A Few Thoughts ...

Whew! Company is gone. Summer is definately a busy time because it seems you want to cram so many things in while the weather is nice. I think we might have a few days to get caught up with things now.

As I mentioned before we have no babies in our family. But my nephew and his fiance came down a few weekends ago and they are expecting in September. I'm looking forward to meeting my great-nephew or niece~!

A few thoughts ...

Almost everything that I design is because it would be something that I would use in a layout. But honestly, I have had no time to actually do any scrapbooking of my own. I spend hours on the computer designing freebies and items for LLL Creations Dollar Mart. My husband thinks I spend too much time on it and I have to be honest I do to. I rarely get a thanks and lately I'm not getting the same pleasure out of it like I used to. I'm going to continue to post for now but I don't think it will be as often as it has been which was mostly 3 times a week. I'm burning out. It's very time consuming and stressful trying to get the next item out to post, trying to think about what to do next and then spending litterly hours designing. With no feedback it sometimes seems pointless. I haven't read a book or just relaxed in many months. To you avid digital scrappers who run around grabbing everyone's freebies, I have this to say - There comes a point when people who give and give and give, become tired of giving. I'm sure in one hour you can litterly download weeks worth of others peoples work. Think about it and maybe appreciate it a little more.

Alright now on to other things.

I did manage to put this Party Word Art into LLL Creations Dollar Mart today.

You get 6 word art for only $1.00. You can get it here or through
LLL Creations Dollar Mart under the Word Art category.

And you only have until the end of tomorrow to take advantage of my promotion.

The freebie today is something I like to use in some layouts.

I love these photo corners. Thank you, Lil! I can understand your feelings and the time and effort you put into your creations, just don't give up completely. I enjoy your blog, your photos, your freebies and your shop with so many neat items, and I know others do too.

Thanks for the awesome photo corners. I've never tried thought to use anything like this since I'm new to doing layouts. I can't wait to play with them. Hugs, Wendy

Oh, gosh! It's "Carol"! Crol sounds a character in a video game! LOL We got a new computer, and the keyboard is much different, and I've been making more than my share of mistakes! :0)
