My 5th award

I'm so ashamed! My friend Kristine gave me this award exactly one month ago today, and I've been so crazy with filling that huge sundae kit order, then busting out Christmas cards (made 116 of them in 4 days!), and my intermittent tummy health issues that I totally spaced passing it on to others. MIBAD!!

I don't have a project finished to share just yet (later tonight for sure) so for now, I'll do this.
I was supposed to share 7 things about me that were Christmas related, but that hardly seems appropriate now, so I think I'll just share 7 things in general about me:

1. By nature I'm a very organized person, but this last year I've been slipping with the help of DH & kiddos and home repair problems. I'm going to get that back. I NEED to get that back for my sanity's sake!! *LOL*
2. I have a deep appreciation for all forms of art, thanks to my 7th grade art teacher, Mrs. Joanne Sheridan. She introduced me to using soft pastels, oil pastels, watercolors, acrylics, charcoal. She gave me most of the basics that I use to this day when I pick up a pencil or brush. I loved her so much!
3. I'm a music nut - I'll listen to ANYTHING - rock, jazz, blues, bluegrass, country, reggae, classical, gospel, soul, pop, swing, big band, you name it.
4. Hubby and kids think I should be providing the family's living by singing - they think I'm good, I don't. Simple as that. DH says my mother telling me as a teenager to "Quit killing the cat!" didn't help me much in this area (we didn't HAVE a cat...).
5. I RARELY pay full price for anything, especially when it's related to my crafting. If I can't get it on a deep discount, clearance, or use oodles of coupons, it stays on the shelf at the store & I find something else to fit my needs.
6. In High School I wanted to write romance novels. My 10th grade English teacher was my biggest cheerleader at the time. One of my Aunts was a member of NORA (Northeastern Oklahoma wRiters Association) & was getting me in, in spite of my age (you were supposed to be 18 to join). I even had a book started - nearly 5 chapters - let a girl read the book & never saw it again. Never tried again after that, either.
7. I don't make goals. Goals are rarely achieved. I make commitments - if you're committed to something, you're in it till the very end. It's easier to stay focused that way, I think.

Now to pass this on:
1. Sharron
2. Andrea
3. Charlene
4. Dixie
5. Kathe
6. Jenn

'K! Now that's off the ole noggin, I can focus on getting my roast in the slow cooker for supper tonight & finish this project. Just a small hint - it's a tin...

Thanks for stopping by & have a great rest of your day!!
