Further clarification

I’ve been getting quite a few e-mails lately, asking me to clarify personal vs. commercial use of my designs.  :)

If you accept money to design printables for a party… and in your design you use one or more of the Sprik Space Pattern Pieces… you need to buy a commercial use license from me.

If you accept money to design personal blogs and/or websites… and in your design you use one of the Sprik Space Pattern Pieces… you need to buy a commercial use license from me.

Etcetera…  It’s a simple request.  It’s the right thing to do.

If you have any questions, regarding personal vs. commercial use of my designs, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

For those of you who have alerted me to commercial use of my designs, thank you, thank you.

If you have been using any of my designs commercially, no hard feelings… just please contact me ASAP to purchase a Commercial License.  Thank you!

Number of times I mentioned the word “commercial” in this post = 7

Just because (37)

Just Because 37 - you are my sunshine (ombre) - sunny yellow - 8x10 - Sprik SpaceLately, one of Connor’s favorite phrases to say is “Do it again!”  It’s a great way to guarantee a fit of giggles as long as whatever you’re repeating gets sillier and sillier! 

After singing “You Are My Sunshine” to him for the umpteenth time in a half hour, it dawned on me that although I had done portions of the song as printables (1 & 2), I had never worked up the first line of the song.  I’ve also had ombre on the brain recently, too.  :)

So I’ve “done it again”… it’s another printable for you in the Just Because Series!

 

Just Because 37 - you are my sunshine (ombre)

This time around, the printable is available sized as an 8x10 in a whopping 25 colorways!

To download the 8x10 image(s) for printing, simply click on either image in this post, and a new window will open to the download locations in 4shared.  Save the image(s) to your computer, and they’re yours!  Just print it out yourself, or upload to your photo printer of choice. 

 

I’ll be posting this project to a few of the link-up parties listed here:

GIVEAWAY :: Kristen Duke Photography’s “Say NO to Auto”

I’m breaking status quo here on Sprik Space to share something with all of you that I’m head over heels excited about… and I’m running a GIVEAWAY!

1993Eighteen years ago, I was a senior in high school and she was a freshman… little did I know, Kristen Duke had some mad photo skills brewing and would later turn into an amazing photographer! 

Of course, at this point in my life I would love to get my little family professionally photographed… by Kristen.  Sadly, she’s in Austin, and I’m in Chicago.  I haven’t been back to Texas since the year that photo was taken (layovers don’t count), and when I missed her recent workshop in Arizona by a mere 4 hours, I was majorly bummed. 

So, for now, I’ll just have to make do by trying to better my own photo-taking skills.  Let’s be honest, for pictures worth keeping and especially framing, auto settings on any camera just don’t cut it, and standard flash usage ruins great photos.  I’ve studied a little bit online, but it’s more than a bit overwhelming for a newbie like myself.  There’s just way too much information out there, and I don’t really know where to begin. 

Enter wonderful Kristen Duke.  :) 

imagesKristen has recently updated her popular “Say NO to Auto” e-book, and I absolutely love it!  You don’t have to own a DSLR camera to benefit from her helpful tips.  I downloaded her revised e-book a little while ago, and it’s already helping me to understand the manual settings on my little point-and-shoot camera.  That’s because she’s broken it down to 3 steps – just the basics you need to learn to achieve better-looking photos, no matter what type of camera you own.  This easy-to-understand e-book is just 17 mini-pages or 4 regular-size pages, that you can print yourself or peruse on your computer.  And, guess what – Kristen has graciously offered a copy of her handy dandy e-book to one of my readers!

Alphabet Mosaic

We’re still brainstorming ideas for the walls in our dining room Connor’s playroom… yup, we started this project way back in January – the furniture and toys are all in place, the walls were painted, but nothing is hung on them… yet.  I know I want to put some sort of alphabet print (and goodness knows I’ve worked up several!) over his little reading corner, but I’m having trouble deciding which way I want to go. 

Connor’s also at the stage of spotting and pointing out logos and letters everywhere we go, so in brainstorming ideas for a new ABC print, I immediately thought of Leo Reynolds.  I first became familiar with his amazing Flickr photostream after I saw this project last year, and I ended up creating our own name sign for the collage wall, plus several more for family members last Christmas.  Using his images is such a fun, unique, and funky way to create word “art”.

