Papertrey August Blog Hop

I used my sewing machine!

Here is another card with the MME Lost&Found paper that I am in love with. This card is for my mom as she helped me set up my sewing machine a few weeks ago. I bought the machine the day after Thanksgiving and it sat in the box until then. I have never used a sewing machine before. After getting it set up I was too intimidated to use it. I finally said to myself JUST DO IT!. So I did and this is the result. Not perfect but I like the added detail so I will keep practicing until I get better at it.
I will NOT be sewing anything other paper anytime soon, if ever!   :)

5 Question Friday

1. Do you close the bathroom door when you are home alone?
Nope, but  I do say excuse me when I am alone...
2. You have to walk around with a word on your forehead. That word describes you. One word. What is it?
Unpretending - meaning free from any intent to deceive or impress others.  I live my life how I want and not how others think I should.
3. What store do you refuse to shop at and why?
I don't have a store right now but I will not buy GE products.  They have parts that are made in Iran and they also pay no taxes in the US, they keep their profit offshore (Europe) to keep from having to pay US taxes.
4. If you participated in arranged marriages for your child(ren), who would you choose for your child(ren)?
I haven't met anyone yet that I would choose.
5. If you could pick how and when you would die, would you?
I would pick how but not when.  I would like to die peacefully in my sleep.  If I knew when I would feel rushed to try and get the good things in and I think everyday has a good thing in it that I can enjoy and I learn from and would make big things more appreciated.

Hoo are you?

I have seen this on Lindsay's blog a few times and thought it would be fun to try, so here we go.


1. What is your favorite craft or type of craft and if you are a crafter how did you get into it?
My favorite craft right now is paper crafting. I love all crafts! My mom was into ceramics and tri-chem. I remember taking a tri-chem class with her, I couldn't have been more than six, in the back of ERNST hardware store. I have been crafting something or other ever since.

2. What shows have you been watching this summer?
I have been watching Real Housewives of NY and New Jersey. There is too much fighting so I think I am done with those shows. I have also been watching Weeds and Entourage. They are both great entertainment.

3. Who does the yard work at your house?
Husband! I'm no dummy and I HATE bugs!

4. Are you working on any projects inside the home or outside this week?
Not yet but I am hoping to start this soon!

5. Do you have to worry about getting ready for back to school?
Not this fall. My son is almost finished with his AA and is looking for a university for next fall. (While I save money!)
