Happy Halloween!

Since it’s Halloween, I’m not going to post a separate day 3 of my Apple Cider Vinegar cure. So far I’m feeling great, but I do have some coughing spells. The sinus pressure is 100% gone! I have to work tonight so I wanted to make sure I posted a Happy Halloween to everyone and hope that everyone has a wonderful evening. I’m going to try and do something special with my daughter tonight.

Free Printable-Hearts Beat The Same SVG Cut File

I’m about 90% better and trying to get back to work. Happy Halloween! I have to work my part-time job tonight and I really hope that it doesn’t kick my butt. Actually, I’m a bit busy today. My boyfriend brought home a new car for us and we are spending most of the day running some errands. There is a Halloween event tonight at our neighborhood church. I’m hoping we get to go tonight.

In the meantime, I’m doing my best to get better because as you know tomorrow is the start of a big day. I’m publishing my short stories from November to February daily! 🙂 Sometimes 2-3 short stories per day.

I’m very much ready to get started on my writing journey.

 

Alright, so here is your free printable.

What I love about Monstroid-Template Monster Theme

What I love about Monstroid-Template Monster Theme

Back in early October, I received a free license thanks to the lovely people at Template Monster to test out the highly coveted Monstroid theme. I remember when the theme was first released, it had so many awesome features and I was dying to have it. I never purchased in the beginning due to learning that it was built on the cherryframework. I had problems with the framework in the past, but I decided to give this theme a chance. You all know how much I LOVE Divi, so using the Monstroid theme was quite a change for me. It was also a change that was much needed.

MotoPress Page Builder

The page builder comes absolutely free with the theme along with lifetime updates. I for one love this page builder and to know that it’s been included with the theme makes it all more awesome. I do prefer the Divi Page builder, but this is only because their front end page builder is easiest to use out of all the page builders I’ve used, including the visual composer.

gourmetcuisineChild Themes

Monstroid comes with over 15 child themes to choose from. So if you don’t want to start from scratch you have some awesome premade child themes to choose from. I decided to use the 1-click demo installation of the Gourmet Cuisine theme. The installation was quick and loaded without any issues.

Click here to view the Gourmet Cuisine Child Theme

Woocommerce Compatible

Now with Divi, I do love that their framework is woocommerce compatible, but with Monstroid, it’s not just compatible, it’s more efficient. The shop pages look more professional. With Divi, it seems more bulky and requires more fine tuning in the css code to get the theme to blend with anything else.

Extensions:

The Monstroid theme comes with many extensions. This is a good thing and a bad thing. I say this because you don’t want your WordPress theme bulked down with so many plugins. I would recommend that you use only the extensions needed for your site. However, it’s awesome to have access to so many much needed extensions. You will not get this many extensions with the Divi Theme.

Page Speed

I ran into no issues regarding page speed on the Monstroid Theme. The theme code seamless and the pages loaded quickly. The pages also run quite quickly with the Divi Theme, but I’ve noticed some lag from time to time with using Divi’s built in Slider.

Support

While I never filled out one support ticket, I am fully aware of Template Monsters awesome support team. Any questions asked will be answered quickly and sometimes on the spot. The Template Monster team does anything they can do to help you.

Price

I think this is where the Monstroid theme falls short and also why I never made that impulse purchase. For a single license it’s $79.00. That means you can only use the theme on one domain. Each theme installation requires activation. For a Developers license it’s $118.00. With Divi, the price is $69.00-$249. The difference is Divi holds yearly membership and you get access to all of their themes and plugins. For $249 and sometimes heavily discounted, you can get lifetime access to Divi and all of the themes and plugins from Elegant Themes. With Elegant themes, even if you only purchased their $69.00 membership, you get unlimited access. You can install the Divi theme on thousands of domains if you wished.

However, the price for a theme license is fair. If you visit places such as Themeforest, or Creative Market, you’ll end up paying the same amount for access to all of the features you see in Monstriod and probably more. I have also in the past seen the Monstroid theme appear in deal sites such as Appsumo at prices you can’t believe. Keep your eye out for the sales if you need to, they pop in randomly.

Cons

My biggest gripe about the Monstroid theme was the activation. When installing the theme, you couldn’t really activate and use any of the features until you put in your license code. Now I understand this, but I found it quite annoying that I had to search for the license code in order to use the theme. Usually most WordPress themes will install without a hitch and you’ll need your license code to receive updates. That was not the case with the Monstroid theme. It’s pretty much locked until you activate your license code.

Overall

Overall, I would definitely recommend this theme for developer use. Their child themes are extremely professional and the page builder is very easy to use.

Apple Cider Vinegar Cure Day 2

Apple Cider Vinegar Cure Day 2

Wow, I woke up this morning with clear sinuses. I’m still having coughing spells and OMG they are GROSS! The stuff that’s coming up–let’s not even talk about it. I’m also very sleepy and my muscles are aching, but I’m fighting back hard as rails to get this cold kicked by the first.

 

Today I only did one dose of Apple cider vinegar and I’ve been drinking mostly water, orange juice, and apple juice. I also had a bowl of soup today.

