Project 365

Have you heard about Project 365? It is the quest to take at least 1 photo everyday for a year. More information can be found here: For me the project means not only taking the picture(s) but scrapping them as well. I started on January 4th and hope to do the whole year. My plan is to take time every Saturday and scrap the previous weeks pictures. The thing I am finding hard is - what do I take the pictures of? So the first week of pictures are rather random and somewhat boring. I came close to not taking a picture a couple of days and had to scramble to find a subject. Hopefully as time goes on it will get better. So without further delay my first weeks photos.

Kit used was by Verena Karolyi and Doreen Stolz from

I suppose I should leave a freebie - after all, that is why most of you visit. Let me see what I've got... A template - click on the preview to downoad. Leave the love :-)

Happy New Year

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa and a Happy New Year. I am wishing all the best for everyone in 2009!

On that note I have not been here for a while. I apologize, but as I know you all can understand - this time of year is very busy. I am also the finacial director of a consulting firm and our fiscal year ends 12/31 so I have some additional pressure. Add to that the fact that I am taking 2 classes at the local community college and it adds up to one busy person. But... I have had some down time this weekend and decided to play around with photoshop. I am a little "kit" challenged so I decided to create a couple of templates. I will leave the first one today. I have also designed a quick page to go with it.

The layout preview that you see is of my sister and her daughter. But I can totally relate to what is going on. Have you ever teased a child - be it your brother/sister or daughter/son and discovered that all though they are ticked off at you, their expression is so funny, it makes you laugh - so you continue to do it - well the photos in this layout are the result of doing just that. Oh this brings me back to babsyitting my younger sibs, the laughs I had... am I evil?

Enjoy the freebies! Papers from Nana's Attic. Visit her site she has some great kits.

Winter wonderland and a new blog location

Hey all,

I am back to leave you the elements to my Winter Wonderland Kit. I am still not totally happy with them, but - I guess my creative mojo was blocked for this kit. I am going to try to re-focus for a new year kit. I am open to color ideas. So if you would like, leave me some color combos and I can see what I can create. Sometimes it is the color that calls and then the theme.

I have been very busy trying to finish Christmas shopping, as I am sure many of you have. I am also working on some digiscrap things for family. I am doing calendars for my 2 sisters and my brother. A bit of work, but I think they will like them. They are all getting the same layout, just different photos. I am also working on a couple of brag books. It seems like it should be so easy, but the thing that takes the most is getting the pictures right. I spend soooo much time looking for the PERFECT photo - a small case of OCD I think.

I am also working on switching to wordpress for my blog. I have some difficulties getting my blogger blog to look right, so for a time I will "try" to mirror this blog on my new one - which you can find here: Now for the fun part - click on the previews to download. Leave some love!

Winter Wonderland Papers

I hope you enjoyed the quick pages I made for the December ADSD blog train. I will be starting on the kit for the January train soon. Let's hope I remember to sign on to the blog roll.

Today is December 4th, only 21 days until Christmas. I can't believe it. I have sooo much to do and sooo little time. Anyone else feel that way. Despite hearing Christmas carols since Nov 1st, I still do not have the Christmas spirit. Hmph - I'll have to work on that.

I have this idea to create my family Christmas card in the form of a calendar card like this

It would tri-fold down to the size of a regular card. I thought it might be neat for people to have something they could hang all year. That is where my concern is. I want it to be a Christmas card, but I want it to be able to hang all year, so I may have to change the elements around a bit...

Let me know what you think. I might also make one as a quick page. The only thing is you would need to be able to print at 15 - 16" long or shrink it to fit 11" paper. More thinking to do...

Ok, I am really here to finally post the papers for the Winter Wonderland Kit. I have procrastinated something awful. I hope you find many uses for them.

As usual, click on the preview to download. Let me know what you think!

ADSD Holidays at Home Blog Train

I am not sure where the time goes. It seems like yesterday I posted my Winter Wonderland QPs and I was coming right back to post the papers. Well as you know, that did not occur and somehow it is already December. I will get them posted soon.

I hope eveyone had a nice Thanksgiving. Always a favorite holiday of mine. Nothing to do but cook, eat and visit with family and friends. What could be better. Now onto the business of the day...

I am again participating in the ADSD freebie blog train and here is my contribution:

Please visit the rest of the designers below. They have all worked hard to freebies for everyone to enjoy. I didn't make the list (again where did the time go???) but spread the word about the freebies and send people here. The Quick Pages are made in part with my kit Cottage Christmas which I posted previously. I also used graphics from the designer I mentioned in my previous post. See how nice they are. Click on the previews to download. Enjoy and leave some love!

Winter Wonderland

Ok - I have been away for a while working on my new kit. I like the colors. I am having trouble with designing the elements. So the work goes on. I made some quickpages so you can get an idea.

I discovered a new store that I like to visit called Digi Web Studios. They have some talented designers there and their prices are very reasonable. Very country like. I love the fall and winter elements they have. I plan to incorporate some in my designs. Go take a look for yourself.

Click here to download all 6 qps.

Enjoy - I will post the papers next. I am still working the elements, but at least this is a start.
