IT'S A-L-I-V-E!! & Freebie Memories


I know I have been only focused on my computer technology lately...but...sometimes these things can consume me and gobble up my time....After two days of non-stop command prompts, reboots, installs, uninstalls, registry cleaners & driver sweepers...MY HP IS ALIVE!!!!! WOO HOOO!! The only problem is that I ordered a new computer...well, not really a problem...I will just have to wait a lot longer to get the Cintiq )-;...

HOWEVER...
TAKE A LOOK AT THIS BEAUT of a MACHINE!!!


It came down to a choice between the Dragon tower and the Zeus tower

I custom built this...."no more headache" ultimate graphic design machine. While I was hard at work on reviving my HP, my hubs was getting bored and decided to search for a graphic design computer. All week, we searched and found ABSOLUTELY NOTHING in the stores, so he found this website where I built my  first custom machine last night!!

http://www.cyberpowerpc.com/

This is the FIRST time I have built my own computer tower (although I have done quite a bit of tweaking of my own on previous machines) and I had sooo much fun!! GOSH....this site is def. a NERD's CANDY STORE!! I chose to have the white tower case with a BLUE neon glow throughout....can't wait to see it! I rushed the order...for an extra $109. This confusingly did not mean that the shipping was also rushed...darn. By the time I realized that I would have to pay an extra $175 to overnight it, I had already reached my spending limit on specialty parts and there was nothing that I could part with...so...it will be shipped out Tuesday through UPS from California and I should HOPEFULLY get it by this coming Thursday (that is...if the postal people in Buckeye don't let it sit in Phoenix too long). I am so excited to get to try out the speed on the Intel i7!!!! YEAH BA-BEE!! There is a 3 year warranty on all parts, so I should be cozy for a while (-; I can't wait!!

While I was working tirelessly on my trusty ol' HP (which I LOVE by the way), I discovered that Adobe had an upgraded DESIGN SUITE CS6!!!!!!!!!! How did I miss that one??!!!! SOOOOOO....I upgraded my design program too!!! Can't wait to use the new Adobe Design features on the NEW Dragon  & start drawing again!! Since I revived my HP like a good Dr....I am going to set it up for all of our business stuff (the Heating & Air Conditioning Business). I did not order a new monitor because...ONE...I have a really nice one...and TWO...I can get one on Craigslist for less than half the price....


My new Graphic Mojo Dragon has been built & ordered!!!!




Now...enough about my obsessive GEEK SQUEAK...LOL!!
I have been re-thinking how to better organize the freebies I have on my blog and on TPT, so I am working on some organizational strategies to make finding the free stuff easier! I also want to make sure that those of you with a MAC (not my cup of tea) also get the freebies I post...will be working on some links and storage clouds soon (-;



Below you will find a link to a PDF file I have uploaded onto Google Docs. Once you open the file you will be able to click on each of the picture links to go directly to the image where you can save or copy it.
Thank you for following my blog!!!!!!


Take this link to the Google file that includes direct links to each frame URL location. Just scroll over any image once the google doc opens and then click the picture. The link will take you to the image (-;

    1. Thanks!!! My husband worked really hard to save the money to buy me the Cintiq as a gift and I felt soooo bad when the computer crashed and the money had to be reverted elsewhere...at least he'll get to look at something awesome while in the office ...hehehe

  6. I like your graphics. Do you ever take requests? Next year we're doing a TEAM theme and I would love to have a jersey to use to put their name and number on.

    1. Yes I do. You can email me @ 3amteacher@gmail.com. Although, I am not technically taking requests this month...email me and I will work on getting you a jersey as soon as I get caught up on the previous orders I had before my puter crashed (-;

    1. Thanks!! I can't wait to get it...even my husband is excited to see it. He has even been looking into purchasing a triple monitor panel for me...but my office is the smallest room in the house...It is already about 10 degrees hotter and I can't imagine what it will be like if we had a monitor like that....to hot for sure!!

  22. Thank you very much!! Quick question... When I click the picture it comes out with a black background, how do I get rid of that? I know I can do it in Word/PowerPoint but it will take out all the black lines in the border too. I'm so confused.
    Congrats on your very cool new computer!

    1. All of my graphics have a transparent background. When you click on them from the blog, you will see a black background, but only because the background is actually clear. What you are seeing is the background that shows up when you view larger images on the blog. Once you save the image, you should no longer have that black in the background. Try to insert is into word or view the image from your picture viewer on your computer and see what happens. Let me know and we will go from there to figure this out (-;

  42. These are great! I am having trouble getting all of them though. I downloaded and unzipped the files from tpt. All the frames pictures on the first 3 lines are there, but none of the frames from the last 5 lines. Anything I'm doing wrong? HOw do I get the other frames pictured. Thanks so much for these!

  43. I have a mac and can open (at least the ones I wanted ;) ) Also, how do I credit you/your site when using the frames?

    1. You are very welcome!! I hope you get a lot of use from the freebies and just so you know, I recently updated the free frames and borders file available on TpT. I also added a few new frames to the mix. If you click the TpT link at the top and visit my shop, just download my featured freebie to get a few more frames to have fun with.
