UNDERSTATEMENT of the CENTURY!!!

Wow! To say that I was 'surprised' with the warm response my blog received yesterday for my FIRST POST EVER is definately the understatement of the century! I am 100% BLOWN AWAY with the number of friendly comments, emails, downloads etc etc etc!

THANK YOU SO MUCH for making me feel a tiny bit less awkward about this whole new 'blog thing.' (Ha ha ha! Notice I didn't say that I feel comfortable yet! That won't happen for QUITE some time... LOL!)

I wasn't sure if I would be blogging every weekday, or leaving some time in between posts.... (and I'm still not sure) but I HAD to blog today to say THANKS and to **sniff sniff** CRY and tell you all that you all ROCK!!!

So my quest for the day is to learn about google blog readers. Several of you mentioned to me that you use them to stay on top of when your favorite blogs are updated.... and that sounds so cool! (You're going to hear about ALL KINDS of things that are new to ME that you all have been using FOREVER - feel free to laugh..... but I'm not afraid to admit that I'm a novice! Ha ha!) I'm constantly clicking from blog to blog - trying to see if there have been any updates since my last visit. How cool to be updated automatically!!! I'm definately going to check all of that out.... let me know if you have any tips for me.

In case you weren't aware yet, the ever-so-fabulous Kim Broedelet has a new commercial use grab bag out right now. It's jam-packed with wonderful goodies (as always) and this week it's on SALE.... so GO, GO, GO! LOL!

Here is a 'hint' as to what is inside....



This layout does NOT show everything that is inside of it.... just a tiny tease. But I used several things from the bag. Isn't my little guy a cutie?! He's much bigger than that now.... but I have always loved this picture because he's flashing a little 'V' or 'peace sign' with his fingers! "V" is for "Valentine" this time of year right?

And because you all DESERVE it.... I made you another freebie for today. If you like the stacked cluster frame I used in my layout, it's yours! Snag it up here today as a 'thank you' for being one of the first to read my new blog!

Here is a preview:



And I forgot to mention that they are .png files and saved at 300ppi.... but I'm guessing that you would assume that anyway right? LOL! Here is the download link:

Enjoy! See ya later!

What doodle said about the frames, Beth! Wow, your own blog! I'm gonna have to put a link on mine (until you get your own blinkie that is) to you, so i can visit often, cause already i can see i'm gonna like to visit YOU!

And that little cutie? I think maybe he's saying, "uh-oh Mommy! number 2!" LOL!

Love having your blog to watch. I use my RSS feature in IE. When you are on the blog you want to watch and click on the icon next to the printer in the browser it takes you to the feed of that blog. Then at the top it gives you the option to subscribe. When you get subscribed it will refresh in the favorites star. You click on feeds and they show up in a list. You can set up feed properties to refresh every 15 minutes or others. If it hasn't refreshed you can right click and refresh all. Clear as mud? It has helped me spend less time searching for something I might have missed.

Thank you for those beautiful frames! I love the layout you did using one of the them; what a little sweetie!

Geezee: thanks for the info, it will come in handy! I'm one of those people that spends the day searching to make sure I don't miss anything, lol. This definitely will make my life a little easier!

Hello Beth. I missed coming yesterday entirely. I usually 'drop in' on Kim, to get my fix of South African silliness... but was skating on our lake all day among a whole bunch of other things. So... welcome to the blogging world - and your blog looks lovely. Your frames are lovely. Your journalling is lovely... and entertaining. This will all be 'old hat' to you soon, though I'm sure you will become addicted like the rest of us. Your layouts are sweet and baby a cutie. Congrats for taking the plunge and I will come check on you now and again.

You are doing great on your blog. I have had one for quite a while and just never seem to remember to post anything to it. I am in awe that you have only been digiscrapping for such a short time. What a great gift you have and I really appreciate you sharing that gift with someone like me who has the urge, but not the ability to make all these beautiful we see on other's pages. Thanks so much--and keep blogging!
