Another Christmas Digital Stamp!

Today I finally finished one of two more Christmas Digital Stamps. It was tight with my busy work schedule, but I finally pulled it off...err well um, at least one of them. :S
Today Jim and Kolby left me alone to work on my Digital Stamp, what a nice hubby! I'm feeling a little under the weather today anyway so its best the day is quiet and somewhat productive. Jim is buying a new sled for Kolby. I had a hard time dragging Kolby's stroller through the snow this past week to our care provider, so this is a must have item right now...except the snow melted away! Figures. At least I am ready when it snows again this time. One day we will buy a second day...

Fun Weekend and Latest Digital Stamp & Clipart

I had an absolutely fantastic weekend with my family. We went to the Santa Claus parade and Kolby was totally stoked about all of the firetrucks, motorcycles, and floats with waving men, women, and children! I must admit that I barely saw a thing as I was staring at my son's reaction to everything he was seeing. His eyes were quarters when he saw Santa and his reindeer! What an awesome experience! He and his Daddy just melt my heart!

It wasn't all fun and games. It was back to the drawing board for me, as I tried to finish up my latest digital stamp and clip art I had started throughout the week. Isn't she lovely? I am so happy with how this gorgeous wedding girly turned out! And the colour printout is absolutely gorgeous! I love all things that sparkle and saturated with beautiful colours. I can just see this girl on a greeting card full of bling! Hehehe! She's also available as a Digital Stamp, so be sure to click the Redonkulous Designs Etsy store bar at the top of the page to purchase this gorgeous digi stamp to add to your collection!

So what else is new this week?

I'm having my Black Friday Sale, so be sure to check out my Redonkulous Designs Facebook page for the Coupon Code. It would be most appreciated if you like the page, but not required to get the code.

Meet "Ribbit" Everyone!

This is my 2 year old son Ribbit (otherwise known as Kolby). He just loves this frog blanket that my hubby brought home one day from Costco. Kolby absolutely fell in love with this blanket and will not leave home without him. I asked him what his name was and he quickly replied Ribbit! Ribbit has been through the wash 100 times, been through the snow and dragged in the mud. You will notice part of his hands are falling apart - but we won't judge! :) So this is what lead me to my next digital stamp creation! I had to call it Ribbit b/c it just seemed so fitting. If you have never seen these blankets in Costco - they have some new ones right now in Canada. The kids LOVE them!!! No joke, the kids always point with excitment when Kolby is wearing his out in public. The parents often stop and ask me where I purchased it. Nothing like bringing smiles to strangers faces! They would make a really sweet Christmas Gift. I'm not mentioning the matching pillows they have. You would just melt from their cuteness!

Well another busy weekend...

I went to North Bay this weekend and got to see my Aunt Kim from Just Wordz selling some of her crafty stuff at the craft show. It was awesome to see the cards she did of mine, and let me tell you, the pictures really don't do them justice!!! They all look so good!

While I was in the Bay visiting, I brought my supplies and drew some rough concepts during the 4 hour car ride. I managed to pump out 4 drawings, and spent Saturday and Sunday cleaning up my American and Canadian version of "Welcome Home Soldier" Stamps. I just love these ones b/c it is the season to remember our veterans and our soldiers who are out there today fighting for freedom. A friend of mine lost her husband to the war a few years ago, and we almost lost a dear childhood American friend in the Pentagon during the 9/11 attacks; who was born and raised in Canada. So lets all remember the ones we love and show them that we appreciate them.

Official Opening! YAY!

Today was the official day my store was made public. I at least made 2 sales in one day! Woohoo! Did I mention the customers didn't even buy a Digi Stamp? I sold my building blocks clip art, and 1 inch square kaleidoscope designs! Didn't see that one coming, but I'm so happy! I think I will have to post an ideas page on what the customers would like to see on my Facebook. I made the mistake by focusing on Halloween when I should have done something more generic. Hindsight is 20/20 though. I really thought people would eat up the Halloween images and get the odd etsy member to purchase, but then when I thought it through, it really doesn't make sense to create a Halloween card - but then again I could be wrong. I need to go with my gut, and maybe focus on the things I love, like fairies, angels, butterflies, babies, girly girls, and animals. You know - the cute things in life. I have several ideas, but we will have to leave these a surprise right? :) To purchase this latest Digit Stamp click here: Babies and Butterflies Also, don't forget to visit me at my Redonkulous Designs Facebook Page

Opening up Redonkulous Designs

Shame on me for not updating my blog for a whole year! I have been a busy bee as a new mom, and recently getting my Etsy shop up and running. It's a lot of work, and hopefully it will bring in more income so we can send our baby boy to an early education facility. It's funny when you have a baby, it becomes all about them and less about yourself. It's a beautiful thing, and I am so happy! Check out my etsy shop. It's called Redonkulous Designs, and I will be making digital stamps, clip art, scrapbooking papers, and much more! The official launch is Nov 1st. I decided to open a bit early so that I can get use to the procedures. Check it out!
