ok, this is a lot to cover, so here we go!
ONE. The following three posts have won themselves a hefty package of ALL NEW American Crafts products.
I love, with a capital HEART, the lunchboxes at SuperNoots! I can see my Elle & Diesel carrying one around with snacks and toys!
I want to share with you my favorite things in the world . . . my twins! (link to blog here) They are amazing, and wouldn't the American Crafts goodies create amazing pages of amazing babies? I think so!

Love the SuperNoots. Will be getting one of those. Also love the juxtaposition of your picks – nutrition awareness and cookies! (tee hee)

Email me girls and put "AC WINNER" in the subject line!
TWO. It's week five of our Simple Scrapbooks gallery challenge (see my note in the July/August issue.) This week's challenge is: Pair favorite song lyrics with a picture or two.
As you may know, I'm a big fan of Jack Johnson and one of my favorites from the Curious George soundtrack is With My Own Two Hands. If you've not heard it, have a listen.
I'm no stellar photographer, but I love taking pictures of hands and the message of this song is perfect for a collection of hand shots. The black and white image is my grandmother Addie meeting my Addie for the first time (I love to think how she embraced this little girl from another country – not necessarily an easy thing to do for someone from her generation) other pics include my boys' hands holding a frog and a broken egg from a bird's nest, Geof's hand holding Addie's little foot, my friend Ashli and her husband's hands on their wedding day and my friend Nancy's hand holding evidence of nature's obsession with detail.
I love making pages like these, where you pull together the same type of photo (easy to do with category drawers!)
I can't wait to see your pages posted in the SS reader gallery. Here is some info on how to do this. We are drawing prizes each week from those that participate!!
American Crafts Thickers and alpha rub ons
Doodlebug letter stickers (sorry, I can't pull up the site today?)
Making Memories mini circle tabs
Bo Bunny double dot brads
Heidi Swapp ghost heart
this cool new punch from Stampin Up! Here's how you can find a demonstrator near you.
THREE. I never have enough time to browse booths at CHA. This means there is a TON I didn't even see — in spite of this fact, I came away with three top picks that I'm sharing today, tomorrow and Thursday. Pick #1 is …
this ADORABLE portable "Bucket" printer from Canon. It's called The Selphy and I was so happy to
finally see a well designed, white printer for people like me that don't want a big black or silver space-aged looking printer in their creative space.
so … the printer itself is the top portion of the bucket that lifts off. You can then store your paper, ink cartridges and even your small digital camera in the bucket and be portable — how cool (and CUTE) is this?
Did I mention the white, yellow and green and very playful design will look REALLY good in my studio?
So, I'm working with Canon to see if we can give one of these cuties away here on the blog or over at BPS.
Stay tuned on that one!
p.s. I'm testing the Evoca widget on my blog (right sidebar) Give it a try for me. All you have to do is allow Evoca access to your computer's microphone and then you can record a voice message, that they will send to me. Tell me what you are looking for in a photo printer — and I just might share some of your messages.
