Don't you just love my new blog look???? I think I now have the most beautiful blog on the net. And it's all thanks to the very talented Kim. THANK YOU KIMMY, I JUST LOVE THIS!!!!.

Last week I mailed Kristine and asked her if she could give me some links to tutorials on how to create blog backgrounds. My blog was really depressing me with all that black and I really didn't feel like blogging. Kristine got back to me in a flash with a link. The next day we had a quiet day at work and of course I didn't have the link, so I mailed Kim. She also let me have some links quick as a flash. Well I followed the tutorials and played around and eventually came up with something that "looked" as if I knew what I was doing. Let's face it, I'm under no illusions that I actually know what I'm doing, I just bluff my way through these things. Well I mailed Kim my little tryout and SHE ASKED ME if she could design something for me. Who in their right mind will say no if Kim offers???? And this is what she came up with and very tentatively asks me if I like it. KIM!!!! I like Cape Cookies - this I frigging LOVE!!!!

Kim has managed to capture me 100% with this LO because that's what I see, a beautiful whimsical LO. But apart from the fairytale feel to this she captured some of my personality traits. The vines that are slightly chaotic which defines my attention deficit, slightly disordered life. The boots the fairy is wearing - I love boots and I'm currently the owner of 23 pairs and now that winter is approaching I'm sure I'll find about 50 pairs that I just have to have LOL. The striped socks the fairy is wearing, I do so love to make fashion statements and the dark wings, which matches my impossible nature. And of course the flowers and butterflies which represents my love of nature. So with one blog design, you got to know me quite intimately.

And now I'm motormouth LOL. Some news from the past month and a bit. Rainer has healed quite nicely and is back to being full of bluster and blarney. His bike was written off by the insurance and he has decided to buy a new car. Mom is suitably jealous because he is buying what I'd love to drive. A black VW Polo TDI.

We've been crazy hectic at work with financial year end, but thank goodness that is over and the auditors packed up their laptops and files today and we can take a breather for the next year.

Jazzy has some new word art in store that's on sale for a very limited time only. So swing on by her blog and go and read all about her exciting news and see what new word art she has. I just love what she comes up with. It's always the perfect finishing touch to a LO.

Oh and I'm sure you've all been saying "STOP WAFFLING" and get to the freebie. Well I made a little something to match my new look.

You can get it here

Enjoy the rest of your day.
