Free Video Game Download Today UnReal World 3.14

UnReal World 3.14
     Today's licensed free game sounds like it'll be like travelling through time! It's sounds great for RPG (role playing game) aficionados or video gamers in general.
     But from the desccription it sounds like it would be a great fun add-on to lessons about the Iron Age, Finland, old-time survival skills (and homesteading now!) such as cookery and hideworking, and history or geography lessons. So it might be a fun reward for homeschoolers and classroom students alike.
     But hurry if you want the full version for free because it'll be free until midnight.
     According to Game Giveaway of the Day - UnReal World 3.14: "UnReal World, or UrW, is a unique graphical roguelike RPG taking place in the Far North long, long ago. It brings you a realistic game world rich with historical atmosphere in which northern folklore, knowledge and way of life play an important part. The atmosphere and game features are highly original and compelling. The world of the game is based on the ancient Finland in the late Iron Age.

As a member of one of the nine different cultures you’ll enter a very realistic and enchanting game world:

find excitement in surviving everyday life and the quest for success in the harsh ancient wilderness;
play freely or complete various game tasks in a huge randomly generated world;
skill-based system including dozens of skills from COOKERY to HIDEWORKING;
keep in touch with the indigenous spirit world and the supernatural guardians of nature;
packed with intuitive graphics and pictures, original music and sounds."

I love Alaska.

Happy 50TH Wedding Anniversary Maman And Papa

Photo altered digitally into 12x12 with various software painted etc.
     Since I'm broke as usual, lol, there will be no huge party for the occasion, like I hear many people do for their parents. Nevertheless, my parents are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. Isn't that amazing in this day and age? They're not into big shindigs anyhow, so I'll try not to feel bad I can't do more for them.
     My "real life" crafting ability seemed to leave me this week too due to assorted traumas. But my digital creative muse was in the house, so instead I created bunches of art suitable for framing or putting in a scrapbook instead for them.
     The one above I thought I'd share with you. I cropped a great photo I love of them. Then I spent some time playing with it and altering it with various software I own, from oil painting it to adding various borders, frames and wording.
     I also gave them my voice singing a funky anniversary song, which always makes them laugh:
(Sung to the tune of  the galloping-type song they play when a cowboy is going fast on his horse:)
Ha ppy A nni ver sa ry,
Ha ppy A nni ver sa ry,
Ha ppy A nni ver sa ry,
HA ppy Anni ver sary.

May you have many more loving years together, my great parents.

Revised And Easier to Download Free 8x8inch PU Strawberry "Strawshabby Chic" Digital Download Scrapbook Paper

Add caption
Part of the All The World Is Art "Strawshabby Chic" Digital Collection

     I've been thinking about it and noticed I've had tons of visitors come visit this blog post wanting the original freebie, I imagine, but having trouble requesting it through the blog comment fashion.
     So then I realized if I placed the actual page here without watermark, you can download it directly by clicking on the photo above. PLEASE If you know anybody else who would also like a copy for their own personal use, please send them here to this link so they can download it themselves. PLEASE do not give it to them directly yourself. (If you like my design, I'd appreciate a comment below.) Keep posted because I'll be offering some strawberry kits soon, including a huge one!

For more info/details, check out my article from the other day:
This photo is the watermarked with a version of my web logo
 that of course won't show on the file you receive,
and is the small web version, unsuitable for printing.
@Joan McCray (All The World Is Art) 


     Yes, I've had some huge doozies of challenging events in my life, lately. But sometimes creating stuff helps take my mind off some of the trauma for a little while, lol. So I've been designing a "Berry Fun Strawberry Festival" digital download scrapbook kit for your pleasure.
     For this page of the kit, I took a photograph of strawberries and included both vintage plus other art I purchased. I altered all of them and designed the paper using 2 different kinds of design software. (Did you notice the strawberries I added on the balloons? Fun, huh? lol)
     I'm hoping you'll agree the paper might look cool printed on nice textured or plain cardstock. If you want it smaller than 12x12, just change it to 8x8 or smaller in your printer settings.
     I was thinking it would be cool to either use a hobby knife to make a slit inside the basket on your page to add photos and festival memorabilia, or behind the basket if you prefer.
     I will keep you posted about many more parts coming soon for this kit :)
     This project was inspired by a wonderful group of people on the forums on, considering the prevalence of Strawberry Festivals this time of year. 
     They are receiving the kit soon but meanwhile I thought I would share this first page with them and you, for you to print out or use digitally in your own scrapbook for personal use only.
     (If you know anybody who would like their own copy, please send them to this website :) with a link to this page. Please don't offer the file or paper for free to others directly yourself or by giving forwarding them the email I send you. )
     This photo shown here above is the watermarked small web version of the paper of course, unsuitable for printing, lol. But I'll email you a nice high quality 12x12 jpeg version you can print out or use for your digital or hybrid scrapbooking, card, or craft.
     The only way I can figure out how to get it to you is if you leave a comment on this post below and include your email (which nobody will see but me and I promise I don't spam: let me know if you'd like more info on scrapbook, arts and crafts stuff in future or not in case I have a newsletter or sign up for my blog feed or feedburner newsletter subscription on the right...)
     Have a berry sweet week and enjoy!
