New Year, BABY!

Another shiny ball drops in NYC and another NYE is in the books now! 

The black-eyed peas have been eaten, the tamales, the ham...and frankly, more food than any one human should consume.  Still, we do because we can... and perhaps more importantly we want to! :)

Of course, the next logical step in the road to 2013 is setting a New Year Resolution.  You've heard all the statistics of how few people will actually stick with them.  But, that matters not!  We must set them and we will!... Or WILL we?

While you decide IF you'll set a resolution we scoured the Internet to find some funny resolutions:

5 Resolutions you wouldn't keep (or want to) and 5 Resolutions you might actually keep!!

Happy 2012!!

5 Resolutions you wouldn't keep (or even want to).
1. I will find out why I have 9 email addresses.
2. I will stop Facebook posting or texting someone who is 2 feet away from me.
3. I will stop watching the The Biggest Loser while eating chips or ice cream.
4. I will spend less than $1864.32 on Starbucks coffee this year.
5. I will stop pinning things on Pinterest in the belief that I will actually do them, make them, create them, eat them...etc.

5 Resolutions you might actually want to keep:
1. I will spend more time 'Pinning', because I don't do it enough.
2. I will exercise less.
3. I will procrastinate more.
4. I will watch more Reality TV.
5. I will do less laundry and incorporate the piles into my home decor.

Well, hello! It's nice to meet you!

It's a funny think how life "works".  We have to sort of chuckle at its ironies and paths that lead us to people in our lives. And our chance meeting is complete evidence of that!

Our meeting was meerly by chance and neither of us could have imagined would lead to where we are today.

Somewhere between the paper and this scissors at a scrapbook store in a Phoenix suburb, we realized we shared an unsatiable hunger for all things creative! 

Years passed, babies were born and we've forged a remarkable friendship,  sharing not only an interest in paper pretties and crafts, but also the joys of marriage, motherhood and faith. 

If you're around us enough...or even just a few minutes, you might here an odd nickname we have for each other...'bird, birdy or depending on the situation... bird brain."

It's just a term of endearment for us, as we consider ourselves birds of a feather (Mon)ge and (Mell)strom who flock together, previously just in daily life and now in a business dream we call MonMell Designs.

And we aspire to help you feather your nest!
