It’s a mystery…

August 30, 2007 at 9:38 am 79 comments

Yes, it’s a mystery folks. I’ve ordered a new lens, checked on it’s progress and my new lens is in Hawaii. Honolulu to be exact. Here’s what I think it’s doing:


It looks relaxed, doesn’t it? Hope it doesn’t get wet. Or sandy. Or sunburnt.

And speaking of mysteries, I know grab bags are all the rage. Rather than putting one up in the SBB store, I’ve decided to make my freebies into grab bags for a while. There’s so many things in my freebie folder, just waiting to be let loose that I’ll put up a mystery bag each week for you to download, starting today!

There could be anything in there, and if you leave a comment here to let me know you’ve downloaded it, I’ll choose one comment at random on Friday night to get a $5 voucher to my store. You can grab the first Mystery Bag here.

Catch ya…
