NOW, on to my next award! Some of my answers may be the same sew bear with me!!! This award was given to me by my dear friend, Susan

I was also tagged by Susan with this:

The criteria for this one is:

1. Post the button
2. Tell 10 things about yourself
3. Tag 5 bloggers

Here are my 10 things about me:

1. I have only been blogging since May of this year and crafting since January of last year. I'm a newbie!

2. I am the oldest of 4 children with a big difference of ages between us. My one brother is 5 years younger, my next brother is 10 years younger and my sister is 12 years younger!

3. I was a Girl Scout Leader and Trainer for 9 years.

4. I have a warped sense of humor. I have been known to break out in song lyrics or lyrics from movies and/or television if the mood strikes me or the conversation!

5. My favorite colors are red and teal just not together. Guess you could say mainly jewel tones.

6. I have been married 3 times. First marriage was a mess but I was blessed with my beautiful daughter, Jen who just became a mother of my beautiful granddaughter, Lily. My husband has 3 children. His son Jerry Jr has a son age 4 named Jerry III, and a daughter age 1 named Ashley. His oldest daughter Barbara who we affectionately call Cissy has a daughter by the name of Sasha who just turned 6 and loves to craft with Grammie Lynne. His younger daughter, Jean, has 2 adorable boys by the name of Zack who is 6 and will be 7 in April and Nick who just turned 5.

7. My first love was quilting but after shattering my left arm, that has become more difficult. I saw the Cricut on television and realized that the paper piecing is very similar to piecing quilting. Now with my paper piecing and quilting - I tend to do the wild thang and not the conventional!

8. I love Disney with my favorite movie, The Fox and the Hound with my favorite expression is "I'm A Hound dawg!" Okay, its not the same without the drawl . . . but you get my drift! My other favorite of Disney is of course Winnie the Pooh --- I have the tattoo to prove that on my upper right thigh . . . we'll just leave it at that for now!

9. I have always lived in Pittsburgh, PA. I had traveled in my much younger years with Youth for Christ retreats. And are you ready for this, I will be 60 next year and have never flown!!! Ok, I put that on my "bucket list"!!! LOL

10. I am very very blessed by the lovely crafty beautiful friends that I have met and made on line through blogging. Also, I can thank Kari who is the one who had inspired me to start a blog and was always inspired by Canadian Nickel and was thrilled to be a Guest Designer for her!

The 5 bloggers I am tagging are:
