They remodelled my kitchen cupboards on Tues. and I had a couple of days notice to pack up all of my things. I really did not realize how much stuff I had lurking in those cupboards and shelves. Isn't it weird what you can accumulate in nine years.
OK, so I made it through the crunch and I am getting my products ready for the store... shhh I still am keeping it to myself until I get my products in there.
I opened up my e-mail today and another site has contacted me about an opportunity there also.
Sometimes it just comes in droves!!! ;) I am so excited!
Well, among all of this craziness I still have not put up the Christmas tree I was waiting on the remodel and then it was SUPER cold out...-17 below Brrrr. I did not want to go out to the storage building and poke around in the dark for my stuff and then haul things inside... well this weekend's forecast is ...........LOTS MORE SNOW! I am down to the minute and need to get this done.
Oh yeah, and in some 'me time' I figured out how to do felt elements and glitter so here is a sample and I am doing it as a CU commercial use item. All of the layers are separated into individual .png layers and I also included the colored element as well. How Great is That?
I did the packaging for this, What do you think, I think it turned out all right.

I have been accepted into a scrap store and my store will be open soon woot! I am so excited!!! So my scrap ID will drop down to Crystal's Creations. I will still use Crystal Creations by Design for the blog for the freebies. I will have more about this soon!
My son is a teenager and I had no clue what to get him but it worked out. I can't wait to see his face when he opens up his gift. ;)
I am a good elf. I have all of the presents and they are all hidden in the storage closet and under a blanket and wrapped hee hee. I only have to get the stocking stuffers and a few other gifts for friends. I am dating someone and have no idea what to get him. I don't date much. This is aaaaaaa weird.
I Have a Christmas freebie for you. I have been playing around with acrylics and I had scanned in a knotted ribbon so here are the spoils. Another one for you next week!

Baby it's COLD out here. It was -8 below Fahrenheit (windchill) this morning. That is a cold spell!!!! We usually do not have that cold of temps for a month yet. All that snow the last few days have kept things insulated and the north winds blew and well...BBBRBBRBRBRRRRRRRrrrrrrrr! hahaha. Good to stay in on the computer. LOL!
We are supposed to get 3 more inches of the white stuff...$!&#! 9snow) hey, that is a foul word, no swearing! hahahaa. And it is a four letter word too. hee hee hee. ;)
I priced the ingredients for the pies and MAN! blueberries are high! Oh My Goodness! So now my BFF's neighbors are going to share a pie instead of getting one each. I did not realize that fruit pies were so spendy. :O
I am glad about the positive responses to my Transcendat kit. I enjoyed making it and learning about the quality issues so there were just too many to re-do the whole kit so I hope that some of you are OK with using it as is. sorry. My kits from now on will be up to quality. Really no one had ever told me any of that stuff before. I am hoping to have an add on to the Transcendant kit for all of the stuffies that it is missing. I made a few pages with it and the one QP but it was lacking something??.....hmhmmmmm.
Sneak Peek at my Holly Jolly freebies... just check out my new blog trimmings :D. They turned out all right I am so excited about the blog train on Monday the 15th. There are SOsososososos many stops. Bust the external hard drives LOL.
I am not CTing for anyone right now as all of my designers have retired. :( So I guess I will focus on my own scrapping and buy a few things here and there then guess what? yeah, I get to show them off here! mrhrhahahaaaa.
I just have not been into the challenges like I was before and now that Digital Candy is closing I am so, so bummed. Now I have to haunt and lurk somewhere else ;) hee hee. What happened to the sweet shoppe cookie template...I loved those, I was going shopping over there to do a few, now that I understand the mechanics of using a template mahahaaaa ;) ...and now the new ones are gone! bummer!
OK, now for the goody...

Speaking of pie... I sent some along to my very good friend and she in turn had someone over for tea. I did after all give her a quarter of each pie, apple and pumpkin. Well, it turns out that I received quite a compliment. She thought that the pumpkin pie was the best that she had ever had!!!! ROOT ROOT, coolness. :D well I have to admit I thought that they were really good this time too. ;) She has ordered a pie from me!
I love to bake and my Mom passed on her talent and interest in this area to me. I enjoy it for the theraputic qualities( all that stirring- you can really take out your anger sometimes KWIM?) and the thrill of getting the chemistry just right and also to make it prettified LOL! That is my son's word LMBO. The problem with baking is the fact that I have to find a home for it. Well, usually not too difficult hahahaaa. So along the lines of food...
The Sweet Tart Team came up with a very unique kit for you this month. Grandma's kitchen. Available to registered members at Digital Candy.
As the store will be closing on Dec 31st make sure to download the STT kits ASAP!

