Share With Me Please

I have opened a new account with Mr. Linky.  This allows you to add a text link to the Share With Me Please page when you use one of my FREE sentiments on a card/project/layout you have made.  I decided to go with Mr. Linky because it will allow me to keep the linky closing date open-ended (In Linkz would only allow a 30 day period  for each link-up with the free account which meant I would have to create a new link-up every month).

I have converted all the links from the old link-up page to this new format.  I hope you will consider using this feature so that I can see what beautiful things you are making with my digital sentiment creations.

Keep Calm…

Keep Calm Anaheim Ducks Tumber-2

 

 

 

 

My immediate boss at work is an Anaheim Ducks fan.  I have had this idea for a long time to create a tumbler for her and with the school year coming to a close, I decided now was a good time to give it her.   I wasn’t sure what to put on it but then I decided on going with the “keep calm” phrase replacing “carry” with “duck”. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Keep Calm Anaheim Ducks Tumber-1

 

 

 

 

On the other side I chose an image from google images of the Anaheim helmet and placed the team name underneath it on a slant.  I think it turned out very well and she loved it a lot.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

That’s it for today.  Enjoy the rest of your Sunday :-)

InLinkz & Share With Me

Hi friends, it appears that InLinkz has decided to now charge for their service and my “trial period” has ended.  This means the InLinkz link to add your card on the Share With Me page no longer works :-(

I am not willing to pay for the service so, for now, please add any links to cards you’ve made using one of my sentiments to the comments area on that page (see Share With Me link on the navigation bar above) and I will be sure to visit your page to view it and comment.

If anyone knows of another free service similar to InLinkz, please let me know so I can take a look.

Masculine Get Well Card

Spent some time down in my craft dungeon today.  I got the idea for this card the other day when someone was asking about ideas for a masculine card for a golfer who was sick. The juices started flowing and once I formed the card in my mind, I could hardly wait for the weekend to get here so that I could put it together.  I’m loving the play on words that I came up with..

 

Feeling Under Par Masculine_apieceofheartbog

 

I found the golf bag on google images and added some Band-Aids to the front of it.  I colored it with my copics and then popped it up on the card front.  The inside of the card is also an image found on google images and colored with copics.  Although you can’t see it very well in the photo, the golf ball was covered with some glossy accents to give it a shine.

That’s it for now.  Enjoy your weekend!

Father’s Day

I love my Dad!  He tells the silliest jokes but they make me laugh.  He’s generous, gracious, considerate, sensitive, kind, and thoughtful.  He’s just a really great guy and he makes me smile.  I think my girls would agree that he’s the best Papa ever!

I made this card with love just for him.  It was made using digital papers and I created them all.  Also used was my newest digital freebie sentiment offered here.  I added some buttons and a ribbon to finish it off.

 

Fathers Day_2014_apieceofheartblog

 

Here is a peek at the verse I created for the inside …

 

Fathers Day-1_2014_apieceofheartblog

 

I certainly can’t forget about my husband, the father of my children.   He’s pretty awesome, too.  I don’t think he ever expected that he would end up with two girls given that his family is all boys.  But he’s a great dad and he loves his girls to pieces.  Here is the card I made for him.

The Friday Freebie…

Hi, all.  I’m here with a freebie for you.  But first, some news.  If you aren’t interested you can go ahead and scroll down to the bottom of this post to find the download links.

Some of you may know that there may be some changes in my job situation soon.  I work for my local School Board and at the end of this month 3 schools will be closing.  This is only the beginning.  Over the course of the next few years, there will likely be a total of upwards to 10 or more schools that will be closing in my city, in part due to low enrollment but also because “they” say that the cost of repair is greater than the cost of building a new school.  Only 1 new school is being built to replace the 3 that are closing this year.  That means that there will be some job shifting and bumping happening.  I will still have a job when this is all said and done ... I’m just not sure at which school as I'm not certain whether I'm a jeopardy of being bumped at the school I’m in. A little confusing, I know. Try living it.

Last week, I applied for 6 jobs that were posted on our Board site and out of the 6 I applied for, I received 3 interviews (not bad!). I don't want to leave the school I’m in now. I love it!   However, I felt that I needed to at least try to secure a job by moving up a grade level and have some control over where I end up.  Grade level (not as in a child’s grade) is what our seniority and pay scale are based on.

