Water Leak, Cuteness, Quality Control and a Freebie

Its been quite the week for water leaking in my life this week.  Sunday night my kids and I were at my bf’s and when we went to the basement to play pool we discovered a large water stain and peeling paint in his ceiling-of course he was leaving town at 5AM the next day.  So…Monday morning I called the contractors I work with, they cut a hole in his ceiling-no it wasn’t the shower or toilet plumbing-then they discovered it was the fridge.   Fridge guy comes in, yup its the water line to the fridge and a coupler-so all in all a fairly simple and inexpensive fix.

Then yesterday afternoon my daughter calls me at work, there is water all over the pantry floor.  I asked her to check to see if it leaked through the ceiling, if it was coming from the bathroom in the adjacent room.  No and no. Well, the pantry was originally built for a washer and dryer and the previous owners had custom shelving put in-looks nice and is so handy to have that space.  Long story short-I got home and had to take the left side shelf completely out-move everything off the back left shelf and open the box where the taps were hidden for the washer dryer hook-up.  Sure enough they were dripping.  Not sure how or why that happened-perhaps a washer or something in the taps but all seems dry and good this morning.  Which is good because Alex and Savannah had just cleaned up the house because someone has company coming over Saturday afternoon.  LOL

So it was another easy and inexpensive repair but the kitchen and dinning room look like a bomb went off.  Spices and groceries and pots and pans, along with food processors all over the place.  At least all of the mess is a clean mess and a great excuse to clean out the pantry.  So after all that… I went and found some cuteness … what do you think?  Aren’t they adorable?

Born on December 23rd…they are five weeks old and yes purebred Siamese.  This is what happens when one child has a male cat, and one a female and they wait to get them fixed because… well, they are only a year old and too young for that sort of thing….lol.  Yes, they are both getting fixed now!

Oh before I forget, I have added this graphic to my description for some of my products in the store to let you know that they have been tested for quality control.  I want to make sure I offer products that you can use in your printed layouts as well as your digital ones.  When you see this symbol you will know I have tested the product for stray pixels, jagged edges, smooth lines, gamut warnings, drop shadows and trimmed the product.  Not all the products have been tested however ALL CU products will be and most new kits will be as well.  Just look for the symbol.

Quality Control and your Freebie

As many of you know I have been taking Photoshop classes, tying to learn new techniques and ways of doing things.  I was in for a HUGE surprise yesterday when I was working with a few  popular designers kit learning about Quality Control.  Now everyone knows you should trim your elements, and clean up the lines, not have stray pixels but what happens when you have this amazing kit and you have all these beautiful layouts and you go to print it?  Now I don’t print mine I have my layouts on my laptop and ipad but how would you feel if you spent time and money working on a photo book and the book came back with the colours not what you expected or worse yet random and very noticeably different colours?  I wouldn’t be happy I know that.  So for that reason, I’m going to make sure that the kits going into the store will be quality controlled.  You’ll know because it will tell you that the kits have been QC’d.  I’ll even make up a seal for those kits.  I just want to make sure that if your buying my products, your getting quality.

Besides that, I have a busy day.  I have a mole on my eyebrow that I need to see a surgeon about, lots to do at the office and lots to do for my blog and store so I hope you enjoy the freebie today as I better get myself busy and to work.

Bragging Rights & a Freebie

I have to brag… just a little.  My son Marc is 21 and I think okay at pool.  Me on the other hand am awful yet somehow last night I managed to beat him twice.  Of course I had to post to Facebook that he played worse than a girl… and was beaten twice at pool by his Mom.  We had a nice family dinner and quiet evening together.  Its so nice when the kids get to this age… they start to become your friends too…not just your children.

So I’ll be busy the next few days working on a few things, uploading new Kristi W templates to the store, along with more Josy Carson templates.  I’m putting the final touches on a Blog Hop Mini Kit and a the March Kit to go with the This Year Series.  Also working on a few more doodle packs and element packs.  Lets see how much I can get done in the next few days.  In the mean time, please enjoy today’s freebie.
