I AM SHERLOCKED. Aren’t you?? Because if you’re not, then you really should go watch the BBC One’s modern twist on this classic hero. He’s freaking awesome. He’s said a lot of stuff that’s just hilarious, but this is one of the ones I can personally relate the most to. xD

*******************

Good morning everybody!! I was reading through some of Albert Einstein’s stuff the other night, & lemme tell you…. that guy has said some pretty amazing stuff. No joke! He was witty, funny, & far more clever than people even realise (which says a lot, considering how highly in esteem he’s held!) I actually had way over 10 quotes I was trying to decide between…I narrowed it down to 3 quotes, which I had fully intended on doing, but then fell asleep after #2, so…hooray? Haha! Well, you get two different ones today, but both quotes from Albert Einstein. <3

Albert Einstein if you can't explain it simply you don't understood it well enough 

 

I’m actually going to create a huge package of quotes from Albert Einstein that I think I might put up on Etsy or just post here, depending on how many I do. I’m thinking I’ll create different backgrounds for them, too, so they don’t all look the same! What do you guys think? 😀 See you back here tomorrow!!

Cheers!!

Dilly-dally
To waste time or procrastinate.
Shilly-shally
Fail to act resolutely or decisively; indecisive

Today I’ve selected one of my favourite quotes from FF: Advent Children (the sequel movie to FFVII, the game!) It’s simple, yet meaningful. Haven’t seen the movie? Here’s a little compilation:

Again, it’s a silly saying, just to let someone know they just need to get on with it, already!! GOSH, Napoleon!!!
[cough] In all seriousness, when I catch myself procrastinating, or making excuses to avoid doing something, I hear a voice in my head saying this, & I know I just gotta git to it! I’ve made it in two formats for you, one for printing & hanging vertically, or one for saving to your desktop as a wall paper or printing if you prefer horizontal. <3 Hooray!

I looooove this one sooooo, so, so much! What do y’all think?
Any ideas for a quote you’d like to see?

Cheers!!

Freebie Friday: Chalkboard Backgrounds!

free chalkboard background download from cheekygeeks blog freebie friday

I love working with blackboards lately, whether for real or digitally. When I work digitally, though, I don’t want any of those low-resolution clip art freebies that seem to be all over the place now, so I just made a mess of my own board & photographed it for a higher resolution background! (Hey, I may be late to the bandwagon, but I’m still gonna be high quality!)

Feel free to use these as you please; print them out for scrapbooking, make digital art, whatever! All I ask is that you do not include these as any part of package that you’re giving away or the like, so basically no giving them out as if they’re your own. Help keep the craft & blogging communities free of drama! Just point folks to this page where they can download their own.

Of course, if you use these to make anything, I would LOVE it if you shared that work with me! It’s neat seeing the resources I provide being used for so many wonderful projects!

Here are the freebies, with more details below!

These bad boys will be around 1600×2000 pixels each or 8″x10″. I made them to fit A4 paper with a bit of wiggle room. If something isn’t showing correctly, or you’re having issues with the resolution, let me know & I’ll get it fixed ASAP. Just click the individual image to open it in a new page, & right click>save as…!

Remember, you can use these for anything, so long as you don’t give them away as-is as if they’re you’re own, & I’d LOVE to see what awesome stuff you guys make with these!! Feel free to share this page with your friends, so they, too, & make awesome stuff!!

Cheers!!

Freebie Friday: Blog Planner 2015!

Freebie Friday Valentines 2015

You may recall when I made that super cute (& Sevi glitter-inspired) set of monthly calendars last year as a freebie. Well, this year, I’ve been thinking about a blog planner (or any sort of planner, really…) with notes pages, monthly portions, & lots of other goodies..!!

cheekygeeks calendar monthly 2014

(sings) Don’t you…..forget about meeee….!! :'(

So I started making my own “Blog Planner”…I had originally intended on making it for all of 2015-2016, but it turned out to be a bigger task than I could accomplish right now, what with all the goodies I wanted to add. So today I’m offering you all a slimmed down version, just calendar with a Notes page for the rest of 2015. (The title page shows 2015-2016…forgive me!!! -wails-)

I’ve really been in a black/white/grey/yellow mood lately, so that’s the colour scheme. I created this bad boy using a combination of Excel & the Rhonna free app on my phone…madness, I tell you!!! Check it out & let me know what you think!

Click it for the .pdf to print your own!!

I printed mine out front & back in duplex mode, long side. I punched some holes in it & plan on popping it in my 3-ring binder at home! It’s super cute, y’all. <3 Here are a few more shots:

Obviously, the watermark won’t be on the actual .pdf!

For 2016 I plan on going all out, with notes sections after every month, each month as a full calendar plus weekly sections, to-do sections, & more! Feel free to leave me any suggestions on what you’d love to see, & even what theme you’d like! I’m thinking robots….. (of course…)

Until Monday…
Cheers!!
