It's Fabulous Friday!

I don't know about you, but I'm really having a hard time picking out images to play with.  Floppy and Steph have done such a GREAT job.... I want them all.....

Remember...  The Eddie sale is still going on,  yep EVERYTHING is 1/2 off.  At that rate you can have all the new releases and a few more.  Then the problem is finding crafty time.....


                                                                 Polar Bear
                                    (hardest part was making the Tim Holtz snowflake)



                                                              Candy Cane Tag


Be sure to stop by next week....  I have a GREAT gift idea to share.  Until then, happy crafting.

Simply Sentiments, and a few important announcements!




Happy Thursday!  Yes, it is Simply Sentiments Thursday!  And Stef has two lovely ones for you!

 But before we get to those, I need to make a few announcements.  If you visited yesterday, you already know it is PICK YOUR FREEBIE WEEK!  This is the very last PICK YOUR FREEBIE WEEK, that I will be having.  As much as it pains me, due to the double and triple (on occasion) dipping, I am forced to discontinue it on a permanent basis.  Things are very tight for everyone, I know, believe me, I know.  And I know it is always wonderful for you all to pick exactly the freebie that you want, cause sometimes what I put up is not exactly want you would want for a freebie.  I get it.  After I did the report for October, on the PYF week, I gave away 2.5 times the number of freebies that I give away during the rest of the month.  And  this was due to two and three stamps taken on the coupon to total the $3.00.  Now, this may cause me to lose all kinds of customers, and get me a lot of bad press, but this is MY JOB, this is how I make money.  I love to give freebies, but I can't afford to give away the store once a month.  I am sure that you all understand where I am coming from.  I do hope that I have not offended anyone, but if I don't discontinue it, I would have to shut the store down due to lack of funds.  And that is something that I just cant see doing.  So, make sure that you pop in this week to PICK YOUR OWN FREEBIE!  Please, also choose only one, even though the coupon is worth $3.00 please only choose one.  Due to the sale, the coupon has to be set up this way so that if all you want is a free stamp, you can get one!

NOW, THIS DOES NOT APPLY TO THOSE WHO MADE PURCHASES WELL ABOVE THE $3.00 LIMIT AND USED THE COUPON.  THAT IS PERFECTLY ACCEPTABLE, AND A VERY BIG THANK YOU TO THOSE WHO DID PURCHASE THIS WEEK AND FOR THE DONATIONS TO EDDIE'S FUND!  WE ARE DOWN TO THE LAST 51.00 TO COLLECT!  YOU ALL ARE THE VERY BEST CUSTOMERS A SHOP OWNER COULD EVER ASK FOR!

Also,  Manic Monday will be taking a vacation until the first of the New Year.  I do this every year to give me time to get stuff done during the Holidays, and with Eddie with me full time now, there is more to do than ever! (and I am so happy to do it!)  But, there will still be posts made at least 3 times a week, and special little things for you all during the Holidays!  Manic Monday will return on January 3, 2013, with a few changes, but it will be back!  Just fine tuning things so it is smooth sailing for us all.

Ok, enough of the business end of things.  Lets have a look at Stef's Sentiment offerings this week!




These sentiments are perfect for those last minute Christmas Cards and gift tags, and they are on Sale!  Yeppers, on sale for only .75 each!  What a deal!

Well, I hear the garage and all the packing boxes calling me!  And no one should envy me that job!  Two Van loads and one truck load of stuff, with still, two more loads to pick up!  Oy Vey, I didn't realize we had so much stuff!!!!!!!

Anywho!
I do hope that you pop over for the Pick Your Freebie week and grab that last minute image!

Linda is up tomorrow and she always has some great creations for you to look at!

If anyone has any questions concerning the special announcements, please email me at admin@floppylattedesigns.com.  I would be happy to hear all of your comments, concerns, questions, and yes, even complaints!  I will personally get back to you as quick as I can.

Hope to see all of you on Monday!
Catch you on the Flip!

Ok, a few days late but Manic Monday turned into Wednesday has arrived!



