Tag....I'm It!

Gayle from This Artist's Journey has tagged me, and I am it! Now it is my turn to answer a few questions that will tell you a little more about me! So here I go, and by the out you might be tagged next!

Eight things I'm looking forward to:

  1. School being out!
  2. Warmer weather and being outside in the garden
  3. Swimming and getting a tan
  4. Fresh peaches from the Farmer's Market
  5. Heaven
  6. Veggies (especially tomatoes) fresh from my garden
  7. Cosmos (my favorite flower) in the flower beds
  8. Learning another new jewelry technique

Eight things I did yesterday

  1. Homeschooled the boys
  2. Dreamed of making several different pairs of earrings, after all there are so many ideas floating around in my head!
  3. Took my boys to AWANA for their end of the year ceremony, and smiled big grins when they got trophies and ribbons for all their hard work this year!

  3. Adopt one of my girls from the Coq Chante, Haiti orphanage and bring her to the USA
  4. Have Solomon's wisdom (and his riches would be good too!)
  5. Get my parents to move closer to us

Eight of My Favorite Blogs:

  • de Cor's Handmades - Lots of great wire wrapped tutorials, and pictures of her everyday life. After reading her blog you feel like you really know her personally, and the things that Cora does with wire are so inventive too!
  • Zaplecione - This jewelry artist is from Poland and her writing isn't in English but Oh! the jewelry she makes! When I grow up, I want to make jewelry like she does!
  • Angela's Heartwork - Angela takes the most awesome photographs, and writes inspiring poetry to go with each one! Her work will touch your heart, and her stories of everyday life will make you grin!
  • Paulette Insall - mixed media artist and mom - The ladies in Paulette's paintings and prints just speak to me! She also does many online workshops, so if you would like to learn mixed media and more check out her blog!
  • Gailavira - Handcrafted Artisan Jewelry - Donna has awesome wire wrapping tutorials (many of which I have), she has inspired me to make lots of new pieces of jewelry!
  • the b-line - have a lovely day - A well written, down to earth blog with so many different "every day" topics that makes it very enjoyable to read! Amy shares recipes, pictures of everyday life and continually promotes many artists and crafters in her blog!
  • Merry's Musings - Another well written and thoughtful blog with a variety of topics! Intermixed with wonderful poems and stories you will find lots of old fashioned prints and pictures. Nora's writing makes me smile!
  • A Year of CrockPotting - Lots of delicious crock pot recipes worth checking out!

    In closing I'd like to say thanks to Gayle for the tag! Answering these questions has been fun and thought provoking! Also, if I could add one more thing to the "wish I could do" list, it would be paint like you! Painting with watercolors was one of those art class "must do's" when I was in school and I didn't appreciate it like I do now! Hopefully Mr. Ryan, my art teacher will forgive me! :)

    I hope you have enjoyed reading the answers to these questions, and hopefully I've given you a little more incite into who I am through this posting and all my other musings in this blog! And be forewarned, you might be tagged next!
