It's me again, LOL! Well I have put together another freebie for you all. This one goes right along with my entry in the SAS-y Lady Designer Contest 2009 at Stone Accents Studio. I would so very much appreciate it if you could give me a bit of support in the contest. You have to register in the forum to vote, but it is free and it would mean so very much to me to have you behind me in my designing efforts. A little bit of encouragement can go a very long way with us artistic folks, you know, lol.
The above is the preview of the add-on kit I made for you all, I do hope you enjoy it. Is no longer available, sorry.

I'M GIVING AWAY THE STORE FOR FREE It's been a while since I've blogged here - bad blogger, bad blogger!! LOL! But, I have something very special for you all. I've received permission from Royanna Fritschmann to GIVE AWAY HER STORE! How's that?! Yes, I'm giving away Royanna's store at Divine Digital to ONE very, very lucky person. As you may or may not know, Royanna's family is in dire crisis, and if you want a real bargain on, not only Personal Use items, but many Commercial Use items as well, now would be the time to purchase her entire store for just $25, and get the very generous Cyndi Wetmiller's Wetfish Designs complete store as well. And, of course, you would be helping out Royanna and her family. We've all had to tighten our belts right now, but this is a personal crisis that I hope all of you never have to go through. Please note, I don't personally know Royanna and her family, but when someone's down, it doesn't hurt to extend a hand to try to lift them up, if you are able to. Remember, what goes around, comes around. I would hope someone would extend a hand to you as well if you were the one in need. So, here's Royanna's ad from Divine Digital so you know what's being given away.

Tell your friends, relatives, bloggers, acquaintances, etc. about this unique giveaway. It's the one chance you will have at getting a designer's complete store, no, did I say "a" designer, I meant to say TWO DESIGNERS' COMPLETE STORES FOR FREE! I will randomly choose one winner and post the name here on my blog Sunday evening, July 12, 2009, at 9 p.m. eastern time. The cutoff time for entering your email address in the comments section of this post is 8:30 p.m. eastern time, so I can prepare for the drawing. If you use a different screen name other than what is in your email address, please supply that as well when you leave your email address in the comments section of this post. I will contact the winner by email to give the winner further information at that time. Good luck to everyone, and if you aren't the winner of this fantastic deal, and if you can afford to purchase Royanna's store from Divine Digital on your own for $25 and get Cyndi Wetmiller's Wetfish Designs store for free in the process, I suggest you go ahead and make this purchase now. You will never have a better offer than this, and you will be offering a hand to someone who needs your help right now. As I said, what goes around comes around, and we all need a lift once in a while. Thanks for visiting my blog either way, and have a great weekend!

This adorable little fellow found me during the fireworks display at a local fair! I figure he is about 8 or 10 weeks old, not sure about that though. He is a totally little feral boy that came hiding around my hubby’s concession stand during the release of the fireworks and was just so scared! That is my arm he is sleeping on in the picture. He has a kooky little habit of putting his nose against mine and then proceeding with trying to nibble my nose! He gives great kitty hugs/head butts too. He is a clinging vine as well when he knowsI'm up he wants out of the crate and to be my second skin. ( I tried letting in bed with me the first night, but he had a accident in bed, so now it's the crate at night, at least until he and the litter box become better acquainted.) He is also terrified of the dogs here, another reason for the crate, so he can become acclimated to the dogs and barking and such. Also so they get used to him and give up trying to chase him around the house when he gets on the floor. I'm using it to protect him form them mainly, I have a winter blanket over the top of it to make a cave for him to hide in.
Now, the problem, I need some suggestions as to what to name him, please? Right at the moment I'm calling him Charlie, but I'm not happy with that so I'm asking for suggestions.
I've come up with:

I thought I had really messed up my computer badly today! I had downloaded and installed a program to update my device drivers and used it once successfully. Well today I decided to get another driver and update it, BAD MOVE! The driver I downloaded and installed messed up my keyboard and mouse in a way that they wouldn’t work! I fought with this silly machine for hours and finally managed to get it to do a restore point for me and THAT finally worked. Be VERY careful what you download! Even if it appears to be something to improve your machine, you just don’t know what it might do!
Oh and while I”m on the subject, NEVER try to defrag your registry?!?! It just doesn’t like it and it will really mess with your computer! I did it and had to reformat, and reinstall everything afterwards! If you don’t know exactly what you are doing the best thing is allow your computer do download updates for you. That way you know the update is compatible with your operating system and machine, or go directly to the manufacturer’s site and download the updates form them!

This is a module that is in Vista that allows me to add new content from my desktop directly into my blog. I am just giving it a trial run to see how it works. This just might be what I need to stay a bit more current on my blog. It works very well actually and I think it just might keep me busy adding new content.

My son in law buried her near the house so I can visit her grave. I know she is no longer in pain now, but I do miss her. I was more relieved that she is no longer suffering. I am crying as I write this, but this is really the first time I've had to stop and think about her today. After I took her to the vet, she seemed better, but the next day she couldn't even stand up properly and scooted on the floor mostly. I knew then that she was going to leave me.
I was supposed to take her back to the vet the next day, but I knew it was of no use when I saw how she had given up, she just didn't have the will to live any longer. The hardest part was having to let her stay confined for her own protection. The dogs would have sensed her weakness and possibly attacked her. Yesterday I let her out for awhile and she managed to crawl into her litter box, but then couldn't get back out. I had to take the top off and lift her back out, she had even started having seizures this last week. I figured the best thing for her was to just let her alone so she could go to the bridge.
The vet said she had horrible plaque on her teeth and that was most likely the source of her infection. If I had thought about it more clearly a few weeks ago, I might have had time to help her more. They could have cleaned her teeth and possibly saved her, but that is only speculation.
She has lived a full and loved life, except for the last few days when she was suffering so. I even caught my self wishing she could just give up and be at peace. I told her often the last few days how very sorry I was that I had been so distracted with other things that I hadn't noticed her problem. I also told her often how very much I loved her and that I would miss her, but it was best that she go on without me at least for now.
