AODD2 Blog Hop Freebie

If you're visiting by way of the AODD2 Spring Blog Hop, welcome!  You just came from Elaine Anjos Designs, and are now at Foosa Moon Creations, and your next stop will be Jeanie's Designs. If you get lost along the way, a complete blog list is available at Anna Janise Designs.  (Please be aware that there are bloggers from all different time zones and locations, so if a stop is missing, please be patient!)

Yay! The day for the Art of Digital Design 2 blog hop is finally here! Class ended in November, but because of the holidays, we decided to push back our blog hop until things calmed down in the Spring. At least, that was the plan.

I don't know about you, but things never really seem calm around here! We just had family in town for a long weekend, and had a great time, and my daughter has 4 more days of Spring Break before we can really get back into our regular routine.

My portion of the blog hop contains 4 papers and 6 elements. I love how bright and cheery this color palette was, and loved working with flowers as it's been warming up around here.  Won't be long and the flowers will be outside my window, in addition to on my screen! This mini will be available as a freebie here on my blog until March 31, so grab it while it's available! <Mini is no longer available>

I also am getting ready to change out my Facebook Freebie, so if you haven't snagged that, make sure to head over to Facebook and like Foosa Moon Creations. For the sake of my sanity, let's say the current freebie will last until March 31.

Thanks for stopping by my little section of the internet! My shop is at, you're at my blog, and I'm on Facebook too. I would love it if you looked around and let me know what you think!

The next stop on the blog hop is Jeanie's Designs.

Haiku Pond

The final piece of the Haiku collection is here!

Haiku Pond
The great Springtime, almost Summery, weather is still hanging around the point where there are already wildfires burning not too far away. I turned the sprinklers on for the first time today, and have someone schedule to aerate the lawn later next week.  Lots of new growth on the bushes, and soon everything will be green again! I also still have company here, so can't spend too much time on the computer, but I knew I needed to get this kit posted up!

Haiku Garden

The weather here has decided to start looking like Spring again, just in time for the 2nd release of my Haiku Collection.
Haiku Garden

Haiku Garden contains the green that is starting to appear, as well as the butterflies that will make there appearance a little later in the season. Ok, butterflies won't really be here until the Summer...but play along with me, here!  This kit contains 2 solid papers, 6 patterned papers, 3 buttons, 3 tags, 2 photo corner sets, 1 word art in sticker and rub on format, and 2 alphas. These pieces are designed to stand alone, or coordinate with Haiku Blossom (and the third Haiku set coming out on Monday)!

I'm taking some time off again this weekend to spend time with family. My mother-in-law and sister-in-law are visiting from out of state, so we will be having lots of quality time while we can!  That being said, I will still be back in your inbox on Monday with the 3rd Haiku release.  When I started working with Haiku, Blossom was the set I worked first and thought would be my favorite.  In the end, the 3rd set is my favorite of the 3, if I'm going to play favorites!

See you Monday!

Haiku Blossom

As Spring has officially arrived (though the weather is back to feeling like winter around here), I have the first of 3 Spring themed kits that will be arriving in my shop over the next week.

Haiku Blossom
I wish the weather we had last week would have stuck around, but it is a little early here in Colorado to really truly feel like Spring. (Though a little rain wouldn't hurt at all!)

Haiku Garden will be arriving on March 23, and Haiku Pond will be revealed on March 26.

Also, if you haven't grabbed the current Facebook Freebie, hop over to the Foosa Moon facebook page and snag it before it's gone. I have a new freebie I will be posting that coordinates with the Haiku Collection!

And finally, the AODD2 blog hop will be kicking off on March 29. I have my hop goodies all zipped up and ready to go, and am excited to see what the other participants have created!

Add this kit to your cart and $10 worth of product to get Space Case for free.

It has been a beautiful week here in Colorado, making it hard to focus at the computer, but I am very excited for some of the upcoming projects I've been working on. What's coming up, you ask?  Well, next month's collab was due today, I have a new collection in QC at the time of this posting, AND I'm prepping for a blog hop with my classmates from Art of Digital Design 2.

Look forward to sharing all these exciting things with you!!

For the Love of Books!

All images are linked to product in the store

I am so horrible when it comes to remembering dates far in advance.  So it was with a chuckle that I realized I released the first half of For the Love of Books the day before Dr. Seuss's birthday.  I wish I could say I had planned that, but no, it was purely coincidence.

We celebrated Dr. Seuss's birthday at my house by going out to buy a new copy of one of my favorite Seuss books: Fox in Socks.  I know we used to have a copy of it when my daughter was little and we subscribed to a book of the month type club, but it's either packed in a box in the basement, or it is long gone. We also picked up Oh the Thinks You Can Think.  I love Dr Seuss rhymes, both for their silliness, and the way they teach fun with language. I credit Dr. Seuss (and my husband's sense of humor) for teaching our daughter how to pay with words, and shout out "That's alliteration!" after hearing "push play" at a friend's birthday party at the age of 4.

I am back today (after my coffee and Peeps kick, rounded out with yogurt and granola) with the second half of the collection:  red papers, solid papers, hardware/software, and tags.

I have had a lot of fun playing with this kit, even after it was completed.  I put together this second page to show off some of the red papers and the frame set that was released last week.

And my friend Jennifer put this page together for me also.  Jennifer used to live down the street from me, but has since moved away.

It is fun to see her kids when they were younger, and in front of a tree I know so well!
