Freebies, Freebies, Freebies!! (Again!)

I was having so much fun playing & learning with my new Wacom table, I created some doodle freebies. If you're a member of my Yahoo Group, you've probably grabbed the first batch by now, (and if you're not a member, sign up at my website to get the first batch) now here is your chance to grab the second batch. Six fun doodles in PNG form for all graphics programs. There is a small catch, though ~ I've uploaded the file to YouSendIt, which only allows 50 downloads, so hurry & get them before they're gone! Here is a peek ~

Gag Gifts

Ever get a gag gift, (& not the kind that make you want to throw up!) and just laugh about it for ages? I did. I've been without a car for the last 4 1/2 yrs and it bacame a family joke. I never really needed one. I was a SAHM and literaly everything is in walking distance ~ the girls schools, grocery store, bank, pet store, several fast food places, even a Circle K. So last year Mom bought me the "perfect car" and I finally got around to scrapping it.
Take a look ~ whatcha think?

Doodle bracket by me. Fonts ~ 2 Peas Hot Chocolate, AL Cleanliness, Blackout, 2 Peas Gimme Coffee, Pea Jane, Stamp Act Jumbled.

We still laugh about it even though I now have a car! We also laugh about my sister Janice's "Grow Your Own Boyfriend" mostly because she still doesn't have a real one!!

A quick LO of Savannah from the other day. She was doing handstands in the front yard & begged me to takes pictures. She was having so much fun even when she didn't quite get the handstand!

New Stuff

Since all my paper packs are hostages in my hard drive gone bad, I've been on a frenzie to get new ones made. I managed to get 3 new pack made up this weekend which will be in the Emporium this Sunday. Check them out ~

And here's a layout I did using Olive Juice ~

I received a very interesting comment to my last post. Apparently someone out there (who is too afraid to leave a name 'cause they signed in anonymously!) felt I was whining & preaching (???) about dishonest people and piracy. Here is the direct comment ~

"Oh please stop whining! This sort of thing happens and always will!! Those who realize human nature don't give up and continue whatever it is so others can still benefit. So please stop preaching and whining, it won't change anything."

I think someone out there in cyber-land needs the reality check! I was never whining OR preaching about what has been happening. Just venting my frustrations & letting those who enjoy my work know what's been going on & why the changes. And I'm a firm believer that if enough of us stand up & let our voices be heard, we CAN change things. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, or even next month, but eventually we will change it. I just laughed at this. I never said I'm giving up either. (I even posted to check back here for future freebies. Not what I'd call giving up!). Makes me think this person is one of the pirates, giving designers creations out to all in every & any Yahoo group she can get into that'll allow it, hence the lack of a name attached to the comment. Who ever it was, I guess I should thank them for a good laugh for the day!!
You all have a wonderful weekend. I'm off to treasure hunt over at the Digi Chick. (Hopefully they're back up!!)

Last Chance

This week will be your last chance to get my freebies; Left Shoe, Bubba & Shugga, and Yoga Mat. After this Friday (5/12), they will no longer be available. I'm planning on another one soon, so stay tuned, and check back here because I may not advertise. And a big thank you goes out to all of you who were so supportive and sent encouraging words while I went through the whole ordeal of Pirates stealing my stuff and hard drives holding the rest hostage. It's been one crazy month!! Think how boring our lives would be without craziness!! You all have a wonderful day. TTFN....

New Kit & Layouts

OK. For those who have been patiently waiting; here is a preview of the entire new kit ~ "Moxie" ~ which will be in the Emporium this Monday...

I also included a free Qwick Stik!

And, I got 2 layouts done! Last weekend my SIL had a garage sale & my MIL came down from Las Vegas to visit & sell some of her stuff. After the sale she took us all out to lunch at Del Taco. She said the older kids (my neice, who is 14 & my nephew, who is 12) did not behave well enough at the sale to deserve a lunch at a nicer restaurant, so Del Taco it was! While the adults were finishing up their meal, the kids took the cameras and started taking candid shots of each other (and a few "butt" shots, which are actually the crook of someone's arm!). Some were REALLY bad, some were pretty good. Like the 2 I scrapped today. Check 'em out ~

They both hate these pics of themselves, but I think it's nice to get one where they haven't posed & shows a little more of who they are everyday. Well, that's it for now. I'm off to scrap some more!!

Freebies, Freebies, Freebies!!

These freebies are no longer available. Check back later for a new one. Thanks.

I've had so many requests for the past freebies ~ Left Shoe, Bubba & Shugga, & Yoga Mat ~ that I've decided to bring them back. But there is a catch. Anyone who reads this Blog, & would like one, two, or all three just have to do one simple thing ~ Ask for them!! Send me an email with "I Want the Freebies" in the subject line & I will send you the download link(s). {Please remember to tell me what freebie(s) you would like.} And just incase you forgot what they were (or didn't get the chance to see them before the Pirats hit) here are previews ~

Also, my 40% off sale will be ending this weekend, so if there is a kit you've been eyeing, better grab it now the bargan price! And here's a teaser of my newest kit, coming soon to the Emporium ~
