Have been enjoying

some time out... some family time... as a result I haven't been spending that much time on the computer or net... could you tell?

I do have a new kit out this week though...

Sea Dreams... as a kid I spent so much time at the beach... I love the sound of waves hitting the beach... long hot summer days...

Images are linked

speaking of long hot summer days... we have one today... though if you believe the forecasters thats going to change this afternoon... drat it...

off now to chill with the kiddos... and perhaps find them some lunch...

New for 8 Jan 2010

Still Dreaming... in black and white with a couple of new products releasing today...

Dreaming... in black and white alpha #2
so I had already created a white alpha... so here is the flip side to the coin... this version while basically black allows any colour you have behind the white parts to show through...

Write about it... yeah okay a picture may be worth a thousand words but sometimes those words need a little bit of help to start them telling the story... you get 5 black line groups and 5 white... perfect for everything that way... well I think so anyway!

I am a really bad blogger...

Though in my defence it is the holiday season after all... the girls are home from school for another month yet... and I have been kinda keeping in touch with people through Facebook...

There is still so much to figure out there but ... hey its getting easier... somewhat...

I have been trying to get rid of clutter in our house too... D's room was first up for the treatment... heaps of crud removed from there and its now at last somewhat tidy... A's room is next and that is a huge job in itself... not quite as big as my office which is next on the list... though for that I think I might have to get some banana boxes and move things out so I can start with a fresh slate... NOTHING serious has been done in here since we moved in 7 years ago! I think perhaps its time... well to be truthful well past time...

But after finishing D's room yesterday I come and plonked myself down and got my first page of the year done! And its mostly with my designs so bigger yahooo for me! Sausan's font worked perfectly with the page...
