I am a day behind on my website, but this is the kit for yesterday. I will get caught up this weekend.
The zip kit file today holds nine (9) frames. They are basically the same frame, but with different colors and special effects. Some look best on white backgrounds, but don't forget to try them on black. The above picture is a summary of the frames in the kit.
If you don't like the large flower in the left upper corner of the frame, just cut it out.
The kit has 2 different psp files in it. One at regular size, and the second at 50%. There are also individual pngs and jpgs in the zip.
They are free to use in your creations; whether you just create for fun ... or for profit. You may NOT resell them, as I did make them. Credit to me is necessary when you use a graphic. Otherwise, they are free to use, recolor, edit, etc.
This is a close-up of the detail on the frames. I had a lot of fun playing with special effects on this frame. There's a lot of different colors and effects, so maybe ONE of them is just perfect for your scrapbooking projects or card-making creations.
And last, but not least, is a free png to pick up here on my blog. I love the colors in this one, but really couldn't pick a favorite.
I hope you had a great Wednesday, and I'll see you back here ... very soon!
free zip files for mini kits; free for you to snag

Good Tuesday morning!
Yesterday, I shared my little mice I made- the newer ones.
Today, I took one of my mice and tubed it, and added it to my new little mini, one day kit, offered for free at my website. Items are in a zip file, and free for you to snag and use in your own creations. All of the items in the card are in the kit.
I used these graphics to create an ART POSTCARD to send to a sweet friend. Along with the card, she will get her very own mouse. She is getting the one that is actually in the picture. It will go out today, after I get it printed on photo paper. I put everything in a bubble envelope to protect the postcard and mouse.
She loves getting these little items.

Today, I'm posting the pictures of the little crocheted Valentine's Day mice I made.
The top picture shows the difference in size. The little hot pink mouse is like the ones I posted yesterday, but this time I took a picture with it's bow on.
The hot pink mouse was made with a single strand of yarn. The bigger white mouse was made with 2 strands of yarn, which made it thicker.
Each mouse has stuffing in it to make it like a little stuffed head.
I made the pompom noses. You can't make out the white nose on the white mouse as easily. On the bigger mice, I tied the noses on through the front of the face before sewing both sides together. The ears of the bigger mice are also stuffed.
This is the four different mice together. The white mouse, the cream colored mouse, the bigger hot pink mouse has button eyes for eyes that were sewn on. And finally, one of the 16 mice with the bow that I gave out to co-workers and friends.
I really like how they turned out. It took 2 days to make the 16 mice, 8 done each evening for a couple of hours.
It's been a wonderful holiday. The sun is shining, and it's a little warmer out. The snow has melted! Yeah!
Enjoy the rest of your day.

Today, I have a basic February calendar for you. Of course, February is almost over, but I'll try to get the March calendar up earlier.
February has been a very strange month this year. A lot of days have been in the 40's, and lots of sunshine. We have had snow, usually on the weekends. But there has been a day or two where it snowed on a week day.
On Friday, the 15th, it started in the morning. I left early from work by about 1 hour and 45 minutes. I was planning on going to my daughters, but after she and her daughter had flu last week; her husband was now down with it! My husband had a vacation day, so I headed home.
It really snowed pretty good, and we had more on Saturday, and throughout the night, because there was morning snow in our street this morning! Funny ... it's supposed to be back up into the 40's tomorrow! Amazing; but I love it!
Tomorrow is Washington's birthday; also called President's Day. I am off, and that is very nice.
The last time I posted, I wanted to show you a picture of my Valentine's Day presents to co-workers. Unfortunately, my phone was NOT sending my pictures to my email box. My husband got it configured for me, so now ... I'm up and running again.
I put 8 of these little mice in a black bowl. They don't have their bows on them yet. I made a total of 16 mice. Three of them have magnets on the back of them to put on the fridge.
I wanted to make one that my granddaughter could play with. Being almost 3, she is still a little young to have items with glued-on features.
I made 3 bigger mice. One is hot pink, like the ones above, with a cream colored nose. This time, I made the pompom and tied it through the front of the face. I hope to have those pictures tomorrow.
Her eyes are heart-shaped red buttons, with a little flower sticker attached. The bow on hers is sewn on it's head between it's ears. I think this will work.
I also made a cream colored mouse, and a totally white mouse. I will also have pictures of those tomorrow.
Everyone at work loved their little mice. I also gave them a small box of candy hearts with sayings. It's traditional for Valentine's Day, and something sweet is always wonderful.
I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day. My sweet husband bought me a small orchid plant with white flowers tipped in red. I still have the orchid plant from last year, and it has little buds on it now.
He bought me some chocolates in a velvet heart-shaped box. He knows how I love keeping them to store my scrapping items in. It is beautiful.
The card he bought me is the absolute sweetest he's ever picked up. I was totally "blown away"!
And here is a little something in a png graphic for you today. These are 8 small flowers, and can be used freely in your scrapbooking or card making.
I have several kits up now on my website, so hurry on over and check them out. There is a zip file for downloading the items. Items are free, and can be found in psp, png, and jpg format.
Till tomorrow; have a great day. It's almost 4 pm now, so it's almost over.
Take care ... and enjoy!

Good, good morning,
I am working at home today, and is almost time for me to get connected. First, a post for today.
The above png is your free png graphic for today. It is from yesterday's kit 13-0207, and can be picked up at my website.
The kit comes with psp layers, pngs, and jpgs, all zipped together.
This little graphic was done yesterday and represents my new kit posted today. Kit 13-0212. It is also free to snag.
It is red and black kit and has about 8 flower frames like the one above. There is no writing on those items, but left for you to decorate and use as you like. Below this flower frame, made smaller for this post, is a flower chain. Use as an accent or border by placing several together. (There are more items in the kit/not shown here.)
I've been busy making Valentine mice. The little faces are shaped hearts turned upside down and little round mouse ears attached. They have white or pink pompom noses, which I also made. Little eyes are the movable kind.
I'll have pictures tomorrow.
I took them this morning, but lost track of time, so I haven't edited them yet.
Check back tomorrow to see 9 of the "meeces" in a bowl. I want to add a bow to their heads where their ears are, if I have time. I have 7 more in the works, as I have a lot to give out.
See you tomorrow!
Have a great day!

Blogger is working for me again. Yahoo!
So ... I am back with some new kits. I've revamped my website, and am offering free kits again.
They are more like mini kits, but it's a great way to add new graphics to your digital or physical scrapbooking or card making stash. (I work on a canvas of 600 x 700, so the graphics are NOT huge. I know downloading huge kits always cause my computer to belch ... and then I have to resize them to keep and use them. I don't download many at all since they are usually so huge. The graphics are 300 dpi.)
I couldn't decide whether to stay with my website, and then decided to give it another try. Everything on my old website came down! And voila! A brand new start!
This kit above is 13-0203, and it started on 2/3/13 (Sun.) and ran for six days. It ended Fri. 2/8. I present several items each day in a zip kit. They come in psp, jpg, and png format. They can be used digitally, or printed out and used physically to make your own creations.
Even though a kit has ended, it is still on my website. It will be till my website gets full, and then older kits will be taken down to make way for newer kits.
They are free to use, and to sell in any creations you use them for that you make with credit only for my graphics.
The only thing you may not do is sell them as yours. You may not put them on a disk and sell them.
Otherwise, they are completely free for you to grab and create with.
Here is one of the pngs for you grab from my blog from kit 13-0203.
This is my second kit: 13-0207. It started on Sat. 2/9 and ends today 2/11. In the zip for this kit, I put all of the items for this kit on day one. With Valentine's Day being so close, I wanted you to have the opportunity to use any of these graphics in your Valentines that you might be creating.
This kit comes with two different backgrounds, and a second saying: Crazy For You instead of Sweet Valentine.
And here is a blogspot png from kit 13-0207 for you snag right now.
Tomorrow's kit will be up tomorrow morning. I'm trying to stay a kit ahead so I always have something to publish on time.
I also now keep a folder for future kit ideas. They hold many items for future use.
I'm glad to be back ... and I hoping everything continues to work. It is very frustrating to get on a roll and then fall off ... due to technology. Sometimes its just life that causes a lapse in publishing, too.
Enjoy the graphics.
