How's Your Spelling?

Over at Sweet Shoppe Designs, they had a quiz on their blog to see how well you are at spelling. I tried the quiz and here's my results:

Your Spelling is Good

You got 9/10 correct.

Your spelling is generally pretty decent. You are prone to a few mistakes, but the mistakes you make are pretty forgivable.

Good Pails to Have

I was looking at this blog,, and they are giving away a Good Pail to have!

The pails are super cute! Through March 31st, you can get free shipping on your order over $30. They have over 60 uses for the pails. I'm thinking I would use mine to hold rolled up flannel burp cloths. That way I could keep them out in livingroom. There are really cute patterns on the pails. Go check them out and be sure to check out momviews blog also! Better hurry if you want to try to win a pail!

Oh! Baby Buy Products: Babies have by-products.

This is a really neat blog to check out. Right now they are giving away some products from local bay area shops. They have highlighted the shops and give a little information on their products. They have found some neat finds that I probably would've missed if not for their blog. Go check them out and enter their contest! I am!

In our spare time

What do you do when you don't want to scrap or visit the regular forums you hang out in, while in front of the computer? Here's what we do:

I'm a gamer. I love playing games. Right now, my game choices are Zuma and Bookworm. I'm doing quite well, if I do say so myself! I also read a lot of blogs, too many of them, really!

She checks out MSNBC. She is up to date on all of the news stories. I think she'd rather read the news than watch the news anchors. Who can blame her, afterall, isn't Anderson Cooper on CNN? I have seen Bethany play some of the trivia games. The other day, while at her house, we played two trivia games. It was pretty fun, but she usually knows the answers much quicker than I do. Surprisingly, she is very good at the eighties trivia (she wasn't even a teen or preteen during that time period)

Over at Sweet Shoppe Designs, on their blog, you will find a dessert quiz. Feel free to head on over there to take it. We took the quiz and here's our results:


ANGEL FOOD CAKE - Sweet, loving, cuddly. You love all warm and fuzzy items. A little nutty at times. Sometimes you need an ice cream cone at the end of the day. Others perceive you as being childlike and immature at times.

**I personally think that this doesn't fit me, okay, I have been told I'm sweet, but that's it!**


BROWNIES - You are adventurous, love new ideas, and are a champion of underdogs and a slayer of dragons. When tempers flare up, you whip out your saber. You are always the oddball with a unique sense of humor and direction. You tend to be very loyal.

If I were a Nail Polish Color

OK, so I can't REALLY leave the blog alone for that long or stay off of the internet either! I've been posting more over at DigiShopTalk and trying to participate in some challenges at Sweet Shoppe Designs. If you are ever bored, go check out some of my layouts in my gallery.
I found this fun quiz over at Sweet Shoppe Designs on their blog.

Goodbye for now!!

We're sad to say we will be leaving the blog alone for a bit. We have decided that we need to step back and focus on our families. It's summer time so that means entertaining the kids and preparing them for the upcoming school year! We'll be absent from any message board/chat room we participated in also. We'll miss the friendships we have created, but we are sure you all can understand. We're not sure when we'll be back, afterall, family comes first!

I've decided that I need to leave crafting alone for awhile also. I really need to get my scrapbooking caught up for my kids first years, followed by every year after that! That's 13 years to catch up on! I almost have the third ones done and still haven't started the older two (which will be more of a challenge trying to remember dates and milestones - not to mention I'll be scanning in a lot of pics).

I've spent a lot of time on the message boards over at DAISIE Company. I loved that place, but it has taken a turn which I don't care for. But, I want to say a BIG Thank you to Nathan for all of his help he gave to me (as well as everyone else). I learned more from him about computers/hardware/etc than I ever thought I would, especially while on a crafty board! I appreciate the friendships I have made over there and hope to continue them outside of DAISIE. ~ Rachel