Happy Hump Day everyone!  It has been a week so far, but I won't bore you with those details, just suffice it to say......I would really like Santa to bring me a Mercedes for Christmas......Not that he will, so I will amend that to, Santa, please bring me a reliable vehicle, automatic pls!  LOL!

Before I get off on one of my famous tangents, I must say a HUGE THANK YOU TO EVERY ONE that has purchased, donated, or both these past two weeks!  I only have to come up with 103$ to pay the attorney!  And I could not have even been half that close without all of you, so it is with all the love in my heart that I say THANK YOU!

NEW RELEASES:

Yes, I have had a few stress free moments and I have more New Releases to add to Stef's bounty!  So, Here We Go!




And I have 4 more that are in progress for this week as well! Since Im stuck now at home for moment (or days) we will see, I can concentrate on getting a few more done for you!

Now the fun stuff!
MANIC MONDAY!
I told you that the wait would be worth it, and it is!  This is the LAST PICK YOUR FREEBIE!
I wanted this week to be fun for you all so now you get to browse the shop, to see if there is anything that you missed earlier and PICK YOUR FREEBIE! (I do ask that you only choose 1 freebie, even though the coupon is for $3.00.  I had to set it up this way because of the Eddie's Sale going on.)  
And your PICK YOUR FREEBIE CODE IS:      MM1128  Your code is valid until December 4th!  Yep, I was late and you all are not gonna be shorted!

I know how you guys just love to pick, so have at it and have a good time!  I do this because I love to, but it is also my job and I hope to be able to continue this for many many years!

Ok, got to draw so I can beat Stef on the number of New Releases....right now she is ahead of me and oh  my, I just can not have that!  LOL, she knows I love her more than butter!

I hope each and every one of you have a great rest of the week, getting ready for yet another holiday!

FLOPPY is busy, busy, busy with everything that's been going on in her life lately, and i'm actually busy with holiday stuff... which, if you know me at all.... i'm the BAH HUMBUG person in the group here.  surprisingly... i'm actually in a good holiday mood this year.... GO GLITTERBABE!!!!!  anywho... here's a little something to put a smile on your face and get you ready for the holidays....

Christmas Cake

Ingredients:

* 2 cups flour
* 1 stick butter
* 1 cup of water
* 1 tsp baking soda
* 1 cup of sugar
* 1 tsp salt
* 1 cup of brown sugar
* Lemon juice
* 4 large eggs
* Nuts
* 1 bottle tequila
* 2 cups of dried fruit

Sample the tequila to check quality.  Take a large bowl, check the
tequila again.  To be sure it is of the highest quality, pour one level
cup and drink.  Repeat. 

Turn on the electric mixer.  Beat one cup of butter in a large fluffy
bowl.  Add one teaspoon of sugar.  Beat again. 

At this point it's best to make sure the tequila is still OK.  Try
another cup...  Just in case.  Turn off the mixer thingy.  Break 2 eggs
and add to the bowl and chuck in the cup of dried fruit.

Pick the frigging fruit up off floor.  Mix on the turner.  If the fried
druit gets stuck in the beaterers just pry it loose with a drewscriver.
Sample the tequila to check for tonsisticity.  

Next, sift two cups of salt...  Or shumething.  Check the tequila.  Now
shift the lemon juice and strain your nuts.  Add one table.  Add a spoon
of sugar, or some fink.  Whatever you can find. 

Greash the oven.  Turn the cake tin 360 degrees and try not to fall
over.  Don't forget to beat off the turner.  Finally, finish the tequila
and wipe counter with the cat.

Bingle Jells!

Manic Monday Here Again....Updates and New Products!



Hi and Happy Manic Monday to you all!  I hope you all had a great weekend!  Ours was a mixed bag.  We had the Memorial Service for Mike, and that was the toughest part.  We took My Sister, Erin, our Adopted Brother (not really, but it makes him feel good) Tommy Jo, My Mom and her husband, myself and Mark on a little fishing adventure over to the seawall for a time.  Yep, we caught Lady Fish, a skate (type of ray) a pin fish and a ton of laughs!  Just trying to make a great memory for the Ed Man!  He is presently staying with his Auntie Erin for the week whilst we make the dreaded journey back to Cold Kentucky to retrieve the rest of our household goods! (the stuff I really needed got left behind...gonna blame the help lol!)  So we will be out of pocket Tuesday thru Friday.  I really dread the journey as I really didn't want to have to go back there. But alas, I must, so I shall, and I will smile the entire time, unless I get too cold and Sir Markus forgets to make regular coffee stops!  (he wont but Im just sayin!)

