Well I survived my first day at the new part time job. It was pretty cool. I'm still working my last days at the gym so they are overlapping right now. I apologize to those I am ignoring right now! There just isn't enough time in the day!!!

Merry Christmas to everyone. I hope your holidays have been great.
Today's digital scrapbooking freebie contains 10 Christmas ornaments that you can fill any way you like.
Get the Ornament Templates here.
If you don't like the drop shadow on the ornaments you can delete it with your magic wand tool.
And here are a couple of examples of what you can do with these templates:

Sorry so late today. I was out last night and didn't get to schedule my post in advance like I usually do.
Today I am posting a template I made last year. It corresponds with the Holly freebie I offered last year.
That freebie is one of the few I discontinued from my site, but you can actually "lift' the individual holly off the template if you still want to use it.
Also the Holly Set and Holly Set Add On are the first themed kit I ever designed and they make use of this same holly pattern. Get them here.
Here is the Holly Template for you. Merry Christmas!

Last year at this time I introduced a Currier and Ives themed collection. It was very popular so I thought I would offer something similar this year.

It is getting closer and closer to Christmas. I'm working hard to keep up the holiday freebies, but work is hectic right now. We are trying to get all our paying clients taken care of before the gym closes.

So many of you have continued to show concern for me and for my situation. I appreciate your inquires into how I am doing! It is so comforting to know that complete strangers wish you well.! It makes the mean and deceitful people seem petty in comparison to those with kind hearts!
The latest update in the saga that is my life is not a good one. The company I have worked for since moving to Florida in 2002, Bally Total Fitness, declared bankruptcy. It announced on Wednesday that it would close 20 locations nationwide.
One of those 20 locations is the club where I work. On January 9, 2009 I will no longer have a job. And since my ex finace' isn't around anymore, and since he took 3/4 of my savings when he left, I find myself in a huge bind.
I have taught fitness classes for the last 10 years. Now it appears I will have to put that on hold so that I can get a job that pays full time. I have to pay my bills. Then, if I can fit a class or two a week into that schedule I will try to find an opening at another club.
This, on top of what has already happened is certainly a lot to have to bear. I am so grateful to all my friends (at work as well as here on the internet.) I know that I have people who are concerned about me and my welfare helping me to look for job openings in the area.
I am trying to be upbeat about this whole thing. Everyone says that I am better off without that worthless SOB I thought was my friend and my soulmate. He was only holding me back!!!
Today is the second and final part of the quick page series I started yesterday. Get the Christmas Greetings QP 2 right now.

Today I am paying homage to one of my all time favorite pastimes: reading!
Here is the I Love Books Template as your digital scrapbooking freebie for today.
So far this year (since February actually) I have read 15,905 pages and I am almost ready to add another 320 to the list.
Even with all the drama in my life I still managed to do some reading (although it did slow way down during those four months I was telling you guys about.) At least he didn't take away my reading!!!!
Here's to all the book lovers out there! Enjoy this template and please share your designs!

Here is part two of three in the Boo Boo Template Series. I was having a difficult time finding decent clip art of a broken leg and then I saw this teddy bear and knew I had to use it.

Today starts a three part Boo Boo Template Series that focuses on those little scraps we sometimes find ourselves having.

Before I start bombarding you with Christmas designs, I thought I would offer you a cool fish themed set. I like the color combination of this kit.
Get the first part of the Fish Bone Kit here and then come back tomorrow for the add on.
Many thanks to MegaDoodle Inspired for her CU tags and to Delicious Scraps for the bow I used.

Yes, it was coming for a while. Many thought he would be out in the off season, but NO ONE thought we would rehire the coach we fired to hire this guy we are firing now in the first place!
Five years after Paul Maurice was fired as head coach of the Carolina Hurricanes, he is rehired to lead the team out of their current slump. Go ahead and just shoot me now!
On an upbeat note, Ron Francis, Hockey Hall of Fame member and former Hurricanes star, will be the associate coach.
The good news is that Ron Francis is a cutie! LOL
Here is a wonderful template to use with those "afternoon teas" spent with the grandchildern or even your own child. It was inspired by a wonderful tea I went to at the request of one of my Pilates clients.

This morning I got a message from Efie at Efie's Blog telling me she had awarded me 2 awards. I was very excited! Thank you so much, Efie!
Here are the awards:
Since I just got the Treasured Friends Forever award the other day I will not pass it on again. I just want to thank Efie for giving it to me.
The Heart blog award will be passed on to: 1. Kyra at With a Russian/Dutch Heart because I can finally give her one she doesn't appear to already have gotten! She has been a wondefrul inspiration to me. She has offset the cruelty in my life by genuine kindness.
2. Wendy at Pretty Eyes' Creations gets this award as well. She has some really nice stuff on her site!
3. Idgie at Idgie's Heartsong...Scraps in the Key of Life also deserves this award. Her work is very unique.
