thought I had lost my PC for sure when I got some weird error codes while working in PS. Everything froze up, lost what I was working on and had lots of trouble getting computer to re-start. But for the moment, I have fingers crossed it's going to hold out a little longer. Managed to finish a set of elements and papers for my Color Stash series. These are in lime green. http://digistyledesigns.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_207&products_id=14300 You do have to register and be logged in so I will try to get back later with a 4shared link for those who don't want to register with the store. (There are a fair number of freebies in store, however.)

Today was nice but tiring. Got all of our sweaters, jackets, and all but one coat washed and ready to be stored until winter. Did some laundry and cleaned out some dresser drawers. Messed around a little in back room where my niece will stay and felt overwhelmed by all the sorting and organizing that needs to be done. I've got to figure out where to store the things I want to keep while making room for Rachel's things. This house is just too small for all our stuff! Also learned why Tyler didn't put the futon back into sitting position when he last stayed over. He'd nicely removed the linens and folded them up so I'd wondered why he hadn't refolded the futon. Now I know - he couldn't figure out how to do it because I couldn't get it to work today. I do store some boxes underneath and at first thought one was in the way but it's not that. But we'll figure it out. Meanwhile that means less floor space back there for working. Tomorrow morning SIL will drop Rachel and Kristina (R's younger sister) off to work and we will see how far we can get. Hubby cooked us a nice fish dinner tonight (guess that's last night? Friday) and we had watermelon for dessert. Finished up a couple products: http://www.4shared.com/zip/USNhOXIqce/ws_layeredpprbow.html?

Again severe thunderstorms are hitting our area. I had a doctor's appointment at 11:15 yesterday and then some errands to run. Electricity had gone out while I was gone and stuff I left up in PS when I hurried out to appointment was gone. Had to start computers back up. Got home maybe thirty minutes before the heavens opened up again.. More homes damaged this time - fortunately not ours - but no reported injuries. Expecting more of same tomorrow. Hard to get any work done. BTW the keys were found, niece won't be coming until weekend for room cleanup as there was a conflict with SIL's plans and transportation. Have a paper for you tonight and tomorrow hope to get something else up. http://www.4shared.com/zip/P8QuNuBaba/ws_waterlily_paper.html?

I was up late last night - Mr. Killjoy (as my friend, Felice of Felice Originals , refers to fibromyalgia) was making himself known. So I worked a little on some files before trying to go to sleep. Then my husband got up for his first day back to work. It was pretty much the usual and I was beginning to drift off when the doorbell rang. At that time in the morning (before light) and with him only having closed the door minutes before, I was certain who it was. Of course, before I could get there, he was frantically ringing the bell more and banging on the door for fear I was sleeping soundly. Hubby was in a panic state. He claimed he'd unhooked the big bunch of keys he keeps on his belt to lock the door and suddenly they were gone. Didn't know where he'd put them down. So he was flying around retracing all the places he'd been trying to track them down. No luck and we are talking about a huge bunch of keys, not something that could easily disappear. Finally he grabbed his spare truck key and left for work so he wouldn't be late. Back to bed I went and tried to sleep, expecting to soon get a call from my niece who was due over this morning and wondering if I'd have time for a shower before she arrived. Fitful sleep. Got up a little before ten and took quick shower, dressed, had cereal. No messages on phone and no calls. Here it is nearly one in the afternoon and still no word from Rachel. If she wasn't coming today, it would have been nice to call and leave me a message, then I'd have gone back to sleep for awhile. As it is, I've just done a little of this and that, nothing heavy because of pain level. I'm looking for the plus side here. Okay, it's a plus that we won't be doing stuff in spare room today (I'm not getting started in afternoon and evening!). It's a plus that we have plenty leftover from yesterday's dinner so I won't have to cook. It's a plus that I cleaned up the little work left in kitchen and have a load of laundry going - that's not a bad task on painful day. It's a plus that I put 3 new products in the store yesterday so I don't have to stay on PC much today. It's a plus that once hubby gets in (please let him have found his keys!) and has lunch I'll be able to go take a nap. And tonight, while relaxing with him, I can go through some more paper work that needs sorting etc. All will be well. And I will put something up as a freebie, just give me a few hours to rest. Hope your Monday is going more smoothly. If not, try to find a plus there somewhere. Hugs!
Hope everyone had a nice July 4 holiday? I know some had big plans with family and friends. Our grandson, Tyler, and his family went to TN on vacation. My LV friend, Stacey, was preparing for a big family get together. My husband was beginning a vacation that was not so relaxing for him. http://digistyledesigns.com/shop/index.php?main_page=index&manufacturers_id=85 While I was in purple mode, I made a free CU paper for you: http://www.4shared.com/zip/GsL3bN3Mba/ss4cu_CS_Purple_freepaper.html? Expecting more severe thunderstorms over next few days so if you don't see me on line, that will be why. Hugs!

Husband is on vacation for 10 days now. We went to dinner at Outback on Sunday for our anniversary - coconut shrimp appetizer, Victoria filet for me, Babyback ribs for him - our usual and shared a Chocolate thunder From Down Under for dessert. A nice quiet day. Today we've visited with family and BIL came by to fix replace damaged wood around garage door. Spent some time tidying up files but really haven't accomplished much. So I dug into old folders and am posting a mini kit I made a long time back when I was using D'Ambrosio Arts as trade name. http://www.4shared.com/zip/G2tEvRlSba/ws_DAA_innocence.html?

Don't know why Blogger was so uncooperative last night but seems to be okay now. We were lucky and pine tree out back is still standing and house is intact. Only got some heavy rain from Hurricane Arthur. Turned out too that this was not the week my son was going to Outer Banks - thank heaven. Have been busy cleaning out fridge and haven't watched news so don't know how bad damage was elsewhere. Surely hope it wasn't too bad. I manged to get 2 new CU products in store and can finally post previews.
Hurricane Arthur is upgraded to category 2 and we've been hearing tornado warnings for areas of NC. We hope to avoid brunt of storm but you never know. I've got 2 new CU packages to go in store tomorrow. Here's a sneak peak: then again not. Goggle isn't following thru on posting the images! Just tried the freebie and it stops before option of center, right or left. Enough! I'm going to bed and will try in morning.

Bad sinus headache tonight (hurricane off the coast so barometric pressure is probably triggering it) so short post. Here's a CU4CU beaded paper - full size. http://www.4shared.com/zip/y6gJtfLlba/ss4cu_beadpaper.html?

Quick note - have a free QP for you today: http://www.4shared.com/zip/3MWq2Gseba/ws_orchid_QP.html? We're expecting a category 1 hurricane to come in Thursday afternoon/evening here in eastern Virginia. Lots of people will be disappointed about holiday weekend. Hope where ever you are, your holiday plans go well. Be safe.
