High/Low - February 15th + Freebie + MORE!

So here it is after 3am (my time) and I can't sleep. I've had quite an awful day because it's that time of the month again and my cramps are worse than usual. Thankfully my hubby came home early and took the kids for awhile so I got a nap in, which really helped. But now I can't sleep. So I thought I could get caught up on some design things, but for some reason I am having a hard time being creative. I mean I have enough to do...a huge list really. A new issue of ScrapStyle to get done, an exciting new project that is actually my HIGH today (see below), I've got a huge list of ideas for kits to get started on, my brother's wedding invitation to do, some mega kit submissions to finish, some uploading to do to backup my HD, I could do some laundry and house cleaning, my computer is a mess, I really could take some time to organize it.....but of course none of these were really appealing to me. So I turned on a movie and was sitting and watching it when I realized that I have FOUR crops this coming week! And I'm not I thought I would do some preparing for that and I got a little creative streak....AND created some BRAND NEW Preview Cards. So same logo and everything, but I have a bit of a new image for myself! I'm actually liking it quite well! SO you get a look into my new image with today's freebie....scroll down! :) So anyways, I'm REALLY trying to get caught up with everything. I know you are all probably anxious for me to get another kit out, but I will get to it as soon as I can. I'm trying very hard to get through my to-do list. So please be patient with me!

My LOW for the week was definitely that my son was sick this week. He was doing better today so I sent him to school so he didn't miss out on his Valentine's Day party so that was good. He's still coughing a bit, but at least his fever is gone. Fevers really scare me because for the past few years, everytime JJ got a high fever he would have grand maul seizures. In addition to all his developmental delays and all the problems we had, this was just another scary thing in his short life. Thankfully, his last seizure was almost a year ago, so maybe he has grown out of them! I really hope so! It scares me so much to even think of that. So of course I was hovering pretty close this week, really fearing that he would have a seizure. But it looks like we made it through without one this time. Yay!

My HIGH for the week is I just got an amazing opportunity! It's still not completely figured out yet, but it looks like I am going to be able to illustrate a CHILDREN'S BOOK! And I will be using my TearZ Animal Templates to do it! I can't tell you all the details yet, as we are still in the process of figuring it all out, but I am just so excited! I never would have imagined that my animal tearz would be published in a book, but they fit so well with the story and everything! I am just so thrilled to do this! I'll let you know more as everything gets figured out!

Thanks for staying with me through this long post! I do have a freebie for you today. I figured since it was President's Day Weekend (for those of you in the USA), that you might all find a use for a little patriotic bear! Hope you enjoy it! And let me know what you think of my new previews!

WONDERFUL news DeDe! How exciting about the book! I can't wait to hear more about it! Congratulations!!

Glad to hear your son didn't have any seizures this sickness! I hope, as well, that he has outgrown them!

I like your new logo...that's cute.

Sounds like you might be a bit overwhelmed...and who would blame you for feeling that way?! Maybe you could put just ONE item in front of you to work on...and try to put the other things out of your mind...maybe it would help seeing just the one thing to work on at a time instead of a list?? Seems to help my son that gets overwhelmed with homework when he has been sick for a few days (like this week).

Thank you for the's cute!

Off to shop your sale...I'm going to get that mega kit "scrapbook essentials" today...even though I already have one of the little sets...this is too good to pass up!

Have a good weekend!
