Free File to Share!

Hi Everyone,

As promised, here is a little file that I'm sharing in all of the formats! I saw on a board that someone was requesting a Nubian Goat. Now as I have been to many a petting farms I knew exactly what it looked like! I love the long ears on these animals and their gentleness of them, so after looking through old pics, sure enough I was able to find one.

Whether you raise goats or visit a petting farm, this will make a cute accent on your page. I'm also including a silhouette of a baby nubian in the file as well.

If you dowload this file, please do me a favor of leaving a message so I know you came by. Also if you have any requests, please let me know and I will do my best to come up with a file.

Also don't forget my sale is still running and as usual...for all of you SVG users, if you find something in the store go ahead and purchase and send me the receipt and I will send you the SVG version within 24 hours.

Speaking of SVG...I am looking for a design team member who is a Cricut user. If you are interested, please send me an email ( telling me a bit about yourself and I will let you know what I need.

I guess that's all for now...hope you all have a most wonderful Day!!!

Eddita :)

Guess What?!!!

I'm having a sale! But guess what more! I didn't even recall I was having one LOL!

I was checking out My Files to see if I had remembered to upload a file when I saw a great big red line through all of my prices! I had to look at my calendar to see that YES sale starts TODAY and runs through the 29th, so if you have a few bucks burning a hole in your pocket, why not come and take a look at what's available for 30% Off!

Remember is you need an SVG version of any of my files, go ahead and purchase and send me a copy of your receipt and I will send the file to you directly via email. I'm pretty well on my way to having everything done so it's just a matter of getting them uploaded.

I have been pretty busy getting new files up in the store and wanted to share a couple more with you:

The first is my Halloween Cauldron with Skulls which started out as a journaling block but then I got to thinking it could also be used as a photo frame by simply using the center oval as a template to cut out your favorite little trick or treating photo. I love when I start with one thing in mind and end up with a bunch of other options!

You can even enlarge one of the skulls and use it as an embellishment on a page or on the front of a scary Halloween Party Invitation, or how making a skull extra large and putting it in your windows or on your door?

The second file was inspired by all of the great homecoming and fancy holiday dresses that are showing up in the store! It's that time when couples go to dances and I wanted to create something that would be a great place to journal about the event (or even a picture frame)! You tell me if you like it!

Work has been going well, but after 10 hours there, the last think I really want to do is sit down on the computer...but a gal has to do....

We're looking at doing another camping trip sometime next month before the weather gets too cold and we freeze in the woods...this last trip I thought for sure I had lost one of the a second? Here is a quick story:

On the last night we were camping, the temperature dipped down into the 40's. Now picture if you will a nice size tent (about 12 x 12) a king size air mattress, a quilt on top of that, and both DH and I have our own sleeping bags on top of us to keep warm (We both hate being confined inside). The dogs are curled up with each other at the foot of the bed and Guiness in a little carrier. Anyway, it's pretty cold and I take him out of the carrier and put him under the bag to keep warm and then I call my Daisy Pup and she comes up on my right side....yummmm...getting warmer but heck, we still have one dog and so I call him....Toby....TOOOBBBYYY...(now I'm getting a little worried) TOOOOOOBBBBYYYYYY! No movement. I reach down with my toe and prod him a little and call his name....Nothing! DH (who I have woken up by now) calls him and invites him up on the mattress...I'm looking at the dog and the first thing that flashes by is "OMG...the dog is dead! He froze...this is a horrible camping trip....etc etc.

DH sees no movement and actually gets up (what a concept) and gets a hold of Toby's collar and moves him and there you see Toby's bassett looking face go "Huh?? You were calling?" He then does get up on the mattress and things are right in the world again...even though DH thought it was funny, I really thought something bad had happened!

Now this picture I'm sharing is not the frozen morning, but another one where it was early (around 6:30) and everyone was still asleep. I was reading one of my novels when I looked down and saw everyone so I took a pic...if this blog had sound o vision you would be able to hear all of the snoring (Toby's of course) as well as Guiness' purring!

Enough rambling for the night....I'm hoping to have a freebie for you all in the next few days so make sure you come back and check for it.

Have a great night everyone!

Catching Up!

Boy after being away for a week I have been pretty busy catching up with things, doing some more SVG c0nversions, creating files and taking classes...what classes you ask....well only after (and if) I pass will I share with you ;)

Now, before I forget, since school is back and we are looking at football games starting again, I have a special coupon code for you guys whose kids Cheer the team on. On sale for 3 days only (that's from now until 21 September) you can get my "Cheertastic Collection" for 50% Off! That's a great deal!

Just take a look at the 4 great files you get and at a price you can't beat! So if you're ready, just click on this link to get to the store and once you add it to your cart, all you have to do is enter the following code: EC_0909_23851

The best part is that this file (as well as all of the individual ones that make it up) are all available in the SVG format. You can go ahead and purchase and all I ask is that you send me a copy of your receipt (to and I will send you the files right back...can't get much easier than that!

Also if you want to plan ahead a little I will be having another full store sale where all of my files will be 30% off from September 24th - 29th AND a final coupon code for a very cute special file...which one is it...hmmmm I'll give you a's what people tell you to say when they are going to take your picture....hehehe.

