W, X & Z

New Years Eve, I'm fortunate enough to work only half a day and have New Years Day off. I'm expecting my Brother-in-law and Sister-in-law along with Charlotte their daughter today. Love having them here as Charlotte is very sweet and Catherine and I could spend hours browsing the bookstore or window shopping. Enjoy the last of the alphabet Ornaments.

U & V

Almost done the set and I will be leaving them up so you don't have to worry about my removing any of them just yet. Lots of room on 4shared still so don't worry about them going anywhere till sometime late in January. I'll let you all know ahead of time after that I will put them up in the store.

P & Q

Okay so I'm cheating since I'm sharing a laptop right now with Sean and the extra kids in the house this week. I've created the remainder of the ornaments Sunday while Sean is swimming with TC at the base, Robert is busy watching TV and Alex is cleaning her room. Wow, silence is golden after the commotion of the past few days. Monday I'm back to work and Sean is off with the kids but has to drive two and a half hours one way to get his daughter Alora and luckily is off the rest of the week with them!

I think I'm going to enjoy being at work during the day!

I'm terribly sorry for not posting sooner. I really wanted to get the rest of these ornaments uploaded before Christmas however there were a few problems before the holidays. One major issue became the LACK of a computer. My father wanted to get my mom a laptop for Christmas and mine is only two years old and in good shape so Sean suggested that I give her mine and he buy me a new one since I'm using it for alot more these days. I format ed mine and wrapped it up for her, and then searched high and low for for my Photoshop CS3 disk so I could install it on Sean's laptop. Do you think I could find where I put the disk so I wouldn't loose it? LOL. Finally found it last night and now I can finish my ornaments for you.

I still don't have a laptop but we are going to Ottawa in a few weeks. A weekend holiday before Sean begins training to be deployed. I thought it would be nice to go to Ottawa so that we can use the new climbing harness I got for Christmas and go skating on the Rideau Canal and eat hot Beaver Tails with Cinnamon and sugar. Hmmmm!

L & Mele Kalikimaka

I had a request from Leilani who lives in Hawaii for an ornament with Mele Kalikimaka on it which is Merry Christmas in Hawaiian. I'm envious since we have a couple feet of snow and I'm sure she is enjoying the sunshine. I am also posting the ornament with the initial L on it.

I'd like to say thank you to everyone that left comments regarding Alex singing, I still do not have the Video her brother took but I do hope to post it soon. I was so nervous but she did a wonderful job and her friends were amazing. They created T-Shirts with her name and then did posters to bring saying "Vote for Alex" She didn't win but had allot of fun and I believe it boosted her confidence. Which is always a bonus.

Enjoy tonight's freebies and I have more for you tomorrow night.

Bell ExpressVu Ch 247

So there is no freebie tonight as I was busy earlier this evening with my daughter Alexandra. We were at rehearsal for the Northern Ontario Has Talent Competition.
She will be singing Saturday at 2:43PM on Channel 247 on Bell ExpressVu. I encourage everyone to watch and donate to a worthy cause, as the talent competition she is in is part of the CTV Lions Christmas Telethon. Monies raised go towards food baskets that are delivered to needy families in Northern Ontario.
I will be back tomorrow with more freebies as I will have a few hours to wait in the afternoon and early evening before the results are in for the talent portion. I may even video tape it and post on the blog her portion....if I can get it to tape okay.
Thanks and wish Alex luck!

J & K and Son & Daughter

As promised here are the #1 Son and #1 Daughter Ornaments as well as the J & K Ornaments. Its another snowy day here today, Monday gave us 10 inches and we are expecting 9 more inches today. I'm so thankful that when Sean is deployed next year it will be for the summer months... I'd hate to have to shovel snow for months on end.
Yes, you heard me right, Sean is being deployed and going on tour. That was his welcome home e-mail from his boss's. Even though he doesn't leave until June he will be gone a fair bit starting in February doing training and preparing for his tour. I'm thankful he will be home though in time for Christmas next year as his return date is December 21st, 2009. I think the kids and I can manage him missing Birthdays, Thanksgiving and all the in between holidays as long as he is home for Christmas.

