Sweet little great nephew

I received this card today in the mail from my niece with my wonderful little great nephew taking center stage.  Isn't he a doll!!!!!!!!!!!!!

20 Years of Marriage!

Well, it's official as of this past Wednesday.  My husband and I celebrated a milestone of 20 years!!!
For those of you who know me, my husband and I have a very unique relationship.  We are always totally honest with one another and always say what's on our minds.  No marriage is without trials, but because we are the way we are, I feel that that is why we have made it to 20 years.  We only knew each other a month before getting engaged.  And dated a mere 5 months before getting married.  I used to, well, I still do, tell him that he had to grab me while he could because he couldn't find anyone else crazy enough to marry him.  You see, he's a cross between Donald Trump and Dr. Phil, so I think you get the idea!!!  I love him dearly, when I'm not ready to kill him :) :)  and I can truly say without a doubt, regardless of everything, he is my best friend.

I'm not much of a movie goer, but when I saw this trailer I immediately thought of us.

2010 Christmas Releases

I just received photos of some of the 2010 Christmas product releases.  These look fantastic, and although I'm not able to get my hands on them until the final approval has been made, I'm very pleased with them in the rough!

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
Happy, and hopefully warm Friday wishes!

Remember playing leapfrog as a child?  My sister and I used to play for hours.  Of course, I was a little mischievous and pushed down a little harder than I was suppose to when I jumped over her.  She'd usually get me back some how!
This playful image was inspired by just that memory.  Remember?

Two adorable new singles

Just released are these two wonderful new singles.

"Share the Love"

"A Special Tree"

Both are perfect for the holiday season, but the sweet little, Share the Love, would be perfect for that special little girl in your life, whether it be for a t-shirt, embroidery for a blanket, birthday card or scrapbooking.  She's adorable, and perfect for any occasion!

The Awesome Power of a Wife's Love!

My sister sent this little diddy my way today, and I just wanted to share it.  I think that it is hilarious, and I know that being the type of person that I am, this is how I would totally react!

A very old man lay dying in his bed. In death's doorway, he suddenly
smelled the aroma of his favorite chocolate chip cookie wafting up the stairs.
He gathered his remaining strength and lifted himself from the bed.
Leaning against the wall, he slowly made his way out of the bedroom, 
and with even greater effort forced himself down the stairs, gripping the railing with both hands.
With labored breath, he leaned against the door frame, gazing into the
kitchen.. Were it not for death's agony, he would have thought himself
already in heaven.
There, spread out up on newspapers on the kitchen table were literally
hundreds of his favorite chocolate chip cookies.
Was it heaven? Or was it one final act of heroic love from his devoted
wife, seeing to it that he left this world a happy man?
Mustering one great final effort, he threw himself toward the table. The
aged and withered hand, shaking, made its way to a cookie at the edge of
the table, when he was suddenly smacked with a wooden spoon by his wife.
"Stay out of those," she said. "They're for the funeral."

Digital Stamps/Line drawings....

After releasing the new images, many were asking about having these produced in to line drawings for use in coloring books and as digital stamps.  Well, we've just got them added.  I hope you will enjoy them!!!

More will be available soon in an everyday category as well as Valentines, and many, many others.

Got your candy ready for all of the trick or treaters?  I have to admit.  I ate some of the chocolate that we planned on handing out, so I guess I'll be making a trip to the grocery store or Target this morning!  Here in our neighborhood culdesac, we always have a cook out and pull our candy together in one area for the kids.  It's always such a fun time visiting with everyone.
Hope that your Halloween will be a fun and safe one!!!!

Great Nephew!

Ok.  I had just had to post this wonderful little pic of my new great nephew.  Yes, that's my adorable 15 year old lovin' on him.  He couldn't wait to get his hands on him.  Probably more than me, if that is possible.  From the time he got there, he held him, and when he wasn't holding him he followed whoever had him around, hoping that they would give him up.
Zach just loves kids under the age of 5.  He helps with the 2-3 year olds at church every Sunday and he has a blast.  It's funny though, he doesn't care much for them after 5.  I asked him why that was.  He said that they get to be too silly and annoying.  Hmmmmmm.   Interesting thought!
This pic was taken a couple of weeks ago, and I'm already anxious to make the trip at Thanksgiving to love on him a little more!

New Digital Singles-Now available!

Lovin' on Santa was always so much fun when I visited him as a child.  I remember sitting on his lap, rattling off my want list, that usually included something that had to do with cowboys or art.  I remember getting my first real art set when I was about 10.  Filled with wonderful markers, pencils, watercolors and pastels.  Complete with an easel and a brand new art tablet.  Of course, that was after I stopped believing in Santa.  :) :)
Do you remember a special gift from your childhood?  Why not share!

This is one of many new digital singles that is now available at Sassy Cheryl's.  Lots of new Christmas and snowmen!

Santa's Elves and Christmas Bells~Are you ready?

