HAPPY LABOR DAY ALL!  I hope you're having a nice holiday weekend!  Enjoy this last fling and stay safe.

I've been cranking out some work lately, and you'll notice some slight changes and additions to the top of this blog page. Yep, that's right! I finally got my CRAFT STORE open online at Etsy, so I've put easy links to stay on this page so any of you interested will be able to browse my shop easily when you feel like it.  To celebrate my Grand Opening there, I've posted a coupon code for 10% off all purchases for the entire month of September!  Yeah!  Please do hop over and drop in for a look-see over your mug of coffee.  This store is for my real handicrafts which have taken over my house through the years.  My digital creations will remain freebies here on my blog.

But enough about me, lets get on to YOU!  In celebration of Labor Day, I am giving you a nice pack of papers called "SEPTEMBER".  I have noticed lately that I love papers with text already on them, especially the month names; so I decided to try my hand at designing some of my own.  Success!  I have more than half of the year's made, so around the first of each month here you'll find a FREEBIE paper pack by that month's name.  Hopefully, there will be several papers in the pack, and one will definitely have the name of the month text on it.  My creations so far are hugely different from one another, so don't worry about things looking the same.  They won't!  Colors also will be geared to the time of year on these.  I did well for September, there are NINE papers in this FREEBIE.  Here is the pack preview . . .

and here is the preview of the month paper with text


(There's been a huge response to this paper pack, so I'm providing a secondary download site.  If I'm am out of bandwith at the above link, try downloading HERE.)

Unzip this freebie right away, there's a coupon inside for you!

I'm amazed that I've managed to accomplish this much lately.  I set some goals and tried to stick to them, but I've also been busy with family activities and sitting with my grandbabes.  They are growing like weeds and so full of energy.  I'm completely exhausted after my days with them, but it's nothing some good sleep won't repair!  LOL!  I'm happy to say that all three of mine are delighted to be back in school.  They love going and love learning, and they love sharing all that knowledge with each other.  Oh, I remember those days myself!

I'll be back soon with more digi-goodies for you, so return often!  Meantime, I hope to see you visit and leave me a message at my new craft store!  I've made so many friends online that it still amazes me to pieces!  Hugs to all of you!

Thanks! I like the way the green has a sort of 'windy' look to it--perfect for scrapping pages about Hurricane Irene!