B D F Ornament Freebies

Here are a few more ornaments as part of the Initials Ornament Series I started. I have a quiet day ahead of me tomorrow so I should have plenty of time to get a few more of these and a few special ones uploaded during the day tomorrow. I'm looking at doing #1 Son and #1 Daughter as part of my freebies tomorrow along with the Initials.

Instead of having the freebies tonight offered one by one in individual zip'd files tonight's are in just one file.

Just wanted to apologize for no freebie today. I have a migraine and am just going to avoid the glare of my screen tonight. I will post twice as much tomorrow. Thank you for understanding and I hope you enjoy the ADSD Holidays at Home collaboration kits everyone created. I am also going to be participating in the "Holly Jolly Express" collaboration on December 15th so there will be plenty more freebies in the upcoming days.

ADSD Holidays at Home Collab Kit

I almost forgot about this Collaboration, I couldn't believe it when Friday night I was looking at my blog and then checked the blog roll list for the collaboration thinking...did I sign up for that? Guess I did. lol

The files are separated into two downloads. One for papers and the other for elements. I hope you enjoy both. I'll be back with more initials ornaments tomorrow.

Feliz Navidad & H

First of all I have to appologize if some of you tried to download the Mr & Mrs Ornament along with the letter C. Somehow I accidently password protected the files when I was trying to password protect a special file for the weekend.
The file I was protecting was this coming weekends posts. I have permission from Pam at Digitreats to create some special ornaments using her Run, Skip and Jump colours. I sent Pam the previews today and was protecting them until the weekend. So watch for my posts on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Our First Christmas as Mr & Mrs along with "C"

Tonight's freebie was a request from Shar, who asked for a light blue ornament with "Our First Christmas as Mr & Mrs" and the letter C. I hope many of you can use these to your Christmas Pages.
This is going to be a quick post as I'm going to head out shortly to have a late dinner with Sean. His welcome back to work message was pretty much Welcome Home oh guess what, your going on Tour from June 1 to December 21 next year and before you go, your going to be gone for training so we are going to be apart more than the 32 weeks of his tour. Therefor, I'm going to advantage of all the chances we have to spend together now while we can.

Buone Feste Natalizie & Y

"Buone Feste Natalizie" for those that don't know it is Italian for Merry Christmas. I have the letter Y as your freebie for tonight. As I stated before I'm going to work on spelling out "Merry Christmas" first and then work on the rest of the alphabet. I'm not sure what other languages I'll create ornaments but if you let me know which ones you want, I'll see what I can create.
Tomorrow night I will be posting an ornament that was requested by Shar...she asked for a light blue ornament that says " Our First Christmas as Mr & Mrs"

Joyeux Noël & R

Continuing the trend of Merry Christmas in other languages, tonight we have French and our initial is R. I'm working on spelling out Merry Christmas first and then I'll get to the other letters of the alphabet.

We have a few inches of snow here, its been nice and cold the past week and I'm so glad I have the weekend to look forward to. I hope to get plenty done for the blog and post another kit to the stores.

I'd like to thank everyone for the suggestions for ornaments and sayings. I'll work on those this weekend and see what other surprises I can come up with for everyone.

Fröhliche Weihnachten & E

For those of you who didn't catch that "Fröhliche Weihnachten" is Merry Christmas in German. I am going to be creating a few special ornaments with different sayings and words on them along with the Initials. Since Christmas is just around the corner...I figure I better hand out more than one at a time if you are going to get the whole set before the holidays.

If your interested in how "Merry Christmas" is said around the world, why don't you check out this page

Initial's Ornaments

Okay, so I've decided that yes I will create ornaments with initials on them. I'm going to start with the letter G. They will not be given in order but every letter will be given out.

Christmas 2008 Freebie

I'm going to make this a quick post tonight as I just got home from seeing a movie with Sean and just am feeling a bit under the weather. We saw "Quantum of Solace" and I really enjoyed it. I just wish that I had watched Casino Royal right before we had gone to see this as the story continues from the day after Vespa has died.

