Scraplifting: borrowing or "lifting" and idea from another scrapbooker. This is a new term for me. I don't think I've ever taken a layout from someone else and used it for myself. I'm not that organized. LOL.
Image Chef does look like fun! Thanks for the link Katie. I love your sidewalk story. When we moved into our current house the city was replacing parts of the sidewalk (at our expense). After they laid the new cement my husband got out there with a stick and wrote all of our names - hey, we had to pay for the concrete so why not? We decided to have our kids put their hands in it by their names as well. It was great fun.
I have found photo sites to be very handy when scrapbooking our vacations. Often I will by postcards during our trip to use instead of my own photographs - let's face it - they hire professionals to get the perfect shot that I will never get. Well worth .25 - especially for those impossible night shots. When finishing our scrapbook for Disney World, I realized that we had done a lot that I didn't or couldn't get pictures for. That's where the photo sites came in. Search for whatever you are looking for and you will find a pic for it. I copied and pasted into my photo file, put on memory card and printed out at the local store. I was thrilled with the results. Give it a whirl, I think you'll become an addict. :o)
You know how they work - we've all seen the ugly products through the ages - mugs, etc. I think these Moving Color shower tiles are a better use of the technology. Even though I think it is a neat product, I don't need my kids to have more excuses to waste water in the shower.
I've heard some good comments about the Dyson vacuum cleaners. I would like to try one. I have a Kirby that my husband bought and spent a small fortune on (over $1000!). It's okay but I hate having to attatch and re=attatch the accessories - plus it weighs a TON. I guess the only thing I like about it is that it is self propelled. Once you get used to that - using any other vacuum is too much work.
I must say, I'm not a huge fan of poetry as a whole. There are poets out there that do like a lot. Then there are poems like this that I just don't get. It doesn't seem to be a poem I would want written about me and my wedding.
I don't know how the lunch program works in Great Britian but I do know how it works here in the US. How does Jamie Oliver propose parents to make their kids hot luches? How are they going to stay hot? Sounds like he would rather have us let our kids buy thier lunch from school - of course most of us moms know how utterly fattening those lunches are. Who serves cheese sticks as a main course? Our school - that's who. I'll stick with ham & cheese with fruit and chips Jamie. You got a problem with that - come see me.
