More Freebie Parts: CU 001

Good Monday, All!  It’s a little later that I am posting today.  I had a hard time getting going this morning!  My grandchildren cam and got in bed with me at 5:00 this morning. The older one, laid down and snoozed.  Not the little girl!  If that child is awake – everyone is!  LOL  So, after they left for school, granny went back and laid down for a bit!

Let’s get straight down to the freebie!  This week you get another two parts to our first CU(Commercial Use) freebies.  We have decided to do the CU every 3 months or so.  We both enjoyed the creative process and had fun with making this month’s goodies.

As usual, click on my links below for Parts 3 and 4, then, click on Miss Edna’s preview to go to her blog to download her two parts.  Miss Edna is an early poster, so, hers is always up before mine, but, if you haven’t been there yet, be sure to go!

Last week, we gave out two parts each, which are still available.  This week, two more, then, next week, the final two parts.  That’s two parts each so, you end up with twelve(12) parts by the time you collect them all!

Two New Parts Posted Now for “Summer Fun” Freebie!

Thank you!  Thank you!  Thank you!  Your patience will, hopefully, be rewarded!  I got my motherboard replaced by this wonderful friend, my PC guy, DirtyBegger.  He practically dropped what he was doing AND even allowed me to partial-pay for the repairs until ‘pay day’.  LOL  He is so good to me.  DB, I sure appreciate it!

DirtyBegger, for your information, has just started his own web-hosting service, well, with a fellow web dude.  They offer some extremely reasonable packages and are uber-dedicated to their work.  Their site is where I am moving to, as soon as all the mini-crisis’ lighten up!  LOL   If you are in the market for a plan, take a look at what they offer. I believe you will see they are quite comparable.  With two dudes’ heads, full of knowledge, I think they are going to be an asset to the web-design community!  The website is

HostingBonanza.com

After you click the above link to go there, at the bottom of the page, on the right side, there is a box that tells you whether they are online or not.  One of them usually is!  That is wonderful, I think!  You don’t have to jump through hoops to ask questions or comment, no waiting for someone to get back with you in most instances.  Someone is ready and available if you present them with any issues, should they arise.  It’s like walking up to a ‘window’ and having someone there to help you!  I like that!

(Disclaimer:  I received no compensation for this comment.  I have that much faith in these guys.)

I’m not going to bother ya’ll with any drivel today.  I have found some really great links for ya’ll!  But, I kinda pulled an all-nighter to get this kit out, so, they can wait.  Once I get some snooze-time, I will return and I’ll be more  sociable.  LOL

You all know the routine.  Miss Edna, she is such a doll.  She and I have been creating these kits since, at least, January 2011.  I know it is longer – the Fall of 2010(?), perhaps – I  just didn’t want to spend a bunch of time looking for dates.  LOL  We’ve been delayed before due to me and she is always so sweet about it, waiting patiently to post her parts with mine so that we continue in the same fashion, or, as close to a routine as possible.  I know she understands, as do you folks.  Some situations are just not within our control!  It is a really super feeling to know that she is so understanding!  Bless you, Edna!  I luvs ya!

Here are my two previews.  Click on the ‘elements’ for Part 3 and the ‘papers’ for part 4.  Each of the two files will contain an assortment of the elements and papers, though.  I know you folks have already been to Miss Edna’s.  But, just in case, her preview(s) are just beneath mine.  Click on them and it will take you to her blog for her two parts.

What follows is a little rant about the pc fiasco.  LOL  You don’t have to read on unless you just want to.

