Tagged!

I have been tagged by Lindsey to share 6 fabulously uninteresting things about myself...

1. I love to work with vintage photographs of strangers. I have no old photos of my "real" ancestors, so I adopt random antique ancestors to create art with. The picture to the left is from Luna Girl, a great source for awesome pictures :)

2. I love, love, love Buffy the Vampire Slayer television series. If I am ever alone with the house to myself to scrap, I turn on the DVD player and watch as many episodes as I can, volume up super high (I usually watch Noggin all day long with my kids, so this arse-kicking clever heroine is a treat for me).

3. My paper cutter is actually named "Buffy". Hey, it's pink and slays some serious paper...

4. Halloween is my most favorite holiday. I wish it were a week-long extravaganza with at least a three-month lead of celebration. And every town should have a Halloween parade and a town hall party with apple bobbing. Seriously. Maybe I should plan one for my town.... hmmm...

5. My personal scrapbooks almost always use black and white photographs. That way I can use whatever paper I like, plus I like the timelessness to the photos...

6. In my pre-stay-at-home-mama-days, I used to teach English. Before that, I worked at the library at Central Michigan University. I have at least one bookshelf in every room and hallway. I am a complete word nerd, and am proud of it. I also like to make up words and treat them like real words.

Now I get to tag 6 people! Yay!

vintage bella who, by the way, is planning the most fabulous trunk show...
the Queen of Re, the founding sister to vintage bella's trunk show :)
Andrea whose darling angels are as puuurty as can be...
Jessica a sweetie I met on eBay who makes pretty scrapbooks too!
Janny who is one of the most talented paper piecers and paper artists I have ever encountered...
Megan whose Shabby Blogs is one of the prettiest places to go for pretty blog needs, with freebies galore and tutorials

Fun! Thank you for tagging me. I'm a word nerd, too; I really have to limit how many books come through my door! I will definitely be playing along with the tag a little later this week.
I hope you're having a happy 4th of July weekend... :)
