Hello, and Happy Monday! Did you notice that we have the Project Life GALLERY up & running now? If you haven’t checked it out yet, pop on over there. And know that we will work through a few technical kinks this week. In the meantime, some of you have already begun uploading your images and ideas to share. Thank you!

The winner of the PeachyCheap.com $100 shopping spree is … Cassie in Fort Lewis, Washington! I have to say, it wasn’t easy choosing a winner this time. I thoroughly enjoyed the creativity you put into your 3-worded reasons why you should win the prize. So many of you are deserving of such a lucky thing to happen to you.
Cassie, good luck with your 3rd deployment coming up this summer, and send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and she’ll hook you up.

If you are outside of the U.S. and you want the Project Life kit, go HERE and Tammy will take care of you. I noticed there are only about 100 kits left. Also, the kits are shipping now. This is not for pre-order. It’s buy-it-and-they’ll-ship-it-right-out. : )

If you’ve been working on your digital Project Life, I just wanted to send out a little friendly reminder that our big promotion of 20% off the printing cost is about to expire the end of this month. Everyone can play around and make a book (or more) for free. You just pay when you’re ready to have your book printed and shipped to you. OR … you can pay in advance (like … now) and save 20%. Again, that promotion ends March 31st. Go HERE for all the details.

After posting a link to get another one of my handwriting fonts for free, fellow blog reader, Shannon, wanted to research how to get her own handwriting as a font. And she wants to share her findings with YOU! Click on her note to be able to read Shannon’s message easier, and then if you’re interested, you can visit YourFonts.com.
Just so you know, I have not personally used this service, but I wanted to pass along this cool find … from one blog reader to another. Thanks for sharing, Shannon!

This is the most important thing I want to share with you today: THANK YOU FOR HELPING ME … HELP YOU. Last week I invited you to email me your feedback about a school kit I’m working on and the emails flooded my inbox in the best way. I’ve spent hours pouring over those emails … reading every single one, word for word. While I can’t possibly respond to the emails (that would take away from time spent on actually developing the kit) I am truly grateful for your input. My level of motivation and enthusiasm about the school kit was already pretty high and now it has quadrupled, people.
Thank you for inspiring me. Thank you for sharing. Thank you for the kindness in your emails and your blog comments. We really do have much in common, you and me. We want to preserve our stories, take great pictures, create beautiful books about our lives and our family’s story. But we want to simplify the process. We want our stuff organized and accessible so it can be enjoyed. We want to be realistic about what we can accomplish. We want to actually GET IT DONE. Not just think about it and plan to get around to it later. We don’t want to stress of “creative” details and embellishments.
Elizabeth said it best: “So want to scrapbook, so don’t have the time.”
I hear ya, Elizabeth.
You see, we help each other. You help me understand what your frustrations are in trying to manage all the stuff that comes home with your kids from school. You tell me what what you’d love to see in a kit. I do my best to provide inspiration and ideas and solutions, to help make life a little sweeter for you. And you make life a little sweeter for me too.
Uh-oh. I’m about to break into song, so I’m going to slip away now.
