Happy Friday!

First of all I would like to apologize for missing your freebie last week. Some of you may know that my dad was in the hospital twice last week the first time from Monday thru Wednesday, then he was re-admitted on Thursday and stayed 'til Sunday. He has had no further issues, so I hope the problem has resolved itself.

Anyway, your freebie is back this week! This quickpage is the result of several items. The green and red background papers came from a freebie I created for RAKScraps as part of the designer spotlight for ScrapCloud. The tree is from my In a Pinch: Build-a-Tree, and the papers for the frames and the tree all come Sugarplum Dreams and Visions of Sugarplums. The bead circle chain I created for the page. Enjoy!

Pumpkin Patch Alpha

I've created a new alpha! It's actually been rattling around in my head forever, but I hadn't had time to get it done until now. You will find it at ScrapCloud and 3Scrapateers (click on the links on the right to go to my stores there) now, but it won't be available at ScrapCentral until next week. Enjoy!

Well, this has just been a rough week... I don't know about you, but I'm sooo glad its over. I'm down another 1.4 lbs this week taking my total up to 25.3lbs lost! WOOHOO!

Help Vanderbilt Children's Hospital

As you all have seen once before, I am a huge Rascal Flatts fan... the fan club, of which I am a part, has a handmade quilt and pillow on eBay. The quilt is signed by all members of the band, and this is the last auction from the fan club. You can bid on the quilt here.
All proceeds from the sale of the quilt minus shipping go to help support Vanderbilt Children's Hospital in Nashville, TN. This photo is taken from the eBay listing, but there are lots of other photos of the quilt for you to view. Money donated to the hospital makes a child's stay at the hospital more bearable by providing games, a kid-friendly menu, and special equipment. (Photo courtesy of Velvet.)

Deepest apologies...

There will be no Pipsqueak this week... after almost 4 weeks of having sick kids and being sick myself, my DH finally became sick on Monday with strep... unfortunately he was NOT getting better and today has been diagnosed as having walking pneumonia in his left lung. So... I'm a crazy woman at home this week which means I've had no time to sit down and work on anything in days... the pipsqueak will re-appear (barring any further events LOL) for next week!

Thursday, October 11, 2007

New Releases!

I have released a set of hinges... this set of hinges comes in 4 styles and 4 finishes... so you get 16 wonderful hinges with a screw to coordinate with each finish. If you purchase this product to use commercially please read the complete TOU included with the file.



Friday, October 5, 2007

Pipsqueak Friday!

Well, I had planned on having something a little bigger for you this week... but as my luck would have it I'm still sick and then my oldest, Will, got strep throat on Wednesday... he's back at school, but I'm still not feeling the best... so this week, I have another Halloween quickpage for you. The paper, the skeleton, and the spider are from my Skeletons, Witches, & Ghosts - Oh My! kit which you can find at both ScrapCentral and 3Scrapateers. The frame is from the coordinating mini kit which is a 3Scrapateers exclusive! This quickpage leaves plenty of room for you to add a title and/or journaling!

My Stores are open!

My stores at ScrapCentral and 3Scrapateers are open. While there will be products at these stores that are the same, there will be products offered at one that you will not find at the other. So keep a lookout to see what's up next!

Friday, September 28, 2007

Taking today off...

with your Pipsqueak... I finally decided to go to the doctor on Tuesday... I had developed acute tonsillitis from a sinus infection I didn't know I had. This also caused problems with my ears aka eustachian tube dysfunction... oh joy! So, I'm on antibiotics, and have to go back in 2 weeks for a check-up... Will's party is tomorrow so I'm swamped... therefore the reason for no pipsqueak... however, I'll try to have an extra something for ya next week or just 1 but make it bigger... something to look forward to, eh? Have a great weekend!

Saturday, September 22, 2007

I'm late!

I am terribly late with your pipsqueak this week. Piper's been sick with strep, and I haven't been feeling the best either... soooo, its just wreaked havoc with my week!
Anyway, I haven't forgotten a freebie for you... its just taken a while LOL. This week you're getting a paper and a silver charm which coordinates with a new kit I've got coming out called Skeletons, Witches, & Ghosts - Oh My!

Since I had so much response I'm thinking I just might do it again in the near future! Here's the final kit, which will be available in my ScrapCloud shoppe later today!


And now for your Friday Pipsqueak! I'm covering 2 different holidays in this one post LOL. Before you know it, it's gonna be Halloween! So I created this little quickpage for you. I didn't add a lot of elements, so you still have room to create your own! This was created using my Spooks & Haunts Paper and Element Packs which you can find here.

Close to my heart!

Anyone who knows me knows I'm a HUGE Rascal Flatts fan. I'm a part of their fan club, and the FAM (Gary LeVox's name for the fan club) for the last couple of years has put together a cookbook to help raise money for one of the Rascal Flatts' charities of choice - Vanderbilt Children's Hospital. Currently they have a cookbook signed my members of the band on ebay. All proceeds will go the Vanderbilt Children's Hospital.

Other FAM members have made bears which reflect the guys personalities/hobbies. All proceeds will go to benefit Vanderbilt Children's Hospital.

Pipsqueak Friday!

Wow! It's Friday already! My oldest child, Will, started kindergarten on Monday... boy was that hard - not just for me, but for my daughter Piper as well. She and her brother are really close! Last night was a great night... I went to see Jason Aldean and Rascal Flatts at the Kentucky State Fair... their new tour, Still Feels Good, is an even better show than the Me and My Gang show I saw in February... so if you like Jason Aldean and/or Rascal Flatts you definitely should try to check out a show - you won't be disappointed!

I know, I know... get on with the freebie right? LOL. Well, since I had a crazy week, I just have a simple template for you. My template series is called In a Pinch and you can find a couple more of my templates here.
