Meme & Softie

This little yellow guy was sent to me from Janet in the softie swap from crafty daisies.  
My boys have been trying to steal him for a couple of days now.  Thank you Janet!

This little brown guy is my contribution.  He is made from a mohair sweater and his eyes are old bridal gown buttons--talk about recycling!


I have been tagged by Susan to tell you all about me.  The rules of the game get posted at the beginning. Each player answers the questions about themselves. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5-6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.

1. what was i doing ten years ago?
I was at home with my  1 year old daughter, spending a lot of time being thrifty.  We lived in student housing and were always on the edge of broke--happy times!

2.five things on my to do list today:
It is Sunday so I will spend lots of time (#1) resting and (#2)relaxing--I have a couple (#3 & #4) of sewing projects to work on and I will go to church (#5).

3.snacks i enjoy:
Hmmm, there are a number of snacks that I enjoy so much that I cannot keep them in the house:  those japanese peanuts with the different crunchy coatings (sesame, soy, etc.), just about any kind of cookie,  and spicy hot trail mix.   I also love dried cherries with dark chocolate, surprisingly I can limit my consumption if the cherries and chocolate are separate (not chocolate covered cherries).  I like apples, and raspberries are my all time fave.

4. things i would do if i was a billionaire:
Buy my mother a house, pay all our student loans and mortgage and car off.  Put in  a swimming pool and do a few remodels.  Pay for the kids college.  I don't know if a billion will cover that much any more!  Design a program to help people who are involved with CPS--parenting, job skills, etc.  And most importantly start hanging out with other rich people so I could guilt them into donating substantially to worthy causes and easing up on consumption.

5.five places i have lived:
 Okinawa, Japan (alas, I was only a baby). Honolulu, Hawaii (I played Chinese jump rope all the time).  Seattle, Washington  (Home and I love the rain). Knoxville, Tennessee (middle school, high school, some college and I don't have an accent).  Sunnyvale, California (the armpit of the world).

6. people that i want to know more about:
See, now this is where I drop the ball--since I have only 3 readers and 2 of them have done this meme I am going to leave it up to my mysterious non commenting readers to unmask themselves and join in on this meme.  Let me know if you do or leave your answers in the comments--I would love to know more about you.

Alright Pasha, I'll take up the challenge of the meme, but not today, but within the next couple of days, okay? Also, can I steal the pictures of the softies off your website and put them in the flickr pool? The little brown guy is so cute. Thanks for participating in the swap.

Hey Pasha,

Didn't know you had a blog-I'm impressed! Things are good on the magical island of Vashon. If it weren't for King county, the cost of houses and the ferry costs, we'd move here in a New York minute.

Keep up the great work!

Love, Linda
