It's the First of October and That Can Only Mean ...

... two things:

It's American Pharmacist Month!


it's kit release day over @ JBSMercantile.com!

I won't get into the politics of affordable health care or how my profession has changed over the almost 30 years I've been practicing, but I will say how very proud I am to be a pharmacist!  My dh is a pharmacist too, which leads to very interesting dinner conversation for sure.  To celebrate October I'm doing a little vintage pharmacy giveaway that paper crafters might just like too!  So don't forget to read to the end for the little giveaway!

Now onto kit release day at JBSMercantile ... Oh what a beautiful month October is!

Gorgeous colors, the coolest stencil and stamp, beautiful papers by Lisa Dickinson, a gorgeous featured paper line and embellishments by Basic Grey, old pharmacy labels! and so much more ...

There's so much to love this month because Jenni  designed the Project Kit herself, and also designed beautiful Limited Edition kits for Halloween.  Oh that girl.  Everything she does is golden.  

There is SO MUCH to check out this month:  NEW kits, Limited Edition Kits, PAST KITS at a super special price, and an awesome flea market!

So cool, isn't it?

And now for the teeny giveaway.  Dh and I absolutely love vintage pharmacy memorabilia and we've saved many old labels from the beginnings of the retail store he now owns.

So I'd like to send to someone a little collection of the pharmacy labels we have.  I'm sure a paper crafter will find use of them!

To be entered to win, just leave a comment telling me what you like best about October.  Don't forget to leave your email if I can't get it from your own blog link.  I'll be pulling a name Friday 9am ET.

Have a creative day and hug a pharmacist this month!


  1. Love how your page turned out, Betsy! The pie chart is super. I think I will not only hug our pharmacists, but maybe bring them a little treat too. :) Apple picking is my favorite part of October (fall). :)

  2. Oh wow..I love those labels. Oh My...what I love about October?? Just about everything! First it is my birthday month, I love the fall color (in TN~so beautiful color here), love the change of the season, the crisp air, all the fall festivals, the corn mazes, Halloween decorating, pumpkin pie latte, Pink Ribbon Month at Panera, wearing long sleeves...I just love it all. My most favorite time of the year. I get all giddy and excited at the thought of October and Fall... Love your page too Betsy. You never disappoint. I love your style.
