Spring is springing, and just in time. Yay! The boredom is beyond boring now with all the Covid stay away and stay home. At least soon we can be outside getting ready for flowers, distancing cook outs, and seeing some long lost friends that had to also hibernate. Thankfully, the vaccination will make that easier than before.
I’ve procrastinated and never planted perennials, and always do annuals. Now that I’ve aged, I wish I’d done the perennials. I definitely have never been one for a great flower garden. Lazy, I guess, but do enjoy a few flowers in the planters my husband made me. Which do you plant?
Mowing will start soon, and will be great reason to be outside getting some of that Vitamin D that has been missing. I’m more than ready and looking forward.
What’s going on in your neck of the world? Is Spring springing where you are?
Who doesn’t enjoy a Love Letter once in a while from their soulmate. Back in my day, we wrote notes and letters. I married my HS sweetie, and still have notes we wrote back and forth in HS. I also have letters we wrote when we would be apart after we married. Was so fun to find and read years later what as young people we wrote to each other. Silly sometimes, and serious other times. They are priceless to me.
In today’s world of technology, we can still write love letters via email or text messges. Just print them off, and one day in the future, you’ll have them to look back at your young self.
It’s dark now, the kids have gone. As I look around the room, remnants remain of evidence they came ~ toys lay on the floor that won’t be played with anymore. Kids grow, they move away, but now and then they come again.
The rooms lighten up again with laughter and busyness. Toys are brought out for grandbabies to play, the giggles are delightful.
Time is up, bags are packed and off they go again ~ taking with them our hugs and well wishes.
If only kids could stay, but they’ve grown and must go on their way to the adult life they’ve made. We smile with pride and say good-bye as our Love goes out the door.
Latest layout. Having some fun with colors, and photos today. I use Adobe Photoshop Elements figuring out how to do the layouts, and make the elements since I don’t draw. Wish I did. I so envy those that can pick up a pencil and sketch or paint on a canvas.
Give me feedback to let me know if you’d like to have the kits for the layouts. Just contact me, and I can give the link.
Anyway, kits that I make will be given away with permission to personal use, but also to display on your website if you choose. The only stipulation is that my layout cannot be displayed as is, only the parts in the kit. They can be recolored, reimagined, or as is in your layout. They cannot be sold unless request commercial license permission. Any questions, let me know.
First off, I want to give a big thank you to Patricia for allowing us to visit and tell a little bit about who we are and what we do over at Pixel Scrapper!
We are a digital scrapbooking site, and more than that, a community. A community of artists ranging from complete beginners to the advanced and even professional.
If you’re not quite sure yet what digital scrapbooking even is, just take a look at the article linked above — it’s thorough and in-depth, but also easy to read. And it will help you understand what digital scrapbooking is and how to get started on your journey.
But for those of you who already know about this craft: at Pixel Scrapper we seek to be something different than you usually find in the digital scrapbooking world (or even digital arts world at large). We want to be a place where scrappers and artists can connect to one another, enjoy what they do, share their creations with others, and be inspired by each other.
To this end, we built Pixel Scrapper the way it was built — with private contact forms, forums where you can ask questions and interact, and even a live chat room. But not just that, we have an open gallery, meaning you can share layouts that you’ve created and find inspiration, and they don’t even have to be layouts that are created exclusively with Pixel Scrapper graphics.
And if you’re more than just a scrapper, and you yourself are a designer (or interested in designing), we have a Commons. A place where designers of all experience levels can upload their designs for others to enjoy, while receiving encouraging feedback on their work so they can continue to keep getting better. You also give feedback to other designers who are learning and growing themselves — a thriving system of where we’re all enriched by both giving and receiving.
But what I’ve shared so far is only half of what we do. We wouldn’t be a site for digital scrapbookers and artists without our actual graphics. But even here we wanted to function as much as we could from a value of generosity.
So once you register for a free account, you can download five graphics every single day, completely for free. That’s with a personal or commercial use license, and these graphics are chosen from our collection of thousands upon thousands, that are of the highest quality and come in many different file formats.
But is 5 graphics not enough to meet your scrapping needs? Then one of our great subscriptions is probably for you. Get unlimited graphic downloads for an affordable flat rate (available in monthly or yearly payments). Particularly, if you’re a professional, our commercial use subscription could be just for you, as we made it as open and freeing as we could so that you wouldn’t have to worry about copyright every time you went to work with one of our graphics.
These subscriptions do for digital scrapbookers what Netflix did for movie-lovers. They streamline and make affordable your hobby (or profession) like never before.
So come check us out. You won’t regret it. Enrich your creative life by joining our community. It’s super low-stakes — just register for a free account, and browse around the site till you find something you like.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
Thanks for visiting, and giving this great source of digital scrapbooking a visit. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
Crocheted wash cloths. Made with 100% cotton, and so soft. Had never made them before, but fun to make, and make a great gift.
The soap is melt and pour, and fun to add your own fragrances. To make the soap packet, I printed the Soap monogram, punched the top with a cute punch. Then I sewed it around on three edges, inserted the soap and punched through both layers, and intered a pin with taps to close. Eventually, I would like to make the soap as lye soap, but truthfully, does scare me a bit to work with it.
Cute pins that you can make with a simple square of fabric. Look cute to accessorize a purse or headband, etc.
Would love to see what you’ve been crafting. Leave a link in the comments or contact me so I can come visit. Enjoy visiting others who love crafting.
What better way to showcase your furbaby than with a scrap book page, even if it is only digital. You can use the items from my kit, transform them however you like, and frame it or just print out. Free kit file can be downloaded HERE.
Mine contains photos of my furbaby, Razzy.
Razzy entertains me and keeps me from going stir crazy during these Covid virus months.Sometimes though, the ins and outs of the day, I admit, drive me a bit crazy. Even in all this snow, he wants to stay out, and doesn’t realize how small he is and how soon those paws would freeze.
Have a great Thursday, and week end coming up. Thanks for visiting Peabea’s Potpourri. If you use the digital kits that I share, would love to see them. Just drop me a link to my email or comment below so I can come visit if you share them online.
I’m over at Peabea Scribbles hosting the Pictorial Tuesday Link Up. Link is HERE. Come link up your Photography, Photo Art, Digiscrapping. See what others are sharing, make new friend. See you over there.
