I found it via a search engine, trying to find nail techs or training courses in my area. Glad I found it as it contains so much helpful information! Dont know what I would do without it!

I had seen GMG at the Leeds academy and then was reading my Scratch Mag and there he was - saw the link - wish I had found it earlier:green:

Thank you Sam, Sam, Geeg, Sassy, Sandi, Glynnis and all who have put so much effort into creating such a fantastic, interesting site - you're like my second family:hug:

Went searching through www.archive.org to see if I could find some of the first reminants of the site.

Sadly, I could only find the old entry page:

oldgeek.JPG

And the into text which is a serious shame because the pics were really priceless. Anyone around remember the dancing Nitrile glove? Or Chemical 'Exposure'? Geez. I would give a mint to see those crappy animated gifs again :)

However searching archive.org for samuelsweet.com brought up the early days of this incarnation (although without the pics).

My trainer at CND recommended it when I was doing my L&P Foundation course a couple of years ago. I've learned loads from this site and its a great source of entertainment when I'm bored. The little Virtual Friend.

I'm a Yorkshire lass in Bristol :-)
From the brown updated CND education folio,
but I'd seen it in google searches lots of times, but never clicked on it!?!:confused:
Duh!
Now I feel like I'm actually heading in the right direction, and I see my standards & knowledge grow & grow, all thanks to Geeking, so...
A Big Thank you & Love to Samuel Sweet,
and to all of the fantastically knowledgeable geeks who've changed my life in a lovely way...​
maybe sad, definitely true! :lol:

I can't remember! I think one of the Creative educators told me about the site & I saw it in Scratch around the same time so thought I'd have a look. Glad I did, the geeks have really helped me when I've needed advice. :) Just hope I can do the same for other geeks.

I was doing a search on Creative and nail enhancements on Google and TNG kept popping up.

So I thought I'd check it out and "lurked" for a couple of weeks. Finally took the plunge and haven't slept or done any work since !

Keep racking me brains - but it won`t come
