Special People

Hello everyone

It's not often, but every so often in your life you meet a very special person. Today, my blog post is dedicated to just such a person. Her name is Gina (or Geezee) Zuiderduin. I'm going to tell you about her in a bit, but I first have to do a bit of advertising.

Bunny has decided to shake things up quite a bit over at DSO

First there's a Designer's Call Drive. Are you looking for a fantastic store? Are you looking to make friends with your fellow designers? Are you looking for a happy place? Then look no further, DSO is the place to be. Read more about it here.

Now for all the scrappers out there

Oh yes, you read it right. DSO will now have it's own Store Creative Team. Stop by the forum and read all about it. I'm so excited about this. WHEEEEEE

Now I have to share something that Kim got up to. Her creativity knows no bounds. Not only does she create the most amazing kits and CU goodies, but she challenges us as a CT as well. LOL. Earlier in the week she decides to come up with a "strange" request. It's time for the July Color Challenge and she asks each of us for a color. Well when they started coming through I thought, this is going to be spaghetti bolognaise. We are all so different. BUT Kim came up with 2 yes TWO amazing color swatches and 2 of the most incredible posting bonuses I have ever seen.

Go read the rules here and here.

OK, that out the way, let's get on to Geezee. I was carjacked on Monday morning. I don't want to dwell on that too much, but apart from the shock and losing my personal effects and being very frustrated by red tape I am OK. I am going for councilling and feel OK with what has happened. I just have this uncontrollable urge to swear profusely. Well Kimmie mentioned this on her blog yesterday (thanks my friend) and when I got home and checked my e-mail, I had this INCREDIBLE e-mail from Geezee. I'm not going to share the mail or the subsequent mails between Geezee and myself, but I have to tell you that she made me SOB. I cried harder because of her e-mail than after the whole scare I got.

Geezee, you are an incredible lady. May every kindness you show to others be returned to you a million times. I have made this little frame cluster to thank you and I'd like to share it with the scrapping community. All I ask is that if you use it, remember that it stems from a kind deed and be thankful for the kind and loving people in your life.

You can get it here Have a marvelous evening. I have an idea for color swatch one and I'm raring to go.

Love and many hugs
