Money problems

I had money stolen from me and ended up having to do 4 charge backs. One I know was to a scrapbooking site (Gotta pixel) one was to what I think was a scrap booking site but not really any clue as it just has a persons name on it. One was even to Barns and Noble. And the forth one was to some place called AP9 Value Max.  This Value Max place also took money straight out of my checking account. There was even money taken straight out of my account to something called Onieda as well as a few others that I did not totally catch the name off from the woman at the bank.  I have been doing scarpbooking for years now and have been shopping at Gotta pixel. I e-mailed Stacy Carlson and told her explained to her what happened and don't you know the woman banned me from her site. I can no longer go to her forum. I can't even begin to tell you how much money I have not only spent at her site but on her products. I hope she never bothers to come to my site because I will ban her as soon as she does. I hope when she tries to dispute the charge back to paypal that she also shows them my e-mail with the explanation on it because if she don't I will. This situation is costing me almost $500 and when you live on a fixed income of only $700 that does not leave much to live off of the next month. When I'm going to get money just to keep the electric on I have no clue.

Missie MD Designs

It is with a heavy heart that I must tell you that a couple of weeks ago Missie passed away. she never woke up at all. She was able to pass away peacefully. Missie will be greatly missed.

Anyone who wants to make a kit and sell it in her name for the proceeds to go the brain cancer research may do so. Missies husband has given us permission to keep her store open and to help keep her dream of helping the child with brain cancer.

Someone from DXD will be making a gray ribbon with Missie's name on it to be put on the previews. In your description you must also put "Made by (your name) in loving memory of Missie". This way people will know that it was not in fact made by Missie but for Missie.

Zip files should be named MD_Designs_(your name)_(kit name)
Files should be (your name)_(kit name)_item

If you can try to use gray as one of the colors in the kit. The reason for gray is that is the color of the ribbon for Brain Cancer.

I was the families wishes that I wait until today to break this very sad news to everyone. They did not want to ruin anyone's Christmas. It is also the wishes of the family that they not be contacted. Please respect their wishes.

Digi By Design is now under new management. I took over the management of the site late last week. I have no clue what I am doing and I must have gone nuts. But with Andy's help I'm learning. I have even hired 2 new designers this week. One has her store set up and products uploaded but not put in the store yet. The other one I'm just getting set up. I have already spoken to another designer who says she will be joining us on DEC 1. I am dedicated to bring you more designers in the coming weeks. I want us to continue to be one big happy family.


The ladies at Digi By Designs have been going nuts. They have totally lost their minds. You should see what all they have been doing. They have been making things just so they can put them on sale at 98 cents. this is their Mid Month madness. Help them get over it by coming to the store to see just what all you can get for 98 cents each. The sale will run Nov. 15, 2008 to Nov. 20, 2008.

Also on sale will be the store mega kits and the store mini kits. Those will all be 50% off Nov. 14, 2008 to Nov. 16, 2008. these are just the store kits that will be on sale not the designers kits.

New Kits

We have some new kits coming out.

The first is our Sea World kit. You will be able to buy any part of it or all of it. We have it broken up into five parts.



Sea World is not your average beach kit. It features the fascinating and colorful world that exists under the sea. From dolphins frolicking in the ocean to seaweed and coral, Sea World is perfect for photos of your new aquarium or a visit to an underwater park.

40 papers

5 bead strands

5 brads

5 borders

10 “fishies”

5 flowers

10 frames

5 plants

5 ribbons

10 tags


All the beauty of the Orient is yours with Acorn Designs’ Harmony. From tasteful flowers to oriental craftsmanship, Harmony will sooth the soul and provides a perfect background for many types of photos.

I found this kit to be great with double page layouts.



Oh yes, My Midnight is a climber. She climbs all the way up to the top of the door and loves to sit there. That is when she is not sleeping in my lap.


Fantasia is loaded with elements, I believe there are 12 different flowers. I have not done a count on this kit yet. But it is a great kit for those little girls you have running around the house.


Now for a goodie for you. I made an extra frame just to go with this kit. And it is your for FREE just by clicking on the preview.

So hope on over to Geni and see what it is about.

Deal of the Day and a gift

You will find the whole store at Digi by Design on sale at 40% off. Not just Acorn Designs but the whole store. The mega kits will all be 50% off.

