Inspirations by Day

 So the other day, I got a freebie from one of my favorite sites, Hand Picked Freebies (under new ownership! It's back pretty regularly, now!), and I saw a freebie that I wanted. I've been very picky about my freebies for a while now. I used to just download ANYTHING if it was free. Now that I actually know what I'm doing (LOL), I don't do that anymore! So anyway, this was a few elements from the kit Spring Kissed by Inspirations by Day.
In the freebie download was a coupon for $2 off the whole kit. Now that was nice to begin with, so we'll call this 'Nice Thing from Day # 1." So I decided to buy said kit. I really liked it! Here's a preview of the kit:

Pretty, huh? I have scrapped with it yet, but I can't wait! The colors are just so vibrant!

So when I bought this kit, I liked the alpha that went with it, so I bought it, too. After I had paid and had the downloads going, I realized that I bought the alpha, but the alpha came WITH the kit, as well. What a duh!! moment for me! It's pretty unlike me not to notice something like that. So I was bummed, but just chalked it up to "Oh well. It was your stupid mistake!"
   So a couple days later, I got an e-mail from the designer herself, Day! How often does that happen? We'll call this "Nice Thing from Day #2." This is what her e-mail said:

"Hi Kate, I saw that you liked my kit Spring Kissed, thank you for supporting my store! I also noticed that you purchased the alpha in addition to the kit. However, the kit comes with the alpha so now you have it twice! Since I know how hard we all work for our fun $ I hate to see it wasted, so here's a $2 coupon to my store so you can buy something other than the alpha that you already had :)"

Now, how nice is that? And thus, the coupon is "Nice Thing from Day #3." And with that coupon, I got a lovely set of templates. Love me some templates!!

I wanted to share this story with you guys. Day in no way asked me to post this on my blog, but when you receive such care from a vendor, you need to share that! Word of mouth speaks volumes, my peeps! So, go visit Day's blog and shop. As we've established, she's REALLY nice!


  1. Oh my, I have warm fuzzies all over! You are adorable for posting this, thank you! It's always a pleasure to see my designs used and loved <3
