It's Amazing

Where did February go? It's been over 90 degrees this week! And the fires! Many in my area, there was one so close to my home recently that had the sun hazed over with smoke and a sprinkling of ash in my backyard! Scary, but it's been contained now, thank God. There's a cold front moving through the area now, it'll be a nice change from the summery weather.

So I have decided upon a name and palette for my kit and have started on it already. Yay! It will be called Dungarees (yes, I seem to be inspired by clothing LOL).

I am planning on posting it Monday. I should have time this weekend while hubbie levels up on World of Warcraft to get some work in on it.

And here's your freebie for today, from the Keith Whitley song When You Say Nothing at All. I love this song and while I am a huge Alison Krauss fan, I've always prefered the original version. LOL, enough of my country music babble, here it is:


See you tomorrow for more of my country-music-themed wordart (don't worry country haters - only a few more days, stay with me haha)!

If There Hadn't Been You 2

So I'm getting started on the kit today. Am still shooting to post it on Monday, but I was planning that this week too and didn't get it out till Tuesday hehe.

Here is today's freebie, a continuation of yesterday's country song wordart. From Billy Dean's If There Hadn't Been You, here is the second piece. Use them together, seperately, whatever.


Tomorrow I'll try and post a color palette and name for my next kit. Stay tuned haha!

If There Hadn't Been You

Over 200 downloads of my Pajama Party kit, I cannot express how happy that makes me and how much I love reading all your kind comments. It seems my pajama pants were calling me to design a kit around them, but not much else around here is talking haha. I'm still thinking of a new theme for my next kit. Am hoping (hoping!) to release it Monday. I'm thinking blues and browns right now, something boyish. We'll see how it goes..

Also! I have signed on to Precious Convoy's Spring Time Blog Train. That will be happening March 22nd and I'm pretty excited about it already :) There's a blinkie added to my sidebar if you're interested and I'll talk more about that as it gets closer. And my other blinkie is for the Spirit of Summer charity mega kit to help the victims of the Australian bush fires. For a small donation you get a whopper of a kit. I haven't had a chance to scrap with it yet, but just opening each folder was amazing. It's beautiful and a great value. Plus you're helping out the victims and survivors of those horrible fires. We've had quite a few wildfires in my area lately (one in the next county is still raging now), so I understand the toll it takes.

For now I have been in a country music state of mind for awhile. Today's freebie and tomorrow's are lyrics from the same song, I couldn't decide which piece to use, so I used them both. It's from Billy Dean's If There Hadn't Been You, a fabulous country love song from the early 90's:


Check back tomorrow for another piece of the song. And more info on the next kit.

I was so excited to see people downloading my kit! I had over 50 downloads on 4shared when I went to bed last night and even more this morning! And I really appreciate all the comments, I'm so glad you guys liked the kit so far! :) I am SO motivated to do another one now, I want to get started immediately!

Thanks to everyone who downloaded and commented. As I mentioned yesterday, I would LOVE to see any layouts you make with it, so if you do please comment and post a link for me.

Today's wordart (from a Josh Turner song; it -and a couple others- were made around the time my sisters and I went to his concert):


Check back tomorrow, another wordart!

Pajama Party

OK, so drumroll please... I have finished my first kit :)

It's called Pajama Party because it was completely inspired by a pair of my pajama pants. I made little epoxy pajamas, they are my favorite part. And speaking of epoxy.. I kinda got a little crush on that Atomic Cupcake action in this kit. I promise to go easier on it next go-round :)

Here it is:
(Please forgive my awful preview-making skills, I need some practice!!)





I had a good time making it! I still have my trusty wordart back-ups for now, and haven't really had an idea for another kit, but am going to try and get started again right away. Keep up the momentum.

Let me know what y'all think. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to see any layouts done with it. Oh, and check back tomorrow for a new wordart. :)

A Home is Built of

So I know I said I would have the freebie kit done today. And technically it is done, but I still have to do previews, write a darn TOU, etc. So I will release it tomorrow instead.

Here's a wordart to tide you over :)


Tomorrow I will have a kit to download, so check back.

Sisters of the Heart

Still working on my freebie kit!!
Here's today's wordart, I believe I lifted this poem out of a Chicken Soup for the Soul book:


Tomorrow check back and we'll see if I have a kit to offer!

Saturday, February 21, 2009


So I'm back! I've been beat, I swear that concert took more out of me than I'd expected! Dishes and laundry are piling up and I stay in my robe! LOL!

Here is a freebie, because I am sorry to have been MIA so long.


I'll have another wordart freebie tomorrow and then hopefully Monday I will be ready to release my first freebie kit! I have been working on it. Praying it'll be ready then, we'll see!!

Thursday, February 19, 2009


Ah today I am still a bit wrung out from the concert, we didn't get back into town til 4am! Ouch!

So no freebies today. Check back tomorrow, it'll be worth it, I promise :)

Isn't She Lovely

Today is the Josh Turner concert (insert high-pitched girly scream here)!!!!
It's in San Antonio, a 4.5 hour drive from my hometown. My youngest sister (who is 8 months preggo!) and I are headed out from here and my other sister is leaving from her home near the DFW area. We'll meet up there and scream in ecstacy at Mr. Turner!! My father-in-law is a very popular local DJ and he got us niiiice tickets. Feeling very blessed today. :)

So I'm offline for the day, but here is today's freebie.
I used Atomic Cupcake's cut-out action on it to try a little something different.
I really like this one :)


Tomorrow I don't believe I'll post, I believe I'll sleep. We'll be rolling back into town pretty late. So check back Thursday and I'll have another freebie for ya.

