A little something different for today.
Erika from Nico Designs tagged me and now I have to answer 4 questions.
1. If you were given $1,000 how would you spend it?
So many things I could say here. I could be ultra generous and say that I would send it to some worthwhile charity. I could be practical and say I would spend it on some home improvement projects that are patiently waiting to be done. But, if this was a gift and it was to be spent on something frivolous I would spend it in the craft store buying paper and stamps and inks and punches and whatever else I could get my greedy little hands on :)
2. If you could be in someone else's shoes for the day who would it be and why?
Now this is a tough one and I really can't think of anyone. It's easy to say "boy I wish I was so and so, they have it made" The truth is though that who knows what it really feels like to be that person. They may be suffering on the inside and are just really good at putting on a happy face. I think I would just prefer to trudge along in my own shoes as dusty and worn as they may be.
3. Books or magazines?
Magazines for sure. I've always loved to flip through them, scanning quickly the first time, usually starting at the back and working my way to the front. I don't know why I've always done that. Then I start over and stop and read an article that caught my eye. I study the pictures or the ads to see what I might find that will spark some crafty idea.
4. What skill/craft would you like to learn?
I've always wished that I could paint. I used to watch a show on tv where an artist would take you through step by step how to paint different things. I sat mesmerized at how she worked magic with the paintbrush. I tried to imitate her movements and could never get it right. Yes I would love to learn how to paint.
And now I guess I'm supposed to come up with 4 questions and 4 people that I want to tag.
The victims are
Sheri at A girl and her camera
Betty at Bossy Betty
Tammy at Crazy mom with 4 boys
Marie at Spun by me
Grace at Hugz before you go
Oops, that appears to be 5 but I never was good at following rules.
and the questions are
1 what is your fondest childhood memory
2. if you could live anywhere in the world where would it be
3. what is the one thing you don't ever seem to have enough time to do
4. how would you describe a sunset to someone who has never been able to see one.
Now for those of you who are here for the Duke fix and haven't been tagged I give you this
c) annoyed (as in "will you stop taking my picture already")
d) sad that he lost his shaggyness
