Dec DSO CC Mini Freebie

Howdy Folks;

I finally woke up, boys gone, dog gone, the entire house to myself, ah, it feels so good.
I had some breakie listening to Christmas Jazz, soothing. I've been hooked to 94.7 lately :)

I finally got my butt off the sofa and got to work on getting you this mini. I hope you can use something in it.
Here is what's inside...
5 textured papers ( two brick, 3 cloth), 6 square striped textured frames, 7 round textured glass frames, 6 glass beads, 6 textured and bling snowflakes, 6 bows, 5 wire deco lines, 5 twigs, 4 glass border journal buttons, 2 textured tree masks/overlays, 2 flowers, 1 bling star, 1 textured star, 1 textured tree, 1 textured tree and star vertical border, 1 textured poinsettia, 1 deer, 1 ceramic snowman, 1 cluster, 1 metal paper clip
These are on the small side = 12 Xmas stamps, 12 Xmas ball ornaments

The papers

The ellies

And now the links








Total = 153.2 mb

Now I am going back to enjoy my peaceful jazz filled home relaxing and doing absolutely nothing for the rest of the day.

We wish you all the very best for the holidays.
Much love &

Time to Relax

Howdy Folks;

How have you all been? Are you all prepped for the big day? This year went by so fast. Isn't that always the way when you are busier then a bee in summertime. Whew, it's time to relax. I so need to do that LOL. When Mum said she wanted to have the dinner at her house this year I was overjoyed. Thou I love company, and we'll have plenty of that over the break, I really wasn't looking forward to cooking for everyone on the big day. To be honest I am burnt out and need 3 days of good uninterrupted sleep which I will be doing starting Monday.
We did get to put the tree up and I have a few photos of some of my favorites to show you. First let me say that the only thing I actually help with is the beads, the boys do all the rest. I have to say they have great imaginations too because the way they put it all together has stories behind every placement.

This one is the musical tale of the wise man and the big fish he caught. (the Wise man, the violin and the fisherman)

In this one the Angel watches over the babies while they sleep.

This is Joe's new ornament for 2010. He's an avid Campbell Soup Ornament Collector.

Joe got this Santa ornament when he was a kid from his Mum. Behind it is his Lou Gehrig ornament he got from my Mum on our first Xmas in our new home. Above it my Norman Rockwell ornament I got in 1994. I've taken this photo off the angle of the story. Sorry boys LOL

And this one is my Christmas card for 2010. This ornament is from a set I got from my Mum. They were always on our tree when I was a kid and she knew I loved them so she gave them to me.
You may have noticed that we don't put up a real tree. Ours is a fake one. And a heck of a lot easier to put away without a mess.
We had a real tree once but the mess, the watering, Joe sneezing all the time, it was to much so we just bought a nice size fake one our second Xmas and it's been faithful to us ever since. And no stickies :)

Over the last few weeks, while Tyler has been getting changed either to play or finish playing hockey Ive been hiding in the eatery with my laptop making Christmas goodies for you. I must say that the mothers of the team kept at me, being inquisitive, showing them what I was doing, how I did that, you know, being nice but really pestering me because I wanted to get it done while I had the free time LOL It took me longer and by no means did I come near to finishing what I wanted to put into it which seems to be the way these days. But I will get it out to you all before the weekend is over. That's a promise.

It's been a very long day for me so I am going to catch a few z's and get started on your gift after breakfast. Drop in later tonight, k.

Enjoy your day &

Oh The Sales

Howdy Cyber folks;

Happy Belated Thanksgiving, Cousins!
And look at all those SALES!
Best get on them a.s.a.p. cause they will be gone on Tuesday.

Yesterday was quite the treat for me. 7 am my aunt arrived and we went digi shopping till noon and ended up spending around 60 bucks. 45 kits in total. Now the fun begins in downloading them all. One store totally crashed and we couldn't get the downloads. I think that is the worst part of all the Black Friday sales. 10 of the kits will have to be downloaded during the week. We got all the rest thou so look out for some quick pages from me during December.

