I've Been Tagged

My good friend Rebecca, owner of has tagged me! Here is how it works:

Each player starts with 7 random facts/habits about themselves.

People who are tagged need to write on their own blog about their seven things, as well as these rules. At the end of your blog, you need to choose 7 people to get tagged and list their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them that they have been tagged and to read your blog!

I have LOTS of quirks but will be brief, haha!

My ceiling fan runs in my room 24/7, all year long.
I make "popcorn balls" with popcorn, a long story but I'm surprised Chad still agreed to marry me ;)
I crack my knuckles.
I still sleep with a nightlight on.
I am scared to sleep alone in the house at night.
I don't like generic brands of pretty much anything.
I own an absurd amount of storage containers (and yes, I label everything!)
I have never flown.
I sing in the shower and while driving.
I enjoy watching reality t.v.

Now I'm tagging:

1. Susan Opel
2. Beth Opel
2. Sue Fields
3. Carrie Postma
4. Rachel (happay)
5. Andrea Deer
6. Michelle St. Clair
7. Carolyn

Have you ever done a kit swap at an on-line site? Well not like this one! I host the kit swap at Create My Keepsake and these ladies continue to WOW me each month!!!

I'm a Cover Girl!

I am so excited to announce that I received an e-mail last night from the editor of PaperCrafts magazine letting me know that my card "Love & Bloom" will be on the cover of their Card Creations 5 Idea Book!!! Thanks Brandy!

On other notes, Taylor and Hanna started t-ball and lobb ball this week. After that nice hard rain, Chloe had a fun time romping in the mud with her brand new little pink sketchers. I should have figured! Hanna had a lot of fun and is looking forward to playing. It will be a busy summer at the ball diamond with Taylor, Hanna, and me playing each week.

Chad's job is going well. He has been working a lot of hours and is still training. This week he has been in Defiance all week. So he gets different shifts each week, and different city locations. It has been such a nice change from construction, and we are this much closer to finally having insurance again...YAY!

I have had the pleasure of working with Hambly Studio product this month at Create My Keepsake. I do have to say that I think I am now addicted!! I NEED more Hambly LOL! I would love to share some of my work with you...

And I did a fun game with Google. You take your name like this "Tina needs" and google it. Write down the first 15 things you "need" LOL. Here is mine:

Tina Needs...
1. your help to build it (OK)
2. to win this (really?)
3. love (I do need this :)
4. to move on (from what exactly?)
5. a home desperately! (what's wrong with mine? LOL)
6. your HELP (I need help a lot :D)
7. a break (oh yes, I can vouch for that)
8. to be kept as an indoor cat (ouch)
9. to get over herself (well, I never realized!)
10. some funds so she can buy the rifle she wants (HA, I am such a hunter ya know)
11. a weave (do you think?!)
12. to shave a bit (hey, how'd they know that???)
13. to get a laugh eery 10 minutes or she gets nervous (what????)
14. to make a choice (everyday!)
15. to go away and get a life (how rude!)

OK, now go play and post here so I can read all about YOU!!!
