November already!!!

Wow!  Where has 2009 gone? It is so hard for me to believe that November is here already.  The count down is on towards Thanksgiving and  Christmas.  I am feeling so far behind.  Is there anyone else but me that is feeling overwhelmed by this?  I usually try to make our gifts for extended family and I haven’t even decided yet exactly what I am doing.

I do plan on making calendars for several people on my gift list.  My CT made this gorgeous and practical, easy to personalize calendar for me to sell in my shop at ScrapMatters.  It uses a variety of my kits and it turned out so nice.  They even made a non-Christmas December and two different Augusts.  You just need to pop pictures in place on the top page and personalize the bottom calendar grid with birthdays if you want.  Just click on the picture below to see it up close and personal in my shop at ScrapMatters.

If you want to make a personalized 2010 calendar but aren’t sure where to get started or how to insert pictures into the pages, please leave me a comment and I will be happy to help you.  The calendar is created using png files which should work in Microsoft Word, Publisher or probably even Microsoft Works.  The calendar files will also work in Paint Shop Pro, Creative Memories Storybook Creator Plus and a variety of other photo-editing programs.  Also if you create one I would love to see it.  Send me a link to where you have it posted.

HAPPY NOVEMBER ONE & ALL!

 

Fall Frolic–Funtastic Kit and Freebies from Andilynn Designs

Sorry!!! I know I told you I had a new digital scrapbook kit, some coordinating items and a freebie coming out yesterday.  I fully intended to write this post yesterday.  But the Kirby dog got sick and I spent quite a bit of time Thursday night and yesterday taking care of him.  So I am late again!  The story of my life, sometimes I wonder why I bite off so much, but I just can’t seem to help it.

So here are my new goodies for this week, all of the images are linked to their spot in my store at ScrapMatters.  I had such a blast making this kit.  It was kind of funny though the blue started out a lot more gray.  As the weather here in Seattle turned gray the gray started turning into blue.  I miss the blue skies.  The freebie is further down in the post, my not so subtle way of trying to get you to read to the end of  the post.

Fall Frolic Bonus Alphas by Andilynn Designs

Look at how my CT rocked this kit.  They came up with some fabulous LOs–the images are clickable so you can go give them some love if you want to.  But make sure you read to the end of the post for some good, old-fashioned savings on Fall Frolic–the kit and/or the word art and/or the bonus alphas.

I Have Such Terrific CTs!

My CTs are just terrific–both Andilynn Designs and ScrapMatters! I can’t believe how well they’ve rallied around and supported me while I’ve been recuperating from surgery, taking it upon themselves to promote my designs and the shop too.

Nonnie, Andilynn Designs CT leader, had these darling blinkies made for my CT to wear. Here’s mine, I was so surprised that she made one for me too!

And then Hedderlee, on the SM CT, started a thread for get-well cards for me in the SM forum. The gallery was flooded with get well cards! I was so surprised when I saw them for the first time at the hospital, I started to cry. I showed the cards to one of my nurses and she got teary-eyed too. You can take a peek at them here.

And through it all Britt, my right-hand woman, Shari and Happy Scrap Girl have been keeping things going and I am so grateful for them as well as the SM community at large and my family.

Thanks for taking time to read this, I’m just feeling grateful.
