Sales, freebies and exciting things in store!

That's right, Saturday Nov 1st is a huge deal in the Scrapbooking community if you haven't noticed already. It is National Scrapbooking Day and there are some crazy deals all over the place!

First of all my stores will have 50% off ALL of my kits and alphas (sorry, the designer blinkies and banners will not be on sale). I also have a new kit which is darling and a grab bag with THREE new kits stuffed inside. It's worth $26 normally but will be on sale for only $4 on Saturday, $8 after that. Crazy, 3 kits for that price? They are really cute too, one in particular I was thrilled with and wanted to keep all to myself. (But where is the fun in that?) lol.

At Designs in Digital we also have 2 exciting freebies for you! Wahoo! First of all is this huge Treasure Hunt that will take you through a ton of stores. It's enormous... gigantic... and we pitched in. We're really excited about this and it's Saturday only.

We also have a beautiful kit named "New Beginnings" that will be part of a scavenger hunt. Once Saturday is over the pieces will be for sale and no longer free so check that out, they're beautiful!!!


My CT girl and friend Lisa has given me an award. :) Aww... I know I don't usually do these but thought I might as well take a break and do it.

The rules of this award are to say 7 things I love and to then pass this award onto 7 people.
So Here Goes

I LOVE ....
1. My husband, without him I wouldn't be who I am.
2. My children. Each of them is so special and I can't say enough how much I love them.
3. My religion. It makes me who I am and I love that my husband and I can raise our children with our beliefs and lifestyle.
4. PSP. It's so addictive and I can either make tags or scrapbook supplies.
5. My home. It's bigger than our last and we're planning on raising the kids here.
6. My husband enjoys his job... I love that.
7. I love being a SAHM. It's hard but I enjoy my kids.

Alright... 7 blogs? Shoot. Can't I just say I love everyone? lol. Oops, the kids are getting into trouble (laughing evilly)... until next time. I love so many I can't choose! :)

Got Sugar? Halloween Blog Train

That's right, it's a Halloween Blog Train and you're invited! The girls at the yahoo group "Truly Inspired" have a bunch of goodies for you all to gather.

Mine is only a few pieces but who knows what the other girls have to share. Since this is a Halloween treat I'll let it be a surprise. :) Download my pieces here:

When green witches cackle and
black ravens crow
and blogs take on an eerie orange glow...

When Ghosts and Goblins come knocking
dressed up in rags
looking for sugar to fill up their bags...

Try not to scream or run off in fright,
Truly Inspired has tricks that will
treat you just right!

Meaning behind the crazy name

Well I guess I should get around to explaining my odd name. :) I am actually Christina but my nickname Wimpychompers is odd and I realize that. There is a goofy reason behind it and no, my teeth aren't *that* bad. lol.

My best friend and I were at camp when we were 13 (it was a camp for girls and we go from the ages of 12 to 18... so fun!) Anyways, they were giving out nicknames as a joke around the campfire. My friend is a known wimp and she was nicknamed "Wimpy". They named other girls and by the time they got to me I was chewing bubble gum (I rarely ever did so this was an unusual thing for me). They nicknamed me "Chompers" which I hated but, of course, stuck. I was looking for a sign in name for something probably 10 years ago (ha, giving my age away now.. lol... I am 27 by the way) and put the two nicknames together. Ironically it worked and is not a common name (come on, who would use it?) That's how the nickname was born. I have my tutorial site "Wimpys Wonders" and then as a creator I go by "Wimpychompers Creations".

Had to share that with you today. It made me giggle.

Freebie from a friend and SALE

First of all, Sheri has asked me to use my kit "Pieces of Me" to make a brag book! From what I understand she'll release pieces of it every day for 6 days and I can't wait to see what she does. Her blog is

Free Kit and Tutorial

First of all look at this new tutorial by Donna using my recent kit "Royal Flush"... well, the image is being a booger so if you want come check it out... HERE

I have a freebie for you tonight as well. I've had these pieces in my "work in progress" folder (which is usually pretty full) but never felt like I could do much with it. I really liked some of the pieces though and made a mini kit that I thought I'd share!

edit 10/11/08- I've reloaded download #2 because 4shared wasn't playing nice. Hopefully that worked this time, let me know if it's still being a pain and I'll try another server to share it...

Ooh and I almost forgot this amazing layout (lol, how did that happen?) This is created by Mintika and is so adorable I asked her if she'd mind if I shared it. She created this layout using my kit "Heroes Never Die" which I am now selling at my stores.

New kits!

Well first of all, someone here loves me in the town I live... lol. Okay, so technically it's not me, it's just that our town needed a really cool store. We now have a SUPER TARGET and it's only a few miles from my house! Okay, so you may be laughing at me but oh holy cow... it's HUGE and BEAUTIFUL and I am so in Heaven. :) I took my three kids this morning, it's officially open even though the big grand opening isn't here yet. I was so thrilled... they first of all had a shopping cart that all three of my little ones could sit in. Yes, no one was walking. They were held captive! (giggling mother here) I didn't have to yell at them! Yay! I got what I needed and then some, I never can walk out of there with just a few things. (Partly why it's dangerous to let me loose there). Ahh... oh well. So that was my good news for today.

Other good news, almost forgot. I have some new kits for you and they are 50% off today (Wed) and 30% through Saturday!

I also am now selling my kits from the competition I was recently in... I appologize for anyone who missed them but you can buy them for not too much...
