Taking Some Time Off from Digi-Designing

Weeh.. I've been working extra these past few days designing and making kits for Artscow. I already had my Christmas kit and just recently a Disney inspired digital scrapbooking kit. I've been rushing those kits for the last week hoping to get more sales at Artscow since they are having huge sale right now for all items. I have submitted my last kit for this month and I got so exhausted making the templates.

Now that 2 of my kits are in at Artscow once again, I have more time to learn more about tee tree oil for beauty treatment and some other stuff. I always have more time now to make other opps that are due and more time to go online (window) shopping.

After that, I'm set to make a Valentine's kit just in time for Feb. next year. I'll share some photos and links of my new kits at Artscow later.

Submitting to Web Directories

I remember when this blog was still new, I've tried to submit it to many web directories as much as I can hoping to increase my traffic and search engine positions. I think it helped since I got some hits coming from Google searches.

I'm also trying to optimize some of my blogs by using keywords on the title as I read on some seo blogs that it'll also help in the rankings.

Being Beautiful This Christmas

My goodness, Christmas is fast approaching and I'm actually getting excited over the various activities and parties that we'll be attending. I'm also planning and scheduling my visit to the salon for a hair spa soon. I hope I can have a clearer skin and no zits will come out. I hate to find an acne treatment the last minute.

I still need to buy new clothes that I'll wear for Christmas and other parties (hehe), plus more gifts for some kids.

Of Christmas Kit and more

Aside from trying to design a kit and make new templates for Artscow, I'm quite busy researching and reading more about colon cleanse that I can use in the future. I actually started a Christmas kit but with the looks of it, I'm not going to finish this up until this weekend as I'm busy with my online works.

I also noticed that all orders for Christmas stuff at Artscow are already in just to make in time for Christmas and my kit will be a little too late already. Sayang.... I wished I had more time so that I was able to finish it and make more profits out of it.

Scrapping Ideas

I scour the web when I want to look for digi-freebies and commercial use items for my scrapping stuff. I literally hop from one blog or site to another just to find that perfect kits that I can purchase or download. It's just like when you are looking for the most effective diet pill in the market, you need to look everywhere, ask your friends and even read reviews online.

The net is also full of scrapping ideas where I also get my my inspirations.

Sugar Hill Co.: My New FAVE Digi-Scrapping Kit Store

I was browsing for Medicare plan and trying to know which one best suits for me as I really need to address my health issues. After taking some time to do that I ended up browsing for new digital scrapbooking stores online and it lead me to Sugar Hill Company. Actually it was my friend Zanne who introduced me to this wonderful site where there are nice scrapping items both for personal and commercial use.I was hooked at their site during the NSD about a week ago and I was able to grab few CU products that I can use to create my own kits. My happiness was doubled when my dear friend Zanne gave me a $20 worth of shopping spree at Sugar Hill. I was able to buy lots of overlays and doodled items mostly from Miss Tiina. Actually, I'm starting to make another kit and I was happy that I already used the CU things that I bought already.

Printing Your Digital Scrapbooking Layouts

I've been scrapping since 2007 and it was only last year that I was able to have some of my digi layouts printed over at Artscow. It's always exciting and thrilling to see my hard labor of scrapping turned into book as these photobooks. Others have tried to print their layouts at their hp printers and have good results but I reckon it's less expensive to have them printed at Arstcow than to print it on your own.

I have about 12 photobooks already and still have pending projects. I hope I'll have enough time to finish them but since I'm also designing for artscow, my time is divided already.

Shopped at NSD!

Yey, I shopped. Instead of indulging on too much foods where I can take Lipofuze after that, I indulged myself with lots of CU (commercial used) goodies last (iNSD) inter National Scrapbooking Day last weekend.

My scrapper friends are buzzing me with lots of good scrapping stores that are having 50-70% off on their CU items so I was able to grab lots of tools that I can use to make digi kits. Actually, I already used some of them on my papers. Yey loved them!

Samples of my loots will follow soon. So, have you shopped as well?

Artscow Digital Scrapbooking Designer Kits Contest Result at Artscow

Teeheee.. my digital scrapbooking kit TRAVEL TIME entry won 1st place at Artscow Digital Scrapbooking Designer Kits B-Weekly Contest. It earned me $100, yey!

Now that the contest is finished, I can take out my stress by soaking in one of those jacuzzi tubs, that is if I own one. I can't help but to feel pressured when I'm joining the contest because there are times that I'm not sure if the customers like my design. Thankfully, I have won 1st- 3rd places every time I join.

Sadly, I don't have an entry for this week as I have no time to make some new designs because of my online works. I hope I can have extra time to make another kit so that I can join once again. I'm thanking Artscow for it is giving me another extra income, aside from the daily sales that I'm getting from templates that I made there.

Check out my FREE ARTSCOW TEMPLATES. All you need to do is put your photos there and it's ready to be printed at artscow.

Find Jobs Other Than Digital Scrapbooking and Designing

If you think that scrapping and designing is not your thing, then you need to find jobs that are really close to your heart. Nothing is great than doing what you love as it can give you more fulfillment and happiness. Online is a great source of work opportunities and you need to be aggressive and little patient in finding the work that will suit your talent and your qualifications. Patience will always pay off in the end.
