11 Things About Me.... Tag

I was tagged by my friend, the talented Nicole of CanadianNickelScrap'n.
The purpose is to learn more about our blogging friends.
I think you pretty much know all there is to me but here it goes :)

                                            There are 5 Rules:

1. Post these rules.
2. Post a photo of yourself and 11 random things.
3. Answer the questions set for you in the original post.
4. Create 11 new questions and tag people to answer them.
5. Go to their blog/twitter and tell them you’ve tagged them.
Here are the 11 Random Things about me.

1. I have been with my Hubby for over 28 yrs, since I was 16 yrs old. We dated for 4yrs before we got married...I wanted to make sure he was the one.....He is :)
2. We have 3 stunning daughters who are my treasures. I am so proud of them.
3. I love road trips. Even though I sleep through most of it ;)
4. I love to spend time at our cottage. That is where this photo was taken.
5. I enjoy reading, it is another passion of mine. As a child/teen, books would take me places I could escape to. I always have a book on the go. Right now it is "Mockingjay".
6. I create every day, my mind never stops.
7. I enjoy organizing and re-organizing.
8. I eat Oatmeal Crisp, apple nut flavour and I add Cranberries to it everyday for breakfast for the last year or two. Before that it was oatmeal with my hand picked blueberries.
9. Me and my family enjoy watching Zombie movies.
10. I want to re- do my kitchen. I mean gut the thing.
11. I could never have imagined my life would ever be this amazing. I don't think it could get any better.

That was harder then I thought, lol.
Here are Nicole's questions to me 

  1. ANY TRAVEL PLANS THIS YEAR?   Not any major ones, just our weekend trips to Minneapolis. the best trips we have been on as a family were to BC and Montana.
  2. WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE BOOK YOU'VE READ? There are too many to name. One that stands out is "The true story of Hansel and Gretel" also "Domain" I read Domain when I lived on my own in a basement apartment, freaked me out, lol
  3. WHAT DO YOU LOVE TO EAT? I am not a big eater, but I am a lover of sweets :)  
  4. COFFEE OR TEA...WINE OR BEER?  None of the above. I have never enjoyed coffee or tea. I also don't like the taste of alcohol. But I do love me some Coca-Cola :)
  5. WHERE IN THE WORLD WOULD YOU LIKE TO VISIT AND WHY? I had a dream once that I was in Scotland. So I would love to visit there, plus I would also love to visit England. My grandmother was born in England and my dad in Scotland. 
  6. YOUR FAVORITE BLOG TO VISIT? Oh I can't just pick one. There are so many talented women that I visit on a daily bases.
  7. WHICH DO YOU PREFER, SNOWY MOUNTAINS OR SAND BEACHES? As much as I love the view of snowy mountains, I don't like the cold. Plus we have our own beach at our cottage. So I have to go with the sandy beach :)
  8. WHAT CRAFTY THING DO YOU WANT TO LEARN THIS YEAR? There is so much to learn and I love to absorb everything creative. But I would love to learn how to master my Copic colouring and learn how to shade better.
  9. WHO INFLUENCES YOU AND WHY? I have put a lot of thought into this question. Honestly I can't come up with anyone from my youth. I would have to say though that I get so much inspiration from the creative people here on blogs and YouTube.
  10. MORNING PERSON OR NIGHT OWL? I have always been a night owl.
  11. WHICH ERA SHOULD YOU HAVE BEEN BORN IN? 1800's, like on Little House on the Prairie. I find it so interesting that they had to work twice as hard to get things done, and could still accomplish more then we do in a day, lol.
     Now for my questions to you:
    1 What is your favourite craft to do?
    2. Where were you born?
    3. What is your favourite crafting tool?
    4. What is your least favourite household chore?
    5. Sweet or Sour treats?
    6. What is your favourite movie?
    7. What is your easiest meal to put together?
    8. What is your best project you have ever if possible :)
    9. What is your guilty pleasure?
    10 When is your best time to create?
    11. What is your favourite season.
    Here is who I would enjoy learning more about

    Wow that was a long one wasn't it :)
    Hope your Sunday was a creative one :)
    Tracy :) 


  1. Love all the info about you! Great photo also :0) I would be scared though...not a big fan of the water :0) Thanks for tagging me, this is going to take some thought to put together :0) Hugs!

  2. I enjoyed reading all your info. Will try to get a post together on me later this week. Like the photo of you in the kayak.

  3. Great info, you look cool in the photo. I have never been a sport kind of person, especially around water.

  4. I love this post! That us such an awesome picture of you :) I'm totally going to play along, just might take me a few days to a) come up with some questions and b) find s picture of just me! Ha!

  5. Great photo! You look so determined. thanks for sharing more about you. I don't drink coffee or tea either.

  6. Thanks for your encouraging words today. What I am trying to achieve is not so much about my blog. I want to win a challenge - specifically a Simon Says Stamp Challenge, and I keep trying and won't give up til I win one. While, yes, it would be nice to have lots of follower and comments, that's exactly what I'm saying - whether I have that or not, I will NOT give up. I will keep seeking after my goal. Thanks again for being an encouragement.

  7. I cannot believe I just did the whole thing. Me the procrastinator. Yes, yes I did the whole post and now I'm exhausted. Going to bed! Nighty Night!

  8. Hi Tracy!
    I'll play along too! This will be fun! Great pic by the way!

  9. Awesome! Thanks for sharing. What do you think of Mockingjay??

  10. Great to find out little things about you! Thanks for sharing.

  11. LOVE that photo of you!! The one thing I found interesting in your list is that you feel as though you should have been born in the 1800's. I have always felt that way too & yes, Little House on the Prairie always came to mind for me.

  12. That was great to read. Thanks for sharing...I'm reading Divergent and the Uglies series right now;) Oh and I love your picture!

  13. I love this! It was so fun to read, I love reading and reorganizing too...I'm always reorganizing my desk, and the kitchen, and the closet!

    My post is scheduled to go up tomorrow...I want to add pictures that I need off the other computer! Thank you so much for tagging me!

  14. Lovely reading:)Thanks for sharing:):)Hugs Merethe
