200,000 crept up on me

Well it appears that with me taking my time and trying not to burn the candle at both ends. Another milestone crept up on Sugar and Spice. Funny I never thought I would have gotten one hundred thousand views in just under a month. It seems like yesterday I was making a big to do about 100,000 and now 200,000 has come and gone.

I am new to the community as a real person. It wasn't that long ago I was a nameless lurker who was terrified to even leave a comment on anyone's post. It really hasn't been that long. I started my blog on December 5th and in under three months it has gotten more then I had ever expected. I met some of the most wonderful people and new friends. I am truly humbled by all of this.

So to all of this wonderful community, especially to the active members who leave their thoughts in the comments to encourage, Thank you all so very much.

Tails Tails Tails

This was another wonderful cap from my friend Linda Mallone. I believe this is a great way to depict Liz. Leave her some love in the comments. She deserves it.

Even Steven

With this cap being about witch craft I found the perfect video to go along with it. Or at least I feel I did. But I love Emma Watson, and she did play a pretty witch in the Harry Potter movies. This cap was made for a friend at the Haven, Lady Victoria, who took part in my 2-4-1 captions. I hope you all like it.

She is so worth it

Where's the trust

This was a cap for a new friend named Raven. She participated in my 2-4-1 offer at Rachel's Haven. She said in her preferences that she enjoys a good transformation with all the details. I too enjoy this. I know everyone always say's that its been over done but I still love it. Anyway I chose this pic for her cap and I think it came out pretty good. The image is so sexy and the way she is enjoying her legs and smiling at the viewer just worked so well. Hope you all like it.

Slow Changes

This was for Miss Linda Mallone. She has made me some amazing caps in the last couple of weeks. I loved this picture and I don't think I know too many of my friends from this community that wouldn't trade places with Linda in a heart beat. I know I would. ;)

Self Control

I will tell you all something. I am very happy to say that taking it easy was a great decision. I feel like there has been a load taken off of my shoulders. Funny thing is, now I want to cap like crazy and I have a day or two to give in to my cravings. I hope you are not mad at me for my little time off. But believe me when I say if I didn't take it my caps would have begun to suffer from it. I hope you all like my little addition to Tranzmutes previous Sisters of Fate cap. I changed the editors name so I could make it into a personal one for her. And considering how he plowed Katie on the desk I felt Plowed by Sponge was appropriate for the cap. I love this band.

Anyway, I wanted to know exactly who is reading these anyway. And for those who already post comments, Thank You so much. Believe me when I say they mean everything to me. I wanted to ask a question and maybe see who answers it. Last week or so a new friend of mine, Dee, who needs no introduction. If you do not know who she is you better find out. You don't know what you are missing out on. Dee-lusions of Grandeur is her blog and you can see many of her caps at the Haven as well. Dee asked a question on her blog and it didn't get the response I think it deserved. I was really excited to hear some of the responses. The question was ,

What was your earliest TG memory? I've had quite a few as a youngster, so perhaps if you share yours below, I will post some more spread out over the next week or two. Were you jealous of slumber parties and makeovers? Curious to what was going on at the beauty parlor instead of the barber shop? Feel free to talk about it below.

I responded with one of my favorite memories. I know there must be more then Dee and myself out there that had some good ones. So if you would be so kind as to tell me your favorite one or one that stands out most. Just leave them in the comments. I will post my response here and then I hope to hear your memories.

 First off I know this one isn't my earliest but it is one that stands out in my mind.

I had a friend who lived up the street from me. She and I were always together. She was such a tom boy. I actually remember being in a Christmas concert when I was maybe 7 or 8 years old. She was right in front of me during the performance. If anyone were to take notice of me out of the other 100 plus children on stage they probably would have seen me staring at her the whole show.

She always wore jeans and sneakers. To me she was just one of my friends. But that night she was wearing a dress and white tights. I remember actually being jealous of her and what she was wearing. I remember feeling that I would give anything to switch places with her..

And of course I had countless cousins that were the same way you explained. But for some reason that one particular moment stands out.

But to be perfectly honest Dee, I still have moment like this all the time. Somethings never change. ;)

Covering the story S.O.F.

This is yet another great cap by a good friend from the Haven. She goes by the name Tranzmute. I love this cap. It touched on a ton of buttons for me. Let her know what you think by giving her some love. The Sisters of Fate have become somewhat popular for my friends over at the Haven. And I do so love when they make their version of these characters. Thanks for a great cap Luna. I Loved it..

I felt like this song fit well with this cap. "When they come for me i'll be sitting at my desk with a gun in my hand wearing a bullet proof vest. Singing my, my ,my how the time does fly when you know your gonna die by the end of the night."

Kevin of the Sisters

Well this is the last of my 2-4-1 offers. Raven who is another new friend I met at Rachel's Haven, made her amazing version of The Sisters of Fate. I think she did a great job. And told her story so well to the picture. This may be the longest time in the past 2 months that I had this blog where I didn't post a thing of my own. (Except when I got sick) I have actually taken some time and thought about this. I really think I want to make a few less caps throughout the week. I have a very demanding job and a family. I try my best to make quality caps as well. And for the people who come and visit my blog, I really appreciate all of your support. And let me tell you, comments will get you everywhere.

But on another note, I, aside from my blog, I am just like most of you. I like to read TG stories and captions. I like reading TG Comics as well.  But having a blog really cuts into that time that I used to surf and read other blogs by artists that are probably much better then myself. And I really enjoyed reading their work. I still keep up on a few of my favorites but there are a ton of sites I would love to catch up on.

