I just sold my first piece of altered art.
It was an altered cigar box that I made into a dream catcher. One of my former coworkers wanted something unusual for her mother in law’s 50th birthday. I was so happy and The Hubbs was glad as well. While I have no intentions of retiring just now, I do feel a sense of satisfaction at having revealed my passion to some people who look sideways at me when I am collecting up “stuff” to use, lol!
I am home alone, for the most part. One of the Twem stayed home under the guise of studying for a test on Monday but he knew the rules of engagement this weekend…Mamma is arting and not cooking so every man for himself. I woke up at 05:30, started with a cup of coffee, made bacon and egg on toast and here I sit…
Off to visit some blogroll!
oh, I almost forgot, Sherry tagged me earlier in the week and I have to list these rules
- Link to the person who tagged you
- Mention the rules
- Reveal six quirky yet boring, mundane, banal and pedestrian facts about yourself
- Tag six other bloggers by linking to them
- Go to each of their blogs and leave a message letting them know they’ve been tagged!
- HERE ARE THE 6 things you wanted to know about me…you just did not know you wanted too!
1- I cannot sleep with the tv or lights on. It drives me insane.
2- I am so unorganized, that I have purchased a book twice because I could not find or know I had it the first time.
3- I don’t like having company over. With 4 kids, a husband a dog and a cat, I pray for alone time and am never alone.
4- I have a boat load of stuff that I brought from America that only takes up space but I cannot unload it here.. Longaberger baskets, Lladro porcelain…stuff I “thought” I needed in my life in another time and place has no value to me anymore.
5- I do most of my shopping on Ebay and or when I travel to the States. I don’t like euro fashion taste or quality. Levi’s and tshirts are my preferred style at all times.
6-I need to see Oprah in the flesh. I would love to see her show in person and a friend from Sweden just moved back to the US and lives in Chicago…That is my dream.
Now I have to tag some other non suspecting people…hmnnn
