wow… lain… thanks!

So, after being sick and behind in the blogging world, I am scrolling around and see that my dear friend Lain has tagged be as a Kreative Blogger…  I am now going to follow the rules of the deal-y-o and share away!

1.  Thank the person who nominated you…  Thanks Lain – you inspire me regularly so this is seriously somewhat surreal that you picked me…  wow.

2. Copy the logo and post it.  Done!

3.  List 7 things people might find interesting about you.  Really?  I am not sure I can find 7 interesting facts, but here 7 random facts…

  • I want to learn to crotchet – bought yarn, needles, and have a family history of it (my grandma), but have yet to make anything at all yet…  I will.  Soon.  I hope.
  • I love to cook – I am a Food Networkjunkie and I am willing to try a lot of recipes if they sound good.  To go along with this, I read cookbooks like novels and flag everything I want to make.  Nigella, Rachael, Guy, and Alton are people my kids think are relatives.

  • Someday I will go to Paris where I will sit under the Eiffel Tower, eat crunchy, crusty bread, eat fresh amazing cheese, and drink wine all on a picnic blanket,  feeling so blessed and lucky to be there, with no cares in the world, and enjoying every second and every bite. (run-on sentence, but so true)
  • I am taking a class to learn how to curl – as in the current Olympic sport of curling.  I have always found it facsinating and have always wanted to learn.  I just found out that Madison houses one-of, if not THE, largest club curling facilities in the country…  I think it is time to give it a try!

  • I can watch Ferris Bueller’s Day Off from start to finish and know 98% of the lines in any given scene. (See random, not interesting…) I also believe that remaking this movie would be a travesty against nature.  Just sayin’…

  • I have never been anywhere exciting…  this is the list of places I have NEVER been… or at least some of it:
  1. New York
  2. Anywhere requiring a flight over an ocean – including, but not limited to – Europe, Hawaii, Australia, China, etc… etc…
  3. Seattle
  4. San Fransisco (well – I connected at the airport once, but that was it…  nice airport, but would like to see more…)
  5. anyway… you get the idea….
  • I start taking classes TOMORROW to become a Master Gardener – help us all!!!  I can barely grow tomatoes, so this will be truly interesting…

4.  Nominate 7 creative bloggers – I do not expect some of these people to even see this, let alone play along, but they are all women who truly motivate and inspire me to be a crafter and I *heart* them all!

  • Kathy Cano-Murillo – she just rocks it like nobody else and is about as nice as any person physically can be.
  • Margot Potter – because she makes me want to take more beading classes and makes me smile.
  • Margie Romney-Aslett– because she is an amazing crafter and even more amazing person.  She makes me a better person every time I am with her.
  • Kelly Purkey – I dream of traveling and crafting and eating the way she does, and looking that good while doing it all!
  • Lisa Pace – I look at glitter in a whole new light and way thanks to her and her sparkling personality!
  • Melody Ross – her blog is visually and spiritually stunning
  • Angie Lucas– She is seriously witty, talented, and one ella of a good gal…

Okay…  now back to your regularly scheduled day!

    Can’t wait to hear more about curling….very different and very interesting!

  2. Nice to hear you are feeling better ! We, also, have a local curling club that my hubby wants to check out!…and if we both ever have the time, I would love to spend a day in NYC with you ! It is amazing, and a new adventure every time I go !! It’s only 3 hours south of me….and after that day, you can show me Chicago…Deal ?? Huggs xo

  3. Oh Steph, you will have to let us know about the curling class! My whole family has gotten into the curling while watching the olympics! We find it fascinating and would love to learn more. I guess I should Google it and find out the real rules but it’s been fun trying to figure it out.

    Glad you are feeling better !
