Freebie Time!

Hello friends and fans,

Hope you had an awesome week.  I had a mixed week.  My little Minnie became very sickly last Sunday night and I had her in the doctor's office when it opened Monday morning. Her stomach was messed up or she had an intestinal blockage but the doctor didn't think it was as serious as I feared.  He gave her fluids and he prescribed close attention to her intake of food and water plus a course of antibiotics. She began feeling better almost immediately after receiving the antibiotics. Minnie has had problems with her stomach since I've known her (4 months) and though I asked the doctor for an opinion on her first checkup, he saw no reason for my concern, he said bad breath and gas are 'part of being a dog.'  I have tried several things but none seemed to help her feel better; this seems to have been cured with the meds! I can hardly believe the change in her and I am really happy she feels so good now. So getting her to the doctor took care of what has been happening with her for a long time, not just this latest malady.

The other vexing thing has been my intermittent Internet. It is very frustrating to know I have messages and work that needs to be taken care of and I cannot rely on my connection. Grrrrr . . . hopefully it is all better now!

This week's blog and newsletter gifts are pretty paper posies. I hope you like them :)

This is the posey that will be in the newsletter on Monday.

Thanks for coming by!

Sunday gift and the Loyalty Lottery!

Hello friends!  How are you doing this week? I hope you have been happy and productive.  I have had a productive week which makes me feel better about myself then I remember why it was so productive (I closed down my communications) and feel bad about myself again.  Sometimes I just cannot communicate with folks.  It will come over me so quickly that I am not even aware of what brings it on. I am hoping this coming week will be better and that my friends will forgive me for not chatting with them.

I've made a few new products this week and I have also been working on organizing my stores.  Needed to do some spring cleaning and pull some of the older products off the shelves and move other products to the commercial use only stores. It can get quite confusing if you don't keep a running tally of what you have been doing. If you would like to see what I have made this week just check out the tabs above for the closeups.

Hope you have subscribed to my newsletter. Tomorrow is the Loyalty Lottery drawing. You may choose one product that is currently available in any of my stores if you are the lucky winner!

As the first Sunday in April is upon us that means your blog gift for today is next month's calendar.  If you have subscribed to my newsletter, then you can get June's calendar tomorrow!  If you haven't kept up with the months or you want to have them all at once you can visit any of my personal use stores and purchase the year's worth of calendars.  Here is today's gift (just click the link under the preview for yours):

This is the preview of June's calendar:

Thanks for coming by and come back soon!

Sunday is here and that means my blog gift is ready for you!  But first I want to show you a couple of things I worked on this week.

I made a small contribution to a fellow designer who lost her brand new husband to cancer this week.  The collaboration will be huge and will be for sale soon at My Memories, Raining Digitals, and at least one more store. Please consider purchasing the collab, all proceeds will go toward the final arrangements for the deceased. The name of the collaboration is My 2 Dogs. Here is the part I made:

I finally did a wee bit of work on the Create-A-Kit for April at Digi Style Designs.  I designed some papers out of tiles that were made from some photos that Richard Allport took of their garden! I think they turned out really bright and cheery:

I made some Easter tags for you as this week's blog and newsletter gifts.  This is the newsletter gift:

I hope you enjoy the gift! Thanks for coming by.

A little Clip of the Minx!


This is Minnie reacting to birds, geese, and squirrels in her yard! She has to find something to bite on to vent her frustrations!

Sunday Freebie Time!

Hello friends! How have you been this week? Wonderfully content and healthy I hope :)

We have been having beautiful weather down here in the deep south of the US.  Minnie has had a lovely time basking in the sun and watching the birds, geese, ducks, and squirrels getting ready for spring! I have been working on a few different items this week, mostly commercial use. I did make an add-on for Summer Afternoon of two multi-layered page borders.

I thought you might like to have one of my commercial use products so I am giving one away but only for two days because I need to put it in my shop at Raining Digitals by Tuesday, so be sure and grab it while you can!

Please come and visit my personal use and commercial use stores.  If you have purchased any of my products it would be awfully nice of you to leave a comment in the store you purchased it from.  Thanks!

Sunday Freebie and New Add-on!

Hello! Boy this week went by really slowly on Monday Tuesday and Wednesday but the rest just flew by.  I wore myself out in the beginning of the week by cleaning my living room carpet; did too much at one time. Lesson learned: do not try and be super woman now that you are old as dirt! LOL!

I released an add-on for my Summer Afternoon kit this week and I am also working on some add-on borders. Here is the preview of the page spray add-on:

Today's blog gift coordinates with the Summer Afternoon kit and so does this week's newsletter gift. Just click on the link below the preview to download your gift.

I'm back . . . !

Hello y'all!  Well, I had a very interesting couple of months off, did you miss me at all? LOL!  Supposed to have relaxed and have a leisurely vacation but of course with my luck I chose February to go down (hard) with my back. I should count myself lucky though because at least I didn't have to sit at the PC working for hours at a time but I really really missed Photoshop!

We had a blizzard like snow, over 16 inches, in February so it was quite interesting to see Minnie and I go out for her potty breaks and try and not break our necks! Minnie is 8 inches tall at the shoulder so I had to keep her close up against the house so I wouldn't lose sight of her in the snow!

One of the things I did during my break was join a new digital store, Raining Digitals.  It is an awesome place to work and I love all the folks associated with Raining Digitals! I have previews of my new products under the 'Newest Kit Previews' tab above. Please come by and give us a look, register for our newsletter, and watch out for the RAK's (Random Acts of Kindness) and FWP's (Free with Purchase)!

This week's blog gift is the calendar for March, the April calendar is in this week's newsletter:
Thanks for dropping by, I hope you enjoy the calendar gift and that you have a wonderful productive week!

Christmas Feelings Everyday?

Wouldn't it be nice if Christians treated everyday like they do Christmas? We are all wandering around wishing everyone a merry day and peace on earth, goodwill toward men. I think it would be wonderful, to care and love each other in that way and maybe it would even spill over onto other religion's worshipers and to animals too. What a wonderful world it would be! No matter your religious affiliation or lack thereof, I hope you have had an awesome love and joy filled week!

This week's blog gift is a calendar for the month of January 2014; this week's newsletter gift will be a calendar for the month of February 2014. I will be adding the rest of 2014's calendar pages as the year progresses but if you don't want to wait, I plan on putting the set into my stores soon.

Just a reminder:  I am taking a break for January and February so there will not be any more Sunday freebies until March. The newsletter will go out next week and the first week of February so we will still have the Loyalty Lottery.

Click on the link below the preview to get January's calendar page.
