Hello friends, it’s been a while! For those of you don’t know, I have not been posting because I had a major (catastrophic) failure of the hard drive where all my design work was. We’re still in limbo with whether or not the data can be saved, and until then, I am on hold.
Also, we had some life changes, and I am now homeschooling both of my children. It is very time consuming and leaves little time for new design. I have resigned myself to this current situation – my kids HAVE to come first.
Meanwhile, one of my freebie posts has totally exploded – it’s the Adventure Time Freebie. Lots of people are really happy to find it since, like me, they couldn’t find a commercial product on the market. People have been overwhelmingly gracious, and I feel like I have made this world a better place.
One question I get asked A LOT is what kind of software to use to do design. I have the Adobe programs, but not everyone can afford these. I just found this great article on 12 FREE alternatives to the Adobe suite, and I thought I would pass it along.
FreeVector.com is a really fantastic resource for backgrounds, graphics and patterns. This article is the bomb!
Check out this blog’s link party for all things “Hunger Games” You know the premiere is right around the corner, and everyone is so excited! The cool thing about Hunger Games is that the series really appeals to both boys and girls, young and old. It’s a really well written series.
Of course, I’ve had my Hunger Games printable since last summer when we had my son’s party, so I am listed too.
Oh, and don’t worry, I didn’t forget about the Glee printable – we’ve had some technical difficulties as of late. It should be posted by the end of the day – plenty of time before the 2nd half of the season!
I am getting ready for my son’s 10th birthday, and this year we are NOT having it at home. For the first time in a LONG TIME, we are opting for a package birthday party at a local place called TeamWorks. It’s a pretty awesome place, and the kids get to jump around in a bouncy house, then play video games, eat pizza and play other team-games like dodge ball. Easier for me – no cleanup to worry about.
One of Luke’s favorite shows is Adventure Time on Cartoon Network, which goes awesome with a fun place like TeamWorks! I am passing along this package of printables that I whipped up as a freebie to you, since Cartoon Network has not come out with their own party themed stuff. But if you’re a fan, I hope you are thoroughly JAZZED by this freebie!

One seriously awesome follower on Facebook, Sommer, shared these beautiful printables with me last week. HOW SWEET! So, I’m passing them along. She used them to put onto party hats that she made from construction paper. They are most definitely multi-purpose. Here’s a peek…
I also want to share with you some pretty awesome resources I found while compiling stuff for the party.