Well, as most of you know, that even though I loath winter, Christmas is my favorite holiday.  I love drawing the Christmas/winter seasons as snowmen are one of my favorite subjects!  Snowmen are just so lovable.  Don't you think?  My love of snowmen goes all the way back to "Frosty the Snowman".  I used to love that cartoon at Christmas, and I have to admit, at almost 42 years of age, if I can catch that cartoon around the holiday season, I'm sitting right there in front of the television with a bowl of popcorn and soda watching wide eyed, just like a 5 year old child.
Do you have a favorite holiday cartoon?  Share them here.........

Happy Monday!

The world is but a canvas to the imagination!
What did you do this weekend? Well, I finished up a couple of custom drawings and began working on some new collections, cards and singles.  I was sketching away on the sun porch most of the day Saturday, enjoying the almost fall weather.  It's still been so warm here in Virginia.  I wish fall would get here!  It's been so nice in the morning, but the days have been more like summer, being in the 80's.  Could someone please send some autumn breezes my way!

As I was working on new collections, I dug in to my long list of requests from customers and one of the big ones, was children painting, so that is the collection that I'm working on right now.  This sweet little gal is just one of those images.  There are many more sketches waiting to come to life.  I'd love to hear your ideas as well.  So be sure to drop me a note or simply post a comment if you wish to add any of your thoughts.
Have a Happy Monday!

Honey Bees

Not sure when and how I'm going to release this little guy, but I had to share him with you. The bees are after his honey, and I'm not quite sure if he's afraid, or if he just doesn't want to share.
What do you think?

It Can't Be!

It Can't Be!

Well, even though we have a son, this was his expression yesterday evening, knowing that school started again this morning. He was filled with dread knowing that there was no more sleeping in until Saturday, and that he hadn't finished reading his summer reading book. I try to always remind him, that these are the easiest days of his life, and he'd better enjoy them. Life only gets more complicated and demanding as you get older. I'm waiting for him to finally realize that.

I have always loved Mary Engelbreit, as most of you know, and I love this piece from her book The Art and the Artist. She always seems to capture the thoughts of children and puts them in to such wonderful works of art. This one just happens to be perfect for the anxiety that our son was feeling last evening and will be feeling this morning. Oh well, life goes on!

Oh, and don't forget to get your digital classics. They'll be gone tomorrow!!

Sunday, September 6, 2009

Now don't throw a little temper tantrum! You knew it would happen one day. Tuesday, September 8th (midnight) will be the last chance you'll have to get the Digital classics. Come Wednesday morning they will all be gone. All of the sets are just $1 each, so get them while they're still available.

But don't be sad. There will be new and exciting things that will replace them. It's time to move on. Some if not all of those graphics are at least 8 years old. Wow. Has it really been that long?! Oh well, I hope that I've gotten better with age, like a good, fine, wine!

This is my idea of a perfect Labor Day! (from Mary Engelbreit's image It's Good to Be Queen)
It's quiet here in the Alger household this morning. Our son is still asleep, and hubby is out of town, so I'm enjoying a nice cup of coffee on the back porch in peace, except for the occasional bird or dog bark.
I got up for church this morning and realized that there was only one service today at 11. I normally help every Sunday at the preschool desk during the 9:15 service, but since there is only the late service today, I decided to stay at home and just watch it on TV. I do have that luxury.

The kids will be back at school on Tuesday, and with tomorrow being a holiday, I think that I will just spend the day relaxing and enjoying the rest of the holiday weekend. I don't actually think that it will turn out like ME's image, but it is something to shoot for, I guess.
Have a great Sunday!

New collections are here!!

The new collections are finally here! Lots of new stuff at Sassy Cheryl's this weekend. New Halloween, Christmas, snowmen and many, many fun singles like this one, The Bubble Blower.
I just love her. Don't you!?
I will be getting rid of many of the Digital Classics this week, so be sure to get them before they are gone. Also, all Websets are marked to just $10. Making room for new and improved sets.
Have a great weekend!!!
Oh, and there are two freebies for the month of September.

Halloween is coming. Are you ready? I'm not sure if I am, but I certainly know that I'm ready for cooler weather. Are you? We are having an end of summer cook out at my sisters this weekend. Oh, what fun. Pigging out on BBQ and all the good food that goes along with it. It should be a very relaxing time. My niece is going to having her first baby in September. Yes, that means I'm going to be a great Aunt. Oh well. I new it would happen eventually. I think that my age will hit me when our son gets married and I become a grandmother. SHOCK! If he is anything like his dad, he wouldn't get married until he's in his 30's.

This little Frankenstein image is from one of the new collections that will soon be appearing @ Sassy Cheryl's. It's been quite a while since I've created anything new, but I've been working behind the scenes on sketches and single images and ideas. I hope that once they debut, you'll be pleasantly surprised.

The joy of creating........if it were only so easy!

Don't you wish that grabbing some creativity was this easy. I'd lasso and pull some down every day.
Summer is filled with creative ideas, thoughts and moments, but it's hard to put them in to graphics as it is SUCH a busy time! I'm working on new and exciting stuff, that I'm sure you're going to love, so be on the look out for all new things coming September 8th.
