Changes and quotes ...

So I'm very sad that my designs are no longer at Digitals.  I'm not sure what is next, but I'm trying to be positive about it and hoping that better things are ahead.  I certainly need to find a new digital home for my designs.  I'm currently working on a couple of new kits and feeling good about finding some of my creative mojo.  In the meantime, I'm going to work on being able to sell from my blog or facebook page.  If there are any of my kits you are interested in, please leave me a comment or e-mail me and we can work something out.

One of the kits I'm working on is using the palette I posted last week that was inspired by the cupcake ad I received.  I haven't completely settled on a name, but am considering "Hearts Aflutter". 

I don't know about you, but I'm a big fan of quotes.  Seems I'm always collecting quotes and posting on my Facebook page.  Quotes can be a great addition to a scrapbook layout!  The quote I found and posted yesteday was:

You can always tell a real friend: when you've made a fool of yourself he doesn't feel you've done a permanent job. ~Laurence J. Peter

Don't forget the blog freebie I posted yesterday in case you haven't picked it up yet.

Have a great day!

Hmmmmmm did anyone say Blog Freebie??????

I knew I could feel it coming! ☺

I had done a mini kit for the Scraplift Challenge but since I'm not longer running it, the person who took over wanted to do their own freebie.  Sooooooo I decided to make it my first in a very long time Blog Freebie here.

Here is a preview of Floral Sentiments

You can download the mini here.  Please leave me some feedback here if you download and like it.  It's always nice to get feedback and also helps me get a feel for how many people are downloading and if they enjoy the designs.  The link to download will be good for only 30 days.

I'm going to get more consistent about posting and hopefully have some more goodies to share with you while I'm looking for a new home for my designs.

Colour Inspiration ........

2011 was not a banner year for me.  Lots of big bumps in the road and a huge lack of creative mojo haunted me.  2012 has started out better, but I seem to be getting a slow start on the creativity side of things.  Just when I was feeling confident about jumping back into the pool again, I received news that things would be changing for me.  As of mid-February I no longer have a home for my designs.  I don't know where I'm going to land, but I'm determined to keep designing and find a new place to call home.  In the meantime, I'm going to try and figure out how I can sell here from my blog and possibly on Facebook.  Stay tuned!

Today I received an ad from our favorite cupcake place (Crumbs) and it completly inspired me!  Check out this palette for some color inspiration!

Isn't it gorgeous!  I definitely feel like playing with these colors for a while and see what develops.  I can see a couple of different directions I could go with these colors. 

Cross your fingers that I find a new design home, in the meantime I'm going to work on some new stuff and revamp some of my older stuff.  Keep checking back because I feel a freebie coming up this week! :)
