Much thanks to Larissa for nominating me for a ” One Lovely Blog” award!
Part of this process is to reveal 7 things about myself. Here goes:
• I am a FIRST CLASS GIRL SCOUT—awarded back when it was the highest award in Girl Scouting. Still proud a million years later! Mad Scout Skills Rock.
• Remains fascinated and terrified by Victorian Hair Art
• Loves www.urbansketchers.org
• Has an “Art McGuyver” pal, Bosslady Nevena, who runs the most rocking boot company in the world AND can make a Marie Antoinette costume fueled only by pipe cleaners, hot glue, and a flute of champagne. Art McGuyver pals are essential. Who else are you going to call up when you need an honest critique or instructions to build a Tiki sign? She has all my creative props!
• Likes the NASA website way too much
• Yearns for NY Pizza from Lombardi’s every dang day
• Tries to work smarter not harder. Blew out the rungs on the “ harder” part!
