Freebie Friday - John Lennon Quote

I missed Monday Release, sorry everyone I am pretty sure I can only handle Freebie Fridays.  This week involved a lot of sewing for me and other random things happened.  I just don't have enough hours in a day to post everything that I need.  My biggest problem is I love sleep, I will sacrifice sleep when I absolutely have to but the six hours I get a night I sort of need.  I also don't get a lot of time to sit, type, upload, and format with Booga constantly trying to "help" me (that is why you sometimes see random typos or things just not making sense).

I also started the ball rolling in getting back into the outside the home "workforce" in some form of hospitality management (Sales, Revenue or Reservations).  Keep your fingers crossed for me because I am a tad excited with the prospect of wearing a suit, make-up and having a manicure every other week (something that really hasn't happened in a while - lol).  I have been a work inside the home mom/stay at home mom for almost five years now, I miss interacting with people over the age of twenty.  I love my children with all my heart and soul but when mom quotes SpongeBob to her adult friends it is time to find something else to do.  I am also looking at going back to school and getting my Business Degree, I figured my eight year break has been long enough and I spent a lot of money/time on school not to have that piece of paper.  My children are 8 and 4 and I have spent the past five years with them (every day, almost every waking hour), I know my job is not done and will never be "done" but I am ready to move on to the next chapter of this unwritten book.

I will continue to do the newsletter and the Freebie Fridays, sadly I can't keep up with the weekly releases.  Sorry for the long winded post but I wanted to let everyone know what is going on and that I am not just ignoring the Digi Shoppe, I am ignoring all of social media equally.

With that I leave you with todays Freebie - one of my favorite quotes by John Lennon

Freebie Friday - Big Brother/Big Sister Sentiment

When I was pregnant with Booga (my son) the only thing I wanted for my daughter was a Big Sister shirt.  I thought it would be so cute if I got a picture of my daughter holding my son with her Big Sister shirt on.  In theory this was perfect it was going to be a wonderful shot that I would cherish forever.  It did not work like that at all my daughter wanted NOTHING to do with my son when he was born.  The only pictures I got were these:

Booga is about 4 days old as you can see the Princess is plugging her ears because he is screaming.

Here is another photo I tried to get a couple months later once again not much success.

Freebie Friday - More Baby Sentiments

It is definitely Baby Season I had one friend who had their baby Monday, I have another who just hit 40 weeks (she is miserable, poor thing) and I have another friend due in three weeks.  Not to mention the friends who are due in April and May.

Booga asked when I was holding one of the babies, if we were going to get one of those anytime soon.  I told him probably not.  He was a tad disappointed.  I asked him why was he sad.  He then responded because he wanted to blame all the bad stuff he did on the baby.  I admit I appreciate his honesty, so I must be doing something right.

I hope everyone has a great weekend, I will be starting my seeds for my garden (yes I grow from seeds and yes I have a garden or try to have a garden).

Freebie Friday - Baby Sentiments

In the past month I have had one family member and a friend of mine give birth to new bundles of joy.  I also have two other friends who are due in the next month and another who is due in April.  So I have been making lots of baby cards recently and decided to expand the sentiments and offer them as Freebies.

The footprints are actually from a stamp I created from my son's day old prints.  I do admit I miss those little toes and that new baby smell sometimes but I then remember I can sleep through the night without being bothered (there is the occasional fur baby visit due to weather booms).  For now I will settle for rent-a-babies getting my baby snuggles in without all the hard work of a new born.

Happy New Year! With Freebies

It is 2014 and a fresh start for the Digi Shoppe.  This year I plan to be a tad more organized and concentrate even more on the Digi Shoppe.  I have been thinking of ways to improve the Digi Shoppe and one of the ways I thought of was a theme every month.  

What has changed:
  • The first of each month I will release a new theme in our monthly Newsletter.
  • Each Monday I will release three to four stamps from the collection.
  • The last day of every month the complete set will be available to purchase on the website.
  • The Freebie Fridays will be associated (for the most part) with that months theme.
  • More photos and blog posts featuring projects using our products (i.e. my children may actually age in scrapbook years)
  • More activity on Pinterest, Facebook, and Twitter
  • I am also looking at doing more Giveaways this year
What has not changed:
  • There will be a special freebie or two in the monthly Newsletter
  • There will still be Freebie Fridays posted every Friday

I am very excited for the new year and I can not wait to see what 2014 has in store for the Digi Shoppe.  With that I leave you with a couple of Freebies to celebrate 2014.

Today's Freebies features the 2014 Pantone Color of the Year Radiant Orchid - Happy New Year!
