It's Calendar Time!

Well the Bleser household has officially reached maximum craziness! Aidan and Zoey started soccer last week - Aidan practices 2x's a week, Zoey only 1. Zoey and Eli start Mother's Day Out tomorrow - 2 days a week from 9 - 2! And the Scouts start next week too although as the Den Leaders, Dave and I are fast and furiously getting prepared! So, between scouts, school, soccer and regular life - we are maxed out! So far it has been fun but then it is only beginning!

I can't believe that not only is it time to start making our Holiday presents, but according to my gift list - I am already behind. Between the calendars, the magnets, the altered items etc - I'll be working from now till January trying to get them all done!

To that end - one of my CT members - Tanya - turned me onto something called "The Holiday Plan." It is a week-by-week organization plan to get your house in order, your gifts bought and made and your baking done! It's pretty cool - check it out!

Some of you may recognize my "Just the Tops" calendar toppers! Well I am re-releasing them and they are better than ever! They are now available in .png format! You can find them here! They are only $8 but for all my blog readers (yes the 2 of you), I am offering a 25% off coupon good till the end of the month. The code is: letsgetstarted08

I love these templates and they will help you (and I) get your annual calendar done in a Jiffy! Last year I ordered mine from Winkflash and was sooo pleased with the quality, I am planning to use them again this year. Hopefully they will have an incentive for early birds who get done early! (as if I would be one of them).

Thanks so much for checking in! I hope you will scroll down and pick up the free template a post below! And please do say Hi!

A Little Something!

Hi ya'll!! I am going to call it an early night! Tomorrow is a busy day - Eli and Zoey get to meet their Mother's Day Out teachers and Eli has a doctor's appointment - again! Poor little guy - he's got an awful ear infection and the antibiotics he has been on for a week aren't helping! :( Add to that a couple of errands that we need to do, taking Aidan to school and picking him up, homework, completing an altered "Mommy and Me" project tomorrow and etc - that's a busy day!

But before, I head to bed, I have something to share! It has been forever since I gave away a freebie just for the fun of it - sooooooo I decided it was high time! Here is a fun and unique (I think!) template for you! The template is based on the layout above that I created using Scrapbook-Bytes' Element Team MegaKit for August - Hit the Trail! It is an awesome kit - the textures and elements are so fabulous! And it is only $5! Check it out here!

Download my template here! I hope you like the template! If you download the template - please leave a comment! And please don't directly link to the freebie - if you want to share the template with someone - that's great - just send them a link to my blog!

Keep a look out - in a few days I'll be re-releasing my calendar tops templates! They are fabulous for working on your 2008 calendar! :) I hope to have them out before the weekend!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great night!

Yay Traci!

I am going to be a better blogger, I am going to be a better blogger, I am going to be a better blogger. Maybe if I say it 10 times it will come true?? Maybe? Oh well - such is life!

Speaking of life, Aidan started school, Eli has an ear infection, Zoey is enjoying her time with Mommy and looking forward to Mother's Day Out starting next week! I am looking forward to the 10 hours a week without any kids! Not sure exactly what I am going to do during that time but I am sure I will fill it somehow!

Big congratulations to my friend and Designer Extraordinaire - Traci Reed! She is the featured artist in Digital Artist Magazine! Her designs are really amazing and she continues to impress me with her talent and also how incredibly special she is as a Mom and Woman. If you haven't checked out the magazine yet, it is a great magazine! Plus this month you will get a free kit titled "The Softer Side" by Traci. Here is a layout I did of Zoey using it!

The kit is really beautiful! Traci's colors are always fabulous and her elements are top notch and always creative!

I can't spend all of my time blogging this afternoon - I've got work to do! LOL! But I definitely wanted to make sure that everyone heard about Traci's wonderful kit and her incredible talent!

Thanks for stopping by! I love it when people leave comments, so please say Hi! Have a great afternoon! Oh and just for fun, here's a layout that I did last night real quick!
