What is your favorite jbs product?
Banners, butterflies and any of the buttons/brads. Oh, and any of the journaling/calendar goodies. Sigh. I can't pick!
What countries have you traveled to?
Just Canada. But I definitely have a bucket list! This is, in fact, really ironic, since my husband only became a US citizen a couple of years ago.
What literary character do you identify with the most?
I think I identify most with Katniss Everdeen - I'm pretty strong, quiet, have a deep sense of family, and a passion for life. I'm also NOT a high maintenance kinda girl.
What are you really bad at?
Playing basketball. I'm a student of the game and understand it perfectly, love watching it, but can't play. At all. This I'm fully aware of due to the fact that it's my husband and our boys' favorite sport to rock in their free time. Oh. And ironing. My husband is a professional, so he wears dress shirt and pants to work. Sometimes I wonder if I put more wrinkles in than I take out. Oops.
What is your favorite line from a movie?
"In many ways, the work of a critic is easy. We risk very little yet enjoy a position over those who offer up their work and their selves to our judgment. We thrive on negative criticism, which is fun to write and to read. But the bitter truth we critics must face, is that in the grand scheme of things, the average piece of junk is probably more meaningful than our criticism designating it so. But there are times when a critic truly risks something, and that is in the discovery and defense of the new. The world is often unkind to new talent, new creations, the new needs friends. Last night, I experienced something new, an extraordinary meal from a singularly unexpected source. To say that both the meal and its maker have challenged my preconceptions about fine cooking is a gross understatement. They have rocked me to my core. In the past, I have made no secret of my disdain for Chef Gusteau's famous motto: Anyone can cook. But I realize, only now do I truly understand what he meant. Not everyone can become a great artist, but a great artist can come from anywhere." Anton Ego, Ratatouille
Are you related to anyone famous?
Nope. Not that I know of!
What is in your purse?
Wallet, notebook, pen, epipen case for our son, blistex, aviator shades.
What is your current desktop picture?
A really old photo of our oldest son throwing something into the ocean on the beach. I can't bring myself to change it because it reminds me of that day when I just decided to drop everything and head to the beach after picking him up from school.
Where did you live in 1987?
A fairly good size town in Iowa.
What is the Best TV Show Ever Created?
Hmm. Either Dr. Who, or The Big Bang Theory. I'm such a nerd.
Can you change the tire on a car?
Yes. I was quite the tomboy as a kid, and helped my dad work on our cars. I wish I knew more.
If you had to choose between a million bucks or being able to fly, which would it be?
Show me the money!
Would you rather shop in a mall or on the internet?
Hmm. Probably online. I'm not really for browsing or crowds. I also love the unique and handmade, both things that are hard to find at the mall.
What do you spend too much time doing?
Browsing the internet. I try to set limits so that I don't get sucked in, and it's gotten a lot better! As many ideas and as much inspiration as I find there, ultimately, my time is limited, and I'm more frustrated when I end up without the time to actually DO creative things!
What three things do you have on you at all times?
Hmm. Do I really carry that many? I'd say the only item that ALWAYS goes with me, is my iphone. I've had one for almost 3 years, so I can't imagine life without it. And my wedding ring! After almost 10 years, I still think that's one of the best decisions I've made in life.
When was the last time you wore panty hose?
I can't remember. LOL!! I usually find a way around it!
a musing to create
