I am so glad you guys are liking my acrostics. I have ideas for different twists on them later, so that should be fun to see. Also my number of subscribers has been steadily rising the last few days and I am always happy to see that!!
And ALWAYS: thank you, thank you for the comments both here and on 4shared. They always make me smile and some make me laugh out loud. If you ever post a layout with any of my freebies, I would so love to see anything you wind up doing with them. It is such sweet motivation to know that you guys are out there appreciating and using my designs! :)
Tomorrow I am posting my Sister acrostic, but today you get a wordart for friends:
Today is a nice day because it's the beginning of my hubbie's vacation from work. He's taking a break (he works too hard!). Of course he is facing quite the honey-do list, so there's not going to be much relaxing going on haha!
Another acrostic, as promised. I'm follwing the same format and liking the family theme, so I'm working on a Sister one next and then a Brother. I'll have them ready sometime this week.
So I'm in a fairy mood. :) Tomorrow I will have the continuation of this poem excerpt from The Stolen Child by Yeats. I made them stuck together and then separated them, so they will fit together quite nicely. Stay tuned.
So I am determined to do another kit. I just need to get it in gear! I'm going to do another girlie one, since I had so much fun with the pink-filled Spring Time kit. Might also look into hopping onto another blog train this summer.. And I really need to join a forum and get back to scrapping, I haven't actually scrapped anything in weeks!
So here is today's freebie, I'll post more about my upcoming kit and other plans soon.
I am so glad you guys enjoyed the acrostic! I might try another one like that soon, any subject ideas are welcome. And requests are always welcome as well. That mother one just kinda happened, but I loved it. :)
Hola! Missed a day again yesterday, had to help one of my friends with her wedding plans. She's my distant cousin and one of my very best friends. I am her matron-of-honor and I could not be more thrilled. It is going to be a beautiful wedding! I am completely psyched, I haven't ever been in a wedding that was not my own. So now to be getting the highest wedding honor (MOH), I am completely floored. And excited!!
Anyway, that wedding's not for over a year, so I am sure I will gush on and on about it later :) Today's freebie:
On a personal note.. I love Easter (and don't even get me started on Christmas). But having no children to celebrate with kinda leaves me feeling a bit empty around the holidays. My friends and sisters gear up by decorating eggs and filling baskets for their kiddos. There are crazy egg hunts, Easter dresses, and chocolate bunnies. I feel left out :(
We're praying that this year we'll be able to try for another round of baby-making. We've been saving since our last attempt back in 2006, but it's tough when you have a mortgage, car payments, etc. This year we are thinking we'll be able to try again, I'm hopeful.
And isn't Easter about hope? And faith? I have both.

Ah so today I am going to take pictures of my new niece for her birth announcements. Also it is payday, so I will be running all over town paying bills and running errands. Then I believe my hubbie made plans for us to visit friends for dinner. Should be a busy day!
As for today's freebie, I made this one three different ways: A green and a purple:
And a grey for recoloring to match your layout/kit:
Check back tomorrow for yet another Easter freebie!!
Ahh I'm posting a freebie two days in a row, watch out haha. So I'm back. After my computer going down and the loss of my fonts I kinda got out of the blogging habit for a bit there. And today the cable man is coming to hook up a box for the TV in my bedroom AND I have a doctor's appointment. Bah!
Ah so I am back! Sorry for the absence! I just got completely distracted by real life for a few days there haha! I sooo appreciate everyone sticking with me. :)
But I am 100% back on track now. I have made a whole new crop of wordart and have already pre-published a few days in advance, so even if I don't get a chance to get on to blog they will still post. Am bummed I don't feel like I'll be able to produce an Easter kit like I was wanting to do, but I'll think of another idea and definitely release a new freebie kit later on this month.
The next few days will be Easter wordarts. I love Easter.
Tomorrow there will be another Easter wordart. Check back. Really! :)
Gosh it's late! But I was determined to get one out. I realize today has actually become tomorrow, sigh. And I was sorry to see I lost a blog follower through the mess. But c'est la vie, I appreciate everyone who stuck around and is checking back with me :)
Here is a freebie and I will be back on track from now on.
So. My computer is back up and running (yay!). I have Photoshop installed, my EHD is hooked up, everything was looking good..
But I always forget something! Last time my computer was reworked, I lost my favorites. Well, I learned my lesson this time, I kept my favorites. What did I forget to back up? My FONTS! AHHH! I am so upset. I have a few of them in a folder, but I forgot the bulk-load of them. And now I will have to go free font "shopping" again.
Am absolutely DETERMINED to have a new freebie up tomorrow. It shall be so :)
