Hey, thanks to Daisy at http://daisyolsen.com/ for teaching me about memes and tagging (as in “Tag! You’re it!”). I have a lot to learn but I have found such a supportive group of friends and other Moms online with such a tremendous wealth of experience that I have never truly been alone. YIPPEE Daisy!
So here goes my first tag…
What was I doing ten years ago?
Planning my wedding, river rafting the rapids of the Colorado River and, recovering from a NASTY Brown Recluse spider bite;
Five things on my to-do list for today (well, tomorrow):
Work on metatags for cafepress store – redoing everything to have a better focus (other than Mom really, really needs some creative outlet and is drawing anything her two-year-old ASKS her to draw – HA! – advice??? Let me know – check it out at http://www.cafepress.com/sugarsprouts;
Playdate for my daughter;
Run 5 miles (OUCH! And buy new running shoes SOON!);
Find something for dinner that balances the food groups somewhat while still enticing a two-year-old to eat;
Figure out how to transfer my wordpress blog (http://sugarsprouts.wordpress.com) to a self-host without losing everything (SCARY!).
Snacks I enjoy:
Triscuits with melted cheese; popcorn, Blue Moon beer that is ice cold with an orange wedge, strawberries, bananas and grapes, salt and vinegar chips, and Ben & Jerry’s Chunky Monkey.
Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
After I give all my family and friends enough to never have to worry about anything, ever, I would: – take care of some good left wing causes (environment, women’s rights, etc.);
- help out some causes in countries in Africa where I have lived; and,
- ensure that no kill animal shelters like “Best Friends” in Kanab, Utah have enough to operate
without ever having to turn an animal away.
THEN, my hubby, my daughter, me and all our critters would have a special electric hybrid souped up RV designed and follow the Nascar (yes, I said it – the Nascar Circuit). READY BOYS! There’s a little bit of redneck in this here tree hugger!! At least that’s what my husband always says.
Places I have lived:
Ohio, Pennsylvania, Utah, Kenya, Tanzania, Madagascar, Arizona, New Mexico, and Washington DC.

What I see every day influences what I create, so writing this blog and creating my designs are natural extensions of who I am.
If you are interested in viewing my designs, primarily for kids but also some cool stuff for adults and also doggies (who we all know are integral parts of all families) check them out at:
See you around the mountains and canyons of northern AZ!
