Dropping By To Check In

First off, thank Tammy for the gobs of work she's been doing making posts for me when I can't, both here and on the Freebie Vault blog. When I can upload but don't have the time to post, she does it for me. Wifi at McDonald's is how I'm getting a lot of this done.

As of this post I have thru template 312 done. Coming up both here and at FV I have themed templates and masks, monthly calendar ones and 5x7 photos. I have some alpha sets, both free and for a mega collection headed to the store. I will be uploading the 345 loose buttons to Lulu when time allows, in the meantime a cluster was uploaded the other day. To answer an email, the baggie was from Attic Treasures' blog and isn't included because it's not mine. I'm sure it's still available, if not just ask her. Although I have been offline for the most part, as you can see I have been busy.

Another thing, starting with the 300 series templates, I have chose to upgrade the way I present the files by inserting text and jpg tips with alternate layouts, options or help using various parts. You may also notice some of these templates are simply paper making templates. These are commercial use. I know how much of a pain it is to get the simple idea together, coloring is only half the battle, then if you want to do that again in a different theme, you have to start over. For the basics you won't have that problem. These do take a lot of time to put together. You may find them tucked within a full page template but the words paper maker will be there on the preview.

Feel free to leave a comment requesting a style of template you wish to have. I'm running out of ideas or sometimes just being creatively lazy, lol. These don't have to be full page templates. I have thought I might offer some element templates as well, which many of those will be CU.

An update about my situation: I am trying to save to get my car back on the road. It's hard when I'm paying out so much $$ for others to take care of my children. I've had to turn down a couple of very good, high paying jobs because of lack of transportation. Once I have a car it's only a matter of time before I get a job, then a home and ultimately back online each day.

I miss each and every one of you and all of the comments and emails have touched my heart. It's one of the things that has kept me going and kept me attached to my mouse.

I'm glad that your spirits are still high, you have been in my prayers.... I'm so proud of you for staying strong, and continuing to be positive - we all have much to learn!

I have been loving the templates you have been offering lately, so your creative streak is alive and well... You said we could ask for something, or offer an idea - some of your templates that have been my favorites to play with are the ones that have symmetrical shapes - such as the rows of squares (looked like the Brady Bunch, haha) and I have so much fun coloring those in... maybe do something with rows of circles, or a sidebar of triangles lined up somehow... something like that. Oh, man, I suck at describing things, but hopefully you get the gist ;)

Hang in there, and know you have tons of people cheering for you!
