Hello, again!

Looking back on my blog yesterday, I realized that I forgot to put a note to tell everyone that I was on vacation last week. I always take a week off in May, just before the school kids are out. My husband and I ended up staying at home instead of the Colorado trip we'd planned -- but his time was cut short because he ended up being asked to go to work for a competitor right away. Because it was both a promotion and a significant pay increase, he leapt at the opportunity. So, I enjoyed a much quieter week than I'd thought, which isn't a bad thing.

I've had several questions, comments and other requests to which I need to respond, so I'll just launch into that right now.

BLINKIE: I've actually had a request for a blinkie for my blog! I've thought about that several times, but to be honest, don't know how to do it!! I'm not particularly happy with my blog header, so know I need to redesign that, and I was waiting on that to get a blinkie done. If anyone has any ideas about that, please let me know! I know there are tutorials out there for all kinds of things, but I just haven't taken the time to figure out the whole blinkie issue.

Two readers pointed out to me (thanks, Sharon and Starla) that the word art I hurriedly posted just before I left for vacation had a typo on it. So, a corrected version's download link is below. I'm so embarrassed about it, because the incorrect ways people use "it's" and "its" is a real pet peeve of mine; I got caught out because of the old copy and paste thing and didn't proof it as I usually do. Thanks so much for catching it!!!! DOWNLOAD: Boy Truth (corrected)

Jan, I do plan to do a "girl" version similar to the Boy Truth quotation. Actually, I had planned to do it at the same time, but ran out of time. Thanks for your request -- I'll try to get that posted later today as soon as I find one that I really like.

Denise tagged me!!! I will add my responses to today's posting as soon as I get a chance to go grab another cup of coffee. :) Denise, you're a one-woman cheering squad, and I greatly appreciate all your kind comments and "atta-girls." Thanks, too, for noticing I was absent, D.

Also, I've had requests for some other word art pieces that have links that are no longer active. I will get to those this week as well.

Lisa Campbell sent me this layout using the bird song quotation. It's beautifully done. Thanks, Lisa!!!

Lisa also sent this gorgeous layout in direct response to my shameless begging. You'll notice that she split the word art to accommodate her layout, and I think it works beautifully:

I must also show you this layout sent to me by Stephanie B, using the recent Ocean word art. Isn't it awesome?!! And I don't use the word awesome unless I really mean it. :) Thanks for sharing, Stephanie.

In the meantime, it's great to be back online and in the digi-scrap community. Now, I need to go check out what I missed on my favorite blogs and shopping sites! Have a great Tuesday. See you again, soon.
PS: Oh, yeah ... here's today's new word art. It made me chuckle.

Blessings on your day,

I'm glad you were only away, I thought something may have happened to you or yours.
