Happy Monday!

Well it looks like everyone enjoyed the party celebrations this weekend and were able to get involved in the challenges and games going on at Paperthreads! Hopefully you were able to take advantage of my sale as well!

Now it's the time to pick up and start cleaning up and tie up some loose ends LOL!

To begin with, I am so glad that all of you had the chance to download my Halloween Border and really enjoyed reading all of the comments! Please send me a pic of your finished pieces so I can share with everyone here in the future.

Also, I do apologize for the delay but it took awhile to enter all of the names into the randomizer to see who was the big "weiner" for the blog candy I offered but here you go....

....drumroll please.......

So after 80 names (wow!) were entered into the randomizer, I'm sending a big Congratulations to ScrappinMaMa (Yea!!!!! Cheers!!!!!!!!Applause!!!!!!!!!)

SMM, just send me an email ( with your name and address and I will get a package out to you containing all of the cool stuff in the picture!

I'm working on a couple of new files (as well as a freebie) and hope to have them up this week so be sure to check back. onto what my daughter calls my midlife crisis....if you have been following me, I told you that I did pass my class "M" license and with that began the shopping for a bike to ride. I had found a new one (beautiful red Honda 750) and the price was really good (since it was a '09 model and they wanted to sell it to make room for the winter ATVs) but after DH and I did a lot of talking, we decided that a used one would make more sense....since I would freak out the first time I got a scratch on a new bike!

In any case, did a lot of looking in the newspapers, craigslist, etc and found a GREAT bike on ebay locally. It's a 2004 Honda Shadow Spirit (1100cc) and it came fully loaded (windscreen, saddlebags, custom seats, etc) for A LOT less than the new bike would have been and it only has 4,000 miles on it. Woo there is only one little thing....the bike was customized by the previous owner....I'm not going to say anything else except to let the picture speak for least it's ready for the end of the month bahahahah!
Take care everyone!

Today's the Day!!!!

Welcome everyone to Paperthreads Birthday Celebration! !!!

Are you here for the Blog Hop? If you are just starting out, and you landed here first, then you are in the right place, because this is the first stop in the Hop of fun and savings!

Don't tell anyone, but my secret word to give you is "Paperthreads", and when you leave here, you should go to the next stop, which is at Butterfly Designs, aka Jenette Carson!

You will find the link at the bottom of the page along with the links for all of the other great designers taking part in the festivities.

Also, while I don't think I mentioned it, All of my files are 50% OFF throught the weekend!!! Some of my files are as low as only $ 1 a piece! Don't forget, if you use the .SVG format user and you don't see it listed in the store, simply send me a copy of the receipt and I will email the file to you directly. That way you don't have to wait for the store to be updated.

If you take a look at the pic above, it is of the free file I am sharing with you for today only which is just in time for your cute Halloween pics - past and present. Don't let the image fool you, the borders are about 1.5" x 12" so they will work great on your 12 x 12 layouts! I also included a single skull and cauldron in case you want to add a few around your page!

Also, if you download the file (and even if you don't), if you take a moment and leave me a comment, then tomorrow I will enter all of the names of everyone who left a comment into the Randomizer and I will draw the name of 1 lucky person who will win some Blog Candy!

Well I hope this gets you excited and ready for your blog hopping! Don't forget to write down the secret word up above and go to the next blog to continue finding great goodies as well as words!

Paperthreads is having it's 3rd Anniversary tomorrow October 3rd and it is going to be a fun day!!!

Make sure you come back here tomorrow early to join into the fun. We are going to have a blog hop where you will start on one of the designers pages who will link you to another and so on and so on until you are left dizzy but with a bunch of cool FREE files! On top of that some people will be hosting challenges and others will be offering Blog Candy! I'm also have a HUGE sale!

Please make sure you leave comments for me and everyone you download a file really brings a smile to all of our faces just knowing you enjoy the freebies.

For those of you who have been thinking about joining the vacation club membership, it is coming to an end. I'm not 100% sure but I think your last day to purchase is tomorrow and you will only have a day or so to download the OVER 60 FILES....and all of those for ONLY $ 15!!! Even better, the proceeds from your purchase goes 100% to the Schwartz family! Just go to the link at the top left corner of the screen. I know the family has appreciated everyone's generosity and you get a lot of wonderful files at a deep discount!

Now...let's see....remember I told you in an earlier blog that I was taking a class but wasn't going to share with you unless I passed....well....I passed! It is official...I can now ride a motorcycle LOL!!! I have my certificate and today I'm going to the MVA to get the official Class "M" license! Do I have a bike? Nope, but I have a skill, and for me that is really what matters...who knows, maybe one day I will come out of a building and all of sudden asteroids will be falling from the sky and I need to get out of the area quickly and being that my car has been blocked in I see a motorcycle just idling (and the owner of course says take it) and I jump on....before I would not know what to do,but Now....I can jump on and go bahahahahahahahahahah!!!!

Anyway, I hope everyone has a wonderful day today! Don't forget to come back tomorrow for all of the fun!
