« Gratitude Week – 5 days of Give Aways | Main | The I Need an i-Mac Texture Pack »

Moments Such as This… Make it all worthwhile

Happy Friday!

How was your week?  Mine was pretty fabulous…other than the days slipped by way too quickly! ‘sigh’  It seems like just yesterday I was posting last Friday’s texture. And here we are…a week later.

I suppose it’s true…times flies when you are having fun! Right.

I have a new texture to share today.  And then a few FAB tidbits.

Today’s texture is a BEAUTY! I call this one ‘peeling paint’! I mean, you seriously have to love the beauty of peeling paint.  I used it on the cup image, along with 2 textures from my ‘i need an iMac’ pack.

Here’s today’s Freebie.  List members, the link is on its way. 

If you are not on my list, you can sign up HERE.  Once you sign up, you will receive the link to download today’s freebie, as well as future freebies, directly to your inbox.


Okay, before I bid you adieu…

Amanda from Everyday Elements is hosting a Recipe Book Giveaway on her site. You can enter to win one of 2 Whole Kit & Caboodle Photoshop Recipe Book Packages.  The winner will be announced on Monday.  So there’s still time to enter.  :) Pop on over and check it out. 

Also, did you have a chance to check out my ‘I need an iMac’ texture pack?  Seriously, you gotta check it out!  It’s a steal.. 10 fabulous hand made textures for 10 bucks…  And wow, the results from the textures have been stunning. There’s still time to get in on the savings.  Click HERE for all the details. 

(just an update…i’m pretty close to getting that iMac… THANK YOU ALL for your support and sweet comments and input!)

Before I sign off…

I just have to share an email and an image from one of my readers.  This message makes all the long hours, the love, sweat and tears…completely worthwhile…  (okay, really…no blood…and only the odd tear….)  haha.. 

Thank you Jo, for allowing me to share this with my readers.

First here’s Jo’s beautiful letter.

Kim -

I  just want you to see how your teaching changes people's worlds.  Two or maybe 3 months ago this was a dream to me.  then i found you, bought photoshop and now look.  i'm pretty happy with these, considering all the training i've had is the skinny.  pretty darn good course if you ask me!  thanks so much for all the help you've been to me.  you have truly opened the door to the rest of my life because once i retire this is how i'm spending my time.  i'm so happy i found you.

thanks, kiss ben and have a great day,

jo NELSON  :)

Is that not the most touching letter?  Again, thank you Jo!  Truly …thank you!

And here’s one of the images Jo sent to me…using the new ‘lyrical’ texture from the ‘i need an iMac’ pack. I really, really… really LOVE this image, Jo.
