I was nominated over at the Blogger's Choice. That makes me excited. If you have a chance and can vote for me it would be awesome. Thank you to Sue for nominating me. !! Woohooo!!!!!
Well a lobster was requested in my database. So here it is. These pieces all come apart. I just thought they were pleasing to the eye stacked liked this. I tried to come up with a cute saying for Maine and the three things that came up for Maine the most were the coast line. Hence the lighthouse.. The moose (is that Meese in plural?) and the lobster. so Here is Maine. This was kinda fun to put together.

So I have a quick story to share.. and we know how quick my ramblings are (so Lori.. pull up a diet coke here) ...
I went to get hay with my son in the big truck and we get in and he has his terminator sunglasses on.. and he says. mom, call me super hero. So I say all right only if I get to be Super Mom.He thought this was pretty darn cool and said this is our Super Truck. So as he road shotgun in a truck with no air that I have a lighter plug in fan running and blowing on him. Because he hates the windows down because the "WIND IS TO LOUD MAMA".
I got to think about that Super Truck. When I met my hubby almost ten years ago this truck was my chariot. He came to pick me up in it for trips around town and around the state. He had it washed regularly and just listening to the diesel engine start up made him smile. I can remember how I loved to sit next to him (thank goodness it was a bench seat) and just drive around town lookin through the big window in life with the A/C blowing on me (yes it had AC then.).
So as I nostalgically (is that a word?? it works for now??) ran through these thoughts I heard... SUPER MOM> SUPER MOM.. I get pulled out of my daydreaming moment. My son says "It's HOT." I concurred. So on our trip through town to get hay because of course I like the hay from one place in town the best and will drive an hour to get there. (do other horse owners do that? I must be a hay snob) Anyways. we stopped at every circle K there was to get water and popsicles and the like.
I cannot imagine that those many years ago as I rode next to my then boyfriend that I thought I would be considered Super Mom as I drove this big ol truck of my husbands through town, sucking on a popsicle and chatting with my son about the finer points of dripping on your clothes and not on Daddy's truck. Gotta tell ya.. life is good.
Well have a great day and most of all...
aka Super Mom
PS.. My last sale was on my birthday in June .. I think correct me if I am wrong... so On Monday of Labor Day Weekend all my files will be 30% off. I have offered coupons here and there, but this way you can just shop and shop and not worry about codes. It's all day Monday. So do your search.. write down your numbers and be ready to go. Hopefully supplies won't run out .. (tease)... oh and I am pretty sure my friend Lori is joining me in the sale, but don't tell her I outed it before her. That is why I am posting it here in the fine print of my post at the very end. hahaha. Love ya Lori!! And I hope she is joining me. Or Woops I will be wrong. Maybe I better hush up.. lets see what she says on her blog today... Shhh!!!
First let me say I also have a three year old son and at times I feel like I am going through the same situations in life that you are.I visit your blog regularly and this is my first request. I am looking to fill a page with numbers. I think it would be easier to have them joined together when cut. I would like them to be jumbled together in different sizes. I am a new owner of a wishblade and the C&C software and unfortunately a little computer challenged. I am hoping you can create this file for me so that I can cut it.I appreciate everything you do and everything you offer to those of us with new machines.
(email and website signature removed)
I call these first two Jumbles. Because it just looks like a jumble to me, but will cut in one piece. I also made my happiness words into a jumble to.
This set of letters is Times. So if you have Times on your computer which I think about 99.9% of people do you can add the letter you want to emphasize in a contrasting color or size. The long narrow setup can put along the bottom of a page. $2.49 Regular Price. This is one of next months Sale Files. Purchase HERE.

This will be the file for today. I am working on all the conversions for it and seeing if I can get a second file up for later today to. Have to test cut it. I should know when I start out Monday with how the heck am I gonna make it through everything today. I probably won't get a file up. So this one will be here. just wanted to give you a preview pic. Came up with three titles for one image so I am including them all in one file.