Have I Told You Lately

Ok, ok, I know I promised a freebie that wasn't wordart today.. My bad :)

I've just been swamped lately and wordart is what I have already available. I haven't even had time to do any scrapping for myself lately! And tomorrow my sisters and I are going to a Josh Turner concert, something I am super super excited about, we're big fans. It's a crazy long drive, almost 10 hours round trip drive, but we consider it worth it!! :) :)

But I am determined to have an actual kit to offer next week starting Monday, February 23. No excuses. You guys hold me to it and make sure to check back for it. Till then, I will continue to entice you back with my daily wordart freebies, so keep coming. :)
Today's freebie:


Tomorrow I'll have another wordart. Check back!

Beautiful Dreamer

Hope everyone had a nice V-Day. My favorite 1st grader (my cousin's super-smart daughter - I just adore her) had a birthday party yesterday, she's 7! Blows my mind! And then hubbie took me out to eat, it was a sweet holiday.

Today's freebie:


So I'm still undecided as to what will be my freebie tomorrow. You can check back and be surprised with me! :)

An Amen Kind of Love

Happy Valentines Day!!

Hope everyone has a great holiday!
Here's your wordart (inspired by a Daryle Singletary country song):


Tomorrow a sleepy wordart.

Still Going Strong

Ah well I have been in a rut!! Need to shake things up. And so this weekend I really will. My freebie for Monday will not be a wordart. I haven't decided yet what I will do, but I definitely need to begin branching out.

BUT I am still a big wordart fan and still have a bagillion saved up to offer, so I will get back to them. Here is today's. My hubbie and I have been married over 8 years now, so I really like this one :)


Tomorrow will be another romantic one (of course)!

Blue Jean Baby

Am feeling a little blah this morning, I need to wake up!

Today's freebie has white text, so I put a pink background on for the preview. The actual freebie has no pink at all, but the text is white. Inspired by Tiny Dancer, Elton John. :)
Click to download:


Check back tomorrow, I'll have a wordart for sisters.

A Friend Knows the Song

So here ya go:


Tomorrow a cute one, check back.

Where'd the Snow Go?

Ah it's Sunday and I'm lazy. Here's a freebie. I heard this in passing on TV the other day and it stuck in my head. -(Not like we have had any snow here in Texas, but I'm sure some of you are shivering!)

Click to download:


Tomorrow a wordart for friends. Check back.

She will Fill Our Lives

Well, this worked out perfectly. Today is the final installment of my niece/nephew wordarts, it is for my youngest sister who is expecting a baby girl in April. And today is her baby shower, so it's fitting that this wordart be posted today!

She will name the baby Julia. Julia was our grandmother's name; she passed away when I was young, before my sister was born. I love that name, I think it's beautiful.
And here is her wordart:


Check back tomorrow, I'll have a new freebie!

The Smiliest Boy

Today is part three of my niece/nephew wordarts. For Jaiden, 15 months old.

Ok, I don't believe smiliest is a word, but this kid is the absolute happiest baby ever. And his smile lights up his whole face, it is impossible not to smile back. He's expressive and inquisitive and a rock-and-roll drummer in training.
Here's his wordart:


Tomorrow one for my Jaiden's as-yet-unborn baby sister.

A Moment of Peace

Hey y'all!

Today's wordart is for my niece Caitlyn. She's 16 months old and beginning to get a little wild like her older brother Jacob. She's a fast toddler, a loud babbler, and a gorgeous big eyed-princess. Also she is a chubby baby, and I love chubbs. :)

Caitlyn's wordart:


Tomorrow I'll have one for my next nephew in line, Jaiden.

Coolest Nephew

Sorry about the link not working for awhile there yesterday. The I copied the link wrong somehow. Thanks to Madd for pointing it out, I'm glad you stopped back by to see it was fixed!

So I still have yet to really get my feet wet in the digi-scrap world.. the real world keeps tripping me up. But I sure am good at wordart! And freebies!

I am the eldest child of four. Two younger sisters and one brother. My brother is still in high school, but the two sisters are married and have two kids each (almost! the younger sister is expecting her second). Jacob and Caitlyn are the first set and then the younger sis has Jaiden and is due in April with a baby girl, Julia. I am a proud aunt, so I thought I'd do a short wordart-freebie-series dedicated my siblings' offspring.

Here's crazy Jake's offering today. At three years old he is the oldest nephew and definitely a ball of fire. He's endlessly imaginitive, an aspiring artist, a champion tantrum thrower, and very very sweet little boy.


Check back tomorrow for Caitlyn's wordart.

Trouble Quote (a day late!)

Ahh! I missed a day! :)

Yesterday hubbie took a surprise vacation and I was caught off guard! So here is the freebie quote meant for yesterday:


And I will post tomorrow with a new freebie and a longer post!
Stick with me haha!

February Frost

It's February, so I thought I'd make a wordart to commemorate the new month. I enjoy February. Here in Texas, our winters are short and sparse. So I enjoy every little bit I can get! Also, I am a sucker for Valentine's Day :)

Here's the freebie:


Tomorrow is a wordart quote perfect for kids.
