A Super Post- A Free Download, A Giveaway, and A Good Cause

I’d like to start with the good cause because, well, it’s the most exciting for me! My little sister SuiKim (pronounced “Sweet-Kim” without the “t”) and her husband Steve found out a couple of weeks ago that they have been chosen to adopt a little baby boy! I’m especially happy for SuiKim and Steve, who are just about the nicest, kindest couple of people around. They have spent most of their marriage wanting to have a child, and haven’t been as fortunate as many of us. If you’ve gone through this process, you know how heartbreaking and difficult it is. I’m so grateful that this opportunity has come  for them and wanted to share my joy with you.

sistersWithout going into my family history, I’ll just tell you that my family as suffered a bit of heartache the last few years (a story for another time). Because of this SuiKim and Steve don’t have many financial resources. I wanted to help the best way I know how. So the digital kit above, BABY MINE, will go on sale on Thursday, April 8th, at Design House Digital with all the proceeds going to help pay for the adoption. Thank you in advance for your kindness and generosity in helping me get this new little family started. I’ll be sure to post pictures of the little one when he arrives (camera will be waiting in hand!). (BTW, the pic on the side is my sister Yanni (right), SuiKim (center holding Yanni’s son Tad), and me).

If you don’t digital scrapbook, or just want to help, I’ve included a donation box here for you to send money to them.

Thanks again for all your help in this effort! I’m excited to see this little family get their first baby!

Okay, on to the next thing! A giveway. Yes, I know you like giveaways and I do too! Due to hit Design House Digital on Thursday is a new Color Kit. I’ve been getting emails about this, and FINALLY I got to it! Want to win it? All you have to do is leave me a little message in this post about your favorite hobby—Are you scrapbooker? Quilter? Avid crafter? Obsessive organizer? I love hearing about others’ obsessive need to create! I’m right there with you.

Here’s little peek at Color Kit 3. I’ll post the winner Thursday morning, bright and early so leave me some love sometime on Wednesday.

And finally, a little freebie for you! It’s a little party card download made from the Baby Mine kit. Use it for a birthday, baby shower, baby housewarming party, or (in my case) “Baby’s Here!” party. If you aren’t a “digital person,” no worries! This card is already positioned on an 8.5″ x 11″ paper so all you have to do is download and print. You may get a download window, or the image may appear in a new screen (if this happens just right click on it and SAVE IMAGE). It’s a high quality jpg that will print beautifully for you! Enjoy!

    I am so happy for your sister!

    Hobby = scrapbooking. I’m obsessed with it right now and it’s so nice to have something to do to fill my time.

    Other than scrapbooking my hobbies are cooking, reading, and stamping.

    Love the kits. What a great way to help your sister.

    What an adorable kit. I may have to buy it tomorrow. Current hobbies are paper crafting and raising little children. I’m starting to get into photography and the photoshop editing that goes along with it.

    Congratulations to your sister and her husband! Best wishes to them! As for my hobby…oh there are so many! Currently I’m tatting some things for mother’s day.

    Children truly are a gift and a blessing. Congrats to your sister. I will be back to buy the kit to help your sister. Hobby…..new to digital scrapbooking and loving it. I also love to sew and smock (kind of like embroidered hand stitch) little girl dresses. The new color kit looks awesome too. Thanks for the opportunity.

    I love the Baby Mine kit! I saw it mentioned on the Design House Digital FB page, and tried to buy it, not realizing that it doesn’t go on sale until tomorrow! Needless to say, I’ll be making my purchase TOMORROW.

    My “baby” boy is 14, and ever since he was born I’ve tried to scrapbook things about his life– but the traditional paper scrapbooking was near to impossible for me to accomplish because of all the time, space, mess, etc. involved. I’m new to digi-scrapping– I’ve only started in the last month– but I’m learning fast. I can use your beautiful kit to help me chronicle my son’s early years!

    Congrats to your sister, and kudos to you for coming up with a way to help them out!

    I’m so happy for your sister and her hubby!
    Adoption is such a great thing and you are so sweet
    to help her out!

    My favorite hobby is most definitely scrapbooking. I’m very hard core
    about it in a non-intrusive way to my friends and fam. I
    also love paper crafting an making things but I’ve really
    gotten into digi scrapping thanks to awesome designers like you!

    Thx for the opp to participate in the giveaway!

    I love anything related to art…cardmaking, scrapping, digitizing for embroidery, and have dabbled in designing. I have a commercial embroidery machine, and there aren’t enough hours in the day! I used to do tole and decorative painting years ago. I would have to say right now my main interest is any thing related to digital art.

    Definitely a digital scrapbooking hobbyist! Wish I had more time, more programs, more elements/kits. I would love to try some hybrid scrapping someday, but haven’t tried it yet!!

    Tell your sister CONGRATULATIONS!!! My Sister and Brother-in-law get to adopt a baby this month! It’s such a great time. I think I might buy the kit and give it to her (can I do that?)

  15. Leslie

    I’m so happy for SuiKim and Steve. That’s just awesome. And I didn’t realize Yanni has a kid. Wow. Good thing I semi-blog stalk you. 🙂 And the Baby Mine kit….I LOVE IT!!!!

    Is the digital kit BABY MINE still available? The link doesnt go anywhere anymore and I tried designhousedigital.com and it seems to not exist. I absolutely love this and would like to use it for my baby boys digital album. THanks!
