I'm a Blog Evangelist!

Yes, yes, yes!!! I am SO excited 'cos my friend France wants to start a blog!!! I am so excited to share some blog love with her...I can't wait...

FINALLY got to my fave l'il shop around here...Reminisce to visit my friend & be inspired by all her hard work (she owns & runs a fab Scrapbooking Shop in KZN & has recently relocated into a beautifully renovated house, complete with La Maison Coffee Shop & Spa Treatment Centre)...SO lush...If you haven't been YOU"RE MISSING OUT...travel if neccessary...or, only if you have a GOOD excuse...ie, you live on the other side of the world...visit her website...just click on the links I have created above...Oh yes, I'm not too shabby at this blogging thing anymore people!

We got chatting (as one does...) & she always gets me excited...firstly, we always have a little "reminisce" about our weekend together at the Convention in Johannesburg this year, which was full of hilarity-you can imagine-African Style-the hotel bookings were stuffed up good & proper & it took us hours just to check in...blah blah blah...the list goes on. The START of the trip we were all hooking up at Jan Smuts (oops, I mean Oliver Tambo now people) - that's Johannesburg International Airport for anyone who didn't know that - after our respective flights, only dear France was nowhere to be found...Poor girl was at the clinic getting a fair amount of stitches in her LEG!!! She had sliced it open with her craft knife that had jostled it's way to the side of her CABIN luggage...unbelievable but she has the scar to prove it & is now most revered for her dedication to scrapbooking, in sickness & in health...aaah...OK...enough reminiscing!

Anyway...then we inspire each other...she shows me some tantalising, mouth-watering goodies from her "special" shelf...& I fill her in on the latest happenings in MY Scrap World. Well, my good excuse for my sudden monthly drop in layout production (LOL) I attributed to STARTING MY OWN BLOG (never fails to impress..!) which had her instantly excited & rearing to go. Like so many of us (here anyway?!), it's something we have all heard about, & she is just dying to make it happen, but not at all sure how to go about it..well, guess what?!...I could advise her! I know that is hilarious, coming from me of all people, but it made me realise (as I was reminiscing again on our meeting, last night) I've actually made a blog, single-handedly, & it's a pretty fine one now too... Not only does it look good, it functions as it should & it is interactive. I'm proud of myself...better stop boasting before something bad happens & my blog deletes itself (my new worst fear!)...you know what God says about pride coming before a fall...

The blog's really looking so good. Now it's too late for me to start one as I'll really be a novice and mine will look pathetic! Let me know when France starts up so I can go over and have a look see. J
