OMG- WOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I was given the biggest surprise half an hour ago! I'd just got out the shower ( lol- yeah LATE this morning of ALL mornings) when I hear this voice shouting from the kitchen-

HEY OLD BAT- you dressed yet??-

OMG- it was DEON!! He drove through from Cape Town last night as a surprise!! And he didn't even slip up when I spoke to him on the phone last night! ROTFLMAO! I needed a *sanity call* and we chatted away and I heard the driving noise in the car- but he said he was on his way to visit someone he knew- BWAHAHAHA- Yeah I thought he meant in Cape Town- lol.

All I can say is with all the trouble with the downloads and store issues yesterday and this morning- this must be the best medicine I have had for stress ever-

Anyway I'm going to keep this short as the man is giving me grief by teasing me in my ear here-

As most of you know we are having a problem with the server cutting off before your downloads are finished ( it seems to be the big files)- we know about the issue and if you are having a problem with your orders-

PLEASE mail us and we will send you alternate links for your purchases. Unfortunately Murphy stuck his hand up at the wrong time again it seems! Murphy's law- don't you just hate him-lol. We're so sorry for the inconvenience this has caused- but I promise it was not something we wanted to happen!


My new kit is still 50% off at the moment- so grab it now- ( and yup if there is a problem with the downloads I will send you those links ASAP)- I just don't want you to miss the good bargain price!

And just look at these amazing LO's-

This stunner is from Croppy- Goodness I just LOVE the blending in this LO! It's GORGEOUS girl!


This beauty is from Jenni! I love how you used the acrylic typed bracket! ( yup that is in the kit too)- LOVE THE WHITE SPACE!

You all know that Beth who is on my CT team and we have all loved her freebie BB pages and freebies she makes us right?- AWW man- just look at this kit

This is Beths FIRST KIT at the store in DSO and it's STUNNING! And also 50% off!


And I did a LO for her too using it-


This is Nathan surfing in the rain and I loved the rain drops and puddles in this kit! So check it out in the store here.

Don't forget that the links to the huge COLLAB FREEBIE ( check yesterdays post) will be GONE on Sunday- SO GRAB EM ALL UP QUICK! And thanks sooo sooo much to all of you for you kind words and compliments! The girls are honestly awesome and we are THRILLED that everyone loves the kit so much! MWAH!

I promised you a *sampler -ADD-on* to my New Kit Softly Sweet-


Here it is. It has a beaded Alpha to play with too- Plus the dragon fly, doodled frame, ribbon and paper.

Well I better get off here before someone starts poking me in the ribs- LOL. Please don't forget the STORE SALE ENDS on the 12th!! TOMORROW at MIDNIGHT!- DON'T MISS IT;-) Sending love and hugs and many thanks Kim

Hey, Kim!

Going on vacation tomorrow, and our friend from Port Elizabeth is going to spend one of the two weeks with us! I'm downloading your LO to show her tomorrow: hope that's okay (will delete when she's seen it!). by the way, Nathan's story and pics about the bungie jumping had me holding my stomach! And what a wonderful surprise to have Deon show up, and you all clean and everything! Yippee! Now, try to stay injury free, OK? Wahahahahah!



Shannon said...

Waves to Dian - hooray for making Kim's day! :) The add-on is gorgeous too - love that kit! :)

Awwww I'm so glad you got some buddy-time with ur friend!

The next best thing to a visit with a good friend, is a SURPRISE visit with a good friend. This should make good fodder for upcoming blog 'stuffies' haha. I'm ducking for the 'fallout' already - CELEBRATE!

My Goodness, Beths kit is just gorgeous! The colors are PERFECT - this kit is going to be a big hit. What a clever idea! Yay for Beth!

I hope you don't have hole-poked ribses.

I've been cleannig up after a MASSIVE windstorm here... it was like one hour long, but wreaked havoc! Actually, my photos made it on the local news station again, IF you'd like to see. You have to watch the whole article or let it load up first before ff to the end of the article. My photos are at the end. You go to and look on July 10th for the Windstorm article.

Wellllll dearsie, gots to run.

huggins and lovins.

As soon as "Down for Store Maint." is over, I'm getting this kit. I'm praying the sale won't be over b/c there's so much I want to stock-up!!
Also, I am so plugging this on my blog because I am always happy whenever I buy something at DSO. You girls have never let me down and I thank you all for that!