That little fiasco last week, with the lightening striking so close to my house, was just an inconvenient pile of crap!  LOL  It just took time.  Waiting for the Provider’s service call took a day, ordering the part, then, three or four days for shipping, and, finally, the actual repairs, another day.  Also, it takes time to set back up, getting everything up and running again.  It wasn’t a rebuild, so, the programs didn’t have to be re-installed.  However, the majority of them required a renewal of the ‘authorization’, so, that took time.  Photoshop, naturally, had to be re-authorized.   They are suspicious, little boogars!  I was only using a copy before.  Now, I own CS6 outright – thanks to my pc guy, DirtyBegger.  Still, even with everything back up and running, there are ‘things’ happening that are weird.  LOL  I’ve had some strange messages/alerts pop up.  (Things have been rather sluggish, too.  Shhhhh!  It might hear!)  I had some programs show up that I had forgotten completely.  In a way, it’s kind of like a surprise!  You never know what to expect!  LOL  It’s all good, though.  Crap happened, everything was fried, it got fixed or replaced and, wallah, I am back in ‘business’, a little worse for wear.  We always manage, eh?  Think about it.  We always have what we need, when we need it.  It may not be just what we wanted or even when we wanted it.  But, I can guarantee you, we have always gotten what we ‘need’.  That thought really comforts me.  To say I am ‘blessed’ after the past few months’ events, would seem foolish, if not for the fact that, hey, I survived!  I am alive, relatively healthy and in good spirits.  Who could ask for anything more?  LOL

Real quick, if any of you are members at PSD Tuts website, http://psd.tutsplus.com/, make sure you get over there and download as much of their Premium content as you can stuff on your hard drive.  They were hacked about a month ago, with members’ log-in/ password info being the target.  Members’ personal info was breached, so, it really angered and shook the community.  This site practically preaches internet safety.  A lot of long-time members left and/or, at least, gave them hell!  Though they took immediate steps to stop the breach and safeguard further invasion, the damage was done.  Anyone whose log-in info was in any way similar to that of their PayPal’s info, were especially urged to take preventative measures.  The admin involved claimed their responsibility and, as a consolation, ALL existing members, whether active or not, will be allowed free access until early September.  It is for approximately two months.  If you have ever registered at PSD Tuts, get on over there and start downloading!  You don’t have to do anything except log in.  Be warned, too, that, when you go to log in, you will automatically have to reset your password.  They ‘cancelled’ all previous log-in info for obvious reasons.  Your account is still there, it just needs to be updated.  When you try to log-in, you’ll see what to do.  It took all of 2 minutes – if that!

Folks, I am getting ga-ga from lack of sleep.  I so wanted to get this kit ready!  And, now, it is.  I am happy.  I sure hope you all are happy, too!

Until the next time….

So, put on your best smiles, ya’ll!

Hugs,

Su

New Freebie: “Summer Fun”

Ah, a glorious morning here in sunny Florida!  There is something about mornings.  The birds are singing a chorus to welcome in the new day.  Dew is slowly dissipating from the grass, as the sun slowly rises.  In a few hours, old ‘Sol’ will be glaring down upon us as it bakes the earth beneath our feet.  But, up til then, everything feels so fresh and new.  Yeah!  Right!  About the only thing new about the day is getting to sleep in.  LOL  On weekends, the children are early risers, so, there is no lazing around beneath the sheets.  But, come Monday, when everyone returns to school or work, it’s quiet and peaceful.  I love this time!  I stayed in bed a mite too long this morning.  ‘Cause, now it is after noon. Sorry about that.

Things are still in the works for my website.  I know.  I know.  Anyone else would have theirs up and running by now.  The dude who handles all my PC stuff is working on it.  Some years back he was certified in Microsoft.  Obviously, things have changed.  So, he is in school now.   He and a classmate are getting this web-business up and running.  They only really lack experience.  So, I am not in any hurry just so it gives my friend time to go through and figure things out, set them up, whatever.  I figure my site is as good a place as any for him to play around with.  I know he will do me right.  He is good about that.  So, all I can tell you is that later this week he is coming over to get me tuned in and all that jazz.  Perhaps, by weeks end, the new site will be up.

