Will Be Back Soon

Wow, I looked to see how long it has been and it has been a very long time since I posted anything. I have been busy but will most likely continue to post in a few weeks. Just remember, you can get items by clicking on the links to the right. Going into the getbentanon folder and using the getbent password will reveal a few other items that may interest you as well. Than again, maybe not. Ok. I hope all is well with you all and check back in a few weeks!

New Addition to Our Family!!!

Well, I again have been sick. Seems that I can't get a break sometimes...but that comes with the territory I guess. So, even though my head was swimming every time I stood up we went to the pound and my little one picked out the new addition to our family! His name is Bear. Although the way he lounges around I'm starting to think that we should have named him Lump. He is supposed to be a Beagle Husky mix. I chuckled at that one. Don't really see the husky in him but only time will tell. So, now here is the real kicker! A month or so before I found out I was pregnant with my little girl we adopted our little kittens, Renfield and Vladimir from the pound. Well ... hey, sometimes lightening does strike twice! Hope all is well and have a great weekend.

Sorry, haven't been on for the past couple of days. Been extremely busy with the holidays so close. I haven't even gone shopping for the little one!!! I have taken the next two days off from work so I will hopefully get what I need for her, finish decorating the tree, etc..... Today is a little dress up for a Gingerbread "person". If you are interested you can get it HERE. I forgot to put the TOU in the zip file so please use them as you want. Until then, peace out, be safe and enjoy!!!

Christmas Template

Ok so here is a Christmas Template that I was playing around with. Should I be saving it in a different format? Or is the png still ok to do when it's a template of sorts? If interested you can get the Christmas Template #1 by clicking on the link. I really need to get a little more creative. I either put to much items on something or not enough. I need to get an even medium. So in the next couple of days I will be posting odds and ends of things to see what your suggestions are. I would also like to say Thank You to the people out there that said that my "work" isn't up to par and that it's not worth downloading, etc etc. Because of you, I now have more umphf to try different things and expand a little. I'm not the type to have people try and push me down and stay laying down. No no, that only makes me stronger and makes me push back even harder - I'm stubborn that way. So I will be doing more, learning more and hopefully posting more. And hopefully I will get better and better. Oh, and not to worry ... When I could be considered as a "real digital designer" I don't plan on EVER charging for anything that I post on this blog. Again, have a great day!

Candy Cane Alpha

Well I finally learned how to put the background that I want on letters. I found the book that I bought a while ago. Forgot that I had it until I stumbled upon it in the "computer room." I have quotes on that because the room is more like a very large junk drawer. Everything that doesn't have a place, but I want to keep, goes in that room. It was more simple than I expected. I thought it was going to be time consuming and aggravating to do. So today will be some Candy Cane Alphabets and you can get them HERE. I do find it amazing that there are people out there that are trying to charge anywhere between $.99 - $2.99 for something like this. It's a wonder. Don't get me wrong, there are some really amazing work out there for sale that is worth purchasing [like the one I bought for Halloween shown in a previous post - and you should check out her work! Gorgeous!]. But … come on now! For what I'm posting today? They should give that as a Freebie. Anyways, if you would like me to make you up some letters with a background that you have just let me know and I will try and do it for you. It will be good practice for me. I’m the type of person that if I don’t do things repetitively I tend to forget. Ok, so hope you enjoy them and can use them. Enjoy your Tuesday! Peace Out!

Christmas Kit

I just finished a Christmas Kit which I hope you all like. I've actually been working on some of the items for a while now and think they didn't come out half bad. Especially since I don't have a clue as to what the hell I'm doing half the time. In either case, I think I would be better off hand drawing something and then scanning it as opposed to using the mouse. Anyways, if interested, you can download the Christmas Kit by clicking on the link. Let me know what you think. If you don't have any constructive criticism please do me a favor and look to the top right hand side of your browser...see that pretty red X? Click it. Oh, and be sure to read the TOU! I hope you all have a great weekend! Stay safe and enjoy life!

Free To Use As You Please!

Hi all. These are some of the items that I made up while in the learning process. Consider this an open invitation to use them as you see fit. Use them commercially; make cards; make letterhead; fliers; promotional items; or print them out and throw darts at them if you want!!! Hey, you can even say that YOU made them! Yes, yes, claim them as your own if you want! If you can make some $$$ using them then by all means DO SO! Oh, and if you do make some $$$ using them throw some my way! Just a suggestion - not mandatory if you use them! May not be the best [still in the learning phase] but hey, that's what the learning process is all about! you can get the Autumn Elements and Frames, Bow Wow, Throw Me a Bone and the Purple Raspberry by clicking on the links. Ok, for those of you that have a business, or something in that line, or are new to this blog or just don't have any common sense, if you see something on this blog that is without a doubt NOT created by me please do not use them commercially as these items are for learning purposes only. I guess I will have to post another disclaimer so I don't have to keep explaining myself! Oh, by the way, anger is not one of my personal traits although I do like a good debate every once in a while. Anger takes away to much of what type of person you truly are or can be. Sarcasm IS a personal trait of mine :P --- I do find it interesting that Anon had no real response to my earlier post except to say she would use the items and call them her own. So enough of the negativity! This will be the last response any Anon's [great acronym don't you think?] will get from me. Anywho! I'll post some more "Free to Use" items shortly. Have fun and enjoy!

Pregnancy and Infant Loss

I have had several requests for Pregnancy and Infant Loss and this is the kit that I have been trying to make but have been having a really difficult time with. I have been blessed with 2 beautiful kids and 2 beautiful grand kids and cannot think how it would be if I lost one of them. I searched the web to get some ideas and always stopped at some sites and started reading ... In less than a second I would start crying and feeling extremely saddened. So I apologize if this isn't what the requesters had in mind but I can't seem to bring myself to work on these items for more than 10 minutes at a time before I would start thinking about loosing one of the children in my family. But if you can use them, you can get the Pregnancy and Infant Loss items HERE.. I pray that no one has to go through this and if you have my heart and prayers are for your loss.

Until I write again! Enjoy your day!!!

Breast Cancer I of II

Hi-dee-ho! Hope everyone is having a terrific Tuesday! Today will be part I of II of the Breast Cancer Awareness items. I went through a scare several months back. Had the mammogram twice and then had the ultrasound [is that what you call it?] and fortunately everything came back great! False alarm! Scared the crap out of me though. Anywho, here is PART I of the Breast Cancer Awareness kit. Pet Peeve: I went to get my license plates for my car and was asked if I wanted to get a license plate for Breast Cancer. It went for something like $48. Out of curiosity I asked how much actually went to the funding or research of Breast Cancer. Do you know it was something like $2!!! A normal license plate would have cost me approx. $30 - so take the $2 out that went towards the BC research ... the rest of the money went into making the plates! Uhm...I'm not a mathematician or anything...but wouldn't it make more sense if I was to get a normal plate and donated the $16 as opposed to just the $2? I see so many things like this. I know it's good for awareness and all ... but ... come on couldn't a bit more of the money go to the cause?!?!?! Ok, enough of my B&C'ing. Besides it's just one of my thoughts gone wild! Enjoy enjoy enjoy!