Finally, I put a quick note on the Forum announcing my latest file. In case you missed it, here it is. It is called Postage Stamp Frames 2 Ways.

I thought to myself how great it would be to incorporate this idea into your card making and layout pages! This file comes to you 2 ways: First as an overlay so all you need to do is cut the frame you want out…how easy is that?!

Second, it comes as a pieced file so you have one background to which you can cut your photos or stamp little words or phrases on the little block and simply attach to the top. I thought it would be nice to offer both options so you can decide which way you prefer.

You have lots of choices on the sheets and the files are very easy to resize if you need to. You can even cut a couple out to make it appear as if you have torn them off a sheet...

I even used one with my new puppy to show his pic in the top area and then used the area below as a journaling block. Check out how I added the USA 44 on th image so it looks like a regular stamp...just think how cute it would be with a picture of your favorite people or pets! The neat thing is that you can play with it all you want and make it your own and unique. Resize to make as large as you want and can even reduce slightly. I think that's about it for now and I hope you are all going to have a wonderful weekend (I know I will!) and check back for the news and updates including some fun new files I have been working on!

As always, if you see a file in the store you like, go ahead and purchase it (doesn't matter which one) and send me a copy of the receipt and I will get it right out to you so you don't have to wait for them to appear as available in the store. Michelle is working really hard at uploading all of the files we have been converting, but it's quite a task as I'm sure you can imagine!

Until next time!

I'm Back needing a Vacation from my Vacation!

Not really, but there always is a ton to do when one gets back that sometimes it feels like you need another vacation just to relax again!

Hi Everyone! Well after a week away I made it through another relaxing camping trip! I read 3 novels + 2 quickie Harlequin romances (which I found in the bath-house library LOL!), got eaten up by every insect known to man, burned my thumb and still found the time to laugh :)

We went to a lovely campground in Romney, WVA and set up our tent in a very picture perfect area of the campground (the rustic area of course!) where we had great views of the river and got to watch the train go by as well as listen to the herds of cows talk to each other. I even caught a glimpse of beavers swimming around! While it rained a couple of nights, because we were sheltered a bit under the trees, and the tent has a great awning, we were all comfy cozy and dry! As always we took the dogs including the new guy!

This is the first time that Guiness ventured out on his little kitty harness and I can say without a doubt, he was the best behaved "dog" of the 3! For the most part when we walked the dogs he rode on my shoulder but he would give off a little meow to let me know when he wanted to walk with the rest of the "pack". It was really funny to see him running just to keep up with Daisy and Toby, but he did.

Normally after we would get back from the walks there was an order to things....First, they would all get a drink from the water bowl and then Second, they would ALL collapse!

This of course would continue to be the case until day 3 when Guiness discovered how comfortable the water bowl actually was and took it over as his own personal lounge bowl. Good thing we had taken plenty of dog bowls with us so we had no trouble keeping them watered.

While I was away I did a lot of sketching of what was going on and came back with my new "Primitive Camping Collection" which I will be sharing with you in the next couple of days. I have just finished test cutting the files and I think there will be a little bit of everything for everyone!

Speaking of files, for you KNK users, did you see that Ileana is hosting a KNK Elements Swap?! I know I have mentioned this in the past, but this is a perfect way for you beginners as well as 'ol Pros to design a file and share it with others. The nice thing is that you will receive a bunch of free files for you to add to your ever growing collection!

I can't resist and have sent in my file. Here is what it looks like and if you are interested in having it all you have to do is sign up and send your masterpiece in before the 19 September midnight deadline!

Just click here for the link to the Paperthreads Forum where you too can sign up!

I'm still working through my SVG conversions and thanks to the last sale, got a number done! As always, if you see a file of mine that you need in this format, go ahead and purchase, send me a copy of the receipt and I will convert and send right back to you!

I'm working on a freebie for this week, so make sure you check back!

My First Sale in what seems like Forever!!!

Now that life is back on track, just wanted to let you know that ALL of my files are on sale for 40% off! For those of you who use .SVG, while I do have some converted, if you email me a copy of your receipt I will take care of it right away and send out to you.

I will only have internet until Sunday night and then I will be back on Saturday, so if you need the file sooner than later...don't delay!

What else...oh yes...well, it's official, the G-Pup is a....drumroll please....boy!!!

He checked out well and is 9 weeks old (which is what we knew). We decided to make his birthday the 4th of July since it is easiest for us to remember. He got his first distemper shot and poor little guy was passed out for most of the afternoon. I don't think he was feeling too good but this morning I heard a rusting sound by my bed and there he was zooming all over the place so he is back to being his old (if you can consider 9 weeks as old) kitten self!

He goes back again in 3 weeks for his 2nd distemper and then at 4 months for the little snip which causes grown men around the world to cross their legs and groan!

I guess that's all and I'm not sure that I shared before, but as it is Back to School time, here is
the cute file I created for this time of year. Pick any colors you like for the backpack and lettering.

You can also write the date on the apple or even marquee select it and enlarge it to use as your journaling block. Hope you can all get some use for it and at 40% off how can you pass it up?!

You can find Back to School Backpack here :)

Well everyone I guess that's about it and enjoy your Labor Day weekend!
