New CU goodies at SugarHill Co!!

Posted on 7th December 2014 in GS Creations, Kim. B, Loucee Creations

As usual I am bringing up the rear with blogging (and lets face it, life in general). My three favorite designers have new commercial use stuffies in their stores at SugarHill Co and I am just now blogging about it. πŸ˜›

LouCee’s Creations has some rustic Christmas templates and some plaid ribbons that I just adore…



I LOVEΒ rustic anything… πŸ˜€

GS Creations has some Christmas paper templates in her shop.


Y’all know by now how I feel about Gaye’s templates. πŸ˜›

And Kimmie? Well I swear KimB’s Designs is the most tolerant of the lot. LMAO!!!






She has been a wonderful friend to me this year. She knows all the crap I am going through and has been known to drop me a cartoon that makes me spew coffee out of my nose and brighten the day. I’m incredibly lucky she doesn’t fire my ass.:-P

These goodies are on sale for a few days , so if you want some new goodies to add to your stash, then this is the time!! Just sayin’… πŸ˜‰

Knock knock…anyone there?

Posted on 2nd November 2014 in Chattin', GS Creations, Kim. B, Loucee Creations


I swear I don’t know where this year has gone. Today is the first chance I’ve had in over a month to actually get on the computer. I usually quickly check stuff on my phone.


Isn’t that the truth….

What has Β been keeping me so busy? Work. My personal life. Dance class. The kid’s personal life. The kid’s job. Renos (Basement is now insulated. Takes forever when hubby keeps getting called in for OT). and throw a fewΒ birthdays in there and we’ve been busier than shit. I haven’t had more than two minutes to myself because all it seems I do is RUN. Hubby is on straight night shift until after Christmas I think, so I’m doing the majority of the carpooling. No rest today as I have to drive to Caledonia to pick up the fundraising orders and pick up my daughter’s boyfriend. Next week it’s an honors ceremony at my daughter’s school and then company arrives. It’s never.ending. πŸ˜›

I am so behind in CT work. I logged on today and noticed there was a blog hop going on for National Digi-scrapping Day. I totally forgot about that one. Here’s some of the grab bags my girls have come up with that are still on sale (I checked)









I am DYING to get my hands on Gaye’s new templates!!! They are soo freaking sweet!!

Well I had better get my butt in gear. I am enjoying the time change and the quiet house because in less than two hours it will be chaos again. Have a great week folks!!

Chit chat and new CU from KimB’s Designs!!

Posted on 6th July 2014 in Chattin', GS Creations, Kim. B


It’s actually 8am here and it’s going to be a gorgeous sunny day. We’re on deck for baseball practice at 10 and then we have to rush back home because my daughter is having her annual end-of-the-school-year BBQ/pool party/bonfire. The volley ball net is up. The horseshoe pits are ready and I (as the chaperone) have some cold ones in the fridge downstairs. Nothing fancy today. Teenagers are fussy eaters, so it’s just burgers, chips, a fruit platter and a veggie platter. I’ll be making some chocolate covered pretzels later this aft as they went over like gangbusters with my punk and her friends the last time I made them. πŸ˜› (I will probably make a macaroni salad because I’m addicted to the stuff.) Hubby got called in to work overtime today so hopefully I don’t blow the place up trying to get his fiddly BBQ started. LOL! All told it will be a fun day. I’m just going to putter in the garden, park my butt in the hammock and read and cook up the burgers as needed. They are a decent bunch of kids so there shouldn’t be any problems. She invited 25 but I think with the summer holidays we’ll be lucky if we see 10. Come and keep me company!! πŸ˜‰

**edited** Here I am 24 hours later. One exhausted dog is still passed out cold on the floor after his day yesterday. Kids had fun. Stayed in the pool until 7:30 at which point they were fed and headed to the bonfire. Three of them fell asleep in their chairs at the fire. LOL!! It wasn’t a big crowd. Ten kids altogether. The rest that were invited weren’t coming because we wouldn’t allow drugs and alcohol. Oh well. Suck it up. Those that came had a riot so it was all good.

KimB’s Designs has a new set of CU patterns in her shop today.


