S**T Happens...

I don't know if you guys already noticed but the forum and gallery at DSO are down, since yesterday. Bunny explained everything on the DSO Blog:

"We are experiancing some technical difficulties with our webhosts. They have been bought out by a new company, and the new companies changes are reaking havoc on our site. Please note I am working to resolve the problem as soon as I can. The gallery and forum will be closed until I can get the issue resolved."

And let me tell you... Don't be fooled by the lightness of the message.
Yesterday was CHAOS, Bunny was working like crazy trying to solve everything, dealing with a very UNSUPPORTIVE support service. Stress levels way up high!

So...please bare with us and be sure that EVERYTHING POSSIBLE is being done to get it all up and running again!

But, on the bright side... the DSO Blog still up and you can still get Daily Download of the BOY TIME MEGA KIT. And today you can snag the papers I made for it!

Boy Time papers

(Just click on the image to go to the download page).

Boy Layouts...

... using Felt Happy Garden.

Nite Owl was wondering if the kit was also good for scrapping for little boys. And since I had promissed my friend Chelly an lo of her son using the kit... here it is! ;) I got carried away and made one for my Lucas as well... ;)



Hope that helped you with the convincing... ;)


Finally... a freebie! ;)


As I had promised, I'm back with a itty bitty freebie!
It's a small one, because I still didn't manage to stretch my hours in the day... LOL
But hey, I'm trying and it's something, right? ;)

Before I give you the freebie I'll shamelessly pimp my new release again, ok? If you already visited yesterday, I'm sorry... just scroll down for it!
If you didn't see it yet, please take a minute to oooh, aaaah a little bit! ROFL
And, if you do so, how about leaving me a comment with your opinion? *batting eyelashes and saying pretty pleaaaaaase*

So, here it is... FELT HAPPY GARDEN

It's very cute, with elements made of felt, 'hand-stitched' and full of friendly faces! It includes 20 papers and 56 elements and is ON SALE right now for only $4.00!

And here's my little gift for you, hope you like and enjoy it!

Is it Thursday already???

OMG... Time sure flies, doesn't it?

I have been having computer trouble all week and now I'm behind everything (again!!)... I wonder if I'll ever catch up???

And to make things better, I'm coming down with a nasty cold! My SIL came to spend the day with me and the kids yesterday and I spent all day sneezing and feeling like crap! I HATE sneezing!!! HATE IT! HATE IT!

Now, get this... Every time I sneezed the kids started laughing, thinking it was some sort of funny game! LOL Lucas even started to emulate me! After every sneeze he would throw his head foward and say 'ACHOOOO'... ROFL Sooooooooooo CUTE!

16 months old and already making fun of Mommy!!! HAHAHAHA now to business (lol)...
I have a few things I wanna show ya'll...

First of all, look at what I made! My first hybrid project! YAY!
Thanks to Bunny who came up with these really cool Memory Box Templates.

The templates are avaliable in the store at DSO:

I have a new kit in the store today, and it's called: FELT HAPPY GARDEN.

It's a big kit with 20 papers and 56 elements. It's very cute, with elements made of felt, 'hand-stitched' and full of friendly faces!

Because of all the computer trouble and my freaking cold I didn't manage to have a freebie ready for today, but check back tomorrow and who knows what you may find... *hint hint* ;)

Before I go, there's something else I wanna show you...

2. I get a bit freaked out when flying things come too close to me;

3. I'm left-handed and yet can only stitch using the right hand;

4. I change my hair color and style every chance I get;

6. My life is totally different from what I had envisioned and yet I couldn't be HAPPIER than I am now (ok, ok... winning the lottery would help! haha);

7. With all the 'facts about you' challenges and layouts and with being tagged I feel like I'm running out of facts to share!!! :P
