The FOBTY speed test

Ok... so I would not make a good secretary for many reasons: I'm unorganized, I stress about small stuff, don't drink or make coffee... but who'd have thought I was such a bad typist? Well this week's FOBTY has brought this weakness into the spotlight! :)

I guess that teaching certificate is even more valuable to me now! LOL!

First let me start by saying how fabulously lucky I am in the first place to work for such wonderfully talented designers in the first place. Now with school starting, the new program we're piloting at school, my new computer finally arriving, and just plain managing life with my family, I was VERY busy and had not scrapped at all, let alone made any layouts to showcase my designers' gorgeous stuff. :(

But each one of them were so understanding... I was ready to quit because I didn't feel like I was carrying my weight... but they all said no problem. They have been SO wonderful...

So today I'm scrapping- YAY!!!!! And I want YOU to check out their stores: Andrea Gold (who btw has a 40% off coupon in September's DST Insider, Christy Skaggs, Amanda Kay and Garden Girl Designs. Also, I have a new guest gig (I was so busy I would have forgotten about it)- so also check out One Memory At a Time. :)

Ok... now onto the FOBTY. This is right up my alley as I'm reading the Twilight series and with halloween right around the corner, who wouldn't like to find out if they're "vampire material"? :)

You Could Be a Vampire... If You Had To

Like most people, the thought of being a vampire has crossed your mind. But you're not sure if you'd do it, even if you could.

Living forever doesn't sound half bad, if you could live forever with the people you love the most.

But do vampires even love? And would the vampire version of you even be you?

It's all too much to contemplate. Luckily, the chances of you ever becoming a vampire are astronomically low.

What you would like best about being a vampire: Living forever

What you would like least about being a vampire: Blood stained teeth

I've got to get some planning done for my sweet husband- his birthday is tomorrow and I want to do something nice for him, so here's a quick FOBTY.

You Are 76% Real

You know who you are, and you're pretty darn comfortable with yourself.

Like everyone, you struggle with the parts of yourself that aren't so great...

But you're good at accepting who you are and not dwelling on your faults.

As a result, you're confident, optimistic, and very real.

So do you like my new digs?

I was tired of my old blog and wanted an update, but really didn't want to spend all day fiddling with html coding... and so I finally caved in and got one of Zoe Pearn's Blog in a Box kits to make things easier for me. Not only that, but the MARVELOUS Becca (aka Becca Boo) of Graffiti Chicks helped me when I had one little catch (darn photobucket settings). Anyway, I hope you like the new look... I'll be redoing my family blog at some point soon too but I've got a HUGE headache and need to take it easy tonight!

Be sure to stop in at Graffiti Chicks or in Zoe's store to check out their fabulous stuff!

Being a teacher, I love school supplies (yes... I'm a nerd)! So this week's FOBTY was right up my alley! Take the Crayola Color Quizzer and see how you fare! As for me, I'm a "Color Genius"... but missed 29!!! Of course, many of the ones I missed are "Kids Choice Colors" that were named way after my coloring days. :) Got to run- sorry for the quick post, but I'll be back soon!

Drum roll...

I'm now a guest CT for Amanda Kay at Sunshine Studio Scraps! Here's her blog announcement. I'm so excited to be working with her, even short term. I'm sure you freebie hunters know her, even if the name doesn't ring a bell yet. Her blog is Perfectly Imperfect (now you know who I'm talking about)! She has done lots of the freebie collab kits with the Sunshine girls (including the fabulous Flergs) which is how I found her designs. You'll love to see what she's got planned and in the meanwhile, check out her store at Sunshine Studio Scraps. Well gotta run and get some things done for school before tomorrow's open house. :)
