Sharing Something Pretty

As some of you may know, I will be participating in a blog train that starts on New Years Day. One of the designers that is participating made a beautiful QP from my kit. Here is what she made:



Isn't it GORGEOUS???? I really love how it came out!


If you are interested in downloading it, you can find it at her blog. If you do snag it, please be sure to leave a little love, as I'm sure she'd love to hear it!!


Be sure to come back on January 1st for the New Years Convoy (blog train) so you can grab some beautiful portions of this kit! The designers have been working hard at it, and I'm sure you'll love what you see.


Thanks again for looking and until next time...


take care and stay safe!!

Happy Blessed Yule

Photobucket


Good afternoon everyone, and Happy Yule!



For those of you who follow a pagan path, today is Yule, otherwise known as the Winter Solstice. It is also the longest day of the year, which will also mark a gradual 'return' of the Sun. Today, my family will be having a delicious dinner together. May you all have a wonderful, blessed Yule this season.


In commemoration of this day, I made a Yuletide minikit, which I'm sharing with you all. It has 8 papers (in both tagger size and full size!) and 12 elements. Here is the preview:

Photobucket


And here are the download links:


Full size Papers (12 inch x 12 inch, 200 ppi, png format with matching jpgs)
CLICK HERE


Tagger size Papers (600 pixels x 600 pixels, 72 ppi, png format with matching jpgs)
CLICK HERE


Elements (no larger than 600 pixels x 600 pixels, 200 ppi, png format)
CLICK HERE



I hope that you enjoy this little Yuletide kit. This is actually the last kit I will be offering this year that has a holiday theme to it. I will have a New Years kit on the 1st, which will be part of a New Years Convoy blog train, so be sure to come back and check it out! I'm also working on some other stuff - both freebies and for the store - so keep an eye out for those as well.



May you all have a joyous holiday - however you spend it - with your family and friends. Keep the spirit of the season in your heart and life now, and always.



Blessings,
WillowRaven

**CORRECTION: I meant to write "It is also the longest NIGHT of the year", not "It is also the longest day of the year"... my apologies~! Guess I shouldn't be trying to do 20 things at once! LOL**

Bowed Over

Ok… kinda corny… I know, I know.

Anyways, this is going to be a quick post as I have been up since about midnight (so about 14 hours now) and thinking of laying down for a nap to get rid of this headache, however I wanted to share my newest store item with you all!


I made some very pretty, simple bows in 10 wonderful colors. They are very reasonably priced. Here is a preview of them:

Now, keep in mind that the preview is smaller than actual size of the items.


So head on over to the The Creativity Shack to check out these and other items I have on sale there!


I have also added a poll on the top of the right hand column. It ends on 12/21/08, so if you could please just take a quick look at it and give me your response, I would greatly appreciate it!


And, be sure to check back on the 15th as the Holly Jolly Express will be making it’s way in to the station with another holiday freebie! And I am working on some other freebies to share with you all as well.


Take care and until next time…

New Items in the Store, An Award and a Freebie!

Hello everyone!

Well I've been a busy little bee! Not only was I working on the blog train items, I was also working on some other freebies (still am, in fact) and also working on a couple of items to add to the store! I wanted to let you know about the 2 new additions to the store, and the link, in case you are interested.

I have a set of bow flowers and a paper pack at the store now and I'm very excited about them! Here are the previews:

Photobucket
Swirled Bow Flowers #1

Photobucket
Swiss Dot Papers #1

Each is only $2.00, however there is a sale going on so they are each just $1.30! Great buy, if you ask me. So if you want them, the time is now because the sale won't last much longer! (EDIT: 9 PM, 12/2/08: Sale is over - prices have gone back to their original amounts.)

The link to the store is:
The Creativity Shack

I'm listed under Designers as Purple Dragonfly Creations. You can also find the items listed under Elements (for the flowers) and Paper Packs (for the papers). My other items (Country Flowers and Textured Papers) can also be found under those categories, as well as under my Designer listing.

And Alexe of Alexe's Creations gave me a very pretty award! Thanks Alexe!! Here it is:

Photobucket

As a recipient, I am to bestow this award to 5 more people. I choose:

Aqua (she has such awesome tag templates!)
Sunf (more awesome tag templates!)
Soto (she headed up the Christmas Convoy!)
Melanie (wonderful word-art!)
Beth (what can I say? All around awesome talent, generous spirit and never-ending energy!)

Congrats everyone - you all deserve this award!! Now it's up to you 5 to pass it on to 5 more people.


And now, on to the freebie!

In keeping with the holiday spirit, I created a holiday flower which I am putting here today as a freebie! Its a holiday flower in a seasonal red hue. Here is the preview:

Remember also, that I have 4 blog trains here (see posts on December 1st) and will have another one arriving on December 15th, so be sure to check back often to nab up the goodies as I'm always working on something!

Until next time, take care and have a great day!

And coming up on Track #2 is the Christmas Convoy Train! This train will be making stops all around the world so be sure to have your travelling clothes on and your snagging fingers ready. At last count, we had about 45 designers signed up to participate – and I know we had more joining us after that, so this is a very big kit, when combined! Here is my share of the train:

My share contains:

10 papers and 14 elements

And the download links are:

Papers – Full Sized - (12 in x 12 in, 300 ppi) – png and jpg in zip

Elements – 300 ppi, png format only


Now, this blog train is only for Full Size Kits… however… I have made the following tagger size papers available which are NOT part of the train, however they are the same papers as the ones you find in the Christmas Convoy kit. You do NOT have to download this if you don’t wish. I just know that some taggers (being a tagger myself) prefer the smaller size papers as they are easier to work with. For those that desire that size, here they are:

Papers – Tagger Size (600 pixels x 600 pixels, 300 ppi) – png and jpg in zip


EDIT: December 3, 2008 ... 8:15 AM Central Time, USA: For those who were here from December 1st to now, the link for the Tagger Sized Papers for the Christmas Convoy was incorrect. It originally brought you to the Elements download. My apologies for this error! The link has now been fixed and SHOULD bring you to the Tagger Sized Papers. If you still experience problems with this, PLEASE let me know. I am SOOOO sorry I didn't catch this sooner.


And the list of participating designers in the Christmas Convoy are:
