You're Gonna Miss This {plus Print It Now 2 FREEBIE}

{edited to include freebie only}

And that's where my next freebie comes in! All those digital pictures sitting on your computer? Because you have plans to do it someday or plans to do something with them? Forget it.

Concentrate on RIGHT NOW. Download this second set of frames, pretty 'em up with them (and the first set), add dates and a line of journaling if you wish, and PRINT 'EM!

NOW! Enjoy them NOW . . . not next week or next year.

Forget scrapping each one to artistic perfection or just thinking you'll get to printing them . . . someday.

Just stop thinking about it and 12 other things at the same time. Do it.

Now!

Here's the preview:

DOWNLOAD IT HERE.
(link will be good until the end of August or so)

Enjoy and have a great day!

Thanks so much for the great frames and for making them so easy to decorate photos and just print them out. Great effect and a timesaver too!

Thanks so much for the frames! I can't wait to use them! As for cleaning, maybe you can break down areas and do a certain area on a certain day instead of doing it all at one time? I have been doing that with a task for each day (washing the bathroom one day, vaccuuming another etc.) and it is really easier because I know when I get it done I can play on the computer without feeling guilty! Have a nice day!

I read the whole post - I can so relate! The older I get the less I'm able to mulit-task. I have done the staring at the pot (or cupboards) wondering what the heck I'm standing there for. LOL!

What a great idea for the frames! I just picked up both sets and come back to leave you a thank you here.
I truly can identify with the multi-tasking. I am amazed at those people who can clean just one room at a time. I get so easily distracted!
Great song by Trace too. Love that one. ;) Have a good day!

ok first, I HAVE TO get that song! second these frames are gorgeous, thanks so much for sharing!
and you post totally sums up how I feel each day, it would be nice to hear my hubby say "dinner was great hun" or "thanks for (fill in the blank)" once in a while, but I guess sometimes those things get over looked. at least my little boy lets me know when he really likes dinner, or thanks me for doing things for him. and his hugs can totally brighten my day so I guess I don't have too much to complain about do it?

Beth, thanks for the frames. Couldn't sleep last night because I was thinking about scrapping. Got inspired by Ali Edwards talking about hybrid scrapping and divided page protectors. (I'm going to digiscrap some 12x12 pages and also include divided page protectors with six 4x6 photos per side.) Then I remembered your first set of frames. That fueled my obsession as I thought about how I was going to use your frames on the pages of 4x6 printed photos.

Long story short, I was up until 6 AM planning my daughter's school album and my 2006 family album! Acutally got 8 plop-in-your-photos-on-a-predesigned-layout-style pages done! It's insane! So, thanks for the frames to help fuel my insanity!

And have you ever looked at flylady.net for organization ideas? She encourages you to do things in 15 minute chunks so you don't get overwhelmed. Especially helpful if you have kids hovering nearby or if you have a bad back or a chronic disease or whatever else. :)

I am so in that same place - multi-tasking to the nth degree... I need the world to slow down just a little.

And love the Trace Adkins song... well, I just simply love Trace! :-)

Beautiful frames!

bandwife said...

Thanks so much for the freebie! Now I just need to get off my behind and go it. lol

Love the flylady.net site that Mac posted. Will have to start that when I get home. Especially the 27-Fling Boogie!

Have a great day and keep your chin up.

Thanks so much for the frames, Beth! Love it :)

btw in case you're interested to see, I used your 19 circles template & this is the link - http://www.digishoptalk.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=390585&ppuser=8995. I'll be posting it in my blog too next few days when things slow down a bit! Thanks so much again!!

kicksmom said...

Thank you for the wonderful frames. House cleaning...hate it, hate it but am so happy when I do have a clean house at least until my boys get home!

The Lord Family said...

Thank you! Your post is spot on--I need to be "here" right now. Because I will miss these crazy days!

Crissie said...

Oh thank goodness! I'm not the only one that gets lost in multi-tasking! And I LOVE that Trace Adkins song...my oldest is turning 15 in less than 2 weeks! Dang, I already miss that little boy.

Thanks for the frames. I love them! :)

Church said...

These are awesome. Thanks! I just subscribed to your RSS. My friend makes fun of me because I'm addicted to swirls/flourishes.

Now I have to buy your mega set so I can have them all!

Amber said...

I'm right there with you. I feel so scatterbrained sometimes b/c I see everything that needs to be done and know if I don't do it myself it WON'T get done at all. Being a wife and mom is such a thankless job...

I LOVE that song you refrenced, btw. I don't care too much for country, but it seems like a lot of their songs have something in them that MAKE you stop for a minute and pay attention to what's going on around you...

Thanks for the frames, too, btw! :o)

HelenClyde said...

Thank you fo the lovely frames, I loved the first collection already (and turned them into pieces of art instead of instantly printing them), so this is really cool! And I clicked on two adds, two :-)

Actually my husband and me both forgot our own wedding aniversery, cause we both thought it was tuesday and it was on monday. But, hey, we still love each other.

I´m looking fowad aleady to your next creations!

Love the frames - thank you!

Maria in Tulsa said...

First, Thanks. Not for the freebie, but for the post. DOn't have time to read them all, but enjoyed what you shared. And you're right...we are gonna miss those times so we have to enjoy every minute in the present. Thanks for that reminder cause we all get so busy multitasking that it slips from our consciousness. AND thanks again for a wonderful Freebie! You're too good to us all...

Ginny said...

I love the freebie, this is my favorite type of thing to do to prints & they are so hard to find.

nztreasure said...

Julie said...

You should be a writer. REALLY, How well you came across with your message, it even sunk into my head. Wow, I like the freebie, but I like the story better.