Back in September I was told that they wanted to remodel my apartment since I have been here 9+ years. The other apartments around me are getting renewed and it is my turn to get 'caught up'.
When they came around for federal housing inspections a couple of weeks ago they had to condem my neighbors furnace and due to the furnace not working properly a pipe had cracked due to the cold. Mold and mildew had set into the walls and cabinets where our kitchens connect.
YUK! This is a photo of the cabinets that they removed and they had to remove the walls as well. Boy, did my place STINK! of mold when they cut out those walls next door. I was overdue for new cabinets. These were even the newer ones! I have old dark walnut caninets from the late 70's still and are warped from dripping sink water damage as well.
I did manage to move our bedroom belongings around to switch rooms so I went through our belongings and storage upstairs at least but there is so much work to do as they can carpet one room at a time I will have to empty one room up there at a time so remove, and re-move. LOL. I'll take pics and share the process.
Anyway, that is why I have been quiet.
How do you paint in winter and keep a low heat bill??? YIKES! smelly... P.U.!!!
They told me that they have ordered my cabinets and will give me a two day notice of when they will come in. so I am waiting to get word so I can pack up the rest of my kitchen and dining belongings. Sigh. So much work. I know it will be worth it but MAN! I am overwhelmed.

A layout that I made with Cold as Ice Freebie.
I will be scrapping with this my self as it is raining ice this week. Good thing to be in the house all warm and cozy on days like these. It is coming down in pellets, just like finely crushed ice. I was supposed to drive 45+ miles to Firbault, MN today to do a temp assignment but I have been sick... Would you believe that a person can be allegic to anti-persperant/deoderant??? I have hives, LOL And to top it off my body decided to do a systemic reaction it did not stay put.I itch all over. My body decided to declar war on my skin and it is not a happy dance at the moment :PPPPPPppppPPppp Oh my!!!
At the first of the month, well 11-1 exactly my son went to play american football with his buddies down the block and hurt himself pretty badly on one of the first tackles. He played injured for several hours and called me to come pick him up in the dark. He then complained that he could not straighten out his pinky finger and that it felt numb. Oh, my!!! I took one look at that swollen hand and went straight to the emergency room at the hospital. They sent him immediately to the X-ray department, do not pass GO! LOL! They sent for a surgical consult too. He had a bad fracture. It was really displaced and wide open oon a twist as he did a spiral fracture. They stretched out his hand and fingers in this wire device called finger traps, Ouch! Last Wednesday we went to the surgical wing in the hospital and they took some new X-rays and what a relief! He did not need surgery the doctor in the ER set the bone very well. It is all aligned very neatly and healing fast, they put a black fiberglass cast on it and he returns in more weeks to get it checked and they are predicting to downgrade to a brace at that time. My to be young and have fun. And to heal so quickly ;)

In the meantime I had all of that moving to do. Well the rental manager now has too many move outs to deal with at the mnoment so most of my belongings are out in the garage and now I can't use the garage building for my car now. I have to wait until December or January for the remodel. For a while there I thought that it would not happen at all so I guess late is better than never. In a way I hope that they can't get to it or I will feel obligated to not decorate or have the tree up for Christmas. But with all that, I had the blahs and I am still looking for a job so I hope that my quiet spell is over :)
Yesterday I actually had a stroke of luck. I found an inexpensive honest car mechanic, Sounds kind of funny together like that hee hee but I was on top of the world with glee I tell you!!! He even gives free estimates and said that he can make service calls in the area if a customer beomes stranded and it is a simple repair. oh Really? Wow! Also he has a friend that does tow calls for $45 and that is half price for around here. What? Really?!!! Woot! So I asked for a business card to spread the word and he did not have any so I offered to make one. I made a card up for him as a thank you. It is something he can print on his office computer until he can order some business cards.
Well my muffler is now quiet again and the windows go up and down. I also have heat for the winter. My blower fan and regulator had blown out in it. Last month I had to replace the serpentine belt and it was on too tight beacause the part was too new and needed to stretch a little so it was squeelling. He fixed it all and I had enough money to get my new printer/scanner. Phew! Now the dear son needs new contacts and a warm winter coat/parka. Columbia's are really the warmest and most popular around here and as he has a 20 minute wait for the bus on his way home from school he really needs a quality one. Twenty below zero in Februray in the dark is always just plain COLD BRRRrrrrrrr! I hope that we have a long Fall season :)
Did I mention that I have a Freebie for you? I did the DSO color challenge. I also have a trial copy of Cs3 extended and am falling in love with it. Much easier to manuever that PSP. Lots of Bells and Whistles too. So thank you adobe photoshop and atomic cupcake for the actions :)
