Yes it is day 14 already, where is this month going? I am gradually getting around to buying more Christmas Presents but at the moment I am not trying really hard. Will have to sit down with DH this week and get buying as he has the money, I have the ideas….. perfect team eh?
As promised, here is a photo of the snowing Christmas Tree, sorry it is a bit blurry but I think this is mainly because the snow is snowing and the photo was only taken on a phone, so nothing spectacular there…. but I hope you get the idea.
Todays freebie is some string, it comes in 2 colours so you can choose which one you want to use, or why not use both….. hope you like it….
Tomorrows offering will be some more Patterned Paper, so don’t forget to check back then…. have a great day
Hello, yes I preached and no one ran out of the church screaming or anything so I must have done something right (not that anyone has before but you never know)….. not even my 3 videos of roller coasters frightened people off….. lol. And incase you are wondering about roller coasters and my preach I will tell you. I preached about our fear of doing things and how most of the time our fear is irrational so we need to look to God who promised he would be with us always, and if God is for us who can be against us as God has already defeated Satan and no one is more powerful than God….. I felt that the really big hill at the beginning of the SAW roller coaster was a good example of the hills of fear that sometimes paralyse us from doing things, and that if we overcome that fear the things that follow are normally really good….
Anyway, on to today’s freebie… today it is a Journalling Tag, and there is plenty of room for any journalling you might want to do…. hope you like it…
I did see the snowing christmas tree yesterday and I have a photo of it but it is a bit blurry and needs some work doing to it so will post it tomorrow…. has definitely gone up in price this year though so won’t be buying one of those…. I did see some gorgeous decorations though, I wish I had the time and patience to make my whole house Christmassy, but although the mind is willing my body isn’t…. lol.
Check back tomorrow for another freebie, see you all then.
Not sure what to do today, haven’t got too much money with Christmas coming but cannot do Christmas shopping with 3 boys in tow, plus I do most of it online anyway….. am expecting a nice little strokeable parcel maybe today or Monday, just a little 6 x 6 pad which I thought I would treat myself too, sometimes I miss “real” making and I do need to get my Christmas Cards under way, plus daughter wants some Thank you cards and all I ever do is spend my time on my computer, so come Monday all that is going to change (ha ha maybe if I can get myself motivated)…. I have a plan!! And as I am a Life Coach you would think that I, at least, could make a workable plan….. we shall see. So my plan for today is to go to Sainsbury’s as someone I know says they have a sale on…. I just love looking at their home stuff for inspiration, so I can try and persuade myself that is why I am going there, plus we have a shop called The Range, now yes, I know they have craft stuff there, but I do also like to look at the Christmas Decorations and try and persuade myself why they would be any good in my house and then come home with nothing, which is what I did last year. They did have the cutest Christmas Tree last year though, it snowed….. can you believe it a snowing tree, if they have it today I will take a photo and post it on here, I think it would even make a good layout if I can discipline myself to make good layouts again… lol
Anyway enough waffle, I know you are all waiting for todays giveaway, so up to day 12 today, almost halfway through can you believe…. and today is…(hang on, just gotta check as I have forgotten… lol)… aaah yes, some cute little brads…..
There is one for each of the colours of the kit so they should be very useable…. hope you like them, I have some in “real life” that look just like that, just different colours…..
I am getting a bit nervous now as I am preaching in church tomorrow….. I have written my sermon, collected a video and photo to show and now I need to make sure the laptop and iPad are charged so I can use them, plus I guess I need to transfer the stuff from my iMac to my MacBook too….. will ask DH to do that later for me so I know it is done right (and if it isn’t I have someone else to blame…. lol).
Guess I should now get off of here and go and get ready to go out…. see you all tomorrow, have a great day today…
If you are looking for todays’s freebie, please click the date in the sidebar on the right to take you back a post or click here….
Just thought I would give you the heads up of a new kit that has just arrived in my store, it is called Part of the Family and has 5 Papers, Elements and a Full Alphabet which includes Upper and Lower Case Letters, Punctuation and Numbers, the alphabet is worth the $2 on its own, it is a lovely turquoise glitter and the upper case has a little added flower too…. here is the preview…. just click on the preview to find this item in my shop.
I hope you like it… It is available now and anyone who buys something from my shop, however small between now and 20th December will receive a little Christmas Present from me just before Christmas….. hows that for an incentive.
Have a great weekend, take care
Yes I really think it has started…. the countdown to Christmas. This month is just going by so very very fast and so yesterday I decided that it was about time I made a Christmas Shopping list, so I don’t think I have forgotten anyone and I have something written down for everyone…. now for the hard part, finding the money to buy it all….. ha ha. My 10 year old has asked for a drum set but I am thinking the neighbours will not appreciate that, these are the same neighbours that came round one Christmas and asked us to stop laughing so loudly as it was 11.30pm…… so a drum set…. nah, don’t even think about it. Plus it takes up tons of room that we don’t have. We do have a set of drum pads here and they make enough noise on that so I told him that if he learned to play them properly then we would consider a drum set at a later date…. might have to sort out the garage for them!! The 8 year old wants a bike so that shouldn’t be too difficult and the 15 year old wants money to buy a more expensive bike than I would buy him so that is easy too, so not doing too badly so far….
