I have a HOME

Well not up here yet (a permanent one that is-lol) but I have put down roots EVENTUALLY and found myself a “Designing home”.

*Warning*- full post ahead- grab COFFEE- lol

Andrea the owner of Scrap Matters “lassoed” me last week with a mail or 6- hahah, and I was happy to say YES. I got a ton of PM’s and Mails from designers and Scrappers alike asking me not to go as I was there as an “extended guest” –(which is uhum, not really a done thing but I thank Happy Scrap Girl for that one) lol.

I must admit my head is still spinning with all the “stuffs” I have to learn how to do etc etc and I will probably drive everyone a little dilly with HOW and WHAT’. ( ok ok, I can do that without the questions right?? lol) But it sure feels good to know that I have a permanent address again.

So CELEBRATE with me the next week! I will have some fun things going on on my blog and of course some “give aways”, RAKS and freebies! WHEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

Kim! I am so very excited that we have you aboard now at SM. I sure hoped that you would find it too hard to leave us!

Thanks for the wonderful template!!

CBH said...

Thank you so much for this post. I want to let you know that I posted a link to your blog in CBH Digital Scrapbooking Freebies, under the Page 9 post on Mar. 25, 2011. Thanks again.

Jenni said...

Congrats on the new store, so happy for you!!!
Have a great weekend (go Sharks go on Sunday!!)

makeyesup said...

Congrats on your new home. Great kits going in there. Thanks for the freebies. Have a super weekend.
See that you have honored Deon with a kit, where's Wayne's? You better get going on that one as he might think Deon is a closer friend than he is. Hubby's can be so territorial.

Jeanine DeOre said...

Wahoo on you joining SM! Love the template and SO going to grab that CU grab bag.... :-)

Lulutoo said...

Congrats on your new store - and I haven't said yet that I love your new logo! I stupidly unsubbed from all of the newsletters where I already follow the blog, so missed out on the CU freebie. :( My bad! Off to shop your big sale! Have a great weekend! :)

Ruebchensmum said...

KayJay said...

Thanks for the template, I loved using it. Wasn#t sure what for at the beginning but browsing Pinterest I came across this quote and knew of the perfect picture for it! And your template was ideal, thanks
I put it in your gallery at Scrapmatters

Ruth said...

Congrats Kimmie!!! I am so happy for you...Have a GREAT weekend! muaksxxx

Must feel good to have made the decision and settled down!

Ooh, and I couldn't pass on the sale! WOOT!
Heehee, got me a 'new' one! (Roche) I just love that you're bringing back some of the older kits. I did miss out on some, so there's my chance!
Saying that... I was wondering - hoping - if you might consider bringing out another one... A Fresh Start. I passed on at the time, and have regretted dearly.


kokotte said...

Thanks a lot for your beautiful templates, Kim. I really appreciate your work!! :)

Darleen said...

Love the Friday template. In fact I liked it so much, that I did a layout with it, using your Mulberry Fields kit. It's in the gallery.
Thanks for all you do, lady!
