"Just Moved" Release, Winner, Sale, and a FREEBIE!

Some of you may be aware that my husband and I just purchased our very first home. Yay! We're still getting completely settled, but are loving the new joy that comes with being homeowners. This was our 7th move as a family (and our last for awhile!) and we're so excited for this new phase in our lives. Which leads me to my new kit. Obviously, with 7 moves I had some pictures to scrap...funny packing photos, pictures of where we have lived, stories of how it all happened...and suddenly this kit was born. Working on this kit was so much fun! I literally had inspiration all around me. I wasn't joking when I said the subject was keeping me up at night... if not creatively, then physically. :) So let me introduce you to....

We've Moved!

I'm glad to announce we have survived the BIG move! hehe In all reality, it wasn't really that big of a move. My husband and I counted last night... we've moved 7 times in the 5 years we've been married. Crazy. We have this moving thing down pretty well, so, by all means, a move across town was no nightmare. The difference this time is that we OWN our new place. The carpet, the kitchen, the stairs are all OURS! And THAT is pretty big news to us! The second difference is that we now have a 2 year-old and moving with a toddler is a whole new adventure. She loves "new house" and cheers each time we pull into the subdivision. She also loves those stairs and has already taken her first tumble down them. (Talk about a heart-attack for mom!)

There's only been one notable casualty, aside from Miss Ash's tumble, so far in our move. My finger.
That's right my poor index finger. haha I was unpacking my little heart out yesterday and put a big nasty cut right across the end of it. Ouch! Now, normally this would NOT be a big deal at all (in fact, my husband would probably roll his eyes if he knew I was blogging about it!). I like to think I'm tough (sort of) and I get cuts and scrapes and bruises all the time. But I'm right-handed and everything is harder when your right index finger isn't working. It is also, as I realized today, interfering with some very important business. You see, I work and design on a laptop. We don't have an extra mouse and so I use the nice little touch pad on the key area to do ALL my designing. It takes some focus, but I've gotten pretty good and moving my finger just so to create, design, and extract. However, the touch pad DOES NOT work if you have a band-aid on! Bah! I have resorted to using other fingers to click and drag so that I can be somewhat functional, but real designing (unfortunately) will just have to wait until the precision of my right index finger can return. :) Bummer! I've been DYING to get back to work on my next kit! Packing, moving, and now unpacking has really put a limit on my computer time. I'm hopeful to release it in the next 2-3 weeks and I'm so excited to see it completed. It has literally kept me up at night this last week! hehe

Until then I have this waiting for me.....

Man, and you'd think after moving 7 times we'd have learned to de-clutter a little more! Wish me luck!

Trouble opening files?

Every now and then a poor confused scrapper sends me an email about not being able to open and use my files on their PC. The majority of the time these files are 100% usable. They just must be accessed a little differently. The culprit in this problem is a lack of compatibility between Macs and PCs. All my designs are created and zipped on a Mac which, while it has its perks in designing, can cause some file confusion on the PC end.

One of our fellow scrappers, Jessica, made this short video to teach you how to extract these Mac-oriented files on your PC. Isn't she AWESOME?!

Thanks Jessica! You ROCK!

If you every have any other problems, how to's, or questions... Let me know and I'll do my best to answer them!
