I don't know what happened to the freebies I had set up for you all this week, but for some reason they've been bumped out of Blogger. Not sure what happened but they're no longer here. I'm going to try and get some links for them and get them posted again. What a pain. lol.

So... What do you think of my little blog makeover? I LOVE IT! I used elements from my kit Goodnight Sweetheart to make the header and the rest. And, did you notice my new logo? I hinted to some huge changes for Inspired Designs this week. Well... The biggest of the changes is that I'm going to be taking a break from kit designing for a while. I'm going back to my roots and designing wordart exclusively for one of my favorite stores... 9th & Bloom! :) I am so excited to have the chance to work with some of the best designers in the business, in one of the best stores in digi-land! Yay!

I hope that you'll all follow me and my wordart designs over to 9th & Bloom. I've got lots of ideas for some fresh and funky wordart that I'm sure you'll all love. And... I'm going to be offering a wordart freebie each day again! It's been such a long time since I did that so I'm super excited about it. Starting on Monday, October 3rd I'll be posting those. :) So get ready for some total awesomeness to come!

IN THE KITCHEN: Plus recipe card FREEBIES!

Happy Saturday!!! I hope you all had a great week! As I mentioned yesterday, Emma started Kindergarten and I was totally freaked out about it! I can't believe that my baby is in school. She's loving it too! When she got off the bus she was all smiles and was full of stories about her first day! I was so happy for her. Here's a little pic of my princess on her first day of school. I just love her snazzy new glasses!

While she was gone to school and things we're a little quieter here, I got to finish up my latest kit IN THE KITCHEN. And as you can guess from the title, it's a kitchen/cooking/baking themed kit. I've been wanting to create one for quite some time now and one of my CT girls requested it too. So... here it is! :) I really love the brightness and vibrancy of the reds and blues, don't you? I know you're just gonna have to have it for your stash so hurry on over to my SUN store and snag it and it's coordinating packs for 30% OFF each! (Each preview is linked).

I just adored these recipe cards so I also included the samples of each card! Yay! These are some of my favorite recipes. :) The cookies are to drool over and the wings are heavenly!

So... Just right click on each card to save! Enjoy!

If you're still reading this post and you haven't hurried over to my SUN store to snag all of this delicious awesomeness (is that even a word), here is some creative inspiration from my Inspired Designs Divas as well as a few from the Sunshine Sweeties! These ladies rock!

I told you they we're awesome! :) I hope you all have a great weekend and that you enjoy the recipe card freebies!

Catching up!

WOW!!! What a busy few weeks it has been! I've been so busy that I totally neglected my blogging. Bad Blogger!!! :) Today is my 35th birthday! Happy Birthday to me! Also today is the first day of Kindergarten for Emma! I sent her off on the bus today and I've been so lonely ever since. I can't believe that my baby is going to school. It was strange being here with Aiden, just the two of us. It's going to take some getting used to. At least it's only for half days. :)

I guess I need to catch you up on what I've released these past few weeks. Just in case you missed any of it.

Here's some previews of what's new in my store. You can visit my store HERE.

Here are some layouts that were created by my talented Creative Team as well as some of the SUN CT Ladies. They're amazing!!!

And if you'd like to snag some freebies made with these new products, hurry on over to the CT Blog and see what my Inspired Designs Divas have waiting for you. HERE.
