More free goodies for ya!

This personalizable tag would be great as a gift tag with a simple hold punch and a ribbon or some raffia to tie it on with . Or laminate it and made a funky luggage tag!

These 2 can be shrunk to use as placecards or enlarged as notecards.

School Days Freebies!

So my goal is to put up some digital freebies every week. I know I LOVE sites that offer fun digital goodies and since I figure now I've got a pretty large collection of digital kits why not design them myself and offer them to you guys we well! So I hope you guys enjoy these designs and if you use them let me know, I'll feature your project on my blog!

Fun School Bus:

For the sample version I used some of the sassy girls from my clinic as models :)

School Days cluster frame:
Ezra's actually baking cookies but I didn't have any pics of him reading or coloring.

Cute freebies!

Thought I'd share some amazing and fun crafts with you guys. I'm in LOVE with this Harry Potter doll (go to for pattern and directions) and look forward to the rest of the crew coming along as well. I don't sew at all but for this I would try my best and maybe just sneak some hot glue and iron on fabric adhesive.

Here's one from I'm in love with this site and her amazing illustrations. Here are some free printable gift tags for your Christmas goodies!

There are more gift tags but my computer isn't letting me upload them for some reason. Go and check out the blog to get them.

Free Printables!!!

I finally scanned in these vintage childrens' playing cards that my mom bought me at a garage sale for $0.50!! I saw the "Animal Rummy" cards on sale on Amazon for $25.00 so I think she got a good buy! There are so many ways you can use these images, especially if you are good with photoshop and can edit out the wording. I didn't scan the entire decks just one of each image. If you're interested in getting the entire deck please comment me and I'll scan the rest in. Also I appologize for them being crooked but it is my first time scanning(I know I'm lame). You should be able to just click on each image and save the photo as a jpg. Enjoy!

Price Increase...

Just to let you guys know that I have increased my custom blog design prices to $50.00 for an ENTIRE blog design. Lately I have been receiving lots of requests which is GREAT but they are getting more and more involved and it may take me 2 days just to make a header. Also I don't charge extra for all the editing so I decided to increase my prices to help cover some of the cost for my time and also the digital design elements that I have to purchase.
Thanks for your continued support of Adopt Africa Designs!

Another great giveaway!

The Bricker Family is doing a huge giveaway to help raise funds for their Ethiopian adoption. I recently made a custom blog for Jessie and she asked me to donate to her giveaway. I will be giveing away a FREE custom blog design and an Adopt Africa magnet. So click on the button above and go to her blog to enter for a chance to win!

Are you looking for a way to keep everyone's Christmas wishes in one place that's easy to update??? Well I know for years our family had made last minute frantic calls back and forth trying to find out what this person or that person wants for Christmas. So my hubby asked me to create a blog where everyone could upload their "wish lists" in an organized way. Click on the link below to see what I created for our family. If you are interested in a Wish List blog of your own the cost is $15.00. Feel free to contact me with any questions!

Computer is out of commission for now...

I just wanted to post that my computer is currently at the "doctor" and hopefully will be back up and working in the next 2 weeks. I appologize for the delay and inconvenience. I can't wait to get back to work on custom designs and will let everyone know just as soon as it's working again.

Check out this blog!

A fellow AWAA adoptive family contacted me a last week about designing some necklaces for a fundraiser to benefit the kiddos at Kind Hearts and Trees of Glory, the 2 care centers that we sponsor kids at in Ethiopia. The necklaces are precious and all proceeds will go toward purchasing shoes for the kiddos there. Please visit Samantha's blog by clicking on the image above. She's an 11 year old girl trying to make a difference and I just love that :)

Welcome to my new blog! I have decided to create a blog devoted solely to my digital design. As many of you know, I started creating "bloggy bling" as a way to fundraise for our next adoption. Because of the large numbers of people interested and designs created I decided to have a place where I could post all of my designs/portfolio so that hopefully my little buisness will grow and grow while also allowing our family and friends to be able to read our family blog w/o seeing other families' prototype designs for their blog buttons/headers/etc.
I hope to be doing some designs for your really soon! Thanks for visiting.

Happy blogging!