I thought I would offer you all a nice gift today. This is a Quick Page made with our brand new Summer Morning kit. This brand new kit is already in the store so it too is 40% off.








Friday, September 5, 2008



Starting September 6 DxD will be having a "Deal of the Day" Sale.

30% Off anything in the store

With Gift Certificates given to customers, they could be anywhere from an additional 10% to 20% That could equal a total of 50% Off !!!! Watch your email for surprise discount coupons. After that we will have more surprise sales, with surprise discounts like a "One Day Only".

But don't worry, we will send you all notices on the "Deal of the Day" sale plus any surprise coupons.

We plan on having some items on Auction just for fun so come visit and have fun with us!!

please note, coupons will only be good for that day of the sale and can not be used in conjunction with any other coupons .


I have put all of our Quick Kits on sale at Divine Digital. All of them are only 2.99. That is 2 Quick kits for only 2.99. Don't know what  a Quick Kit is? A Quick Kit is a cross between a Quick Page and a Mini Kit. You get a simple quick page back ground and 3 or 4 elements that are sized to fit. You just put them on where you want them. So your page does not look like a stamped out version of everyone else's page. This let's you customize the page the way you want it. This is what the Watermelon Pickle Quick kit looks like. There are several Quick Kit pairs to choose from.


Done forget to stop by the store on Saturday for the Super Saturday Sale. This week we are putting a brand new kit on sale at 50% off. The new kit is Boys only. You can buy the whole kit or you can buy just part of the kit. If you buy the whole kit it is like buying 4 parts and getting the fifth part and the two alpha sets for free.



Notice the stitching on the pocket, It is a perfect match to the hand cuffs. 


Notice the Pop-cycle stick bowl in this kit, not only did I draw the darn pop-cycle I had to put all those darn pop-cycles together.  The jar is a CU product made by our very own Becky.


Notice the tire in this kit, it was hand drawn by me. Also notice the wagon, it was hand drawn by Beth.



Notice the swing in this kit, it is all hand drawn by me. That took a long time to get the right perspective on it.


Notice the stitching on the pockets, these all had to be done by hand to get the letters right on them.

I know so many people are trying to go GREEN these days. I have found a FREE site that will help you do just that.

Ideal Bite has a lot of really great tips that you can use. One thing that most homes don't have any more is fire places. Older homes like mine that used to be heated with a fire place are really great. All year long I never throw out any paper or cardboard. I save it all up. Then in the winter when I am having to heat the house I light a fire. My fire place will raise the temperature of the downstairs by 10 degrees. I only keep the furnace set at 55 degrees and then I let the fireplace do the rest. This reduces the heating bill of this house by about $100 a month. All that paper and cardboard don't go into the landfill and I get what I refer to as FREE heat. So check out Ideal Bite and see what you can do to help save the planet.

loving you

I have to say Midnight has herself a best friend now. Or at least someone who puts up with her. But either way Midnight loves Piglet. Where ever Piglet goes Midnight has to follow. So I did a layout showing just how much my little heathen loves her new big sister. Now how Midnight is sleeping with her head rested on Piglet. I liked this layout so much I turned it into a quick page and decided I would share it with you all. The kit used was Old English Rose by Acorn Designs. this will be available at Digi by Designs soon.



I've been tags by http://melissas-spot-7.blogspot.com and http://rosemadedesigns.blogspot.com/

How this works
These are the rules:
1. Link your tagger and list these rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.


1. I do not have cable or satellite service. I have Net Flix and can have 4 DVD's at a time out. So I don't have to be ripped off by Comcast Cable.

2. I have 4 fur babies. 3 cats and 1 heathen of a kitten. Because of the heathen I have to kitty proof my house to keep her from killing herself. (look at yesterdays post)

3. I am very happily DIVORCED. The only way I want a man now is one I can send home before morning.

4. I am a penny pincher and will do my best to get everything for free or for very little cost. My Christmas shopping is done all but my 2 grandsons and so far I've spent a grand total of $5.00

5. I live in a house that is over 200 years old. It is owned by my daughter and was owned by my mother before that. It was the second house ever built in this area. The first house is across the street from me.

6. I have really bad nerves and even I don't like me if I don't have my medicine. Even with it if I am under to much stress I can still have problems. But 95% of the time I'm fine.

7. I have 5 grand kids. All by one daughter with ages ranging from 3 to 11. They can come to my house as long as they stay outside. I call them the wrecking crew.
