Hi Everyone,

Just a short post to let you know that the Floral Cap Nouveau series has expanded to include the letters B through F!  The rest will be forthcoming.  I am not going to upload a file for the entire set.  Once the complete alphabet is in, if you wish to purchase all 26, I will give you a discount of 35% and build you a file in the format you prefer and load it in the shop.  
Here is a look at the letters I have added:

All of these can be found in the Floral Cap Nouveau section of Monograms in my little shop.

Stay tuned as more will be added shortly!

A Special Freebie Treat for you all!

Happy Tuesday Everyone!

Yep, I have a special Freebie for you all...Remember way back sometime I told you that I was working on a new set of monogram capitals....well, here is the first one!  A lovely A!  Simply click the link and you will be taken directly to it in the shop!

Now I am all set to start on the rest, but I need a little help from my lovely followers.  If you like this style and it is something that you would use (considering the rest of the Alphabet) please grab it.  Im keeping a record of how many go out so that I will know whether to do the rest of them or not.  If it is not something that you all would use, there is not one whit of sense for me to sit here for 50 hours creating the rest of them!  So if you like, grab and and leave me a comment and let me know what your thoughts are!

This one will be free until Saturday at midnight!  I want to get a good feel for if it is going to be something that you all would like to see more of!

So Grab away, and comment away!

Dang, I wish I had a funny to add to this post!  My brain is still a bit foggy!  But I am sure Sir Markus will have something to give me in the way of funny here in the next day or two....He never fails me LOL!

Have a great Tuesday!

Manic Monday has turned into FRANTIC MONDAY today!

Hello Again Everyone!

Well, finally, after 18 hours of driving (one way, including Naps) 4 days in Sunny Florida, 18 hours driving back, I am HOME!  Nothing like my nice comfy bed, which I haven't seen yet!  But soon, after the laundry, the drawing, the regular work, washing the dog, doing the dishes, all the housework, and other what nots!  Vacation gives one noooooo rest, I assure you!  But we did get to visit with 3 of the 4 children!  We visited the other one last weekend in Knoxville, so we have been well traveled this month!  Whew, Im glad we don't leave again til the end of May....I need a vacation from vacation!

So, in celebration of being BACK from Vacation,,,,I decided one category was not enough to put on sale, so I said, What the Heck, Put the entire store on sale....So, the entire store is on sale!  30% off of every item on the shelves, and Yes, you can use the BOGO coupon as well!  What a deal!

Anywho,  Ive added 2 new items this am, one of which is the "FRANTIC MONDAY" FREEBIE!

And here she is:
Butterflies and Flowers:

There are a couple more Butterfly images coming so be on the lookout!  This beauty can be yours for free until Saturday at Midnight!  After that it reverts back to $3.00

Next up is
A Pretty Sprig of Flowers:

Lovely flowers!

Now, this post is gonna be short and sweet, cause I gotta get some sleep, but I have to share with you some great wisdom from my 15 yr old son.  Boy is this kid a genius (LOL).  He actually is very very intelligent, but somehow, when he and Mark are around each other, something happens to the both of them.  Just sayin!

Little story:

We were driving down Pinellas Park Blvd, after picking Ed up for the day, and traffic coming into Seminole was backed up something awful (good thing we left early so we missed it on the incoming trip).  Mark made a comment, something to the effect of....Good thing we left early so we missed it on the income trip.  Hmmmmmm.  Ed, being the brilliant child that he is.... says from the back seat, after looking up from his new phone,  "Yep, that traffic will all be gone once it clears up."  The boy is brilliant I tell you.  Now he said this so matter-of-factly, plain, and without any fanfair.  I could not stop laughing, and Mark has the most hilarious look on his face.  I thought he was gonna bust.  He just had to say, Yep, Ed, it will.....and how he managed to do it without laughing, I will never know. Im just glad his sister Rena was not in the car, or goodness help me, all three of them would be spouting this type of wisdom....and I can only take so much wisdom in one day....

Well, it is off to finish the housework, and then take a well deserved a 5 hour nap.....hope Mark gets some rest at work! (like, NOT)  He never even got to hit the bed!

