So in keeping with the gothic theme I have going here, I used "Funeral of Hearts" which is a collaboration between Yarrow and Chaos Priestess. There are some absolutely fabulous elements in there!!! If you'd like to take a turn at the tutorial you can find it here, and remember that I would love to see any results from my tuts *s*.

Almost forgot to share with you the link I received in my email today! Charlaine Harris has posted the first chapter of "Dead in the Family"!! I am so excited for May when the book publishes. If you'd like to take a peek you can find it here. Enjoy!!
So is there anyone out there other than me that isn't done with their Christmas shopping?! I feel so alone, lol. I actually thought that I'd have to wait til Thursday to shop, but our company decided to be nice and gift us with our paychecks a day early so I'm hitting the stores tomorrow to do ALL of my shopping. So you've been warned...outta the way woman on a mission!! Hell, I just sent out my Christmas cards yesterday. Just haven't been into the whole Christmas thing this year. We didn't get a tree again this year so the only decorating that I've done is downstairs I have a drop ceiling that I hang pine garland from that I decorate with white lights and gold/white/maroon goodies and I have a few of my vintage Santa's out. I have been playing Trans Siberian Orchestra, so that counts as Christmas carols right? Nevermind that I play them year round *s*. Still haven't heard if I'm working Christmas Day or not. I requested to just work the morning shift over a month ago, but they haven't decided yet. It would be nice to have the whole day off since I worked Turkey Day, but hey, can't be picky I guess. I finished up this tut when I got home today and I'm rather fond of it. Two using Yarrow's kits, she's gonna think I'm stalking her pretty soon. This kit is a revision of an older one and I think she did a fantastic job! It's Black No.1 and part of the kits that she has on sale right now at Digital Chaos. If you'd like to give it a try, you can find it here.

So I've been seeing a lot of sales come through my email, and I've done really good with not purchasing because it's well, Christmas, and you're supposed to buy for others not yourself. Then Yarrow sends through an unbelievable sale that I just couldn't resist. I have reasoned it out as a present to myself since I'm on the naughty list anyway lol. I adore her gothic kits, they always have fantastic elements. So while hubby is snoring loudly at the wee hours of the morning, it hits me that I have to do a tut named Villainess of Love. So...here it is!

Well, I'm absolutely freezing!!! I thought using Oopsie's terrific "Merland" kit would make the snow go away, but maybe I was expecting just a teensy bit too much. It did manage to distract me long enough that for a bit I didn't realize that it's COLD!!! You know how I'm such an element fan, and I really did enjoy the goodies in this one. If you'd like to check out the tut, you can find it here.

Yeah, I know, the four worst words that ever come out of my mouth, lol. For those that don't know, I offered tags for request for years, until this fall when the requests got way out of hand. I had several people requesting large amounts of tags (limit is five at a time) and I mean large!! Ten different people had requested 150+ tags at one time, but most averaged 30+. I did very much appreciate those that followed the rules and I tried to deliver tags in a timely manner, regardless of the less than polite emails that I would receive a day later wondering where their tags were. I do miss offering the tags...so...what was I thinking you may ask? I thought about either opening the requests again and giving it one more go...or doing an always list with a cap limit. Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think. If enough people show interest, I'll go ahead and give it a whirl!!

So I'm still in the Twilight mood! I'm reading blogs where some have already seen it three and fours times, well grrrr. So I have to indulge myself in more tags, which makes me stalk Cora again. This time I used "The Saga - The Renewal", really great papers I may add! If you'd like to give this tut a spin, you can find it here.

It's either finish putting up Christmas decorations or tag...gee that's a rough decision, lol. So I decided that Jo is going to be the lucky one that I stalk!! I had a lot of fun creating these, did one right after the other. She has great kits, and they are so easy to work with. From top to bottom, the kits are "Pink Winter", "Bad Attitude", and "Winter Chill". You can find the links to her stores on her blog here, because you'll definately want to add to your collection, and they do come in both full and tagger size!!

Well I still haven't see "New Moon" yet *pout* Everytime I make plans something just gets in the way and I can't go *sigh* I just have to stalk Cora in the meantime for Twilight kits, lol. I used "Happily Ever After" which is part of The Saga Series. She put alot of thought into each of these kits and it really shows. If you'd like to try this tut (it's an easy one) you can find it here.

So....shhhh...don't tell Oopsie I'm stalking her, lol. I used "Mi Amor" for this tag. It's a full size kit, but it resized down beautifully so I was thrilled. It's a quick tut to do, some days you just need those =) If you'd like to give it a try, you can find it here.

Did ya know that Oopsie opened her own store? If not, you need to stop by and check it out, she has lots of sales going on right now. That's where I got the kit "First Bite" to do this tag. I had intended this to be a vamp tag, but got a little side tracked, but I'm very pleased with how it turned out. I simply love the elements that she included!!

Well, Turkey Day came and gone and I'm still sick?! Was your day at least eventful? I left work at 4 and hubby's aunt was having a turkey dinner at her house for a few of us, and we all know I'm not turning down turkey! We did have a really nice time, so if you are reading this Sandy, thank you *smile*. I woke up Friday with a very raspy voice (which is a regular occurrence once I get a cold) so I new it was going to be a long day. By the end of the day, voice was gone, and I was sad. I was even sadder on Saturday when I couldn't even squeak! Sunday and Monday were about the same, but I did get to nap quite a bit. So I went back to work today sounding just like I did on Friday =( The good news is...I may get to see "New Moon" tomorrow!!! I'm so excited!!! My gf has some time off work that she needed to use, so if all goes well, we're going tomorrow so keep your fingers crossed. To celebrate, I think I'm going to go on a Twilight Saga obsession, lol. I'm hittin' up Cora's "The Saga" series for some tuts, so keep your little eyeballs peeled. First up is Bella, and you can find it here.
