I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Our Thanksgiving weekend is slowly drawing to a close - it is extended by a day because our son and daughter-in-law don't fly back to California until Tuesday. We actually had an early Christmas with them since it is their year to be on the West Coast for Christmas. I have been cooking and baking and enjoying family time - but I did manage to fit in a little shopping too!
Today is "Cyber Monday" - the biggest online shopping day of the year. There are deals everywhere and it would be a good idea to start visiting your favorite sites early in the day since servers are often overloaded with big sale days.
Here are a few of the sites I'll be checking out...
Blitsy has some special Cyber Monday bargains - the sale goes live at 6 a.m. Central Time. The prices should be even better then their usual great deals.
Blitsy is a membership shopping site. Membership is free - you just have to register. Once you have registered you can refer friends and earn credits. If you have never registered at Blitsy, here is my referral LINK - thanks for using my link!
For Cyber Monday, the Cricut website continues to have 40% off on cartridges, Cuttlebug, Cardstock, Vinyl and Iron-On along with some great deals on machines. For an extra bonus, any purchase of $10 or more (before tax and shipping) will receive a $10 digital image credit.
Don't forget to use the code BF2013SHIP to get free shipping - no minimum order size. Click HERE to see all of the deals.
Twisted Papers - one of my favorite sources for interesting vintage images - is offering a great deal. Everything on their website is half price - who wouldn't want to save 50%? Just enter the code CYBER50 at checkout (the minimum purchase is $5 and this deal lasts until December 4th).
The Twisted Papers website is very well organized - which is helpful since there are over 10,000 images! The Christmas card images are divided into seventeen categories. I used this pretty Christmas ornament image (in the red box) from the Ornaments, Bells and Candy Canes section to make the title image for this blog post.
By a funny coincidence, just above it is one of the first Twisted Papers images I ever used back in 2009. You can see the tutorial I did about that HERE.
I have a lot of fun taking vintage images and transforming them into something new. I use the Artisan software program from Panstoria (this was formerly sold by Creative Memories as StoryBook Creator) to make this Santa ornament design. I am planning to do a print and cut of the design with my Cameo machine.
Don't forget, Silhouette America is offering some incredible deals on machines and supplies on their website. All of the items in the Silhouette Online store are 50% off - with the clearance items at 75% off. Use the code HOLIDAY to get the special pricing. This sale lasts until December 8, 2013 at 11:59 p.m. Mountain Time.
Today is the last day to register at a great discounted price for the new True Scrap Pocket Pages event coming up on January 25, 2014 The normal price is $149 but during the Black Friday/Cyber Monday weekend sale you can get it for just $47 - a savings of over $100! The sale ends on Monday at midnight. Just click HERE to go to the class page, see all of the details and register.

These are just a few of the many sales going on today - I might fill a few shopping carts to "help" my husband with my Christmas list... I hope you find some of the things you want on sale for a great price!
