A friend who blogs as MilkCan tagged me asking me to post random pieces of information that not everyone might know, so in the spirit of sharing here you go.

1)my daughter introduced me to modern scrapbooking and papercrafts, after a long absence the muse returned and we have had the best fun since
2)my mum is my biggest fan
3)my favourite color is red but it does not show up very often in things that get posted to the gallery or blog
4)will take a nice dark crisp navy over black any day
5)the first thing I remember altering (age 9) was a grocery carton into a Barbie house, Santa must have missed that item on the list so I made I myself
6)the biggest thing I have altered was an old steamer trunk, a gift from friends when I started travelling, although large was surprisingly practical as my closet was always packed and ready to roll
7)today I worked on a new blog banner and signage for classes, it is taking forever to finish and wishing the weekends were one day longer

Being tagged is a good excuse to share a picture of a tag gifted to me from a nice lady by the name of Judy in California. Now off in search of some other friends to pass the tag onto.

Your Beyond the Garden Gate altered book is just gorgeous - really beautiful! Interesting random facts - red is a favorite color of mine too. Good luck with your blog banner - I've given up re-doing mine LOL!

Thank you for visiting my blog! You have very lovely crafts, here! It must be a big change to relocate from Cape Cod to Down Under! I have roots to PEI. =)
