Tagged? Me? I see it all the time on the blogs of other designers and scrappers, but not until today, or last night, did I get tagged for the first time. Wow, makes me feel popular and wanted :) So, I'm going to follow the rules, which are

1. Link your tagger and list these rules on your blog.

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 blogs.

4. Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

I was tagged by Denise who left a lovely comment on my blog about my freebie yesterday. I really enjoy reading comments from downloaders, whether they say hi on my blog or when they download at 4shared. So thanks Denise, for leaving a comment, and to all those who "DWJWD" and comment regularly for my freebies and other designers' freebies.

Seven random facts about me: I can't believe people actually would want to know this stuff about me, but here goes:

1. I drink too much diet coke. Can't stand Diet Pepsi. Must be Diet Coke and I prefer Diet Coke with Lime flavor. Can't beat it. Best soda around. And I have to have ice. Lots of ice. This was the hardest thing for me to give up when I was pregnant. Coffee was easy!

2. I am originally from Pittsburgh, but I don't say "yins" "pop" "gumband" (aka rubber band) "crick" (aka creek) "yous guys" "dawn tawn" (aka down town) or "Sliberty" (aka East Liberty). Nor do I have a mullett, frizzed and fried permed hair, drink Iron City Beer and consider Steeler Sundays highly sacred, although I do silently route for them when my husband is watching them.

3. I am 41 going on 42 in the fall and I feel my age very much as I have two young boys, a 3 year old and a 22 month old. I have earned every gray hair on my head, even the ones that are hidden when I remember to color my hair. And I don't color it too often, so I am becoming forgetful in my older years, too. The other day I realized that some of the mother's in my sons preschool are young enough that I could have been their babysitter or worse, their mother. Talk about depressing!!!! I think I found even more gray hair that night.

4. I was asked by someone to be a Mary Kay lady because I am just "perfect" for it. Now where in the world did she get that idea? Was she on drugs and didn't see me? I am the mom who throws on sweats, brushes her teeth and goes out the door with her kids. No make up. No hair primping. Just plain old me. Make up? Only worn for baptisms, special evenings out with hubby and events where someone other than me might have a camera snapping away that might catch me. So I thought that idea of me being a Mary Kay Lady was funny. No riduculous! I couldn't even drive a pink caddy--I like my minivan! I think I have a tube of Chanel lipstick from the 1980s in my make up drawer. I should throw that away.....

5. I have two dogs and three cats. Ernie is a black lab, very fat and her job in life is to eat her food and all the food my boys throw on the floor or give her under the table when they don't think I'm looking. Ernie is a she name Ernestine, but truly she is named for Ernie Els, one of my husband's favorite PGA golfers. Gyro is a german shepard, beautiful and alert. She keeps me and the boys safe and actually poses for photos. She is getting arthritis and can't run as fast as she used to which makes me sad. Our oldest cat is Buc, the name my sons call all cats. He is your average orange tabby male cat. Sophie is my beautiful Maine Coon cat. She is named after Pittsburgh's former mayor, Sophie Maslof because when I went to bring her home she was in a cage in the car and just how this cackling kind of cry and just wouldn't be quiet. That was the way Sophie the mayor was. She had this awful, cackling voice and she never knew when to shut up. So I named my cat Sophie in her honor. I also liked the name. And Homer is a HUGE black and white medium haired cat my husband found on the golf course where he worked. He is about 20 pounds and the most gentle, loving cat I've ever had. He is named for Homer Simpson, although I don't watch the Simpsons but my husband does. And I thought the name was cute. I wanted his name to be Otis but that didn't seem like the name for him.

6. I listen to talk radio when I can convince my boys that we don't always have to play Diego DVDs in the car or on those very rare occasions when I am alone in the car. Liberal or conservative it doesn't matter. I just like listening to people talk about life and hearing the opinions of others about all different subjects. I think it helps shape my opinions because you don't always get the opportunity to hear the other side of things both political and in general. So I think talk radio is very important in our society. Sports talk radio isn't for me, but I like the rest of it, especially Dr. Laura who I don't pick up out here in the country.

7. I am a clutter hound. I save things that should be trashed. Now, some things I save are important but magazines---I just threw away three years of Coastal Living, Creating Keepsakes and Yankee magazine. The garbage bag was so heavy I thought I'd fall down the stairs trying to get it to the garage. So I clutter things up subconciously---my car, my dresser, my closet (which I just spent two hours cleaning and organizing), my kitchen cabinets (I think I have spices in there from ten years ago). Drives my husband nuts. If we ever get divorced it will be because he can't deal with my clutter.....

Now I get to pick seven people to tag---what fun! I pick and you guys get to go learn some crazy weird stuff about them if they decide to participate. Some of these people I know and some I don't but I do read their blog, so it should be interesting to see who participates:

Okay, now back to work. I put up the sixth set of Museum Papers last night. Did you see it? Did you like it? I think the colors remind me of a carnival. Well here it is so go see it and like it or hate it or maybe even buy it...Click on the image to get to the product in my store at Divine Digital.

Today I am going to finally put the finishing touches on "In Flight" and make the previews so I can get it loaded in the store tonight. I had a sampler of "In Flight" as one of my Divine Birthday cupcakes and now the "In Flight" sampler is in the Divine Digital store under designer sampers/freebies. So if you don't have it, you can get it there or just buy the kit when it comes out tonight or tomorrow because what is in the sample will be in the full size kit.

And I'm still working on those previews for the June DAD. Speaking of the June DAD, today's freebie is an overlay that I made to use in the June DAD kit, "Daddy's Candy." Eventually this will be one of six overlays in my "Like a Child" overlay series. I have two sets so far in the store and plan to have more soon. Today's freebie is a commercial use okay freebie, no credit required. But comments would be nice! I hope you like it and find some great paper or element to make with it. So click on the overlay image to get to the download and send your friends here, not to 4shared, to partake in the candy:

Well, that is it for today. I'll be back sometime tomorrow with my fourth and final Memorial Day Weekend freebie.

Until then, best.....

Well, according to your facts 1, 3, 4, 5, and 7, you and I are a lot alike. Although I have only 1 cat left... she's 19+ and really showing her age.

Anyway... it was great fun getting to know some interesting things about one of my favorite designers. Looking forward to your June DAD and thanks much for the overlay. Have a great rest-of-the-long-weekend!
