This week's questions & my answers: 



What's your favorite fruit?
    Raspberries!

Wendell would like to know if you've ever been horseback riding.
 I have only been a few times but I L.O.V.E.D. every moment of them and want to do more, but life  got in the way...

Do you carry a small purse, a big one, or just a wallet?
 I carry a small to medium purse.  The big ones get to heavy and I can never find anything in them because everything falls to the bottom and I can never find the bottom with all that stuff in there!  :)

If you could travel to one state for a day (all expense paid), where would you go? If you're not in the US, where would you like to travel within your country?
 There are so many I want to visit but the first one that popped into my head was DC.  I have been there before but I didn't get to see all the things I wanted to so I would love to go back.  

What was your first car?
It was 1969 Chevy Nova and it was maroon on the outside and black on the inside.

PTI Day 1 Challenge Card 3

These cards were made based on some of the PTI designers favorite cards over the years.  I made three and they were all made based off of Maile Belles designs.  I really can't pick a favorite designer on the team because they are all extremely talented.  In my true form I waited until the last minute and created these cards in the last two days...  I did have a lot of fun doing it though!

Here are Maile's personal favorites:


Here is my third:

Chats on the farmhouse porch 2/12/13

It's Tuesday and that means its time to pour a cup of tea and have a little chat, won't you join me?

This week's questions & my answers: 

1. Are you doing anything special for Valentine's Day?
No we don't usually do anything special, he will sometimes get me flowers.  It's just another day in paradise for us!

2. When you attend something that isn't totally casual, are you likely to wear dress pants or a dress?
I usually wear pants, only because I don’t have many non formal dresses.  Not that I have many formal dresses either…

3. Do you use a regular toothbrush or one of the battery run kind?
I have a manual toothbrush. 

4. Did you have valentines in school when you were a child?
I did, we would give valentines to all of our classmates and sometimes have a party.

5. If you could learn a new craft tomorrow, what would it be?
Hmm, as a crafty person you would think this was an easy question for me…  I guess it depends on how you define craft.  If it is a skill, I would like to learn woodworking.  This would be very useful for the other hobbies that I have such as decorative painting.  I would like to learn to speak Spanish and Italian.  I would love to learn Yoga!  If you define it as a hobby type craft then I want to learn how to sew.  Is that too many answers for one little question?  Haha