I am so jealous. Yesterday we got about a half hour of snow flakes that didn't even leave a mark. I want snow, snow, snow. My gfs in Utah, New Mexico, and several more states in the USA, got plenty to brag about. The New Mexico snow fall brought tears to my eyes. Here I live in the Great White North and they got snow before we did. Talk about a climate change. I was telling Joe we should move further north cause they got snow already but I don't think he's willing to do that for snow. LOL

Today I am relaxing, I so need it. Until 3 pm at least. Tyler has a game at 4 pm. My sister and brother will be coming around tomorrow to do our Christmas draw and then we will be heading out to 5 malls to pick names from the trees.
We'll be doing Christmas a bit different this year. We might not put up a tree at all. We usually put ours up on the 1st weekend in December but we won't be here. Tyler has a hockey tournament and we will be in St. Catherin's all weekend. The next weekend we have a wedding to go to out in Alberta and the following weekend we are going to New Brunswick. And Joe is trying to talk me into traveling somewhere exotic for the remainder of the month, which he has off. Add to this that I am involved in helping to set up the Christmas concert, the Christmas play, and 4 Christmas parties and you can understand why I so need some one to split me in three. LOL

So how will I be relaxing this morning? I going to make some quick pages, of course. Maybe I'll have one or two for you tonight.

Oh, yes, I am still boycotting 4 shared. They totally suck big time.

Have a snow-rific day.

Edit: 10:28 am

I got my's snowing, and it's staying, yehaw, yehaw, YEHAW!

Just a few Photos

Howdy Folks;

It's almost time for me to crash, as Tyler puts it these days LOL, so I thought I would share just a few pics with you. I am still transferring and organizing them, what a job when there are so many to do with such little time but here goes, in numerical order...

the pumpkin patch...

Joe's favorite apples

Tyler's favorite apples and mine

thanksgiving turkey

leaves on my tree

awesome sunrise

Joe's New CR-V at the side of our house

Frost Everywhere & Lady loving it

Well that's it from me...until we meet again

Enjoy your day

Happy iNSD - Freebie

Happy International Scrap Booking Day Scrappers!

I didn't forget about you. I took some time out yesterday and today to get you a bit of stuff. It's not much and I am just about ready to go out for another hockey game at 3 pm so I couldn't add much more. Tomorrow I won't be around at all so I think it best to just give you what I've got and be glad with myself that I was able to squeeze some time in. Anyone figure out how to split me in three yet? LOL
No comments are required unless there is an issue cause I know there is just way too much stuff to download and do on this busy weekend. You can use the shout box as its way easier.
I used this months DSO Colors. Included are 5 papers, 2 different types of frames, 2 journal tags, a tree, 2 flowers, 2 leaves.
Okay, the preview and below it the links.

right click the links and open in new tab, it's way easier too.

Have a fab weekend.

Can some one split me in three, please

Howdy Folks,

Yes I have been MIA for quite a bit here on the blog. Time just doesn't slow down long enough for me to finish what I start LOL.
In the am, I am able to sit for an hour, if I am lucky, before I have to get going, this leaves me just enough time to pop in and visit some online buds, maybe a forum, and poof, the time is gone. In the afternoon I am lucky to get in an another hour and poof, it's gone again. But the time I finish my day I am beat. But today I took a short nap, 47 minutes, woo who, in the afternoon just so I could post this evening, still I am pooped and will be heading off to dream land as soon as I am done, yawning away as I type.

I know I have missed so much here in scrap land but I have been trying my best to at least stay in touch with some of you most of the time. Let's just say Google's Reader is probably over the top, I am terrified to open it and see all those posts.

I haven't had any time to scrap or make anything, there just isn't any free time to spare.

Kristine, I live in Oakville, Ontario, not to far from Kitchener, LOL ( i hope its the wench who left the message) will I come and visit? maybe at the end of spring if Tyler doesn't play ball this year.
Can you split me in three cause i wanna go up to see Pam up in Barrie too.

Oh when was it, early October I think, we went up to the orchard and spent the day picking apples, spent the next two days making 40 pies, what a nightmare, my hands ached for weeks peeling those apples. No I don't have a magic peeler to do it for me, but I am thinking about it, trust me.

This weekend Joe is off, man the guy works way too much, and this leaves me lugging the boys around everywhere. don't even talk to me about snow, I don't wanna see any. I've seen enough. Can some one buy me a ticket to the Bahamas, I so need some sunshine and a beach with some gorgeous blue tropical waters. Nah, forget it, I would probably sleep the time away and miss the beauty anyway.

Last Friday he got a new Honda Cr V and he won't let me drive it. He also got promoted, the snob, he's now a boss. Really, I am so proud of him.

Tyler has a garbage bin full of Hallowe'en crap, yeah it's crap to me. I am an icing girl and that's about as far as I go in the sugar department. That should last him till next year. He dressed up as, of all things, a hockey jock LOL Oh, he's a hockey jock alright, every game scoring goals, even teaching some of the new kids some of his fancy tricks. He cracks me up.

Don't even talk to me about pictures, I have so many I don't know where to begin. I can't promise I'll post any cause who knows when I will be able to post again. Please, split me in three so I can have some me time, pretty please, I'll pay you.

Well I have to go before I crack my chin off the table, I can't stop yawning. 6 am is just way to early for me.

Gotta go
Huggins to you all

October DSO CC - Freebie

Howdy Peeps;

How are you all? Has the cold/flu virus finished in your household yet? LOL I laugh because its so predictable isn't it. I swear if the boys didn't get it from work and school we'd all be viral free. I always get sick from Joe. Joe just has to kiss me before leaving for work. dang.

Autumn is my second favorite season, spring being my first. I'm guessing most people love the change in leaf color which can be seen for miles standing on a hilltop. We have some amazing scenic hilltops here in Ontario and if you go north, wow, totally awesome. We are heading up north next weekend to winterize the cottage and definitely taking pictures.

How was your Thanksgiving weekend? Tasty? Lip smacking good? Joe bought a Presidents Choice turkey this year with all the fixing already done. Stuffed and buttered. I was so looking forward to our yearly roast but what the hey. Yes, I know it's turkey time, but I like to steer away from BIRD in cold and flu season, call me silly. So since I made the bird we've have turkey dinners, turkey stews and stuffing up to our eye balls. I swear if he brings home a BIRD for Christmas I'll cook it until it's burnt then we'll have to go out for dinner LOL. Turkeys are so big and with most of our family sick and staying home I am left with massive amounts of turkey to dish out in a million different ways. Even Lady is sick of it. LOL
But anyway I am babbling on and on when I should be getting to the point of this post...Kim B's DSO Color Challenge.
As you know I don't have a lot of time on my hands these days but when I could I sat for a bit and tried to think up something to do with these colors. All I got was papers so far. See I am not even doing it right this month. Usually I like to make a layout with a photo and go from there but I am in Autumn mode and these colors just didn't speak Autumn to me while all my photos do LOL. But there I go again, babbling. So I'll get to it cause time is creeping up and we have a hockey game at 7 pm to attend which means we leave at 6 pm.
If you would like these papers you can get them here, here and here.

Thanks for stopping by and reading my post today. If you have any problems with the downloads Shout at me in the Shout box. It's way easier then commenting. K
Enjoy your downloads and your day.

Good Evening, Folks;

When the kids are away, Mom will play, LOL, and that's what I did today.

And you can create your own quick pages to as I've included each piece separately, (flower, frame and paper) and a bonus paper too. All made with Kim B's DSO September Swatch.

Enjoy and Have a funtastic day.

Sept DSO CC - Freebie

Howdy Folks;

Is it cold where you are? Up here in Southern Ontario it's like the end of fall. We had to put the heat on a few days ago and last night was freezing outside. I swear the seasons are all messed up. We had the least amount of rain for summer this year and the end of Autumn came in before the end of summer went out. The butterflies are confused. They need the warm Mexican wind to take flight and it's no where to be found. Mexico is flooded with rain and there's not one but 2 hurricanes playing in the gulf.

