    Not entering Ali, but I'd like to inform you that the banner on the frontpage of your website is always dropping down, so I see two banners. One still, and the other with changing images.
    Not sure if this is caused by my computer, but it the banner is placed on top making it impossible to click on the articles right under.

      It has something to do with Internet Explorer 9. The new upgrade did something funky to a lot of blogs and websites. Hopefully they figure it out or maybe some of the blogs need Explorer 9 compatible graphics now.

    Something exceptional about me.... this past year, as a second year law student, I conceived, planned and pulled off a symposium on very touchy issues, the first of its kind in the U.S. featuring the top legal names in the country. It was something no law student has ever done before.

      Thank you! It was the stress, albeit good stress, of that year that lead me to pick up scrapbooking and other crafts to help calm myself. Definitely a win win situation!

    Awesome giveaways. What makes me exceptional is that I am like a bug when it comes to creativity. Yes a bug! I am easily distracted by another creative thing much like a bug is attracted to lights. I don't know whether its a good or bad thing, but I think that makes me, me.

      Ali, what a wonderful giveaway today! Thank you! Wow, what a tough question. I've thought about it hard and I don't think there is anything exceptional or special about me but I do work with special needs children. I don't make much money but the joy and blessings that come from just being and working with them each day is enough for me.
