~Talkative Thursday~

Marie Antoinette Award“The Real Person Award”
I recieved this from Jocelyn this morning.
Usually I do not post these or surveys because I get them almost daily, but I am this morning.
Thank YOU Jocelyn your too sweet!

OK you may ask what in the world these are??
Well guess what? I SCRAPPED! Yesterday I scrapped 2 pages! WOOHOO!
But I cannot share just yet because they are my first DT pages for
Treasured Scrapbooking.
So instead I thought I would post a sneaky PEEK!
Just to show I really did scrap pages for the first time in over 2 weeks! I am so happy!

OK onto a survey
I was tagged by a fellow blogger,
one I actually follow almost DAILY she is amazing and so is her Butterfly.

Now if you have tagged me before I apologize but I do get tagged pretty much every 2 or 3 days,
So I rarely do them or I would be filling my blog with tagging (:
I love you anyways though!!
Here are the rules:

1. Link to the person who tagged you and post the rules.
2. Share seven random or weird facts about yourself.
3. Tag 7 random people at the end of your post with their links.
4. Let each person know they've been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

Fact 1. I have a hole in my nose (no not from DRUGS!) from a freak accident when I was 19 and I can put a pencil through my nose. Handy? NO but freaky for drunk parties? YES!

Fact 2. I might have PINK hair but I am so thoroughly domesticated and conservative,
it ain't even funny!

Fact 3. I love baking, I bake everything form home made bread to home made jam.
Love it!

Fact 4. Since moving away from my lifelong home, Oregon.
I do not miss Oregon one little bit, but I do miss the Oregon Strawberries,
and Julie, Cori, and Chelsea (My Ex step sisters/mom) So badly.
I never expected to miss them so much but I do.

Fact 5. When I died my hair pink, I NEVER once thought about the stares and questions I would get. I just did it because I LOVED it and it represented breaking free from the restraints of abuse and I did it. And the first day I was blown away and almost scared by all the people who made fun of me and stared.
Now I am used to it but then I was so naive, it just never occurred to me that anyone would care what color hair I had or even stare at all? Yea, I know I am crazy huh? Crazy stupid! LOL

Fact 6. I started scrapping just to fit in with a group of friends who I secretly thought were insane. I found scrapping to be expensive and ridiculous, then I got hooked. And realized scrapping is what you make of it. And for me it is a creative outlet to share my life story with not only my family but others who travel the same path.

Fact 7. My online friendships mean just as much to me as my real life (very few of those) friendships. I have found that out recently and it sort of shocks me. But it's true.

So that is me in a nutshell.
If you want to pass this TAG on then go right ahead!
I so appreciate every single person who stops by!
Have a beautiful Thursday

Thanks for sharing all the info... I love your pink hair and my girls love it too! I started scrapbooking because I got so consumed in all the creativity of others I saw blogging and I got addicted, I said I wouldn't make cards and lately there are more cards on my blog than scrapping! I love everything crafty though. :)
