...to my Treehouse, where I do a bit of sharing goodies with my readers, and a lot of showing off of my CT tags. It's my little nest in the busy world of psp.

Squirrely has been my nickname since I was a child, both because it rhymes with my real name, and because I'm forgetful and just plain nuts at times. I've been tagging for 2+ decades off and on, and now that I'm retired/disabled I'm pretty much on most of the time now.

I love to share what I make with you, and I LOVE it when you respond with love back for the shares. So have a look around, take what you like and enjoy yourself. Just watch for splinters.

Holiday Cheer Desktops & ShowOffs

This is my favorite time of year to be a tagger!  It's also my favorite time of year period so I've got lots of new tags to show you AND a new Desktop set for you to snag as well.  I haven't made one of those in awhile and the kit I used beckoned to be used as such.  

But first look at my latest tags CT'ing for Dee of Dees'Sign Depot. Click on them to see them larger.

If you spend just $5 in her store, you can get this gorgeous kit for FREE!  That is a steal, believe me "Hush" is simply Lush!! 

You can also purchase these two bundled together along with an additional Frame Cluster Pack.


This was such a blast to play with, and I think this kit has a little bit edginess to it along with it's sweetly cute elements, so I made one holiday-sexy and one cutie pie tag to show off both spectrums. There are dozens of tags to be made with this one kit because of it's versatility.

This is a stunning kit from last year that's still trendy today thanks to Dee's eye for amazing colors and attention to details. It's very much a Winter kit that can be used for the Holidays rather than the other way around, so you can use it all Winter long.

and lastly but certainly not least, 
I LOVE when Dee collabs with another amazing Designer as she did with Foxys Designs this time around to create this bright and cheerful Holiday collaborative kit. Beautiful and traditional Holiday elements and rich, RICH papers await you!!

Oh I got in the greatest Holiday spirit last night working with this kit, I just had to twinkle it up! I only wish Desktops could be animated so I could have matched today's goodie to this tag exactly. But alas..... Either way, this kit is simply about the fun and good cheer we feel during this season.

In my world, tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day, and when at that magical moment when Santa arrives in the Macy*s Thanksgiving Day Parade, it is officially the Holiday Season and time to decorate the house, cars and computers lol.  

I wish you an wonderful Thanksgiving if you celebrate it, and a very joyful and happy Holiday Season, in spite of the troubles we are facing in the world today.  I hope you enjoy this Desktop I've made for you and that it will decorate your computer with Christmas Cheer!

In the zip file, there's one for each popular size monitor

Hello Hello Hello!!

Ahhhh, it feels good to be nibbling in my beloved Treehouse, if only for a brief visit.  

I'm now into week 3 of my self imposed month bed rest to heal my sciatica, and am happy to report it is working for sure (smoke THAT in your pipe ever doubtful doctors!). It isn't going to be as fast as I'd hope, but it is working.  I can now sit for an hour a day in a regular chair without any pain whatsoever, which is an enormous improvement over non stop truly agonizing pain and swelling of my sciatica region.  I've been able to double my exercise regime in this time as well, I'm very pleased with that.  Because of these improvements I'm allowing myself now an hour a day on my computer to get some much missed tagging time in.

Of course that meant snapping up Dees'Sign Depot new holiday kit, "Merry Melodies" quicker than you can say Jingle Bell Rock, and having a play with it.  I needed to buy some new Winter/Christmas themed tubes and I found this precious tube by Melissa Dawn at CDO.  It reminded me of a Christmas card, so that became the theme of my tag.  There are so many sweet and glittery elements in Dee's kit, I'm sure I'll be back with more show-offs soon.

Merry Melodies even comes with 2 different alphas to use, one of which I used above.  Dee is also bundling her Holiday kits this year, which means you can purchase this full kit which I used, as well as 2 additional sets of clusters and frame clusters made from the kit - all for one great price!  Just think how many tags you could make with this amount of glittering gorgeousness!  Fa La La La La....

Thanks for looking everyone, I truly miss everyone so much and have told my 3 adult kiddos that all this Mama wants for Christmas this year is a laptop so I can get back to making goodies for the Treehouse and tags for my friends, AND save my sanity in the process lol.

MIA once again....

I wanted to let you all know, that I'm going to be at least a month MIA due to my spinal issues - what else?!  I'm on complete bed rest for the month in the hopes that my sciatica will heal itself, and to prevent surgery that will leave me pain free, but wheelchair bound.  So please send me good thoughts that this works.

Until I see you again, enjoy what I've left you with so far and have a great month!
