Hello dear blog friends! I'm busy creating 4x4 fat book pages for a book I'm making with Jenny (Everyday is a Holiday) and Cerri (Little Pink Studio)!! The theme is "Being a girl"-how fun is that?!

Monday, May 21, 2007

Here is my latest collage. Had to take little break from pink! I love my pink, but once in a while I like to do something different. I am such a lucky girl- I joined my first swap with the most talented ladies!! It's a tag swap and we each make and recieve 12 tags, so the good mail just keeps coming for days!! I could definitely get addicted to this swapping thing! I have already signed up for two more because it's just so fun!! It's also making me try things I haven't tried before, but have been wanting to. So my new addictions are collage art, ATCs, and swaps! I better start selling some of my work to pay for the supplies!! What are you addicted to? I know without asking that most of you reading my blog are addicted to the same things! :D

To one who bears the sweetest name

And adds a luster to the same

Who shares my joys-

Who cheers when sad-

the greatest friend I ever had

Long life to her for there's no other.

Can take the place of my dear Mother.

Happy Mother's Day!!!

O.k.- Here it is ladies:

7 Random Facts about me:

1. I have only dated one guy- and I married him on the one year anniversary of our first date! We will be celebrating our 14th wedding anniversary in October! How lucky am I to have never had to "kiss any frogs" before I found my Prince Charming!!

2. I always said I would never have kids- I just could not imagine being anybody's mom. Now I have two little sweet boys and I could not be happier!! Kids make you strive to be a better person and make life so much more fun!

3. My favorite foods are cheese and chocolate- just not together.

4. I love scents that others probably would not- gasoline(the old kind, not the new kind), new tires, lumber yards, my Walmart brand dishwasher detergent... oh, I could go on and on.

5. I have a texture thing. I pretty much touch almost everything I see- especially when shopping, and I can't stand to touch silky fabrics- especially when my hands are cold. Yeah, I know I'm wierd.

6. I once was in a car accident and I still don't remember any of it. I have no idea how it happened. I had amnesia ( short term memory loss- not long term) for several hours afterwards and kept saying the same things over and over. When my husband showed up at the crash scene he said I was sitting there in a daze and I said "Hi Honey! What happened? You look nice!" over and over and over again! Then at the hospital he said I kept rolling my eyes around all wierd, looking a bit crazy. Guess I was just being silly, but he was more than a little worried that I would never be normal again- poor guy!

7. I really hate talking on the phone, unless it's to my mom and I pretty much just sit there and make her talk!

That's the best I could think of- it was hard to come up with some that weren't already in my 50 things about me post. I guess I'm supposed to tag 7 more people, but everyone I know in blogland has already been tagged for this.

Have a lovely day, ladies!

Busy creating!! Hope to get some more ATCs done soon! I think they may be my new addiction. But I do have some other things I need to finish first, like my tags for Tammy's tag swap and a mother's day present for my sweet Mama and a belated birthday card for my fabulous sister-in-law! Seems these holidays and birthdays always sneak up on me and my presents always late. I need to work on that.

I was tagged by lovely Dawn from Oh So Pretty to list seven random facts about myself. I'll have to think about what wierdness of mine I'm willing to share.

Have a lovely weekend ladies!

Hello dear blog friends! My sweet little boys with their unending energy and exuberance and unearthly volume have completely drained me of all mental and physical strength and functions. So how about a little eye candy? I can just click and not think. Above is a happy summery piece I made and below are glimpses of my art studio.