Also you should have a new password today! If you didn't get the email. you'll have to check the group.
This is a terms restricted file.. Please do not download unless you have read my TOU and plan to abide by them. Entering the password is your digital signature that you agree and abide by these terms... This file is no longer available for Download, but may be purchased. HERE
A few things.. my friend Lori is asking for prayers for a friend of hers son. If you have a moment of silence, please take it to send prayers. The miles may be far but prayer travels by the speed of god. Thank you to those who can. This is near and dear to me because of my cousin and his head injuries after a car accident at the age of 9 months. Every prayer counts no matter how short and long. Thank you.
Next.. Pickin Horse Apples. A chore I don't relish at all. and Yes Shae you are right (see comments for more info). Included in the file are three titles because I couldn't pick the best one to put with the pitchfork.
My hubby came home with a gift for me last night a 320 gigabyte external hard drive. woohooo I can clear some things off my laptop because it is chugging and I worry constantly about something happening so later today I will be plugging it in and copying everything to it for a backup. He knows how to make me smile!!
Thank you to those who used my coupon last week. Thank you Thank you.
Also, this was a request I saw earlier this morning so thought I would throw it out here for those with great ideas... What kinda of decorations can you make for a wedding reception, a simple open house after the ceremony..... what kinda of decorations can you make with your cutter?? My first thought was cut out their names and put them around the tables kinda like a larger version of confetti with additional words like happiness, love etc, or cut a tall piece with hearts and their names to put in the center of the flowers. Does anyone have any other ideas??
Well our horse shoer is here. So I am off to listen to some good horse stories and information and try to get some work done in between.
Oh and if you have children and need a break from life and just to laugh at the pure chaos.. anyone who ends their posts with...
OK, I have to go clean pudding off the ceiling now. Don't ask.
Is A-OK in my book. And yes this is the ebay.. pokemon card lady. Her blog cracks me up and slows me down for a few minutes every day to read every word of it.

First can I say I am working on an upload and it should be later today. I have a ton a ton of errands to run in town. If I can get it all done and home I should have one.
For right now, I am getting ready to head in and hit swim lessons and then multiple stops on top of that. So I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Mine started out with my hubby and I kicking up our heels and doing a little country swing. He and I met on the dance floor and it is one of our most favorite moments together. We got a ton done at the house with little things or rather my hubby did with my son. They worked on all kindsa things from messing with the boat, to changing out the horse waterers, to fixing the fence. My son just trudged behind his Dad with small plastic hammer in hand. So awesome to watch them. Then Sunday was a fun filled family day. We drove to Phoenix to help my brother move a jacuzzi then back to Tucson for a family party with my in laws. Fantastic! Love how that family gets together and just hangs out. By 9:30 pm we got home and had left at 530 a.m. we were exhausted, but it was time spent together so how awesome.
So this weekend I read a few magazine pages here and there. One that stuck in my mind was about an actress...can't remember her name for the life of me.... rrrr... anyways she was talking about taking baby steps to going "green". I gotta admit in life this crosses my mind lots from living on a farm in my youth, to spending time with my Dad in the summers in the "woods" of Wisconsin to living in the desert with my Mom and siblings and having horses of our own and living on a larger parcel of land then most. It may not be a huge section of land, but it is ours and we like it. We have just enough room to spread out. But I think alot about nature and life and how we all interact with eachother. How living in the desert versus the woods is each so different, but still have a lot of consistent features. One of those is I can still awe over a flower. And especially in the desert. I can awe at its beauty in a world of dirt and cacti. This lady in the article stated that you can take baby steps... Take a canvas bag to the grocery store with you for those quick trips or buy a favorite coffee mug to take to the local coffee chain. I thought wow this is pretty easy steps and I have a huge-a-mongous canvas bag I use for toting things already. And man does it drive me nutz when those little plastic bags break and some of my family in Wisconsin is supported by the paper industry so alot of times I try to use paper bags. But that also has its repercussions. So this week I will be seeing if I can clean out that tote bag and take it to the store for a test run for this quick stops at the grocery store. I am thinking this way I won't be dropping a can of soup on my foot when the plastic bag splits. And as for the coffee.... well I don't drink it... ick.. Hot burning scalding brown water with the funkiest bizarrest after taste that makes you want to cut your tongue out because you burned it and now it tastes like trash. ewwww. give me cold pepsi on ice any time! another habit I have to break. hahaha.
