Christmas Feelings Everyday?

Wouldn't it be nice if Christians treated everyday like they do Christmas? We are all wandering around wishing everyone a merry day and peace on earth, goodwill toward men. I think it would be wonderful, to care and love each other in that way and maybe it would even spill over onto other religion's worshipers and to animals too. What a wonderful world it would be! No matter your religious affiliation or lack thereof, I hope you have had an awesome love and joy filled week!

This week's blog gift is a calendar for the month of January 2014; this week's newsletter gift will be a calendar for the month of February 2014. I will be adding the rest of 2014's calendar pages as the year progresses but if you don't want to wait, I plan on putting the set into my stores soon.

Just a reminder:  I am taking a break for January and February so there will not be any more Sunday freebies until March. The newsletter will go out next week and the first week of February so we will still have the Loyalty Lottery.

Remember to have your pets spayed or neutered!

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Hello Scrapbooking Fans! 

Well, another week has come and gone and Christmas is almost here! Yesterday was the first day of winter for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere but down here in the Carolinas it was like a balmy day in June! The weatherman has promised us winter like temperatures for Christmas day; hope he is correct!

Are you ready for your winter or summer holiday? I seem to have done all the damage I can to my purse with only the cooking left to prepare.  It ought to be an interesting experience with a new member of my household in attendance!  I guess I will have to move Miss Minnie's playpen into the kitchen so she can watch me and not get upset from separation anxiety!

This weekend's gifts are papers that I made using photos from Chris's garden.  I am calling them Pink Christmas because they seem so festive to me. Three are yours today and if you receive my newsletter you will get 3 additional ones tomorrow. Please click on the link below the preview.

I hope you have a wonderful, love filled holiday, not matter what you are celebrating! Till next week . . .

Remember to spay and neuter your pets and if you don't have one yet, Adopt NOT Shop!

Sunday Blog Gift Time!

Hello y'all,

How was your week? Mine has been cold and rainy. I certainly don't mind the cold but I do mind the constant rain. Ms Minnie doesn't like the rain at all, she absolutely refuses to go out in it even when I hold an umbrella over the silly little thing!

I have some new photos of my great grandson Jase and thought I'd share with you.  He really is cute and reminds me of his Aunt Tabitha much more than his daddy or mommy.

This Sunday's Blog Gift is a matching set of paper and journal card and they also match my new kit Sweets. Hope you like these and get the kit to go with them. This week's Newsletter Gift is another matching set so be sure and sign up and confirm your newsletter subscription. I feel really bad about a lot of folks who signed up but don't receive the newsletter simply because they didn't confirm the subscription-no confirmation-no newsletter that's the web rules.  Here are the previews of this weekend's gifts; just click the link under the Sunday Blog Gift preview to download your copy.

Here is the newsletter gift for tomorrow:

Hoping you will have an awesome week!

Don't forget to spay and neuter your pets and if you want a new family member remember to adopt NOT shop!

Gift Time!

Hello Blog Friends,

What a week it has been in my little world, Miss Minnie has kept me busy for sure. She clung to me for the first 3 days and then on Wednesday afternoon she actually layed on the sofa while I was on the PC!  She still won't let me leave her sight without getting upset so we still have a lot to get used to and to work on. Now my kitty, Peaches, doesn't want to be around me now because I always smell of dog so she stays upstairs when I go up to the den to watch the telly or to the kitchen to eat; she will not budge! I am hoping that she will soon get over this feeling of betrayal and condescend to be around me again :)

I made some little charms for your Christmas or Hanukkah layouts, I hope you like them. Just click on the link under the preview to download.

Thanks for coming by!

Sunday's Free Gift!

Hello Friends,

I have to let you in on something that has happened to me this week! I got my first canine furbaby in 40 years! I picked her up from the rescue late Saturday afternoon and she is such a sweetie! She is a tiny, 3 pound, Chihuahua that thinks she is a big dog and is as stubborn and vocal as all Chi's are! I am so happy to have found this little girl because I fell in love with another one last week and we just could not get her to me before someone else got her, her name was Rosie and she was an adorable little Chi too.  I think that things happen for a reason and this little Minnie Mouse was supposed to be mine all along. Her foster mother has named her Mouse and I wanted to leave that but give her something feminine so Minnie it is and Minnie Mouse when she's in trouble!