I didn't get any of the jobs I applied for although I did come close with 2 out of the 3 of them. I was told by both principals that my interview was fabulous, my personality and expertise really shone through but it came down to seniority. It will be interesting to see who was successful when they post the list next week. I have a feeling that one of those jobs was filled by someone who has only 20 days seniority on me but we'll see.

There are 5 girls in our school office and we make such a great team. We all get along so well together it will be sad to see any one of us leave but none of us are secure.  My school is scheduled to close in June 2016.  If we haven't already been split up by the bumping that is happening in this round, we will definitely be when we close.

I’m trying not to stress out because ultimately it is out of my hands but that’s easier said than done.  We were supposed to hear this week whether or not we’d be affected by the bumping but it keeps getting put off.  Think good thoughts for me .. and, if you are so inclined, add this to your list of prayers for me.  I know that I will end up where I’m meant to be so I try to focus on that as much as possible!

Ok, with that out of the way, it’s time to move on to the freebie.  With Father’s Day arriving soon, I choose to do this simple sentiment.  As always, click on the link(s) below the preview to download this freebie.  This sentiment comes with or without the frame which was also designed and created by me.  If you love it, leave me a comment.  I always love hearing from you!

The Friday Freebie (and more)…

Hi friends.  As you know, my daughter is fighting a really big battle right now.  Let me tell you, anorexia is a monster of a beast!  I am so proud of her for how hard she is trying in her recovery as she struggles to overcome the thoughts and fears that hold her a prisoner to this disorder (they can be relentless!)  She’s had two sessions with the counselor so far.  I believe that counseling is going to play a very large part in the success of her recovery. 

I think what people fail to realize is that an eating disorder has much more to do with the mental state of mind than it does with food.   Most people believe that the simple solution is to pressure one to eat and once they do, boom, they’re fixed and all is well again.  Of course, eating is a very important aspect of recovery, however, most (if not all) anorexics will be physically well long before they are mentally well and recovered from the disorder.  I realize that unless someone is personally affected by this disease, there really is no way one will 100% “get it”.  I’ve done a lot of reading since my daughter’s diagnosis and I’ve learned so much and I continue to learn more and more every day.  I wish that there was more of an understanding of this disease.  It’s one reason why I’ve chosen to share about my daughter’s disorder on my blog and why I will share things from time to time about her recovery and healing process.

As we walk this road to recovery and as she faces each challenge one by one , I pray that she will grow confident in who she is and learn to believe that she has so much to offer to the world around her.

“Life’s challenges are not supposed to paralyze you, they’re supposed to help you discover who you are.” ~Bernice Johnson Reagon

My freebie this week is dedicated to my daughter.  As always, click on the link(s) below the preview to download this freebie.  This sentiment comes with or without the frame which was also designed and created by me.  If you love it, leave me a comment.  I always love hearing from you!

Happy Mother’s Day

 

MothersDayBrunch6_kayla

 

This morning my daughter and I were home alone because my husband and other daughter were working.  She wanted to do something special for me so she surprised me with a delicious brunch.  She sets a great table complete with a candle and a vase with homemade paper flowers.

 

MothersDayBrunch_kayla

 

Shown:  A toasted english muffin with peanut butter, fruit salad (bananas, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries & pineapple), with a zucchini, broccoli, & mushroom frittata. There was vanilla yogurt for the fruit salad as well but I hadn't put that on yet.  A cup of hot cocoa is off to the side.  Yum!

And here’s the happy Chef. Love her to pieces!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

I enjoyed it so much, I ate it all :-)

And while she was busy putting this surprise together for me, I was down in my craft dungeon making a card for my mom.  Designer paper is from Michael’s Recollection.  I can’t remember which pad this is from but I will post it when I go downstairs and check later.

