Cool stocking stuffer ideas!

Good morning! I awoke to a 26 degree morning today - thank goodness for a warm house.

I wanted to showcase a local artist's website, Silvia is a good friend of mine, but that isn't why I'm talking about her. Her items are all handmade and amazing! She will even make custom-make items as well. Best of all, her prices are outstanding! Let her know I referred you, because she's known to throw in a freebie here and there.

Credit to the Designers for Their Elements

I forgot to mention that we really should add credit to the elements' designers. That way we maintain copyright laws and get some great ideas where to find *purdy* elements.

By the way, one of my new favorites is Check her out!

Keep the LOs coming!

The format of future challenges


Stephanie (scarson) mentioned that she'd like it if all the challenges were posted here on this blog. She read my mind! It makes sense that we should refer to this place so we can see our peers' work, n'est pas?

We will continue to send emails notifying you when the latest challenge is posted here.

Please contact me if you would like to take on the moderator role for one challenge. I'd love this to be a group effort. Besides, don't let me get too Type-A on you guys and tell you what to do and think. I'm the oldest of four children, so I do it without thinking. :O

By the way, Ann, all emails I send to you are being returned to me. Is your email down?

Good night, sleep tight -

More LOs for the 11/11 challenge

It's a blustery, overcast day here in Nampa (a suburb of Boise ID). It's the kind of day you want to curl up with your laptop and digi all day long!!!!!

I'll be posting LOs as I receive them. I love how different everyone's take on this challenge is. And, I learn a lot from seeing others' work. Lots of info gathering.

Here's Deb's (DShroeder):

Hello to my fellow Up & Running Friends

Welcome, welcome! You will have read through the emails I sent you guys if you're here reading my blog. It would probably be best if you could just link your gallery url to my blog in the comments section to display your LOs for the challenges. If you don't have your own gallery, you can still send your LOs to me as a jpeg, and I'll post them. The former would be easier for me... :)

Looking forward to seeing your handiwork for the 11/11 challenge - here's one of my older ones using PSF '07 #11:

A little place for my brain's chicken scratch...!

I am very new to this blogging business so it won't look as pretty as I want it for a while.... I am thrilled to have this medium for expression; what did we ever do in the pre-internet times? My 4-1/2 year-old has her own laptop that opens up to, and she has her favorites set up so she can go to Playhouse Disney, Nick Jr, etc. She likes to print herself little activity sheets.

Anyhoo, I hope to hang out with you here more often.
