Not really sure how to do this. This is the first time we have done one of these give-aways. The rules for our blog are simple. You go over to our store and Pick out 2 products you would like by Acorn Designs. You then come back here and post a comment telling us what 2 products you would like. We will have a random drawing on the Nov 4th to chose a winner. All entries must be in by Midnight Nov 3 EST. You may only pick kits by Acorn Designs not by any other designer. We will then send you a coupon so that you may pick up the 2 products you picked if you are the winner. There is a coupon in an older post here on the blog for 30% off. This coupon will expire Nov 9, 2007

New products and sale

Watch out for those eyes that are peeking out of the dark, the rustle of the leaves as you pass by and even that spider hanging from the tree. They may get you in that Scarrrry Night.

Goblins, ghoulies, and little ghosties,

These are things that scare me mostly,

Glowing eyes and an eerie scream,

Nighttime things aren’t what they seem.

Swishing breeze, is that a bat?

Oh my, oh my, it was just a cat!

These types of things give me a fright,

Awful things going bump in the night.

-Laura B. Mundy

Timeless Elegance Day 8

I would like to thank Rose Addict for the wonderful name that she has given our kit. So the name is Timeless Elegance. There is no preview to it yet as we are still making kit. Sorry this was not on time today but I had a ruff night and once I was able to get some sleep it was 2:30 this after noon when I did get up. Yes, I missed my own chat today but Beth was there and she PM'ed everyone their gifts. And they was already on 4shared, all she would have had to do was look. The only thing she did not have was the coupons codes for 3 of the prizes. Those were in my e-mail with no way for her to get to. Don't forget that if you missed any parts of Dog Wood, that you can find them in our store. Gone

Day 7 freebie

Well I can't take to many days like today. I am burned out. We made a 240 meg kit today, as well as I uploaded 3 kits each to 2 different stores. that includes having to rezip each and every file in the whole thing. Managed to keep up with my e-mails, get my dailies and God only knows what else I did. I even added a few more papers to this. Here is your Freebie for today. Starting tomorrow I am going to start taking them down one by one so get them while you can. Gone

Day 6 freebie

Here is day 6 of this mini kit. Someone asked me if we had a name for this kit yet. well the answer is NO. We have not come up with a name . But we will let you know when we do. But let's get on with this show and your freebie. This is 2 nights in a row I have not been able to sleep and about mid morning I am going to be really cranky. Then I will have to go take a nap and take the edge off of me like I did yesterday. But todays freebie is lace. I hope you enjoy it. Gone

I almost forgot. I put Rainy Day Bear in the store at 25% off for one week only. This is an expanded version. I have added the parts that had been once used as chat freebies.

Anyone want a black cat named Bear. She will sleep on your keyboard, your mouse and your lap all at one time. Then get mad at you if you have the nerve to tell her to get down. But she really is loving. Just a VERY BIG PEST.

Beth finally has a product in our store at Scrapbookers Playground. She has Birthday Bonanza in the store at 20% off. Not sure what date the sale will end. I no she would have set it for 1 week but not sure when she got it in the store. So If you want to pick it up run over there now before the sale is gone. I do know that there are 2 more products uploaded ready to go into the store. For some reason Beth is having troubles with the FTP server timing out on her. That means once she has the product packaged she must send to me by way of MSN Live. and I have to upload. MSN takes a while to transfer the files so it takes longer to get the products in the store. But I can upload faster than she can anyway so it does not bother me. I set them to start uploading when I go to bed and then when I get up they are done. Would you believe that she has cable and I have DSL? At least Verizon is more stable here than they was at my old house. Or else I would be dealing with a slow cable connection also. LOL

Day 5 gift

Sorry about the delay in posting this. I have been having issues with this darn computer. I also have a cat that has decided to sleep on my key board or in my lap which makes typing rather hard. Bear has allergies and when she can't breath she wants her mommy and there is no moving her. Today we have another paper for you in this mini kit. We hope you enjoy it. Gone

Is it Saturday?

Is it Saturday already? Well, I guess it is. I suppose you all are waiting on your freebie for today. Here I am with it. Also I realized that some of you may only come here on the weekends so I have put day 1 and day 2 freebies back up for you. The blog party will be coming down on Sunday night so if you have not grabbed your files please get then now. I would not want any of you all to miss out.

Oh let me tell you about my Bear. That is the pure black cat. Some how she managed to get the catnip out from under the scratch pad. The chewed threw the bag and at it. I wish I had my camera handy that night, she was so high that she could not stand up. Then Piglet discovered that Bear had it and a fight broke out over this bag that was all but empty. I was rolling on the laugh laughing. It was so funny. For those who may not know, catnip to a cat is like weed to a human.

Our NEW kit Get Well Bear is on sale for 25% off at Scrappers Zone. From cozy quilts to Band-Aids, Get Well Bear is ready to scrap those not so happy times when loved ones are under the weather. Bright and cheerful colors make this kit ideal for making those get-well cards too.

Very Honored

We are very honored to have received this award...The very sweet Michelle McCoy nominated us...Thank you so much...We have never been nominated for something like this and we are just beside ourselves with pride of being picked...((HUGS)) I guess we have to pass this on to 5 others also.
We had to stop and really think about this and then the two of us had to agree. Our very first pick will have to be Tracy King who not only puts a daily up every day but she also has 6 stores, writes actions for CS2 and still finds time to design some really wonderful kits.
Our second pick is Marcee who has more talent than just a little bit. She is a really great designer, she has 3 stores and runs chats at 2 of them. She runs around like a chicken with her head cut of because she is so busy but she really is a wonderful person.
Our third pick will have to be our very own boss Michelle. She runs two stores, put everything into them and even finds time to run a chat. We know we drive her bonkers but she really is the most wonderful person we could ask for in a boss. She don't even yell when we send her 30 or 40 products at a time to put in the store. We love ya bass.
Our forth pick has got to be fishinmom who has no idea just how much talent she has. She puts the most wonderful freebies on her blog. Really wish we could get her on our team.
Our last pick, well she was suppose to be our second pick until she decided to give me a different award. Will be Amy. She has these really wonderful templates that we just can't seem to pass up. She also keeps us up to date of the freebies on other blogs.We love her even if she is a meanie and won't let us take credit for manufacturing her kits. We even offered to let her have half the money.

What kink of award got Amy knocked from 2nd to 5th you may ask. We she had the nerve to give me this award.