Well I have rambled to long.. I am wondering if anyone else has any simple easy steps to "green"... like turn off the water when brushing your teeth, unplug your chargers when not in use so they stop draining electric ... any thoughts? I am just curious..
Thanks much for listening.. have a fantastic Monday. See ya later today.

Here is another Farm file for the books. These are Terms Restricted File which means they are for your own personal use and not to be shared, altered or claim as your own. Downloading this file is an acceptance of these terms when you type in the password (see how I run my blog bottom of left column.. if you don't have it.. or join my group) This file is no longer available for download, but you can purchase it at Paperthreads Soon.
Okay on to Friday. wooohoo. It is Friday and tonight we are headed out. Which means I need to look through my clothes to find something to wear. I have a few western "bling bling" belts that I just love, but have to decide what I want to wear. My hubby took his clothes with him so I can just pick him up after work and he can be ready to go. It has been a while we have been out together on our own. Soo soo excited. Should be lotsa fun. My son will have fun at his aunt's and I get to kick up my boots. What a win win situation! Can you tell I am excited.
So the last few nights with my son have been crazy. My son has been so wired it is insane. He spent twenty minutes last night running circles in the living room. Part of the problem is he can't go outside by himself or with the dogs right now. There is a mountain lion in the neighborhood. So he usually goes outside and plays in the sand box and our dogs hang out with him while he is outside. They are cute they just follow him around everywhere. But our friends large dog was killed, another neighbors horse was attacked and my friend was driving down the road and saw it. She said it is huge. She sounded a little suprised it was so large. The reports are the mountain lion has cubs in the area and that is why she hasn't left the area. So that means my little boy doesnt get to go out without me. Hence the pent up energy. This little character Diego on tv is one hyperspastic kid and runs everywhere. Therefore my son wants to run everywhere! Wew!
Well I better run. Gotta feed the horses. Have a wonderful weekend!

Also, I am waiting for a coupon code from Michelle at Paperthreads for the store to add with my first password email from the group. So if you haven't signed up yet. Now is the time so you don't miss a weeks worth of Terms Restricted Files.
On that note ... a few things about the group you should know before you sign up.
Also, a thank you for joining my group because I know alot of you probably belong to many different groups I will try to keep this one short and sweet. Only the moderators can post to this group, so you won't be getting emails from many people. You probably want to stay on Individual email. There will not be a log of past emails. Once you get it, you may want to keep it in your email. This email is not a guarantee you will get a file for download. It is just the passwords to use at my blog for whichever files you'd like. So you still need to visit there, but with this email you will be able to download the files.
I invite everyone to put their birthdays on the calendar so I can figure out a way to send you a birthday gift. I don't know how you post on the calendar. I just know it is there so why not use it! And if I have a setting wrong and someone can show me how to fix it. By all means let me know.
Also, I have opened up the Links section. If you want to post your link there for your blog or website, please feel free to do so. And we will see how it goes.
Every once in a while as the group grows I will keep repeating these things. So my apologiesto those who will have been signed up from the start and will hear it over and over again and again.
That is it for now.

Okay for those ten people that applied to my group and got a denied notice.... MY BIGGEST APOLOGIES. Please join again. This is what I get for having my three year old sit on my lap and watch Diego while I work. He hit the button and it sent everyone to denial land instead of approve land... sososososososos Sorry. Please try again.
