Another freebie

Well, a couple of you have had some suggestions about creature comfort phrases, for which I thank you. I'll try to post that extra set tomorrow...I agree with your thoughts! And the rest of you will benefit from their suggestions.

There's a crispness in the air today...hurray! Each day is different, which is not unusual in my part of Texas. Thirty-degree temperature swings are not uncommon, and we're accustomed to it. My husband--a transplated Texan from the UK--still is not used to it, however, so his reaction becomes comical sometimes. I'm still smiling about his reaction this morning--nothing in particular to share about in words, but my point for all of us today is to find humor in the little things. That's always part of being ME, but it does take work at times.

It didn't take work this past weekend, however, when my 3-year-old nephew walked into the room and said, "I'm the bomb-diggity!" We have no idea where he heard that but he was so cute and sunny-natured when he said it...well, it was irresistible. He was just being him at the moment.

Hope you can use another "being me" type of word art today. I made it glittery in case you wanted to sparkle up a Halloween layout with it, too!

Blessings on your day,

Feel-Good Freebie

If you've spent any time at all tracking my blog, you know how much I enjoy playing with my friend, KimB's Color Challenge at DSO. She's such a gifted designer and it's always a treat to get her posting bonus, but the real fun is in designing, too. [By the way, Kim's newest kit is all about a Candy Christmas, and is adorable. Check it out!]

I did something a little different this time. Kim let her husband choose the color palette, which made me think that these were "comfort colors" to him...which made me think about comfort food (doesn't everything?!!)...which made me think about things that appeal to me about October...which made me think about October's Creature Comforts. Make sense? It did to me. :)

Hope you can find this set of 12 word art phrases COMFORTABLE and inspiring to use for your layouts. Who knows...if enough of you send me YOUR "creature comfort" word-wishlist, I might be persuaded to make a second set. :)

Blessings on your day,

Hello, all...hope this October day brings you joy. I had a fun weekend with an unexpected visit from my oldest niece and her family. Her three sons are great and we enjoyed watching them relish playing in the PERFECT weather we had all weekend. [Rainy this morning, after a stormy night, but the weather was perfect when we needed it!]

As boys do, they played all sorts of games; but in one particular game that involved a battle of sorts with foam swords, the oldest one (age 8), yelled to his "troops"....Retrieve! Retrieve! Retrieve!

We couldn't help but laugh at his version of the battle cry, "Retreat!" :) We never did correct him because, to be honest, we were impressed that he even knew the word retrieve. Don't you just love the way shared laughter makes you feel? :)

The lovely Kate sent me three recent terrific layouts she had done, using my word art. Thank you so much, Kate, for sharing these with us! Her daughter is newly pregnant and she wanted to commemorate the glowing lovely that she is.

I'm celebrating this favorite time of year myself with the addition of two new alphabets to my Divine Digital store. Click on the preview images below to take you to my shop...



Hey, this just occurred to's a thought for an advertisement slogan for my still-new store: RETRIEVE! RETRIEVE! RETRIEVE! [laughing by myself at my computer] Hope you like the new alphabets, at least enough to stop by the store and take a look. One of the word art sets I started with has been reduced to 20% off, so check it out, please! "Retrieving" them may just be the perfect thing you need for your layouts. :) A shameless plug, I know.
Hope your week begins well...I'll be back soon with another freebie!

Ghoulies and Goblins and Ghosties, Oh My!

Thanks for those of you who took the time to make such special comments about my store opening at DIVINE DIGITAL. It's been such a treat to work on items for it, and that's no trick! Did I mention that the K.I.D.S. word art set is on sale for 20% off? I think I forgot that the last posting. Here's the quick link to everything I've got in my shop at the moment: HERE. I'll be adding to it next week.

Today's freebie is another Halloween-ish one...hope you can find a use for it!

Have a great weekend!

drum roll, please...and a freebie

It's finally official.......I have my own store at the fabulous DIVINE DIGITAL boutique, where you can Let Creativity Fly. I was thrilled to be accepted into such a talented team of designers and was frustrated when the flu knocked me out of getting it up and going sooner. But now, you know...

Here are the first sets of word art that I've got available for you. The first one you see in the previews below is probably my favorite so far. I'm extremely sarcastic at times and thought it would be fun to have a few phrases that can be used that way, tongue-in-cheek, in layouts. This series is called, Yeah Right. The arrows come with it so that you can point the way to the person in your layout who is "always right," or "cleans their room"......yeah, right.

I've had fun doing them and look forward to being part of Team Divine.



here's today's freebie:
