Long Time No See……..

Posted in Kits by Linda Lloyd

Yes, I know, life has taken over, or should I say Christmas has taken over……. despite all my brilliant resolutions of making so many Christmas Cards each month so I would be prepared at Christmas, it just didn’t happen and so here I am, over a week into Christmas and I need to make Christmas Cards…… so unfortunately my blog has taken second place….. I do have loads to share, not so much new stuff as that is also on hold until Christmas is sorted….. but yesterday I went to see my little Grandson in his Nativity Play, he looked so cute, and a bit shocked as he wondered why I was calling him….. he was an angel….

Although he may look like an angel, he isn’t always…… lol, but he was very good in his Nativity Play…..

I have also added a new Paper Digital Kit to my shop, there are five papers in the set and they are a Damask Design, and they would be excellent for Christmas as they are in Christmassy Colours…..

You can find them in my shop here…

Hope to see you all back again tomorrow, I have some photographs to share with you….

See you then xx

 

Yes, it will soon be Christmas…. last day of freebie

Posted in Kits by Linda Lloyd

Yes, tomorrow you start opening your advent calendars and the countdown to Christmas begins…. just think, in a months time it will all be over and you will be looking forward to the New Year…. lol

So here is today’s freebie, its a bit special like promised….. its a WHOLE alphabet

Hope you like it….

Well yesterday and today I have been using my tumble dryer like mad…. boy have I missed it, and sod’s law it is nice and sunny out today so washing would probably have dried, unlike yesterday when the weather was dull and rainy.  Today my boys are off school due to a teachers strike so it is definitely a nice day for them to play out with their friends which makes a change as normally during the school holidays it rains most of the time….

Tomorrow I am releasing a new Digital Paper Kit, just a small one but I really like it so don’t forget to check back then to see what I have for you….

Take care and have a great day…. xx

 

Day 29 Freebie…. what am I going to do..

Posted in Kits by Linda Lloyd

When I have to think up original blog post titles again…….

I thought after posting my post yesterday that maybe you thought my little boy always looked muddy like that, so I am posting a photo today of him with his brother and dad, and he is definitely looking decidedly smarter….. lol

He is the smallest one and his hair was a lot shorter then too….. it is also shorter now…. lol

So today is day 29, nearly nearly there…. am busy putting all the freebies together to make up a kit at the moment….. todays freebie is a patterned paper….  there is something a bit special tomorrow as it is the last day so check back then, and don’t forget I will be removing all free links 48 hours after the last post….

After being told last Friday that my tumble dryer man wouldn’t be around to fix it until this Friday, there was a change of heart and he came round today, he has been sent from Devon (which is around 200 miles at least from here) for the week to cover for the man who is off sick…. and he has fixed everything, and whilst he was looking, just an offhand comment I made, made him look at my condenser part of the dryer which he said is warped and he will get a new one sent out to me, so really I have had nearly a whole new tumble dryer today apart from some of the outer casing….. can’t be bad, and it is working fine as I had washing lined up ready to dry….. ha ha

Don’t forget to check back tomorrow…. see you all then xx

Day 28, and my little boys birthday…..

Posted in Kits by Linda Lloyd

Well he isn’t quite so little anymore, he is 9 today and he wanted a DS game for his birthday so that is what we got him…. after a quick play before school he said… it is a bit difficult….. lol.  I am sure he will soon get the hang of it…. before school I asked him if there was anything special he would like cooked for dinner tonight as I always try to cook their favourite meal for them on their birthday, and he first of all asked for steak and chips, then changed his mind to McDonalds and then again to burger and chips, or should I have chicken nuggets and chips, for thankfully with a bit of help from his 10 year old brother he changed his mind yet again to steak and chips with onion rings please…. so that is what we have.  I also got him a birthday cake, they don’t really like those cakes that are themed and are jam and sugar filled, we tend to buy a gateau or something like that, but I found a Mississipi Mud Pie and thought he would love that…. maybe I should show you the photo of him in the summer after he had finished digging and watering my neighbours garden….

I’m not sure those clothes were ever the same after that…….

So today is day 28 freebie, 2 more left after today….. today I have got an overlay for you….. it doesn’t show up really well on the preview as I faded it out a bit, but download it and see what you think….

Actually you can hardly see it at all on here but it is much deeper in real life, I probably faded that out by at least 50%…..  you know the score, if you have missed any click on the calendar on the right hand toolbar to bring up the blog post of the day you have missed…. only 2 days left and I will be removing all free links 48 hours after my last post…..

See you all tomorrow, have a great day….

4 more freebie days to go…..

