just a tad busy...

what can i say, life is busy and although i seem to do alot, there just aint that many hours in a typical day to do it all. i've caught up for the time being...well that is until tomorrow...lol

since becoming a Scrap Girl Designer, i have created exclusive kits that for the most part you won't find in any of my other stores and if you find something a tad similar it will have been added to for Scrap Girls.

and i have loved every minute of it!

except the fact that i've been quite sick for just over a week now where i could barely function. but like all good things time has helped and although i am not 100% better, i am clearer in my thoughts and able to function.

oh btw...i have a new freebie coming out with this weeks newsletter. yes!!!!!
finally i managed to create a gorgeous little freebie that i know you will all love and i may create something else to go with it for you all.

you don't really want to miss out on this gorgeous gift from me so if you've come by my blog and read down this far and perhaps you like to create online or digi scrap etc...sign up for my newsletter and you'll get this when i send it out with the next newsletter at the end of the week.

it really is as simple as that.

well guys it's late here, in fact it's the next day kinda late here so i'm shutting down and heading to bed.

until next time...look for all the positive in your life despite where you are mentally. you may have to work at it but it's there...yep...all that good and happy stuff, all that positive and loving goodness...it's there, i promise you!

I'm a Scrap Girl Designer...

Woohoo, it's now official and I am so happy to announce that geekgirl designs is now designing for Scrap Girls. I am so grateful and thankful to Angie (owner of Scrap Girls) for asking me to apply and then accepting my creative designs.

It is one thing to be a designer, it is another to be a designer to one of the top 10 digital sites there are. Scrap Girls was one of the first digital scrapbooking stores to open in 2004 when Rozanne Paxman first opened it's doors. I had been a huge fan way back then even in my digital scrapbooking infancy.

Everything even back then was professional and friendly. Scrap Girls has grown in leaps and bounds and although Rozanne is no longer at the helm, SG is a happy friendly and very professional digital scrapbooking website.

Angie Briggs is now the proud new owner with an outstanding team that I can now say I am not only part of but very proud to be one of the design girls.

geekgirl designs is also growing in all things digital and busy creating some of the most gorgeous kits you'll set your eyes on.

When I started out in digital scrapbooking around 2005, I discovered an art form that I fell in love with straight away. I was already a huge fan on the scrapbooking side of things and worked in the community helping others create, but digital designing allowed me to bring my love of creating and computers together in perfect harmony.

Back in those days I was a designer for Pickleberry Pop under my own name Chris Turnbull...

My how things have changed and evolved for me. geekgirl designs happened by pure chance...my computer and I are one and I love to keep my hands and mind busy with design.

I'm here and kinda the gal in the middle of all those faces...the best of the best and an incredibly talented team.

Head on over as there's a sale on all my goodies and although there is only a handful at the moment, over the next few weeks my store will fill up with new designs exclusive to Scrap Girls.

I'm excited...

And here I am...

new designs and 50% off sale...

hi all, a little quiet of late these past couple of weeks as i started my new job and have been away from my home town for the most part since then and am still away for a couple more weeks yet.

everything is slowly coming together although am somewhat nervous for when i'm out on the road on my own. i've got this christine!

so new freebies and designs have been somewhat limited and once my training is finished and i'm home for the most part, then i can settle down and get creative in any spare time i have...lol

oh and i have some really exciting news i can't share just yet but hanging out too. so when i can i shall!

okay on the design scene, these paper packs which i absolutely adore are now available in my stores for half price over at Berry Applicious and Wilma4Ever however they are still in the processing part over at MyMemories!

yes yes yes...i am having a 50% off sale in all my online stores. Why? well truth be told, i turned 50 years of age yesterday (29 May) and it just seemed the right thing to do to celebrate. so everything in all 3 stores is 50% off and that includes all my commercial use products as well.

grab yourself a bargain and head on over and grab yourself those goodies you've all been after for some time!

enjoy and until next blog post where i hope to share my great news...ciao!

design consultant...

today i started my new job as Design Consultant for Blockout Blinds. this is going to be a very exciting journey, one full of challenges and all in a good way.

so i survived my first day...not that it was hard by any means as it gives out such a positive vibe and everyone on board has a great positive attitude towards their job and towards Blockout Blinds.

i believe the more we can learn and the more we immerse ourselves in our jobs, family life and hobbies, the more we absorb and the more we can be and do.

you need that great work/life balance to achieve greater things in life and if you're not happy...do something about it!

life is where you allow it to take you and if you don't like jumping out of your comfort zone every now and then, how can you take the risks needed to succeed?!

many years ago i learnt what going the extra mile was all about in my early teens i started using this approach quite naturally as it seems to be part of my genetic makeup and have lived by it every single day of my since. being a people person, gravitating to those less fortunate, supporting those that need it...whether they put there hand up or hand out, always wanting to give back to my community whether it's online or on the street.

life for me is important, it happens quickly and it faces challenges often. life is short and it does not discriminate but in one life time you can achieve a lot and so much more.

so on to my next topic...designing!
