Freebie Alert & Update

Hope everyone had an awesome Thanksgiving and Christmas!! That whole time our household was sick with the flu ... still sick and so sick of being sick. All turned out well with testing for my step-daughter ... so very happy about that. Other hurdles to get over but hey, one down, right? Right!

Since I am still lagging behind on getting much of anything done I did throw together a FREEBIE for you Facebook users. How about a 2014 New Years Cover photo to make up for my absence. That is about all I had time for, for now. Hope you like it.

Have a safe and HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone!!

You can download it HERE.

And my absence continues, for a bit ....

Sorry, I'm still here. I've just been side-tracked with the health of my step daughter. Been in and out of appointments and tests, scans etc. Waiting for results from an MRI to see what the "spot" is they found on her pituitary gland. Praying it is not a tumor. Once things settle down I will be back.

My latest WIP

I have this new project going ... shh, it's a secret since I don't know if I can pull off what I have in mind. If not it becomes a different project, lol.

I LOVE this yarn color combo!! The variegated is RH Earth and Sky.

A couple crocheted items.

The granny square bag was really fun to work. It is based off a smaller pattern called "Granny Square Purse". I had other ideas for it so went my own way. I added really long handles and then knotted them as shown for a visual effect. I wove in satin ribbon in and out of the top row of the granny squares around. The red is really garish in this image but not so on the bag itself. My camera isn't too true to original colors.

The "Kitty" Purse ... aren't they just adorable?! My Granddaughters love them. I made one in RH Pink Camo (see next image) which I just love the color! And this one in purple (doesn't look purple does it!) I don't care for it as much. I got the pattern for this one at Ideal Solutions (edit: it seems to have been removed for some reason. Sorry). There are other patterns available if you Google for them.

A 'charted' leaf pattern I recently did

I have been trying to find some different leaf patterns that look realistic but well - we can't always get what we want. I did find this one on Pinterest and had a go with it. There was no linking address to go with this so I have no idea where it originated from. I got one of those spammy links so never allowed the browser to connect to it. I used this image tho and printed it along with my result from trying the pattern. It is okay but not exactly what I was looking for so the search will go on. If anyone knows where the credit may belong with this chart please send me a note. Thx.

Check it out ... I"m not lost after all

Yeah I know ... it has been a while right?! My apologies. Life gets in the way sometimes and I hope I am on the mend with all those rotten interruptions that have kept me from doing what I love most!

I have some major updates planned. I am still going to do my main category ... Digital Designs, but I am going to add a few new categories to my blog as well. To be honest it has been so long since I did much with my pages that Blogger has changed so much of how things work, it is taking me a bit to catch up ... so bare with me as I work through the new learning curves.

I plan on adding some new categories, and my first new category is going to be Crochet! I love to crochet just about everything. But to be realistic, there is never enough hours in a day to accomplish everything I desire, lol. I'm sure everyone can relate to this! But, I will post some of the things I have crocheted, maybe links to things I "want" to crochet ... etc, etc, etc. I hope along the way you might even find something "YOU" like!

My second new category will be Photography. I have always had a love affair with my camera. I'm not professional by any means, don't have a "pro" camera, but it's good enough for me, for now. And I can manipulate the crap out of them to make them look even better *wink*. I will show you some of my favorite pics and after I set up shop I will even have full size images for sale.

I think I will also want to work on a new background design. I like this one but want something more cheery!  That will be a work in progress however .....

Enough good news for now. Follow me through my journey and be sure to check back often. I hope to be around much more often!

And last but not least ... to my Followers who have not dropped me, and are still around themselves I would like to say THANKS for sticking with me.

And to my new Visitors ... Welcome, I hope you enjoy your stay!

Glad you like MY Page Title enough to steal it!

Inspiration Station is MY baby. May not have been here much lately - which will change soon enough, but that doesn't give you the right to take what isn't yours! I am flattered you liked it well enough to snag it, however. YOU know who you are. Too bad however, with your own creative abilities, you didn't make your own instead of stealing mine. Just goes to show what you are really made of. SHAME ON YOU ... get a life ... DO YOUR OWN CREATIONS!!
