ABC - What's Next for Me?? & a TAX SALE!!



Here is a tree that I made for a custom order that I chose not to use. I only have the B/W version right now, but I will add color later. Feel free to use it in your resources if you can (-;



Before I begin my post, I want to include myself and my TPT store for a Tax day 15% off SALE!!!
I'm a bit of a follower today...sometimes this can be a good thing...LOL


Click on the lovely picture to visit my TPT store! This is a ONE DAY ONLY sale...Don't blame me, I didn't make the rules on this one...I just included myself in the fun (-;




Now for my scheduled posty....
Sorry for my tardiness!! I tend to disappear when I am focused and I have been very focused lately!!  It is 11:35pm in Arizona and I decided to take a little break to chat!! 

I am getting ready to have a REALLY amazing giveaway soon (not for any specific purpose, other than the fact that all of you are completely amazing!!). The hubs is fast asleep on the couch...sigh (he won't go to bed by himself, so he would rather fall asleep in the office or on the couch in our living room)...and the kids are fast asleep as well. I still have so much to do, but I have to stop at some point and give my brain, my back, my fingers and my neck a break...AHHHH! I also have to give my rear end some exercise, it went numb at about the 11th hour..no joke...I have been drawing for about 15 hours straight...I didn't even shower until now & I used the windy weather as my excuse...hehehe... Even though I have a ton still to do, tomorrow will be a fun day...no excuses!  

We are going to go to Lowe's and pick out some flowers and plants to spruce up the front yard...it is looking like a desert I tell you...hehehe. I think there may have been a glimpse in the windy video I posted on Facebook this morning...yikes. All I know is that the weeds are partying up in our front yard & they need to go. Last Spring we hired a company (that I picked up while they were across the street) and had them spray the weeds. They put this red stuff all over and we have not had one weed until this Spring!!! AMAZING! Where are those fellows now?? I think we paid $200 for the front, back and sides & it was WELL WORTH IT! Pulling weeds in dry desert earth is not very fun. I love planting though!! Our roses are growing and they smell so good! They would be even more  beautiful if my son would stop being such a sweat-heart and picking them for me...hehehe...can't ever complain about that!!

Oh, well, I finally had a pickle out of the GINORMOUS jar of pickles my hubs bought (see my FB page for details), and I was so disappointed that it was not as tasty as I had imagined it would be...darn. I could only take a few bites before I lost interest - the pickle just wasn't keeping me motivated...LOL!
See how huge the jar is??!! Good Lord, what am I going to do with all of these pickles?? There must be some sort of creative craft or recipe on Pinterest...hahaha

As you all might know, I have been working on about 10 custom orders at the moment, but when I got a request from someone sort of popular - I had to JUMP on it (pun intended...hehehe).
I finished a button, some frames (still need to complete these), and I decided to squeeze in the funny lower case alpha letter set. I have been tracking how long different graphics take me lately and these ones are taking anywhere from 40 minutes to 2 hours...I think I am going to have to change my super power from last month's currently...I definitely need super speed!! Well, these letters are turning out really cute and I will have a set that can be purchased once I am done.

Here is a preview of the set that will be on TPT soon

Here is a little peek of the custom ones (not much of a difference, except for the cute little logo on the shoe). Can you guess who these are for?? When I got the email I was totally excited, but then when I started, I was totally nervous...hehehe I am always afraid that what I come up with will be completely off. 

These definitely remind me of the shape letters I started and haven't had time to finish...those will be next...(or soon...or maybe next month...LOL). Oh, if I could just multiply myself (and my computer) for a day....

I am currently working on a price list for custom graphics. Misty helped me, but I still need to be a little more specific. Charging for graphics is not as easy as it would seem!!

Well, before I leave you for tonight, I want to share a blog with you that I found! It is REALLY cute and Kelley, the creator has about 16 followers, but I know she will be getting a ton of followers! Her blog is absolutely adorable!!!!

Sour Apple Studio

It seems like there are so many blogs popping up that I just can't resist the temptation to follow!! 

Oh, 1 more AMAZING thing...

Jen over at The Teacher's Cauldron shared her Goldilocks unit with me today because she incorporated some of my graphics (and she is just cool like that) & I have to say that this one is def. my Favorite!! It is filled with really great resources and is completely adorable to top it off!! I did not see it on TPT yet, but you may want to keep an eye out for this one!!!

She is also having  a Bloggy Meet up for all of you who live in Florida, which there are quite a few of you!! No FAIR!! Tehehe! Well, if you are one of the lucky ones that lives in Florida, go check out her linky and sign up to have fun so that bloggers in Arizona (like me) can drool over the after pictures!! LOL!!









Well, have a wonderful night (or morning) and come back as there are some great things to come. 
Thank you for following my blog!!

    And no, my GOldilocks isn't on TpT yet - I still have a craft to add to it, but I don't have the construction paper here at home, so I can't finish it until I go to work - so that I can have a picture of the finished product -poo. I really want it up and running though!
    But THANK you for the shout out!!

  13. Hi Michelle:

    I had a mystery on my blog and YOU were the answer!
    (It took Miss T to solve the mystery--but I KNEW I had seen those frames before!)

    Your clip art makes me so happy. I downloaded a variety... but I am way crazy about the frames!

    I hope you are having a wonderful afternoon...

    I am sending you framed Bloggy Love!
