Rosebud Freebie part 3

Here's the third and final installment of the Rosebud kit. I think this download has all the elements in it. You can grab it in my freebies section of my store here.
Next week, I'm back on the blog train with the ADSD group. We've put together a great collab called Chocolate Cherry. It will be great for your lovey-dovey stuff. I also tried to make mine with plenty of generic patterns and pieces so it would be pretty versatile. So be sure to check back on Feb 1st.
I'm sitting with my granddad most days now until my boys get home from school. It's hard because it leaves a gap of time that he's alone until my mom gets off from work. It's the best we can come up with right now. He starts chemo this Wednesday and we're hoping it goes ok for him.

Rosebud Freebie part2

Here's the next installment of the Rosebud kit. You can download it through my store here. I hope everyone is staying warm - the weather has just been bitter lately. And we haven't had it as bad as some! I'll be enjoying the MLK holiday today with my boys today snuggled up on the couch watching movies and staying toasty!
Also, thank you for the sweet thoughts and prayers about my granddad. They have been comforting to read. We found out last Friday that he has Stage 4 lung cancer. The doctor isn't sure he could tolerate chemo and that it only has a 50% chance of slowing the tumor growth. It's his decision on whether he wants to try chemo or not. Needless to say, it's been an emotional few days for the family with lots to think and worry about.
Until next week...

I'm back with good news, bad news, and a freebie

I’m finally back after being away for several weeks and I have so much to cover.

First, I have some good news. The Digital Scrap Mall has undergone some remodeling and it is now how it’s owner originally wanted it to be – with each designer having their own store front under the mall heading. It’s a very cool concept and it’s been so much fun setting up my own store! I’m so excited about it. There’s a separate section for freebie downloads so you don’t have to mess with a cart, a layout gallery and other goodies. So check it out at and look down below for my Grand Opening ad and coupon information.

Next up, I finally have a freebie for you after a many week hiatus. I think I’m going to try something different for a while. Instead of coming up with little unique freebies during the month, I will do a kit and share it in pieces as the weeks progress. This month we’re starting with Rosebud and you can go Here to get the first of three downloads. A preview of the full kit is down below.

Some other changes to my blog are that my freebies are no longer going to be free forever. Items will remain either at 4 shared or at my store’s download area for one month and then they will be moved to my dollar bin. That’s plenty of time to snag it and once it’s moved it’s still a good deal (especially when you have a coupon).

Lastly, on a personal note, my 87 yr old grandfather has been diagnosed with lung cancer and emphysema. He’s completing tests this week to determine the stage of the cancer and what his treatment options are for the future. With that said, I will try to maintain a weekly freebie download as much as possible and following up on any store issues as promptly as circumstances allow. Hopefully things won’t be disrupted too much but I’m sure everyone understands that family comes first.

Until next week…
