Tagged : )

I've been tagged : ) ! Actually I've been tagged several times over the past month and I have to apologize because I got a little hasty in trying to clean up my email inbox last week and lost a couple of my tags, which makes me a little if you tagged me and I don't mention you...please accept my humble apology (very sorry I am... as Yoda would say)! I've been tagged by these super nice & VERY talented ladies to tell you 7 Random things about myself:

Deena from a Necessary Creativity

Angel from Angelosity

Marie from Stamp Lounge

Just click on their names to check out their AWESOME blogs!! Thanks girls...and now, onto those 7 random things. Hmmmm.....

1. I play several musical instruments...right now, primarily the Piano. But in the past I've played the bass Guitar, accoustic and electric Guitars, the Baritone, the Balilika, the Recorder (in the 4th grade, along with the rest of the class...hey, that still counts) and the violin.

2. I like to run/jog but I'm not very good at it. I don't take enough time to train. I ran a 10K (very slowly) about 5 years ago and hope to do it again and maybe even train for a marathon one day! I made it my goal during the 10K to jog the entire time...which I did (very slowly), although I had fast walkers passing me on the uphills (that makes me giggle now, but didn't at the time).

3. I'm my own worst critic and sometimes I need to totally get over myself and the fact that I'm not {gasp!} perfect! God's working on that part of me...actually He's working on a lot of other parts too : )

4. I have a Tabby cat named Gabby, which is short for Gabriella, but it turns out she's not very angelic, infact she's rather stubborn & demanding, plus she's been known to chew on my cards and stamping I just call her Gabby : )

5. I was born in the same town I currently live in. My parents, myself and my children all graduation from the same High School! Go Bulldogs !!!

6. I drink WAY too much coffee and I love it WAY too much to ever give it up!! It's no good trying to have a conversation with me before my first cup. You'd have a better chance of having an intelligent conversation with the toaster.

7. I don't really like talking about myself...I can think of many more interesting topics. But this does make I'm done...yay : )!!!!!

Now I get to do some tagging...but I'll be back to do that in a day or two. I need to be up early tomorrow and will be heading to Eugene (2 hours away) to attend a Copic Certification Class! Should be fun !!!

This little box is a variation of the Valentine box that I made back in January. I'll be sharing that tutorial with you soon... I'd do it tonight, but if I dont' get to bed soon, no amount of coffee is going to help me in the morning ; ) ... know what I mean?

Supplies for the Elzybells Dream box ~ Stamps: Elzybells Fairygirl Paper: Orchic Opulence, Apricot Appeal, Whisper White Ink: Burnt Umber Palette, Copic Markers Accessories: Small & Large Oval Punches, 3/16" corner rounder, Eastern Elegance Rub-ons, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Sakura Clear Stardust pens, Marvy Giga Scallop Square (purple)

Hope you find LOTS of reasons to SMILE : ) today !!

I love this project and your tutorials! I've already had a lot of success trying out the ideas!

Hey, I also play Violin. I picked it up after a near 10 year absence and loved it so much my DH bought me a brand new one. "She" has such a beautiful voice. I love playing Hymns the most.

Great work! I so stalk your blog!