Yesterday I went shopping for some winter boots with my girlfriend and as we wandered around the stores looking at things we noticed 95% of the stuff was made in China. I can't even find a pair of underwear that isn't made in China. Where the heck does the things Made in Canada go? Doesn't Canadians make anything anymore or does the entire planet get there stuff from China? That really freaks me out. No offense to China but I still haven't gotten over the wheat gluten pesticide that killed a lot of pets or the embalming fluid found in Victoria Secret bras or the lead found in the paint on children's toys, all coming from China. Or the milk that killed lots of Chinese children made in their own country.
I didn't get the boots so tomorrow I will try some other stores like Mark's Work Warehouse. Maybe I can find some boots that actually keep my feet warm cause that thinsulate stuff sucks big time. Last year I had to wear those thick wool work socks over my regular socks in ski do boots, of all things.

Anyways, I am going to be pretty busy over the next several weeks with Thanksgiving coming up and then Hollow's Eve and we still have to get the cottage set up for winter. Stages have to be made, painted and set up, rehearsals, parties, dinners, etc. so I am booked solid. And Tyler decided he wants to play hockey this year so my weekends and nights are gone too.

I was able to get a few papers done and some round frames for September's DSO CC but that's all I will be able to get done for this month. I won't have any time available in October so it's best that I get what I've made out to you now before I get so wrapped up in things that I forget to even get them to you at all. I so wanted to make something to do with wine and grapes cause that's what these colors told me they were but time just wasn't on my side :) So enough of my blabbing. Here is the preview and below it the links.

When I can, if I can, I'll pop in. However before I go to bed for the next few days I'll check in to make sure you all are not having any issues in downloading.

Enjoy and have a funtastic Autumn.
Huggins to you all.

Pamela McNicol Is BACK

Howdy Folks;

I had the best surprise this evening when I opened reader and saw a post I had been waiting for for so long. I scrolled right on down to read the post by the infamous Pamela McNicol.
You may recall Pamela took a much needed break way back in April 2009 to take care of her family. Well she is making a comeback and I can't wait....I am so thrilled. I missed her and prayed for her and her family every day.
Today she posted a picture of her 3 children heading off to school and they look so loved and incredibly happy. The break was so worth it for all of them.

Please head on over and give Pamela a big warm welcome back. You are going to love her designs. I know I do.

We're Back

Well Hello Everyone;

Has it been ages or what LOL

What a busy 1st week back to school. PTA meetings, Library Meetings, Social Meetings, well you get the picture. But today is Saturday and I can finally sit down and catch up. I opened reader first thing when I finally got online and man, over 5000 posts to read, NOT. Sorry girls and guys but I just hit the Read All button. I couldn't possible handle it. I opened my email and wow, there are over 200 emails in there.
I know I missed a lot in digiland but I had a fantastic summer. How about you?
I really missed you peeps personally and I thought about you quite often. I talked about you all quiet often too. Some of the girls and I went to a few country sales. These are like Garage sales but when in the country we go from farm to farm not house to house LOL.
More times then I can count I would spy something and think of one or many of you. So even though I wasn't online with you you sure were spending your summer with me.

This morning was the first time I turned on the computer too and I had several updates to do first. After that I went to look in my folder to see where I left off and there was sitting a layout I was suppose to get up before I left. I must have blanked it out or thought I did it but either way there it sat. Poor Loucee must think I forgot all about her and her challenge. Well I did didn't I. And I forgot to let Kim know I posted that little gift using the August CC. So I've done that now too. The Cars were right. Summer turns me upside down. It's my excuse and I'm sticking to it :)
Here is the layout I did for Loucee's Animal Challenge over at DSO...

Give me a few days to catch up on all the past and recent news and I'll get started on some new challenges and free gifts for all. Now where is my mojo bag...umm :)


Edit: Now there goes my brains again leaving me behind. Today is Sept 11 isn't it. Let us pray for the lives lost in 2001. I don't think any of us will forget that day as long as we live.

Saturday, August 07, 2010

I am off

Morning Folks.

I am glad to see there were no issues (well one which I hope has been resolved).

