I've been tagged :D

I’ve been trying to make quite a few things at once here, and it’s not really working LOL! I have made a list finally, and am going to do one at a time until they are all complete. At least I think I will do them all :) I can’t share this list as most of them are gifts for friends and family, some of you read this blog… so I’m not telling. It has helped me to focus and get them done. I am excited for the holidays coming up for sure! I’ve been working away on Rob’s NRR still, it’s so bright, I love it! I hope Rob will like the outcome. Sorry, not photos today.

I’ve been tagged… Twice! I am sorry it took me so long to post about it too, better late than never right? I was tagged by Carolyn and Kendra for the You Make me Smile Award. What a wonderful thing to be thought of making others smile :D Well, you all make me smile too, thank you so much! If I was to “tag” everyone who made me smile, it’d really make a huge list, so I won’t :) Just reading your blogs and finding so much inspiration has made me smile :D So thank you to everybody who takes the time to sit down and share what they’ve made.

Also Anne Ida at Quiltoholic tagged me for a meme about crafting (thanks Anne, this is fun!), here are my answers:

The rules are: Answer the following on your blog and then let five other bloggers know that you have tagged them to complete the meme.

1. When did you start to create and make craft?
I can’t say really, I mean, what kid doesn’t like to make stuff? I have always loved to draw and paint. I have drawings from when I was in kindergarten of horses and things like that. As I grew up I continued my love for art. I majored in college in Fine Arts (about two semesters) then I got married, had kids, started working as an office manager and yeah… didn’t finish my art degree. I love it even more now, but have not been able to devote the appropriate time and concentration to it since I’ve had my two kids. This is why I’ve filled my life with cross stitching and quilting. I still can be creative, and make things with my hands. Also, these hobbies allow me to do them with my kids around, oil painting… not so much :)

2. Why did you start creating?
It’s ME, it’s who I am, I love it :D

3. Why do you create?
I have to!

4. What do you create?
Cross stitched pieces, quilts, pillows, curtains, table runners, paintings, drawings, ceramics… I miss those last few, but I will do them again someday! :D

5. Has this changed since you began crafting?
Yes, like I said I was focused on drawing/painting until I had the kiddies, now it’s cross stitching and quilting :D

Ok, so now I have to tag someone for this meme – and it will be: Vonna, Kendra, Marie, Michelle, and Dawn. Have fun!

hehe. I am trying to make quite a few things, too! I can totally relate to your post on LJ about how when you have so much to do, you end up not wanting to do any of it! I've started a private list of goals for things I HAVE to have done before Christmas. Maybe we should share in e-mail and try to motivate each other to finish everything? :)

Hey, thanks for the tag! I didn't read blogs until after I'd posted my entry for Monday, so I'll do this meme in Tuesday's post. :-)

I also loved crafting and creating as a kid ... and I love joining in with my own kids' crafty goodness. :D

Anne Ida said...

Thank you for playing! :o) Great answer to q3 - somehow I think that is the feeling most of us share :o)

Lol* I am similar to you in that I also started quilting and doing more "domestic" crafts when I had my children. Ten years ago, if you'd asked me, I would have thought I'd be a famous artist of some sort by now! Funny how babies change things - for the very best of course!!! :)