So today’s freebie is something a bit different, I have put together a splatter. You can use this to add a bit of extra interest to your layout, spin it, reflect it, copy it and use it…
I hope you like it, its the first time I have made one so I would be interested in what you thought of it…. Don’t forget I am giving away a freebie a day so check back over the weekend too for some more, I cannot promise they will always be posted early but I can promise they will be there…. and don’t worry, I am not running out of ideas, I have a working plan and have each day filled.
Have a great day and see you all tomorrow.
Take care, Linda xx
Oooooh I am late today, that is because I have been cooking since noon today and it is now 4.30pm, but I have cooked cherry cupcakes with cherry icing, glitter and flowers on the top and a chocolate cupcake with the most yummy chocolate topping with little silver stars, not sure if I will ever be able to get rid of them from my worktop, they seem to have gotten everywhere…. so I will post a photograph tomorrow of them, will photograph them before I go out (hopefully I will remember) as they are for our group at church tonight… wasn’t going to make any but I got a new cupcake book called Cupcakes with Lola and some of them are so absolutely lush, I love the sound of the baileys one too, might just have to treat myself for christmas….. mwah ha ha ha.
So today I have another freebie for you, the ninth freebie, and I have a few already sorted out to post in the next couple of days too, trying to be prepared as I still have to write my sermon for Sunday….. so here is today’s owl paper….
Tomorrow there will be more elements so keep an eye out for it.
I went to Hobbycraft this morning and bought some Christmas presents for the boys and the silver stars and a flower shape cutter which I used on the cupcakes, only reason I made them was to use my new purchases….. ha ha, how sad am I…
Hope to be back earlier tomorrow… cya then
Yes, can you believe we are on 8th November already, Christmas is arriving at a rate of knots and I have not even started thinking about Christmas yet, saying that I have bought three christmas presents and 3 packs of cards for the boys for school. I normally sit and make 70 cards for school, but I have come to realise that the children don’t appreciate the hard work I put into it, so this year they are getting shop bought ones……. less stress for me and the boys can start writing them as they are all ready for them…
And on to todays freebie, it is a couple of paper fasteners to add to the other 7 days of freebies, hope you like them….
I have some ideas coming together for a new digital kit which I hope to be released soon, I also have some Christmas Kits in mind, so watch this space.
Have a great day, take care and wrap up warm.
Today I thought I would play a game of Spot The Difference….. only joking really, there is a big difference between these two photographs, but there is one person in each pulling a face and it isn’t the same person….. why do they do this….. should make an interesting layout at some point though….. ha ha.
I think we gave up at this point…. lol. They were taken whilst we were queuing up for rides at Chessington World of Adventures on the Saturday before Halloween……. despite the faces an awesome day was had by all….
So on to todays freebie, I thought I would add some leaves to go with the acorns, the first leaves I did hubby said weren’t oak leaves, so I also did some oak leaves but have added both for the freebie as they can be used separately to the acorns if wanted…. so download todays offering to add to the others you have. I have decided not to disable the downloads until after the kit is complete as I have had a few people who have only just found this blog and want some of the older freebies, so thought I would leave (no pun intended) them until after it is finished. I will be taking them down on 2nd December though so collect the last ones quickly.
Hope you like them, don’t forget if you use any of it please post a link to your work in the comments box and I will link back to your blog from my following post….
Have a great evening, take care
Yes we saw some awesome fireworks last night but I never manage to take a photograph of them. We went to a friends house for fireworks, burgers, soup, curry and so much food, it was absolutely wonderful and we even brought a doggy bag home with us and have had jacket potatoes for lunch today….. on the way home from this friends house there was a big firework display going on just outside her road so we stopped and watched them too, you cannot beat the enormous fireworks they have at a big display, but it is always raining/expensive/very crowded (delete as appropriate) so we rarely ever go…. and it was flipping cold last night too….
We have been to church this morning and next week I am preaching….. aaargh, I always get so nervous although I have had a preach in mind for quite a few months now, something to do with the SAW ride at Thorpe Park and overcoming huge mountains in your path…… lol, it makes sense to me anyway…
So for todays freebie I have drawn some acorns….. started off with some stylised ones, but couldn’t make any leaves that matched properly, so have just finished up with drawn acorns…. hope you like them.
Hope you like them and I will be back tomorrow with another freebie….. I am off to sit in bed in a minute and watch the football, I am still freezing cold, may be time to put the heating on soon…..
Take care, enjoy yourselves.
