Happy Chappy

WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE- Deon's HOME- lol. Yup he arrived back in PE late last night. He's moving back, and starts work here tomorrow! I'm sooooo excited to have my friend back home. Been sort of lost with everyone scattered to the four winds- but hee hee, they are slowly migrating back!;-) Last night Wayne and I cried with laughter! Deon asked us if he could park a trailer here overnight as his dad stays in a complex and there is no space for it- But of course you can! ( both Wayne and I thinking it's a little boxy Venter Styled trailer with a lid-KWIM?)

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA- down the road comes this Audi A4 ( black and sporty) with this HUGE mountain of silver tarpaulin covering what looks like the whole of Deon's house- stuffed into a little square trailer! OMG, we died laughing as it looks so freaking funny behind this posh sports car- it looked like it should have been pulled by some donkeys and the sort of thing you see on the * Priceless* jokes on the net- hahahaha. No Wonder it took him all day to get home- lol, even he saw the funny side of it as he had tried to sell most of his furniture in Cape Town and come back with just the essentials- HA- he got left with MORE than he thought he would as he ran out of time!

Check this out-


LOL_ toooo funny!

And I told you I went shopping on Friday- YAY, Check all the goodies I bought!


I've been playing this weekend with the watercolours and I must admit- I'm a little rusty- hahaha. I'm more a Gouache girl as that is a medium I learnt studying and used for Textile designing too- so I thought before I hit my comfort zone - I'd push myself to try the watercolours first- and WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE, I'm having fun- results on the way SOON- lol

My net is working again- but there are still some *hic cups* that are being seen too, but for now - I'm here and extremely happy that it's stable ;-)

OOOOH And it's MARCH- sheeeeeeeeeeee's who stole February???- lol

That means my new Colour Challenge is up!!

LOL! Deon's trailer looks like something from the Beverly Hillbillies! Thanks for the alpha, and DANG! was that download quick! I LOVE the March swatch, I almost have my kit done.

Deon's glam trailer was a hoot. I can see why you laughed tears. The alpha is terrific and, I agree with Vicki, the download was quick. Glad to have you back!!
another Texas hug,

geezee said...

So the fact that his trailer doesn't surprise me, make me wierd? We do call ourselves redneck here. Oh, by the way we live in a RV. You know rolling vehicle. So much more convenient when you pick up and transfer every 3 years! So glad to have you back and smiling. I can hear it in your "voice"

Many thanks for the great alpha, the sharing of your LO and the sharing of those funny pics!

I'm so glad you changed to I've been hearing such awful things about picking up viruses from 4shared that I've stopped downloading from them, so I'm glad you changed (besides, it's much faster and no waiting!).

Jenni said...

Deon's trailer hahahaha!!!

Good luck with the water colours, I spent a fortune stocking up and went through tons of paper but just wasn't too satisfied with the results and of course there is the scanning and extracting, too complicated, I am going to learn how to do this in my Corel Painter!! Thanks for the cute alpha!

Lol. Great trailer... real asset to your house I bet!
Aw, but you've got your friend back, that's worth lots more!

Thanks for the alpha, so pretty!
The download was super-quick, no waiting period nothing! WOW!
But also no place for comments? Oh well, no problem for me, I don't often use 4shared for comments, I'd rater leave them at a blog! ;)

The new colors are awesome. I'm so sorry to have missed last month's, I really loved those colors too.
Just no chance. Very nice, when I got rid of the flu, I got the cold. Arghhh.
Still, I can enjoy all I see there!

If you have time, check my blog. This time no digiscrapping item, but a funny item. I bet you'll love it. Ever heard of 'the mom song'?

Thanks for the awesome alpha! I can't wait to play with the DSO colors this month. I like that you use now. I have been avoiding any links that have to do with 4-shared just in case! However, you stuff is so phenomenol that I just ignore any risks just to get my hands on something made by you! LOL! Thanks for switching and freeing my computer from danger! LOL!
