Internet broke AGAIN

BWWWWAHAHA- OMG, I am sooo frustrated it isn't funny. My main internet connection has been OFF for the most part of January. Seems all the storms we have been having in this area keeps damaging the main tower.

They have been on the phone with me constantly letting me know what is happening etc etc, but arrrrrrrrghhhhhhhh, FIX IT DAMMIT! lol. I've been on poor Deon's little portable wireless AGAIN - which has been a life saver for sure- but it's dial up speeds when it comes to uploading or even posting this page. GREAT for mail and just browsing. But hey, it's still way better than being totally without a "lifeline" right? ;-P

I got a "mainline" fix for about 5 hours yesterday- OMG, I was like a mad woman- uploading like a banshee. Running around the internet like a loon, no food, no coffee- just give me SPEED! BBWWWWHAHAHAHAHA.  ;-P

I got up some "requests" into a CU GRAB BAG yesterday at Sugar Hill Co.


February Grab Bag

6 Brand new products are included in this limited time Grab Bag for only $5:

It has a set of brushes and a Layerstyle set too - but each one comes with PNG and JPG files for use in any programmes ;-)

OOOH I totally forgot about this too:- Yikes!

I got to play with Design by Tina's new kit: "Un Peu De La France"

And this is what I did with it-


Of course it's my darling niece Caden.

*random chatter*-lol OMG! Well you all know Nathan started working this year and in his FIRST month of working he had to ask for time off as he has his "Provincial colours" for Rock and Surf Fishing Under21's! lol

His boss is very impressed about it ( Thank Goodness) as he is a big fisherman himself ( seems Nath landed in the right job- BWHAHAHA).

Anyways, Nathan KNEW that he would get an initiation of a HEAD SHAVE as all the boys getting into the team have had it done by the "old toppies". BUT oh man... what he didn't know was they first hack at it with scissors and leave it like that for a DAY! Nathan was NOT IMPRESSED and sent me photo's with a MOM, how the hell do you fix this?????


A BEFORE shot above ( these were small photo's sent to my camera) OMG, I nearly cried myself! They made him walk around like - well sit in the car while they travelled to Cape Town! mmmmmmmmmmmmm- SHAVE it my boy and no number 1 on a clipper is even going to save that!

He tried a number 1 first- but it looked terrible with the lines still going through like a train station- so it was use the clipper BARE and take it down to the scalp. and when I got the last photo- I nearly freaked as he looks JUST LIKE HIS DAD did in the Army! OMG, it's like looking at Wayne's twin. I think he looks cute actually, but then again he is my BOY! lol. He is not impressed by does laugh at it now ;-)

Wear sunscreen on that head my boy and keep a cap on- cause it's going to BURN! hahahaha- OY!

I have a little something I made up and re-did them for you into usable "brushes" and PNG's as a CU freebie that you can play with:


6 PENCIL doodles made into brushes (all clean and tidy-lol) and separated PNG's for those who can't use the brushes ;-)

I used the same techniques for my hearts in the CU Grab Bag above>

You can grab them HERE:

Well I'm off to grab coffee as this is going to take a while to post- hahaha. (with two time outs so far- here's hoping #3 hits the spot! oy!-lol)

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I'm praying those techs get their asses in gear and get me up and running again ;-)

Hugs and Loves

i thought you lost me from your list! i have been wondering what's up - good to see you back on line. yeah, dial-up is no good for the huge files digi-scrap creates. Thanks so much for the brushes! They are perfect. And yep, i can use brushes, but when i'm lazy, i like having the pngs!

Thank you so much!

Thank you. Wow, they sure did a hack job on his hair. Glad he was able to fix it though. Thanks for the freebie, very pretty.

Sue said...

Thanks so much for the lovely brushes and png! :)

Internet woes are the PITS! Hope it gets fully operational soon.

My middle son actually chose to shave his hair totally off, not as the result of a bad haircut. It looked ... interesting. Your son at least has a little fuzz.

Thanks, Kim.

It seems internet woes are common worldwide! I'm on ADSL2 and I was getting download speeds of just 4kbs! Disgustingly slow. It has improved a little of late, so fingers crossed it only gets better.

I'm hoping the same for you because it's way too frustrating!

pkdoll said...

OMG! Poor Nathan! He has such a cute head of hair and now it's gone. The only good thing is it will grow back even thicker, and probably curlier. LOL! Them initiations can be a pain. hahaha! Thanks for the gorgeous brushes.

Girlie, Nathan is handsome NO matter who is doing the looking ;)

SO glad to see you sweetie! I am away awaiting the birth of my grandson and taking my first peek in at emails in nearly two weeks. ARGH! I feel you, I FEEL YOU!

Hoping your Internet is back in business like "yesterday" and that everything returns to your regularly scheduled programming! LOL!

Thank you for the brushes and wishing you an INCREDIBLY superb week ahead - MWAH!