Okay so for those checking out the blog to see what the file will be today... This is the file. I am still working on the links, but wanted to give anyone a heads up that wants it or would rather not because it is such a specific file.I will add to this post when I get the links together.
more in a bit....
in a bit...
Okay I got the links up.. I am still feeling bad about those ten people... Please please sign up again. Also, now is the week to sign up. I think next week sometime will be our first trial run for the email passwords. And I have heard rumor you will have to pay etc.. You will not have to pay. I chose to go through yahoo to run the mailing list rather then constant contact so my downloaders and myself wouldn't be out any extra funds.
Okay so for the download. ... This is a Terms Restricted File. Which means it is for your very own personal use. No posting to groups. posting to email. posting to friends. Please do not share, or alter and claim as your own. By downloading you agree to this... This file is no longer available, but may be purchased at Paperthreads HERE.
Also, my friend Lori has some GeoCaching files for sale at paperthreads and their are samples on her blog. I didn't even know what this was 'til it was on her blog. Personally I love MAPS. love them. I will be an atlas just because it has maps. so for me the gps are frustrating maddening and annoying. I want to decide where I want to go and figure out how to get there by the back streets. In fact about a month ago I bought a pocket atlas and put it in the truck. It has all 50 states. when am I going to drive through all 50 states?? Someday. Someday when my hubby and I retire and can check out all of the rodeos of the countryside or horse ranchs... what a wonderful dream. Although I don't think my little itty bitty RV will make it that far!
On to life... wow it is busy right now. But that is a good thing. Slow gives me time to twiddle my thumbs and worry about what I will have to do next. I am working on a bunch of Halloween files still. They are going fast when it comes to downloads. So keep an eye out for them. I will have a chance to test cut them and get them all up in the next couple weeks. Thought I should get them out early instead of last minute like I did for the Father's Day Mini Album, but lots of people used it!! So that is fantastic. I loved seeing all the projects.
So for Halloween I kinda threw a challenge out there for the last file as to ideas other then cards to use them for... and I got this in my email box this morning from Nikki. I am not sure I even responded to her yet. They are awesome.... Here is what she wrote and a picture of the finished product... fantastic....
For months now, I've been downloading your wonderful files and feeling guilty because I'm yet to create anything good enough to put in the Paperthreads gallery or for posting on your blog. But, I loved your Halloween card file you shared yesterday and had a brainstorm when you challenged us to come up with something else other than cards to use the files for. It’s not a wonderful layout, but here is my idea. I cut elements of your file out of vinyl (love that stuff) and then stuck it on large flat pebbles (found in the floral dept. of craft stores) and glued a magnet on the pebble's back. I love Halloween, so for me Halloween magnets are a great addition to the decorating!!!
Really this is outside of the box. Thank you for sharing Nikki and thank you to everyone who has shared in the past!! Looking at all your layouts and ideas ...inspires me..
Also, I have been asked for another font in the word books. I am going to post this right to the store at Paperthreads, but wanted some input to some as a good font. I was told to look for something in between the groovy font I used and also the squared font I used. Does anyone have suggestions on a font that is thick letter, but a little more formal then groovy, but not to stiff. .. hows that for a description?? hahahaha.
And as for my quest on making luminaries. Well the KNK does cut through both layers of the bag and does it easily, but I am going to try putting a cut up mat in between the bag layers and just cut one side of the bag. When I get some finished products together I will post them here.
Sorry so late in the day... Have a wonderful evening!.

For those who have emailed me.. Yes there is a kinda maintenance going on at Paperthreads. Michelle moved us to a new server.. woohooo.. so for your viewing pleasure the pages should load lots and lots quicker over there! And with that, some of the files I have been emailed about should be up in the store in a little bit. Uploads to the store slowed down while we were in transition. So the forum is still going through some tweaking and some things in the store, but all in all we will all be happy when it gets all done.
Okay I am back to bed. I have to be rested to get my son to his last swim lesson today. Wew!
Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by!
Monday, August 6, 2007
So today I will be in the office all day and my son gets to play with his Nana. I am not sure how much coorespondence I have to do, but I have a ton of checkmarked email that I need to go through and follow up on. So if I didnt reply to you. I am definitelytrying to catch up.
I got my KNK to work. Woohoo! After a few hours of playing I am finally past the drawing stage. This thing is a beast but I love it. I have a bday party on Friday I need to go to for 3 people. So I am going to be cutting my birthday cards. and thank goodness I didn'twait til Thursday pm to try to do it. Which is my usual.
I spent some serious time working on my craft room this weekend. It is a mess. Alot of hobbies I really don't focus on anymore. So Iam cleaning things out and will see if I can drop them off at the local white elephant or a charity for the retirement communitydown the road that takes crafting stuff for those on a fixed income. Will have to look and see what I can find. Felt good to clean somethings out. However, paper... I have paper in every nook and cranny so I need to go through it and see what I can organize and clean up. Luckily my in-laws redid there kitchen when we built our "barn" which has a craft room in one end and the tack room and tool room in the other end. So I got all kinds of kitchen cabinets for my room of crafting. It is wonderful to have so much room. So when I get some things organizedI will take pictures and post them.
I got a few posts of things people did this past weekend...
Margaret told me she used one of my files for a layout.The Sting of the Bat.I like the layout alot. I like the simple colors and really make the pictures and the Sting of the Bat file pop out on the page. I am so glad it was sent to me.. Thank you!!!
Dana emailed me and told me she did some cleaning up and picking up of her craft area like I did.
Vicki also sent me a note that she didn't cut any of my files, but sent me some beautiful tag images she worked on. Thank you for sharing.
And did you see the April Showers layout on the left of my blog pretty close to the top. Christina sent it to me saying it was her beginnings at scrapbooking. Well I think that is a fantastic beginning. Fantastic!
Wonderful. Glad some of us got some crafting done!
And a ps. I took off the login for the comments. So those who don't have a google account can post. I just ask that you post your name with your comments please or your yahoo user name etc. Thanks. We'll try it this way and see if this has all cleared.
Sunday, August 5, 2007
2nd off. Thank you to my fellow designers at Paperthreads. They really have spent alot of time this weekend chatting me through this and decisions and what to do.
3rd - A PUBLIC Thank you... and some of you may think I am crazy.. But I a public thank you to the two ladies who for one sent out my file and the other forwarded the thanks to a wrong group and started this whole mess. A Public thank you for sending me an Apology. I was pleasantly surprised when I received it and didn't think I would.
4th - A thank you to the groups moderator for helping to work with me on this matter. Yes I had started contacting some groups asking for help. I also want to say that it isn't the groups error that it was sent to... it is the sender that violates the terms. I have removed their name from my post and let you know that the groups owner it was sent through is a very helpful and positive person and very knowledgeable about copyright and commented that they discuss it regularly. It is unfortunate this post went through that group, but it has been removed from the archives of that group and also from my blog.
Now lets get back to crafting and having fun! Oh yeah. Okay I need to get this KNK cutting and not just drawing... I am soooo good at the drawing. I am afraid to put the blade to the paper and retire my trusty CR.
There will be some changes happening at my blog and I will not be abandoning it. I will keep you posted. But otherwise .. enjoy.. the rest of your weekend!
Please be aware that the yahoo group this item was posted to has contacted me and is frustrated that their group has been seen in a negative light. I will be the first to say. I don't think it is the group that violated the TOUs. It is the downloader who passed it on. I have removed the name of the group from my blog as after getting all the details and speaking with the person who answers the Owner emails I absolutely in no way feel it is the groups fault. I am sure it is a wonderful group of people who are based on a crafting business and would like to emphasize that it is the downloader who is the violator and not the group. Please keep that in mind.
