NEW LINK FOR WINTER SHIMMER SET 2

7 Dec

Here it is. Zip password is itworksnow

ETA: Sorry, download link is no longer available.

I can’t begin to tell you how frustrated I’m feeling about this kink. I have spent the last 2 and a half hours trying to contact 4shared support to shed some light on this. I tried Live Chat help, and twice I got them on the line, and twice they just poofed out on me (there was no response and the chatbox just ended). However, I was able to give them the link so that they could check it out… and after waiting and waiting for more than 2 hours, there still was that –as veevs would say–blooming message on my download link.

Out of frustration and after 2 emails to 4shared support (with no response yet up to now), I decided to take out the link and reupload a new zip file (did the whole usual round of zipping, virus-checking, and test-extracting before uploading to 4shared). Well, I lost all the lovely notes left by all those who were able to download earlier without that blasted orange note there, and I totally feel bad about that.

And that’s not all. I checked the link and AGAIN there’s that orange message.

4shared, if you can read this, please please please fix that up! please!

As for you, my sweeties, do try to download this file and see if you can do it notwithstanding the sign there. I’m downloading it myself to test it again as we speak.

So so so sorry for the hassle. I hope you understand that this is not within my control, and I thank you immensely for your patience and kind understanding.

Make some wishes for me, please, that 4shared will fix this up real soon. Thank you so much.

sniff, sniff, sniff, sob, sob, sob

Nuts? Nuts? Anyone?

6 Dec

I’m looking at a bunch (and when I say bunch, I mean a WHOLE bunch) of letters from three different schools that my three sons attend (one in preschool, one in elementary, one in high school) and I’m slowly going nuts. Here’s a sampling:

* Notice of Christmas outreach program for the poor orphaned children (that’s nice. I have prepared the box of goodies; just have to find some nice functional toys to share with them… that my kids won’t kill me for giving away… deadline for wrapping all of this is like an hour away)

* Notice of FOUR different days’ worth of practices for some dancing activity for parents for the Christmas program of R (my kid in Sixth Grade) – now this is NOT nice. I don’t dance unless I’m under the influence of alcohol (and, aside from a few sips of red wine now and then, I have not had any alcohol in the last 20 years… and have not danced since too–publicly at least 😛 ). I didn’t go to the first 2 past practices and I informed them that I would do anything–clean the whole school after the program, maybe even lie down on the ground and turn myself into a mat?–just to be excused from turning the dancing activity into a huge disaster.

* More Christmas programs and Christmas activities, and a parent-teacher conference to boot–for A, my eldest in high school. I truly dread the PTCs at his school because they last forever and a day. But claiming the report card takes even longer, with more winding paths to tread along, for those who don’t attend the PTC… so what choice do I have?

And that’s not all on the list of school activities to attend to (and have I told you that they overlap on days and times?)… but let me not bore you to tears.

Now here’s my question: does anyone know of a doctor who can divide me into three, or maybe even clone FIVE copies of me (three to attend to these activities plus one more to attend to real life errands and another to do my Christmas shopping) so that the original me can stay at home and play?

😆

Let’s talk of better things, shall we? 😉

LivEdesigns Winter Shimmer Set 2 Preview

Let’s talk of snow and winter and Christmas (don’t no one mention shopping lists, okay? Shhhhh! )

😆

Here’s the latest set of Winter Shimmer (with the last set slowly nearing completion). There are 3 papers here, all in colors that coordinate with the first set and the third set still coming: JackFrost is a shimmery solid, toned paper; Magical Morning is another shimmery snowflake-studded one; and the last one (on the leftmost area of the preview) is a text-patterned paper with Merry Christmas in different languages all over the world (I googled these, but the only ones I can remember are English, Filipino, Spanish, Italian, French, Kenyan, German, Hawaiian, Dutch, Russian, Latin… and I forget the rest. 😆 )

This set also comes with an acrylic accent tag (from what I’ve read, acrylic is on its way to being one of the big scrapping fads) ; a gem-dotted frosty tree accent, and two metal frames with snowflake accents. (Thank you as always to atomic cupcake {totally fab}, and to claudmey and takatula of stock.exchange for the photos I used on the preview).

Here now is Winter Shimmer Set 2. Zip password is pax (which is Latin for peace, which I really need a lot of now.  😆  )

EDIT:

Please see post above for the new link and the new zip password for this Set 2 of Winter Shimmer. I really don’t understand what is happening to my 4shared links, but I uploaded a new file for you to download. Sorry about this totally unnecessary hassle. 😦

I know that I promised this within 24 hours… but in my part of the world, I try to make 24 hours stretch as much as it can and still, I’m not always lucky. 😀 Hope you like this just the same!

