How was your Mother's day?

Goodmorning everybody!

I hope for a lot of mothers it was a marvellous day yesterday! But in fact it's a bit cracky, to have ONE day mothers should be treated all nice. It should be done throughout the whole year. In fact, I am stupified when I see there is almost EVERY day of the year a day of something! It is a bit overdone and too much. Well, we can pick out some days and leave the rest for what they are.
My weekend was a nice one, I can say. First Friday late we had the chat at Magickal forum, and hilarious as ever. We are quit a special bunch over there, you could say! All of different age, although the "hard core" mostly a bit older, but soooo young of spirit, amazing! We all have a different belief or religion and view of life. And still so much in common but what I like most of it, we aren't afraid to express our opinion and accept we are off different views and leave everybody in her value and respect that. It's a bit of an example of how the world could be. Only a pity, it seems only be possible in smaller groups, strange creatures, human beings!!

The rest of the weekend I tried to do some challenges, not accomplished a lot, but graduately I am and hope to have almost done all by the end of the month( we ALWAYS must have something to wish for, hahaha). I made another kit, but not as much as I wanted.. Hmmm, perhaps there will be even a day without a freebie this week! It's real hard to keep that up, or I should try to make some of the freebies a bit smaller or so. Why? I tend to make the kits a bit bigger now, so that takes more time and I am getting all the time a bit more critical about it! One way it is a good thing, I think, to keep critical about you work, but sometimes it is also getting out the speed of the designing. No solution for that yet LOL.

Oh, Saturday was an ever so nice day! I was just busy in the kitchen to make a pan of soup as the doorbell rang. So Jan went to the door and there was a guy with a little package. Not so strange, we often take them for our neighbours, so nothing strange. But then it seemed to be for ME! I received it from a friend far away and it was so nice to unpack it and see what was sent. There were some cd's in it, earrings, self made in a cute little pouch and a lovele bar of soap. I was so surprised by it and soooo touched, it made my day. Such surprises really sometimes spice your life, don;t you think?

So now a new week started, with still some holidays in store, we will have Whitsuntide( here it's called Pinksteren, or Pentecote) it's bringing another long weekend as the Mondya of that weekend is holiday too. And then it's done for a long time with big holidays until again Christmas. But let's not think about that, it;s too far away, first we hope to enjoy a beautiful summertime!
After my bit lazy weekend today there has to be done some stuff around here, oh, I do have a wish. If I could win a BIG prize in lottery, oh, I truly should take someone to do a lot of the housework, that would be great. Oh well, a person should always have something to wish for, it keeps your brain a bit alive I suppose LOL. Let's hop on now to the freebie. I know you all are waiting for that. It's a sweet kit I think, returning again a bit to the vintage style. I named it "Echo's from the Past".
Just like to say one thing more, I know there are true and loyal visitors who leave a comment every time they download or at least regurlarly. But to those who don;t I should like to say, please, acknowledge the fact that designers spend a lot of their time in making the freebies and you can grab them just like that. Shouldn't it be nice if at least you leave a little comment for them? I see the numder of downloads and it's great that people like your work, but the comments are in NO comparison to the number of downloads. I wonder why it is so hard to spend one or two minutes just to leave"thank you"or whatever on a blog? Please think about that. When you get a present from someone I suppose you say"thank you"too, isn;t it? Why should this be different?

Hmmm, I steamed off again a bit. Sometimes this gets to me and have to write it down. Not just for me, but this happens to a lot of designers who offer work for free!
And now enough of that, here is your freebie and enjoy it!

Hi, there,

Some people! LOL I don't blame you for feeling that way. Your designs are so nice!

I always have fun at the chats. It's like a "girls night out".

Thank you for this vintage-like kit. I can't wait to look inside. LOL
