Tag... I'm it.

Fellow artist Deb has tagged me to share 7 things about myself. I did this a while back, so here is some new stuff!

1. In addition to drawing and photography, I enjoy wood working, model trains, and gardening. Finding time for all those activities, needless to say, proves difficult!

2. I love roller coasters, except for wooden ones. (I'll ride the wooden ones, but I enjoy the smooth ride of the steel coasters way more!!)

3. I loathe having to work indoors on beautiful days (like today!).

4. Mountain Dew is my coffee.

5. I listen to contemporary Christian music. My favorite group is Third Day.

6. I like to cook. I will usually do Saturday morning breakfast of either pancakes or French toast, which the kids love. Sometimes we have breakfast for dinner, and I will cook that as well. I can cook other foods, mind you, but breakfast is my "special" thing to do.

7. I am somewhat selfish with my time. It takes an effort for me to volunteer to help out with certain events, but once I commit, I am glad I did.

Here are the artists I am going to tag to share 7 things about themselves if they so desire:

Joyce Ann Martin

Nikki Shoemaker

Matalonga Jorge

Honestly, I am glad you did this because I was finally able to get to your blog. For some strange reason it would never open of me before and I could never leave a comment to return the favor.. You always leave feedback on mine and I was wanting to do the same for you!!! Now I can!!!

Oh, I love the blog banner!!!!
