five random facts & a sneak peek-a-choo.

Happy Doodle Land tagged me! By the way, check out her blog because she has some major cuteness going on there. Also, I wanted to share something she sent me a month or so ago. It's a lovely card, which I just had to frame! Thank you, again, Flora!!!



Here are five random facts about me:

1. I have a Sizzix machine, which I begged my sister, Budding Cook to buy for me a couple years ago. I convinced her that she could use it for her wedding (she did; she made this really cute confetti with a butterfly die and glued various black/white pictures of her and her husband in the centers. She sprinkled them all over the tables at the reception. Very cute). :) I also have a couple tag-a-longs, meaning I have two (why? I don't know. They were on sale. Enough said. :)). Despite the fact that I have purchased many dies for these machines, I have not used them. Yikes! I really just don't know how to incorporate them in my art. :(





2. I like the Princess Diaries series. :) It's a little embarrassing because I'm 27, but M. Cabot is such a good writer. When I read the first novel, I was disappointed because it contained some inappropriate topics and I would not recommend anyone under 16 reading it (the first one that is). But the second and third ones were much cleaner. :) I heard that there are 10 in the series, so I am looking forward to reading them.

3. I used to collect The Tick comic books. They remain one of my most prized possessions to this day. Egad.

4. I have to clean out my craft area and organize again because I have just been stuffing things into the drawers lately due to the fact that I've been so busy. Yesterday, I opened up the drawers and cabinets and it's crazy. I have a lot of craft stuff. YIKES!

5. I like to draw. This is what I did today:



Finally, The Misadventures of Mama and Jack requested that I make something printable for an ornament activity! Here's a sneak peek. I'm almost done. :)



Whew...what a long post. I need ice cream now before I put on my new torture device...my dental retainer. :(

Awww...what a cute drawing... You are really good, you know that? But why is she crying?? :(
We have our first little snow this winter... Bbbbrrrrr!! Thanks for sharing your 5 little things! I had fun reading about them! I am too can't resist new little device/machine like the one you have. I just spent so much $$ buying scallop-edged circle punchers...Yikes!

that card is adorable along with ur drawing.
p.s. check out my blog sometime!

Yuzu said...

Eek! So much cuteness in one post, I can hardly stand it! The ornament drawing is way cute...as is the doodle you made.

I'm the same way with my crafts right now. I'm just shoving fabric, yarn and needles into whatever drawers they'll fit in. I even have stacks of fabric on the floor in my bedroom. It's so bad! I really need to organize better.

I enjoyed the link to your sister's blog .... love her cute bunnies! A different style from yours, for sure!

Erika said...

We are the very same age!

A few days ago the Princess Diaries II was on the Disney channel so I watched it to the end. I thought it was pretty good. I guess the Disney channel has good movies on every day now that there's a countdown till Christmas or somethin'. I hope I haven't yet missed "The Sound of Music."

Was your little crying girl just punished? that's what she looks like...that's she's remorseful for her recent wrong-doing.

And the dreaded retainer...I got my braces off at 15 and I still wear a night retainer occasionally. I have a permanent bottom retainer. I am so happy to have straight teeth, though!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I LOVE that card you had framed! And, I had to laugh at your die cut machine "collection". Fortunately, I never bought more than the QuicKutz. But, even it sits on my shelf collection dust. I just can't find a good way to incorporate dies into my work. Oh, well. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

I so envy your artistry! Well, admire is more the right word. Great job!
