A Brand New Way to get My Freebies!

Take a look over to the right, and you'll see a cu freebie called "Love Spoken Here." Underneath it is a button, and when you click that button, it will take you to the download. I'm going to try that for awhile and see what happens. See, the thing is, you've gotta tweet or share on facebook before you can download. So now I'll be posting more freebies, both here in the posts, and over in the right hand column, too. And I promise to be more faithful about getting them up for you.

I keep apologizing for not posting for you, so I guess I should tell you why I'm not as consistent as I'd like to be. When my husband and I returned from the mission field in Ukraine three years ago, it was because I was very ill. Since then, my attempts to hold down a job have not been real successful, due to complications from the illness. But Jeff's job doesn't quite meet our needs, so I am trying to make a "living" from home. The things I'm doing are creating hybrid printables (like my scrapbook kits), cards, and other papercrafts, plus writing and illustrating children's books, and finally, teaching English as a second language to online students. So to keep my skills honed to my craft(s), I'm constantly learning more.

There are things I'd love to do— I'd really love to take some classes from Hummie, for instance—but even the small enrollment fee of $5.00 per month is more than I can spare. Not to mention the time it takes to do the classes.

And, of course (as you'd expect from a missionary), I'm very involved in my church, and have a side-ministry teaching English as a second language to the Spanish-speaking populace here in north Texas.

So I'm quite busy. I sell my designs at Divine Digital, exclusively. I used to design for other stores, as well, but decided to focus on really being a part of the community there. So there are daily downloads, challenges, and other team-related stuff to do, all of which doesn't bring an income.

And then there's you. My frequent guests and beloved followers. You are the reason I design. And I LOVE giving you freebies. 'Nuff said. Here's a new freebie just in time for Valentine's Day!

Write a little note to your honey! (As always, click on preview to download from Media Fire.)


  1. Just a quick note to let you know that a link to this post will be placed on CraftCrave in the DigiFree category today [13 Feb 10:00pm GMT]. Thanks, Maria

  2. very nice , thank you !

  3. Thank you so much for this post. I want to let you know that I posted a link to your blog in CBH Digital Scrapbooking Freebies, under the Page 5 post on Feb. 14, 2011. Thanks again.

  4. Not a good idea for people who don't use Twitter or Facebook. Thanks anyways.

  5. That's too true, Monkey Toes. That's why I'm going to keep on giving you plenty of reasons to keep coming back. If you don't use social media sites, just pop in here and download the other freebie (I'll rotate them, so this freebie will go to the "Pay with Twitter" column next)!

  6. Thanks for the cute freebie. I'm glad I found your blog thru DivineDigital. Your artwork is very nice. I couldn't find the CU button (or the Pay with a Tweet one either); I'd rather post a comment to you directly as I only have a Facebook account, and I use it primarily to stay in touch with my older son, who doesn't like email. Thank you for giving us a variety of options to "pay" you back ... LOL!
