New Freebie & good news

Waving a big 'HELLO' to Ellie and Scrapcat! Love you gals:)

"Where in the hell have I been?", you ask. Busy with life and the goodness of summer! With a lot of pain management thrown
Got 1/2 of a large flower bed under control and planted a new lilac bush. We have this huge rose bush out front...I don't remember the name of it but it's like a wild one that keeps spreading every year and this was the year to get inside it and do some serious weeding and pruning. I would have been just horrified if anyone had seen me...what a comedy it was! I started out doing it myself but damn, it hurt. So asked hubby for some welding gloves and he did one better...gave me a welding jacket and leather gloves. I did the outer perimeter and then had to reach far in to get at the middle but needed someone to hold some of the branches up. Hubby to the rescue again! At one point I was so far in all he could see was my fat ass...roflmao. I needed to get out of there and get some face protection on...I left some serious chunks of hair behind too:) Where's my goggles...haven't used them in years and don't have a clue. I grab one of the grandkids helmets and headed back for more torture. Thank goodness it had a face shield on but OMG was I hot...and not in a good sexy way! I crawl back in and get the dirty deed done and promised myself that the next time this needs doing, I'll be paying any amount to anyone brave enough to do
But she's the most beautiful rose bush...luscious, delicate, light pink blossoms that open flat and facing up with a scent from heaven and blooms continuously from June thru September. Hard work has it's rewards and I think she's very happy with her new 'do'!

And then the pain sets in! I've been having a problem with my neck and shoulders since March but didn't go to the doc 'cause I just figured that's where the damned fibro had settled for a while. It would move elsewhere eventually. Well, it didn't so I end up going to the doc and my shoulders are so tight she said it's no wonder I couldn't turn my head much. And when I did, I could hear all this snapping and cracking...yuck! And sleeping at night was all weird...did you ever have a night where you thought you were asleep but you were aware of everything around you and you wake up exhausted? Yeah...that was me for a couple of weeks:( So she puts me on a valium regimen where I take one mid-day and one at bedtime so my muscles can relax. Holy Naptime Batman! The house could have exploded around me and not only would I have not awoken, I wouldn't have cared...rofl. That stuff is wonderful...I'm sleeping like a dead woman and I can now turn my head anywhere I want with no noise...what a treat. The only downside is the time I've lost (4/5 hours midday)...I'm so behind I'm not 56 anymore, I'm 54 1/!

As an example, on Fathers Day I was tagged by Fishinmom and must apologize to Kimberly for this delay but I did so enjoy reading her tagged's nice to know more about her. And seeing as this is a monster post already, here I go: 7 things about me that nobody gives a rat's ass about!
1. I've been married 3 times and the 3rd one was the charm. We've been together for 27 years.
2. I have 1 child, a daughter that is just beautiful, charming, and one smart cookie!
3. I danced topless on a bartop in a contest once...back when my boobs were lookin' right at ya'!
4. I have a very, very low tolerance for racial and religious bullshit. We are all of the human race and our beliefs are what they are.
5. I adore my siblings beyond measure...they are truly wonderful, caring people.
6. I am a freak for M&M memorabilia. I even have a box of plain and peanut from the White House during the Clinton Administration:)
7. I hate having my picture taken...hate it, hate it, hate it!
I'm supposed to tag 4 more blogs but that will have to wait for now.

Good news is I'm now on the Element Team at the most wonderful place...Digital Candy. A bunch of supernice gals I get to play with and the Element Team designs kits for the many fun challenges they offer. Owner Heidi is the sweetest gal, very easy going and I've been having a blast. They have great challenges too...a Celebrity Challenge, a Numbers challenge that is so different and cool, you gotta' check it out, a Sketch/Template challenge, just to name a few. You'll feel so at home there and have a bunch of fun! And don't forget to check out the store...what a list of designers they have and some gorgeous stuff!

More good news...molliemojo found her way home! I was so glad to see her but she's a bit a hangover kind of way...roflol. And to celebrate her homecoming I can finally release a new kit called Fun Flowers. Yeah, I had to name it before she came home:(
Here's the previews:

Grab the papers/borders...I had to divide them into 2 zips so make sure you get them both here: Papers 1 and Papers 2. You'll have to wait for the elements until tomorrow.

