Great illustrations by Gumball Grenade

I've been totally smitten (I love that word, btw) with Etsy again. There are some really great sellers that have caughter my eye. Gumball Grenade has some of the neatest little prints. Ok, I'm not about to write a review of Tanya's work, just wanted to tell all my readers and vistors to go check out her Etsy shop. Yeah, I'm a chump and haven't got anything from her yet, but I'm waiting til we finish re-doing the girls room so they can help me choose what they'd like. Oh! You've got to see the print titled "Your Wish", I'm thinking that is my absolute fave. I love the little guy in the striped pajamas that shows up in lot of the prints.

So, if you guys get a minute....go check out Thanks!

Things in common

While checking out my own profile here at blogger, I was checking to see if any of my interests matched others. Well, the simple ones do. Like reading, writing, rugby...but my more off the wall ones like "wrapping up in a fuzzy blanket" and "riding with the top down" put me in a category all alone. LOL! So, I started to look at some of the people that matched my music interests. Well...that was kinda weird. So we like the same music. Big deal, right? Well, of those profiles that had the same music, also had other commonalities. Like reading Harry Potter or loving to write. Interesting to me none the less.

I think as much as we all like to think that we are individuals, we do things to keep us in groups. No one really likes be alone. It's just interesting in what connects us. Like my friend Daniel from Ottawa, Canada. Dan and I met on the Rugbyguide website. We have some other things in common besides our love for rugby or our desire to harass the admin at the site. Just like my friends in my adoption group. My friends Tonni, Dawn and Sharon. Not only did we all adopt at the same time, we each have a craft that we enjoy. Bows, Tutus, Websites, Clothes and my jewelry...who'd have thought? Karen, if you read this...let me know if you make stuff too!! :-) I don't want to leave you out.
