7 things about me--I've been tagged!

I was tagged by Crank Heart Pony (her blog is here).

2) Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3) Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blog.

7 Things About Me:

1) I love Owls. I'm obsessed with them in every way. If anyone bought me anything pertaining to owls I will love them forever. This also applies to cute deers, Alice from Alice in Wonderland, nautical things (specifically clipper ships, wheels, anchors, and lighthouses), and birds. But, owls are number one! Check my tattoo out here lol.

2) I am (freshly) 23 and my boyfriend is 39 (with his birthday in January). I absolutely adore him. He is the best boyfriend I've ever had. We mesh so well together, and I NEVER would've thought it. I am very much in love with him. I highly recommend an older mature guy for every girl! =D

3) I always want to learn about everything, but I hate official schooling. This applies to crafting, I try out everything, and I'm not a master in one or the other. Although, if I was ABLE to choose, it would be painting's too messy for me! Hahaha.

4) I have a handmade addiction. I shop handmade and I constantly buy supplies to make handmade, but haven't really made anything worthy of posting about/bragging about.

5) I have a 20 year old deaf & blind cat. If you saw him, you'd think he was sick (he's so little and skinny). But, he's so healthy and happy. I honestly think (hope) that he has MANY years left in him.

6) It's a lot harder than I thought to think of 7 things about myself that someone would even find remotely amusing. I smoked for 7 years and on August 2nd 2008 I quit and I still am going strong. ( I used the nicotine-free smoking cessation drug, Chantix. The thought of being on Chantix and all it's crazy side-effects was probably what propelled me MORE to stop, than the actual effects of the drug itself.)

7) My secret obsession is heavy heavy death metal. It surprises people because they think I'm so sweet & nice looking.

Now you guys know all my dirty little secrets, I Tag:
Vol.25, A Very Mary, Bobbi, Howtodrawacupofcoffee (Michele), SkunkBoy Creatures (Katie), Pink Lemonade Stand, and Lily Bean!
If I tagged you, that means I want to know more about you!

PaperSparrow/BungleBearDesgins @ Rivertown Craft fair

Today, I went to the Rivertown craft fair in Deland! It was my first craft fair!!! I loved it. I dragged my boyfriend, and I think he secretly liked it too, because he certainly dropped $40 on this candle thing lol.
So, I bought some amazing prints/gocco's from Andrea over @ PaperSparrow/BungleBearDesgins.
She was so adorable and her and her (?)boyfriend were super nice. My boyfriend bought this super cool candle thing. It's a stone that is lacquered to look like wood, and it's a candle. I don't do it justice with my description so I'll post a picture (which i don't do justice for either =( )

Now I'm inspired, I'm gonna go do stuff!!!
Oh!!!!!!!!!!! ANDDD, i won paper from AVeryMaryDesign! She has the cutest shop! I'm super excited about it!
I have to go do stuff now. <3

VanillaJoy Giveaway!

Hey guys! Check out VanillaJoy's giveaway!!!!
It's for the MiniBox (by The Original Scrapbook)which is a workplace/storage solution for every kind of crafter! This kind of thing only exists in my organized addicted mind!!!!!!!! I love the little label holders for each box. I would cry and cry and cry as many tears as I could to own one of those!!!! My "craft space" is basically a table in the cat's room (since the cat was there first lol). My cat is 20 years old, and he's deaf and blind. He can't quite make it to the litter box (which is on the floor RIGHTnextTOme....*crinkles nose*) sometimes i wake up and rub my groggy eyes and step in either his poo, pee or vomit (or any combination of the 3) once a week. I also feel bad that I pile everything on the table...what if something rolls off and my kitty eats it and/or chokes!!!!! I would feel horrible. I need a nice organized place to stash all my stuff...and this is a dream come true (with a hefty price tag not in my vocabulary!!).
