WOW...AUGUST 1ST!

hello everyone. can you believe it is august already? time feels like is going faster and faster as the days go by. i have been having a bit of a rough time with my anxiety....noise has become once again a pretty major issue for me. sadly we have acquired new neighbors up stairs...very noisy jerks actually. yes, i have turned into one of those crazy old lady neighbors that bangs on the ceiling with her cane. also, because they got a warning about the noise they have decided to play the "i'll show you" game....not good. i DO NOT play well with others LOL, especially if you are creeps!.  because of the added anxiety my fibro has decided to flare quite badly. pain, yes, but mostly the good old brain fog and being soooo very tired. i am sleeping A LOT! this is just not a good time for that. i am on a mission you see. and the mission is....to get my life down to the nitty gritty! with that comes purges and focus. out with what is bad for ME and focus on what is good for ME. it is all inclusive for me....mind, body and spirit. i hope to talk more about this as i take each step.

 today though, being a new month i have much to share with you about the ARTISTIC side of my life. i have taken on some new roles that, i think, really let me explore a hidden talent that has only been recently discovered....thanks to KAREN DIAMOND ♥. this new role, i think i have mentioned before is that of PRODUCT DESCRIPTION WRITER for digital artists. while i am still doing layouts for KAREN DIAMOND DESIGNS, AMY'S DESIGNS, JUST FOR FUN DESIGNS and MEMORY MUSE STUDIOS, i am also a description writer for the products of KAREN DIAMOND DESIGNS, THE SCRAPPY KAT, WENDY TUNISON DESIGNS and BEE TREE STUDIOS. it sounds like a huge amount when i type it all out LOL. this is definitely one reason for the whole nitty gritty crusade. so, it is a new month, what is going on with the artists i am "working" for. KELLY from JUST FOR FUN DESIGNS is coming back from a sports break so i look forward to seeing what she is up to. AMY of AMY'S DESIGNS has decided to take a much needed "family first" break....good for you amy! STEPHANIE from BEE TREE STUDIOS is working super hard to open her new store at SCRAPS N PIECES...WOOHOO! LYNDSEY from MEMORY MUSE STUDIOS has been super busy with some family events.

 so what do i have to show you? well, lets get to it! KAREN DIAMOND DESIGNS has a super awesome BITS N PIECES release called SEED SPITTING CONTEST. remember that each piece of BITS N PIECES are only $1 each.


here is what i did with this cute kit.


very cool right? and not a watermelon to be seen LOL. i love showing you how versatile kits can be. karen has another new release coming next week...a super cute kit with my favorite colors!.  she also just released something super fun that has so many possibilities.

OH HAPPY DAY

for the last 6 weeks i have had the amazing honor of participating in the SCRAPS N PIECES designer mentoring class. can i just say OH MY GUSH! i will honestly tell you there were tears involved! when you go into something thinking you know how to do something, well, watch out because you can easily find out you totally suck LOL. so anywho i learned so much amazing information from these amazing designers. i was lucky enough to have KAREN DIAMOND of KAREN DIAMOND DESIGNS as my mentor. she totally rocks as a teacher as well as a designer. so a great big THANK YOU KAREN!! a huge old hug and love goes out to lori and heidi and sue and everyone else who had a part in putting together this amazing adventure for so many of us. it was truly a MAJOR step in "finding MY life worth living". ♥

so today is the day that all of our hard work comes to fruition and we get to share it with the world!! and better yet? it is ALL FREE!!! WOOOOOOHOOO!  there are so many wonderful works of art from these amazing people that seriously, you really dont want to miss! and how, you might ask, do find all these lovelies? just head over to SCRAPS N PIECES and find the PHOTOSHOP CLASS GALLERY and start drooling and clicking because that is the only place right now to download. so let me show you what i was up to. now, be gentle and remember this is my first ever try at this stuff so dont expect too much HAHA.

so that is the preview for the whole bundle. i named my kit JUST because there is so much in my life and life in general that if we JUST concentrated of those things life would be so much better. i think i was able to show a little bit of my artsy side with this but my fun side too. we had time constraints on our work so there isnt everything i would have wanted in it but it has the main bits i think. the bundle preview is linked to my gallery to find the downloads. here is a closer look at the individual packs for you.



               




so? what do you think? i hope you head over to SCRAPS N PIECES to check out everyones hard work and get some goodies along the way.

here is the link again for you HERE and if you choose to work with my kit i would love to see your work. you can email me at katkreations.lifeworthliving@gmail.com or post it to my katkreations facebook page, i would love to see what you can do with it. enjoy ♥
