Well, better a day late than not at all! I had so many problems with my email @ Divine Digital that I didn't post a texture yesterday because without my email working I can't notify my customers that a freebie is up waiting for them. So, now that my cyndi@divinedigital.com email is working, I have a freebie! Two actually, since today is also my day with "Harvest." I'll post the "Harvest" freebie tonight and the texture right now.

Now, today's freebie texture is a photo I took while taking my stroll through the woods on Saturday. This is a close-up of a leaf. Keep the color when you use it and it will give a warm hue to your paper. That is how I would use it. It is 12x12, 300dpi. It is commercial use friendly (yes, designers can make paper from this texture and sell it) and please download the file don't just right click and save because the photo here is downsized for blogger. It is not the full resolution and quality you need! Just click on the image to download. Please don't send the download link around the world via the web---send people here to download it. I appreciate any comments and feedback, too.

And, since my boys are napping and I have a few minutes while the texture uploads to 4shared, I want to discuss something fun---clouds. I am one of those people that will probably break her leg some day or fall down a well because I'm walking around looking up at the glorious blue sky when the clouds are at their puffiest, most marshmallow like existence. Do you know what I mean? The other day I was driving around running errands and I called my husband and told him to go outside and look at the clouds because they were just so amazing. One minute the sky was dark, dark blue with white, white clouds. The next it was bright light blue with dark clouds. He thought I lost my mind, didn't understand what was so great about the clouds. Same with my friend, Cassie. I was meeting her for coffee and on the way I called her and told her I might be late because the clouds were unbelievable and I had to pull over and take pictures (yes, camera is always in the car so is the battery charger for the camera). She still thinks I am crazy. Well, you be the judge. Here are some photos I took at a farm I pass on the way into town. Leave a comment if you like and tell me what you like about clouds. Seriously, I want to know if I am the only one who goes around commenting on the clouds and making a fool out of myself (I guess).

And now, this is a little morbid, but as I am approaching my 41st birthday in two weeks, I can't help but think about death. I know, I'm weird. Anyway, during my walk in the woods on Saturday at World's End State Park, I came across this grave. And it was this HUGE rock with a brass plaque on it in the middle of the woods. How cool is that? When I go, I want that. I want a grave in the woods with a big huge, beautiful rock on top of my ashes (have to be cremated, can't stand worms). I want to have the fall leaves strewn all about me. I want to the serenity of the stream's running water (not that I'll hear it) and the peacefulness of being "in" or "one" with nature. So here is the grave I found....It was so old that I couldn't read who he or she was that is buried there but I could make out that it was a grave because the dates were there and it goes back to the early 1800s. It is the only grave I ever stumbled across in the woods that didn't belong to a four legged friend of mine or someone else. So it was cool. And of course I had to take a picture.....

Okay, the boys are waking up so the fun and morbidity is over....I'll be back tonight with the "Harvest Day 17" freebie.

And we're having a "Harvest" chat tonight at Divine Digital----hope you can make it. Starts at 9:00 pm EST.

Love the freebie commercial use pic and can't wait to try it out. Thank you!

And no, you're not crazy for taking pictures of clouds, lol. It shows you've got a good eye for everything around you.

Thank you for the cool texture freebie.
No, you aren't the only cloud fan. I take tons of cloud pictures and can sit and watch them for ages. Your pictures are gorgeous!
That grave in the woods is really neat. I would want to be buried someplace like that too.

I'm a cloud-dreamer too. However, my pictures are nowhere near as awe-inspiring as yours. But, that just means I have to keep at it! Looking forward to the Harvest freebie. You're the best-est, Cyndi!

How funny, I was just outside staring at the sky thinking, "it's been a long time since I've taken any cloud pictures. I should go get my camera and go for a walk." Glad I'm not the only one who thinks these things. By the way, I love your blog. Your photos are just amazing and inspire me to take more and more of my own. Also thank you for the wonderful freebies.

I love your cloud photos. I have a friend that is always taking cloud photos but she sees angels after she looks at them. And many of them do have angels.

Your textures are terrific and I enjoy all your photos

Thank you so much for the texture freebie! I love it. Also - I see clouds as possible brushes on my LOs - so I must be crazy too!

Gosh, it's so nice to meet someone else who walks around looking at the sky. I do that all the time. I absolutely love your cloud photos. And the photo of the grave is beautiful. How interesting to find such a headstone in the woods. Thank you so much for your blog today.
