What's New

Well apart from it being a new year and a new day, I had to get a NEW WARDROBE. After eating like crazy over the festive period, I literally didn't have anything that fit properly.

Yesterday I went off to the shops to go and get a few things that doesn't cut off my circulation or makes me look like an over stuffed sausage. I decided to get the minimal amount of stuff otherwise I'd just get comfortable with this weight and never lose it. I took Katia with me and she was disgusted. I decided to get neat stuff, but not very flattering, so that every day when I get dressed I can look at myself and have incentive to lose weight. I'm also not drinking any fizzy drinks (even if they say diet), but sticking to mineral water and the MOST DISGUSTING Chinese detox tea I have ever tasted in my life.

My mom is back from my cousin and she brought me some goodies that my cousin embroidered with her embroidery machine and my next goal is to buy one of these machines. I'll have to save like mad and be very disciplined because I still want my Sony camera and do some photography lessons as well. I'm just going to have to shut my eyes and ears if there are any mototcycling bargains that come my way. I might even sell the one bike, but just thinking about it breaks my heart.

Has my little teaser of Kim B's January Grab Bag gotten you in the mood to scrap and design yet? Remember, it's only on special for a few days and then the bag gets broken up and loaded at regular price.

Jazzy also has some gorgeous sets of new WA in her store, you can go and have a looksee here. Jazzy has this uncanny knack of creating WA that is so appropriate. I usually find just the right phrase in one of her collections to really give meaning to my LO's.

And Beth will be releasing a new kit in the next few days that is very earthy and warm. Be sure to swing by Beth's blog to pick up a QP freebie that is absolutely DIVINE. She's definitely the QP Queen. And if you check back tomorrow, I'll even have some LO's just to whet your apetite for her new kit.

And as my gift to you today, I have completed the DSO Color Challenge. I started off in one direction and when I looked again I had made a complete u-turn and ended up with something totally different. Some of the elements match my last freebie and can be used for Valentine's Day LO's. But the kit was really inspired by a little girl named Colleen that I knew when I was a kid. While working on this the colors reminded me of a birthday party Colleen had and I remember her in a dress of similar colors. I also made my first brushes for this kit and I'm quite proud of it.


You can get it here http://www.4shared.com/file/80076717/9764a86b/Colleen.html?dirPwdVerified=1524a939. Just a little note - I still have all my kits and freebies up since I started blogging, so if you go through my archives, don't worry, the links are still active.

Have a great day.

Hugs
Renée