I was hoping to get into these last night and play in Photoshop but I was BBQing instead. This afternoon is all mine though… πŸ˜‰

Kim’s sister Gaye of GS Creations has a super cute new set of templates. Check these cuties out!!



So cute!!! I love her attention to every detail!! These Little Police templates are on sale for a limited time! So act fast!! πŸ˜‰

Well I’m off to open the pool. A friend and her two toddlers are coming over this morning to cool off before nap time. LOL!! Have a great day!!

Happy Easter!!

Posted on 20th April 2014 in Chattin', GS Creations, Kim. B, Loucee Creations


So far it’s lovely and quiet. No one is up yet, so I have a pot of coffee to myself and a purringΒ cat is perched on my lap trying to “help” me type.

My month long layoff (vacation) is now over and I was called back to work earlier than planned. If you ask me, they should have stayed with the original opening date, as we had to work around construction workers who hadn’t finished yet. The place was FILTHY. Dust everywhere. Half of the machines were either NOT working properly or not connected yet. Water lines weren’t connected. need those in a coffee shop. Duh. Half of our supplies were either not unpacked or still in storage. My training was cancelled so I had to wing it. I hadn’t seen the new ovens before so it was a real learning curve. Β It will be better as time goes by but it will take a few weeks before we find everything and get settled in properly.

I’m trying to get caught up on a few things before I get breakfast going (I hear movement and giggling), so I will make this quick πŸ˜‰

New Cu Goodies at SugarHill Co.!!

By KimB’s Designs:







lots of new things to choose from! πŸ˜‰

Well the natives are restless, so I’m going to sign off and get this Easter show on the road. Have a great week!!

Easter is FAST approaching….

Posted on 4th April 2014 in Chattin', GS Creations, Kim. B

…which means I will have to return to work. I have enjoyed not having to go in each night and after some adjustment, I have enjoyed sharing the bed with hubby again. πŸ˜›

What have I accomplished? Well if you saw the mess of the house you would say “nothing” because it is FILTHY. This is why it’s filthy…


That stinky mess is what is left of 32′ feet of chimney that hubby tore out of the middle of the house. Part of the mess (okay a HUGE bunch of mess) came from the guest bedroom. Lath and plaster had to be torn out before we got to the chimney and then once he tore out the chimney and repaired the hole in the floor and the ceiling, he got this brilliant idea to tear out more lath and plaster so he could use a bigger piece of drywall. Not a problem, except when he did that last night, he failed to cover anything up. Like the computer equipment, office chair, desk… you get the idea. It’s FILTHY. Ugh. It seems to be a lost cause. LOL! Between all the dust, spring mud that the dog tracks in, cat hair and other dirt from outside; the house is pretty much a wreck. LMAO!!

I’m going to try and clean up as much as I can this weekend but I think it will take a few scrubbings plus maybe a visit from a cleaning lady to get it where it’s just not gross. πŸ˜›

OK, enough of me gabbing…

Kim B’s Designs and her sister Gaye of GS Creations have been busy creating goodies for your commercial use!

Here’s the new goodies from Gaye πŸ˜€


FOLDER_thumb[11]So sweet!! I can’t wait to play with these!


FOLDER-444I am SUCH a junkie for Gaye’s templates and patterns!!

Kim has been keeping me busy with downloads this morning as well. πŸ˜‰












I LOVE Kim’s textures and I love layering them over her damask patterns. I could play in Photoshop for HOURS with her collections!!

Lots of goodies this week…why don’t you check them out and treat yourself?

Well that’s it for me for now. I have a TON of stuff to do today. Better get a fresh pot of coffee on.

Have a great day folks!! πŸ˜€

I want to go swimming!

Posted on 9th March 2014 in GS Creations, Kim. B, Loucee Creations

While I am wallowing in this lovely Arctic Vortex, I was quickly checking my mail and came across this set of beautiful templates by Kim and Gaye. Holy crap!! I want to swimming and diving and soak up the sun…

Have an awesome day folks!!