It's just before 6 am here and I am off to the great wide open, Northern Country, that is, in an hour or so. Just waiting on Joe. So I thought I would come on in a babble for a bit.
I'll be back, hopefully by the end of August, but if things should change it will be the 4th of Sept at the latest. Tyler starts back at school on the 7th and I usually have a shindig bbq over the Labor Day Weekend, the last long weekend before everyone is back into high gear till Thanksgiving.
We are having some cool Autumn weather here as I speak. I actually had to wear a hoodie outside last night. The AC hasn't been on since the following night when the winds of change blew in and slammed my bedroom door waking me with a start.
Oh and here's a funny...the other day, when I did the template challenge over at the DSO, I did it on a song that I woke up with and it kept lingering on in my mind...well yesterday I was having some lunch and this commercial comes on the tv and it's got that song playing in it...and I'm like, so that's where I got it from...the darn tv playing while I'm sleeping...and here I am thinking it had some deep meaning LOL. I don't eat hot dogs, that's what the commercial is for.
Any how, I am going to bid you all a fond farewell for now.
Have a wonderful day and month.

Humble Apologizes - Freebie

My Humblest Apologizes to All.

Media Fire Uploaded it, gave me a link for it, and then off the file went disappearing into the great white open. It's the only logical explanation I can give since I did get a link and I saw it there LOL

Thank goodness I was browsing and nosing this afternoon before heading up North for the remainder of the summer tomorrow.

So let's get you those links asap...

I'll post again later, with a gift for everyone for the kindness of letting me know of this malfunction. mwah :)

July DSO CC - Freebie

Howdy again, Folks;

Well it's been a nightmare trying to upload anything to DSO this evening. Connection keeps timing out. 1 hour of attempting this has left me frazzled. I gave up. Maybe tomorrow will be better.

Anyways, I was able to create a little something for the DSO CC this month. Just papers and a little surprise not shown in the preview. With all I have been doing up north these colors just didn't want to play with me this month LOL. Ah, my mojo needs to be kicked up a notch. I don't have much on the laptop to work with either and I just didn't have the time to sit and get into creating things from scratch. It's my excuse and I'm sticking to it :)

So it's like 1:30 ish here and I really need to get my head on the pillow as morning waits not for me to rise. So without further babble here is the preview and below it the links.

Okay folks, hello, I must be going hehehe
I'll chat with you later.
Enjoy your downloads and your day.

DSO Template Challenge

Howdy Folks;

How is your summer coming along? Enjoying and loving every minute of it I hope.
I am in the city for a few days to pay some bills & visit my sister for her birthday. She is not a party type person so no big event to go to. I am just going to take her shopping; she loves doing that :)

I needed to fill in some extra time I had today so I grabbed the template challenge over at DSO that Caryn is hosting this month. It's my first attempt at trying this new challenge so this is how it turned out....

It was fun. I don't usually put so much writing in my layouts and it was the hardest part to think about LOL. I tried to upload it to the gallery this evening but it kept failing on me so I thought it best to post it here. Thanks, Caryn, for a fun challenge.

I've got a little gift for you all too which I will post in a few minutes.

See you then LOL

Some Pages & Quick Page - Freebie

Good Evening, Folks;

It's been a while since I gave you something or shared some of the pages I've created so I thought I would do that this evening.

First lets get the freebie out of the way. This is a quick page I made back in June.

And here are a few of the pages I've made.

This is Grandpa, Big Ray, Grandma & Me (Mom), done in rock drawings by Tyler.

This is the intro page to my 8 x 8 album for 2010.

It's been a long day so I am off to dream land.
Enjoy your download and your day.

Enjoy your day.

DSO Scraplift

Good Evening, or I should say Good Morning LOL. Our friends next door had a party tonight, er last night, and we just got home around 2:30 am. On our way home Joe mentioned something about scrapping and poof it popped in my mind that I had done the DSO Scrap lift that Di had posted and totally forgot to post it up before we went out, dah.
It was my first lift and it was quite fun and filled up the free time I had. So before I doze off, here is my lift of JK Cantwell's original, Pans hanger.

