A note

As probably some of you already know, Amanda has decided to close Taggers Scraps.
The store has been hacked by some ignorant and jealous people that have nothing better to do in their poor lives.
She brought the store back but decided to close it. I don't blame her for doin' this.
She's been attacked on several stupid blogs and groups by stupid and nasty people and she had enough.

I only want to say that I've been with Amanda since she opened Tantrum's store and never had a problem with her. Never had a problem with payouts. She's always been transparent and loyal to me (and with all designers). So this awful campaign that is going over her is senseless. It's all crap!!

Making scrapkits is not funny anymore to me, not this way... :(
Not only because I have a RL, but even because I have no time to look after all these dramas. I don't need them.

A different Christmas... :)

So..

Ok, I think it's time to share this with you all... :)

I'll try to explain as better as I can (as you know, English is not my mother language and I'm not using a translator, so... be good to me!!).

As I've already told you, I haven't been very well in the last few weeks. To tell you the truth, I felt soooooo bad that I thought I was about to die... I swear!

I'm not ill, anyway. I'm just....... PREGNANT!!! LOL!! At the age of 35!

I've found out it at the end of October. It was a huuuuuuuge surprise because we weren't planning to have another baby, not now... But I guess it's my last chance to have one :)

I soon started feeling soooooooo bad!! I've had nausea 24 hours a day and I was throwing up up to 4 times a day. I couldn't eat almost anything. I couldn't cook. I only wanted to sleep all day long. I was totally out of service.

This is the worst thing about pregnancy. But, fortunately, things started to change last week. I'm now feeling much much better, I can eat some more, I can cook (not everything) and I'm almost back into my normal life. And now I'm soooo happy!! Lol

I don't know if he's/she's a boy/girl but it doesn't matter. I only hope he's/she's in good health!

So, here's the reason because I'm offline for most of the time and I'm not even making new kits. I'm totally out of PSP/PS/scappin'/tuttin'/taggin' at the moment and I don't know if my mojo will come back. Who knows? At the moment I'm only taking care of myself and my baby. Let's see what happens! :)

This is going to be a very different Christmas for me...

And I want to thank Farrah soooooo much for making this kit.. dedicated to me and my baby! (PLEASE NOTE THAT IT'S NOT A CHARITY KIT)
I absolutely adore it!! :)

Apologies to everyone...

Hi,
I just wanted to let a quick note to apologize with all the people that are e-mailing me... showing me tags made with my kits, reporting illegal sharing, asking to be on my CT and for anything else.
I really really am so sorry if I haven't replied to all of you. I'm not ignoring you! I'm only offline for most of the time.
Things are really hard here at the moment and I will tell you why soon.
For now... I'm only asking you to understand :)

Thank you to everyone!!

I also have a new award given me by Danielle (http://dmkdesigns.blogspot.com/)





This award is called the "Proximidade Award" or "Friendship Around The World Award". Originally this award was written in spanish, but it translates to highlight blogs that are pleasing or special in some way, and also to extend the hand of friendship around the world.

And now I have to pass this award on to 8 blogs -
I think that everyone already has it so forgive me for any repeat!! :)

I've been tagged and awarded :)

I was tagged by Kirsty (http://harryandtatesmum.blogspot.com/) and had to answer these questions:



1.How long have you been using PSP? For about 3 years now



2. How did you get into making tags, scrapkits? Well, I first started with my glittered name - it took me about 4 hours to have a decent result with the animation.. lol



3. Who`s your fave artist? Garvey, Chatzoudis, Janesko, Zindy, Woolcott mainly but there are many others



4.Who`s your faveourite Scrap Designer? ehehe, so many to chose from!! I would say Lisa (Sophisticated Scraps), Kay Miller and Mary Fran (Nit Wit) - they were my first idols but I love many many others!



5. Which three blogs do you visit everyday? Unfortunately I haven't much time to go through blogs :( but there are a few I visit from time to time: Krista, Teresa (boundless bliss) and Missy's and Yvette's Misfit Scraps.








Passing this on to the following:





http://chadesignz.blogspot.com/

Kirsty also gave me this award:





Thank you for thinking of me!! :)
