Some Updates, Pictures, An Award, & About Freebies

Well first of all, I am sorry for the lack of freebies and posting. I still haven't been feeling well. I've also been very busy spending alot of time in search of items that are worth investing in to help my designing. I've been searching for 3 days lol. Not to mention I have 3 collab kits I'm participating in that I'm trying to get done on top of my princess kit I've been talking about. And then on top of that, I need to run challenges in my stores which I have not started yet but need to. I feel very overwhelmed and unproductive. I haven't gotten anything done.

On another note, my foot is still sore. The other night at 4 in the morning, it started to hurt so I looked down and it was swollen like 4 times it's size. I had to go wake my mom up but I was in excruciating pain and it took me 5 minutes just to walk from my room to hers and then she helped me back lol. I feel disabled. But the swelling has gone down and the tattoo is starting to scab over so it's healing. I wish it would hurry up. I think it swelled so much because that day I walked on it alot and attempted wearing shoes and going shopping even though I'm not supposed to. It was a bad idea since I ended up taking my shoes off and walking around Target barefoot 5 minutes after we got there. I'll post more pictures from our tattoo party at the end of this entry.

Well, and now about freebies. I have decided that I will not be doing anymore Lil Furry Guys. Although there will be some in an upcoming freebie collab kit so look out for that. But now I need to decide on a new line of freebies to give. I was thinking something like metal charms everyday? Or like word art with a quote. Just for the next week, then next week I'll do some kind of new line. If anyone has any ideas or likes one of my ideas, let me know.

Also, Leaonna over at Busy Scrappin gave me a blog award. Now I have to pass it on to 7 people. Thanks Leaonna.

My sister's rose in the trinity symbol is pink but it looks red cause it had just got done. More people got tattoos but I haven't got them off my camera yet. Well, that's it for now.

The tattoos are gorgeous! Good luck with your foot. I think the charms one week & something else another is a great idea. Working on something different every few days you may feel more productive. Or take 1 day a week to make them all and just post 1 or 2 each day. Hope this helps a little!
