Speaking of 44, that's how old I am. Can't believe it :)

I see you had nice weather today. We've had rain this past week and just now the sun is poking through the clouds

I love that recipe box idea!

Thank you for playing along with our 20 questions and joining in on our swaps. I'm not sure if I ever mentioned to you, it was your feature on how to do a mixed media collage last year that got me involved with mixed media art!! Thank you for the inspiration, you have no idea how it's changed my life!

Pleased to get to know you better! I love reading things about people. Everyone is so unique! Bloggers are such wonderful folks!

Kimberly Miller said...

Very cool answers. I think we have a lot in common. I love your blog. I also love your favorite number. That's a really interesting question to ask people because we all attract to different numbers for various reasons. The same with colors and textures. Especially us artsy folks. You are very talented. I've enjoyed perusing your space.
