Before anything else, here's an Oween freebie sampler pack for all of you:

Download Oween freebie via Mediafire: (link)

This free pack contains a "sampling" of my Oween Mini Kit (available here) as well as the Oween Doodles  for Commercial Use freshly uploaded at STS. I placed the files in the folders each appropriately tagged either as CU or PU.

The sign and paper is for personal use while the layered .psd spider and its lineart version are both for commercial use. Spidey came from Oween Doodles for CU pack:

Available at STS (link) for a low price!

This pack holds 20 files total- 8 layered, COLORED, Photoshop (.psd) files and the rest are its lineart or outline versions in .png format along with a bonus duo of creepy, mangly tree and bat. The colored, layered Photoshop files are easy to re-color using clipping masks.

If you don't know how to color or customize these doodles, you ca find a simple tutorial I made here and here.

This pack completes my Oween series for Halloween. If you missed yesterday's post (just one post down) then here again are the previews of Oween Mini Kit:

 Buy it at STS (link)

 and Oween Element Pack (for S4O/S4H):

Buy it at STS (link)

Although I might be a bit late with these Halloween stuff considering that most of you are probably done with your Halloween-themed projects. But for some of you who, like me, procrastinate to the nth degree, then hopefully this pack will get you going!

Now for the schtuff...

I made those pillow boxes I showed in my previous post using a free template I found online. I'll try to see if I can share them here in my next post so you can print some out yourselves. They're so easy to make! And it can become quite addicting. If only my my printer's (Epson Photo R230) ink isn't as expensive, I'd be making loads of these babies!

My friend Pom (currently enjoying South Africa, and I say that with a touch of harmless envy!) has posted an oh-so-very-cute alpha set on her blog which she created for my I Dream of Fall kit. The alpha set comes with an arrow and some screwheads on woodplank but Pom also made a version without the screwhead. The set is really super cute! You must absolutely need to download it if you still haven't.

Arianna T. sent me an email a couple of days ago and has been so kind to allow me to share a layout she did using my Weathered By Time dates pack at ZigZag Scraps:

She used the shabby dates on this adorable card she made for her friend's birthday:

Made by Arianna T. using WBT Dates Pack by Rachness Designs and Raspberry Road's cluster frame

Thank you Arianna for sharing this with me! It's really nice to see how my stuff is being used. Like a warm cup of chocolate in a rainy day.

By the way, Weathered by Time Dates Pack is ok for S4H/S4O.

Now, banking on the nice feedback I got over my handwriting, I decided to "handwrite" my logo. I felt the need for a logo facelift since my previous logo wasn't really reflective of my style. I'm more doodly, whimsical and playful. No matter what I do, or try to change my style to sort of fit in to the trend, they still come out looking doodly and whimsical. I won't go into this right now, because this topic would need a post of its own hehe.

Anyway, I just wanted to say that I will be..ummm...RAK'ing people here in my blog by doodling their names. Every week, starting this coming Sunday, I'll open the lines for this RAK and randomly choose a max of 5 persons who would like to see their names doodled.Once I've picked 5 names (or less, depending on my sked for that week), I'll email you your doodled names before I open the lines again the following Sunday.

Those whose names have been picked and doodled, you can't join the next round of RAK for this.

Need I say this? Since it's a RAK, of course, it's for free with no strings attached. It's just my way of giving. It's up to you to consider a PIF (pay it forward). But again, no strings attached.Just wanted to give you all a heads up on this.

PS- How do I get my freebies posted over at Ikeagoddess' blog? Do I need to sign up for it or something like that, similar to Digifree?

I have left my blog address in a comment at Ikeagoddess and let her know I had some freebies available. I shouldn't really encourage this since then EVERYONE will know how awesome your doodles are! :D

Hi Rach!!

Same as Christina, I've also posted comments in IkeaGoddess's blog letting her know that I put a freebie in my blog. Then I would cross my fingers and reluctantly go to bed. Sometimes it works, you know. :)

I'm back in BKK, hoorah! Will write to you now, my girl.

You know that this post's permalink reads like this, huh?

Then why do I only see "...+ schtuff" on the header and what's with Julia Roberts anyway? Just curious.

I actually got a lot to do now but not in a mood for anything. (Read my mail and you'd know why.) So I thought I'd come running around in your blog instead. :D

@Christina: I did that (leave a comment in her blog) but you won't have anything to worry about coz she didn't pick my freebie up! Now, not sure if I'm happy or sad about that hehe...

@Anonymous: You're welcome!

@Lainey: Thanks and you're welcome! Not sure about the high and dry, more like drowning here with wedding planning.

@Simply Sarah : Thanks! I went and left a comment in her blog but she didn't pick up the freebie. But it's ok, wasn't really expecting that she would.

@Pom: Hmmm...I should have crossed my fingers too! Maybe that woulda done the trick hehe...Check your email.

@twoboyzoo: You're so much welcome!
