I was going to start this post off by complaining about why 2016 is already one of the worst years yet and then (vaguely) justify why this is so. Then I realized that this would only further dampen this new year (how are we only 16 days in?!), there are so many things to be thankful and grateful for, and not focusing on those very things would be a catastrophic mistake. I am thankful, I am grateful, I know how blessed I am (and hopefully you do as well.) But I'm also a sucker for any chance to use a good GIF.
I've been curled up watching the Harry Potter movies, recovering from a nail biting PSG win, eating cookies and hiding from the world. I recommend it, it's a nice respite no matter how temporary! Another great remedy? My favorite Snape/Alan Rickman GIFs. Yes, I DO in fact have a sub-folder of my favorite HP/Snape/AR GIFs. It is weird(ly useful), I know.
Now that that's done...I have new kits to show, shop offers to remind you of and a kit to give away. First up is your look at my first new release of 2016: WINTER FUN! This collection includes 6 packs and you can purchase each separately in the shop. If you love winter and you love fun then "Winter Fun" is obviously the perfect kit for you!
I've kicked off my 2016 Donor Club and have your first look at some of the amazing things I'll be giving out this year to all members. What's a Donor Club? I'm glad you asked! The Donor Club is, essentially, one year of access to exclusive freebies, free kits, special offers and more. These freebies are in addition to the freebies I regularly give out on the blog and many of which will be available exclusively to donor club members. DC members will also receive one full kit from my shop each month as a free gift. Sounds pretty cool, eh? Pick up your membership over in the shop!
The first DC goodies of the year are out and you can now take a peek at the first freebies you'll be receiving. Multiply what you see below x 12 and you'll get a rough idea of what to expect with your membership.
Take advantage of my other fabulous holiday offers while they're still available.
Get everything I released last year when you purchase my 2015 Shop Offer. You'll receive everything you see below and a $20 Gift Card to use in my 2016 shop - all for $20! Crazy? Yes, CRAZY AWESOME!
Looking for something even better? My "Take the Lot" offer is perfect for you!
My "Take the Lot" offer comes with not only my 2015 store but my entire shop - that's 450+ kits - plus a $20 Gift Card to my 2016 shop for $25. Yep, it really is that faboo! ;-) It would be impossible to show everything included but I've made an attempt below (and above - you get the 2015 shop as well, don't forget).
Now what you've all been waiting for...the latest downloads for "Yer a Wizard, Harry" are here. I've decided to give out one of my favorite kits and you can collect it over the next few days. Stay up to date on when and where you can download each part by following me on Facebook.
Part two of the HP patterns will be available in Saturday's newsletter...while part one is available in Friday's newsletter.
Pick up the "Harry" add-on in the Facebook post I've linked below.
I gave out the coordinating alphas in Thursday's blog post but you can also find it here.
Yesterday's blog freebie - the "Harry" elements - can be snagged below.