The Friday Freebie & A BIG Thank You

First, I just wanted to let you all know how much I appreciate your love, care, concern, thoughts, and prayers regarding the situation with my daughter.  Keep praying for her because she really needs them. Please pray for me, too.  This recovery process is not something best handled by the weak but sometimes I feel like I just don’t have the strength to get her through this.  I know that probably sounds terrible but I can’t ask for help if I keep my thoughts to myself.  I know my daughter is in there somewhere but right now ED has the best of her and it’s fighting to keep her trapped in a horrible existence of a life.  ED comes out as anger, fear, sadness, irrationality, anxiousness, irritability, impulsivity, negativity, obsessiveness, and so many other negative characteristics.  And all of these come out at me specifically because I’m “safe”.  Sometimes I honestly feel like a punching bag for her emotions to wreak havoc on.  I often slip away from the room for 5-minutes of sheer, gut-wrenching sobbing until I can pull myself together enough to go back to being the strong momma that she needs me to be.  I have no doubt that she has no desire to act out this way.  She agonizes over feeling so hopelessly helpless that it’s excruciating to watch.  But she also tells me, in moments of clarity, that she loves me, she appreciates me, and she’s so fortunate and blessed to have me for a mother.  And that, my friends, is what makes it all worth it!  We will get through this together.  ED will not win!
Now let’s get to that freebie!!  I didn’t want to leave you guys without a freebie this weekend but I didn’t have the time nor umph to make something new for you either.  So I pulled this out of my bag of projects that I’ve created and put away for a rainy day.  And since it’s been raining all week, I figured what better time than this to share it.  I created this one so many years ago and I’ve improved so much since that time so I hope you think it’s good enough to share.  There is some texture to it but it’s hard to see in the preview.  Today, I’m giving away a 12x12-inch quick page layout.  All you will need to do is print it
As always, click on the link(s) below the preview to download this freebie.  If you love it, leave me a comment.  I always love hearing from you!

Welcome to this months blog hop with...

This months theme is...

Graduation

 

My project for this hop is a graduation card.  I have a couple of nieces and a nephew who are graduating next month so I’m not sure who this is for yet.

 

Graduate Blog Hop -1_apieceofheartblog

 

 

Graduate Blog Hop-closeup_apieceofheartblog

Graduate Blog Hop_inside.apieceofheartblog

   

I printed the word Graduate right on the card front and then used my Silhouette Cameo to cut it out. When that was done I embossed it using my Cuddlebug and a fancy folder.  I mounted a verse on the front using pop dots and then added a couple of brads and wrapped some ribbon around them.   The inside of the card was also printed and cut out with my Cameo.  I stamped the word Congrats! on with a clear stamp.

The Friday Freebie (and a little info)…

Before I share this week’s freebie, I just wanted to briefly let you know what’s been going on with me.  A little less than one month ago, my 23-year-old daughter was officially diagnosed with anorexia.  It’s been a long month of tests, blood work, ECG’s, more blood work, struggles, heartache, anxiety, did I say struggles? .. you get the picture.  She is a very sick young lady and we have a very long road ahead of us as we do everything possible to help her overcome this horrible illness.   I am sharing this with the hope that you will be understanding if the freebie is delayed, or perhaps not even available from week to week.  Although I love to create and I do find it helps me relax, my daughter’s health must take precedent.  My only request is that, if you have friended me on facebook, I’d appreciate it if you do not mention this on my fb wall.  I know my daughter would be very upset (and maybe even angry) if she knew that I put this out there to the world but I truly believe in the power of prayer and felt that it was something I needed to do.  Since she’s is a facebook friend, this isn't something I want published on my facebook wall. Private emails or private fb messages are fine.  Thank you so much.
Today’s freebie is dedicated to my “little girl” in her struggle to keep on living. As always, click on the link(s) below the preview to download this freebie.  If you love it, leave me a comment.  I always love hearing from you!

Friday Freebie Is Coming

The Friday Freebie will be delayed but I will be posting it before the end of the day! I am sorry it's late. As I said last week, I have a very serious issue that I am dealing with in my family and my time must be focused on that. However, having said that, I find that creating is very therapeutic for me so I do still try to create as much as time allows. Thanks for understanding!

Birthday Blooper

The other day I was going through my cards and I realized that I gave my daughter the wrong card for her birthday, lol.  I had made this one with a daughter sentiment on it that I completely forgot about.  It’s okay, though, because I like the one I gave her better :-)

 

Happy Birthday Daughter_apieceofheartblog

 

 

Happy Birthday Daughter cupcake_apieceofheartblog

 

I cut the cupcake from a digital stamp I had downloaded as a freebie and colored it with my copics.  The swirls were cut individually and popped up with pop dots, each a little higher than the next.  The “pearls” were made with some White Opal Liquid Pearls.  The paper is just some loose scraps I had on hand. I’m not sure which company it’s from.

 

 

 

 

That’s it for another day.  Friday Freebie day tomorrow so don’t forget to come back and check it out.  Until then …

Keep on keepin’ on,
