20 Random Facts About Me

I stumbled across a post on Pinterest talking about 30 things your kids should know about you. I thought it was an amazing idea! And with the free downloadable digital images I just knew I had to turn it into a mini album. So I’m going to be playing along!

I plan to keep the scrapbook album super simple. It will by 8×8 and I will print it on Shutterfly, which means it’s going to be all digital. I plan to have a full 8×8 photo on one page and the other page will hold the title and journaling. Quick and easy is the name of the game.

Right now I’m just creating the pages. But when I’m ready to print the book I will be using this tutorial by my friend Melissa, of DigitalScrapbookingHQ.com, to help me upload full size digital layouts into Shutterfly.

  18. I am an introvert.

I’m really looking forward to working on these pages! I’ll be working on them over time, and not rushing the process. But rest assured, as I complete each page I will share it with you.

Fun tidbit…as I was writing this post my oldest was reading over my shoulder. Every once and awhile he would ask with shock about one of the random facts. We had several conversations just in the time it took me to type out my list. That just goes to show you thatย this stuff is important!

    1. I am an only child, yet the youngest of 6 children.
    2. I have grey eyes. I never liked them until I learned the goddess Athena was famous for having grey eyes.
    3. I’ve moved 25 times in my life.
    4. I have dated an actor that was a regular on Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman, and I didn’t initially know that’s what his job was. So when we dated, I thought people were shouting “whores!” at us, when they were actually shouting, “Horace!”.
    5. My best friend named her daughter after me because she told me I was her hero.

    Oh I love this. I’ve done a 25 things page about 5 years ago. It is still one of my favs. Also worked thru an “Encyclopedia of and Extraordinary Life” (Cathy Zielske class). My five things for 2013:
    1) I still drink water out of evil plastic bottles with lids. Not the refillable ones. The environmentally unfriendly ones. I can’t help it. It just seems cleaner to me. 2) I love kickboxing classes. I used to practice Tae Kwon Do (ten years of it), so all I want to do is kick things. I enjoy the boxing too, but it’s the kicking that’s exciting. Every morning I look forward to class. 3) I adore my dog. He’s a 55 lb. lap dog mix we rescued from the pound. He was my Mother’s Day present in 2006. I knew he was the perfect dog the moment we saw each other. 4) I adore my husband. I rescued him from the pound…l no wait… I met him in college and from the moment we met, I knew we’d be best friends. We will be married for 25 years on Tuesday. 5) my favorite guilty pleasure is Thai Iced Tea. Chocolate and sushi are close, but a cool, creamy Thai Tea is lovely.
