Never Be One

Hi everyone! Hope everyone is having a good day!

I know this is a very specific wordart, for pictures of daddies with their baby girls on their second birthdays. So I will understand if I don't get near as many downloads as usual, but I heard this song the other day and couldn't resist, this song is a special one to my family. My father had three girls in a row and every time one of us turned two, we would get a special dance with Daddy to this song. I can't remember my own (although I have been assured it did happen), I do remember each of the times he danced with my sisters on the nights of their second birthdays. A private living room dance with a drowsy baby (both sisters were thumb suckers, a piece of the image for me) to an old Alabama record. Sweet.


Y'all check back tomorrow :)

Spring Words

Thank you so much to everyone who downloaded and for all the kind comments. When I went to bed last night there were over 150 downloads! Whew! That was fun! I'm definitely going to participate in a train again!

I am not sure when I will get around to making another kit. I'm wanting to do one for Easter, I do love Easter. So that will probably be next up, released sometime in early April. Right now I am really searching for a job and need to get that done and settled, so I can't be working too much on kits for the moment. But I will keep up the wordarts, never fear lol :)

So today I have two wordarts for you. I think they would be a great compliment to the Spring Time Collab kit released yesterday. Or for any spring layout, of course! If you're looking for my contribution to the Precious Convoy, it's one post lower, just scroll on down.

And so here they are:




Check back tomorrow for a wordart for the moms out there.

Precious Convoy's Spring Time Blog Train

Choo Choo!!! :)

For all my first time visitors, WELCOME! Please feel free to look around, I have released a few little freebie kits so far and have wordart downloads in between on most days :) Make sure to check back tomorrow especially, I'll post a couple free springtime wordarts that will really compliment this kit.

I had so much FUN making this one. I thought I loved that farm kit, but this one really has my heart. I noticed (for the first time, strangely enough) that I hadn't done an all-out girlie kit yet. And now I am enamored completely. Pinks and purples and greens...sigh...bliss.
This is full size, 300 dpi, 12x12 papers, png formats.
And without further ado, here is my portion of the kit:





The next stop on your train ride is: Lyn Designz Scraps.
So head on over and see what she has up her sleeve for you!!

And here is a list of all the stops, so you don't miss a one:

Now I'm off to follow the train myself!
Thanks so much for stopping by and downloading!
Don't forget to check back tomorrow; I'll share a couple free spring wordarts!

Spring has Sprung

Today a springtime freebie.
I'm working on my blog train contribution today!
Used Atomic Cupcake's puffy felt action for this one:


Till tomorrow!

Darn It!

Well, I somehow exceeded my bandwidth on Photobucket. So all my previews are gone. And my Photobucket account is nowhere near full of pictures, so I know it must be people using my pictures straight from my account :(

Am a little busy today, but I will try to get on sometime today and fix my photo links :(

On the Road Again

Drumroll please... :)
My new baby niece, Julia Dianne:
My husband and I have 16 nieces and nephews now - with another nephew on the way this summer. Only four are on my side, my husband is one of 7 children, so his side of the family supplies most of the offspring. :)

Today's wordart, obviously another country music inspired one.
From the great Willie Nelson.


Am getting excited for the Precious Convoy Spring Time Blog Train. It will be leaving the station March 22, so be sure to check here for my portion. And keep checking back for my daily wordart freebies!!

There is Only One Pretty Baby

Soooo I am up early today! And excited! My youngest sister is having her second baby. They induced her at 6:00am and I'm headed up there to be there to take the first pictures of the baby in the delivery room now, her water will be broken at 7:30. And I will meet my newest niece, Julia Dianne. :)

Today's freebie:


And let me say a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who downloaded and/or commented on the Farm Time kit. I am so glad it was so well received. You guys are awesome :) :)

Till tomorrow!

Lucky to Be Loved By You

Today is (of course) St. Patrick's Day! I like this holiday, I'd love to visit Ireland and green is my favorite color.

