I Am Moving ... to a new blog.

Well, it has been a CRAZY few weeks!!!  Started a new company, a new group, and now a new blog!
http://www.digitaldesigndivas.blogspot.com/. I'm thinking that this one will probably be layed to rest because 2 is hard, 3....well...I really don't have that much to say!

If you haven't joined me yet on Crafter's Digital Art Center...PLEASE DO!!!  It is a brand new group, run a little differently from other (from what they tell me...not sure of the differences...but that's what they tell me).  My group is Digital Design Divas.... please come on!!! I NEED HELP!!!

Take care and I hope to see you soon...at the new location!

We Are Now A Group!

OH MY GOODNESS!!!  Talk about your "suddenlies"  I am living on a roller coaster these days... not the up and down part...but the FAST part!!!  Got the site up and running, now its time to find the people.  One of you sweet ladies (Tracy) told me about a new group that was just started June 2 called "Crafters Digital Art Center"....(see the link in the left column)  and now we are a "Group" there!!!  I started the process earlier tonight thinking it would take a few days... NOT!!!!  The lady that started the group (Presilla) hand held me through the whole set up and I already have THREE members!!!  That happened almost immediately, in the middle of the night!  So now I actually have to do something with it!  OMG!!!

I love that CDAC is a new group because it isn't so overwhelming and it is easier to find my way around than Paper Craft Planet is.

And get this, I have already learned how to do something with digital stamps that I didn't know could be done just 30 minutes ago...because of a great tutorial.  I don't know why I never thought of it...but hey, I've had other things, ya know?  ANYWAY, she showed how to change the dark outline to a light 20% so that it prints just a light/light line on the paper... then you can color it to look like an original colored piece of art instead of a stamp that has been colored in.  VERY VERY COOL!  I'll be doing some of that soon...if I find the time that is.

ANYWAY, come join my group!!!  I NEED people!  Just click on the link to the left then Join Digital Design Divas group.  It'll be fun!

Whew!  4am again... where does the time go?!

Oh! and THANKS AGAIN Tracy!

Just Call Me Ms. TOMATO HEAD!!!

OK, so Andrea was in charge of drawing caricatures of us....

Hers makes her look 20 years old!!!

Mine makes me look like a tomato with eyes and hair!
(No, this isn't the original...but I still look like a tomato)

She kept saying.... it's suppose to be a CARICATURE!!! Your features are SUPPOSE to be exaggerated!!! THANKS, BUT NO THANKS!!! Since I have the final say because I turn them into digital ... some of those chins bit the dust! GONE! (oh that it were that easy, right?)  But THREE!!! COME ON!!! No one wants to see that, right? One and a half is plenty to see!

I came up with a link picture...you can see it on the left.  If you decide you want to help us out...PLEASE DO!  You can post it to your blog as a link to http://www.digitaldesigndivas.com/

OK, I'm tired again...take care and GOOD NIGHT!


For real this time!  Sorry to all of you that may have gone to the shop yesterday and this morning and found it down.  WE ARE BACK!!!

The main issue was that when the lawyer wanted to change the Angel Policy EVERY THING had to change!!!

The good news was that there are no pesky names and signatures ON the picture... that will need to be added to any final cards or products ... on the back, or the hang tag, or web page... but it isn't ON THE IMAGE!!!

I had to take it off of almost 90 pictures that were already done... then recreate all the .ZIP files that you will download and modify the file that tells all that how to work!

WHEWWW!!!  The things I've learned in the last week.... I went from ZERO knowledge of how to create a web store, to up and done in one week!  even with having to do everything 2 or 3 times!  ARRRRGH 

If ever you want to do that, just ask, its not nearly as horrible as I feared...but VERY VERY VERY detailed!  There are about 30 steps (never counted but there has to be AT LEAST that many) to actually getting a single digi loaded ready for sale!

But, we are there with 70+ images, for today anyway... I have more to load... and changes to the home page to make... that's another day... today I have errands to run.

Have a great one!



At least I hope so anyway!  I haven't tested it out 100% yet, but if you see something you want, give it a try and if there are problems PLEASE just let me know!

I still have TONS of stamps to add...and we are going to change the header...and who knows what else!  BUT, I wanted to get this thing up!

Some cool thing you can do:

  • Create a wishlist...for yourself, or for friends to buy for you!
  • Sign a Guestbook (please do!)
  • Buy gift certificates  
  • And of course, download immediately!



The Me I See

We are getting closer and closer!  I'm thinking sometime this weekend we will have lift off!!!  There are 60 stamps loaded already...more ready to follow later, I just have to get them ready for automatic download.  WHOOHOO!!!

One more sneek peek....

"The Me I See"

I think something happens when you cross the magic 50 year mark. (It may happen sometime later, or maybe even sooner for some but, it will happen)  Suddenly, what other people think of us means very little and we begin seeing who we really are... We are all QUEENS of our domain!  Hence..."The Me I See" 

No matter how the outside looks...we know who we are on the inside....Beautiful Women All...created by the Most High God!

Almost There!

I was up all night figuring out how to do the website!  Feeling quiet clever now because I've about got this sucker figure out!  It is actually "there"... just not "loaded".  I only have about 10 stamps loaded...as samples to see how things would look.  OH MY GOSH!  What a lot of work!!!  Forget all the work to create the site... the "maintenance" is going to be WILD!  I have a new appreciation for all Christy has to do to just put one picture in!!!  Believe me!  she's earning her $$$.  I honestly don't know how one person does it all!

Anyway, I am REALLY tired and sleepy so I had to stop before the last step of adding the software that lets you download automatically...no emails required from me.  Too much thinking and focus required for that!

I just wanted to let you know that we are closer than you think!!!  And, if you are reading my blogs you will be the first to know!

Take care all, I'm OFF!!!

I'm Back!

Well...made it back to town and haven't stopped working since!  Andrea had TONS of new drawings that I have to convert.  She draws them by hand and I have to scan and convert them. 

And, I think I'm going to try to build the website myself so I had to start that whole process!  Not so sure how smart that is!  But, its another opportunity to learn ... and save money ... it just may take a while!  You have to pay then wait for them to set something up...then pay for something else and wait.... LOTS of waiting!

In the meantime, here is one of the funny ones:   The frog is saying...

"NO! NO!  That's OK!"

Made me laugh anyway!


Hi All,

I am still out of town so I feel like I'm handicapped without my CorelDraw and ways to add pictures to what I say...but I wanted to write anyway...

I just looked at my list of visitors this morning and I am, once again, amazed by the internet!  It just boggles my mind that I have had visitors from so many countries in the last 3 months that I have been up and running.  CRAZY!!!  The list is at the bottom ...

 I know that some were just quick stop overs on the way to some other blog, but still!  I just wanted to thank all you guys...and most especially you that continue to come back and even comment!  I love hearing from all of you.  I don't always respond because I'm not exactly sure I know how....

if I comment to you after your comment, do you know it???  Does an email come to you???  I feel like I'm replying and no one ever sees it.  If you do or don't (and I'd really like to know) please know that I do read every one (now that i know how to get an email sent to me) and appreciate all you have to say!


This is the list...I think it must be sorted by who came by first... I didn't sort it, the software that tracks it did.