Oh, and before I forget, a HUGE HUGE THANK YOU to all of you who shared your snow and winter stories with me as you downloaded. I totally LOVE reading everything you write, and it always brings a smile to my face and warm fuzzies to my heart. Sending you all warm fuzzies as well, to keep you nice and comfy in your part of the world where you can watch snowflakes drift outside your window. And thank you too, for all the invitations to come and make snowangels in your yards. I just might show up one of these winter years. 😉

Have a happy day, my sweeties!

Ho Ho Ho

2 Dec

Here’s the last part of the Christmas Lullaby kit. It’s always a bit sad for me when a kit ends… but also exciting because that means I get to do work on a new kit! 😀

And because you’ve been soooo patient with the downloads of Set 2 (all four parts of them), this one will be real quick to download!

Here’s what Set 3 looks like:

LivEdesigns Christmas Lullaby Set 3 Preview

Here’s what Set 3 has: one highly textured solid paper, one glitter frame, one chipboard journaling tag with metal flourish accents and built-in flower brads, a Christmas flower jewel-accent, a paper clip with the same accent, and a safety-pin accent with the colors of the kit (with a bit of blue thrown in 🙂 ). The pin comes as a full pin to give you more flexibility; just use your eraser brush to adapt it to your layout. Thank you’s are in my TOU Credits. (And thanks also to Zela whose stock photo I used for the preview). As usual, all items coordinate with the previous sets and come without drop shadows. (I placed shadows on my preview though).

Download Christmas Lullaby Set 3. Zip password is happyhollydays … just a reminder… type in the password instead of copying and pasting it so that you don’t get any errors when you extract the files. 😉

ETA: Sorry, download link is no longer available.

I’d like to take this opportunity to give huge cyberhugs to all of you, my sweeties, who take the time to leave love as you download. I was a bit amazed that there were more than 330 downloads of Set 1 and only 53 comments. I hope there aren’t people who are hotlinking to the 4shared… I hope they’re sending their friends over here to download. It’s just the proper thing to do, don’t you agree? 🙂 🙂 🙂 So thank YOU, my dear friends. Wish there were enough words to express how wonderful it is to read your comments (and I do read them, each and every one of them, and they truly warm my heart… and inspire me to create more!)

Which is exactly what I am about to do right now. Create a new kit for you!

Have a happy day, my dearies!

Tonight’s the night!

28 Nov

It’s gonna be alright… Ain’t nobody gonna stop us now… Come on, everybody, sing along that Rod Stewart song along with me!!!

😆 How’s that for a flashback to the 70s huh? 😆

We’re finally launching the Big Project tonight. Here’s what the invite looks like:

Our Father ~ The Book Launch

Will post more stuff about it tomorrow. Just have to get through the launch tonight (and get through my closet as well: I have no idea what I’m going to wear, as I don’t own any dresses. Hmmm. Maybe I’ll go in my usual jeans. hehe) Can you tell I’m just a teeny weeny bit stressed about this? (I hate publicity; I like hiding in the background; I’m shy. Seriously! 😆  ).

Here’s part of the layout I made about this project (made the bigger layout as part of our Now We’re Rockin’ course lesson):

Okay, enough about that and on to our much-delayed freebie!

Lullaby and Goodnight…

The reason I call this much-delayed is because it took me approximately 6 hours to upload this to my 4shared site, a lot of fiddling around, a lot of waiting, a lot of harumphing, deleting, re-zipping, re-testing, some more harumphing, until I was able to get this uploaded. 😆 Turns out it was some kink in my zipped file, I think. It did okay with the extraction and password when I tested it, but for some reason it would take forever to upload!

So, phew!, at least it’s working now and I have the link for it! Yippee! You have no idea of how much I’ve been itching to get this to you (so I hope you like it, or … that would’ve been five hours gone to waste. hahahaha!!!)

Here’s what Christmas Lullaby looks like (This is Set 1):

LivEdesigns Christmas Lullaby Set1 Preview

I call it Christmas Lullaby because the colors are softer and more muted, sort of reminds me of a peaceful, quiet Christmas. There are 3 highly textured papers in this set, along with 5 different textured brads. (Loads of Thank You’s for the materials I used are listed in my TOU credits!) There’s more coming… I’m very excited to post the next set for tomorrow (alpha tags! woohoo! with enough space for a bit of journaling on them! ), so don’t forget to pass by for that one as well! 😉

ETA: Sorry, download link is no longer available.

Oh… and one more thing… since I’m really getting into the Christmas spirit, I think I’m going to come up with two more separate Christmas kits. Keep passing by for those too!

Well. I spent the whole day trying to upload this and now I have to ~groan~ start getting ready for the Big Project’s Big Event. Anyone want to go in my place and pretend they’re me? You’re most welcome!!! 😆

Have a great day, my sweeties, and thank you for the love you leave in my blog as you download! Hope you like this!