I'm also trying to do two things at once here, post my blog and entertain my sugar glidder Buttercup that is in a pouch on my lap and keeps poping her head out to see where her sister Peanut went (she decided to head back to her cage. Did you catch that...thier names are Peanut & Buttercup- I thought it was cute)

So tonights freebie is another ornament I really didn't get a response as to if anyone liked the idea of ornaments with initials on it Let me know what you think.

I wanted to respond to a comment that was made regarding the reindeer I had created for my DSO kit. Someone suggest that I should not be using Digitreats Reindeer and claim them as my own work. I appreciate peeople that watch out for pirates and for people claiming someone elses work as thier own as this shows me they would do they would respect my work as well. I'd like to assure everyone that Digitreats and I both purchased the same commercial use products to create the reindeer. If you would like further details... please feel free to e-mail me or contact Pam at Digitreats, I'm sure she would be happy to confirm that she is also using a commercial product to create her reindeer.

Sean is Home & A Freebie

It has been a busy day. Sean arrived home at midnight and we were up early with the kids. It was a busy day as it was also my best friend Mary's Birthday. I hadn't spoken to her the past few days and her husband works out of town, he is also in the military but works on another base two and a half hours from here. I guess by lunch she was feeling a little blue .... (she is also pregnant) because no one had remembered her Birthday. However Sean and I arrived with a Birthday Gift and cake and coffee and flowers for her. She started to cry... and cried even more when more flowers arrived and a note asking her out for dinner tonight... Her husband was coming home early to take her out for her Birthday.

Other than that... it was a long day so tonight will be an early night. I'm going to feed my girls... (I have to sugar gliders as pets) and my cuddle with my Ferret before I head off to bed. I'm back to work tomorrow as I took the day off today.
So your freebie tonight is ribbons in the Birth Month colours. You can use them on the ornaments or however you please.

As always items were created at 300 dpi, in .png format in a zip'd file

I'll be back with more ornaments on the weekend. What do you think of ornaments that have your initials on them? Let me know if you would like that as its one idea I'm tossing around.

DSO Colour Challenge & Sean Comes Home Tonight!

Okay, so I'm very excited as Sean will be home tonight after being gone for six weeks. It was a busy day though and it helped pass the time.
Tonight's Freebie is part of the DSO Colour Challenge that is held every month. I absolutely loved the colours this month and the posting bonus is absolutely beautiful. I couldn't miss out. If you have the time you should check out thier blog and forum. They have some wonderful events going on.
Here is a preview of my MiniKit. I have included an ornament hook as part of the kit and another ornament of course. I have a few in mind to give in the upcoming weeks. I was also thinking of doing some with Initials. What do you think?

Items were created at 300dpi, in .png format (except the paper) and are in a zip'd folder.

Last but NOT least.....July

I saved the July Ornament for last since I'm a July Baby! Tomorrow I will be posting my DSO Colour Challenge Mini Kit which will also have an ornament and an ornament hook you can use with any of my ornaments. I will be posting a little earlier than usual tomorrow evening as Sean will finally be home. Its hard to believe six weeks have gone by already...mind you there were plenty of times that it didn't seem to go by quickly enough

So it was a busy day today. Alex woke up too sick to go to school so I was home with her this morning, then I went into work and was busy until I touched a drawer handle in my boss's office and went into anaphylaxis. (I'm allergic to ALOE of all things and there was hand cream still on the drawer handle) I broke out in hives to my complete body in minutes and lucky for me I had medication on hand that I took as soon as I realized that the residue on the drawer handle might contain aloe - even before the hives showed or the breathing difficulty. Needless to say my boss felt terrible and drove me home immediately. I told her not to feel badly, everyone seems to have taken thier turn getting me. I'm just worried about getting caught one day with that new toilet paper that contains aloe.... wouldn't that just be a hoot... An allergic reaction after wiping your no one ever thought that would happen some day!

So then I had my online class over at Scrap Girls and when I was done that.... I had to get Alex's songs ready for the TV station. Since she was a late entry, I have until Thursday to bring it down there.