I guess I will not be offering Freebies anymore I will be offering Terms Restricted files. hence not meaning the terms are a freebie but that they are restricted and limited.
And as for all my super fantastic downloaders who took their precious time away from their families and lives ....oh and the "cure for cancer" to give me some positive feedback. Thank you as always your honor, appreciation and respect motivate me.
The biggest change you may see in my blog is you cannot post anonymously. My apologies ... this bums me out because I know it is a pain to join every thing on the internet. But if you are gonna make a comment of any kind. You should be able to post your name, if not welcome to the chicken farm.
now let's get past the drama and I am seriously looking into a subscriber list for the passwords. This would enable me to offer my downloaders so many extra things as well. I am way excited about this. Lemons to Lemonades.
So a real boost to the blog to get past the drama and BS are...... some layouts of my files. I am gonna look through my emails I have received and see if there are any pictures to post. Anyone have any. I find these are great pick me ups and incentives to be creative and keeping creating.
So anyone with a few layouts laying around from my files that you havent seen me post. remind me about it or send me the pictures. Or if you aren't working with one of my files... Then what did you do in your craft space this weeked that was positive and fun...
HERE is the link to email me.
Enjoy Folks. Have a wonderful weekend and what a fantastic group of people we have here!!!
Again a disclaimer.. this blog is definitely not the cure for cancer... but hopefully the cure for the common frown or an unused cutter. (bahahahahahah.. as my friend Lori says.. she always adds a B. I usually do it hahahah.. makes me wonder what her real life laugh sounds like. :) )
HUGSGSGSGSGSGSG alll around!!

But I left the smiley face in after the persons name. Glad the person was so happy to share my hard work.
Well folks this was sent to me from a yahoo group. Not the first time. Someone has sent something to my attention. I have a lot of thinking about what to do.If you are reading this and you know you typed it. I removed your email address and name out of respect for your privacy. I have a feeling many people would not be to happy and would like to send you emails asking why you can't follow TOUs that are stated with every single download file. Every day. Especially since I have seen your name listed on a few of the cutter groups as well. Where people don't even pass out my password, but send people back to my blog to get it.
So on that note. I may need to figure out a new way to run my blog. This was not sent to a cutter group By the way, but yes a yahoo group. And thank you to the person who sent it to me out of respect for me, my files and my terms. Your honor will be forever respected.
My question is if I sign up with Constant Contact and send out the password weekly to a subscriber email list... this is a service I will have to pay for. Is this something people would be willing to do? I would just email out the password for the weeks files. Just trying to get a feel and an idea for what to do or not to do anymore. (Okay... so an update.. some confusion.. In giving my files away I would maintain a list with Constant Contact and pay the fees myself. I would not pass it onto those here. I would pay for it with my sales at Paperthreads. I just am wondering how many would consider even subscribing to get the password to download. Not to incur a cost. Just wanted to clear that up real quick with all the wonderful comments I am receiving. Thank you)
Or the other thought given to me is just to post the entire verbage her name and all and leave it at that. . There must not be a problem sharing her name much like the willingness to share my file. This is the less work for me, but not really my style. Any thoughts on this?
I am off to think. Your thoughts are appreciated. and if anyone has a different avenue that I might take please let me know. I would really rather not shut down.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Thanks for stopping by even tho' I am not normally here on the weekends.
PS If you have read this and know the post came from you and have anything to say. Or if you are the owner of this group and want to email. please do so. I look forward to hearing from you.

Okay.. so a little ahead of the holidays, but I was working on some Halloween items and thought I would share. There is a bat border. and a bat card front. This piece is just a square with the bat cut outs. So you can use it on a scrapbook layout or cut it and paste it on a card so the color shows through the bats. and a couple extra bats for embellishment.
I am still working on all the wordbooks and keeping an eye on my blog visits. So when we hit 100,000. I can mark the following day with a celebration!!! Which means lots of files to you!!
