August Frames

Whew! I finally have time to write a little bit. To recap the past weekend, I tried to work on some of my projects Saturday morning, but when I found myself just dragging stuff around on the page I decided to quit and answer the call of those danged ole slot machines. BAD IDEA!!!

I shut 'em up allright, no jackpot, no T-shirt, no toaster, no nothin'. Suffice it to say, I would have been a whole lot better off staying home and creating crappy pages. The only thing I accomplished was doing my part to support the Louisiana economy for the month of August. ROTFLPIMP!!! I don't think I will go back till September, then I will have to do my birthday thing.

There is one issue I would like to address...for quite a while, we have had our own little group here at Babbles and things have been rolling along just fine. My blog averages 35-40% of comments to downloads, which is WAY more than most. I thank my regulars for this. It's because we have this special group of women that are so terrific! Ya'll think like me, (or at least respect my right to think and say what I want) and most importantly, you remember the manners that your Momma taught you. But here lately I have noticed that we are picking up more and more "grab & run" people. If you are a long time reader, you can stop reading here. If you are new to my blog, coming here through a link from another blog, you need to know this. I was born & raised in the South and I place a very great importance on manners. Lilly is not even two yet, but she knows to say thank you when someone GIVES her something. I prefer to have them here on the blog, but I'll take what I can get! It doesn't take 10 seconds to post a simple "TY" on 4shared while you are waiting for the download link. Hit download, scroll down, type TY in the box, and then go up & download. Not just for me, for EVERYONE you download from. It really burns my butt when I download from some of my fave places and there are 500 downloads and ten comments. So, take a few seconds out of your busy day and make a designer happy! OkeyDokey, rant over. Regulars start reading again here. (Ya'll read it all, didn't you?) LOL!!!

Now on to the frames! This month I have two different styles for you. First is the popsicle stick, plain or wrapped with drips. Password is: thank you Then there is the polaroid, plain or wrapped with rubber bands. I threw in two worn paper frames that are not shown in my crappy preview. I have some of the "stuff" ready, but there are one or two things I am gonna try to complete tonight. I'm just happy I will actually have it finished before the end of the month!

I have been out at the lake for the last couple of weeks so haven't downloaded anything from you as I only had dial up and it just wouldn't work!

Back in the city for a couple of days and love the frames. Thanks so much

I hope I'm okay leaving my TY's here rather than at 4Shared, Vicki. It just feels, more personal to say thanks at "your house" (on your blog) rather than "a card in the PO Box" (at 4-Shared) I'm here practically every day for morning coffee anyway, but I don't always download the freebie. (I'm definitely downloading this one! This kit s fantastic!)

As far as the Thank Yous go, I would think that people who don't have time to say thank you, really don't have time to scrap either. Betcha their work shows that! ;)

I am so sorry that people are just grabbing and running. I know that sometimes I don't have the time to stop and leave comments (i know it doesn't take too long) as I have 4 kids that are constantly asking for something LOL. For this I apologize though. Over the last week I have been trying harder to leave comments on all the things I download. so with all of that said, THANK YOU for all of the things you have made for all of us.

I LOVE you, Vicki!!!!! You know your regulars all too well (Yes, I DID read the entire thing . . . ).

Those slots are starting to whisper . . . September is only a week and a half away!!!!

Take care and GB

txbubbles (trying to improve the digi-scrap world one thank you at a time) - LMAO!!

You are SO funny!! I agree with you though, the manners out there are abysmal! I get less than 10% thank yous and it's awful if I think about it too much - which I try not to! I ALWAYS say thank you for anything I download and to be honest, I even say thanks for things I don't! That's just the way I was bought up!

Big hugs from England xxxx
