    Thanksgiving and Black Friday

    Hi there everyone and Happy Thanksgiving to everyone in the US! It's been a busy week here. I've been slacking on my homework and trying to get a few things done at home and in the shop, plus Emma's been sick and had another dentist appt.

    So here's the deal for this weekend, DigiByDesign is having a Black Friday sale that for 2 hours (9-11pm eastern) the ENTIRE SHOP IS 75%OFF! If you miss that, the whole shop is 50% off Friday-Sunday.

    I turned in a few of my older Christmas kits and template sets so hopefully they'll be in the shop for Friday, but I make no promises. I'm slowly working on a few new goodies but well, school, Emma, Holidays... you get the picture. I did make a mini kit for the MK coming out on Monday Dec 1st. SO stop back by the blog and grab yourself a goodie!

    I also made you all a little something to help you remember what you're thankful for.

    I'm back!

    Yay! I found my PS disc! So as I was totally geeking out and missing scrapping I made you all a little something instead of doing my homework...bad Amy, bad!! So here you go a sweet little goodie from me to you!

    Download Blog Jumpstart No. 30

    Are you as jazzed as I am? Love being able to create again. Now I just need to find the camera cord so I can upload all these wonderful photos! I have vacation, pumpkin patch, Halloween, Emma's birthday and a couple of random shots too! I need that cord!

    I am sad that Sophia's is gone but I am heading back over to DigiByDesign. Well, at least sticking my foot in the door. As of right now I'll be helping to do ADs for them and maybe some CT work. We'll have to see if I have enough time to get back into designing for real with that going on. They are looking for new designers over there so head over and check it out! I'd still be there but the whole school thing got in the way.

    Okay enough from me I'll check with you all later I need to go do some homework!

    Happy Scrapping!

    The Golden Rule

    Hello everyone!
    Today is Emma's 4th birthday! I'm sad that I didn't get a chance to finish a cool month long kit like last year. (I had started one but well you all know what happened there.) We already had her party so today's highlight was that she got to bring cupcakes to school, these ones we made to look like pumpkins since the lesson theme for the next 2 weeks is Thanksgiving.

    A couple of quick reminders:
    The Sophia Sarducci Shoppe is closed but you still have 5 days to grab any downloads you bought.

    Action FX is offering their one day membership for $7.95, great chance to download massive amounts of CU goodies at a fabulous price!

    Princess Pam is up to the letter Y in her ABC kits! If you haven't gone and looked yet you really need to see these fantastic goodies!
    Jen has some awesome Whimsical Winter word art on her blog. (It's been up for a week but it's still fabulous!)
    Barb has made you all a festive ornament to get you into the holiday spirit.


    Now on to my post for the day. Have you ever thought about the "Golden Rule"? It's funny how just about every religion and culture on Earth has a version of this gem of wisdom. And knowing that it's the best guide I can see for a universal moral code.
    (Can you tell I'm taking Ethics this session?)

    The Golden Rules

    "Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them, for this is the law and the prophets." - Matthew 7:12

    "What is harmful to you, do not to your fellow men. That is the entire Law; all the rest is commentary." - Talmud, Shabbat, 312

    "This is the turn of duty; do naught unto others which could cause you pain if done to you." - Mahabharata, 5, 1517

    "Surely it is the maxim of loving-kindness: Do not unto other that you would not have them do unto you." - Analects, 15, 23

    "Regard your neighbor’s gain as your own gain and your neighbor’s loss as your own loss."
    - T’sai Shang Kan Ying P’ien

    "Hurt not others in ways you yourself would find hurtful." - Udana-Varga, 5, 18

    "That nature alone is good which refrains from doing unto another whatsoever is not good for itself." - Didistan-i-dinik, 94, 5

    "No one of you is a believer until he desires for his brother that which he desires for himself." – Imam An-Nawawi’s 40 Hadiths, 13
    Just some food for thought as we enter this holiday season!
    Happy Scrapping everyone!

    Ever wonder?

    So I should go to sleep but instead I wanted to see what popped up when I Googled my name. But not the site hits but under images. The coolest hing is if you do Amy Watson you see a ton of my designs used in layouts and some neat photos of a ballet dancer- LOL! And under Amy W. you see lots of the previews of my products along with more layouts you wonderful people have made. Just made me smile. Okay, I finished my homework and so now I'm off to bed. I'll catch you all later! :)

    Oh and Emma's party was lovely. I'll post more about it later but we had cute little fairies and pirates running around all over the place! So much fun!

    Happy Scrapping Everyone!

    * Don't forget only 5 days left to get my stuff at 50% off

    My shop is closing!

    Hi there everybody! My Adrianna Lunette line over at Sophia Sarducci will be gone soon. Sophia Sarducci Shoppe is closing it's doors on the 15th of November (downloads availble thru 11/23). On the up side the vault is open until the 15th and the whole shoppe is 50% OFF too! So hurry over and grab what you want before it disappears forever! I won't be looking for a new shop anytime soon so I don't know if/when I'll have new products for you all to enjoy (Besides the lack of PS). Please head on over and take a look. Thanks,
    P.S. Mrs. Miles sells at SSS too as Olivia Dorazio, so check out her shoppe while you're there!