I do hope you like your Frantic Monday Freebie!  And make sure you check out the sale, good until Saturday at Midnight!

All of the titles are linked to their respective images in the store, should you wish to purchase them!

Hibiscus - Card made by Laura Boetto of Papers and Pixels Magazine!

Laura is such a beautiful Artist!  I simply love the shading here and that punch, and well, the entire card!  If this showed up in my mailbox, I would be one happy camper!

Butterfly and Grass -

Stef always does a super fantastic job, and this card is no exception!  I love her browns and greens, and even though it does not quite show in the photograph, you can bet there is glitter on that butterfly!


Awesomeness at its finest!  Another beautiful card from Stef!  I love this card's simplicity and those roses are showcased so well!

Vintage at its finest!  The background punch is lovely and Stef has used it so well to compliment her image choice!

Wow!  That Hibiscus looks as if Stef went and picked it from the bush!  Those butterfly punches add so much to this card and I love her coloring here on the butterfly in the image!  Spring has sprung over Stef's Way, I do believe.....well, at least in her craft studio anyway!

Two Different Cards using the same image!  The flower is the same color, just set up a bit differently!  Both of these cards are simply gorgeous.  Stef always amazes me!

Love love love this!  As a mother, this card would be so welcomed at my home!  I love Stef's color choices here!

Now this card is on my Top 10 of most favorite cards!  The elegance and simplicity of it is absolutely perfect.  The coloring Stef used is perfect for this image!  Subtle but the impact is solid!

Not a new item in the shop, but with Mother's Day around the corner it is perfection!

Another Stunning Card for Mother's Day!  Stef did this card in layers, which did not show through too well, but I know the actual card is simply stunning!  A 3D effect really shows off her work!

Another not new image in the shop, but I just love love love this card, glittery grapes and all!

Tea Time is one of my more popular images and this card screams tea party to me!  I wonder if Stef will whip up some sweet blueberry scones when I come up for tea!

Whoa!   Those are some lovely lovely lovely cards Stef!  Thank you so much for using your time and talent to make my images shine!  You are the cream to my coffee!

All of these images will be loaded up into Inspiration Alley at my shop shortly!

Now, the spot you have all been waiting for - The Manic Monday (all week) Freebie!  Well, here it is!!!!!   READERS CHOICE!  Once a month I give a Reader's Choice for a freebie!  And since I was feeling it today, here it is.  Please use coupon code MMCHOICE!  It has a value of $3.00!

This Week's Funny Stories!  No danger involved in these, but they were funny, well to me anyway!

No Hot Water!

Me:  Washing up the dinner dishes:
Mark:  Preparing to shower (yes, folks, Im gonna keep this clean)!
Me:  Finished with the dishes and sitting down to craft some jewelry at the kitchen table.
Mark:  Stepping out to say,  "What happened to all the hot water, why don't we have any hot water, what is going on!  (Ok, he works in and around the coal mines, so hot water is a necessity at clean up time!)
Me:  Nothing is wrong with the hot water, I just used it to finish up the dishes.
Mark:  You did like 12 dishes, why did you use up all the hot water?  (the look of frustration is growning on his face faster than a weed in the summertime)
Me:  Growing more puzzled, faster than the week!
Me:   Gets up and strolls over to the bathroom to check the situation out.
Mark:  Feel the water coming out of the faucet, ice cold! (That weed is even taller now!)
Me:  Surveying the faucets........ identifying the issues and formulating a grand plan.
Me:  Hoping against hope that I can keep a straight face whilst I begin the grand plan for returning the hot water to the shower.
Mark:  So?
Me:  I simply reach over and turn on the hot water faucet, then run like the dickens out of the bathroom and look for a safe place to hide! LOL!
Mark:   (I can't write here what he REALLY said, so I will be nice and say he said "Thank you so much Sweetie, you are such a loving person."

This is a classic sign of mouth overriding brain, which seems to be genetically programmed into the male species!  Gotta Love Him Though!

The Dryer!

