Hmmm...almost even.

You Are 45% Left Brained, 55% Right Brained

The left side of your brain controls verbal ability, attention to detail, and reasoning.

Left brained people are good at communication and persuading others.

If you're left brained, you are likely good at math and logic.

Your left brain prefers dogs, reading, and quiet.

The right side of your brain is all about creativity and flexibility.

Daring and intuitive, right brained people see the world in their unique way.

If you're right brained, you likely have a talent for creative writing and art.

Your right brain prefers day dreaming, philosophy, and sports.

So this weekend I am heading over to Folsom for my first ever big scrapping crop. It's a 12 hour event full of fun, scrapping and meeting new friends. Ashley is coming from the DT. Patti was supposed to come but she got super sick (get better!!). Lesle will be there, plus Patti S. who owns the store where it's going to be held. We are meeting at her Folsom store but she actually has a shop right across the street from my neighborhood too! So this should be fun. I think there are going to be about 25 people in all!

So in other scrapping news. Kaaren from the new kit review site Pampered Scrappers ordered one of my kits last week and put her review of it up today! I was very flattered by her nice comments! You can check out her site here. It's a very nice resource for anyone interested in scrapping with kits available from various sites!

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Say what?? I admit it, I'm 2 decades late to the game on this one. I had NO IDEA that ""Mary Mary" was a Monkees song! I always assumed it was a dope,ill,fresh jam from Run DMC until this weekend when my children changed the way I will forever hear this song. They are so into the old Monkees episodes right now it's ridiculous, and I usually "tune out" a bit when they are on, that is until I heard "Mary, Mary, where you going to?" blasting from the tube! I would do a side by side comparison but Sony BMG won't let youtube embed their version on blogger, so enjoy the Monkee's version on me!

I especailly love this version. It's like a poorly dubbed Gozilla film!

Snow and airplanes

So we had a pretty nice weekend around here. The weather was perfect! Saturday my dad came down and took the boys (minus one pouting six year old) to the snow. They had a blast!

They brought home a sled full of snow so Jacob could see it (and think about what he missed) and they had enough to make a snowman. This was the transformers snowman. He took on various shapes and ended with this version Nick made by himself.

Then of course, as all good grandfathers do, my dad gave the boys all a toy. This time it was rubber band wind up airplanes. Those little suckers were good for a full afternoon for fun.

Saturday ended with the boys throwing all remaining snow at the neighbor girls for our own little neighborhood snowball fight!

It was a good day!

Sale at the Store!

Thought I would pop in to let you all know that everything in the store is on sale, including all NoelMignon kits and new arrivals (new Jenni Bowlin I just got today is included)!!
Come on over...the sale lasts until next Monday!

And so the journey begins...

I have decided to at long last keep a journal, if you will, of the wit and wisdom I am exposed to every single day. Now where, you may ask, does this daily inspiration of thought come from? A witty, yet thought provoking blog? A daily article in the SF Chronicle? My children and their 4 year old senses of humor? No. I, my friends, have come to find that license plate covers make for quite the car trip and home conversations and thought sessions.

First off take mine. It simply states "You can't scare me, I have twins" proclaiming to the world that no matter how bad a driver you are you can't shake me...I have been to hell and back.

Today I saw an interesting cover that got me thinking. "Fat people have more to offer". Hmmmm..... Yes and no. I can see both sides of this coin.

Watch for more of my "license plate covers from CA" entries to come. One of my personal favorite "classics" is the old..."49% angel, 51% bitch"...I have to roll my eyes every time I see!!

Throwdown with Adrienne!

Oh girl...I'm joining you in throwback friday this week! This was the jam my girls and I used to cruise!!

Ok, so here's the scene, 4 teen girls in a red 2 seater Fiero (oh yeah...don't hate!) Sunroof off and all of our huge crunchy hair sticking out the top, but this was a good thing because the wind would only make our bangs higher and frizzier. Oaktown 357 blasting, slow cruising down the Esplanade in Chico CA. U turn at the Dairy Queen and do it all over. Good times people, good times!

Some sweet stuff!!

First off I have to start with a little bit of why my kids are so great. Last night Jason and I were working on my website and trying to figure out why it was double charging on shipping. The twins were asleep and Jacob was wandering around talking to us. He came up and gave me a big hug and said he wanted to have a website like mine. I told him we would work on it when he was 12. I took him to bed and put on some music and said goodnight. He yelled down the hall at me..."Mom, I'm a fan of your website"! So cute!!

Next...guess who's getting some leap year love?? ME!! I got an email from Memory Makers Magazine that my Hometown Layout will be their featured LO for the inspiration gallery on Feb 29th. So mark your calenders and look for me here on the 29th. Be there or be square!
