Hello Newsletter Subscribers,

I apologize for posting this so late.  I had the newsletter ready with the exception of this part where I tell you about me week.  I usually write this part at the last minute because I sometimes add and subtract the original draft.  I should have done this on Friday night like I usually do, but didn’t get to it and figured that I would do this on Saturday morning.  Well, those of you who suffer from migraine headaches will be able to relate with me on this one.  I woke up to a throbbing beat in my head.  My sinuses hurt…I was in pain.  I was also upset because yesterday was the day that I was supposed to meet with my group of scrapbooking ladies at Michael’s.  So, I took my medication…and my own home remedy of coffee ….the leaded stuff that I normally don’t drink…and a couple of drops of peppermint extract and through it down the hatch.  Now, people who don’t know me always wonder about me after I have had this concoction.  I mean, I love to talk….but the coffee makes me TALK…and TALK….no stop….no matter how I am feeling.  My poor hubby is not a morning person….and he had to put up with me and my non-stopping mouth yesterday.  But, it did its trick and I was able to attend the crop that I was looking forward to.  However, in the process, I forgot to send off this newsletter.   So, I apologize once again for it being late….but I hope that you will enjoy the files this week.  Have a wonderful week!

Oh yeah…until the next letter…HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!

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:  Nothing new this week.

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:  Nothing new this week.