Posted in Kits by Linda Lloyd

Yep thats it folks, just 4 more freebies… hope you have enjoyed the ones you have got and I would love to see what you have made with them….. so please leave me a comment so I can go look, I will even link your blog from that days post so you get extra traffic there that day……

So today is day 27, and today I have a swirl for you……

Tomorrow is my little boys birthday, I haven’t made his card yet but have started it, I will sort it out later and try to remember to photograph it and show it to you tomorrow…..  I have just got a new cartridge for my cricut imagine called Buccaneer and it is full of pirates, so am thinking of making one for his card…. I have also already made a small envelope filled with moustaches and I will put a sticky pad on each so he can wear them when he likes, he will love them as his dad has a moustache…. rofl.

I actually have a very long list of to do things, and I really need to get started on them tomorrow…. I already have plans for a couple of Christmas Digital Kits, plus December is a nightmare for birthdays….. already need 10 birthday and thank you cards without making my own Christmas Cards…… ho hum… I need to get more organised….. I also have loads of plans for the new year which I hope to put into practise….. I really need to use my life coaching skills on myself…..

So until tomorrow, have a great day, take care… xx

Day 26 Freebie….. and a lovely breakfast

Posted in Kits,Special Offers by Linda Lloyd

I woke up quite early this morning and tossed and turned a bit and realised there was no way I was going back to sleep so I got up and DH followed very quickly after, so we decided we would go to our local Beefeater (which isn’t really local, about 15 miles away) and have their yummy eat as much as you like breakfast…. it costs £7.99 an adult and all 3 children eat for free….. so we tucked in to cereal, crumpets, toast, bacon, sausages, eggs, mushrooms, baked beans, yoghurt, muffins and probably more and are now still stuffed to the eyeballs…. but it was a bargain…. lol, we have some cream cakes for supper if we are hungry…. (did I ever tell you about my healthy diet?… ha ha).

We then strolled around a few shops, bought some Glow Plugs for DHs car which he is outside trying to fix at the moment, we looked  in the pet shop and everyone wanted to bring a new pet home, the children wanted guinea pigs, rabbits and fish, I wanted the degus and a bearded dragon, but we resisted and came home with nothing…. we already have 3 dogs, 4 cats, a crab and a tortoise… but we need to rehome one of our dogs….. she often gets quite vicious to the other dogs and has even gone for DH once so I am very worried about the kids, because of this the dogs spend most of the day outside, (they have a massive shed for a kennel with warm blankets etc) but it really isn’t fair, but we are not sure whether we should really rehome the dog incase she is vicious to someone else or what to do…. big dilemma…

Hoping to go to cinema later, but not looking good as DH is having real problems fitting his glow plugs and we need to leave in an hour to get to the showing, we were going to see Dream House, I remember seeing a film back in the 70s with the same name but I don’t think they are alike, the film in the 70s was a B film, back when they showed 2 films at a showing….

Anyway, enough waffling, here is todays freebie…

Another patterned paper for you.  I have activated another 3 BLACKFRIDAY codes for my shop for the first 3 people who go along and purchase something…. the voucher is for $2 and there are lots of kits for under $2 in my shop at the moment as I also have a 60% off sale through until Monday….. take a look and pick yourself up something for nothing if you are quick….

Have a great day, see you all tomorrow…. xx

Black Friday Offer……. and freebie giveaway….

Posted in Kits,Special Offers by Linda Lloyd

I hope you all had an awesome day yesterday….. lots of yummy food and good company…. and lets hope you took loads of photographs to scrap.

I am not in the best of moods…. my tumble dryer blew up last Tuesday, it started to make the most awful noise, I thought my neighbour was angle grinding and went to be nosey and realised it was my tumble dryer.  I turned it off and when I went to turn it back on it wouldn’t work, just an awful smell of the motor burning… lucky we have a breakdown insurance on it so we called Curry’s to arrange a visit.  The man came out very quickly, two days later actually which is within their guidelines, but where it says they can often fix it with the stock they carry on their vans, he couldn’t.  The motor had burnt out (is that really that unusual?)… so he said he would order a new motor, a new water collecting bottle as ours has leaked and rotted the floor underneath it (never realised until we pulled it out as it is right at the bottom), and the door catch has apparently snapped which I also hadn’t noticed.  He told me he would be back this Thursday or Friday.  DH rung them yesterday and they said that the repair man was supposed to have come yesterday (how was I supposed to have guessed that?) but that he was off sick and so no one would be coming until NEXT Friday….. WTH?  They have the bits so DH told them to send them to us and we would fit them, they wouldn’t….. so that is another week without a tumble dryer.  I must admit I have no washing line, everything goes in the dryer so with 3 boys and me and DH we have lots of washing to dry…. ho hum!!

