Today at LyllahRaven Designs

31 May

Today at LyllahRaven designs, we are busily working on some graphics for a project my husband and his best friend have been doing for a few months now. It’s called “Geekin’ Podcast”. They cover everything geek from comic books to movies, video games to table top RPG’s a d everything in between. I’m having a lot of fun with it, and may end up releasing a mini kit that follows the same theme.
Anyone up for a comic book themed freebie? Let us know on

Rollercoaster week

26 May

This week has been full of ups and downs. Some more extreme than others.

We live way out in the woods, 20 minutes or so from the nearest… Well anything really. And way out here, in the middle of no where, there are not many options for Internet. A few tiny companies, none of which are that great of an option. My father in law jokes that the files and information for our Internet is ran back and forth on the backs of squirrels and raccoons. Sometimes it seems that way. This week, it has been even worse than that. Our friendly neighborhood ISP came out to check what the problem was, and decided that we have to many trees. In the middle of the woods. Imagine that. So we are on the search for a new raccoon.. Er.. ISP.

Now in the midst of this frustration, I have good news! I am now a part of “Ponytails Designs” creative team! I am beyond excited about this opportunity.

The night before I found out about getting to be on the creative team, my cousin and his wife had a scheduling conflict and asked me and my husband to watch their 3 kids for the afternoon, take them to their baseball game and then on to another family members house where they would be staying for the weekend. Long story short, the other family member wasn’t there and hasn’t been able to be reached so we are currently on day 4 of “surprise babysitting”. This brings our grand total of people under the age of 9 in our home to 8. 8 under 9. It’s amazing I still have hair…

So hopefully soon things will calm down. Life will go back to normal. We will have Internet. And I can fully enjoy being the newest member of a creative team!! Woohoo!!!

Today’s SpeedScrap challenge at “Stuff to Scrap”

20 May

brothersThere was another speed scrap challenge today at Stuff To Scrap. I can’t pass up a fun challenge, so of course I had to participate. I decided to use the kit that I’m still addicted to, “A Noise With Dirt On It” by Ponytails Designs.

The weather is getting ugly here, we had several tornado’s touch down yesterday and there is one on the ground south of here now. The storm system is starting to interfere with our internet, so I’m going to have to cut this post short… But here is the layout I made today. I hope you enjoy it!

Speed scrap Challenge

18 May

Today I participated in a speed scrap challenge at Stuff To Scrap. I had a lot of fun, learned a new technique and got to use pieces from “A Noise with Dirt on it” by Ponytails Designs again. The more I use this kit, the more I love it! I’m really happy with how this lay out turned out. I will definitely be using this technique more in the near future!

I am also working on a little logo for myself, that I could possibly use on kit previews in the future. I am not confident enough with my creation of elements yet to publish a set of freebies, but maybe by the July blog train, I will be able to use it.Xander
