I'll do the good news first..I just reached 100 followers!! Yaaaayyy!! And I didn't even have to offer anyone free tubes to do it ;p Thanks everyone who has decided to click that little button, it really does mean a lot to me :o) I'll be sure to get lots more freebies and FTU tuts up as my way of saying thank you!!!

Which brings me to my bad news..my laptop has gone all wonky and won't keep a charge. I won't be able to get it looked at for at least 2 weeks, and that's where allll my PSP stuff is! Hubby doesn't want me to download anything to the desktop, so that means no new stuff until I get it fixed =/  Unless I start getting cold sweats from PSP withdrawls and take it in sooner, lol. But if I wait, then I can get it looked at for free, and I like that option better!! So you may just see a lot of random updates from me until I get it sorted!!

First, I'd like to say a big thank you to Heidi at Scottish Butterfly Creations for putting this blog train together, and inviting me to join :o) This blog train goes hand in hand with BCA awareness month, but looks more towards the good stuff...The Goodies those get as survivors, and The Goodies you appreciate more as a fighter. The first thing that I thought of with this, was a beautiful garden. So I hope you enjoy my contribution to this blog train, and please make sure to visit all the other spots and pick up their Goodies along the way :)  Time zones may be different, so if you don't see anything yet on your travels, be sure to check back!!
