Tagged

Ok, so several days ago Dawn tagged for a little fun. I had to give this one some thought but I'm finally gonna get it posted. The deal was to take your middle name and use it to come up with some things about yourself or ways to describe yourself. So here goes..

R - Really obsessed scrapper. I've been scrapping for about 2 and a half years but the major obsession didn't start until right around a year ago and got progressively worse after N was born. After those first couple months of newborn exhaustion, I really dived into the whole online community of scrapbookers and haven't looked back. Jolene asked me in my last post how I got so many pages done. The little one goes to bed at 8. So from 8pm til way too late I scrapbook. Not always every night, but quite often.

E - Easy-going. I'm a go with the flow kind of gal. I try to take most things in stride and most of the time it really takes a lot to irritate me. My husband is like this too, so sometimes it makes decision making a pain. "I don't care" is the most common answer to, what are we gonna eat? What do you want to do this weekend?, etc. etc.

N - Not very organized. I mean this in the sense that my house is not in the state that I want it to be. I want to be one of those people who doesn't have "stuff" all over the kitchen counter tops, or the coffee table. I can not stand clutter, yet I seem to struggle with it, and can't seem to overcome it.

A - A Christian. A wife. A mom. A sister. A daughter. An aunt. A friend. That pretty much covers it!

E - Emotional. I cry at the drop of a hat. Commercials can even bring me to tears. I even cried when SpiderMans Uncle died and everyone saw that coming! LOL.


And because no post is complete without a picture, here's a page I got done over the weekend for the One Little Word challenge. This is also using a sketch from Pencil Lines.

Great answers, Leah. Thank you for doing this.

You sound a lot like me. I'm very easy going and very emotional. I've cried over my share of commercials too :-). And even at shows that NO ONE would think tears would come into play. Such as something on The Food Network or the show, "Clean House". I'm a MESS!!! :-)

And yes, you do seem to get alot of scrapbooking done. Good for you!!! This one is great, by the way. Thanks for sharing.

Love your answers... I am sooo with you on the clutter. I can;t stand it, but can't seem to escape it either! Your new LO is great, those ribbons are beautiful!!

Michelle said...

I LOVE that layout of yours! I didn't realise thickers came in hot pink?

Kris said...

Yup, that clutter is a monster, isn't it? And oh my goodness, that easy-going thing...we can't ever get any decisions made either, because it seems neither of us has a definitive opinion on anything! Funny...and maddening all at the same time!

Has anyone told you that you've got some great handwriting?? I can't stand the way mine looks on my scrapbook journaling, but yours is great!

Okay, first off--I LOVE your balance layout!!

And, secondly--my name could absolutely be Renee!!! I am exactly every one of those things!! LOL The girls laugh at me because I cry watching sporting events. How bad is that?

Charin said...