Silence is awesome

Posted on 1st March 2014 in GS Creations, Kim. B, Loucee Creations

The house is still quiet. Steve and Julie won’t be up for a few hours yet. (okay SHE won’t be up for a few hours. I will be lucky if she shows her face at noon). The dog is passed out snoring on the floor. The cat is up, happily fed and quietly purring on my lap. I have a pot of fresh coffee and the house to myself. Sounds awesome doesn’t it?!


Feel free to add your own sound bite. I cannot carry a tune in a bucket. LMAO!!

I’m trying to clear out one of my inboxes. Already dealt with Feedly. Apparently there were over 500 articles I haven’t ready yet. Seriously? Unsubbed from a ton and marked everything else “read”. (Haven’t missed blog stalking to be honest.). Simplify. Simplify. Uncluttering the house and my life. Hard work but end results are so worth it.

I finally have Photoshop installed on my computer but I haven’t installed any filters, brushes, actions, styles or other stuff I used to use. One of these days. For now I am enjoying the computer being clutter free. πŸ˜‰

For those of you that still play in Photoshop , Kim, Gaye and Lou have new CU products at SugarHill Co. πŸ˜‰

Lou has a new grab bag of goodies.

lcc_CUGrabBagSix new products for $5. (previews of contents in store. So sweet!)

Kim has a new pack of bows…

kb-TM-stripey8It was so good hearing from her this week!! She makes me laugh every time…

Gaye has blown me away as usual with her templates.

FOLDER-425So freaking cute!!!

FOLDER-430Simply amazing!!!

FOLDER-428I will admit to a HUGE pattern addiction.

Lots of goodies and sales to take advantage of! Treat yourself !!

I’m off to go thru my CD collection. Saving a few to my external HD but the entire lot of them is going to Value Village. Let someone else get some enjoyment out of them. I am keeping a few for my vehicle but over 300 will be gone by the end of today. πŸ˜€

Six more weeks of winter doldrums…

Posted on 2nd February 2014 in GS Creations, Kim. B

Six more weeks of winter. Awesome. That’s what you get for relying on a rodent to forecast the weather. LMAO!!

It’s been weeks since I’ve been on the computer. I just haven’t had time. We have had company and are trying to get this reno started. Mother Nature has had other ideas with her Arctic Vortex. Bone chilling temps, snow, freezing rain etc. is not conducive to being on the roof tearing out the chimney. And so we wait…

This morning I took some time to finally clear out my inboxes and fell in love with the colors, patterns and themes I saw. Sprig is happening somewhere and apparently it’s in South Africa!!

Gaye made my day with her fabulous collection of new templates. If you are a fan at all of ice cream, these are a must have!!




How yummy are these?!

Kim has been busy as well with new CU releases at SugarHill Co. Check these out!








(I am dying to see flowers!!!)







Spring is in the air! (or will be soon. I can feel it in my arthritic bones…) πŸ˜›

What a bonkers week!!!

Posted on 20th October 2013 in GS Creations, Kim. B, Loucee Creations

I haven’t had a nutty week like that in ages. Thank God it’s done. It started off last Sunday night at work when the owner decided it wouldn’t be THAT busy on Thanksgiving, so he eliminated the extra person. It was just two of us until 7am. Big mistake. It was first day of bow hunting so at 4am we got slammed with hunters, the trailer parks closed for the season so we got all the campers and most of our regulars work for steel companies and trucking companies. They don’t get normal days off. Customers were screaming at us, calling us names. Every last one ordered 2,3,4,5 sandwiches as well as bagels. That’s fine when you have the extra person in to do the food, one to do drive thru and me to do front counter. EXCEPT…..I also had an order of 15 dozen donuts to be out for 7am. We were swamped and I was beyond PISSED. The owner made a ton of money off my back and I am NOT amused….

That was Monday and it just continued from there. LOL! I had a ton of chores to do around the house this weekend and NONE of them got done. I went on strike. Went shopping, had a nap, got over the urge to move. LMAO!!!

It was awesome. I may go on strike next weekend too…. πŸ˜›

The designers I CT for have been super busy this week. As usual I am bringing up the rear…. o.O

Loucee Creations:

I am completely in love with Lou’s extractions and this week she did NOT disappoint!!