As it’s late, I will go ahead and give you the new freebie and save my gab for another day. This month’s theme is “Summer Fun”.  I think the soft, pastel colors will appeal to many.  Today, Miss Edna and I give you the QP’s.  Then, for the next two Mondays, we will give you the kit parts for you to create your own layouts.  You end up with a total of twelve(12) parts between Miss Edna’s parts and mine.  So, without further adieu, here are Parts 1 and 2, together.  Click on the preview to go to Minus to download.  Then, if you haven’t been to Miss Edna’s Place yet, click on her preview to go to her blog for her two parts.

Parts 1 and 2

And, that will do it!  I hope you enjoy!

Until next time,

Final Parts Freebie and Links

Greetings, All!  I hope my post today finds you in good health and good spirits.  Busy, busy, busy!  LOL  There is so much going on right now.  Changes!  I don’t handle changes very well.  I like to be in my own comfort zone and change intimidates me.  But, I manage, as does everyone.

The first big change is my new blog/site.  It’s coming along and  I could have probably posted this there.  I still am unsure of too many thing, though, to feel comfortable doing that yet.  My friend is helping me as well as a couple of dear friends online.  Every bit of help they have given has been so wonderful!  I’m one of those people who has to understand the concept of something before I get it ‘down’.  LOL  In my mind, it has to make sense.  Of course, this isn’t always possible.  There are lots of things we do that don’t make sense!  LOL  Anyway, I am working on the new site and will definitely have a notice prepared when I do get moved.

The next big change is my group, Digital Whisper.  Well, it isn’t my group, but, it is my ‘home’.  There have been some changes there, but, now, it has been decided that DW will merge with her ‘sister’ site, Creative Souls.  Creative Souls is a wonderful place!  The talent there is awesome!  DW was actually a group that was derived from CS.  Where CS is all about any kind of art, DW was more about Digital art.  By merging in together, we hope to corner the market.  LOL  Nah!  Just kidding.  But, we should have a little bit of something for all artists!

On the personal front, more changes.  I started back on treatments, ditched some excess ‘baggage’ and there have been some changes with the grandchildren.  It’s all good.  Just tedious!  When things get like this, I have to stop and tell myself, “One foot in front of the other…”  Life goes on.  It would be nice if I could just find a nice, quiet place to hide, but, it isn’t going to happen!  LOL

It has been such a long time since I posted any links for you all.  I have a list going so I thought I would share a couple here, then, I can do another post with the rest.  The first one is for one download.  The site, Vectorian, offers a mega set of vectors for a small fee.  There is also a ‘sampler’ pack and it is free.  For you Photoshop users, vectors can be used!  They will open in PS, then, as you will see when you open one, you’ll be given a chance to ‘rasterize’ it so PS can work with it.   Vectors really open up a ton of possibilities for design!  Check out the freebie here, then, if so decided, you can pick up the entire set.

Next is Brenda’s Scrap Designs.  Brenda is so talented!  Have a look at her blog and all the pretties!  What I enjoy most, though, is her ‘Styles’.  Though there isn’t a ‘search’ box, her blog only goes back to January of this year, so, it isn’t too difficult to go back through the posts to find them all.  On your way, you can see all the pretty kits and other items she makes.  I think you will be impressed!  I sure am!

One more, Background Labs.  Obviously, this site is devoted to backgrounds one can use for their sites, blogs and designs.  What I found unique about this site is their way of organizing the designs.  You can visit each page by colour or theme.  There are both the image and the ‘Pattern’ file.  The ‘.pat’ files can be used directly by loading them into the ‘Patterns’ File Manager in Photoshop.  The selection of patterns is phenomenal!  Check it out!

Finally, what you’ve patiently awaited.  I have the last two ‘parts’ of “Monkey See, Monkey Do” for you, plus, some extras that I made and didn’t put in with the other files.  In other words, I made too much – again!  LOL   If you missed previous links, they are all still available.

Click on the first preview, the ‘elements’, for Part 5, and, then, the second preview, the ‘papers’ for Part 6.  Then, if you haven’t visited Miss Edna’s Place, click on her preview to go to her blog for her two parts.
