I've Been Tagged!

Janette tagged me, so here goes...

Ten years ago...
I was living at home and going to school. I also started dating Jason. I had a cute little white Mitsubishi Eclipse. I was getting ready to go to St. Thomas with the family.

Snacks I enjoy...
Right now it's Quaker Rice Cakes, granola bars and light popcorn. Yeah, I know, sounds delish doesn't it? (I'm on a diet)

Five things on my list...
Clean the house
Paint the house

If I were a billionaire...
I think I would change very little about my life. Except we would own a house in Maui and one in Manhattan. I would be a guest on Regis and Kelly everyday!

Three bad habits:

Places I've lived...

Jobs I've had...
Cashier at Mac's Hobbies and Crafts
Sewing mattresses at a mattress factory
Painted murals
Front Desk Attendant for Salt Lake County Parks and Rec
Health care Customer Service Rep
Office Manager/AP/AR

Things people don't know about me...

I'm very quiet and shy when I meet new people. I'm VERY careful, i.e. I drive the speed limit, I won't jump out of an airplane, and I'm the only one in my family who doesn't water ski! I'm not a spontaneous person. I like to have things planned out. I like to write "To Do" lists. I love old movies, The Odd couple, It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World, Abbott and Costello, Some Like it Hot, Gentlemen Prefer Blonde's, and Breakfast at Tiffany's. I have been known to put in a DVD and not watch it. Something about just having the movie as background noise comforts me.

I tag Rachel (unless you've done this already)

When life gives you lemons....Hey gimme that!

Here are some of the projects I have been working on the last few weeks. Most of these cards are stamped with sets from Stampin Up's Occasion Mini Catalog. The cupcakes are from a set called Hey There Cupcake from Stampendous. It is a fun and versatile set that is unmounted (great for limited storage space). I used a circle punch to add a little dimension. I really like the layout and design...can't you tell?

This is Boston grabbing the camera. I loved his facial expressions! I can't wait to see him again.

Have a happy weekend!

What a busy couple of weeks. Work has been steady, and it seems there is a lot of family stuff going on. Spending time with the Nelson's was fun (Nate, congrats on finishing fire school!) Boston is getting so big and it was nice to be down in a warm climate. Now if only the weather here will cooperate.

I have been trying to spend a little more time in my craft room and I have been able to create a few things here and there (it always helps when you've purchased some new products!) I am also re-organizing the area a little, (it's amazing what you find when you CLEAN!). My artist challenge isn't available for viewing...yet. Where did February go?

I have been in such a creative mood. I have spent the last week picking out paint colors for my house. I know some of you are saying "It's about time!" I really try to take my time and think about the room as a whole before I apply paint. It's a long process and I know it drives Jason crazy.

Also, don't forget Making Memories is having their Spring Warehouse Sale March 31-April 4 in Centerville. Check their website for times and location. You don't want to miss it!

I hope to post some pictures this weekend.
