It's Freebie Wednesday time...

Since schools are out here in the next few weeks I thought it only fitting to have a graduation boy AND girl for your Wednesday freebie. The link for these can be found HERE.

I tried to get these loaded earlier so no one was waiting, but we had a late night last night at the Taylor Swift concert and no one wanted to get up and get going for school or work today...

BLOG Candy with a due date

It''s official... It's my very first "BLOG CANDY" and after much thought I came up with this...First I was just gonna pick someone randomly from a post but then I realized there alot of people who really would appreciate a card made by the visitors to my blog... I have chosen one site.

Next time I can find another similar site and do the same thing. If you know of a site like this please let me know and I can schedule it for another month...

So whatcha gotta do is create a card, project something paper crafty for a child on this site. It doesn't have to be my art (appreciated, but not required) , follow the mailing directions and send it in the mail. Next post a photo or scan of what you did on your blog or site and I am trusting everyone on this part (mail the item)... post a comment on this post that you have done all of this and I will choose 1 grand winner and 10 first prize winners. All chosen randomly...What's up for grab.

1 Super Grand Blog Candy prize: Dino Rubber Stamp from
Right now there are 3 stamps, but the others are coming first part of June, The winner will win the entire Dino line designed by me "In rubber", not digital stamp.

10 first prize winners will win 2 digi downloads of their choice from my digital stamp line.

Please feel free to share this wherever you feel the need, I would like for these kids to get a flood of cards from people making their day just a little brighter.

*****Due date of June 6 2009, that gives people a little time and the dino stamp set to be done, BIG thank you to Katie at Paper makeup for donating the prize*****

10 New Digi's

Alright some will be excited, others will be angry..I hear draw more, I hear slow down your taking my paycheck. If you make 20 dollars a week. umm.... might wanna look for another job...I am kidding of course, I had these drawn up and waiting, but People are asking for things a month or more in advance... some of these would work nice for a father's day card, others are everyday kinda things. They are both available individually and also as a $10 for 10 deal... People seem to like that.

Files are on my website, not on Etsy.... HERE

Design Team I have files for you soon, a blinkie for your blog and will be contacting you here in the next day or so...

Design Team Members

After days of driving myself absolutely crazy, picking 76 from 119, narrowing that down to 42 all the way to 10 was impossible, In the end I went with 15...

Honestly this is the worst part of all of this.... ugh, my stomach hurts, I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings. I don't want anyone feeling left out. I have seen more talent from all the entries received these past few weeks than I have in my entire lifetime as an artist.

I could go on and on about how much this is.....OK enough rambling...

Here are my 15 Design Team Members in no particular order...

1 Paula Carr
2 Charlotte De Zwart
3 Ginny (V) Christiansen
4 Jason Casper
5 Ri
6 Peggy Marsh
7 Becky in East Tennessee
8 Poppet
9 Cheri Howard
10 Tracey Cuccia
11 Michelle Redman
12 Lana Clarke
13 Dominique Hornberger
14 Veronica Reed
15 Leila Pierce

If I mis-spelled your name I apologize. These members will be on my Design Team for 4 months, in August I will be doing this all over again unless no one applies because they are mad at me... Believe me I am not looking forward to that.

Members if you could PLEASE send me an email so that I can add your email to my list, I would greatly appreciate it, if you were chosen and for some reason since applying have decided not to do this please let me know as well. I will be adding guest designers to the mix once I figure out how all of that works, if you were not chosen and would like to be a guest designer during the next 4 months please let me know...


Sunday This n That

No this isn't the announcement for my Design Team, that will come later this evening. I have been working on a lot this week, Drawing, Design Team stuff, and Honey Do stuff, I repainted my whole bedroom this past week, looked for another job and finished the second to last Dance competition of the 2009 season yesterday... Woo Hoo.

One thing I did do was move my Digi Stamps over to my site. it's a part of my personal site that has 2 pages with all the Digis I have avaialble. No more selling out on Etsy and payloadz will deliver the files right to you so there is no chance of me missing an email or deleting one I shouldn't. I will keep the ones up on Etsy until they are sold out just because I have already payed to list them. Once they are sold out they will not be renewed and will be on my site. This might cause a little confusion in the beginning, but in the long run it will be better for all of us.

This past week I did a little interview for a friend Joni found here, if you get the urge to read a little more about me you are invited to visit her blog...

That's all for right now, back to the selection process for my Design Team....