Today is also my baby sister's wedding anniversary. She married her Jeremy two years ago today. A sweet holiday for an anniversary, I think. I made this wordart thinking of them. Used the Atomic Cupcake's colored chrome action again. Feel free to recolor it if the clover's hue doesn't coordinate with whatever you're using it with.


Check back tomorrow!

Farm Time

Well, it is about time, huh?
Sorry this kit took so long to get out, I have a lot going on in the real world :)

Farm Time:





I am not convinced I'm 100% done with this one, I liked working with it and feel like I had a lot I planned to add that I just didn't have time for. Maybe I'll do an add-on sometime soon.

Till tomorrow :)

Oops again!

Ahh I am so sorry!
I had this post set to auto-post and forgot to add the darn kit.
Silly me, I'll be back in an hour or so to post it.
I crack me up. :)

My Big Little Brother

I have a little brother, Paul. Today is his 17th birthday, something that just blows me away. He is tall, too, he towers over us all, parents included. Tall Paul. He's a great little brother, I adore him. So here is today's wordart, for all of us older sisters with little brothers who aren't so little anymore:


Am getting my kit out later today, sorry for the delay, there's a lot going on right now. And tomorrow a St Pat's Day wordart :)

Irish Blessing

So I'm running a day behind here.. Today I have a wedding to be at out of town, so my apologies on having to make y'all wait another day for the kit. Definitely posting it tomorrow, so check back.

An early St. Pat's gift today. I used Atomic Cupcake's colored chrome action on it for a little something extra.


Tomorrow my farm kit!

Love is Alive

Having a kind of blah type of day today. Lots of yawns.
Still working on the farm kit. More tomorrow.
And while you wait, another country-music inspired wordart, this one from the Judds:

Before You...

So I am still working on the farm kit. It may be Saturday sometime before I can post it, tomorrow may be a bit optimistic :) But it is still coming up!

I haven't forgotten the award I received from Scrafurple. I appreciate it so much, but just don't have time right now to really participate as I should and pass it on. :( I will tell you, please visit my blog subscription list in the right sidebar, it is full of amazing designers. It is so hard to single anyone out, I am just enamored of so many people's talents. But I do want to post her website and the award I received:

Scrafurple's site:
Be sure to check her out, she has some really cute wordart freebies up, very worth a look.
And the award:

And last but certainly not least!
Today's freebie is in honor of my sister, Kelley (the older of my two younger sisters). She lives out of town, but we talk on the phone most days, she is a pretty cool little sister :)

Anyway, it's her 23rd birthday today and she is a complete Twilight fanatic, so I thought this quote from Edward in New Moon was appropriate for the occasion:


Check back tomorrow, another wordart freebie!

A Smile a Day

Ah well I'm in a bit of a hurry today. I did see the wonderful award that Scrafurple left me, but don't have time right now to do anything about it right this minute. Will get to that hopefully this evening, tomorrow morning at the latest. I soooo appreciate it and am absolutely flattered to be included with some of the talent on her list (Nicole and Mel to point out a couple amazing designers). So I will be back for that.

I found my missing wood-burnt wordart, so here ya go:


I'll be back tonight or tomorrow with more :) Later!

You Are My Sunshine

Ah, I'm feeling lazy today, might spend it in my robe!
I am looking for a new part-time job, blah. I lost mine back in January and have been kinda dilly-dallying about getting a new one. But we need the paycheck! My last job was a work-at-home one and I would LOVE to get another like it, but so far I'm having no luck. :(

In scrapping news, my farm kit is still coming along nicely. I anticipate posting it Friday or Saturday. And then I'll get busy on my contribution to the Precious Convoy Spring Time Blog Train. Yay! :)

Also, I was asked via email if I will do requests and my answer is: sure. If you're familiar with my stuff and think I can do a good job, I'm flattered really. My email is listed in the right sidebar, just shoot me a question and I'll get back to you ASAP. I will try to have real quick turnaround.

Today's freebie:


Check back tomorrow!

