Stuff To Share...

Thanks to all of you for your funny little clips you shared with me today. Laughter is so good for the soul! Here is a picture of another canvas I did. I just love playing with a mix of paint, paper and funky stuff like tassels. Denise saw some canvases at a boutique with tassels hanging from it and that totally inspired me. The card is one I made for Denise just to say thanks for being there! We vent to each other more than any two people in the universe! I used some Key Lime Shimmerz Paint on the Bazzill Chipboard arrow. I love that stuff!

 

 


Before I went on vacation I was tagged with five questions by the fabulous Leslie Ashe. The Red Sox are off tonight so I'm sitting in my scrap room playing and I figured I would get these answered!

1) What were you doing ten years ago? I was 30 years old, living in Sandy, Utah. I was a stay at home mom with 2 little boys who were 4 and 2 and quite a handful. I hung out all of the time with my dear friend Heidi and her two little girls. I worked out like a maniac and weighed 40 pounds less than I weigh now! I scrapbooked every day. (At least that much hasn't changed!)

2) What are 5 things on your to do list today? Well, today I made it a point to not have a to do list today but I did do some laundry for Joe who is going on a trip Saturday. I listened to some new music on my iPod by Tristan Prettyman and Marie Digby. I blogged twice. I submitted some scrapbook layouts for pub. I sat out in my front yard watching people fly kites in the cul de sac and spotted my neighbors girls for backhandsprings. Looked at scrapbooks with Nick, read Veggie Tales books with Nate while he sat on the potty, listened to Joe do his Arnold impression. Talked to my Daddy for a while. Made a giant homemade chicken pot pie for dinner. None of these things were planned, just random stuff all day. :0)

3) What snacks do you enjoy? I am a major foodie so I'd have to say just about everything but my faves are homemade salsa and guac, trail mix, milk chocolate, fruit of every kind and ice cream (pistachio!).

4) What would you do if you were a millionaire? Fill my gas tank.

5) What places have you lived? I grew up in Stoughton, MA then moved to Irvine, CA on a whim when I turned 20. Kirk and I were married and bought our first little house in Huntington Beach, CA. He then got a job transfer to Illinois and we settled in Naperville. We lived there 2 years and he got transferred to SLC and we bought a house in Sandy, UT. The company then moved to AZ (after 2 years!) and we lived in Gilbert for 5 years. The company then moved here to Idaho where we have lived for 3 years. About a year ago, Kirk quit his job because it was moving to Minneapolis and he is still looking for a job that will keep us here. Here is home. Our own "Private Idaho". We hope to stay! I've been fortunate enough to meet amazing friends along the way who I try my best to always keep in touch with!

Now I will tag...
Kelly G, Michelle R, Marci K, Jann S, and Marie B!

Beautiful work, as always. Whats the consistency of the Shimmerz paints, is it thin like water colors or thicker like the acrylic paint?

LoRi said...

Marci, it's very thin, like a glaze or watercolor.