It is after 2am here and I just got your blog gift finished because Miss Minnie didn't want my attention anywhere but on her!  I promised to give you a gift this Sunday that was worth the wait, I made you two Christmas tags that are printable for your packages.  I hope you like these as I almost had to apologize again for not being able to make anything. Just click on the link under the preview to download yours!

Thanks for hanging with me!

I'm Sorry!

Hello folks,
I am so sorry that I flaked out sick on you and didn't follow through with my usual Sunday blog post or even my usual Monday newsletter. I will have to skip them both for this week as my eye and my back are both out of commission for right now.  It is not conducive to designing to have an eye you cannot see out of!  I will try and make it up to you with next week's gift and newsletter freebie.
Take care and stay warm, or cool, depending on your location!

Here is your Sunday Blog Gift

Hello friends,

This post seems so trivial under the current circumstances in our world; I cannot imagine 10,000 people dead from anything, even a typhoon. My heart is heavy trying to come to terms with this and I am nowhere near the Philippines nor do I have any family in that area.  I also wonder how many thousands of animals have died. Lifting that entire part of the world in prayer and hope for those left behind.

Here is this week's blog gift:

In love,

Time for the Sunday Freebie!

Hello y'all!

That time of week for you to collect your blog gift for being a loyal CLGraphics fan!  If you are looking for the DST Blog Train it is in the preceding post!

Can you believe it is November? Time just zooms by for me and I wish I could put it in low gear for a while! LOL! My youngest grandchild is now fourteen and my oldest just had his first child, a son whom they named Jase. My other little great grandson dressed up for Halloween this year and he was just adorable as the mighty Spiderman! He is only 28 months old but such a pistol! My daughter took him to her church festival and he had such a great time but he was sooooo tired he conked out on the short drive to his Nana's house! If you celebrate Halloween I hope you enjoyed it and got lots of photos to scrap with.

This is our Gavin!

This is Gavin sacked out beside his Papa Ron and one of my daughter's rescue dogs, Conrad.

This week's blog gift is a frame cluster in bright basic colors as I was getting tired of all the fall oranges, yellows, and reds. This week's newsletter gift is a matching 3 frame cluster so be sure and sign up to get you one.  Oh and don't forget, the first Monday of each month is the Loyalty Lottery and that means that the winner will be announced in this week's newsletter!  Here is your blog gift, just click on the link under the preview to download!

This is the newsletter gift:

Remember to Adopt, don't shop for your next furry friend! 
Make sure you spay or neuter all of your pets to keep them safe.

Sunday Blogger Gift Time!

Hello friends and fans! First let me say that if you are looking for the blog trains, check out the post prior to this one!

I feel safer this week even if I am somewhat poorer! My almost son-in-law installed a new front door package for me on Friday that has been needing to be replaced for a very long time! My daughter picked it out and ordered it for me and Ron and a friend put it in, all I had to do was pay for it! The old door was so rotted that if someone wanted to get in all they had to do was give it a good shove and . . .

I have been working on items for the specialty categories at Digi Style Designs, Heartfelt Perfections, and Berry Applicious. The make your own kit categories have pieces and parts you can pick and choose from at lower than normal prices, you should check them out if you haven't before.  I am currently working on the HFP ones and I have posted these finished ones at DSD:

There is a free quickpage on my FaceBook Fan Page! Chris made it from my old kit Softly Spoken and an element from my 'in progress' kit Sweets. Drop by the page and get one!

That time of week again; I have a new blog gift for you. Going with the current Halloween theme, I have made you a card/package topper or you can use it for layouts. Hope you like this gift; just click on the link under the preview to download.

This week's newsletter gift is two more of these Halloween treats:

Enjoy your gifts and come back soon for more!
