24 days of FREE christmas downloads

I am on cloud 9 right now! I seriously feel like I’m on a lucky streak. What better way to start the Holiday season then with FREE gifts. A few weeks ago, I attended an Open House and received a strand of pearls from Goldsmith Jewelers. My daughter actually wears them more then me! Ha ha! Then I received a $200 credit to myfonts.com from Minted.com. I purchased Bombshell and Jacques & Gilles from Emily Lime. They really are beautiful calligraphy fonts. And I have already used them on some cards I’ve designed for Petite Lemon for Shutterfly. I’ve shared a few below.

Then yesterday I got another email from Minted.com saying that I had received another $200 credit for this board that I created on their site. And I just used it to create some killer gifts for my friends for Christmas! I was going to use some of the designs that were already on there but found a way to upload my own designs onto them. I’ll make sure and show them once I get them (probably after Christmas). Oh, and here’s something I didn’t know about Minted.com, is that you can order Party Decor. I ordered a large cake stand and some cute striped straws. I’m starting to gear up for Char’s birthday party. I can’t believe it’s been a year since her tea party. I’m thinking a treasure hunt or mystery birthday party. She’s been into Peter Pan and Tinkerbell lately, so I think she’ll really enjoy that.

I wanted to make you aware of the 24 days of Free Christmas Downloads which me and a few of my awesome designer friends will be starting on Saturday, December 1st! So mark your calendars. You’re in for a treat! Don’t believe me? Go and see what we did last year!

 

Here are a few of the last minute cards I designed for Petite Lemon for Shutterfly. I really am excited the way that they turned out! If you would like to purchase them, just click on the image.

La La Love You Art Print Inspiration

Wouldn’t this print looks so cute in this room! I’ve been wanting to redecorate Char’s bedroom and I think this print I created for Minted is the perfect jumping off point to get me started! Now, if I can just get the paints out. Ha ha!

(Highly unlikely considering it’s been freezing cold lately!)

On The Wall Art Challenge For Minted

Here are the Art Prints that I submitted for the “On the Wall Art Challenge” for Minted. My favorite is the Llama filled with whimsy and bright colors. Please go and vote for me, starting on November 20th. You can click on each image and it will take you to the print to vote on. Thank you for your support!

 

 

 

I also tried a few photography prints. These are pictures we took in Yellowstone 4 years ago. I think Yellowstone can be so eerie at times, especially when the steam is rising from the ground and trees look like they’ve been petrified for centuries.

 

 

Gratitude Gift Box-Free Download

This is the last of 4 free downloads for Thanksgiving. I thought it would be nice to make a gratitude gift box. To make: Print it out, Cut it out, Glue it together. Then, fill it with something you are grateful for. Maybe you write a nice note to a friend and add some of their favorite treats inside. Enjoy!
