After not posting often, it sure is hard to get back in the swing of it! A couple things to show you all today and I'll save some fun to post about tomorrow. :)

Yesterday I released a new alpha set! I'd been planning this Notepaper Alpha since I was in the middle of making Calico Cutie, but had never found time to finish it until recently. Now just to use it myself to finish up a layout that was calling for these letters!

If you buy Calico Cutie and this Notepaper Alpha together, you can save 20% on both!

MelindaH has made another desktop calendar for me to share! She used my Sweet Little One Mini Page Kit and the prop kit for the current Gotta Be Quick Challenge. Isn't is sweet! I'm hoping to fill it in this afternoon and update my desktop. If you download, please post here to say thanks to Melinda for sharing her work!

Sorry, this calendar is no longer available for free download.

Today's the last day to pick up the March '08 Mega kit for FREE with your purchase of $20 or more from the Gotta Pixel store! AND today only, you'll get a pretty mini kit by Sara Ellis with any purchase of $0.01 or more!

Check back tomorrow for details about a new special and to hear about some of the fun planned over at Gotta Pixel for April!

Well it's been a long while since my last post, but with good reason! My sweet little guy arrived a bit earlier than I'd expected, on March 6th. The last 3 weeks have been filled with getting him to gain weight and getting the whole family used to life with our newest member.
I hadn't planned to, but I ended up making new pieces for his announcement, so I went ahead and turned it into a mini kit! I named it what I tend to call him, my Sweet Little One.

For my Gotta Be Quick challenge I made the prop to coordinate with Sweet Little One. Join in the fun and pick up the prop here. Remember, all who participate will get a $1 off coupon to my store!

Somewhere in the middle of all the excitement, Kathryn Estry and I managed to finish up a little collaborative Easter/spring kit! It's called Just Hatched--isn't it fun!
And on the spur of the moment I made the Leaves of Green paper pack! It had been spinning around in my head for months, and St. Patrick's day was the perfect day to have it show up in my store.

I've got lots more to share, but it will have to wait for another day. Check back soon!

So proud of myself! I finally got my computer desktop all cleaned up! I had all these random files and shortcuts sitting there and they were really getting in the way! I use Firefox and tend to just use the default download setting of plopping things on the desktop to deal with later. And all those shortcuts? I never use them! I also tend to make text documents with to do lists or notes from phone calls so I went through all those and deleted the old, put the ones to save in the right folders or just emailed them to myself in gmail. Now there are only 6 little icons there and I can actually see the photos in the March desktop Melinda made! I really should add the appt times in but I couldn't force myself up off the couch to check, so that'll be added later. Here it is for now:
I really can't believe it's already March! Soon I'll have baby boy pictures to scrap! And what perfect timing for Gotta Pixel's All About Boy's Mega Kit! It's free with a $20 purchase this month--you can get close ups of all the contributions here.
Here's my portion:
And as always, there's lots happening at Gotta Pixel! This month it's March Mania! A different challenge each week and prizes along the way! Click here for info on Week 1.
