Speaking of slow...I just found out yesterday that I am anemic AND I have hypothyroidism. What a combo! It sure explains a lot of things. Maybe once I get my iron back up and start taking my thyroid meds for a couple of weeks I'll see a difference. I guess I'll have to take thyroid meds all the time now, and keep getting regular check-ups. *sigh* No more "oops, I skipped my physical this year" for me.
Well, I'm going off to catch some New Year's Eve shows...I hope all of you have a good New Year, and I'll try to see if my internet is any better tomorrow.

Originally, I wasn't going to make a holiday kit. I felt there were so many great ones out there, and I really didn't want to do more green and red. However, when I was going through my pictures to use for my November kit, I came across one that had some red berries in it, and when I used kuler on it to pull out the colors, I knew it would make a nice, yet different, holiday kit. The red and green are a little softer than they are in most of the holiday kits out there, and the addition of the other, soft natural colors really help to tone it down a bit. Thus, "Noel" was born! I tried to use generic type embellishments for this kit, so it could be used for non-holiday pages, too. The wordarts are all Christmassy though. :)

Well, now I have my November kit available. I love the colors in this one. I wasn't sure what I was going to get when I started taking pictures for this kit. I figured that there wouldn't be too much variety in colors at this time of year. (As I mentioned before, I'm taking my colors from photographs I have taken.) Hope you enjoy this one.

Well, the good news is, I have a little mini kit all ready for you! It is called "Fields of Gold" and was inspired by a photo I took of goldenrod in a field. I like to get my inspiration for colors from photos, it makes the papers have more natural colors. There are 5 papers, 2 flowers, two mats, one button/ribbon embellishment and, of course, 3 wordarts. Hope you like this one.

I want to thank her for this award.., I love her blog, too, she has some nice freebies there, as well as previews for some of the kits she has for sale.
I'm supposed to nominate seven other blogs for this award, but I just got this, so I don't have time right now to think of seven other blogs to choose (Can I just choose ALL the scrapbooking blogs?--lol!) so I'll have to give this some thought. I was supposed to nominate blogs for another award I got, and never got around to that, so I'll have to try to do better this time. Hopefully, I'll get them picked out by the weekend.

FYI--depending on how things go around here, I may or may not be posting anything tomorrow. Can you believe that a hurricane may hit Maine tomorrow???? It may just sideswipe us, but either way, they are predicting a lot of rain tomorrow, maybe some power outages. We almost never get hurricanes in Maine! Could be interesting.

(to see more of this kit, keep reading!)
Hey there! I'm back in the land of the living! I've spent most of this summer not feeling well--bad weather triggers migraines in me, and -guess what!- that's all we've been having this summer. Every day, the weather report is the same: more rain. I'm beginning to think I've stumbled onto the movie set of Groundhog Day.
In order to make up for so few posts lately, I'm bringing you all a special kit I made as a freebie. :) This kit reminds me of when I was a little girl, and we would spend summer vacation at my grandparents' cottage on a saltwater river. We literally walked across the street to the beach. Years later, my uncle had a home on a ocean cove, and we would go for rides in his boat and breathe in all that wonderful salt air. The colors I used for this kit were taken directly from a photo I took this year down near my grandparents' old cottage.
I included some word art for this kit--the title is a word art, too. The word arts are in the kit.
Here are previews of the papers and elements separately:
A couple of the papers don't really show up too well in the preview--here they are:
PLEASE NOTE: In no way shape or form do I claim credit for the use of other designers' commercial use items (some purchased, some free) when I make my kits. They are all wonderful and talented, and without their talents and generosity, I would not be able to create many of the items in my kits. For the sake of these designers, please be respectful and do not share or pirate these items. Thank you.
