one more day!

One more day! Check in tomorrow to see why I've been jumping outta my seat for weeks!

Here are some hints...
1. 4 FABULOUS packs of paper to give away.
2. 6 stamp sets to give away.
3. One big prize to give away from a scrappy store.
4. A sketchy partner in crime to announce.
5. A DT to announce.
7. And a new place to play!

OK, I may have given too much away, but you're intrigued, right?! I wanted to announce everything today, but I had a difficult time saying 9/11 was a launch date.

Take a moment to reflect today on those whose lives were changed forever on this date 8 years ago. I know Americans were deeply affected, but I'm convinced our friends abroad also felt the sting that came with such tragedy. If it could happen here, it could happen anywhere, right?

Hug a loved one today. Hold them tight.

Ciao friends! See you tomorrow!!

You are such a tease! Such excitement here!

And you're right... I can't speak for everyone but I'm British and it certainly caused a lot of sorrow over here too. I remember I'd just driven a 5 hour drive and arrived at my destination to find everyone gathered around the TV watching the events unfold. I thought it was a hoax. We stayed up until the middle of the night watching the horror.

Although I am all the way down under in Australia we were all deeply affected by 9/11. Last year when I was in Newyork I went on the harbour cruise and heard the very sad stories of everyone who were affected, upto now its still a vivid memory I will never ever forget.

On a cheerier note looking forward to all the exciting happenings on this great site