Now so everyone can breath easy, I am not stopping my site. I have no intention to ever stop captioning. I love it way too much. I believe my friend Dee's actual words were, "Katie is like a kid in a candy store." Pertaining to my recent membership to the greatest site ever, Rachel's Haven. But I am going to slow down a bit. I am going to enjoy this wonderful community that has always been here for me. I am going to read through other blogs and I am not going to get myself into a full blown anxiety attack if I haven't posted something in the last 4 hours. LOL!

And for those of you who read my blog everyday I believe that you probably do genuinely like my work and you will still stop by from time to time. Ha! I don't want to toot my own horn or anything but I have put out over 200 caps in just, just over 2 months. And I am proud of that. What I am most happy about is meeting all the new friends, I really want to just name them all but I wouldn't have enough time. This little blog started out a short two months ago with one loyal friend, Miss Hailey Pixley. And she still is a great friend. And if you haven't been over to "A Tights Spot" yet then what are you waiting for.

Again, above all else, thank you everyone for putting Sugar and Spice on the map. I really love doing the work. I also feel like I need to get back to my roots and start writing the stuff that pushed all my buttons.  If you have anything to comment, please leave one. Even if its just a simple hello. And don't forget to leave Miss Raven some love for the wonderful cap.  

Thanks everyone for reading my ramble.

Sometimes Justice takes time

I have been going through a bit of a pattern lately. I usually can make a few caps a day. But my life is getting a little more complicated at the moment. So I have been going through small breaks where I do not have the time I was used to. But it seems to work out that the girls from the Haven make me some wonderful caps like this one from AnneOniMouse who needs no introduction to the community. I have been following her work long before Katie Mills surfaced. If you haven't seen her work please check out one of her sites. You can get to her other sites from here as well.

I am so happy all the girls like the characters on our blog. And the write and define them so wonderfully. And when I seem to be stuck with no time. They make it possible that you still have great TG Caps to read. And in return I have caps that I owe them and then I produce more work.. Its a amazing cycle that seems to be working as of late. And with caps like these I wouldn't change it for the world..

New Neighbors

I would like to present you all with another one of Miss Linda Mallone's caps from the Haven. She did an excellent job on yet another Sisters of Fate story. She seems to have become very smitten with the Sisters Characters and she does an wonderful job on how she explains just enough so that the Sisters do not lose their mysterious angle. I know everyone really enjoyed her first post because it got over 1200 hits in the end. So I know you will be squirming in your seats when you read her newest cap.. As always, give our dear Linda some love in the comments below. She deserves it. Great Cap Linda.

Next stop Society Normal

A New friend of mine, Lady Victoria, at Rachel's Haven took me up on my 2-4-1 cap offer by making a wonderful Society Normal cap. I love everything about it. The story fits the image so well. She also has her own cap site called Codex of Corruption. I was looking through her site and it is amazing work. Definitely worth a look if you have a moment. But This is her first time guest capping on Sugar and Spice, so give her a little love in the comments. I think this cap is so well worth a comment.

John's wish comes true

A Prom to remember

Hot for Teacher

She knew everything

Thanks for the Cap

Keep your eye's peeled.

I am really in the mood to cap tonight and I have about 6 people to cap over at Rachel's Haven. If you would like to start capping and really do not want to start your own blog. Go to the Haven and make an account. Go into the FORUM and then go down to "You Cap Me, I Cap You" and look through the first 3 folders of members that are active and pick anyone you want. Click on their name and look at their preferences. Then make a cap using any program you want that is made from the persons preferences. Seriously, that's all there is to it. Then click back on their name, click NEW TOPIC. Name your cap and say a little something about it.... ( Hope you like it, my first cap)  Then  ask one of the admins for a folder and they will help you with that. Once you capped someone and have a folder make your own preferences and wait to be capped and that is it my friends.. It is such a great place and so much fun. I have met so many people there and have made so many new friends..

Even if you don't want to cap, you should join just to see everything there is to look at. There is so much art and caps to check out. I hope to see some new faces there. Have a great night and keep your station tuned in. I am in the mood to cap tonight...

Rick isn't happy

Having a heat wave

Every year, around February I begin to really hate the winter. I am one of the few people I know that actually enjoys the coming of the winter. I love the changing of the seasons. I feel its nice not to have the same weather all year. Although I did love San Diego where every day is a beach day. But by the end of February I have had it up to my eye balls with the cold and the snow. I guess that is also a little weird because my birthday is in February.

At the Haven the new contest is all about candy or ice cream. Basically it has to be about sweets. That's when I got this wonderful idea to make a summer time cap in the middle of the coldest stint of this winter yet. Now I do not know where all of you live but I am from the Northeast of the U.S. and its been a consistent 10 degrees here for about a month with very little warm ups. 

I made this caption for the February contest at Rachel's Haven in hopes to warm everyone up just a little. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed making it.

A weekend conference

A new friend at the Haven, Linda Mallone, has made me a trade cap. But when she capped me she decided to make a cap with one of our universe characters in it. Now everyone here already knows how much I love when someone else takes a character of mine and puts their spin on it. Well when I read this one I might as well have jumped for joy. Linda had used the "Sisters of Fate" and she did an AWESOME job.. This is her first appearance on "Sugar and Spice". So leave her some love in the comment section. I have no doubt this will be a popular cap on the blog. Enjoy, I know I did.
