Challenge news and BIG apologies.

Hi everyone,
I am sorry if I have seemed a bit vacant and distant for couple of days, I have been struggling a little, but I am ok now.   I am going to spend the whole evening getting all my jobs done for the blog: all the emails, requests and Starter bags made up.  Also, and very importantly I also have fab news, I have received the necessary email to activate the Linky tool, this means that we can go ahead with the challenge......AT LAST I hear you say, and I agree with you.  At least now that I have activated the account, any future challenges will be quicker to set up (once I have learned what to do!.... Oh dear did I speak to soon then.......Nah, I can do it you'll see......(big grin)!!.
Well I am going to be a very busy chicky tonight, but hopefully by the morning you will all be able to see the Challenge details.  Have any of you made bookmarks ahead of time?  If you have please let me know in your comment as I will not make any special requirements for the challenge.  If not, then maybe we can have a couple of inclusions eg: a colour combo or maybe we could make them all shabby chic or something else as nice.
All the lovely people that have requested Starter packs for my Decorative Pins, I am making some up as we speak and will get them weighed tomorrow morning for shipping costs (including international) and I will contact you all personally with the details.   Again please forgive my tardiness,  I have not forgotten about you for one minute I promise;  my back is a curse in more ways than one  (sleep deprivation this time).
Lastly and very importantly:  A very BIG WELCOME to the latest followers and thank you for all your lovely comments. 
I feel truly blessed; I am making new friends all the time and receiving the most wonderful support and understanding (how kind you all are).  We know so little about each other and yet I feel such great warmth, I will never forget this, it has astounded me.  I will do my best to repay your kindnesses as often as I am able.

Well have a good evening and try to pop by tomorrow, we should have a challenge up and running!!!
Nite nite all.  Hugs Linda xx

  3. aaaaw I'm so glad that I'm not the only one in Blogland who does not understand all that Computer stuff :o)) I'm totally helpless with these things and I struggle a lot with new settings, layouts and everything! Mind you, I'm a secretary, I'm supposed to know it :o))))
    Hope your back is not to bad, I know how it is, have a slipped disc and sometimes it hurts so much, outch!!
    Take care!
