As the New Year approaches........

I hope you all had a wonderful CHRISTmas! We spent Christmas Eve with our friends Jay, Dinger and Pat. Jay and Dinger provided us with a wonderful meal of ham, sweet potatoes and baked macaroni & cheese. It was soooooo good! Jay's dog, Micki, provided us with the entertainment! LOL!

One more week and it will be 2008! Can you believe it? A lot has happened for Nini's Notions in 2007 -- I reached my two year anniversary as a digital designer and one year anniversary of selling at Digitals. I became exclusive to Digitals at the end of August, so that is the only place you can purchase my designs.

I reached 1,000 posts in the forum/gallery last week. I never thought I would be able to do it, but the next level is 3,000 and I am now working toward that.

On a personal note, Nini received her first Social Security benefit check in October! Not a lot, but at least it is something. And... her Medicare benefits become effective 4/01/2008! Ahhhh, ain't retirement life grand? LOL!

Well, all for now. My next post will be about the new challenge I am hosting at Digitals beginning in January.

Happy "Black Friday" everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and didn't eat too much! We spent the evening with our friends Jay and Dinger who went all out and prepared a fantastic turkey with all the trimmings! Better than the food was the time we spent around the fire talking and reminiscing.

Well, the Christmas Holidays are officially here, I guess, and this weekend there are a lot of sales going on in the digital community, not the least of which is the storewide sale at Digital Scrapbook Pages (Digitals) . There are over 30 fantastic grab bags for both personal and commercial use! I guarantee you won't find more beautiful products anywhere else (see the ads at the top of this post). So, to all of you, shop till you drop!

As for good old "Last Minute Annie" here, I have been working furiously to finish my latest grab bag. See the preview above.

IN OTHER NEWS: I talked to my good friend Janette Padley of Dragons Lair Designs today. For those of you not familiar with her work -- it is just gorgeous! Her blended floral backgrounds are stunning! Heads up designers! Janette will be releasing some new designer resources soon, and, having had a sneak peek, I can guarantee you won't be disappointed!

My First Post

Well, I finally did it! Welcome to my new blog. I don't know how proficient I will be about keeping up with it, but I hope that you all will bear with me on this. Once I learn how to do everything here, I hope to post previews of my newest digital kits and links to some of my fellow designers' items.
Speaking of designers -- I would like to thank Paula Yagisawa for featuring my Absolute Serenity II Page Kit and a layout she did with it on her blog. For those of you who are not familiar with Paula's work, she has created the most fabulous designer resources with her embroidery designs. Some pieces made with her designs are included in the kit. To visit Paula's blog: You can find her finished kits and her designer resources at Gotta Pixel:
