I've been tagged...

I was tagged by Simplegrl at Here's how it works: You post 7 random facts about yourself on your Blog. At the end of your blog list 7 people you are tagging. Let them know that they are tagged by leaving them a comment. I am tagging the following people and while you are checking out their responses, look at their galleries, amazing inspiration in there! Puppet, JBeans, Queen of Paper, MaggieMom, ScappySusan, Lizzy Wurmann G, and Tracy Jackson.

Here are seven random facts about me:
  1. I can listen to Davis Gray all day and not get tired of it
  2. Peonies are one of favorite flowers (I am not that fond of roses)
  3. I dyed my hair once, I was in college and I dyed it black (of course)
  4. The book I am reading right now is Giving by Bill Clinton
  5. I have a slight addiction to Teavana tea
  6. I think I will die without Diet Coke
  7. I can be an obsessive organizer (especially with scrappy supplies – see some images below of flower storage)

Flower Storage

Storing flowers this way may seem a bit obsessive, but it saves me a lot of space. There are many, many jars and packs of Prima flowers in a single tray here. What do I do with this space I save, well, I fill it with more flowers of course. :)

Hope you had a nice Easter holiday!

Hope you all enjoyed your Easter weekend! We went to my family's near Pittsburgh, PA. It was a very nice time with lots family and lots of good food. My favorite is my mom's Easter cheese, not sure how many of you know what this is, but it is essentially eggs, milk and sugar. Some poeple think it is bland, but I love it with ham on homemade buns, yuummmmeee! My contribution to the food was the Easter eggs, I did have to do a little rushing around to get them done in time, but I think they turned out pretty cute.

First Entry...Yippee!

I have really been enjoying hybrid design lately, so I took a chance and submitted to be on the Prima Hybrid Creative Team. I got selected...YEAH! Well, they wanted to have a blog party to welcome us new girls... which sounds fabulous right... well, there was one problem with that for me... no blog. It's been on "the list"... I'm sure you all have one of those "lists" as well. So, now here I am entering my first entry into the blog and trying to get something ready so I can use it for the blog party today. I am not sure how good of a blogger I am going to end up being, but I guess we're gonna find out. :)
