My dear friends,
Today, I finally plucked up the courage to log onto my typepad, to give you an update about what has been going on and what to expect in the near future. However, I was horrified when I saw the amount of spam messages I had all over my blog! For each section of my blog, like my art and photography and even my wish list one, they were full of spam comments from people advertising all sorts of things, even things which I strongly disagree with! So , I was like, Oh - EM - Gee!
I first had a laugh, then got really annoyed that I had to go and delete them all. Thank God for typepad! Most of the spam went automatically into a folder - see, that's why I love Typepad. I pay a small fee to maintain this blog but, trust me, it is worth it. Anyway, cut a long story short, I cleaned all the spam but there might be a few left which I can't see right now, but will try and find them. So if you do come across some rude comments about things which are so not craft related, please just know, I didn't approve the comments as I decided a while back to remove the approval for new comments. Today, I have put it back as the minute I am away, people come and have a blast on my blog, huh, the cheek!
Now, I would like to say once again, a big Thank you to everyone who has supported me during my Hardest Time in my entire life. Until today, I am still very fragile and I still sob and cry like a child sometimes, but, I know for a fact that I was so so so touched by every single message I received on my youtube when I made the video about my late brother, and also, here on my blog, plus emails from so many of you. I do not even know you personally but the messages of support had meant so much to me - and I realised , how much you guys mean to me. It sounds crazy because we have not even met each other, but, the connection I felt was very soothing.
You see, when your whole world is crumbling around you, the many hands which stretch out to help you out of this mess, are the hands I needed to pick myself up, and move on. I will put some time aside this week, to get back to you guys.
Anyway, on to good news:) My sister gave birth to a beautiful baby girl! She arrived exactly a month after my brother left us. For me, it was a wonderful feeling to see a new arrival in the family. She is absolutely gorgeous and I am a happy Aunty! The minute I saw her , I knew she will be all over my scrapbook pages - I have started to feel inspired to do layout just by looking at her, sleeping like a little angel. I am taking lots and lots of pics.So , keep an eye out for upcoming layouts, but first, I need to get permission from my sister if I can publish the layout or not.Hmm, got to convince her!
Also, my youngest sister, has now qualified as a Graphic Designer in Animation. So all of you crafters there who needs someone to go over your designs so you can make your own stamps, you can get in touch with her and she will do your work at a very reasonable price. I have already had queries before as to how I made my 'Let's bake stamp set' . And of course it was her, who worked on my final designs. Her name is Ibtisam by the way. So, anyway, since she had a few fellow crafters who have commissioned her to do a few things. If you missed the video , here is it:-
I still have a few of those left, if you want to purchase it, just look on my blog and at the right hand side corner you will see you can pay by paypal. If you have any other questions please contact me. My email is on the left hand side bar.
And if you want to know where I got my stamps made, then, you can check out
Photocentric . I was very happy with them, and they send the stamps packaged in clear plastic bag and a printed acetate sheet with the images in black. So cool!
And this is Ibtisam's email add: email@example.com ( any spammers will be reported, grrr)
Anyway, I am going to have a video and or projects up by the end of this week, so keep your eyes peeled..:)
Bye for now and hope to be back very soon.
Take care and have a nice day.
Overhere, it is half term but I am still quite busy with things going on. I have lost a few kgs just by being stressed out and busy. But, hopefully, this week , I will be back at the gym because I want to be healthy, never mind , losing weight!