Ok, let me give you a little back history here.  When we moved to Kentucky, we did not have a washer and dryer so I had to go to the Washeteria (laundry mat, wash house, etc).  I hated it, the drive, the wasted time away from home, the expense.  So I fixed it.  I waited til Mark had to go to work in Savannah Georgia for a couple of weeks, and I went out and bought a super duper deluxe front loading washer/dryer combo. (Now being the savvy shopper that I am, I figured up the cost over time to pay it off and it was wayyyyyy less than doing laundry at the washeteria for another two years, sooooo I bought it!  Now I am one happy camper at this point!  Now on to the little story!

Me:  (whilst cooking a great dinner for my hungry hard working man)  Babe, will you run the dryer?  (now, this whole story is all my fault  mind you, because well, I figured, after this amount of time (couple of years together) Mark would know what I meant.
Mark:  Ok, which one is the dryer.
Me:  The one to your right.  
Mark:  Which Button?
Me:  The one that says start, the timer is already set!
Mark:  Got it!  Dryer is running!
US:  Sitting down to a nice dinner and conversation!
US:  Getting the kitchen squared away after the nice dinner and conversation.
US:  Having a Grand discussion about who picked the last movie we watched, and who has to pick and load the next movie.
Me:  A couple hours later - Im gonna fold those clothes now, the dryer is finished running.
Mark:  Ok, Ill take out the trash.
Me:  Proceeds to the dryer, and opens the door.
Me:  A very very puzzled look on my face.
Mark:  Comes Back in.  Do you need some help folding those clothes.....but I AM NOT folding the shirts!
Me:  Ummmmm, wellllll, ahhhhhhh, not yet, honey, but when they get dry I will need your assistance.
Mark:  I ran that dryer two hours ago, they have to be dry by now.  What is wrong with the dryer.
Me:  Nothing is wrong with the dryer, but the clothes are still in the washer!
Mark: (to his defense) You didn't tell me to put the clothes in the dryer, you just said "Run the Dryer" so I "Ran the Dryer".  Now he has a straight face, not one bit of concern on it that he failed at the task.
Me: Kicking myself.  Loading the dryer, running the dryer!
Mark:  Sits down with a beer, cause he did the job I asked him to do, and he didn't feel one whit bad about the clothes not being dry......
Me:  I could'nt blame him on this one......but I am more specific from now on.
Me:  Thinking to myself.....nothing, nope, nada, gonna keep my trap shut on this one, cause, really, it was funny!  
Me:  An hour later, still folding the he could not hear me laughing to myself!

Moral of this story:  If you buy the dryer that you want, and your sweetie will help you do the laundry, Please ladies, be specific as to what needs to be done BEFORE the Dryer is turned on and run......The electric/gas companies do not want you to do this, but believe me, it is worth it when you pay the bill, especially if you wash and dry more than two loads a week!  Or better yet, just do it yourself and skip the really will be a money saver!

Well, that is about all for this am!  I got a ton of drawings staring me in the face and a couple of new projects to work on.......exciting things that will be forthcoming in future blog posts and newsletters, so stay tuned!

Don't forget, All Silhouettes are on sale for 30% off this week!
Gotta run and get the laundry done! 
Catch you all on the Flip,

New Product Alert! Butterflies are EveryWhere!

Howdy and Happy Wednesday!   Well, the shoulder let me alone for a bit yesterday (actually the shoulder still flared, but the Tylenol did its job well, which is unusual for me!) and I got a bit of work done and added a few new goodies to the store shelves.

I also made a few changes to the preview and the descriptions in the store.  I have taken off the titles on the previews as to give me more room to show the stamp.  And since you all know what digital stamps are for, I kept the info to the most important stuff.  This saves bandwidth, space, and precious time when loading the shelves!  I want to get the goodies in quickly for you all!

Now, can you all say "Butterflies"!  Here are 5 new images that have butterflies in them!

Butterfly and Grass  $3.00

Butterfly and Hibiscus $3.00

Butterflies at the Water $3.00

Butterflies In The Grass $3.00

Dew Drop Butterfly $3.00

Roses $3.00  (this one snuck in on me! LOL)

Ohhh, I do hope you like the new additions!  Remember, the 30% off Sale on all Frames is still going on!

Off to the digital drawing tablet!  I think the Tylenol will hold out for a bit longer LOL!
