Voting Has Begun...

Voting is now open in the Stone Accents Studio designer contest. Head over here to check out all the entries and download some free kits! If ya like my kit best please vote for me (no pressure!). Here's a preview of my entry ----->

We had to come up with a kit using only these colors. Hope you all likey! =)

OH, if anyone is planning on sending out photo xmas cards this year, wait'll ya see what I've got for ya. They are going to be 4 x 8 cards, and all you have to do is plop a picture on them, print 'em, and send 'em.
I can't wait to get mine done. I'm having a photo session this weekend with my girls in their xmas outfits for our cards. Hopefully they will cooperate. I'll post some pics next week.

Speaking of the girls...Ashley has discovered the fine art of cussing. Yesterday, my mother-in-law heard her say "Oh sh*t". Isn't that just delightful. She was told that was a bad word and we don't say that. Well, Emily heard it and decided to join in the fun and said "Oh sh*t" too. Nice, huh? I've got a couple of truck drivers on my hands. And yes, I'm sure they got it from me. I've been known to throw down some "Oh sh*t's" (and worse).

Don't forget to vote *nudge nudge* ;)

Dear Santa....

I was flipping through a Christmas catalog last week and I came across a cute little santa sign. But of course I thought, "Hey, I can make one of these myself", so here's the result. I used DCWV paper from last year's Christmas Stack and printed out the text on my printer; ribbon is from Joann's.

Not a whole lot happening around here to report. We put up the xmas tree on Saturday which was loads of fun (being sarcastic, of course). We have one of those fake pre-lit trees, and, well you pretty much need an engineering degree to figure the thing out. I couldn't get the bottom part of the tree lights to go on so after about an hour trying to figure it out, and using some pretty colorful language, I decided, screw it, and I ripped down the lights I put around one of our living room windows and wrapped it around the bottom of the tree. Then I started smelling something funky...I checked the girls first (always the go-to first), then noticed smoke coming off the top of the tree. I'm not kidding, I couldn't make this stuff up. So I immediately unplugged the top portion of the tree, went to another living room window and ripped those lights down and wrapped them around the top of the tree. There you have it, the Griswold, err, the Knapp Family Christmas Tree. Had to throw in a little Christmas Vacation reference for ya there. The girls were a big help...yeah, they were trying to find out if ALL of their toys could fit inside the tree box. As it turns out, yes they can, and boy were they pissed when I made them put them all back before they could watch Caillou. I wish I would have taken pics of that, but man, I just wasn't in the mood (go figure).

So here are a couple of pics I took of them this morning playing with thier farm thingy toy. I love the pigtails.

I'll have a new freebie soon. I seem to have lost my mojo, but I'm sure it will be back soon (I hope).
Have a great week ;)

Quickpage Freebie

Sorry I've been MIA lately. The girls and I came down with yet ANOTHER cold last week, so I haven't really felt like doing much of anything. But we are all doing better now so I did another quickpage for ya. Not sure if I really like this or not, but if ya want it, grab it here. I don't know who made the kit, so if it's you, please let me know and I will give you credit.

I also "re-decorated" my page. Do you like? I really like the way my new banner turned out. It took me all weekend to get the animation going.

I'm going to try to get a new kit done soon, so be on the lookout.

I hope everyone has a safe and happy Thanksgiving. Gobble 'til ya wooble my friends, and for God's sake, pace yourselves.

Jack Frost Kit

I finally finished another kit. Geez, thought I'd never crank another one out. I've had "designer's block" (if that's what you want to call it) and I just couldn't come up with anything until I heard on the radio that we're going to have our first snow fall on monday or tuesday. *yikes* So, here's what I came up with. Hope you all enjoy. Snag it here. I'm taking my last vacation week from work this week so wish me luck (dealing with the twins all week!) I don't have a whole lot planned...mostly catching up on household stuff. I'm dying to put up all my christmas stuff, but when I mentioned it to the hubby, he looked at me like I had three eyes, so I'm going to try like hell to contain myself. I know alot of people hear the word "Christmas" and they immediately get stressed out and would rather stick a fork in their eye than think about it, but I can't wait. I love everything about it. Especially now with the girls...everything is new to them and its so much fun. Daddy taught Emily "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" so that's what she's been running around the house singing for the past week. So cute!
