May I Introduce...

Yesterday, Julie over at EAB designs encouraged other bloggers to tell a little about themselves, other than our thumbnail profiles. Okay....
  • Instruction manuals - I actually read them.
  • I'm basically shy.
  • Dislike long-term projects (3 months or longer in my opinion).
  • I own nine sets of dishes & seven sets of flatware. 
  • I'm a visual person, so I learn and communicate better via the written word and pictures.
  • I enjoy finding solutions.
  • To truly relax has always been a challenge for me.
  • It used to be hard to say "no," but I'm getting better at it.
  • Fires in the fireplace or bonfire is my idea of heaven
  • I can get "tickled" - as in someone says or does something that makes me laugh - and then find it hard to stop giggling, especially in inappropriate events like wedding ceremonies.
  • One of my biggest thrills is making something that was pitifully ugly, beautiful. 
  • "Useless" crafts don't appeal to me.
  • Cowboys and farmboys make me weak in the knees, that's why I married my honey!
Enough about me. What about you? BTW, I was two years old in the photo above.

Loved reading your facts! I'm with you on the fires! The place we buy our Christmas tree each year always keeps a HUGE outdoor fire burning and that's my favorite thing about the location. I'm also very ticklish...no massages for me! Have a great weekend!

What a cute photo! I can see that it's you, you even have your head tilted the same way! We have a lot in common, I could agree with every one of your statements...except you own nine sets of dishes and I WANT to own nine sets:>) But see? Only storage separates us on that one!

You were an adorable 2 year old!! I just love the b&w photos...something so sweet and innocent about them. Thanks for sharing a little about yourself, it's always fun to learn more about fellow bloggers!!

What a cutie patootie!!! Look how pensive you are in thinking "why am I up here? Please hurry with that photograph, I have things to do..." Soooo cute!!!

Loved reading more about you -- the who you are fits completely with your two year old self -- you can see even then that you were going to be this person!! :)

I relate to the love of dishes - I have four sets even though I have a tiny kitchen!

thanks for visiting my blog and leaving me a comment. I love reading these fact thingies that people write cos I think we can all relate to a few of them - I also can't stop laughing once I start and it's nearly always in inappropriate places (usually work when the Chief Exec is walking through the office!). I also find it hard to relax and I'm definitely with you on the cowboy fixation!!
