Yay - Friday!!!

I am so relieved it is Friday, I have done so much traveling with 2 kids writing exams at different times, I have been up and down all week taking and fetching kids from school! Renovations are flying now, the weather has been kind to us for 2 days!
The designers at Digital Candy got together to create a charity kit in aid of a family with a little girl,Allison, who lost everything in the hurricane in Texas. All proceeds from this kit will go directly to them. You can see photographs and read about the devastation HERE.
The kit is called Allison's Fairytale, and consists of 48 papers and 92 elements.
The kit is going for only $5.00.

My contribution
Digital Candy's December collab is in the shop, it is a huge holiday grab bag, a fantastic bargain at only$3.99!!
And here is my contribution:
Although we don't have Black Friday in South Africa I jumped on the bandwagon and put my entire shop on sale less 50%, and don't forget my $1.00 deals are only until 30 November!
KimB Designs has a fantastic new Commercial Use grab Bag out especially for Black Friday at an absolute bargain of $4.00!!
And her shop is 40% off today only!!
Here is my hint at what you will find in Kim's Grab bag!(Some of the elements are from my portion of Natures Palette, a Digital Candy Mega collab)
And here is the freebie made with the grab bag,only something small as I did not get much time to work with it, this is only a tiny portion of what is in the bag!

Have a great weekend, and don't forget to pick up my Candy Jar freebie on Monday!

Renovations, LO's, Grab Bag and freebies!!

We have been in our present house for over 8 years, and for 8 solid years we have been renovating. At the moment we are doing a huge job, renovating our pool and outside entertainment area, and I thought it would be fun to show you some photos as it progresses. These are the first lot I took yesterday as the pool was emptied and the area prepared for paving. The building you see with the thatch roof is called a lapa here, that we have just completed the structure but lots of finishing touches still to be done , it has a little bar, braai (barbecue) and a jacuzzi. Our house surrounds the pool, this is as you walk out of the house, to the right is out indoor entertainment area and bar, and my son's room and bathroom and the spare room, to the front is the kitchen and to the left is the living area and the rest of the bedrooms and bathrooms. That wrought iron gate is being removed and sliding shutters are being put up insteadI had the pleasure of swapping kits with Danielle Corbitt, this is her new kit Snow AngelAnd the LO I did with it- which got LOTD at Digital Candy -YAY!!I have some word art in my shop, part of a collab Grab Bag Digital Candy did for DSD that has now been revealed. I did this with my teenage daughter in mind!
Ok, onto some more Whimsical Winter LO's!It is still 45% off until Friday, I extended the sale for a few more days!
