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. ๐Ÿ˜›

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



I LOVEย rustic anything… ๐Ÿ˜€

GS Creations has some Christmas paper templates in her shop.


Y’all know by now how I feel about Gaye’s templates. ๐Ÿ˜›

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’… ๐Ÿ˜‰

New digital stunner by KimB’s Designs!!

Posted on 29th November 2014 in Kim. B

Holy crap!!!

Every now and then I see a kit that literally takes my breath away. I look at it, and say “THIS stunner was created in Photoshop?”

Yesterday was that day. Have a look-see…

Handmade With Love



Personally I love all the neutral colors. I really like the wee pops of red too but the neutrals are something I would use everyday..not just for Christmas. There’s a slew of co-ordinating goodies that go with this kit if you decide to purchase the collection.




The extras include:





Added to all this excitement is the fact that it is being sold in Kim’s new store at the Digital Press. A fun new venture with friends!

Lots of goodies and sales going on this weekend!

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 ย 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 fewย 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. ๐Ÿ˜›

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!!

Um, where did summer go?

Posted on 22nd August 2014 in Kim. B

According to my last blog post it was July 6th. ย This is now the end of August.ย *facepalm*

This has been our summer.

  • baseball (some weeks it was 4 times a week. After a busy season they won the championship)
  • 10615493_10152623009421011_6397443517898075070_n
  • 10405427_10152625554376011_34277161979349997_n
  • work
  • sleep
  • renovations in basement (including removing concrete slab for drainage installation, rough plumbing, framing, a zillion trips to hardware store to buy stuff that someone forgot)
  • landscaping ย (did some planting, replanting and carrying umpteen buckets of rocks from the field behind us and spread out 6 yards of mulch)
  • 10535652_10152595298391011_9082773813608015061_oย (one of the gardens)
  • broken toes
  • cracked face (including black eye and dislodged molar from collision with Great Pyranese’ cement head)
  • overtime
  • more sleep
  • endlessly trucking our punk to various babysitting jobs, sleepovers, festivals, shopping trips)
  • standing Friday lunch dates with my punk (she’s getting older and she enjoys time with just me as she realizes her father is a tool. LOL)

That’s been our summer. Work. Sleep. Construction. Nothing fun as a family. We haven’t had time. The punk starts Grade 10 in a week and we’ve had the boring-est summer ever. LOL! I will say however, that I’m glad school is going back because the punk needs to be back on a routine. No more of this staying up until 3 in the morning every night shit. (I sleep better during the day when she’s in school too as there isn’t an endless drone of talking on Skype, cackling at Vine videos and watching endless scary movies).

This morning was the first time I’ve been on the computer in 6 weeks. I clear out emails and check Facebook from my phone for the most part but as far as replying to anything I haven’t been on the desktop. I was seriously stunned by how much I’ve missed as far as KimB’s Designs, GS Creations and Loucee’s Creations new CU releases. Ugh. I seriously suck as a CT member this year. I did notice Kimย has a new grab bag out for the month of September….



I will definitely be checking this out!!

Well sadly I’ve been yakking too long. We have company company tomorrow and a ton of errands to get done today. Also cleaning. Ugh. Besides blogging, cleaning is another thing I haven’t done in six weeks….

Make it a good one! Until next time! ๐Ÿ˜‰

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. ๐Ÿ˜› (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!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

**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… ๐Ÿ˜‰

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!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

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!!

Oh there’s a new Grab Bag in town!!

Posted on 8th June 2014 in Kim. B

Today was the first time I’ve had a chance to sit at the computer all week.

June is crazy busy with the kid’s baseball three days a week and dance twice a week. THANKFULLY the dance recital is this coming Saturday. One long ass day left (11am to 12:30am) and then were done with that until September. Costume is ready. Hair and makeup crap set aside. I’m picking up the best friend and the boy friend so they can share her day as well. He’s a brave sort isn’t he?! LOL! Super nice kid really. (he’s just going to get REALLY in touch with his girly side whether he wants to or not) ๐Ÿ˜›

Anywho…. KimB’s Designs has released a new Commercial Use Grab Bag. For a limited time only, this sucker is only $5!!!!


Treats yourself before it goes to full price!!! Just sayin’…. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Have a busy day here. More baseball practice at 10am, then I have to finish pulling weeds and cleaning up. Crazy week. I won’t have a chance after today. Time to get the tunes cranked and get cleaned up.


Have a good one folks!!

“Star Gazing” on this fine Saturday

Posted on 31st May 2014 in Chattin', Kim. B


Have you ever had one of those sleeps that’s so deep and solid that when a loud noise goes off, like hubby’s alarm, it scares you half out of your wits? Especially if that alarm went off at 5am. ๐Ÿ˜› I haven’t been able to get back to sleep. I was literally scared awake. Ugh.

I’ve managed to get a ton of stuff started since 5am, like laundry, coffee, cleaned out my phone of rude e-cards and pics of my punk, got the pool pump going and now I’m going to blog. (actually I’m just killing time until I can go into the city, get my shopping done and then come back here and park my butt in a hammock for a short time before I have to start a slew of baking for the Camp Day bake sale on Wednesday)

I’m currently slurping on said coffee and jamming out to this one. I just can’t sit still when I hear this..


So without any further yakkin’, let’s show you what’s new…

Kim of KimB’s Designs and her sister Gaye of GS Creations have an AMAZING bundle of temples called Star Gazing.


So freakin’ cool I can’t even describe it and the attention to detail blew my mind!!

I always wished we invested in a telescope. We live out in the country where the sky is as black as pitch at night and we’d be able to see the night sky clear as a bell. ๐Ÿ˜€

If you have a little (or big) stargazer in your family, this bundle might be what you are looking for that perfect scrap page. Just putting that out there… ๐Ÿ˜‰

Well I’m off to get showered and get this day going. Have a super weekend!!

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 purringย 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. ย 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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

New Cu Goodies at SugarHill Co.!!

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. ๐Ÿ˜›

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. ๐Ÿ˜›

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 ๐Ÿ˜€


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. ๐Ÿ˜‰












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!! ๐Ÿ˜€
