Sunshine Overaly

I had a special request to re-do the You are my Sunshine, so that it matched the beginning of the song, so it says You are my Sunshine, my only sunshine.

So, sorry, I didn't put up my freebie for this week, I had a migraine for the last 3 days and just got rid of it this morning, I was so whipped by it, I watched TV all afternoon and just now checking all my e-mails and stuff, and realized I didn't put up my freebie, I'll get it on sometime this afternoon, again I'm sorry.

Haven't heard a word about how anyone liked my freebie for this week, would love you to comment, tell me what kinds of files you want, if you like or don't like the files, I can take constructive critisism. Do you want more overlays, less overlays? What??? I'm doing a class tomorrow at my LSS, I'm very excited about it. I went to a photography class, and learn a lot of things about how to take better photo's, how to use a digital camera, ect...Last night I had a CTMH Party at my house, it turned out very good, and we had a good time visiting and talking with each other.

Busy weekend

Wow this weeked just flew by, on Saturday I want to Carolyns spring tea, and it was awesome, she really outdid herself, the food was soooo good. I was very good and pretty much stayed off the dessert table, I did take a cheese cake in a dark chocolate cup, but only ate a bite, it was really sweet. Then I went to a crop at my LSS and I did a couple pages for Zachery, one of them turned out really cute, and they talked me into giving a class and 5 of them signed up on the spot. So yesterday I spent all day getting the kits ready, soon as I get a picture of it I'll show it to you. This Saturday I'm going to teach my calender class, so I got ready for that too. Hope you like todays free file, it's a bunny overlay, and I'll get it posted asap.

Working and cleaning my room

I've designed a few more overlays today, and getting ready for a crop tomorrow. I'm belong to the Red Hat and Sassy Scrappers group, and we are cropping at Carolyns house tomorrow and then she is going to treat us to a spring tea. I know I will have a ball there.

Starting my Cruise Album with swirls

Here is the first page of my cruise album, This is Ft Lauderdale as we were leaving port. I made the swirls across the page, title in grungboard I LOVE THAT STUFF!!, shells, and I also designed 2 more swirls that match these for the next page. I went ahead and showed you a picture close up of the grungeboard title, that is the most awesome stuff to cut on the KNK, I had to cut it twice, but then it popped right out, it's thicker than the chipboard and stands out nicely, I inked over the top of it, so you can see the swirls in the letters. Let me know what you think about it. I'm going to put it on my site sometime today so I can sell the files, if you can't wait, e-mail me and I'll send you a paypal notice and e-mail you the files. The collection is $4.99.

April 15th

Well it's tax day, have you filed your income tax? I'm normally a procrastonator, but this year I sent my taxes off on the 13th, I was so proud. I got a lot of thank you's on my blog and through e-mail for the overlay, and it makes me smile everytime I get one. I got my CD of pictures from the cruise that everyone took and I spent 2 hours going through them and figuring out which ones I wanted to print, I still think I have too many to print, but there were so many good pictures. I sent out my Auto-ship for April this morning, it's Spring Holiday Words, I think it turned out pretty good. Lots of titles and words that work around the spring holidays, also a few graphics and card ideas.

You asked for it, Overlays

I finally have some of my overlays for sale on my website, I have the cut out overlays, and also files of the overlays in .ai, .wpc, .gsd and .knk formats. The free one this week is "You are my sunshine on a cloudy day. I'm working hard to get more on my website, ebay and at paperthreads. If you'd like to purchase the finished overlay shipping will run around $2.50, I'll combine shipping if you order more than one. I also finished my taxes and mailed them off. Working on a finished 2 page layout to put on ebay, and of course I'll put all the files in a collection also, I should have that done sometime this week, keep checking back on Mondays for your free files. If you know of a overlay I've made and you want the files for it, send me a e-mail, I'll let you know if I have them all converted and ready to go, or if not I'll put that one next on my list.

Free File Monday

I've decided to give away the free file every Monday for a while at least, between life and what I have to do to keep up with my files on Paperthreads and my website, I only have time to do one a week. That gives you a chance to see what type of work I do, and it's fun to make them. If you have any files you'd like to see, be sure and post to my blog, I don't know you want something unless you tell me, also I like posting good quotes I find, be sure and post your favorite quote.

If you didn't know I'm a designer at Paperthreads also. I'm working on getting a lot of my files either deleted or converted to all file types, I like working there because once I upload the files Michelle does all the work in selling them, I get a lot of support from the other designers, and it's another venue to show my work. I also like being able to offer just one file at a time, some people don't want the whole collection, so if there is a file you want and don't want the whole thing, don't be afraid to ask. I can upload it to Paperthreads and you can buy it from me there. Plus there is just about any type of file you could want between me and the other designers. I'm working on getting my 12x12 overlay files converted to all file types and then uploading them to Paperthreads, I'll announce it when I do that.
I'm also in the process of revamping my website, there will be some exciting changes coming that you will love. I'll keep you posted.

As most of you know Wednesday is my play date with my friends, today we went out to eat at O'Charley's, it's getting pricey, then we went to Memories in Bloom, I got a few pirate things for my trip to Jamaica, we saw the pirate caves and graveyard. I worked on finishing up some titles and journaling from the pages I worked on this weekend. I had one personal e-mail where someone asked what they had to do to get my free files. All you have to do is come to my blog and get them, ANYONE can get my free files, I have no restrictions on that.

No work for me today, I went shopping this morning at Aldi's they have herring in mushroom cream in stock and if I didn't get it this morning it would have been gone, they only get this in twice a year, and it's gone in a day. I got 30 cans of it, that should last me til fall or next year. I also went to lunch at Red Lobster with one of my best friends, and then came home and took a nap, still tired from this weekend, then my grandson came to visit, his mom and dad are going to a concert tonight so I get to babysit, he's sleeping now so I can get a little work done.

Sunday night

It is late Sunday night here, well late for me, since I've just got back from a weekend crop in Memphis area. I had a ball, the camp wasn't that great, but the friends, and the food, and the hostesses were great, if your reading,,,Thanks Debbie and Stephanie, you are the greatest!!! The only one missing from our Wednesday best friends group was Marla, who usually stays home with her twin boys, we missed ya!!

Here is your free Monday file, it is a title with a shadow, requested by Sharon, and I had thought I had already sent it to her. I've decided to put all my free files on my website, so this link will take you directly to my free file page, and you can then download all my free files if you missed any. They won't be taken down, you can get them whenever you want them.

Tuesday already?

I guess it's true, the older you get the faster time goes. I'm preparing for a crop weekend this week, I leave Thursday morning to go to Memphis area for a crop with some friends of mine, I've been busy cutting out overlays to sell there. I've also been trying to get some page kits done, so I have something to work with. Last weekend my husband and I bought a paper cabinet, the kind you see in scrapbook stores, he cut part of it down for me,(it was 6" tall) and put it by my window, the other part he's going to put above my klick-n-kut for paper that I use for my machine. I'll try to take some pictures of it and put it up next week. I'm not sure if I'm going to post again before I get back on Sunday, but be sure and look for a free file on Monday.

Happy April Fools Day!
