About Me

I am a 51 year old woman who in the past few years have been through one thing after another. Even though I see God's hand in it all it has and continues to be a difficult road. I feel I cannot be the only person thinking and feeling the way that I do. Maybe not all of you and its not my intention to offend yet to help. So if you disagree then lets agree to disagree. This is the truth as it applies to my life and we could differ. This is my journey and I pray that in some way it may be helpful for you or someone you know. God Bless you all on your journey whatever it may be.

Oh boy am I ever quick this week! See me pat myself on the back!! I got the Friday Freebie done early!! See me dance, see me dance! I better do a lot of it because knowing me I will probably be late next week!! LOL

I hope you all like the freebie that I made for you this week

Today was uneventful. I pretty much spent most of the day on the computer designing. I had fun, although I was supposed to be grocery shopping. Tommorrow is another day.

Speaking of tommorrow I start a Women's Bible Study. I am really looking forward to it. We will be studying Romans. I believe this is the same book we were studying last time when I had to stop going because I got a job. Which turned out after 13 months to be a nightmare. We wont go there. It is a very long story I have put behind me now. Anyway about the Bible Study! I am really looking forward to it. I will be with other Christian Women. It will also be good to get out of the house too.

Well, I dont want to keep you waiting. Here is the preview of your freebie and the link is right under it. Please feel free to post your completed layout in my gallery on the Scrapping Garden so I can see your awesome job with it. You might even get another small freebie to go with it!!


I had so much fun with making this stickit. Please do not share it. Send your friends here if they would like to receive it. All of my TOU apply to this stickit. You know the standards I am sure.

Update on my parents cruise! Of course they both loved it. Yes, my dad got off the ship and had a blast taking pictures. My mom told me he took over 600, Yes, 600!! pictures. He was also very gracious to the people he took pictures of he gave them a couple of dollars for taking their picture. We are all saving up because we will be going on a family cruise for their 50th wedding anniversary. Fun, Fun, Fun!!! It will be in 2011 I think? I am not very good at figuring those things out.

Well, in the las few days I have bought several commercial use products that I have been wanting so I can do a good job on making your freebies for you. I am really excited! I hope you are too! I have started on the Chocolate Silk Element Add-On already. I am very happy with them.

I know it is not Friday yet but I have a stickit for you. I told you earlier that I also promote Linda Cumberland's products here. It is from both of her Home for the Holidays Kits. They are on sale until the end of the month for 50% off!! You need to go grab them here:

Today is the day. I got my mini kit all uploaded to 4shared so I will have the links below.
My mini Kit is called Chocolate Silk! I called it that because I used a texture that I felt looked like raw silk and the colors from the challenge looked mostly like chocolate to me there fore Chocolate Silk. I am hoping to continue working on this and eventually make it a full kit so when I finish the Mentoring Program I will have a kit ready. I also am going to try to have at least one kind of Freebie on my Blog once a week. That way you will come back to see me and see what is going on here.

I am still under construction and would like to to come back and check often to see what else is new and different here on my blog.

Another thing I would like to do in the future is to have small challenges here so I can also give you some fun freebies.

Also, my dear friend Linda Cumberland also is a designer at The Scrapping Garden has wonderful kits and this month has a huge, huge, sale going on. Once in a while you will see me advertise her kits or offer a stickit from one of her kits from time to time. Please be sure to check out her store this month because she has some awesome kits at rock bottom prices. Even her Christmas Kits. Those definitely you shouldnt pass up. Well now on to the good stuff.
Here is my mini kit:

Please excuse the mess!! I am going to be working on my blog the next week and hopefully get it set up with something more permanent so I do not have to keep changing it all of the time. Now that I have begun designing some I can make myself a nice header and get everything nice. So in the mean time please have paitence with me.

It looks as though I have gotten my first mini kit finished and will have it posted here soon for download. I am excited about that. It has a lot of paper and only a few elements but If people want something in particular made I will try to accommodate them if I am able.

Enough said for tonight I will be working on this blog tommorrow so hopefully it will look bright and cheery soon.
