Q&A

Occasionally I have people ask me questions in the comment section of my blog or in my e-mail and I love the questions and I'm always happy to answer them but I'm also completely scatter brained and it occasionally occurs to me weeks later that I never answered the question! I always intend to, I sometimes just put it aside and think I'm going to come back to it later that day when I have more time and then I never do. Lame. :)

SO, to apologize for my recent string of unanswered questions, here are a few common questions and their answers.

Where can I find the artwork you're using for Clarissa's room?
The artist is an amazingly talented women named Suzanne Wolcott. She has a TON of beautiful artwork of little girls that I'm completely in love with. There are several places on the internet to find her work, but I order from her Etsy site.

What paint colors did you use in Clarissa's room? Valspar Paris Mint and Purpling Dawn.

What kind of camera do you have? A Canon Rebel and a Canon 40D.

What video camera did you just buy? It's called a Flip and it's insanely simple to use. I don't know if I'd buy one to use as your only video camera, because it doesn't have very many features, like a lot of zoom or whatever, but it's awesome for web videos, which is what I bought mine for.

What is your e-mail address? It occured to me recently that there's no e-mail link or anything on my blog. I think I'll add one, but in the meantime, my e-mail address is Wenders11@aol.com.

What Korean childrens CD's do you have?
I have two.
Sing 'N Learn Korean is awesome because the book has a page in it with all the songs written out with Korean pronunciations so that you can learn to sing the songs, but the womans singing voice in the CD is irritating and no all that fun to listen to. I like the book though because that's how we've learned to sing songs like Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.

Teach me More Korean has super cute songs that are sung by kids,so it's a really fun CD to listen to in the car with the kids, but there are no Romanized translations in the book. Meaning the songs are translated into English words, and they are also written in Korean Hangul, but unless you can read Hangul, it won't teach you the Korean pronunciations, which makes it harder to learn the songs.

Overall they're both awesome books/CD's though and I highly reccomend them!

What number are you on the waiting list? #7. (OK, I'm TOTALLY kidding. If you have to ask that question, you really haven't been listening to me whine for the past two months. Catch up!) :)

I can't remember any other questions, but if you've asked me a question that I never answered, please ask again. I promise to do better this time!

Can I add a question? :) Where (or, how) did you create your cute blog layout?

I wanted to add that I also use a Canon Rebel and it may be the most beautiful camera I have ever used!