So back today and I thought I would run a deal for Black Friday….. but first let me tell you about my Day 25 Freebie…. it is a Leaf Sprinkle…

I hope you like it, don’t forget if you have missed any all you need to do is click on the date you have missed on the calendar in the right hand sidebar and download from the appropriate blog post.  I will be removing all links 24 hours after Day 30 goes live, so make sure you keep up to date.

Right, Black Friday, I have a code BLACKFRIDAY that you can enter in the coupon code box in my shop and it will give you $2 off your purchase, or buy something for free….. and there is a lot in my shop at the moment that is under $2 as I have also reduced all items by 60% from today through to Monday….. but here is the catch, only 3 people can use the codes and then they will stop working…. so you need to be quick…. if they go quickly I may just post another offer, so keep checking my Facebook page for more details….

See you all tomorrow, hope you have a great day shopping…. xx

 

Happy Thanksgiving to all my US Readers….

Posted in Kits by Linda Lloyd

Happy Thanksgiving to all my US readers, I hope you have a really fun filled awesome day with your family and friends.

Check back tomorrow for a Black Friday sale in my shop and check out my Facebook also for another great offer…..  here is today’s freebie, it is a cluster…..

Tonight we are off to our pub quiz again,  we have our voucher we won last week so we should get a free drink each which is nice…. but we do get 5 points deducted this week for winning last week so it doesn’t appear likely that we will win again, but we go along for the fun anyway, winning is a bonus.

So day 25 tomorrow….. nearly finished now… don’t forget to check back then…. have a great day… xx

 

 

 

Normal service has resumed…… lol

Posted in Kits by Linda Lloyd

Hi everyone, normal service has resumed today, at least I think so…. managed to go shopping on my own, only wanted to buy some yummy bits for our church meeting tonight as our Pastors are away at Pastor’s Conference and they sometimes bring the yummy stuff, so just wanted to be organised…. and as usual I always spend way to much but never mind, at least no one will go hungry or without….. ha ha.

My little boy wants a netbook for Christmas, he has decided now for sure and we saw one in Sainsburys about 2 weeks ago, it was such a bargain that I told DH to buy it, but we didn’t as son couldn’t make up his mind, now the problem arises that this particular one was £129, about the same as the bike that my other son wants so was within budget, now they are out of stock there as they were selling them off and the next cheapest I can find is £189 which is way out of budget, so what to do now….. guess I will have to keep searching, maybe I will need to revisit the Sainsbury’s tomorrow to check it out, just incase….

And here we are at day 23, today we have another Patterned Paper…..

Hope you like it, the pattern isn’t too  large so it should have quite a few uses…..

Tonight as I mentioned earlier is Church night, and is also the last week of the book we were doing The Purpose Driven Life….. I think everyone has enjoyed it, we intend to hand out forms for feedback and we will be starting a new book next week….. should be interesting….

Have a great day everyone, the sun came out here for a little while, so that was really nice…. take care xxx

Busy Day and Day 22 Freebie…

Posted in Kits by Linda Lloyd

Phew, have I been busy looking after my 2 year old grandson today with no distraction of a toddler group….. he fell asleep this morning so I laid him down, covered him up and retreated to my room with a cup of coffee and he woke up less than 30 minutes later….. bah!!!  So today we have watched (read that as I have watched) Ice Age 2, Cloudy with Meatballs and the one that he actually watched was Kung Fu Panda….. and he fell asleep again 10 minutes before the school run……  hopefully he will sleep well tonight.  His brother went to hospital today for his operation, he was first down this afternoon and is now sitting up pressing buttons on his bed and I have just spoken to him on the phone…. he has to have his obs taken in an hours time but hopefully after that they will be allowed home….. unfortunately it takes over 2 hours to get home from London to here so  looks like little grandson will be coming to cubs with us this evening….. lol.

My son’s assembly for today was cancelled and rescheduled for 1st December, so have that to look forward to.  Son of 15 has Friday off school for inset day, then all three of them possibly have the following Wednesday off as the teachers are going on strike…… the weeks are just passing waaaaaay to quickly…..

Freebie day 22 today, you can download the freebie from here…..  todays is a autumnal frame…..

Have any of you checked out the Amazon Black Friday bargains this week, some of them are totally rubbish but I managed to pick up an x box game for my son for Christmas last night at a bargain price of £10.50….. so I was really pleased with that.  Thats about it for today, have a great evening, take care. xx
