Freebie kit

Evening folks!

I'm posting now instead of before bed because I'm a tired momma and just might retire with the chickens I told you guys a few days ago that we were in the process of getting snowed in, and boy, did we...8 inches covered our area and the roads were a mess. The kids loved it because they didn't have school and had a big snow to play in.

Okay, so I hate the wet clothes mess and the tracks of snow through the house, but my 13-year-old and all his friends in the neighborhood gathered for some sleigh riding. It was all good until about 2pm yesterday when my son took a spill off the sled.

He walked into the house holding his arm and said "Mom, I think we have a problem". Okay, yeah, big problem because I could see the bone sticking up on his arm. So I jumped up and threw some clothes on, changed him out of his wet clothes, and off we went to the hospital. The hospital actually got him in pretty quick, but we knew it wasn't good when the x-ray tech cringed when she saw his arm.

The doctor confirmed that it was fractured. We left about three hours later with his arm in a soft cast and some pain meds that should have knocked him out. I say should have because he was hurting so bad that we were up half the night. I finally gave up, gave him my bed, and got on the

This morning we called the orthopedist and went to see him this afternoon. The orthopedist said he fractured his radius bone (the big one) at the wrist. You could see the fracture on the x-ray really easy. It started on the outside of the bone, went through his growth plate, and continued to the other side of the growth plate. It came really close to being a full break.

They put him in a cast and of course there is no lifting for the next few weeks, but he should be all healed in about 5 weeks. This is good news because baseball season starts

So while I was up last night I made a mini kit for you guys. This kit is totally free this weekend for anyone that wants it. Links will be removed Monday, so be sure to grab it this weekend.

I've gone RED in this kit to help promote the American Heart Association's "Go Red for Women" day. The kit is filled with hearts and lace and of course all done in the color of red.

Kit includes:
5 Papers
1 Beaded Dangle
1 Beads
3 Borders
3 Bows
2 Butterflies
2 Buttons
2 Flowers
3 Frames
3 Hearts
1 Safety Pin
3 Ribbons
2 Ribbon Hearts
4 Tags

Kit links have now been removed. You can purchase the kit in my store here.

I'm also going to show off a tag that was made using one of my tutorials and a scrap kit of mine. A very sweet lady named Patty made this for a friend of hers. Great job Patty!

Doesn't seeing a man in uniform do something for you? God bless these men and women and keep them safe. They are giving up so much to keep us free and safe.

The tutorial is called "My Valentine Wears Combat Boots" and uses my "Boots On The Ground" scrap kit. You can find the scrap kit in all my stores. The tutorial can be found on my scrap site here.

I also wanted to recognize two nice ladies who sent me awards for my blog. Thank you Maggie and Sherry! You can view their blogs here:


That's it for me tonight. I bought some new tubes and I'm gonna go play for a bit. Maybe I will get really creative and come up with a new

Have a great night all!

TYVM for the wonderful RED yummies!

I can relate to the busted arm, only my son's was in 3rd grade during school & he fell off of the icy playground equipment so hard that when he landed one bone snapped, twisted & smashed through the other bone. ALMOST landed hard enough to break through the skin. Took a 6 inch metal pin surgically inserted, 4 casts, & 16 weeks to get it healed.

Hope your son feels better soon & you can get some rest!!

Hiya lady! I just did a tut with this kit. Between the time I got it and the time I wrote up the tut, the kit went PTU! Anyway, I usually send the tag to the scrap designers, but I can't find an e-mail link on your blog. So, you can see it here:

Hope you like it! Have a great day!
