New house, New designer

I am very happy to say that my friend Kathy in Michigan who owns The Scrapbook Store dot net found a new house. After 14 years of living with flooding that would last for days into weeks sometimes, she says “her husband” bought her a new house. I get a kick out of that. But I am happy for her. Plus she will carry more crafting goodies now that she will have a dedicated area.

I am also happy to announce we have a new designer at Digitals. Her name is Kjerstin and has already begun uploading to her store. So if you have a minute, stop by and check out her designs. Here is the link for Digitals.

I completed more challenges than ever at Digitals this month. There was one I had signed up for that I did not complete but I wasn’t too excited about it anyway. Don’t forget to check out the new posts on my Crafts page.

I need sometime to make some smashing layouts for my newest designer Nicecrane. If you click on his name you will get to his blog. He has freebies available once a week I believe. His creations are out of the ordinary, but then who wants to be ordinary? Not me.

Ok, time for Jay or David.

Home again, home again, jiggety jog …

I am in such a state I don’t know a word for it. I know I am physically and mentally exhausted. The drive home wasn’t as bad as usual. Ayiana and I had a wonderful time together on Saturday. She even made oatmeal and toast for dinner for us, and it was very good! She is such a darling. She fell asleep today while we were meeting. lol with her coat over her face. Got a new picture too. I’ll get it posted soon. Soon as I find my camera.

I’m trying to catch up on emails. I’m about 3 days behind so I’m not sure I’ll make it completely today. I am excited to announce that I have been invited to, and accepted joining Nicecrane ~ a Designer on Digitalscrapbookpages.com ~ his Creative Team. I can’t wait to work with his exceptional, original products. Be sure to check out my Crafts blog to see what has been posted recently. I should have some layouts using products by Nicecrane up this week. If you want to see some of his products now, here is a link: Nicecrane Designs.

A few weeks ago, no CT, now 3 CT. I’m full. lol

Off to ….

Man did I pay …


I am not used to staying up so late! Combine that with a bit of fibro and arthritis and you’re in trouble. Ugh. I’m changing up the routine for the rest of this week and we will start over next. It’s all good, as they say.

In the meantime I finally completed a really cute layout for Paula, called Artistic Chocolate. Really a cute name, eh? The kit is named Artistic and is at Digitals. lol Leave a comment if you have a minute. I love to get feedback, always working to improve.

Okay, bedtime for me. Hope you got to bed at a decent hour.

night …

I almost forgot ….

that I even had a blog. I’ve been busy with quite a few different projects, but they are all moving ahead. Life keeps improving in many ways. I can’t mention most of them right now due to potentially peeping eyes, but I will share one day.

I am excited that I finally found the photos I needed for my dear friend Diane’s 6yo dd’s birthday present that was due like 2 months ago. bad .. bad! But it’s going to be so cool, a Bratz shadow box to match her room. She is actually a sophisticated little one (hard to believe at that age, but true) so she will truly appreciate it. I can’t wait to get it done. I’m thinking that will be one project for this weekend.

Another one is the challenges at Digital Scrapbook Pages. I’m starting to get smoother at creating pages so I signed up for a bunch of them this month. If you create 12 of the 19 or so challenges, you earn a huge mega kit. There’s a different kit each month and they are all really well made. Quality control at Digitals is really sharp. (I didn’t know such a thing existed in scrapbooking until I learned about how much is done at Digitals.) Here’s the link in case you want to check out the challenges. Digitals Forums Scroll down to the challenges category and check them out! They have been a great way for me to practice and learn digi. And it’s encouraging because you get a prize of a mini kit or something like it for posting the challenge.

And check out the new blog roll down the sidebar. It’s all the Digitals Designers blogs. Most are updated frequently, many daily, and many have freebies. So go surfing, dudettes!

Ayiana starts 4th grade on Monday. Hard to believe. She is growing up, and I finally know what that really means, maturing. Not only is she taller, she thinks differently, has different needs and interests. But she is still a barrell of fun! Nothing better than a good tickle fight between us. LOL Okay, well maybe a good hug is a bit better. Anyway, dinner time. I’ll try and check in more often. Maybe I’ll have some layouts to post this weekend.
