Check out the new clothes!

How do you like my new look?? *cyber twirl in front of the world wide mirror * - My blog is newly decorated with pieces of my brand new kit, that I did for this weeks designer challenge at Brownie Scraps. Our assignment this week was to do a kit about childhood, and since for me horses were my big thing growing up ( and still today ) i did a kit that i am calling Horse Crazy! You will be able to get it FREE in the store next Friday and running for a week as free, then on sale.

Speaking of next Friday, we have a ton of things planned for you next week at Brownie Scraps on Black Friday. Although I guess that is now technically this week isn't it? Anyway, Our entire store is going to be on sale %25 off all day! Plus Speed Scraps ( im hosting one at 2 EST ), a Scavenger hunt, and a Bingo . All with prizes for winning, participation, and just lots of fun. Free Stuff, Sales, and Scrapping. It doesn't get much better than that!

Here is a Preview of the new kit, but you will have to wait till Friday to snag it!

Finally a New kit and New Freebie!

I haven't deserted you guys, I promise. It has just been a busy week. I have 2 freebies and a new kit to launch today! Bri was sick this week, and of course to a 5 year old, that means that the world is ending. So she and her brother have kept me running all week waiting on " the little princess " as she has taken to calling herself. She has also really been acting up even before she got sick. But even the doctor commented on how incredibly smart she is, so i really think that part of her behavior issues is related to her being so dang smart, that she just thinks of very creative ways to try things, that she shouldnt do. I think I need to find a way to challenge her brain more, in more constructive ways.

Last night we had Heidi ( the kids sitter ) come over and watch the kids, so we could go see Twilight. It was pretty good. Ive seen all the yucky reviews, and yeah it was funny at times at serious moments cause of the way it was acted, but i sort of think it was supposed to be that way. It was an unbelieveable story, that was almost real. And there was a lot of laughs in the book. It only makes sense that that was translated onto the screen. It should have been longer, so that they could have really gone more in depth to it. Yes, it lost some of the book because we werent reading the thoughts as much, and it was just impossible i think to really translate to the screen, what an amazing thing that series is. But it was a pretty good attempt. And I dont think that a lot of the laughs were so much because of the acting, as it was that we knew what thoughts were behind the moments. I think most people that see it, are people that have read the book, and so we KNOW. We know what they are thinking, and feeling, and trying not to do. So it just somehow leads to laughter seeing those moments played out in front of us.

I think that Rob did a great job as Edward. There were moments where he wasnt what i pictured, but thats probably because the guy i pictured isnt real. You could definitely see some of Midnight Sun in his acting of certain moments. He really took what he learned from that, and played it from that perspective instead of twilights perspective as far as what he showed expression and emotion wise. And I think that will be difficult for some people that havent read midnight sun to understand, because it isnt strict to what they learned in twilight. Anyway, apart from one scene that annoyed me as far as changes go, i loved it!

Anyway, onto the freebies!
We are doing our designer challenge for you again over at Brownie Scraps, so I will have a new freebie every week for the next 8 weeks ( they come out on fridays ! )
Here is this weeks. I am calling it Forget the Blues, because to me it is very cheerful and happy! Its available in the Brownie Scraps store for Free this week. and will be $2 next week and on.

Here is my Brand new kit. It is sort of fantasy, soft, sparkly and magical! It will be great for winter pictures, spring pictures, little girl pictures, and even some little boy pictures. I really hope you like it. I also made some quick pages to give you from this kit. You can pick the kit up in the store, and the quick pages here

What I am Working on

I first want to say thank you for all the sweet comments on my last post, they have really helped pull me out of my blue mood, and make me not feel so alone.

Secondly, I wanted to update to what I am working on, and thats actually a few things :

First off, we are going to be doing a very special 25 Days of Christmas over at Brownie Scraps. There will be a download for each day, and each days download will have a few goodies for you. They will all be in holiday theme, and with the same color palate, so if you download them all, you will have a HUGE kit for FREE! and these wont just be page items, we are doing gift tags, and all kinds of FUN holiday stuff for you guys. I really hope that you enjoy it as much as we are enjoying making it for you. You will find stuff from all the great Brownie Scraps designers in there, so there will definitely be some good stuff.

Also, I am working on a kit that was inspired by my shower curtain ( yes, its true ) but it will be another soft kit, sort of like Heirloom romance, so I hope you guys like it. I am hoping to get that done by the end of this weekend, but I am not sure.

I got my calendar for 2009 done that i am gonna order for our family, and I am hoping to turn that into 13 quick pages to give away for free as well for you guys. So keep checking back for those also. It will have a little bit from all my kits to give you a nice feel of my stuff. Plus will make for some quick holiday gifts if you are short on time like i am!

Well i have to go chase down my 2 year old ( dont ask, what isnt he into today? ) so check back soon!
Oh and while you are waiting for me to create some new stuff, go visit Ramona's blog, and pick up her free word art, plus her new kit is going to be free also!

Happy Veterans Day...... Unsung Heroes Freebie

Well tomorrow is Veterans Day, and the closer we get to Thanksgiving and Christmas the more I am stressing and worrying about my husband deploying the first week in January. The holidays have sort of been ruined for me this year, I just cant seem to make myself look forward to them.

I decided to make a kit about it, and as a gift, I am putting the word art contained in the kit ( as well as the two elements shown on the word art preview ) available for free. To top it off, the full kit is on sale for %50 for Veterans Day on November 11th and 12th. I hope you enjoy it. *** editing to add that the typo on the preview on " breath " isnt on the word art in the download, so dont let that stop you from downloading, i just havent redone the preview ( thanks Janet! ) Click the links below to download

Are you ready for something new?

I promise I haven't deserted you all! I know I havent posted much this week, but I havent had to much to post with our current daily downloads over, but you can still pick up Dream Garden for free over at Brownie Scraps and I do have a brand new ( also free ) kit queued up to be added for free over there also! It should be up in the next day or two, and then I will post a preview here for you. It was inspired by the Twilight Series, so I really hope you all like it.

Our Anniversary was yesterday, and for the most part we had a nice quiet day, atleast as quiet of a day as you can have on election day. After the kids went to bed we had a date in, and it was nice. When the Twilight movie comes out, we are gonna go out and see that to really celebrate.

I hope all is well with you, and keep checking back - I will be posting the links for the free Twilight inspired kit as soon as its posted to the store!
