March 2011

You got it folks, stolen directly from the Newsletter, because who else can say it any better than Toiny?!  Certainly not me!!  Of course, there is a brand NEW Spit Spot FREEBIE at the end of the post by yours truly!  ;)  And, after playing with this kit, I can whole-heartedly say that this is a MUST HAVE for your collection!!  Check it out!!  :)
Who’s in the mood for pink!  Tessa!  LOL, bet you thought I was going to say “me”!  I love this kit, but I’m in a blue mood.  Not blue, moody blue, but blue because it makes me happy.  That’s not to say I’m not in love with this kit.  It is gorgeous and absolutely perfect for my FeFiFoFessa.
Take one look at this breath-taking kit and tell me it doesn’t have my beautiful, girly, daughter written all over it?  It’s oozing feminity.  And it’s our DOTD!
Or you can get the Spit Spot Bundle at our fantabulous DOTD price of $5.09.  Perfect pricing to also grab our brandnew Free Gift with Purchase: Winter BloomAlso by Booland Designs and featuring some gorgeous blues.  Me & Tess are both #winning today.

Also, theStudio is gearing up for our Spring Fling Celebration!

The Perfect Light

by Toiny Westberry on 30 March 2011
in Cole,Kids Pin this scrappy stuff!

Ever have the absolute perfect light?  You can see it through the view finder on the camera.  You can see it just by looking around you.  And inside you are just bursting to take that perfect picture.  This happened to me this week.  Perfect light.  I so wanted the perfect picture.  For me the perfect picture is of my kids.  Tess was too far away, riding a horse, and Dane was being three.  That left Cole.
Still no perfect picture.


I wanted to strangle him.  That is the best face out of 20?  30?  It’s SOOC (straight out of the camera).  No tweaking, no actions.  Perfect light.  Sigh.  I can’t wait to embarrass him with this later in life. 
Cole is actually being a pretty awesome kid lately.  Still in the early throes of adolescence, but more good moments than bad.  And, since I’m sharing that lovely picture, and my complete feelings of frustration with him from that day, a little Cole brag… the boy is speaking beautiful German!  He sounds like a native to me.  I’m beyond impressed that after 1 1/2 years he’s doing so well.
Not just well, he brought home a 1,5 on his German paper (ie, English paper) this week.  Where 1 is the best he could possibly get.  They don’t hand them out often at all.  A quick rundown of the system here.  I’ve had to look it up more than once myself LOL.
1 (sehr gut, very good)
2 (gut, good)
3 (befriedigend, satisfactory)
4 (ausreichend, sufficient)
5 (mangelhaft, deficient)
6 (ungenügend, insufficient)

Hi Everyone!

I’m doing a little Spring Cleaning of my store, bundling and cleaning up some of my older products to make new for some of the new product lines I’m working on! (coming soon!)

So to celebrate spring cleaning I’m having a 1 week only 50% Off sale of my Black Label Classics! These bundles are huge, so make sure you’ve got plenty of time to download them! :-)  Enjoy this lovely coordinating Spring Clustered Frame as well!
