A Friend In Need

UPDATE 23rd June 2011

I've taken the decision to remove this post.  Unfortunately I have not received a very good response to it and I'm not prepared to bare my soul and tell you lots of deeply humiliating personal secrets if it's just going to be met with a wave of apathy.

My circumstances are still pretty dire.  I'm currently appealing the decision that led me into trouble and I've managed to arrange a payment holiday on my loan, so hopefully that will help me along a bit.

I'll keep the payment button on my blogs and I would still ask you that if you enjoy anything you see on here or the Scrapbook then please try and find it in your heart to leave me a little donation.  Anything you could afford would be gratefully received and will be a massive boost towards getting my life back on track.

I would like to sincerely thank the few people who did come to my aid and offer help in various forms.  Your generosity will not go unrewarded and forgotten.  It's times like this you really get to learn who your friends are.

Thank you.

New Café Press Goodies - Part 1

Those busy bees over at Café Press have been sourcing dozens of new products for us to offer our customers, so right now I'm in the process of updating all my shops (apart from the Christmas ones which will get an overhaul in the autumn).

With nearly 50 new items to add, design and price-check, this is no quick job! Four of the shops are ready to re-launch, so here's my pick of what's screaming "buy me" right now.

Sleep with Kevin the Octopus! Pyjamas available in a range of styles and colours for men, women and children.

As if all those teensy little hearts weren't cute enough, now you can wear them on a fun range of costume jewellery.

3 new water bottles add to the Sigg bottles already in store. A great choice of must-haves for your favourite sport.

If ever an accessory screamed to have a rosy red apple on it! Perfect for jazzing up your beloved gadgets.

Don't forget all these designs are available on all the products, feel free to mix and match to your heart's content. The five remaining animal designs will be getting upgraded next, so watch out for news on that and my second pick of the best new products.

To browse the stores, look for the buttons on the left of this page and just click on your favourite design.

Happy shopping!
