Okay, I am convinced that unless I create kits that are girly, no one visits my blog and downloads my freebies. Whenever I post a freebie that is even remotely feminine, I get lots of comments and downloads. When I post boy or male type freebies, I hardly get anyone visiting or downloading. Being the mom of two boys, this bums me out because I like to create kits I can scrap with and most of my photos are of my boys. So I am kind of bummed out because I put so much effort into today's freebie and I haven't even had 100 downloads yet. Could it be that everyone out there hunting down freebies and deals is after pink and green and flowers? Oh, well, the day is not over and perhaps everyone is so busy at others sites they'll get here eventually.

Update on my grab bag: I'm holding strong at number seven and I can't believe that no one who has purchased this grab bag has posted here so they get their free kit! Oh, this is just such a day I didn't expect. On a brighter note, the spring fair we went to today was fun and there were lots of firetrucks for Sam to drool over and lots of yummys for me to eat. I purchased four pussy willow rooted stems and I hope that by this time next year I have some beautiful pussy willow bushes in my yard.

Well, now that I've had my pity party, rambled and shared my depressing outlook of NSD thus far for me, here is the rest of the freebie kit for today, "The Necktie." Have a great rest of the day and I'll be back tomorrow morning and evening with the last NSD freebies. I have a couple photography jobs tomorrow so I'm not sure what time I'll be posting.

I just saw your ad for your blog and freebies, and zipped right over to download them! I love the "manly" papers. There really is no reason, if somebody doesn't have boys, to use them for girls. The colors are beautiful. The tie elements might not work (LOL), but hey, there are tons of flowery things available anyway! Thanks so much for giving us these great papers & elements!

With 3 sons and 2 grandsons, I love boyish things. I think everyone was preoccupied with NSD activities yesterday so please don't take it personally and PLEASE don't stop making guy things. Thanks for all you give....

Was away yesterday and just saw your post regarding goodies! Love this kit - so incredibly versitile. Now I want you to know that you talked me into spending money lol. Kept looking at the grab bags and trying to convince myself that I didn't have money to spend on them (I wasn't doing a very good job of it). Well saw your post regarding the Kindness kit and since it was already on my wish list (heehee)...I went shopping. The grab bag is sooooooooworth buying!!!!! To anyone who has read this far..."Go! shop! now!" LB

Thanks for the extra goodies for this kit. I have 1 grandson, 1 great-grandson who I can scrap for plus add their father & uncle (my 2 sons) into the layout. So no problem there. Again, loved your grab bag which I purchased before I had visited you today. (I think I posted the required info in the wrong section.) Love the colorful frames & those wild designs on your patterned papers. The paisley elements just hit the spot. My email listing is scbkim_at_gmail_ dot_com. Again, TFS.

I love the colors of your manly kits. Just put some flowers in them as well, so it can be used for girls. Or put in some neutral elements like tags or brads etc. I personly use flowers for Boys LO.
