Vicki over at Paper Hugs & Die Cut Dreams decided she wanted headings and a few other things to match her current design by Lara and her "Crazy Larry" siggy!! Here let me show you:
Visit her blog to see all the headings...it's an eggstravaganza!
She also wanted a clock so I looked a bit for one to match. I remembered Connie installed a new clock recently so I decided to check it out. Well Toolshell Flash Clocks ROCKS!!! THANKS CONNIE...you helped me and didn't even know it!!! Anyway Toolshell let's you customize your own clock! HOORAY...I was able to incorporate her design onto the clock...HOW COOL THAT????!!!!
I also added a column and helped her with a few more widgets...but wait! She also had this WONDERFUL idea to divide her Supplies List in her post...so I added this:
- First item
- Second item
- First item of embedded list
- Second item of embedded list
- Third item of embedded list
- Third item
- Fourth item
Now all that automatically populates each of her new posts! And see there's her fun siggy ...back for a little dance, the infamous "Crazy Larry". OK maybe not infamous!
Thanks Vicki for coming up with these great new ideas! Sounds like I have some updating of my services to do!!!

I'm so happy to help Nicole unveil this latest design. It's fun and funky!!!! Nicole sent me some of her favorite papers for inspiration and told me she wanted flowers and the main colors to be black and pink. I made the first sample banner and sent it to her. Then I checked email immediately and saw an email with one last bit of inspiration from Nicole. Well apparently I didn't need that because I totally nailed it! I saw her vision and she didn't even know it yet!! I just love it when that happens. I really wanted to find something neat for the Librarian in Nicole. So I looked around and found a boring pair of black glasses and an old library check-out record card and the funk was born!!!
It looks like I need to offer a few more new services! Notice the blogger bar at the top hides...oooohhh...aaaahhhh. And she has her own custom search widget as well as link navigation at the top!!!!
I must also add I just love her spectacled "mini me"...she makes me laugh. I got the idea one morning to just stick those glasses on her avatar (made by matterofscrap.com) and I thought she looked so cute I had to share. It was a fun little freebie! Now she's telling you to check out Nicole's BRAND NEW Etsy Store! I made a banner for that too and Nicole decided to use her little spectacled store clerk on Etsy as well...she's SO FUN!
OK one last Nicole item I'll show you, her watermark. We just loved those glasses!!!

Denise from Storage Units, Ink & More asked me to put together a small ad banner to use for her Core'dinations Card Stock sale. The kicker was that she wanted to surprise one of her designers by using one of her VERY CUTE card designs in the ad banner. I was especially excited when she told me that designer was my very own sister, Susan!!!! SO MUCH FUN!!! I must say I did a great job keeping it under wraps. :) So here is the little ad banner I put together:
Be sure to check out Denise's Sale...she's a GREAT LADY with a GREAT STORE!!!!!
And here is a little something silly I made to honor Hopper! I've been, of course, keeping up with the Hopper Saga on Susan's blog and even talking to her on the phone. What!?...on the phone you say...NO WAY!!!! Yes, I'm a real person who leaves her computer chair every now and again and does things the "old-fashioned" way. Anyway when I heard that Hopper was still in "doggie-jail" and saw his mug shot I just HAD to play with Photoshop!! I know, I know I'm busy...but I still like to have a little fun here and there!!! So check out Hopper in his full-on jailbird suit:
I only wasted about 20 minutes on this...really! Plus it was Sunday!! :)
Have great day everyone!!!!

I have received quite a few requests since the release of Lauren's new design. I am knees deep in a couple of projects right now so I haven't made time to respond to those requests. Rest assured your place in the queue is locked in as soon as I receive your first request. I will, however, still respond individually just as soon as I carve out a little time to do so. The queue is at approximately 6 to 8 months at the present time but I'm working as hard as I can to get that time decreased. THANK YOU so much for your interest in my services!!!!!!
I will also be revising my Queue (yes, I need to update that number as well) soon so that you can better see where you are in line. To do this I will use your first name and last initial. If you would prefer to remain anonymous until your new design is released please send me an email with a name or code of some sort I can use in place of your name. ;)
Another little note to my existing queue: I haven't forgotten ANY of you, I promise! I've got my spreadsheet with all your names and wonderful inspirations. I'm SO SORRY you have to wait so long, I really am!!! It's totally ridiculous, I know!! As time goes on I get faster and more efficient but I also have a family...one child is a baby boy...need I say more. THANK YOU SO MUCH for your patience with me!! When we start working together I hope that you see that I go to great lengths to ensure that your design is COMPLETELY YOU and that YOU LOVE IT!!!!!!!
Have a wonderful day!

...spent with Lauren Meader. Her design is totally complete and I think it turned out great...it's so Lauren! She was also my very first Wordpress blog design! She got a brand new "custom theme"...you Wordpress users know what I'm talking about. I loved Lauren's enthusiasm during the whole process, Lauren you are a joy! Thanks for being my first. I heard what you said about the watermark. ;)
I must also give a BIG HUGE CYBER HUG to Kurtis...I couldn't have gotten her published without you!!!! THANK YOU!!!!!!
Again I used a couple flourish vectors from dezignus.com.
I also used flowers and butterflies purchased from Vector Stock.
