Grab that coffee and cold drink again- lol, WARNING- long post


OH MY WORD- WE hit one million hits yesterday!(check my counter in the left hand side bar)! WOOOPIE DOOOO!

How cool is that. It's something that I actually didn't even think of until one of my dear CT members a few weeks ago sent me a mail to say- HEY, you seen your counter!!!! OMG, I'm so excited about it- nuts hey??

I'm sooo THANKFUL for all your visits. If it wasn't for YOU, I wouldn't be here at all -

so I say THANK YOU for-----( *no not the music* this time, hee hee, you singing it with me now??)

.....But FOR

*all your wonderful comments left here on my blog and on 4shared - they are the icing on the cake and I LOVE reading them daily,

*for all your support and encouragement in helping me grow as a designer,

*for the wonderful friendships that I have made through this little blog,- each and everyone of them are dear to me!

*for letting me be ME, ( all of it, with the bwahaha's and the *censored* beeps-lol)

*for all your support that keeps me helping my out my family - and keeping the job that I LOVE so much!

*for all those awards that I have been handed out over the last few months - that I haven't had a chance to pass out again!

Girls, I am deeply honoured for all of them, there are so many of you that I couldn't name you all - but I have left you some thank you's on your blogs, I love all of you and thank you for keeping me inspired and in your thoughts when you passed them out! It humbles me deeply!

* My wonderful, funny, amazing, loyal, creative, lively CT TEAM, - most  have been with me from the start of my little designing career (over a year and a half!) - OMG, these girls are my backbone! They keep me sane, in-check and let me know that I can be a PITA (pain in the ASS) too- HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Nah, they are just *my spine* and I LOVE YOU GUYS! ( I'm sucking up now as you know you got a full week ahead- BWAHAHAHAHAHA)

* BUNNY- oh my golly, what can I say, I had to single her out here - besides being one of my best friends, Bunny has taught me everything I know too. Without Bunny's guidance and encouragement and words of wisdom , I wouldn't be here now either .- Love you girl, and THANK YOU.

So with the FIRST celebrations starting TODAY- I decided to upgrade my blog a little- haven't changed the header as I still my *angel with horns*- HAHAHAHAHAHA. somehow I don't think I could get rid of her as SHE is ME- hee hee. You like it??- or do you prefer it plain white like it was?

Ok lts throw in a LO  to break all this type shall we- lol


Don't you just LOVE this- Nett, did this using Bunnys and my I BELIEVE kit- she called it *learning to fly*- Oh man you are the master at extractions Nett- LOVE IT!

Lots of reading today- and I know that for those that will take the time to read further you will get a little something extra today to help you out this week- hahahahaha.

Yeah it's my BIRTHDAY BASH coming up this week too! WOOOHOOOO

Starts on WEDNESDAY the 29th October until the 4th November 2008  with 45% off my whole store! ( not quite my age- LOL, but I rounded it off to the nearest five- SSSSHHHHHH- hahahahaha)

but you better check the blog too as you know how much we celebrated last year right??- Well this one's just as good- lots of pressies and goodies daily- so remember to check for updates from TODAY! - YAY.

I made you all a freebie THANK YOU KIT, for my ONE MILLION hits-

and if you look inside the download there is ANOTHER gift for you to use on the 29th OCTOBER only ( it can be used ONTOP of the sale amount for my whole store- including all CU tools- but sorry not on the Grab bags that will be available too.), so don't forget to check the notepad inside!


I've made this into TWO download parts- you will have to come and fetch the second part tomorrow-lol. Grab the first one here- .

have you got this far?- hahahahaha,

well there is just something I have to show you-

Natal-Sharks 2009 Logo

THE SHARKS won the rugby!!! WOOOHOOOOOOO- lol, Wayne was sulking his Blue Bulls lost, and of course this is now going around in our mail boxes! BWAHAHAHAHAHA- toooo funny! GO SHARKS!!

Ok enough for today- wow, you would swear it's Friday not Monday the way I've been yakking today-, but remember to keep an eye out here ALL WEEK for all the news. Sending hugs and loves Kim

I think I've left a million,
Posts on your blog I'm sure,
Well, maybe not EXACTLY,
the number is OBSCURE,
I just can't seem to help it,
Resist your blogs allure,
I think I am addicted,
And I fear there is no cure,
I come to stay a moment,
Just to say 'bonjour'
And your writing keeps me reading,
I am on a blog-detour,
Oh I hope you don't mind it,
For as long as you endure,
I shall keep returning,
In that you be secure.

I hope to be here for TWO and THREE million, my friend.

Love from your Canadaian blog-stalker (and friend)!

Congrats to hitting 1 million and thank you so much for that lovely gift. I like your new blog design, but I liked the simple white look of before as well since there is always so much other eye candy to look out for on your blog. And you definitely need to keep your little horned angel I would miss it very much and from what I read about you on your blog it IS you. LOL.
I also thank you very much for your funny and vivacious posts. They always account for a perfect coffee break.

My wish list is for your birthday sale has already gotten way too long. Hope hubby doesn't find it LOL. Have a great week
