……well, not quite it is only me, but still. I did one of these posts last year, and because I am a soppy thing at this time of year I am doing another this year, and I will probably keep on doing them till you just roll your eyes when you see it and think to yourself “Oh crap, there she goes again, will she ever learn no one reads these posts because they are soooo dull” LOL! I don’t care, I’mma keep on doing them 😛
This year in SL has been incredibly eventful for me, the most exciting by far. This time last year my store was just starting to grow, and I was so so happy with where it was. I never thought for a second that it would just keep on growing. My store group at this moment has 3559 members!!!! I couldn’t have imagined that, ever. I have so so so many people I have to thank for that, I’ll write a little about some of them here, I will try not to bore you too much, and I will try my best not to miss anyone out. If you think you should be mentioned in this post and aren’t, please feel free to kick me! I’ve not missed you out intentionally, I’m just frazzled trying to get ready for my RL Christmas.
Great big huge thankies to:
* My wonderful customers – THANK YOU for buying my stuff, and for coming back time and again to grab my new releases, gifts and hunt prizes. You’ve no idea the smile you bring to my face every single time one of you makes a purchase and I think to myself “yaaayyyy, someone likes what I make!” .::Pink Sugah::. would be long gone without each of you, so thank you again, and please stick with me for 2014 there is much much more to come!
* Every event and hunt organiser who has invited me to take part,or accepted my application. Every invitation and acceptance boosts my confidence and gives me a new challenge to relish. Special thanks here to Emms (Bewba was the first event to take a chance on me), and to Zee and Naughty for putting up with my inability to send a full perm picture….ever!
* Gothic – My sooper dooper new store manager, personal assistant, and lifesaver! It took me a few tries to get the perfect person for this role, now I have found her I am NOT letting her go. Thank you for everything you have done for me already and most importantly for becoming such a thoughtful and kind friend.
*Big Boobie Babes \o/ My big busty family I love you!!!!! You brighten my day, you make me cry with laughter, you politely laugh at my jokes. My SL would be a LOT less colourful without you. Deej, Xana and the rest of the team…..well just because I think we make an amazing team and between us we keep the group not just running but growing daily.
*My Bloggers – Joyce and I have been ruthless recently, the ones who remain are wonderful! Any designer would be lucky to have you. I would like to especially thank Brookie and Kelly as my longest standing bloggers and of course to Joyce for managing the group for me and for being a wonderful friend.
*The Sugah Bunnies – For being beautiful and for being so patient with me when I have to try 76 hairs on for a picture and then going back to the first one 😛
*Maggie, Rachel, Colleen and the staff and readers of BUSTed magazine – This has to be one of the biggest highlights of my year. I can’t thank Maggie and Rachel enough, Maggie for trusting us with her baby and Rachel for thinking enough of me to ask me to join her and Colleen on this exciting adventure. Thank you to the staff and readers who have welcomed the three of us so warmly. I cannot wait for the January edition to be published, it has been hard work getting it ready in time for everyone to take a break for Christmas and it is going to be brilliant, you won’t be disappointed 🙂
* My Friends – Soft – for always being there for me, and for just being so damn proud of me, it makes me feel on top of the world. Kittii, for putting up with my moods and for keeping me abreast with the online world of amusing cats. Issy, for listening to me rant, and for being beautiful both inside and out. Deej, for all the help I have roped you into giving me and for listening to me rant (I don’t do that mush ranting, honest). Ice, for coming back into my life and being mad as a box of frogs. Sammy, for proving time and time again that nerds are hawt and to Cache for being there and being you!
and last is Nico, for being just incredibly special (in both senses of the word :P), putting up with my inability to stop working, ever. Boosting my confidence, giving me honest opinions, and ideas, for loving shoes almost as much as I do, and for THE most thoughtful gifts. I could go on but I am in danger of embarrassing us both more than I already have so I will shut up.
Phew, ok, I think that is is. I am so so sorry if I missed you out, I could go on all night with all the people I want to talk about, but I know this is sentimental and mushy and I have probably made a few people throw up their mulled wine already, so I will stop here and just say to you all:
Have a wonderful Christmas and a spectacular 2014 *Cheers*