And that's it for me, I am dozing here. Have a great day. mwah to all & thanks Di for a fun time.

June DSO Mini - Freebie

How are you all doing today? It's a gorgeous Friday here. Last day of school for my little man, yippee! Tomorrow we were suppose to head up to the cottage but the boys want to stay in the city till Sunday night, argh. Reason: tie up any loose ends, say so long to friends, blah, blah, blah. Okay, I guess I'll just have to wait even thou I am itching to go....NOW. LOL

Regardless, I had planned to get out to you what I have done so far for the June DSO CC this month. It's not a lot: 10 papers, 10 or so frames, and 2 templates I dug out from a couple of years ago. I didn't have enough time to make anything else, sorry. I hope you can use something from it anyway.

Here is the preview.

That's it from me. I have to go posting else where and then get ready for the party at school at 1 pm.

Have a fun filled summer or winter.
Enjoy your downloads and your day.

Journal Pages - Freebie

How are you all doing on this beautiful Monday. Enjoying the outside, the fresh air, I hope.
Friday is quickly approaching and then Summer Vacation begins. Yippee :)

As I mentioned before, Tyler is into bugs lately. This afternoon he asked me to make him a Bug Journal with colors that were adventurously aged, like Indiana Jones. He loved it. I thought maybe you could use one too.
There are 3 12x12 pages; left and right sides for writing on and a blank page that can be used for the front and back covers and the right and left sides of the journal pages for photo pages inside the journal. I have left them on layers in .psd format so that you can go about changing up the colors and adding any embellishments you find fitting for your own journals.

After I printed out 100 pages I put them in a tray. Tyler can grab some and go about his adventures. When he's done he'll put them back in another tray. He hasn't decided how he wants to bind them yet so we'll cross that bridge when we come to it. It's should be a fun hybrid type project for him.
I don't know if he wants me to put the photos on the blank pages and then print them or if he wants me to print out the pictures so he can stick them physically on to the journal pages. I totally forgot to ask him about that LOL. Have to write that on my Ask It list LOL. Done :)

Well I am getting tired so I best go and get ready for bed. Tomorrow I will look through some more folders and see what I can come out with to pass along to you before we leave you all for the summer.

Until then, enjoy your downloads and your day.

Old Funk QPs - Assorted Papers - Freebies

Congrats Chicago! What an fantastic series you played. The entire series between Chicago and Philly was amazing. When ever I got the chance to watch some of it I seen 100% action on the ice. There were so many amazing plays.
The cities here are into the full swing of the World Cup Soccer Series now; flags waving every where. Little Italy, Little Portugal, Little Spain,Little Brazil, packed. The English Pubs are packed too. But there is no bigger party then the one for Africa thou. Every one I spoke with today was so proud of the country and hoped the event brought a calming peace to the lands.

It's a gorgeous Sunday here in Oakville. We came back from the shore about an hour ago and now we are relaxing before heading out this evening. I am feeling much better and am actually getting out and doing stuff again. There is no better time to get you all out some promised papers and quick pages then right now.

First up is Old Funk that were done for a friend of mine. There are 6 quick pages in this series.

Next are a mix of papers; 2 from my Spring Rain series, 1 from my Wildflower series, 1 from my Hearts series, and 1 from my Scenic series.

And that's it for now. So I am off to grab a bite to eat, walk the dog, visit Sandy and get ready for our evening out.

We hope you all enjoy your downloads and have a fantabulous day.

May DSO CC Mini Kit + Bonus - Freebie

Hello, Hello, Hello, Everyone.

Hope you are all doing well. It's been a is great.
Our Australian friends left for their motor home journey on Friday. We had a wonderful 2 weeks with them, went like every where. Joe started holidays on Friday and will be leaving for the cottage in the very early morning. It's Victoria Day Weekend here or what many call 'the 2 4 weekend'...take that as you will :) It usually rains and turns hot and muggy, perfect for mosquitoes. It's also the time when folks open up the cottage or mobile home and light up the bbq for some grilled steaks and veggies. That's us :)
The kids will be out of school in a couple of weeks.....the school year sure did go by fast.

