AH!!!! SPRING

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?

Love Letters

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.

Sweet Goodbyes

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.

Digiscrap ~ Serene

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.

Thanks for visiting

Few More Digi Layouts w/Free Layout

I’m offering the purple beauty as a freebie. Download is below.

I’m no artist, but I’m trying to learn how to make original layouts. I have worked with one group that taught different ways to paint to use in hybrid scrapbooking and then transport to digital. That way, if I make them original, I have a right to give my layouts away. So many that I have downloaded from sites are so beautiful, but with a personal license they only allow parts of their work for personal use only, and not for display on websites, etc. Have to read their terms of use very carefully so not stepping on copyright laws. Can get sticky.

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.

Thank you for visiting. Give me a thumbs up or comment to let me know you visited. As always, love reading viewer comments.

As we say good-bye to February, have a great last day and an awesome March. Here’s hoping it comes in like a lamb and stays that way. I’m so ready for Spring, and no more snow.

Wee Bit of Crafts to Keep Busy

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.

Furry Friends

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.

Can’t wait for this kind of weather, and he can play all he wants.

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.
