I've been tagged by Mrana ( and so here's what I"m to do:

1-post these rules
2-each person tagged must post 8 random(... hopefully interesting) facts about themselves
3-tags should write a blogpost of these facts
4- at the end of the post 8 more bloggers are tagged and named
5-go to their blog and leave a comment telling them they're tagged.

Here's my 8:

1. I love candy of all sorts -- and cookies, and cakes, and anything sweet! But I keep a stash hidden and dole out each and every morsel by making me do something to be rewarded (such as walk a mile, clean the oven, etc.) .... and yes, I do stick to it! LOL

2. I LOVE the out of doors and am most comfortable in the woodlands.

3. One of the best part of my job is being able to wear bluejeans and T-shirts/sweatshirts to work (I work at a school teaching horticulture and running an Arboretum)

4. I've written a book and had it published by a University Press

5. I've had a ton of poems published and yet haven't written a poem in YEARS!

6. I started my visual arts journey by creating pretty soaps, then paper arts such as collage and altered books.

7. I keep 'scrapbooks/journals' for each of my grandchildren.

8. My sweet husband does most of the cooking.

At this point I am to tag 8 folks -- but I think I"ll simply ask 8 friends to volunteer for the honor and let me know when the post!


(and that's probably more than you'll ever want to know about me! LOL)
