I'm here, I'm here!!!

Geez... one would think that I completely abandoned my little cyber corner, my blog! The poor thing is starting to develop some personality issues due to lack of attention! LOL

Well, before I start blabbing away I gotta tell you this.

As many of you might know, Bunny is 'stormed in' and has no power at the moment, so ANY STORE ISSUES OR QUERIES, PLEASE CONTACT KIM AT: kbroedelet(at)telkomsa(dot)net. And please bare with us while 'da Boss' is 'out'!

BUNNY, SENDING LOADS OF WARM WISHES YOUR WAY!!! Like Beth said, I hope it all THAW very soon! mwah!

Ok, so now it's exactly 1 hour and 23 minutes after I started writing this post... had to stop to prevent my kids from killing each other over a toy (yes, they are in the 'MINE' fase!), then the doorbell rang, then there was ANOTHER toy, and this and that... BLUH...!

Don't you just hate when real life gets in the way of your computer play time? lol

And talking about playing.... I've finally manage to do it a little bit, I have 2 new products in the store:

2 packs of romantic masks to 'artsy up' your layouts! :D

There are 5 masks in each pack and all of them are quite big to allow you to resize as you please. They're both 25% off for one week...that makes it $1.50 each!!!


Get pack 1 HERE


Get pack 2 HERE 

Here are some of them shown full size on a 12x12 paper:

Ok... I'm off to settle another battle over what it seems to be a crayon this time! lol

Hugs to all,

This month I'm hosting the Lyric Challenge and the Book of Me.

The Lyric challenge is very FUN, we're working with the song Zip-a-dee-doo-dah...!

Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay
My, oh my what a wonderful day!
Plenty of sunshine heading my way
Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay
Mister Bluebird on my shoulder
It's the truth, it's actch'll
Ev'rything is satisfactch'll
Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay
Wonderful feeling, wonderful day!
Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay
My, oh my what a wonderful day!
Plenty of sunshine heading my way
Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay
Mister Bluebird on my shoulder
It's the truth, it's actch'll
Ev'rything is satisfactch'll
Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay
Wonderful feeling, feelin' this way!

The only problem with this song is that it has the POWER to get stuck in your head... C'mon, tell me the truth, you're already humming it, aren't ya? HAHAHA




Here's what you get for your participation:




And the Book of ME is all about RESOLUTIONS this month!!!

Is it Friday yet???

It's the middle of the week and I'm already completely exhausted... I don't know if all 2 years olds have the same amount of energy, but mine sure manage to keep me busy and make me crazy! lol

NOTHING is safe from them... we already changed the entire living room to make it safe for and from them, but somehow they manage to find stuff to either destroy or hurt themselves. And in addition to all that, they decided they don't need to take a nap in the afternoon anymore, so no 'rest' time for Mama!  Not to mention all the fighting (which is probably what makes me insane the most), they fight over EVERYTHING! Then, 5 minutes later they are both laughing their little tushies off, playing together! LOL

Oh, well... I guess I shouldn't complain, they are healthy happy children and that's what matters. It's just that the exhaustion gets the best part of me sometimes! ;)

Ok!!! Enough of my whining! Thanks for let me borrow your ears (or rather, your eyes) a little bit! :D

Soooooooooooooooo.... have you check out the challenges at DSO this month? If not, hurry there for some FUN and YUMMY PRIZES!!!

Oh My....

... has it really been THAT long since I blogged?

Shame on you, Livia!!!

How have you guys been?

Vacation was GREAT! It was awesome to see my family and friends again... Watching the kids interact with and charm my entire family was FUN!!!

Coming home was a whole other story... The first few days were tough! First because I always get a bit depressed to be so far away from my family again and second because the kids were so used to having SO MUCH attention all the time and single-handed-mommy here couldn't replace grandma, grandpa, great grandma and tons of uncles and cousins!  PLUS they were very jet lagged! ROFL... Feeling sorry for me yet? HAHAHA

So... what made me come out of my cave and start blogging again? Well, besides the fact that I missed ya'll, I just HAD to show you what a GREAT GIFT I received from my friend Chelly! She made a mini kit and named it after me.... Isn't that SWEET??? What a great way to show affection!!!!

Here it is:

Kit Simply Livia by ChelSant Preview

How gorgeous is this!!!  And guess what??... it's a FREEBIE!!! Woohoooo! Is Chelly AWESOME or what? Just swing by her blog to snag it!

And that not being enough, she also made a BEAUTIFUL QP to go with it, also available at her blog.

Chelly, what can I say?

That was ABSOLUTELY a FANTASTIC gift and surprise! THANK YOU SO MUCH!

LOVE YOU, girl!!! MWAH!!!

Hugs to all,
