Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to all of you amazing Mamas out there - especially the cool ones!

As the daughter to one of the world's best moms (and sister to another amazing new mom!) I can vouch for everyone when I say it is truly impossible to express how much you are loved, how necessary you are to our lives and our happiness, how grateful we are to have your support, understanding and unconditional love.  

There's no better way to kick off a Mother's Day (or any day!) than with this Brunch Crew. I don't exactly know why my hair looks as if half of my head is shaved and that the other half has never been brushed...but who can seriously look at anything other than Q's dimples?  Exactly.  I. AM. SO. FULL.  Gourmet Macaroons at breakfast?  Every day should be Mother's Day! Brunch at the 624 is an absolute must, trust me. 

Before I pass out in a post-Brunch food coma I wanted to remind you all of what's happening this fabulous iNSD 2016 weekend!  The offer of all offers is most definitely this baby!  Get ALL of my kits released January 1 - June 1 (45 packs/kits thus far!), a $20 GC you can use through August 1 AND a $10 discount on part two (coming in December!) of my shop.  

A close look at what's included....

How 'dem iNSD freebies??  You have to go big or you might as well stay home!  So far I've given out the ABC 123 Numbers Elements, ABC 123 Word Art and the Gone Fishin elements.  You'll find part of the ABC 123 Numbers in today's post, part two in tomorrow's post, the Gone Fishin alphas later over on Facebook and the Gone Fishin Patterns in tomorrow's newsletter.  Got all that?  Okay, let's try this again!

May the 4th be with you!

The iNSD party doesn't start until this weekend but my Star Wars loving heart just couldn't wait to give you a freebie!  I've never missed a good opportunity to give away freebies so why start now?  My niece is obsessed with robots.  Like OBSESSED.  We spent part of Saturday playing with her new R2D2 bubble machine and she absolutely loved it.  She loved it even more when she realized how funny it was to direct the bubbles at Reeses (my doxy/beagle mix) which led to Quinn picking up R2D2 and giving Reeses a steady stream of bubbles to follow her all around the yard. 

I really, really wanted to make a Star Wars robot kit in honor of my niece's love but I try to avoid infringing on the work of others - not to mention avoiding any and all Disney/LucasFilm lawsuits!  Luckily I DO have this robot kit that I whipped up a while ago and I'm going to be sharing it with you all in honor of it being May 4th!  But first.... I have Star Wars GIFs to share!

Are you guys ready for iNSD this weekend?!?!  You better be!  I've been busy, busy creating new kits and putting freebies, freebies, freebies for you all.  The fun officially begins on Friday but I'm releasing my biggest/best iNSD offer a day early.  Purchase the 2016 Part One Shop Offer to receive ALL kits released between January 1, 2016 and June 1,2016 for $30!  Check out the listing in the shop for all the details.  Offer expires May 14 so don't miss it. 

Ready for the freebie?  You've got it!

Stay tuned for iNSD freebies, more special offers and so much more!

May the force be with you...

Friday Freebie: #hashtag

We officially have a two year old! She was so pumped for her family party last night and it was all I could do to keep up with her.  My amazing brother in law spent three hours in the pitch dark wearing a head lamp putting together Q's new play set so it would be ready for to play with on for her birthday.  Seriously, what kind of parenting goals?  So we would run outside, climb up, down and all around, go down the slide, repeat 10x, then run back inside to look at the robot on her birthday cake, remind everyone she's two, ask if it was presents time and then back out the door we'd go to repeat it all again.  I definitely earned my slice of Robot cake (which was delicious!).  Next up is the "big" party on Saturday friends and family!  There's going to be a huge Elmo cake (it's obviously ~tacky to repeat the same cake!) so I'll be sure to let you all know which - Elmo or Robots - tasted best.

I may not have any birthday cake to share but I DO have a gift for everyone!  I'm celebrating #happybirthdayquinn by giving out my new kit - #HASHTAG - free to all of you.  I absolutely love the kit and hope you all will too.  

It's time to reveal even more of the kit! Next up?  The word art and alphas!  You can find word art pack one now over on Facebook, word art pack #2 in Saturday's newsletter and the alphas + patterns pack #3 in today's post. The elements will be coming Sunday so stay tuned!
