Take $2 Tuesday and FREEBIES

My internet connection has been slow and wonky all evening so I’m trying to get this posted before it goes down again.  Today is Take $2 Tuesday and that means you have a chance to save big on two of Connie’s wonderful kits!  On sale today only, Project 2013: December and Fabulocity!

These kits are also available at Scrapbook Bytes and may also be at Ginger Scraps.  If I can find the links I’ll come back and update today’s post for those of you who only shop at those stores.  Right now I can’t get hardly anything to load so I’m going with what I have already.  Love technology when it is playing nice but when it’s not…. sigh.  I think after this some cuddling with my new kitties is in order.


Make sure you check out all the retiring products before the end of the month!  There are some stash builders in there that you don’t want to miss!

I promised you two freebies today since I missed getting you one on Saturday and I’m holding true to my word.  I created two different quick pages for you today.  The first one was made with one of the Take $2 Tuesday kits, Fabulocity.  The second quick page was made with Santa’s Helper.  I hope you enjoy both of these and I’ll see you back here on Thursday!

Sunday Funday! First Happy Thanksgiving Wishes!

Hey everyone.  Sorry to be late today.  We had an ice storm yesterday and lost internet for awhile.  Couldn't even get out to take Sammy for his follow up on his surgery.  But you know what?  I'll take a little ice and no internet over what those poor folks in Buffalo are having.  With temperatures rising, I know Buffalo is expecting some flooding.  Looks like old man Winter has arrived this year.  And yes, I have my snow tires on already!!  So it must be true!

You'll probably recognize this from your solved jigsaw last week.  It is indeed the French Pavilion located in the World Showcase in Epcot.  I will be sending out your coupons shortly.   Congratulations to the winner of the $10 coupon, Jeanne Bancroft! 


Thanks to all of you who commented and shared your weather situation last week.  I love hearing from you all!  Sunday is for fun around here, and I am always happy to hear what's going on in your world.

Mother Nature is really odd.  Yesterday, we still had lots of snow and freezing rain.  Everything was glazed over!  Just opened the front drapes.  Hardly any snow is left!  I feel very sorry for those people in New York that really were hit hard with this Lake Effect snow.   I still remember the year we were the unlucky recipient of all that snow.  Lost our garage that year. The kids had very extended vacations because the National Guard moved into the schools to help with snow removal. There literally was no place to push the snow anymore. So the National Guard loaded it up and took out into the farm fields.  What a winter. What's the worst weather related incident you can remember?  Be sure to share that with me in comments this week!!

Sticking with another Jigsaw Puzzle this week.  Solve the puzzle and email me what the photo is about.  That simple.  You have until Friday, November 28th at 9 PM Eastern to get me your answers.  Send them to coyotelady(at)gmail(dot)come. Reminder that you can solve he JigSaw right here on Connie's blog, but it does require Flash. So use your computer and not a mobile device!

Online jigsaw puzzles from JigsawSite.com


That's it for this week. Except one thing.  I would love to be the first to wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving.  I am very thankful to be part of this wonderful community.  I have made so many friends here.  Thank you all for spending your Sunday's with me!!

So Sorry!!!

I’m really really late with today’s post because I’ve been focused our our new furbabies today.  My family adopted two 3 1/2 year old cats late yesterday and they are slowly adapting to being part of our busy family.  We have never adopted from a shelter before and it was a very emotional experience. I’ll share more of our story on another post but since I’m so late with this one I want to get you to Connie’s news.

First up is yesterday’s new release of the last installment of Project 2014.  Project 2014: December {Joyful Life} is a mega pack that you won’t want to pass up!

Connie’s clearing out some of her older products to make room for more new products that are on their way.  It’s sad to say good-bye to some of our favorites but at the same time it’s really exciting to know that more goodies are on their way!  If you are missing any of these in your scrapping stash you need to pick them up before they are gone!
