"The world is full fo people....

...who will go their Whole live and not actually Live one day. She did not intend on being one of them...

Thanks to my friend Dawn for this inspiration today! She sent me this great magnet from curly girl design . I am putting this on my mirror so that I read it every morning & remember the path that I am supposed to be on.

You have to check out curly girl design. I want every one her cards & magnets.


I was just speaking with my friend Brooke on the phone & made the big confession. Here it is.....yes, I was a sorority girl. Not only a sorority girl but the president of my sorority in my last year. Brooke, I'll leave you to your own confessions (hee!hee!). Now I don't regret it at all. I made amazing lifelong friends. I just find that now, almost 10 years later, people kind of jump to a conclusion about who you are (or were) when you say that.

The one thing I loved about being part of a sorority was the close bonds I built - there is always someone there to watch your back. Although there are both positives & negatives about the whole sorority system, there are very few organizations in college that encourage young women to support one another.

I'm thinking about this because I have now been groupless for about 2 months & although I needed that time to breath & reassess, I have to say that I am definately missing the support of a group. Hugs to Brooke & Lesa for being my mini group over the last few months. :)

Harry Potter Mania

We had such a blast at the Harry Potter Festival my town & the neighbouring town held last weekend. On Friday night there was a tour of Ballycastle (Hogwarts Academy) in our town:

We met all all the characters, including Harry himself! My little guy looked so cute in his little wizard hat but of course I FORGOT THE CAMERA! There were all kinds of little Harry's running around the place. It was so much fun!

You can read all about it in The Daily Prophet!

The rest of the weekend was spent relaxing at my parents. Sometimes it's nice to just be pampered by mom for a bit. I can't remember the last time I slept in until 8:30 am. Thanks Mom!

Oh Yeah! And here's my new listing this week...

Great fabrics imported from the UK. Love 'em! Not back to work on the other two sets I want to list over the next week.....

Summer Reading!

I love travel books. My husband & I met while we were both teaching ESL in South Korea & after that we backpacked thru parts of Asia. Our honeymoon was 2 weeks backpacking thru Costa Rica. So, I have read many a travel book. A friend, knowing this, gave me this hilarious take on travel books. Get it "Fake Tan". I loved it!

Practice Makes Perfect

Ok, I've been reading & reading on photography & recently joined an ebay photography group. Trying some stuff out today.

Here is my first pic:
Ok J is a little bit off centre but the background blurred nicely. We would also need to ignore the snotty nose, lol.
Here's my next one:

And here's one of Genghis:

Colours could pop a little more but I'm workin on it! Any tips????
