Digi Freebies

So people always ask where I look for digi freebies. I figured I’d share a few places I like to check!

My all-time favorite is – she always lists high quality, great freebies! However, as she’s gotten busy with other pursuits – she doesn’t update quite as much.

So now I have been checking It can be a little tricky to navigate and a lot of it is not stuff I am interested in, but there’s tons to dig through!

And while I am on the subject – Miss Tiina just posted TONS of freebies on her blog – there are fonts, bushes and quickpages galore! You can find her blog here:

Just busy these days.

We have something after school every day of the week.

Today a field trip with second grade – and of course it’s outside (I don’t *do* nature) and I got sun burnt. Yes, in November – I got sunburnt.

Last night I got chicken out of the freezer in the garage only to discover that it had not been shut all the way and half the freezer was melted. Yuck.

Then I found Adam in my bed…..and he’d peed in it! He NEVER does that!

This is my life these days! Hopefully some crafty things later on….I’ll be sure to put some digi freebies up for DSD this weekend!