Gosh, it was great blogging again...didn't realize how much I missed it. Hope you've all been well and having a fantastic summer so far:) See ya' tomorrow!

Oops...almost forgot to tell ya'...I have disabled comments at 4 shared for all downloads except the first one. For example, this post has 2 downloads of the same thing...papers. Comments are only allowed for the first set of papers. IMHO, it's annoying and ridiculous to have to say thanks for each separate download of the same set of items. This will make the shitbums that never say thanks very happy. I have a thought of password protecting all my downloads with the password being the same for everything...Thank You...roflmaopimp. Wouldn't that just piss them off! I know...I have an evil streak, don't

I hope it's okay to comment here instead of at 4Shared. I know some folks don't read the 4Shared comments! Thanks for the pretty papers, I love them and am looking forward to the rest of the kit!

Jen said...

I always leave comments on the blog not in 4 shared. I hope that is okay.

Thanks for the great papers!

Now that you have the trimming up the MONSTER rose bush, want to come tackle mine? I got some of the antique roses, forgot they had big ole honking thorns and now everytime I walk by the one I planted on the arbor over the gate to the back yard it reaches out and snags me.

Missed reading your blog, it always makes me laugh, plus you make some might fine goodies too.

Mollie HI!!!!!
So good to hear from you!!!!!!!
Glad to hear your feeling better!!!
Can image the rose bush thing same as me trying to get my flower beds done with my bad knee & back with my allergies.
Even got rid of 1 mini bed & redone my pond bed to make it smaller with a stone path at the pond to make less work for me!!
Glad you've got your mojo back too!!!!!!!
TY so very much for the awesome BG's!!

Tracy said...

Thanks for the goodies! And thanks for visiting my blog!!!

Heather said...

Thank you! I mean, I don't ever (intentionally, at least) download freebies w/o leaving at the very least a thank you, but I recently downloaded something that was in 4 or 5 sections and by the end, it was feeling a little ridiculous. I was ready to leave one letter per section. ;-)

Ellie said...

I'm so glad you came back with a mojo on and in a flowery bang! Welcome back Sweetie, and congrats on the . . . well . . . weeding! Wish I coulda seen you. Did hubby take some pix you can share? LOL Thanks for the beautiful new kit pieces!
Oh yeah, love the idea of using thanks as a password. You kill me!

scrapsara said...

Ouch! I have fibro too and I was hurting right along with ya while I was reading about your neck and shoulders!! I take Zanaflex nightly for my muscles (and helps with sleep too). Missed ya! Thanks for the beautiful flower kit!!

Deborah Misfit said...

I'm in giggling mode today - just picturing myself doing that rose bush was a hoot! Thanks for the laughter this morning. Just perfect. And thanks for the papers too! GREAT JOB!

plbeary said...

Welcome back and what a job to tackle that bush - you are brave! We have holly trees and I pay someone to go in an prune them. Thanks for the new kit

Glenda said...

Thank you for the papers. Can't wait for the rest. Neat stuff!!
You know what I thought was the best pass word I ever came across was - Thank You. That's right.
Thank You. Not only that, we had to figure out what it was. Some one had that on line not too long ago. I thought it was really cool,
especially since we had to figure it out. Thanks again for the papers.

I usually comment at both places just to make up for the :shitbums; who dont comment lol..i cant help it I have to..and I think thats a really good idea not a mean streak..make them work for it..sheesh your letting them off easy..3 designers i know of make 50 people send in LO or QP's before the next part of a kit will come out and they show the whole kit to start its worked like a charm...and others have them all password protected so you have to leave a comment to get it...depends on the level of work you want to go to but i think its pretty sad to go do a d.o and see 1200 d.l and 100 comments. I appreciate all the hard work you put into the kits you make and that you share them with us. I also comment even when its just something you have posted to read or a layout so long as Im around that day..i even try to play catch up if i can..thanks again
