Spring has Sprung at Ponytails Designs

The days have been short and dreary, the nights cold and long. The rain and snow have been falling for so long that it seems endless. Sometimes you feel like you'll go mad if you have to spend one more day indoors looking out the window at such miserable sights. And then just as you think you can't bear it for one more day, a miraculous thing occurs. You see a small bud of green on a plant, or that first robin appears. Suddenly the tress are abloom in soft pink flowers all around and you know that finally... Spring has Sprung!



Natasha has three coordinating freebies for you. The first you can pick up on her blog:


This next one is available on her Facebook Page...

Newsletter subscribers will be able to pick up these sweet little hearts...

Enjoy and have a great weekend!

Ponytails Designs Brings You Boyish Charm

Any mother of a little boy knows that they have a knack for getting into trouble... and an equally good knack for getting out of it! A little smile and a wink and suddenly you've forgotten why you were mad in the first place! Little boys (and often the not-so-little ones too) have a certain charm that melts the heart, and endears you to them for good. Ponytails Designs has created a fun new kit for the GingerScraps Buffet that will have you scrapping those boy pictures in no time... the good, the bad, and the oh-so-charming ones!

Hello You from PonyTails Designs

Sometimes a kit idea will come and it all just clicks in to place. The idea, the colours, the theme... this was one of those kits for Natasha, inspired by a little colour card from Design Seeds. A bright, colorful kit with glints of gold, Hello You can help you tell someone you love that they mean the world to you.


Inspiration From the Team

Happy Valentine's Day!

New Releases by Ponytails Brighten Your Day

Ponytails Designs has created some new goodies for the first of the month.  First off is The Bright Side, which is part of the SNP Bits N Pieces.  Each part is only $1 through the 7th.

In the infamous words of Eric Idle (from Monty Python, in case you're not a superfan)...

Some things in life are bad
They can really make you mad
Other things just make you swear and curse
When you're chewing on life's gristle
Don't grumble, give a whistle
And this'll help things turn out for the best...
And... always look on the bright side of life...

As silly as this song may be, the words are true.  There's always a bright side.  It's there if you choose to see it.  I personally prefer to live life with the glass half full and silver linings under all of my clouds.  When you're down, there's no place to go but up!

All that brightness is just screaming to be scrapped, don't you think?  Natasha has just the thing to help with that.  She's created two template sets for the GingerScraps Buffet.  These templates feature two photo spots and a whole lot of layers!  Can you handle them?  

Here are some gorgeous pages from the team that show off these new goodies...

Natasha is also giving away a little freebie that coordinates with The Bright Side.  Head to her blog HERE to pick it up!  

  Natasha is also hosting the Daily Download on the Scraps N Pieces blog this month.  Go back each day to collect a gorgeous new kit!

Last but not least, here is a lovely cluster I made using Natasta's The Bright Side kit! Click the preview to download. 

Happy Scrapping!

New Goodies from Nat's Desk! Ponytails Designs New Releases

Cold hands, a double-double, and some news... sounds like a typical Canadian morning doesn't it? Nat often hits her local Tim Horton's as she runs out to do errands, and if she's lucky she has time to sit and read a newspaper (or check Facebook on her phone, as the case may be!) But that's not what we're talking about today! ponytails_chwh_desk   ponytails_blog BNP 
 First off, Natasha has a new kit to show you, which is part of this month's Bits and Pieces at SNP. Cold Hands, Warm Hearts... it's a saying many of us have heard as long as we can remember. It great because it evokes the fun of the snowy season! We build snowmen, have snowball fights, or dig tunnels through the snow. We wear mittens, scarves, and hats lovingly knitted by moms and grannies that keep us warm in our adventures. Grab hold of the fun with Cold Hands Warm Hearts! There's still time to grab the parts while they're $1 a piece! (Images are linked. Full kit will be available Jan. 8th)

New Release: Delicate Memories by Janece Suarez Designs

Happy holidays Y'all!!

 I know that I haven't actually posted anything in a long while for/from myself. I do apologize. My daughter has been quite ill for the past few months. I had my latest mini ready before then but didn't have it packaged, and my website was acting up. I just said, "Oh Bother!" with the mess and focused on my baby girl. She's not really a baby, but she's the only daughter we have, and she has plenty of mental and learning disorders, so the hospital stay wasn't the most fun we have had. She's now on her second medication. It's for maintenance so she is doing better. Yay!

I was also diagnosed with a heart condition in the middle of the rest of our stressful issues, and did my own bit of time in the hospital. So while I may of have a lot of things in my head, designing hasn't been one of them, I am sad to say. Designing lifts my spirits and frees my soul and in all honestly, I have either been completely exhausted from caring for my daughter or completely exhausted from trying new medications for myself. I've done a lot of round the clock nursing interspersed by falling in bed and sleeping like a rock. It's been hard.

So here is your "Delicate Memories" mini. It seems like we always come across a few during the holidays. Someone we miss, something very precious that we received as a gift, just something that makes our eyes glisten with unshed tears, and cause us to laugh and dash them away with the back of a hand after a moment. Treasure those memories, those moments. Someday, no one will know why that photograph or that tea cup, or the scent of the wreath made you remember something so dear  that you nearly cried and did laugh.

I'm working on another mini, to hopefully join this one in a few days.

 Happy holidays, friends, and happy scrapping!
