what's in a name

I've been tagged by Tara and here are the rules:
1. You have to post these rules before you give the facts.
2. Players, you must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of their middle name. If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had.
3. At the end of your blog-post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag.

I'm going to cheat a little... I'm going to use my first name. Lets just say that my middle name is something that prefer to keep to myself! ;)

P - Psychology - My mom sometimes thinks this is what my major should have been (it was actually one of my minors).

A - Art - something that has always been with me in one way or another.

T - Two children. The loves of our lives. I'm a Taurus and I love Trees.

R - Reading - I love it. I wish I had more time for it.

I - Investigative - I've always been the type to grab a dictionary/search the internet (or encyclopedia back in the day!) when I want to learn more about something I just heard or read about.

C - Crafty - Quite obvious. ;) I was just trying to remember when I first started being crafty on my own and I think it was when my mom crocheted some blankets for us when I was little. She taught me how to crochet and I made some mini blankets and pillows for my Barbies and clothes for my dolls. I think I was about 8. I still have one of those pillows and one outfit that was for my favorite baby.

I - Incessant - I can never stop thinking of new crafty/design projects. Notice I wrote 'thinking' not 'making'. Who has the time!? Sometimes I wish I could just turn that part of my brain off and give it a rest. I just can't.

Proof: These are most of the sketchbooks that I carry around. I didn't have two more on hand for the photo. Each one has it's own purpose. One is for pattern ideas, one if for design work sketches, one is for just doodling, one is to just write down ideas, etc. I know it's crazy but I prefer it this way. I used to use one sketchbook with everything in it but I could never find what I was looking for.

A - Accessories - I'm not very good about wearing them. I tend to stick to simple earrings and maybe a cuff type bracelet. I'm not really into necklaces although I do have a couple of these with matching pendants and that's pretty much it.

So there you have it... That was fun! Forgive me but I won't be tagging anyone. I discovered a few weeks ago that not everyone enjoys doing these so I won't be doing that again. ;)

    Hi! Ok, I'm not much of a leave-comments-kind-of-gal, but you blew my mind with the candle tree. LOVE candles (make my own) and love photographing - and leaning on/staring at - trees. Absolutely enchanted by your blog.....thanks for the pleasure.
