Hello Newsletter Subscribers,

I wasn’t planning on adding new files this week because I have been preparing a visit with my Mother.  I can’t wait to see her.  So, just as a reminder to all of you, I will not be sending out a Newsletter until the first part of November.  Depending on how much “down” time I have while with Mom will determine how many files will be available the first time back here.  So, please bear with me. 

Speaking of bearing with me, that is why I decided to add a few files this week.  Some of you were so supportive this past week concerning the newsletter being sent out properly.  I had no way of knowing who was getting it and who wasn’t.  It was so interesting to find out that some of you were getting it with working hyperlinks, some of you had been getting it with hyperlinks that didn’t work, and some of you weren’t getting the newsletter at all.  So, I am not sure why this happened.  I just hope that it is behind us!

If anyone is planning a trip to Daytona Beach this weekend, be sure to have your motorcycles revved up because it is bike week here.  This is the weekend when my husband and I do one of two things:  we either go out of town to get away from it, or we hunker down until they all leave.  It gets really crazy here.  But, since we will be seeing Mom, we decided to hunker down.  That will allow me time to get clothes ready and to do some book making.  I am thinking of making a book for Mom to take with us so that all that I will have to do is pop in photos…a mini book since she doesn’t have much storage room.  If I get that done, I will share the file with all of you.  I just don’t know if I will get to it or not.  Otherwise,  I will probably just make her one of those drugstore photo books.  We will see!  She is so excited though.  When I told her that we are taking her shopping and out to eat…where would she like to go….she got so excited!  I just can’t wait to go and spoil her!

The files were miscellaneous this week.    If your interests are not being represented, then write to me at and voice your opinion.


My Prayer Life:  Since it is October and Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I decided to tell my story of how I encountered breast cancer and my journey.  Hope that it can serve to be inspirational to those of you who have encountered this disease that that can be a source of hope for you.  Medicine has come a long way since my encounter….but my ending was truly a miracle.  Hope that you will take the time to read the story. J

If  you have prayer requests, please send them to this address: 

In the subject area, type PRAYER REQUEST.  Do not send last names.  Only first names and brief descriptions of the situation.  God knows what is going on! :-)  I will add them to my prayer list!  I also ask that if the prayer is answered that you let me know so that we can give Him Praise!

ORDERS for WPC , PDF, SVG, and MTC files:  This feature is for those of you who need a special file.  I charge for these kinds of files.  The price would be determined by the complexity of the file. 

Also, from here on in, I am listing all free files as pdf and wpc.  If you want an svg or mtc, let me know....but I will be charging $1/file.  Most programs accept pdfs.  If I list all file formats on my website, it takes way too long and takes away from the quantity and quality of the designs that I want to post in the future.  This will encourage you to learn how to import pdf if you don't already know how.  One person said that she didn't know how to use pdf for svg.....well....I made a tutorial on how to do this and it is listed on the site under VIDEOS.

Videos:  That is something that I hope to work out during vacation time.  My voice and the video are totally out of sync!  I can’t seem to get the settings just right and lack the patience to utilize the time to do it!  So, I hope to work on this during down time.

I would like to see some of your work that you have made using the files listed in the IzzaBoutChu! Site.  Please share!

Some of you shared your photos at the Izzaboutchu! Yahoo Group site!  It warmed my heart!  Thank you for sharing your projects!  Please continue to do so.