So, I thought I would design a bright and colorful alphabet mosaic… since that’s how Connor’s playroom is turning out to be.  You’ve guessed it – I’m gonna share!  :)

This time around, the printable is available in 4 different sizes – 5x7, 8x10, 11x14 and 16x20!

Just because (36)

This phrase is one of my favorites… it comes from one of my favorite songs, and one of my favorite scripture passages.  I felt the sentiment would be perfect for a printable in our home...  and yours, too, if you wish!  :)

The Nursery Series

Have you seen this commercial for YoBaby Yogurt?  I see it frequently on Sprout right now, and I have a very hard time getting it out of my head each time it airs.  They play the first lines of 3 different nursery songs, all sung in the same key… 

So, guess what happened!  Naturally, I had it in my head when I sat down to design a new printable series.  :)

I decided to highlight 4 nursery songs for this series:  “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star”, “This Little Light of Mine”, “If You’re Happy and You Know It”, and “Hush Little Baby”.  I designed these printables so that they could easily be hung in a grouping together, piece-meal solo, or even as part of a collage wall.  I’m offering them in 2 different STYLES – gray text with a graphic [1], and white text without a graphic [2].  I honestly couldn’t decide which way I liked them better!  These are also all sized at 8x10s (big enough to see on the wall, small enough to not scream at you).  ;)

Back to reality…

Oh, what a crazy summer it’s been!

And, I do mean C-R-A-Z-Y.

We kept it all on the down low, but back in May, Brian was abruptly laid off from a very good job with a company he loved. 

Amazingly, by the end of June, he had found a position with a much larger (more stable) company.  Just as we had begun to accept the unknown, the perfect opportunity came along with an offer he couldn’t refuse.  We did not expect it to happen so quickly after his layoff, but we feel so incredibly fortunate and blessed!

The new job means quite a bit of travel still, but when he’s home, he’s home…that is, working upstairs, in our home office.  So, we really can’t complain.  :)

Once he accepted the new offer, Brian took a full month off, and boy, did we take advantage of it!  We planned projects around the house, family outings, sold/bought a car, made a trip to Michigan, hosted family and friends, began redecorating, took a family vacation to Arizona, and fit in a spa getaway for the two of us – it’s been wonderful having that precious time together before starting the new job and getting back to the grind of things.  (And that’s why the blog’s been so quiet, and I’m beyond late in responding to e-mails and phone calls for so many weeks!)

Meanwhile, Connor… (or “Honnor” as he likes to call himself – hey, it’s better than his last rendition--“Kanye”!) is walking, running, and talking up a storm.  He’s a bundle of energy wrapped up in a cute little 2.5yo package, and we couldn’t adore him any more than we already do!  He’s kinda sorta fitting into 2T clothing, but his waistbands will probably have to be rolled for a long, long time.  He always wants to try new foods (especially meat!), and is mastering self-feeding with a spoon and fork surprisingly well.  The jury’s still out, but he just might be a lefty.  He’s showing a little bit of interest in potty-training, but it’s likely too soon to capitalize on it (basically, I’m not ready to commit to it yet).  His best buddy lives a couple doors down, and they LOVE to play together (when it’s not too sweltering outside for the moms).  He’s a human sponge and loves pretending that any object is a phone or a laptop, so he’s constantly making calls and checking his e-mail.  ;)  He’s very much into cars and creating parking lots all over the house – we’ve got neat little lines of toys in just about any room, always underfoot – he’s going to make an excellent valet attendant when he grows up.  ;)  We had a rough few weeks, but he’s back on track with his stellar sleeping habits – 10-12 hours per night, with a 2-3 hour nap each afternoon.  I know, I’m a spoiled mommy!  His good boy days still far outnumber his bad boy days – the terrible twos are definitely upon us, but we’re taking it in stride.  All in all, we’re pleased as punch with his progress lately and remain pleasantly surprised by and grateful for everything he’s accomplished thus far!

Summer 2011 exhibit B

 

I’ve got several dozen more photos to comb through and edit to share here on the blog… and, one of these days, it’ll get done.  The grandparents will have to make do with just these few.  :)

All in all, we’re exhausted – it’s been an emotional and hectic summer – but, we feel so incredibly fortunate and blessed!

Stay tuned, because I’ve been busy the last couple of days, trying to quietly play catch-up (unsuccessfully) and design some new freebies for the blog (successfully!).  If you’re a Facebook fan, you’ve already seen a SNEAK PEEK!
