Tips To Surviving NSD Weekend

** scroll down to the next post for the ScrapMatters blog train stop! **

Hey there!! Just popping in to give you some tips to surviving NSD weekend!!



* Try, try again! If the SM shop isn't loading, or you get errors, or white blank pages, just keep trying. Hit refresh. Our server people are trying to fix it, but this happens EVERY time we have a big sale like this. Just try to remain calm and patient.

* Try off hours. In the middle of the night you might have more luck in the shop!

* Wait to download. If you can wait 'til Monday or Tuesday to download your purchases, you'll not only get faster download speeds, you'll also free up the site for someone else to shop!

* Remain calm. SM always takes care of our customers. If you have a problem I can almost guarantee you that SM will do right by you and fix whatever needs to be fixed just as quickly as humanly possible. So just stay calm and try not to get too annoyed with our limping site!!!!

Believe me, I wish I could magically make our site not lag when our traffic peaks like this. We're doing our very best!!

Thanks for hanging in there and trying to get those Britt-ish Designs purchases made!!!!

As a special thank you - here is a little gifty for everyone!!!!!

I have Mickey on the brain (but what's new?) because I'm going to be in Disneyland in 6 days!!!!! WOO HOO! Just a short little weekend trip, but it will be a much needed break and reward for surviving this crazy weekend!

Hope everyone enjoys the freebie and has a WONDERFUL NSD weekend! Don't forget to pick up my grab bag!!!

  2. Thanks so much! It's awesome! Since I got married 5 years ago, I've been trying to convince my husband to go to Disneyland and he's finally agreed to 2012 when our kids will be old enough to remember a thing or two. HOORAY!!! The submarine ride there is the very first memory I have of my life so Disneyland holds a special place for me. I will definitely be stocking up on your kits in preparation. I haven't had any luck the past two days getting into your shop and I'm supposed to go into labor any minute now but I'll just keep trying and hoping. Thanks for everything you do! LOVE your designs!!

  10. Love the fabulous word art, thank you so much for sharing! Great tips on the site problems. I was shopping at 3:30 am and no crowds!! I did miss bingo this morning (unable to get to the gallery to upload my card) but was able to get on the team blog long enough to copy the blog train list before the page disappeared! I've been riding the blog train and reading some wonderful stories and snagging some great freebies! Definitely stress free!! Many thanks to you and everyone at SM.
