Shine On

Good morning, y’all.

Mom’s doing great.  She no longer needs PT, or the walker.  However, she still prefers to use it when she leaves the house, which is fine.  Whatever makes her feel safer and more secure.  She’s also well enough to start bitching about the lack of salt in her food.  Her doctor’s reply to that was “Tough.  Get used to it.”  The doctor is also talking about reducing her insulin.  They’ll be doing a bunch of blood work during her next appointment, and we’ll see how that goes.  Oddly, her eye doctor says there is no sign of diabetes in her eyes.  There are a few little blind spots in her right eye due to the stroke, so driving is a definite no-no, but no sign of diabetes.  It’s odd, and that’s something else we’ll be discussing with her regular doctor.

Anyway, I’ve found some time to play in PSP, and the result is the kit I’m post today, and one I’ll be posting next week.  They sort of grew from each other with similar color palettes.  Today’s kit is about spring.  It has warm, yet earthy, colors, lots of flowers, and cute little birds.

Shine On contains:

  • 19 papers
  • 10 frames
  • 3 frame clusters
  • 25 flowers
  • 8 birds
  • 3 curled ribbons
  • 7 journal arrows
  • 7 journal arrow stickers
  • 7 glitter tiles
  • 7 sequins
  • 7 gems
  • 1 alpha (upper- and lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols)


Here’s a better look at the papers:


The font I used for this alpha is Georgia by Matthew Carter.  This is a Microsoft font that usually comes with Windows.  If you don’t have for whatever reason, you can download it from the Fontzone.

Download links:  In full or in dial-up friendly pieces.

Next week, it’s summertime!  Here’s a peek:

  1. This kit is AWESOME !!!!! Got alil confused when unzipping but I figured it out :~} THANK YOU ;~} so much I just can`t wait to start play`n with it THANK YOU ;~} again..


  2. Thank you for your generosity; this is a beautiful kit! I, too, am on a salt-restricted diet, but here’s a couple of easy answers for flavor – 1) Morton’s Salt Substitute (potassium chloride instead of sodium chloride); 2) Penzey’s salt free spice blends. Mrs. Dash can’t hold a candle to these! She won’t know anything’s missing at all!


    1. We were going to try Morton’s but then we read the labels on her meds, one of which says “no salt substitutes.” So that’s out. I’ll have to look into Penzey’s, though. Thanks.
