Printing layouts

I have been printing my layouts at home. I have an Epson Artisan 710, which does an excellent job. However, the paper is almost $1 a sheet, plus add in the cost of ink and I'm probably spending $1.50 per print. I was listening to the Paperclipping Digi Show, and heard about Persnickety Prints dot com. I can get a premium quality 8x8 print for 99 cents.

Persnickety Prints also has some freebies, including this gorgeous kit, crazy beautiful by fei-fei's stuff.

Another great freebie link on Persnickety Prints is to a september desktop at digital scrap cafe.

Let me know if you've had prints made by Persnicket Prints.

Last week there was a fire at an apartment complex near my house. We first heard all the sirens and then could smell the smoke. The ambulance chaser that I am, it is surprising I waited two hours to go check it out. Of course I grabbed my camera. Two hours later and it was still burning. The apartment complex was a complete loss with 27 apartment dwellers losing everything. The fire was the result an explosion caused by meth makers.

Thank you to all firefighters -- especially the Des Moines Fire Department.
