Having a blog goes along with being tagged, right? Fun stuff... and who knows, maybe it will turn into journaling. I think I might be the last one doing this particular tag, but if you're reading this, have a blog, and haven't done this one, consider yourself tagged... :D

What were you doing ten years ago?

Ten years ago, I was a newlywed without a care in the world... lol. Chris and I had been married for a grand total of three weeks. I had finished my first year of university and was working part time at Price Chopper. Little did I know what lay in store for me...

Five snacks you enjoy:

chocolate (no discrimination here)
ice cream

Five songs you know all the lyrics to:

How sad is it that they are probably all kids songs... I'm not going to bother listing them.

Things you would do if you were a millionaire:

- pay off all bills/mortgages/loans
- buy something fun and useless
- give money to parents/brothers/sisters
- go on a long trip to beautiful places

Five bad habits:

- my mind gets ahead of my mouth during conversations and I make jumps that seem logical to me, but are frustrating and annoying to anyone trying to follow what I'm saying
- mindless eating
- procrastination
- other 2 bad habits would probably fall under the procrastination heading...

Five things you like to do:

- read
- swim... well, not so much swim as laze around in a pool
- spend time with friends
- scrapbook
- visit family

Things you will never wear again:

- The prom/bridesmaids dresses that "would be great for other events".
- legwarmers
- short skirts
- scrunchies (stole that one from Shannon, but very true)
- shirts tied with a knot

Things I love to wear:

- yoga pants
- capris
- crocs

Sketch #2

Another oldie... how about a 2-page sketch this week? I don't do a lot of two-page layouts, but sometimes the amount of pictures I have really need a two page spread. Here's my layout:

Product list: American Crafts rub-on letters, Cosmo Cricket Papers, rub-on and die-cuts, Fontwerks Erosion mini-mounted stamps, Brilliance ink, Colorbox chalk ink. Don't forget to link me up if you do (or have done) a layout with this sketch...

First sketch for the blog

So I thought it would be nice to compile my sketches and layouts in one place, and maybe give out a RAK every once in a while too. This is an oldie sketch, but maybe it's new to you, or you didn't get to it the first time around... hopefully it inspires you somehow. I'd love to see what you do, so link me up if you create something based on my sketch!

and my layout...

Product list: Basic Grey, Cherry Arte, Scenic Route papers; BG letter stickers and tags; Hero Arts stitched star stamp; Brilliance ink

Blogging -- Day 1

Chris (dh) told me I would start a blog someday, but I always insisted I wouldn't. I guess he was right...

I've never felt like I had anything to say really (my life is boring), but I have a plan: I'm going to post a sketch (and hopefully matching layout) a week, share some of the DT stuff I'm working on, and throw a little of my boring life in there too for good measure. So welcome, I hope you enjoy!