But enough babble...

Over the past month, whenever I've had a some spare time, I've been working with the DSO Colors for May. So I told Joe yesterday that I must get out to you all what I have at least done. I was on an experimental journey with this kit. Nothing fancy by any means. So lets get to it cause there are 5 files for a whopping 334 mb to be had. You'll find the links below the images.

First up there is the papers......there are 3 packs....

Second there is the elements.....the are about 50 or more in there.

Third there is a bonus pack....with the alphas, more papers, elements, and a template. I made an extra set of those brackets extra big.

Whew. And there you have it....not complete by any means.
So I am off to dream land till 2 am. I'll catch you all when we get back next weekend.

Enjoy your downloads and your days.

iNSB Day Textures - Freebie

Happy (International) Scrapbooking Day!

Can I say WOW! I have gone through over a dozen stores already this morning, saving images. Why? There is way to many choices for me and I can't make up my mind what I really need. There are just way too many fantastic kits and all kinds of stuff to choose from, it's mind boggling. I haven't opened Reader yet, haven't downloaded a freebie either. I can only imagine but I'll just bet there is over 1000 + blogs to read in there. And a ton of freebies to boot. And then there is the monthly blog trains. Whew, we are all going to be busy bees for the next few days. I am leary to even open my email LOL

Thank goodness I booked this weekend off with the boys ( I think it's going to rain too) so I won't be interrupted while I spend the entire day on the computer. I've never done that before.
The boys are off fishing and doing 'boy things' and they promised they won't be back till dark so I am just relaxing and enjoying. Everything is done in the house too. Joe even got me a 2 terabytes EHD. I think it's way too much and will take me forever to fill it up but Joe says that's good, he won't have to fetch me another for a long time to come.

I wanted to get some free stuff out to you all for the iNSB Day too, and was getting a bit behind on that so I thought I best stop looking at all the goodies and get these out to you asap. I made up some textures this week which I used on a few pages I created and I hope you can use them as masks or textures, depending on the graphics program you use or how you use these types of things. I haven't used them all myself yet LOL. There are 18 of them.

Edit: gees I totally forgot to mention....each are 300 dpi and 3600x3600 aka 12x12

Here are the previews and below them the links.

The images are backwards to the links... so image 1 = download 4. okay

Now I won't keep you any longer. I have some decisions to make :)
Thanks for stopping by.
Enjoy your day and your downloads!

April DSOCC - Freebie

Good Morning, All;

Are you all ready for NSBD, May 1st?
I asked Joe to get me an external terabyte drive today and I told him I will need it by the end of the month. If the week long events will be anything like last year I am going to need it. There will be parties going on in every forum and lots of freebies and especially discounts on neat products. I always save 100 dollars for this event and I go everywhere, even the nooks and crannies :)

Tyler is off with his school, to Ottawa! For the whole week :) On the way they are going to visit 1000 islands, an airplane and train museum, 3 noteworthy properties owned by famous historical people, two food companies, two schools where they will sleep at night on the way to Ottawa. When they finally arrive in Ottawa they will be staying at a university dorm near the capital building, visit a war museum and numerous other events the school has planned for them. He was really excited when they left Monday morning and when he called me tonight. He took his camera and has already filled 4 4 gig memory cards. I can't wait to see them.

So with Tyler away on his adventure we are presently going threw boxes trying to get out tax papers in order. I can't seem to remember where the heck I put them. I just had them all out a month ago. If I hadn't re-organized my desk we wouldn't be going through boxes, dang.

Over the last couple of days I was able to catch up on several blogs I follow and also finally finished reading what Reader had in there. Man that Reader can add up to a lot when you don't have the time to read it.

In my free time, which is increasing ever so slow, I was able to get some things done for Kim B's April Color Challenge. This includes....

40 brackets, 9 glass flowers, 6 decorative papers, 6 brad buttons, 6 frames, 5 card stock papers, 9 decorative glass ornaments.
Here's the preview and below it you will find the links.

I am starving so I need to go an eat.
Enjoy your downloads and your day
