Here it is! (Better late than never right?)

WOW! RL (Real Life for those of you who HAVE lives outside of the internet LOL) has really been taking a toll on my online life!

DH was rushed to the hospital this week with chest pains and was pretty sick for the entire week (but thankfully seems to be fine, and pain free now) but THAT was a scare that I won't soon want to relive!

DS has started flag football, (and we are a HUGE football family) so between practices, games and "at home drills" LOL I've been on the move a bit more there.

Oldest DD is turning 16 in a few days and birthday plans are in high gear.

Youngest DD is heading out for her eighth grade trip to Washington D.C. soon so fundraising and planning have also hit a peak! LOL

Scrap Orchard is doing wonderfully, but with the addition of new designers (Bethany is just the first!) planning our National Scrapbook Day events and our new Surprise "So You Think You Can Design" event coming up, my designing and blogging has, unfortunately, been pushed WAY down on the daily priority list! SIGH... please forgive!

BUT I promised an add-on freebee to one of my most popular kits, and here it is! My Vintage Grunge kit has been one my personal favorites and now I've made a little add on mini kit for you! I'm putting it in my store,


So... here you go! Here is the link to my store "warehouse" (only viewable via this link) and it's free, so no coupon to use! Just check out with it!

*So sorry! This link has expired!*
The mini kit is still free with the purchase of my Vintage Grunge kit or you can purchase it separately in my store HERE

(just remember you have to be REGISTERED and LOGGED IN to the Scrap Orchard Store to check out with the free mini kit!)

Hey...I have another funny Hawaii story for you guys! (well, funny with a semi-tragic... for a lizard... ending) I just have to find the time to get the pictures on my computer and uploaded here...(yes...I said pictures! LOL) So stay tuned!

Thanks so much for this kit.

I am loving the orchard, and your stuff, and just wanted to tell you to keep up the good work!

I am glad that your husband is okay too!

Glad to hear hubby is ok and on the mend.
I posted my Fancy Pants l/o it's in the Orchard. The happiest place on earth. Vintage Grunge is on my wish list so I'll be sure to scoop the mini kit.

Thanks so much for the add-on! I too am loving the orchard. I just got back from two weeks in Hawaii - five nights right there on Oahu - and I am so glad to have your designs! I can't wait to get shopping! I am excited to hear your lizard story, we saw tons while we were there.
Thanks again.

Just wanted to say that I think your work is awesome and I'm so glad your hubby is doing better. Can't wait to hear the lizard tell the best stories, I usually end up laughing til I hurt, LOL. Thanks for the freebie, it's sooo appreciated!

As everyone else...I am very happy to hear that your DH is doing better. Also, while you are on the go with all the planning, fundraising, and everything else that has you busy, don't forget to take a moment for yourself...even if it's only 15 minutes here and there.*smiles*

ooops I forgot to add this to my previous comment: Thank You, Thank You, Thank You for the beautiful add-on.

Hey Shauna! Thanks for this great add-on, I love that kit! Hope things get a little easier for you VERY soon! And all that, while sleeping on an air mattress!

CCC said...

Thanks for the freebee Shauna!
And I'm so glad your husband is OK (I know what a scare that must have been).

Glad hubby is okay Shauna. I know ordinary life can really keep you busy. Being on the internet is the only vacation I get. lol We've missed you here but totally understand. I'm really lovin' Scrap Orchard and haven't even been to my other scrap hangout in forever! Hope DD has a happy 16th! What a wonderful age. Good luck to DS with flag football. DD will have an awesome time in D.C. I'm sure. I remember going there in 5th grade with my mom and dad (my uncle worked for the state department at the time)and it was great! Very cool place to be able to visit.
Remember to take some time for yourself Shauna! Thanks for the great freebee! Vintage Grunge is my next kit to purchase so this little add on is perfect. :)

Stefani said...

Wow! YOu have been busy, not that we expected anything different! I just keep checking here everyday, knowing you'll return eventually... I'm glad your husband is okay! How scary! Thanks for the freebie and I can't wait to here your new funny story, I've missed them so....

Sheila said...

Thanks so much for this lovely goodie! I really really like it!!!!!
I'm glad that your DH is OK and feeling better. I was SOOOO worried about you guys! (I've been there in the same circumstances 3 times with my DH, so I know how scarey and emotionally draining it is.)

Michelle said...

I too have rushed to the ER to meet my DH having chest pains. 4 hours & an EEG later the discharged him with no worries.??? I am just glad nothing was wrong.

Glad your DH is OK!

Thanks for the add-on. I've been checking your blog obsessivly since I read your post on scrap orchard.

P.S. I just realized that the photo LO on the home page of your blog is your daughter. (I guess I never read the caption!!) I thought it was you. Well, your daughter is adorable!
....I promise I'm not crazy LOL!

Tami said...

Glad to hear your husbands ok! You take care of whatever else you need to, we'll be here when you get here! Thanks!

Kathy said...

Hey, thanks for the add on - looks great and I can't wait to play with it soon.
I hear ya about busy IRL.
We are in full swing with track and golf plus they both play soccer 3-4 nights a week.
Glad your hubby is OK but what a scare.

Jeanann said...

this will be perfect with my vintage grunge kit.

thanks so much and glad hubby is on the mend.

Oh Shauna - I am glad your dh is ok! What a scary thing to go through. Thank you for the wonderful freebie!

Shannon said...

Thanks Shauna! Glad to hear your DH is doing fine - I would be going out of my mind with worry! Birthday plans are underway here as well - my baby will be 1 on Monday! I can't believe how fast the time goes! :)
