To make it appealing to a 15 year old, I used Tim Holtz idea'ology metal ware and salvage stickers. Brad loved it.

Stan, Shelley and Brad joined us for an Indian meal later on that night...I think I look a bit worse for wear!
But Shelley had plenty to say!

In between all the preparation and celebrating birthdays and our anniversary I have manged to make a little mini book for a friends daughter....what I really need to do is get down to creating some more scrapbook pages for my classes....I'm sure there will be some great family pages after this weekend!

The book has been enlightening though so its worth a mention.....its called "blink" by Malcolm Gladwell. He's fast becoming known as one of the 'modern thinkers' of our time.
It's about how we use our intuition to size up people/situations' in an instant- he calls it 'thin slicing' Its more than that though, Malcolm suggests that although we all think we make up our own minds and operate free will in our lives, there are times when we are manipulated - now I'm not talking about blatant stuff here - (we all know that everybody manipulates to get what they want) but the subtle ways in which our subconscious is affected and can cause us to make snap judgements that are often prejudiced. Or so subtle that our behaviour, or reactions are altered!
So I'm trying to become wiser and retrain my subconscious! So big changes afoot in the life of ME
Check the book out - its probably not a choice for a holiday read but if you are into self growth, its worth a look.
Bye for now
