20 Questions

The uber-talented Nancy always has gorgeous layouts, projects and other fun things on her blog.  A couple of days ago, she revisited a 20 Questions post that she originally posted a year ago.  That's another thing I like about Nancy... she revisits things to see how things have changed... how she has grown.

I thought this would be a good Sunday post to do... so here goes - 20 Questions...(or really, 20 things... some are questions, some aren't)...

1. Show us the inside of something cute.

This is the inside of a friendship book a friend of mine gave me a couple of years ago…

I think it’s cute.

2. What’s the last home cooking you had?

If you don't count the eggs I cooked this morning, the Hubs made his yummy homemade chicken fried rice for The Girl's birthday yesterday.

3. What do you miss?

Living near a lake!

4. What makes you laugh often?

Oh, my... this was a bigger toughie than it should have been. I love to laugh but I can't think of one thing that makes me laugh often.  I guess I need to change that.  If I had to say anything, it would be a friend of mine who has such a sarcastic sense of humor - I see her about twice a week and every time I laugh.  So, Laura... Laura makes me laugh right now.

5. What’s your favorite word?

At the moment it's shenanigans.  It's a private joke between The Hubs and me.  If he knew I put that out here, he'd be yelling, "Hey!  That's MY word!"  Heh.  Him and his shenanigans!

6. What are you trying to quit?

I am working very hard to quit an overall unhealthy lifestyle.  It's one of the toughest undertakings I have ever attempted.  I'm bad at it... but I'm hoping the fact that I keep trying will win out in the end, despite my current lack of "ability" to be healthy...

7. What’s your favorite commercial right now?

Oh good golly... I don't pay attention to commercials much... that's when I'm writing blog posts and responding to emails! 

8. Whose style do you dig?

Anyone who can put together an outfit and accessories and make it "theirs".  I'm just such a t-shirt and jeans kinda girl... I don't have a style, so I dig anyone who does.

9. Link to a great blog you’ve discovered lately

I don't really look around at blogs to find new ones, but if you look over to the right of of this blog, you can see some of the ones I frequently visit and read... maybe you'll discover a new blog from me!

10. What’s the last craft you made?

For a class I taught to fourteen 10-year olds at the store, I made an accordian mini-book out of a plain ol' manilla file folder.  I haven't been very crafty lately.

11. A photo of the last happy mail you got.

Okay, this made me very happy when I got it in the mail a couple of days ago.  But if I share it with you, you have to promise to keep it a secret... it's a top-top-secret... because it is SFTIO's next month's kit.  No one, but the SFTIO team has seen it yet.  But here...  I'll give you a sneak peek... but you have to keep it a SECRET!  Promise?  Okay... here you go....

Sorry... one of you looked like you crossed your fingers when you were making that promise.  I guess I just don't trust you as much as I'd like... but if you want to see it, visit the site in a couple of weeks! 

It'll make you happy too!

12. Something you’ve gotten lately?

I just got the Tim Holtz paper rosette die, y'know cuz he's my man and all...

And because I don't own a Sizzix or his new Vagabond, I had to get extended cutting plates for my Cuttlebug:

I tell ya... best purchase I've made in a LONG time!  So much fun!

13. What are you looking forward to?

The day when my house will clean itself.  Realistically?  I'm starting to look forward to Christmas, actually.  I'm not really sure why, but I am.  It'll fly here, I'm certain.

14. Post a recent snapshot of yourself.

Taken yesterday at glo-golf:

I admit, not my best side.  LOL!

15. Recent favorite movie?

The Proposal with Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock.  I can watch it over and over and over!  It makes me laugh!  I should have put this up there in question #4.

16. Something you’re working on right now?

Me, myself and I.  I am my biggest project at the moment.  It's all I have time for outside of my jobs.

17. If a movie were made about you, who would play you?

Another toughie... how do I judge this?  By someone I love or by someone who I think is short and looks sort-of like me?  Hmmmm.... I'd say Janeane Garofolo or Ellen Page or Reese Witherspoon.

18. What gives you goosebumps?

Anything having to do with a father/daughter... father/daughter dances at a wedding... Hallmark commercials between a father and a daughter...  things like that.  Dunno why.

19. Share a new obsession.

Taking photos.  It's technically not a "new" obsession, but having a new Nikon D5000 with two lenses gives me lots of opportunity to play.  My pets being the most willing subjects and as the sky pulls my eyes to it ever so often... here are a few shots in my back yard this past weekend of my dogs and the sky.


My puppy in motion!  Notice his fuzz is back.

He still won't ever look at the camera, even with my ultra zoom lens on!

She wanted to join the boys outside ...
she's begging me through the door.  Poor baby!

20. What’s the meaning of your life?

To discover Me... and find the strength and bravery to Be Me. 
How about you?  Let's hear your answers - link me back to your blog if you do this... I'd love to read 'em!


  1. Yay! So happy you did this! That poor kitty melts my heart... our kitty begs us too, but the answer is always no!

    Love the lens flare on that sky photo!

  2. These are really interesting questions - ones to make you think!

  3. Great post Kai! I'm so glad for you that YOU are currently your #1 project! Go YOU! [However, I do miss hearing from you!]


I love hearing what you have to say. Thank you for sharing yourself with me!
