!!!

Thursday, August 13, 2009

I think it is happening!!!

I just had to post again, and say that I believe I will be opening my first store very soon!! Iwas contacted by one of the sites I applied to and they are interested!!! (YAY me!!) I will give the details as soon as everything has been finalized.

Welcome to the 3 Dog Designs Blog!

Welcome to my first blog post! I have just recently gotten more into digi scrap designing, and I wanted to share what I have made and also my learning process with everyone!! So hopefully you can find something you like. I am in the process right now of creating my first kits, and also applying to some designer calls. Hopefully I hear back from some of the ones I have applied to. I am super excited to be finally on my way, to becoming a digi scrap designer. I have been an avid digi scrapper for the past three years, since the birth of my daughter... As I am sure many of you know having a baby/toddler/child running around makes it very hard to have all the little pieces you need to have out to do "traditional" paper scrapping!! I am finding the more I digi scrap, the more I LOVE it! I can always make something look the way I want (and if I can't, I can just start over unlike more traditional methods)....

Anyway, enough about me, let's get on to the goods!! I have included some previews of my kits, and I am also working on making some "freebies"! Hopefully I will get picked up by a store soon, you all can download my full kits!!
Here are previews to my first three kits. Let me know what you think!

Again, I hope you enjoy coming on this journey with me and remember to always, Scrap What Matters!!
