FREEZE Frame Day 5 and Happy 2010!

I hope this is the BEST YEAR EVER for everyone!!!  2009 has been such a tumultous time for everyone I know, and I would be lying if I said I wasn’t ready to see it on its merry way!

I’m back again with two more FREEZE Frames!  WOOT!

You might remember Chick Flick from our recent VIP Kit, but I can’t wait till we can REALLY show it off!  Plus, there will be some fun, limited edition products along with the set that are the cherry on top!

But this next set you HAVEN’T seen, and can’t even be purchased in Jan, although you can get it for FREE!

In 2010, MFT is stepping up the Triple Scoop Promo (and many other things, just for all of YOU!) to a brand new, UNRELEASED set, most often from our new Clearly Sentimental line!  In January, our Triple Scoop Promo set (free with the purchase of 3 full sized, $15.95 or higher sets) is Clearly Sentimental about Emerson.

Ralph Waldo Emerson is one of my favorite authors to quote.  Many of you might not know this, but my Mom was a New Thought Minister before she passed away in 2004.  (Think Unity, or United Centers for Spiritual Living)  Emerson was a huge favorite of hers, and my guess is she read every word he ever wrote.  Mom was the very first woman Minister in Religious Science (now called United Centers for Spiritual Living) a non-demoninational faith and quite a pioneer!  She was an amazing Minister, who literally grew several churches from scratch, and was the go-to girl for rescuing ailing churches.  She left behind a wonderful legacy, and when I I decided to create the Clearly Sentimental line, Emerson was the FIRST full sized set I knew I would create.  The set is filled with my very favorite Emerson quotes ever, and I hope you’ll enjoy it.

Thanks so much for all of your support in 2009, it has meant the world to me to have grown in such a turbulent time, and I am both humbled and thankful that you choose to spend your time stamping with MFT!

We have wonderful things in store for 2010 because YOU deserve it!

FREEZE Frame Day 4 & Countdown to Savings

Good morning!  Thanks SO much for your sweet comments on yesterdays post. I love it when you leave some love!! :0)

FREEZE Frame

Today I have a double FREEZE Frame, aren’t you excited!  One of things I need serious help with is organization. While Jody has little books with vital info on all her friends and family with their birthdays and favorites (I SWEAR she takes notes when I’m talking to her), I have scribbled bits of post it notes.  Sigh.  It’s a mess.  And one I am VOWING to change in 2010!  So, of course, it was Jody who suggested to create an EASY way of keeping track of all the important stuff.  She wanted calendars, and lists for things to do and birthday books and more.  And since this was something I need help with, we designed the coolest template/stamp set combo ever!

Below is a FREEZE Frame for Make the Date, which will release on Jan 6th along with 5 new Templates!  I am NOT spilling the beans on the templates, but just know that I am lazy.  I am not gonna stamp 31 numbers for 12 months or align a calendar grid.  I have a very short attention span, but want things to look like I’ve spent hours!  Snort!

Make the Date contains what you’ll need for calendars, but there is SO much more that can be created with this set.  To Do Lists, Invitations, personalizing birthday’s, all kinds of book creations, and the list goes on.  I can’t wait to share it ALL with you, but alas, that must wait till next week!

The second FREEZE Frame today is a companion set for Bling ‘Bet.  It’s of course call Bling ‘Bers!  It has numbers and punctuation and all kinds of fun!  And, just wait till you SEE what the DT has created with this beauty.  A M A Z I N G.

FREEZE Frame Day 3 & Wednesday Stamp Club

Happy Wednesday!  I am back this morning after spending most of yesterday with Brianna, as she turned 17.  The most fun part of the day was arriving home after shopping with her and her other mother, our next door neighbor (doesn’t every girl need two mothers?), and hearing her scream when she saw what was in the driveway!

With much help from our next door neighbors, we surprised her with an older Honda Civic as her fist car.  I am honestly so tired of hauling her everywhere, and she is such a good kid that we just found a way to make it happen.  It’s certainly not a car from my “Sweet 16″, but it’s nicer than my first car (and several after my first too!).  And, it comes complete with Hello Kitty seat covers and a steering wheel cover, so she’s in Heaven!  Happy 17th B, I am honored to be your Mom!

And now that the gushy stuff is over, are you guys ready for todays FREEZE Frame???  I thought you might be!  Although it comes with its own gushy story…

FREEZE Frame Day 3

Here is one of the 5 new Pure Innocence sets we will be introducing.  There are 2 NEW characters joining MFT Pure Innocence family in January as well, so be prepared to be attacked with cuteness!

This set, Start the Day with “Whee” was designed in concept by my hubby, Martin, based on our youngest daughter, Emma.  Brianna’s school starts about 45 minutes before Emma’s does, so when the weather is nice Martin takes Emma to the local park during that time.  Emma runs and plays, but saves the very best for last…the SWING.  Papa (as she calls him) will push her on the swing, and she throws her head back and yells “whee”!  Martin came home one afternoon and suggested to base a PI set on his morning ritual with Emma, and even suggested the sentiment, Start each day with “whee”!.  Isn’t that cool???  Who says men don’t get it…

If you’d like to WIN one of these little beauties, list your info in the Mr. Linky box below.
