Winged Heart Ohio CT Call

Hello to my sister scrappers! Hope you're having a great weekend!

Even though I cannot be truly prolific because of my health issues, I feel that it is time for me to have a couple people join my creative team. Right now it is just my friend, Pat (of "A Rose for Patricia" fame!!), and she needs some company!! LOL

The requirements are really simple...you would receive all of my kits, paper packs, etc. without charge and would be asked, in return, to create a minimum of three layouts from each kit/pack and post them in three on-line galleries. In addition, I would ask that you create at least one layout from each freebie offered (that is not a sampler of a kit) and also post them in your three on-line galleries. I am asking that, if chosen, you agree to sign on for a six month period of time.

To be considered, please email me at wingedheartohio@gmail.com and tell me a bit about yourself, your scrapbooking style, and why you want to join my team. Also, please include links to any online galleries that you currently have. Don't worry if you are just a beginner, as I am definitely a beginner designer!! LOL We will learn together. The most important thing to me is that our styles work well together and you have good communication skills. A sense of humor is definitely a plus!!! HA HA HA

Sooo....wanna come out and play???

Thank you!

I just wanted to give a big "thank you" to all of you who have left wonderful comments here, on 4-Shared, and on the sites where I left notice of "A Rose for Patricia." Not just the comments on my kit (which I TRULY appreciate), but especially for those wishing me well. JennyMary, thank you for your very kind comment and you are right, I am at the end of my rope. I'm hanging on to that knot but it is hard! Christine, I'm really glad you found my new web home. It saddened me to have to take down my old web site but I just couldn't keep it up the way I wanted to. It became more frustrating than it did satisfying. I'm still writing poetry and will share it here as I did on the web site. Other than that, this blog really does serve the purpose and is much easier to maintain. I really like the new header I created in the wee hours of the morning yesterday when I couldn't sleep.

Being creative really is my life-blood right now. It's not just that I want to create, but that I HAVE to! I certainly have much to learn when it comes to designing digital scrapbooking stuff, but with all of your help, encouragement and feedback, I'll keep learning and sharing. What a wonderful world we live in where we can meet wonderful people all over the world with just a few keystrokes on a keyboard!

Again, thanks to all of you for taking this journey with me, where ever it leads. You enrich my life! Blessings to each and every one of you!

A Rose for Patricia Freebie Kit Re-Issued

Hi everyone. I had a request for a prior kit I released as a freebie...A Rose for Patricia. So...I thought I would post it for all of you in case you missed it! I really like this kit (I guess it's okay to say I really like something I created LOL LOL) Here's the preview (as always, click on the picture for a larger view):

You can get it here: A Rose for Patricia. The password is "patsrose" without the quotes.

Enjoy and come back soon for my next kit, "Beloved."


Update on Doctor's Visit

Well, it looks as if I'm going to have to have another major procedure done on my chest as my sternum is still unstable and "sinking." I'm just kind of beside myself so I would truly appreciate all of your prayers and good thoughts. It's such a struggle...

Well!!! I'm a winner...and loser!!! LOL

Hi everyone. Sorry, I've meen MIA, but my health has once again slowed me down. Boo boo. That's the loser part of this post. LOL Really, everything will be okay but I was admitted to the hospital for a day of testing after going to the ER with chest pain. I had a stress test which showed that my heart is doing okay...no new blockages or anything. Yipee! They did, however, find some abnormalities in my left breast so I have to get that checked out. I'm hopeful it will just be some changes from the chest reconstruction I had as the muscle flap they created to go over my sternum was from left to right. I go Monday to the Cleveland Clinic to have my chest looked at so I'm going to ask the doctor what he thinks.

Now, for the winning! Have you visited the blog of Kim B (Kim B. Designs)? She's my kind of gal...ornery as heck, extremely talented, and a bit twisted! I have enjoyed her blog and her fabulous freebies for some time now. Well, she had a name-that-kit contest for her newest kit which features pretty twisted ribbons and a great "swirly" design. I suggested "Pretty Twisted," and her son, Nathan, picked my entry!! So, I won the kit! I'm so excited. What a nice surprise to come home to. Make sure you go visit Kim and tell her I sent 'ya!

That's it for now, but check back soon. I'm in the middle of creating my newest kit, "Beloved." It's features Victorian ephemera and lovely roses. It all started with a photograph of the roses in front of my apartment building. Of course, there'll be freebies, too! Here's a preview of one of the papers (click on it for a larger view):

Hope all of you are doing great and also (hint...hint) hope to hear from you soon!

Blessings to all,
Winged Heart

Freebie Quick Pages & Kit for Sale!!

Hello everyone...hope you are all having just a wonderful weekend! I haven't been doing anything but sitting at the computer.

As I had mentioned in a previous post, I am going to start selling a few of my creations to help with my medical costs. Well....drumroll please....I have finished my very first kit for sale. TaDa!!! It's called Floral Beauty.

All papers and elements are created at 300 dpi so they will re-size easily without loss of quality.

The bold colors include dark red, medium red, dark pink, fuscia, blue, dark green, and orange -- plus a bit of white, gold and silver! You will be able to create MANY great pages using this kit!
