A RAK and another tag...

So lucky me got another fun surprise in the mailbox yesterday! Denise sent me this great card - love the colors and the velvet ribbon (I really do need to get some of those darling little safety pins). She also included some stamped Bella images. Man, for not owning any of the stamps, I now have quite a collection ;) Thanks so much, Denise!

And speaking of Bellas, I sharpened a few of my Prismacolor pencils and came up with an image that I actually like, so now I just need to find a home for the little lady on some cardstock. Maybe I'll even manage it by the end of the week!

And lastly, I've been tagged by Wanda and am now supposed to share 7 weird things about myself, then tag seven others. Only seven things?!? Hmmmm...
  1. I am a complete klutz, and have managed to hurt myself in some rather comical ways. I am now very wary of sheetrock, as it has left me "damaged" twice. Never take your eyes off of the seemingly innocent white stuff resting against a wall. And don't get me started on coconuts!
  2. I hate Doritos and cheese popcorn, but like Cheetos.
  3. My first "real" job was as a waitress in high school. My first day, I went over to help clean up a glass of water that a nicely dressed older woman had spilled. In the process, I managed to knock over her husband's glass, sending the ice water directly into his lap. Thankfully they were very good sports about the whole thing, but I was absolutely mortified and seriously considered quitting.
  4. I was born and raised in Montana but have never been skiing.
  5. My first college major was mechanical engineering. Whatever was I thinking?!?!?
  6. I did not date until I was in college, and I had only one other boyfriend before my hubby.
  7. I'm only 5'4" but wear size 11 shoes. I would also like to add that 99% of cute shoes are only available through size 10. It stinks (oh, and that would refer to my feet, too!)

And now for the fun part of making others squirm! I think I'm going to tag some bloggers that I love checking out for "fresh" inspiration. Great techniques, and a style markedly different from my own, so it stretches me. (And I may not have left comments on all of them, so this could be a surprise for a few!)

Thanks for visiting my blog!

How weird - I got tagged to give so many weird things about myself some months ago now ... I think it was five or six weird things when I got it; but I'm sure it's the same tag though. I've had a peruse through your profile and blog and what an idyllic life you seem to lead. I know you will laugh when you see this and say "idyllic?? with my little monsters giving me the runaround!!" but you have to compare sometimes to things you haven't got ... I found you quite by accident, pressing that "next blog" button at the top. I do a blog too, you know. It is called gledwood2.blogspot but it's quite different from yours -- more my kind of secret diary online. So you can poke through my innermost confessions. I made all the wrong choices in life and I'm still living the results. I try to keep a positive blog as a warning and as a message that there is more to my kind of life than the stereotypes you hear in the news ...
Anyway !! Take it EZ and all the very best to you
