I have been tagged by Julsie!! ok so here goes...

What scrapbook lines/products, etc. do you dislike? honestly... CREATIVE MEMORIES makes me GAG!!
What is the hardest thing you have ever had to scrap? hmmm i made 5 albums for a man who lost his wife.. they had 4 children together and wanted 4 albums for them to remember their mother by... and i made one for him to have too. It was hard because i did not know them, and it was hard to see how happy their life was together, and now she is gone...
What technique do you use more than anything else? umm probably inking, sanding and painting
What is the smallest scrap of paper you save? 2x2 square.. i have a great system for scraps and it allows me to create cards and things in a snap!
Have you ever had any scrapbook related injuries?yeah i got one today actually... using kindergarten scissors to cut ribbon... and they cut my FINGER!! ouch!
Finish this sentence, "If I wasn't a scrapbooker/stamper, I wouldspend my money on..." hmm that is hard... probably books and or sewing stuff
Give us your best storage or organizational idea. i love my ribbon jars and i have all these little baskets of supplies in my desk, i looove it!
.You just won a week long scrapbooking cruise for 5. Who is going withyou? all my girlfriends!
When you received your first publication notification, who did you tell? And if you are not yet pubbed, who will be the first person you share the news with? i called tom and then all my girlfriends!

and now i am gonna tag some friends!!!

a trillion little reasons why...

ok so if you ever wonder what a trillion of something looks like... well just ask me, cuz i know! It is my sweet little daughter's fault... she started it all with a baking session in the kitchen of chef Mia... usomg BABY POWDER...yep a whole jug of it... dumped into her kitchen center, dishes, table and chairs, bed, herself, you name it the room was COVERED in it... but it sure smells nice...even a week after the fact!
So that started it. I had to wash EVERYTHING in her room to get it all out, the bedding, stuffed animals and a smooshy pillow. Harmless i thought, all the labels SAID machine washable... so i washed them and threw them into the dryer...
I get going this morning, and go to empty the dryer and guess what?! the smooshy pillow EXPLODED in the dryer, and now we have literally a TRILLION (yeah i counted) teeny tiny specks of styrofoam about the size of a PIN HEAD spilling out of my dryer and is embeded into the fabric of all that is in the dryer! Do not try to sweep these little things up ... oh NO it creates STATIC, and then they begin to float in the air and stick to every surface they come in contact with... so now i have them all in th floor, in my dryer, in all the clothes, in my hair, up my nose and in my mouth and i am laughing hysterically the whole time! Have you ever vacuumed out your dryer? that is a fun chore! So if you ever wanna see something really funny, put a smooshy pillow in the dryer and watch it explode!
