OMG ! Its finally here in my hot little hands - the very first copy of the very first print run of my very first book!! 

I was sooo nervous opening the package.  It was wrapped first in a post pac, then cardboard box, then bubble wrap, then paper and then about building the anticipation!!!   It was like being the only player in a game of pass the parcel and I'm the WINNER!!!

It looks fantastic!

Excuse me, I just 'blogged'!

Kristy Lee Rackham Full time parent, part-time nursing student, writer, key-note speaker, facilitator, entrepreneur... I subscribe to the belief that if you're clever with your time and where you put your energy, you CAN have the cake and eat it too! Still working on what flavour to make the cake though! My passion is creating... creating anything, in any form makes me happy! My goal is to lead my children (and others!) by example... its a big task and Im learning so much about myself through their eyes. As they grow, so do I! Most importantly, I want to show them that if you have a dream, you can achieve it with a bit of dedication, discipline, guts and a belief that anything is possible. So I guess that I want to teach them to create as well... create their own destiny! Email me at, I'd love to hear from you.