Hopefully I will have this fully kicked in another day or two. 🙂

Oh my, this Apple Cider Vinegar is working big time on my cold. I’ve only had it since Friday. Usually when I get sick, I’m sick for almost two weeks before I actually start feeling better. The only downside, I feel like my energy has been completely wiped out! I have a ton of things that I need to get done. One thing especially is to work on these SVG file cuts, get my first short story published, and start working on another. That way, if I have a bad day I can take the break I need and still meet my publishing goals.

Looks like I’ll be resting today.

Alright, so here is your free printable.

Apple Cider Vinegar To Cure Sinus Infection Day 1

Apple Cider Vinegar To Cure Sinus Infection Day 1

Okay so I thought I would make a quick blog post not only for a reminder that this method actually works, but also to let others know that you can use this drink to help kick a cold.

So far I’m on day one. I’ve had 3 doses of hot Apple Cider Vinegar with Water and Lemon Juice.

I’m using two table spoons of Apple Cider Vinegar per 8ozs of water. I add a few drops of lemon juice to give it a little flavor.

Let me be clear: THIS TASTES HORRIBLE, but I manage to finish it.

So far, my sinuses have cleared, but I have a horrible cough.

Of course I would get sick right at the end of the month, the most busiest time for me. I hate it I really do, but what can I do about it? I’ll definitely have to take some time to rest and pray I recover quickly. I was looking online for some natural remedies to kick a cold/sinus infection and there is one thing in particular that I have in my house.

Apple cider vinegar. I’m going to give it a try and post my results later on this week to see how I do. I have some off days, but it looks like I’ll be resting up.

I’m all caught up and thank goodness for that! My took my daughter to another Halloween Festival and she was so afraid of all the people. It made me really sad. I have to get her out more and socializing with others. I know this is just a phase, but I would love to see her playing with other kids more. Also, I took some time to myself and braided my hair. Goodness, I have been walking around for the last two months looking like a hurricane.

It feels good to finally do something for myself and actually enjoy time with my little girl. She’s so sweet and loves her mommy. The feeling I get from that is amazing. I wish I could explain it, but I can’t seem to form the words.

I’m getting all mushy so…..

Up late, trying to catch up on all of my blog posts.  My daughter was sick and it scared the heck out of me when her fever hit 101.8. Ah, the joys of being a mom. Two doses of Tylenol and two lukewarm baths and she was up the next morning driving me nuts. I’ll say this. I’d rather have her ripping the house to shreds than being sick. Last thing I want it to see my baby hurting.

So now that she’s back well I’m getting to work on my personal projects and getting my blog back up to speed.

Back at you again with another free SVG Cut File. I have been busy working on my personal projects so I don’t have to worry about them next month. The good news is that I’m finally getting some things done! I can’t wait to start showing off my new designs.

My little Sophie has been such a character this week. My boyfriend’s cousin just gave birth to her daughter and it really has me thinking about the special bond I have with Sophie. She is so sweet and loving and loves kisses and hugs. She’s my baby I love her so much. I know when she gets older she’ll definitely branch off and do her own thing, but I hope that the bond we have will continue to grow into something spectacular.

I just looked at my blog post count and it’s almost 200 posts! Wow! That is amazing. I really hate to blog so this is an amazing accomplishment. I’m dedicated to this blog and I try to make sure there is at least one free printable loaded per day, but there are times when my life gets so crazy that I can’t even get to my blog or I’m too exhausted mentally to get it done.

One gripe I’m having is how some Etsy sellers are getting a little NUT SO about SVG Cut Files. I have a list I generated myself of over 1,000 quotes. I am almost 100% certain that someone else has thought of these quotes before or used them. If you haven’t trademarked (and I’m not talking about a pending application), then suck it and shut up. My goodness, the Etsy Sellers group on Facebook is ridiculous. It’s such a shame that designers cannot create a unique design without being called a thief.

Alright, enough of that. I also have some very good news. Starting today at the end of each blog post there will be a request form. Send me your quote requests and I will make them for you during my free time. I’m not taking any special design requests, but if you fill out the form with the quote you want me to use, I’ll make the design and list it on my blog in several different variations of the quote so that you can use.

The best part of the requests section is I’m allowing Commercial Usage will all of my quote designs. 🙂 And it’s free of charge. You don’t have to pay me unless you want to. I’m doing this to gain followers and support others who would like to pursue their own endeavors as a small business owner.

I’m in the process of rebranding my site. You’ll probably see some new designs pop up over the next couple of days. I have some off days from my part-time job to get this moving this week and I’m excited about it. With Halloween on the approach I’ve also been very busy making sure that Sophie gets out more. My city as well as others in the Metro Detroit area have been hosting Trunk or Treats and other Halloween festivities galore, so I have been taking her out and making sure she collects that free candy.

With my new brand, you’ll start to see more professional uploads of my free daily printables. It’s the end of the month so I want to make sure I have all this done before my Nov. 1 writing challenge begins. I also have been working hard on my WordPress Themes that I’ll also be releasing soon to the public.

I’m hoping for some passive income so I can say “bye-bye” to my part-time job and get back to what I love to do and that’s working from home. 🙂