Here is the update on the Fiduciary Guardianship Filing:  Money Raised:  202.00
Money Spent:  November 15th:  $100 to McGuire Law Offices.
                       November 19th:  $100 to McGuire Law Offices

We still have $300 to go before the filing but he is temporarily putting a hold on anything that may be filed by someone other than myself.  So I still have a ways to go, but we will make it I am sure of it!

I want to say a Huge THANK YOU to everyone that has purchased, donated, or both because you just don't know how much it is appreciated!  From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU!

Ohhh, I have a few new goodies today.   Some paper packs that are simply gorgeous and a new set of christmas bells for you!

Here we go!




Pretty Pretty!

And yes, I do have your Manic Monday for you as well!  Nope, won't keep you waiting!

Berry Wreath!


Now, I have it set to free in the store, but you will see a price on the info page, and you will also see a Pink Free tag on it.  Once you put it in your cart, it will show as free, nothing else required.  I am trying this out as the system is giving me fits on restricting coupons and setting limits on the freebies.    So I think this way will work out until I can devise a new system.  I do apologize for changing it up so much, but I have to find the way that it will work best.

Anywho, this am, we are off to get a tire, change the oil in Maude (the van) wash a bit of clothes, grab a bite to eat and prepare for the journey.  I have to find my long pants and thermals,  havent seen jeans since I have been here and I have a flip flop tan on my feet!  Yes, a TAN on my feet in the middle of November, gotta love that!

So, with a big Thanks from all of us at Floppy Latte, we will see you on Wednesday!

Catch you on the Flip!

Simply Sentiments Thursday! And a few more New Releases!


Happy Thursday Morning Everyone!  It is Simply Sentiments Thursday, along with another dose of New Releases!

But First - an Update!  $175.25 has been raised for the Fiduciary Guardianship filing fee!  I could not be more thankful!  We are getting there!  And I want to say THANK YOU! to everyone who has shopped and donated, just shopped, or just donated!  You all have touched my heart in ways that you can not fathom!  Eddie is so excited about all of this, and he thinks you all are the most wonderful customers in the world!  And so do I!  The appointments for this and that are almost over until the court hearings and what not so a little prayer for a job might be in order as well!  But I do have to say, I do love the quiet time I get to draw, albeit late late in the evening!  It really refreshes my spirit and soul!

Okay, now on to some new releases!  Let me seeeeeee,,,,,,  I think Stef has got a few Sentiments for you! (I wish I could do a sentiment as fast as her but alas, I can't so I have to save a few up for a while to get it all together.)



These are under Simply Sentiments in the left sidebar of the shop, and also you can find them under New Products as well!

Ohhhhhh, I have some goodies too!  Wanna see????  Okay!






Wowza, gotta say the shop is filling up for fall and Christmas!  And with the Sale going on, you really should check back every so often to see what we have come up with next!

I am busy enjoying a quiet cup of coffee, working on a drawing, waiting for Sir Markus to rise up from some much needed rest after being gone for almost 3 weeks, and we have a bit of running to do today!

Remember, the Sale is on until the 15th of December so make sure to check back often for the New offerings!

Ok, off to finish that cup of coffee (I just love my new Keurig that I got for my birthday in July!  Eddie and Mark are the best shoppers in the world!)

Hugs from us all!
Catch you on the flip!

Manic Monday is here again....a HUGE SALE...and on a more serious note...

Happy Manic Monday to you all.  I know I have been out of pocket for a few weeks and I shall explain.

