It is so cold & windy today!! My nose & toes have been cold all day & I'm now going to bundle up with a good book & bowl of popcorn! LOL
Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. We went to my Mom's with my 2 sisters & had a blast. It has become tradition whenever we get together to play Uno, & yesterday was the first time hubby played. We always end up in a fit of laughter & by the time we recover, we forget what started it off!! And the girls {ages 10, 12 & 15} love to play as much as we adults do. I think they like watching Mom & Aunties get silly {and there is NO alcohol involved!!!} more than playing the game!! LOL
Anyway, wanted to let everyone know I've uploaded 2 new kits to the store {click previews to be taken directly to the store} ~

Oh! It would be nice to let you know ~ all full size kits, including the 2 new ones, are 50% off until January 4th!!

What The Heck Happened???

I am so sorry Folks it seems like I dropped off the face of the earth. Some unexpected events just happened all at the worst possible moment & all at the same time. It is too long to get into, & quite frankly, a bit depressing.
Needless to say, I still want you to all have the 12 Days of Christmas download, so sit back, relax & start downloading!! I will leave the links up for the next couple of weeks & re-activate the first 3 as well. And just as before, click each gift box for the download. Hope you all have the Merriest of Holidays & a Prosperous New Year!! Enjoy!! :)

Look What I Found.....

I was going through some very old CDs looking for a box template to hold some small gifts; I found it & thought it would be nice to give you all a little gift. Box, that is! LOL I used some of the Holly Noel papers to make it.

Now it feels more like the Holidays around here. LOL

A Quickie

A quick note before I run out to get the next kid after school! {One down, 2 to go!!} For the past 2 years I've done a 12 days of Christmas give-a-way. And this year is no different!! Starting this Friday and going until Dec. 24th, I will post a new gift each day for download. And in the end, you will have a full kit!! But this year I'm making it a true gift giving & not posting a preview of the whole kit. SURPRISE!!! Instead you get just a little teaser of what it will be!! So here it is, & be sure to check back on Friday for the 1st download.....

I've been messing with my Blog today trying to change things around. I thought a winter or Holiday theme might be a nice change. So much for that idea! LOL
I wanted to add a background image & couldn't remember how to do it. {Yes, it's been that long since I've changed my Blog!} I wanted to have the background stationary & the text scroll {Like Brenda Smith's Blog. I love how this looks!} So I did a Google search for a tut. I found a great one, but for some reason, the background image was not showing up. I tried several different combos of code that I thought might work ~ & nothing. Then I thought maybe my image is too big. But what size do I make it? I had no idea. I know it can't be that difficult, I've built websites for goodness sake. But today Blogger has beaten me down! LOL
So, since the girls are begging me to feed them {darn those kids needing to be fed!! LOL} and I've lost patience w/ it, I quit for the night. Maybe I'll try again tomorrow. Maybe.
PS ~ if anyone knows how to do this, I'd love to hear your tips ;)

Lucky Day!

Phew! I finally got the website back up & running. YEAH!!! I wanted to completely change it, but just not sure exactly what direction I wanted to go in. So for now, it's pretty much the same.
I spent the weekend hacking & caughing with a sore throat, & thankfully I feel better today & think I'm getting over it. Probably sleeping through pretty much the entire weekend helped!!
On a happy note, I found some more goodies for ya all on my little ol' harddrive! A retro style paper pack of holiday colors. Just in time for Holiday greeting cards, gift tags & layouts!!

Something for the Masses!

The remodeling of my website is taking longer than I thought!! But then, don't all remodels take longer, cost more money & run into a series of delays?? LOL Between redoing the site, getting my sister's site up & running (she sells handmade jewelry, look for a link here soon) and trying to get some new items made for the store, the days just fly by. Especially those when I have to stop "early" to get a kid here, take a kid there, pick up another from wherever, then the rest of the day is shot.
The good news for those of you who read this is as I'm remodeling & cleaning, I found some more goodies!! (If you haven't grabbed my Chill Factor Kit yet, you better hurry, the link will expire on Friday). Here are some pastel gingham messy ribbons for you to play with. Enjoy!!
