Do you Crochet?

Hello World!  I have a confession to make.  I am a craft supply hoarder.  My yarn and fabric in particular have taken over my home.  This holiday season I am challenging myself, and you too, to create holiday gifts using only what you have on hand.  No buying new supplies.  For me this will be a bit of a challenge because I tend to want the "perfect" fabric or yarn for each project.  That's how I got here ha ha.

I have only been crocheting for a year and a half so I am still new to it but I admit I am addicted.  This is a blanket I am making for my oldest girl.  She is 21 and she chose the colors.  I've started (not kidding here) 9 different blankets for her but because I want it to be perfect, I keep frogging them.  This current one is the only one to make it this far and will be the winner.  She is getting very frustrated with me and claims she doesn't care if I make mistakes or not :)  I feel that since she will keep this for the rest of her life and it will live somewhere in her home and hopefully be loved by her kids in the future, I want it to be perfect.  Here it is:

It's just over half finished now and will be big enough to cover a double bed when it's finished.  Perfect for cuddling under alone or with her future kids or hubby.

I am considering writing a pattern for it but really it's a very simple blanket.  Also, I am going to do a roundup of teen friendly free crochet projects for the holidays.  Maybe if that goes well or if I am feeling good about the post I will do some more round up posts.  Ideas are appreciated.

What are you working on for the holiday season?

Happy Crafting World!

Dust & Dream Freebie

Just in case you are tired of the ROK freebies, here are some newer freebies.  One of my newest kits is called Dust & Dreams and I realized today that it had no alphas included with it!!  So I sat down and made some, then decided to give them away to all of you for free.  I love hearing your comments and the sweet comments about my anxiety and high blood pressure have really meant a lot to me.  I'm still struggling and had a bad panic attack today but thankfully I have an amazing husband who always supports me and kids who understand and run to get me warm compresses and hot milk when I need them.  

I hope you like the snazzy new alphas and have something to scrap with them.  If you are interested in the kit itself, you can find it in either of my stores.

Download the alphas here.

Have a super weekend everyone :)

New ROK Freebie :)

Hello everyone!  I hope you have been having a great summer, if it's summer where you are :)  I have been doing well although there have been some stressful times.  I have been diagnosed with high blood pressure so have been at a high level of anxiety for the past month but I am starting to realize it's not the end of the world and am starting to settle down a bit.  When I'm really anxious I either dive into my computer work or ignore it and this summer it seems I am ignoring it.  Today however I decided to take a look at my Really Old Kits and set another one free!!

As usual, I still love this kit. The wooden frames with plastic overlays and screws in the corners and the bright happy flowers still make me smile.  The papers were one of my first attempts at a painted/abstract background and while they are a bit overdone, I think they still rock.

Download the kit here.

I hope you like it and please don't forget to stop by one of my stores to check out what I have on sale.  Simply click the Plain Digital Wrapper Store or the Gotta Pixel Store tabs on the top right of your page.

A Rainbow my Way - ROK Freebie!

You can probably tell by my absence from the blog that I have been busy.  There is a good reason for that :)  I opened a new store at Gotta Pixel!!  So far it's been amazing so go on over an check out my offerings while they are still on sale!!
Today's free kit is another one that is near and dear to my heart.  It was one of my first kits ever and I still find the colors and combinations appealing, I hope you will too!

Have a super day and happy scrapping!!

Dream a Dream - Free!

Another oldie but goodie.  I love the colors in this kit.  I remember creating the flowers and loving the crumpled papers but not much else.  I do have some old layouts that I did with this one though :)
The first one is my youngest when she was about a year old, she's 10 now.
 The second is my oldest at 8 and my second oldest at 2.  They were so little!!  They are 20 (almost 21) and 15 now!!
I hope everyone is having a wonderful week and will enjoy another free kit :)

The next ROK to be set free - A Happy Place

I remember being charmed by the kitten with the flowers and creating the whole kit around that image.  I'm not sure why I called it A Happy Place but I guess it made me happy.  The colors sure are bright.  I find it strange to see how much I have progressed in my designs since I created this kit in 2008.  My papers are so much different now and I add a lot more elements to my kits.  One of the things I am seeing as I pull out Really Old Kits is that I didn't add as many elements but did create many of the same elements in every color.  I still like to do that for certain things like tags or labels but generally my new designs have different flowers, buttons and frames.

Anyhow here is A Happy Place.  I hope you can use it to make yourself happy too :)

I hope you are all having A Happy Saturday!!!

I set them FREE!

This week I was looking around the area where my desk is (stuck in a corner of the basement) and spotted an old CD case.  For years I have been burning my kits to CD's to get them off my hard drive and free up space.  I hadn't looked at these CD's for years because my old computer decided it was going to break and I had no CDROM to read them.  Sadly my last 200 or so kits were deleted from the hard drive because of this, instead of being saved :(

After looking at them and admiring how my designs have both changed and stayed the same I decided they needed to be set free.  I didn't change them at all, just updated the preview because sadly some of my old stores are no longer open.  Times are tough all around and I hope I can brighten your life by adding some freebies!!

Here is your first Really Old Kit Freebie.  

I hope you will like our trips back in time.  This kit is from 2008 and I sold it at the now extinct SBE or Scrapbook-Elements.  I loved being in that store and really wish that I had never left.  At the time my kids were young and I decided to cut down on my designing to focus on family but looking back it was a mistake.  I think I ended up more anxious and I really have never made the same money again that I made in that amazing store.  I wish it was still around.

Slice of Summer and another freebie!

Happy Friday Everyone!  Slice of Summer is now available here.
and the journal cards are available here 

Both the squared corner and rounded corner are in the same pack.

Today I have a freebie that matches my In the Deep Again Page Kit.  The In the Deep and In the Deep Again sets are so calming and really have been fun to create.  I can't seem to stop going back to them! 

The freebie is a set of abstract papers (yes, I am obsessed with all things abstract lately!!!) and I hope you like them :)  I have also been playing around with a new preview and can't decide if I should go with the birch looking or the plain.  I think the birch looks nicer but the plain shows the title of the kit better.  Do you have any thoughts on this?  

I forgot to split this into two downloads for slower connections so if anyone has trouble just leave me a comment and I will fix it.  

Happy Weekend Everyone :)

Sneak Peek and Freebie

This week I have a kit called Slice of Summer debuting at PDW.  Friday it will be in my store here.
Lots of summery and golden elements and lots of fun watercolor elements and papers.  The doodles were created by me and scanned then turned into papers so they do have that hand drawn look.  And how about that watercolor look?  I know I am loving it right now and constantly on the lookout for watercolor items.  The journals come with both a square corner and a rounded corner so you can use whichever ones you love.

Slice of Summer

and now for the freebie!

The freebie is a set of 12 abstract papers based on the patterned papers.  I hope you think they are as fun as I do :)

Camping with Foxes Freebie

This week my new release at PDW is called Camping with Foxes.
And here is your free matching Mini Kit.  I chose to use some of the fringe colors instead of the main colors for the Mini Kit.  I hope you like it and I hope you will hop over to PDW to buy the main kit and the extras, they are on sale for this week.

I did a layout of 3 of my kids camping a few years ago.  My son had spotted me in the second pic and made a funny face at me :)