Okay and as for downloads. Tell everyone who wants to know and has asked me repeatedly... Today is my first day offering the.. This file is no longer available, but may be purchased from Paperthreads soon.
. So here are the download links. I will have to review how many files get downloaded from each. It seems the .ai file can be used for Mac users, Illustrator users and others. So it will be interesting to see how many downloads it gets.
If you ever feel like you have a question, just email me and I will try to get to all of the emails. One of the email request I don't get to very often are.. I missed the file.. I totaled up all the requests for people who missed the file from the last 25 days ... 422 requests for various files that people missed. I apologize if you missed it. If I spent the time filling all the requests. I wouldn't get another file up. I am not trying to be rude or uncaring. If you missed one, please consider purchasing it at Paperthreads. I had a huge sale in June and will probably have another one before the end of the year, but I havent nailed it down as to when. If you don't get a response to your missed file request this is why. Please keep visiting. I try to be regular about my downloads and only let life and family interfere.
on to happier thoughts... Today is Friday!! Thank gooodnesssss. I am ready for the weekend. Lots of fun things to do. We are supporting a local neighbor girl with her 4-h pig project. So we are going with her to pick out a pig to take to all the fairs which we are purchasing. Pretty Cool. I think 4-H is phenomenal and teachs responsibility. Some may not agree, but I grew up on a farm in Wisconsin with the love of it, and I think it is a wonderful organization.
Oh any My Nan many have asked about... is going through Chemo and seems to be holding her own. And my MIL is home right now and learning how to deal with the life after having heart 4x bypass surgery and a pacemaker put in. Thank you to everyone for their positive thoughts. and prayers.
Sunday a.m. my hubby is golfing... so that means... Sunday p.m. is my crafting afternoon. Woooohooo! I have some new organization things to hang in my craft room. I bought a magnetic tool bar to put some of my tools on and a few other things. I am getting a new cabinet so I need to get in there and clean the place out and get it organized again. It seems to go through phases. organized and then a mess and the cycle continues! so I am looking forward to getting out there. I cut files constantly, but to just have an afternoon truly in the craft room. to cut some fun projects and clean it up etc that is awesome. And I am looking forward to it. I hope everyone gets some time to be crafty this weekend. I would love any pictures of my files you create! I am going to try to post them on my blog more often in the left bar. so if you have any send them my way!!

So on to bigger and great things.... So here is a heads up for you!! My blog numbers as of last night since the start of my blog in February are 94,012 Page Visits and 156,662 Page Views. I think this is worth a celebration!! So the day after we hit the 100,000 mark I am going to see what I can about hitting multiple files. So keep an eye out for it. I am excited about this... I will have to get to working on the files and quick. Because before I know it I will be here. On average I run about 7% new visitors consistently on my site that is awesome! So thank you to everyone who passed on my blog and links to it to others, groups, websites and on their own blogs.

Also, if there are some Creative Team members checking my blog, which I believe Susie McCormick is because I have gotten comments from her. WELCOME TO THE PAPERTHREADS CREATIVE TEAM. How phenomenal is that! I am so excited to see what these ladies come up with.
And for another Paperthreads comment... If you were thinking of buying a file... I beg of you do it soon!! The bestseller list has been cleared at the store so I look like I have no bestsellers. I should have lots of new files up in the store over the next couple weeks. If I could think of a way to track who bought something to populate it first.. I WOULD.. but I give everything away here!! Think about it.. you would be reducing my anxiety that I will never sell another file again and not have a bestseller. hahaha. okay so that was way melodramatic and over the top for me. hahaha.... my normal side would say... if you think about it and are going to, please do so. My nerves would appreciate it! My portion of the store at Paperthreads.
Well my horses are banging their feeders I better run and drop some food in them before they wake up everyone within a mile radius! Have a wonderful day! Oh and the picture of the texas sage from my patio. The rain the rain. it has been raining here like crazy and therefore the texas sage on my front patio has popped with bright purple flowers.
