2012 CD Calendar

I am sorry that I have been neglecting my awesome friends here! Besides getting busy with the holidays like most people, I have been trying to play catch up after internet problems - I just got my second round of credits, this time a  month's worth of credit from Suddenlink for service outtages covering most of September and almost to the end of October. I have to say that I appreciated the bill credits, and the super customer service they had. The first tech could have found the problem if he had really put the effort in, but it was a dreary rainy day and he had been working outside in it for hours and I don't think it would have been safe for him to even try to get to the connector on the main line up the power pole with the bank being muddy and slippery, so I understand his unwillingness. Now I am doing my best to get back into mode with challenges, digital and paper, or even hybrid. I'm going to try making a Christmas card a day (wish me luck) and a couple digital challenges a week.

What better way to get in mode than a CD size calendar? Compact enough for any room of the house, and easy to modify with color and photos once I get the layout set up. And, I'm not the kind of person easily satisfied with simplicity, so while I used a template for a challenge, I modified it and also learned how to use masks WOOHOO! I finally got brave enough to step out of the box LOL.  Here is the calendar cover and credits for digital art follows it.



I thought about adding text but if I consider using this cover for multiple calendars to give to family and friends then I need to think of what would be multi-purpose and still personal. The awesome mask is by HollyAnn which you can find at GoDigitalScrapbooking as a set of two masks and currently is half price, but even full price is only $1.50 and they are worth it. I also stumbled upon some great tutorials for GIMP users. I needed to know how to use the mask, and voila! http://pascalea.com/blog/alphas-and-clipping-masks-gimp-tutorial-freebie/ She is also a fabulous designer and there is a free mask and word for beach photos with the tutorial.



For the year I used Autumn Blush Alpha by Marcie at Digital Design Den where I am a member and also got the Think Fall Kit as a daily download, both were free, and the alpha still currently is. DDD is a fantastic digital community to be a member of. 



The challenge was on Scrapping with Liz blog for the November blog template challenge. The template for the calendar covers were provided, but it was a new visit for me so I missed the page templates. I will be making my own pages for the months and a challenge of its own.


The photo of us is actually a still (screenshot) of a video we took on a vacation to Pipestem Resort here in WV. We were a little late for colors there as a very windy couple of rainy days took most of the leaves off the trees on the mountains but there were still plenty of colors to be seen in the lower valleys. I love living in the mountains and being north enough to have beautiful seasons!

Well, that about sums it up. I hope some of this was useful to you and you enjoyed visiting. I'd love to know if you followed any links and made use of the freebies I shared.

Many Blessings, Deborah/JoyfullyOrange

  7. Gdy przyjrzymy się nieco bliżej dziedzinie, którą jest rachunkowośc, będziemy mogli utwierdzić się w
    przekonaniu, iż ma ona wyznaczony dokładny cel w istniejącej gospodarce.
    Tak dokładnie właśnie to ta ma za zadanie wytworzenie prawdziwego obrazu sytuacji majątkowej,
    w której są wszystkie podmioty gospodarcze. Podmiotem zainteresowania tej dziedziny, którą będzie rachunkowośc, są także
    poszczególnie wydarzenia, które miały swój czas na rynku oraz
    działalności gospodarczej i jednostki, które biorą w nich czynny udział.
    Dobrze pamiętać, że w sumie każde takie
    zdarzenie finansowe może wpływać na sytuację całej gospodarki.

  8. Współcześnie rynek ofert rachunkowych nie może narzekać na brak sławy.
    To wszystko ze względu na fakt, że coraz więcej ludzi decyduje się na
    zarejestrowanie własnej działalności gospodarczej. Takie wyjście jest dla licznych ludzi bardzo interesujące, bo oczywiste jest, iż dobrze jest zostać szefem dla
    samego sieci. W rzeczywistości z prowadzenia własnej
    firmy wynika wiele obowiązków, które pociągają do odpowiedzialności każdego przedsiębiorcę.
    Przede wszystkim wówczas jeśli chodzi o podatki. Jednakowoż,
    wówczas gdy korzysta on z ewidencji profesjonalnego biura rachunkowego, to
    nie powinien się niczym martwić.

  9. Pewną pośród branży, jakie aktualnie zyskały bardzo ważną funkcję na gospodarczym rynku
    jest księgowość. To ona będzie odpowiedzialna za rejestrację zachodzących operacji transakcyjnych na rynku,
    które mogą być wyrażone w jednostkach pieniężnych.

    Ona też będzie przedmiotem zainteresowania wszystkich przedsiębiorców, jacy zdecydowali się na założenie własnej firmy.
    W końcu wszyscy z nich są zobowiązani do rozliczenia się z instytucjami
    państwowymi, jako część gospodarki krajowej.
    Ujmując ją jako element nauki można ją rozpatrywać
    na kilka różnych działów.

  10. Współcześnie rachunkowe biura nie muszą upominać się na małą liczbę zainteresowanych klientów.
    Przychodzą do takich głównie właściciele firm, jacy mają niewielkie działalności.
    Takich przedsiębiorców jest dzisiaj na rynku gospodarczym naprawdę sporo.
    Zakładając oraz obsługując samodzielnie działalność, nie można o wszystko zatroszczyć
    się osobiście. Mając to na uwadze korzystają oni z możliwości
    proponowanych na rynku, które są się naprawdę dobrym wyjściem.
    Pewną z branży, jaka zajmuje się obsługą takiej działalności gospodarczej jest konkretnie rachunkowość oferująca możliwości księgowe, jaka ma czuwać na prawidłowością rachunków w każdej działalności.

  11. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is valuable and all. But think about if you added some great visuals or videos to
    give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent
    but with pics and video clips, this blog could certainly be one of the
    very best in its niche. Terrific blog!
