New Things

Don'tcha love 'em? So here's the deal: I changed my template so pictures of the stuff I make wouldn't get lost in the busyness, kwim? The other one started to look 'dirty' to me so I cleaned it up. Took me a few weeks to decide which one -What do you think? Now I'm just waiting for my site designer to come back from vacation to get my custom banner. Or maybe I'll just buy a new one? Ah, I kinda want it to match my pretty business cards so I guess I'd better wait.

Also, I've decided to feature etsy artists on here. OMGosh, if you haven't perused www.ETSY.com, you don't know what you are missing! That place is INCREDIBLE! So many talented artists; from soapmakers to clothing designers to painters to jewelry makers to a guy who writes messages on toast using pasta and takes a picture and sells the pic! LOL I am overwhelmed by the talent on there.

It's easy to get lost in the crowd, though, because there are so many sellers. So, I'm gonna do my part to help by featuring (completely at random at first) artists whose work I love. That way, you can love them too ;) I'm going to my first Etsy Street Team meeting here today to meet local etsy artists - I'm so excited!

So, be on the look out for my favorite etsy artists coming soon.

PS Did I tell you I CHOPPED my hair off - again. Ah, went twice to have it fixed but I'm still not happy. I miss my Dominican girls!!!! Only THEY know how to do my hair :( I wish I could just JUMP to NY, get it done and get back! *sigh* Oh well, it's only hair...

PPS 1 more week till I tell you my secret....shhhh........

Tagged AGAIN!

Ok Joyce - here it is:

1. Each player answers the questions about themselves.
2. At the end of the post, the player then tags 3 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

10 Years Ago: I was slim and blonde and carefree! Ah, to be young again!

Things on my to-do list today: Are you kidding?? Clean the sty that I call a bedroom; go to BJs for non perishables; complete layout for Crop Challenge this weekend!!; Find the darn ribbon I need to finish these tags to list of etsy; laundry, etc etc etc (accomplished 1 thing - BJs)

What I would do if I were suddenly made a billionaire: Pay off the house and debt; pay my sisters & BIL's debt; take care of my MIL&FIL and my mom and dad for life; TRAVEL!!

3 of my bad habits: Don't keep in touch with any friends or my mom or anyone (see it's not just you, yeah you, so don't take it personal); started biting my nails again! What's up with that?? and hmm....I'm very critical of myself

3places I have lived: NY, OH, NC

5 jobs that I have had: Travel Agent, Sales Associate, Customer Service Rep, HOMEMAKER (the hardest one I've had yet!)

5 Things people don't know about me: My eyebrows are tatooed (but they're fading so I need to get them redone when I become a billionaire - see above); I love to cook and bake but I won't do it without a recipe; sometimes I use the faucet water to make coffee even though I know dh hates that; I used to be a vegetarian and meat totally grosses me out, although I do eat it sometimes; I can't eat the meat I cook cuz I've already seen it raw.

Ok, so now I have to tag 3 people. How about.....Krista, Tereza & Jane (peyton).
