A new kit!

FOR TODAY... april 12, 2010

outside my window... dark and raining cats and dogs!
i am thankful for... cyber friends!
I am wearing... my pj's.
noticing that... is way too hot for april.
i am currently reading... "the swan thieves" by elizabeth kostova.
on my mind... my 15 year old is already driving!
pondering these words... "one must from time to time attempt things that are beyond one's capacity" -auguste renoir-
from the kitchen... a big pot of coffee!
around the house... evidence of life and fun during the weekend - lots of things to be done but i'm ok with that.
one of my favorite things... i'm a list maker.  notepads are a must.
i'm creating... slightly better elements for my kits and being patient about the learning process.... 
a few plans for the rest of the week... get some new plants for the backyard, blog-hopping to catch up with what friends are up to & stay on spring cleaning mode... 
from my lens... another picture from my spring break vacation:

full moon at the beach

phew! i finally finished a kit i've been working on for some time & with so many things i kept pushing it aside but i definitely feel better about it than i did with my first one. the color palette is subdued earth tones which i find can be useful for various themes and truth is i tend to shy away from bright colors a bit so these feel more "me'.

many of you have asked me if i'm planning to become a designer and all i can say now is that creating kits is a whole new layer in the creative process for me - it is still out of my comfort zone and i am taking baby steps towards acquiring more experience in order to offer more solid, reliable & quality products. for the time being, i'm happy digi-scrapping and creating a few freebies here and there for you to enjoy. your comments are always important and serve as a measure and an indicator of how i'm doing and what things are well received and which ones are not. i guess, time will tell.

let me tell you, designing new stuff is fun but it is also time-consuming & hard work. trying it has given me an immense amount of renewed respect for all of those genuinely experienced designers out there who time after time can manage to inspire us with their creativity and offer quality products. hats off to you guys!!

i can't wait to read your opinions & thoughts on this kit. remember to leave me a link to your creations so that i can see how you use it and so that i can leave you some love too!
