I held a little giveaway to help promote the Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale this weekend.   It was for a Scribbleprints Sample pack with cards, bookmarks, and stickers. It's over but you I often hold small giveaways on my site, so check back now and then and see what I have going.

Two Question Thursday/Aloha Friday

Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday. Every Friday (well, ok, almost every Friday) I ask a simple question for you to answer--nothing that requires a lengthy response.    I'm combining this with Two Question Thursday (same idea...only TWO questions).  If you'ld like to, comment with an answer to one or both of the questions below:
  • Do you go out shopping on black friday?  Or stay home?
  • If you do plant to go out shopping, is there a certain item that's the main reason you're going?  And if so, how did you find out about it?    
I'll be staying in, promoting my own Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale!

If you have a blog and would like to post your own questions you can leave your link on the appropriate day at the linkys at 2 Questions Thursday and An Island Life.

Magic Marker Monday

I hadn't shown off my kids art here in quite a while....so long in fact that one or two pieces just won't do.  They just brought home a bunch of really neat fall art from school, so I had to share the whole fridge-full!

Love all those pumpkins and leaves and bright colors!

 Here's a close up of the scarecrow my 7 year old did.

And heres some fun farm animals!  My seven year old made the chicken, and was really proud of the shading he did (and with good reason, I think!).  The pig is by my 6 year old.  Notice the popsicle sticks for the fence!  He's always loved using three dimensional stuff.  For the longest time he had no interest in drawing, but if you brought out dried spaghetti or yarn he loved to make pictures with those.  Since Kindergarten he's started to enjoy drawing more, but those popsicle sticks make me smile because that's just so HIM. 

That's actually only HALF the art on my fridge.   I'll share the rest soon!

Scribbleprints IPhone and IPad Cases!

CafePress and Zazzle both came out with iphone cases this week!  Lucky me because I get to offer them with my designs you you!

 The cases at CafePress are hard plastic available  in two styles for iPhone 4 and one for  iPhone 3G. They usually cost $22.99 at my shops but right now you can get them for $19.99 in the CafePress Marketplace (not sure how long the sale will go for...it was supposed to end last night but just checked and the cases are still marked down):
click here for my artistic designs, or here for my humorous slider cases.

Oh, and CafePress is giving away some free IPhone cases to 100 random winners who email iphonewinner@cafepress.com November 18.  οnlу one email per email address – duplicates will bе deleted. Include уour mailing address. Cafepress will not spam уου аftеr this.  Click here for more giveaways.

New Ornaments at My Zazzle Shop!

I just finished a bunch of new ornaments for my Zazzle shop!   

Scribbleprint Christmas ornament Lady ornament
Scribbleprint Heart ornament Scribbleprint Star ornament

35% Off Ornaments
Through December 16, 2010

See All Designs Here!

For a long time now I've had oval and circle shaped ornaments at my CafePress Shops...but some of you will remember when I had heart and star shaped ornaments through my ArtsNow shop.  When I closed that shop down (for various reasons) those ornaments were the hardest thing to lose.

Well, now Zazzle has them!  They do cost more than the ones currently at my CafePress shop, but they come in more shapes (not only heart and star, but metal cirlces and squares and a t-shirt shape, which I have yet to try but am thinking of some designs for).    Unlike my CafePress ornaments these can be customized, and have front and back printing.  That means that you can put a picture or personal message on the front or back!

TIP:  Designs with printing on the back cost a few dollars more, so if you don't care about back printing and want to save a little you can remove the design from the back using the customization tool.  For un-customized circle and oval ornaments, you can get a better price at my CafePres Shop.

Music That Moves Me

A funny thing happened last week.  The blogger over at Xmas dolly invited me to join in on her meme, Monday Music Moves me, which happened to have a country theme.  The first thing I thought of was this funny Texas song that I had just been waiting for an excuse to share on my other blog, Texifornia.  But in stead of clicking on Texifornia when I posted it, I clicked on Scribbleprints, and accidentlally posted it here...I even copied the link and shared it on the meme before I realized I'd put it in the wrong place.  So I went back and fixed things, and deleted it here, but because the original link on Monday Music Meme could only be taken down by the blogger, people were coming here looking for it for a while before it was taken down.

That's all taken care of, but it got me thinking of some beautiful country songs I love that I WOULD like to share with you all here.  So, I'm going to do a Music Post here after all.

The first song I'd like to share is "You Say It Best When You Say Nothing At All" sung by Alison Krauss.  I'm a bit of a country fan.  My husband is NOT.  But, regardless, when we were dating every time this song came on the radio I'd have to stop whatever I was doing and listen to it, because it made me think of him.

Though it isn't one I relate to as much as the first, I love the mournful beauty of the next song by Trisha Yearwood.

If you'ld like to see what other bloggers have picked to feature, you can find more Country Music posts here...