My blog writting tonight is my break from housework as Sean comes home in about 50 hours and thanks to my oldest Daughter Tanya we managed to steam clean the carpets on the weekend while everyone else was out. The kids even though they are feeling a little under the weather did thier chores tonight and helped get a few more things done around here. I even managed to wash the floors on the main floor.... an no one has spilled anything on them yet. Even the feret decided not to drop anything on the floor after having managed to get up on our kitchen counter tonight.

Okay so tonights freebie that you have been waiting for....

New Store Items and a Freebie of course!

I had been selling at Digital Scrapin Store however Lorie has been spending so much time runing the store and forum that she has decided come the end of November to go solo so she can spend more time designing instead of managing a store.

Now I don't know how much you know about setting up a store but from what I have discoverd the store takes a percentage of what you sell and so does pay-pal. In knowing that I have decided for the time being that I will offer my items at a discounted rate on my own site, cut out the middle man so to speak and pass on the savings to you my customers.

You can click on the link My Store to the right to see what I have available.
Here is a preview of the two new kits I have for sale. Both are S4H/S4O and CU Friendly.

Both are available for $3.50 USD each.
Purchase Here for $3.50

Purchase Here for $3.50

Tonights Freebie is another in the series of Baby Ornaments-The April Boy Ornament.

6 More Sleeps & the August Ornament Freebie

A quiet day today. Was very busy at work all day and it looks like it will be a busy day again tomorrow. I can't believe how beautiful the weather is here again today. This time of year we are usually seeing the temperature at about 0 but it was 19 here today. Amazing and hope we continue the trend however the forecast does not look good.

Sean comes home in "Six more sleeps". I know its silly that as adults we keep track of days until we are together again like we use to with the kids. Its just something that has stuck though and I think its kind of sweet.

Okay so here is the August Freebie for anyone who has had an August Baby! I'm still looking for suggestions on what else to write on the ornaments... so feel free to leave your comments. Once I have posted all the "Baby" ornaments I will offer your suggestions if possible.

January Ornament Freebie

Well, less than a week to go before Sean comes home. I can hardly wait!

So.... I got pulled over again today by the cops. Really I'm not that bad of a driver. First of all this is my bike. Yes it looks like a gas scooter similar to Vespa's and such however ... its not.

So here I am getting ready to make a left hand turn at the lights in front of where I work and a minivan pulls up next to me and the driver looks over and says, "Hi, how you doing?" I in return said "Great, you?" Then he proceeds to flash his badge at me and asks "How many laws do you think your breaking right now?" I of course started to laugh and told him, "Actually, none... this is a power assisted bicycle and if you want to sort this out, I'm pulling in here where I work and I can give you all the details."

I guess since I didn't have a license plate, was wearing a bicycle helmet and was riding close to the right hand side of the lane he felt I was breaking a few laws. In reality I wasn't since here in Ontario and eight other Provinces all that is required to drive one of these is to be 16, wear a bicycle helmet and not drive on major highways. You don't need insurance, plates, drivers license or motorcycle helmet to drive one of these things. Want more information, check out Greenwit Tech, Motorino CA

Okay so tonight's freebie is the January Ornament which is Alora's Birth Month. When I met her and her Dad, she was a tiny girl, she is 14 now but as tall as her dad... and not a little girl anymore. She is all grown up and doesn't look her age, especially when she dresses up.

And before I forget, the font I use is Edwardian Script, ITC I googled it and a free one can be found here but I cannot guarantee is an exact match (although it does look the same from what I can see from the preview) the one I have is from ITC Fonts.

