Freebie of the Month AND kick-off of new Freebie line

Happy Holidays every one! I hope this finds you doing well and enjoying the 2014 Holiday season. I am, as I usually am at this time of year, hibernating and patiently waiting for the sweet sound of the birds songs, announcing that Spring has arrived.
A midst all the craziness that this time of year brings, I am making some changes to the GraphFreaks line. The new year will find us with an additional blog strictly for tutorials, using the GF tubes. So, stay tuned on that. 
Among a few changes, Some are happening right now. This months Freebie of the month is a special one. This post kicks off a series of 12 tubes that will be a complete Birth Stone set. For the next year, the 15th and the FOTM will highlight the stone for the next month.
So, That being said, The FOTM for December is: Garnet, the stone for January.
Just for fun, before I unveil her, Here are a few little known facts about the Garnet..
Did you know...The origin of the name garnet is derived from the Greek word "granatum" meaning "pomegranate seed" which reflects the shape and color of the crystals?  That garnets come in a vast range of natural colors and shades including pink, red, purple, orange, yellow, violet, green, black, brown and many shades of red and green? Or that garnet has long been thought to have healing powers, credited with improving every sort of ill health from heart palpitations to heart disease?

So, here is Garnet, the first in a year-long series.
I hope that you like this new line and that you stick around to collect all 12. 

Happy Holidays everyone! 
See ya next year!
