Big Sister....Little Sister

This is my sister and I
(Christmas circa 1977)

As you can see, we were
pretty much stuck to each other
(and always looking for a photo op.)

As we grew older
our interests have grown and changed as
we discovered that we did not have to wear
the same clothes and have matching hairstyles.
(who came up with that whole "twins have to match" thing anyway?)

My sister is definitely my other half.
As I am somewhat creative, she is crazy creative.
She is an amazing artist
(I can barely write yet alone draw)
and she has this incredible eye for style.

I've been asking
(hounding is more like it)
my sister to start her own blog
and share her talent with the rest of ya'll
out here in blogland.

Well, today she finally caved in.


without further adieu......
I present my little sister,
my other embryo.....

She's already posted three posts in one day
as she is insane
(or hopped up on Starbucks...i dunno.)

Please stop by and show her some bloggy love.
I think ya'll will like her...alot.
I'm kinda partial....since we shared a womb and all.

She will definitely have you laughing.

P.S. ....
If she's not using her best manners let me know.....
(cuz I'm gonna tell Mama.)

"7 Things You Never Knew and Probably Never Even Considered Wanting To Know" about me.

1. I started going gray when I was 17.
       I faithfully color my little gray patch.

2. In January I will be a survivor.
It will be five years since I was diagnosed
with ovarian cancer and I had a hysterectomy.
I've gained considerable weight and have hot flashes
but I'm alive.

3. I met my husband at a wedding rehearsal dinner.
I had swore that I would never come back to this town
and now I live here.
God has a sense of humor.

4. I have four children.
Alex, 17
Daviss, 11,
and Tori, 7.

5. I secretly long to live in San Francisco again.
It's just not that great to raise kids.
I want an apartment, a mini cooper and my dog...that's it.

6. I love the beach.
It's so peaceful to me.
(even though our water is icky brown)

7. I hate to do laundry.
It's like the plague.
It keeps coming back....eeech.

Now on to 7 blogs that inspire me

Please go and stop by these lovely blogs.
Make sure you bring a hankie and smelling salts.
MAJOR drooling and swooning will take place...I promise.

I'm off to get started on my christmas ornaments
set up my shop.
ETSY that is.
Six in One Hand is now on Etsy!!!!

I'll give you the 4-1-1 on Friday for her grand opening!!!!