Working my way through the kids Birth Months

Okay, so far I've given away four out of six kids birth months ornaments. Tanya who is 20 was in April, Robert aged 17 was a September Baby, Alex (13) was my June Baby, TC and Sean were both May Babies and now tonight we will have Marc (17) who is my December Baby. He arrived in this world three months early... I tell him he was so early because he was anxious to see Santa Clause.
Which reminds me... Sean when he was visiting his parents before he went away discovered that the Dr who delivered him was a MacKay. His joke was that it was one MacKay that brought him into the world it will be another MacKay that will see him out. If he is reading this... I'll be with you right till the end Sweetie... for better or for worse. And only 9 more sleeps till he comes home.
I'll give you a hint as to the next ornament. The only one left after tonight will be Alora's who is a January Baby. Yes, I will complete the set don't worry, I've just run out of Kids to pick ornaments to give away from.
So here is tonights freebie

Alex made it!!! & A Freebie

Whoo Hoo... Alex got the phone call today and she made it to the Northern Ontario Talent Competition. I submited her video on Friday and they called on Saturday morning but she was at a sleep over so they called again today. Believe it or not she is not that excited... I don't think its sunk in just yet. All her friends were whooping and hollering when they found out. There are only two categories Over 18 and Under 18. I think once she gets there though and realizes that all of Canada will be able to see this, Channel 224 of Bell Express View December 6th she will get nervous.

Tonights freebie is for my son Robert. His birth month is September. He is pretty much all grown up now at 18. If your reading this online Robert, love you lots and I miss the quiet little boy you use to be. (He talks and talks and talks

My April Girl Freebie

Well, since I started with one daughter yesterday, I better continue the trend of giving out another daughters Birth Month Ornament. This time it is for Tanya my oldest daughter who is now 20 who was born in April.

They grow up way too fast and its amazing just how they can surprise you. Tanya's room use to look like a bomb hit it and I would get after her to clean it up-never did happen to my Now, when she is in town, she comes over while I'm at work and cleans my house. Her boyfriend/husband owns the tattoo shop around the corner and sometimes she comes over if she has errands in town and waits for him to finish up work so they can go home together. And while she is here, she can't sit still and finds things to do around the house. I tease her and ask her if she wants to move back in.

Before the freebie though, I want to show everyone the pumpkins that my son Marc and I carved tonight. He is a teen therefore I'm sure you can understand the puking pumpkin. I did mine as Winnie the Pooh as Alexandra just loves Winnie.

Okay so here is the freebie

Before I forget there will not be any ornaments on November 1st as I am participating in the ADSDesigners Blog Train Freebie. Each participating designer has co-ordinating kits to offer and all the links will be on my blog November 1st.
Okay, and before I go to bed, I am going to add this link for this YouTube Video, which I hope will have finished processing before morning. Its of my daughter Alexandra singing "I Love You More Today Than Yesterday" Its her entry at the TV station for an upcoming telethon. I'm so proud of her I had to share. Hope you all enjoy.

Yes I have another Freebie for you!

Someone asked if I was making the whole series of ornaments the answer is YES I will be making one for each month of the year using the Birthston Colours and making a few other ones with various words and sayings. I'm not going to be giving them out in order though so come back often and pick them up while they are still available. Don't worry, I''m going to leave them up for a little while and will give some warning before the links expire.
Tonights freebie was chosen because my youngest Alexandra was born in June. Wouldn't you know she would pick the one month with the most expensive Birthstone, which just happens to be Alexandrite.

November Freebie

Wow, I'm so happy that everyone is enjoying the ornaments I have made. Thank you for all the lovely comments.
Well, Sean is only gone for another 15 days. I can hardly wait for him to come home. Its hard to believe that 23 days have already gone by already. He flies into North Bay late on the 12th of November and I've taken the 13th off so we can spend some time together. I know, I'm an incurable romantic.

Other than that my only real excitement today was this morning. The bus went by early and my son Marc missed it so we took the next bus together. I'm glad he missed the early bus even though he was late for school. We picked up Tim Hortons coffee while we waited and he said..."Sean is lucky to have such a beautiful 29 year old woman, what more could he want." I'd said I was feeling old earlier, needless to say he made my day! (I'm 39 and felt every year of it this morning) I hope he doesn't read this blog but I'd be willing to let him be late daily if he gave me compliments like that all the time.

I hope you enjoy your freebie tonight. I was going to post it yesterday but I had a few personal requests.

Here are a few requests I've had so far;

Nana, Papaw, Merry Christmas, Our First Christmas, Joyeux Noel, Baby's First Christmas

if you have any more, feel free to leave a comment or e-mail me.
