Good morning everyone!!! Today I have a pack of 3 different family wordarts for you. The 3rd is included but is not pictured in the preview and it says "Friendships may come and go, but the Love of a family lasts forever.".
These previews are not very good since I had to shrink the WordArt down so much you can barely read it.
One says "Your family and your love must be cultivated like a garden. Time, effort, and imagination must be summoned constantly to keep any relationship flourishing and growing."
The other says "Families are the compass that guide us. They are the inspiration
to reach great heights, and our comfort when we occasionally falter."

Good morning everyone!! Today I have a pack of AGED, INKED UP Tags and Strings!! I have included tags and also just plain strings with eyelets attached, so you can put the strings onto any old tag you please. I hope you enjoy them.

I have been struggling with trying to make a decision to put passwords on my downloads. I *HATE* having to enter passwords to download freebies, but now I can understand why some blogs have download passwords. Because people (somehow) are getting into my 4Shared account and downloading things that I have not even announced and put a link onto the blog for. This is really annoying and I wish people wouldn't do that...but I don't know how to stop them unless I put passwords on the freebies. SIGH....funny how a few people always seem to ruin things for everyeone else. Well, enough negativity....

PS: I would *LOVE* it if you email me a pic of layouts using my freebies! Email me at:

I have some YUMMY HARDWARE for you guys!!!

I wish I could post a daily freebie, but I work full time (outside the home), so my time is limited sometimes. Rest assured, I will try to post freebies atleast a couple times per week.
Today I have 27 pieces of HARDWARE for you guys!!! I worked long & hard on this...and I hope someone can make use of it. The chains are great for hanging tags on, and you can also use them to hang picture frames from.

Hope you enjoy the hardware!! Please post in my c-box (upper right hand corner of my blog) if you download and let me know if you like this or not.

Grungy Screen ALPHA set Freebie!

Good afternoon! Crystal (my granddaughter) is taking a nap, so I have time to post the next freebie! This alpha includes upper case, lower case and special characters. I hope someone can use it! Thanks for your comments, please keep them coming -- I love to hear what you like or don't like. THanks!!

Good morning Ladies!! I have a brand new super-grungy paper pack for you!!

There are really 9 papers -- even though the preview says 8. I hope you enjoy this, because I am working on lots of elements to go with it. I will try to get the elements posted tomorrow, but it may have to wait until Monday because I am babysitting my granddaughter today & tomorrow. Yeah!! She is 20 months old now -- sheesh, they do grow up fast!!

Please tell me what you like or don't like about this paper pack. I create my papers at 2400x2400 because I have found that I NEVER need a paper that is larger than that (even for printing 12x12 layouts) and it is such a pain to resize everything down to 2400x2400. I'm just curious if any of you actually use papers that are larger than that??? Also, it makes the zip file a lot larger if the papers are 3600x3600. Maybe I'll put up a poll to see how many of you use bigger papers.

That's all for today folks. Once again, I hope you love my "GRUNGY SCREEN" paper pack ;)

WordArt Freebie

Sorry I am so late posting this....but here is some free Graduation wordart that I made for my son's graduation recently. Maybe someone else could use it too ;)

ENJOY!!! PS: Remember, let me know if you like it, hate it, etc. I'm fine with constructive criticism -- I'd rather know that I need to improve than to make things the wrong way!

Funky Flower Overlay!!

The second freebie -- not the same style, but hopefully it will appeal to some of you. This is a neat overlay - you can color it or use a paper you like to fill it--lots of options!! (PS: The blue paper is not included, just the overlay)

Don't worry, for you grunge-lovers, I have more grungy stuff that I'm working on!!! For those who asked for elements....whew, it may be a while before I attempt those but I am definitely inspired by all of your wonderful comments and I know how I'll be spending this coming weekend -- trying to make new stuff ;)

Thanks for the comments....I really do appreciate them so much!! Oh, and for those who were curious about the nickname...I'll save that for another day when I have time, gotta go to my real job now, unfortunately...


If you download the freebie, PLEASE leave a comment in my CBOX (upper right corner of the blog). Since I am brand new at this designing stuff, your feedback is very important to me. I need to know if you like it or hate it, LOL :)
I hope you enjoy the freebie. Check back often, I have LOTS more freebies lined up -- I just need to post them. Thanks!!!