Apache Blessing

Ok, I believe (I'm pretty sure..) I got this little blessing out of a Chicken Soup for the Soul book, probably one relating to romance or couples. I went through a phase where I devoured all those books (at least the ones that applied to me - I shied away from anything relating to mothers or families.. sigh). While some of the stories are admittedly corny, I find myself tearing up at at least one or two a book. At least, haha.


Tomorrow another one I wood-burned.

Children Reinvent the World for You

So I haven't gotten a darn thing done on my kit. Still have wordart to spare, so keep checking back. I plan to have the farm kit done sometime in the next week or so, with enough time for me to get my pretty pastel submission to the Precious Convoy Spring Time Blog Train (blinkie/link in right sidebar) done for March 22nd. So keep watch for those goodies.

Today's wordart:


And a bonus wood wordart, using Atomic Cupcake's burnt wood action, because I missed yesterday:


Check back tomorrow, it's a doozie.

Friday, March 6, 2009


Sorry, I'm a day behind on freebies, having a bit of a hectic one today.

Check back tomorrow, I'll make it worth your while.

You're Something Special to Me

So I finally had a touch of inspiration for my next kit. I think I'm going to do something farm-ish. No idea why that came to me, but it's a good idea, so I'll run with it. I would like to claim I will have it done by Monday, but am unsure right now what we've got goin' on this weekend, so I will just let you know more as I do.

Also I need to scrap! I want to put together pages from the concert I went to with my sisters! And way more, I have more pictures than are imaginable and have hopes to get many of them scrapped. No deadline, maybe that's my problem! LOL!

Ok, here is today's freebie, it's the last of the George Straits:


I have more country music wordart saved up, but I think I will veer off course and give you something different for awhile. Tomorrow I'll have one that's good for kids.

A Love As True As Mine

Today's is a late/short post, I had a lazy morning :)

Here is today's freebie. I haven't even gotten started yet on a new kit, but I do have an idea in mind. I need to get back to scrapping myself, designing is so addicting I tend to neglect my own scrapbooking!


*And as soon as I posted that one, I looked at it and decided to change it. I moved the bottom words around so it makes more of a right angle, I'm imagining a picture in there. I'm leaving the original, but here is my newer updated one as well:


Check back tomorrow!

Our Love is Unconditional

Omigosh! My wordart from Saturday was listed on IkeaGoddess's blog yesterday. You should've seen my happy dance! She was one of the first digi-scrap blogs I found and the very first one I subscribed to when I discovered the magic of Google Reader lol.

Thank you so much to everyone who commented both here and on 4Shared, I appreciate your kind words so much. I really can't express how good it makes me feel to see people downloading my work and leaving appreciative comments. Warms my heart, really :)

Today's wordart freebie is from a George Strait song. Yes, the country-music-themed wordart continues lol, and will for a bit longer. I can't help but be inspired by the music I surround myself with. Sunday's was a sweet waltzy one by Lee Ann Womack and Mark Chesnutt. Today is a classic by the King of Country. I love George Strait. A lot. :)


So I have a few more inspired by Mr. Strait songs through the next few days. Check back, even if you're not a country fan they are pretty sweet. :)

Monday, March 2, 2009







Whew! haha

I had thought about releasing it through the week in pieces, and eventually I think I will go that route, but right now I'm still too psyched to draw it out lol. And I don't know when I will start my next freebie kit, but definitely check back for my daily wordart freebies in the meantime. And if you do any layouts with my kits, I would LOVE to see them (please? lol).

Til tomorrow :)

Make Memories With Me

Still at work on the Dungarees kit. Am really hopeful I'll get it out tomorrow. Am debating between posting it all at once (like I did the Pajama Party kit) or taking a cue from fellow digi-scrap-bloggers and releasing it over the course of a few days.. Haven't come to a decision yet, but we'll all find out tomorrow haha!

Today's freebie:


Check back tomorrow, I'll have a kit for you! Or at least a piece of one LOL.