My son's (Eddie) father passed away on October 25, 2012.  I had to pack up early and move to Florida to be with my son.  A move was already planned but this unfortunate event put everything into high gear.  My son has lived with his father (an agreed to arrangement due to school, etc) and I made visits very often and Eddie was in what I thought was a stable environment.  Come to find out, I was missing a lot of information about what was going on.  That being said, I picked him up a few days after his father's passing, to find out that all he had in the world was an egg crate of clothes, his computer, tv, gaming system, and a bike.

His father died intestate, (without a will) and he did not include the necessary information on Life insurance documents that were left for Eddie.  So, on top of his passing, I am left to deal with all the necessary items to finalize his estate.  Mike has a sister, Debi, that resides in Georgia that is supposedly making arrangements for a memorial service here in Florida, but has yet to give us any information and without this, Ed is basically without anything of his father's.  No access to insurance benefits, Social Security or anything.  And to top it all off, the State of Florida requires Parents who are divorced to file a Fiduciary Guardianship to administer any Life Insurance Proceeds left to their minor child if the deceased parent did not specify this in the insurance policy.  Even though I am his mother, I am still required to do this by law.  Yes, it is stupid but that is how it is.  Now, I am up against the wall.  We must file this this week and I do have a wonderful attorney, but it is going to cost $3000.00 for him to administer this Guardianship for the next 2 1/2 years (which works out to about $100.00 a month).  Now, since I have used this attorney in the past he is giving me a break during this difficult time for me  and allowing me to set up payments.  Which will be great because I can get this settled and then the remainder of what is due will be taken out of the proceeds of the benefits that Eddie is to receive   A small price to pay to make sure his college and future needs are met (as his father intended). As I just got here to Florida, I haven't begun to start looking for a job.  I feel my son's needs are top priority right now; and because of this there is no money for the retainer because the benefits can not be obtained without the Fiduciary Guardianship (for the Life Insurance).    Though it pains me tremendously,  this must be taken care of  for Eddie's sake so I feel the need to ask for your help.

I am having "Eddie's Sale" for the remainder of November and up until the 15th of December in the store to raise the money.  I am hoping to raise $500 this week.  I am putting the store at 50% off of all the items.  Reward points will be able to be used and earned as well, and you will be able to use one coupon.  I have also added 3  new items.  A donation to Eddie's Fiduciary Guardianship fund.  There are three, from $1 to $3 if you feel it in your heart to help. Here is the link:  Eddie's Guardianship Fund  I would rather you enjoy my products but if you want to, feel free to donate to Eddie.   All of the money raised will go to his guardianship filing. A BIG THANK YOU to Stef for donating all of her sales during this sale to the fund!  I LOVE YOU STEF!   A full accounting will also be posted.  Thank you all for your kind words over the last week!  We really appreciate them and I let Eddie read everything that comes in!  He really appreciates it as well and feels good to know that my customers are more than customers, they are people that care!  So Thank you All!

Stef aka Glitterbabe has some new products as well, that I need to get out to you so here ya go! (Gotta love Stef and her patience with me!)  Here we go!



Well, since Stef is on a Christmas roll, I thought I would jump on the Bandwagon!  Keep going!

On a happier note:

Now on to Manic Monday:

I have had a few moments to get some great digis ready for you!  Without further ado, let's roll them out:









Whew!  Thank goodness for late nights and coffee!  You can find all of the new products under the New Products link on the Left Sidebar at the shop!

And your Manic Monday Freebie is:  Choose your Freebie Week!  Your code is MMEDDIE.  Good for $3.00.

And Since there is a Sale Going on, I will be adding at least 2 new products daily at around 10 am each morning!  Sometimes, if the night holds out, I will be adding more than two, so make sure to check back often and grab the latest, greatest digis for your Christmas Crafts.

Those of you that have reward points (you will see them upon log in) can use those with the sale, and you can use up  to one coupon per purchase!

This sale is for Eddie and I do hope that you will find something that you love!

Well, it is Veterans Day, and Eddie is cooking me a bit of breakfast for his Veteran Mommy this am!  Then I am taking him fishing over at the sea wall for a bit.  He seems the happiest when he is fishing so that is how we are going to spend our day!

We here at Floppy Latte's Digital Designs want to say thank you to each and every one of our customers.  You are so much more than just customers, you are our friends and we love you!
