Ok, I spent all day packing my son and husband’s stuff to go on their Klondike camping trip (where they camp in the snow at sub freezing temperatures.)  Sounds fun, doesn’t it?  Well, not in my opinion.  I’m happy at home with my electric blanket! So, I was going to do something cutesy to announce my creative team members but I just had a wild and crazy day, so I’m very excited to announce the following (in no particular order):

Stephanie Brown
Alisha Straley
Gail Sullivan
Bethany Blackham
Clara Riggle
Christelle van Dyk
Catalina DeMelo
Amanda Davis

It was very hard because many of the applicants were friends from GDS or loyal customers.  I very much appreciate everyone who applied.  Congratulations to everyone!  I’ll be contacting you with a giant informational email.

I’ve got these two classes on sale for only $20 anyone who is interested:



You can find out about them here.

Here is a freebie:


Download here.

On this freebie, I included plain stitching to cut the file size down (it was 45 MB.)  So, I’ve included a style for you to apply to the stitching to make it more realistic if you are using Photoshop or Photoshop Elements.  Thanks for any comments!

Great template and style Andrea! Congrats to the new team members too- Andrea's THE BEST! :)

Steph said...

I'm the kind of girl that prefers a warm house and a good show or book to the freezing great outdoors of winter myself but that's just me. I hope your husband and son have fun. Thanks for the great template - as always it's beautiful. Thanks again.

My Little Ironies

  • I just had to tell my daughter that there was little probability that she could do eighty chores in two hours and 10 minutes to earn a giant lot of pet shops on Ebay that she wants to earn before the auction closes. That's at two chores per dollar. :)
  • We are helping my father sell an old vehicle and what do we find in the glove unused 12 guage shotgun shell...that's my Dad!!
  • How does a three year old end up at church with no underwear on, especially when you dressed him and you know he had underwear on at one point during the morning?
  • The root of all toilet clogging evil is apparently a ball point pen and it's nearly impossible to dislodge one of those from the inside of a toilet.
  • You know you have to do some serious laundry when you actually consider wearing your 11 year old daughter's Hannah Montana shirt.
  • My 6 year old daughter got a comb stuck in her hair and we had to cut the comb into little bits to get it out of her hair.
  • My kids keep breaking the toilet seats! I guess I need a bulk package of those too!
  • Chocolate chips are not a food group.
  • My toilet seat says "Hailee" on it!
  • If there's work to be done, all of the kids need to use the bathroom or get a drink.
  • All two-year-olds think the baby swing is for them!
  • When you have 6 kids, carpet is your enemy!
  • You know you have a large family when your grocery receipt is 4 feet long.
  • The toilet is clogged and my husband found a plastic easter egg in the pipe.
  • My daughter just asked me if she can put chocolate sprinkles on here melted cheese sandwich (really???)
  • I burned up another hard drive on my PC! Can I buy a bulk package of those too?
  • Well actually, my sand pile is full of socks and silverware!
  • My sand pile is full of socks!
  • The key to my treadmill is missing again...can I just purchase a bulk package of them???
  • I fixed my daughter's glasses with JB Weld!
  • I have a pile of sand on my leather couch.
  • My daughter lost her glasses in the snow on the way home from school in January. Someone found them in March and turned them into the school office! Amazingly enough, the school remembered we lost them in January. Wow!
  • Just when I think he knows better, my 10 year old son plugs the bathroom sink and the emergency drain in the sink basin to soak his grow creature, turns on the water, and forgets about it until we notice water flooding out from under the bathroom door! And yes, he locked the door so no one would bother the grow creature!!
  • It's time for another worn out pair of the hubby's pants to disappear! Aren't kids suppose to be the only ones who are attached to clothing?
  • My 4 year old says she needs "peace and quite"!!!!!
  • My Husband says there's a perfectly good reason for the leatherman being in my dish drainer.
  • I have a leatherman (fancy pocket knife) in my dish drainer. I don't know why.
  • My kids are storing a tumble weed in my garage for the winter!
  • My 10 year old son informed me that people have only discovered about half of the world's caves (thank you BBC and planet earth!)
  • My baby's car seat is full of finely crushed graham crackers (?? Little babies don't eat graham crackers)!
  • My husband's shoes are filled with Mr. Potato Head parts!
  • My two year old thinks the new baby swing is for him! He can even climb in by himself and work all the controls. Boy, does he have a rude awakening coming!!
  • I have a giant mud hole in my back yard.
  • My vacuum is fully of plastic easter grass.
  • My kids are too full to finish their dinner, but they have plenty of room left for cake!
  • I have a giant laundry basket full of socks, and we can't find a single match!
  • Miscellaneous items found while cleaning out my kids' toy box include a flashlight, rocks (no suprise), a sea shell (we don't live by the sea), a drill bit, a stapler, and some tree bark!
  • My daughter's medical bills added up to about $18,000, but we got a free sippy cup and a ball signed by the Utah JAZZ Dancers!
  • I put safety locks on the tops of my outside doors to keep my three year old from escaping and she figured out how to open them with a broom in approximately five minutes.
  • I bought the EXPENSIVE vacuum this time only to find that my 3-year-old took it apart with a screwdriver!
  • I haven't showered for 3 days, but my house is clean!
  • I have 38 winter gloves of various sizes in my coat closet and none of them match.
  • We're out of peanut butter because my husband used the rest to catch a mouse in our garage!
  • Yes, my son won 1st place in the science fair at school, but he didn't turn in half of his assignments this term?
  • No matter how many toys my toddler got for Christmas, I still find him in the middle of my kitchen floor sitting in my crock pot!
