25 Hour Day & Bar One

Yeah, I know it's a crazy title for a blog post, but we have a chocolate here in South Africa called a Bar One and the punch line in the ads is "For a 25 Hour Day". I have recently been wondering if I have 3 of those a day, maybe I could have a 75 hour day and get through all the things I want to get through.

Jayden is growing so fast and is changing daily. Hopefully I'll get a chance to do a LO or 2 in the next day or two. I just love the stage she's at. She's 6 weeks old and started smiling and she smiles at her blanket and the lamp and the side of her carry cot and and and if you KWIM. LOL. It's too cute. It also looks as if she's going to have big blue eyes, but we'll have to wait a bit longer to be sure. She is thriving and Katia took to motherhood as if she's always done so. She is 100% comfortable with Jayden and if I think back to when Rainer was born I know I didn't handle him all that confidently.

I've been having a wierd headache for the past 2 days. All on the one side of my head and my eye kept on twitching. I was getting rather concerned this afternoon and decided to stop off at the doctor. Well I have to tell you, if my doctor wasn't married to one of my friends, he'd never see me. I'm not very fond of a doctor's room. His consulting rooms are on a very busy road and I was watching traffic very carefully and when I turned to check that both sides were clear I just felt this huge clack in my neck. 15 minutes later I was still waiting for the doctor when my headache was gone. Seems I had a bit of a pinched nerve and with the rapid movement of my head I managed to release it. He gave me some anti-inflamatories and a jab in the butt and hopefully this is the end of wierd headaches and I can see him at the next friends visit. LOL.

Well have you seen that Kim B has been at it again. She has another one of her glorious mega grab bags up in the store again. 8 Brand new CU products for $8 for a limited time only. And her regular customers will know that it's top notch quality. No strays or jagged edges. You can get it here

I've got a freebie cluster frame for you made with some of the products in the bag.

Very Bad Blogger & New CU Items

Hello Everyone

Seems all I'm doing lately is appologise for being such a bad blogger.

Life has really taken over. First my car was hi-jacked, then I became a GRANNY on the 2nd of July. Oh man, has that little madam just taken over my life. My DD Katia had a bay girl named Jayden and she is the cutest little thing imaginable. She has just stolen all our hearts and most of our time is spent with her.

I did this LO of her using various of Kim B's CU items.

I have also been working on some new CU items and I'm building up quite a few things to release during the month, but the following items are in my STORE. 25% off for 1 week only. All items have been quality checked for no jaggies or strays. No drop shadows on any of the items either.

The first 70's Ribbon are from ribbons I found in my mom's stash. It's times like these that I'm so happy she's a hoarder.

The second Africa Wildlife are some beautiful animal overlays that I made from photos taken by my very talented friend Warren de Swardt. They're textured with slightly grungy edges.

And I haven't forgotten about everyone, I have a faaabric flower that's CU friendly, and I've included a layered psd file, desat .png file and a colored .png file.

You can get it here I hope you can find some use for this and we'll chat soon.
