In case you are wondering why my projects aren't in the Lime Tart gallery for January: the kit took forever to be delivered. It was supposed to arrive before Christmas, but it didn't. I waited an extra day before going on holiday and didn't leave until mid day on the 29th to see if the courier would finally show up. But nope, no parcel and a slightly stressed out me especially since I couldn't contact Philippa who was on a very well deserved holiday herself. Arranged for a duplicate kit to be sent to my holiday destination. I harassed the poor local shop people daily about it, only to find out on the 9th of Jan that it wasn't coming at all. Just as well as I was getting pretty worked up about it, wondering how I'd ever manage to come up with something half decent in just 3-4 days while not completely neglecting my children and of course the beach that beckoned daily.
So... back home and there's a pizza box filled to the brim waiting for me to play with. (I really wonder how long it actually took to get here, will have to ask the neighbours who fed the cat for me). Give me a week or so and I should come up with something to add to what's there already. Mel, Lee and Debbie (who's replacing Ange) have already worked their magic on the 12x12 and 6x6 kits. The pressure is on! nah, just kidding.

Blown away by a random act of kindness

I know I've been neglecting my blog and I will post a proper update soon I promise. But I just have to share and most of all thank someone for the most wonderful surprise I found when I got back from holiday tonight. A big pizza box filled with patterned paper including some of the yummie new BG Blush, tons of ribbon, loads of flowers, 2x lipgloss and plenty of other little treats. Naomi, thank you so very very much. I have no idea how you got my address so may have to interrogate a few people. Your message to me really did lift my spirits! I just find it hard to believe that someone would do that for me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. You have no idea how much it meant to me.
And now I'm off to try and contact you personally through a message board because I don't even have your email addy!
