I'm sorry that I haven't been around friend. How are you? I've been going through a funk. A no sewing, not much computering, and definitely not blogging funk. I've been resting, reading, planning school - trying to make sure I have my priorities straight. Trying to find the balance between my home life and resposibilities and my internet life of reading blogs, preparing for swaps, flickring. I know most of us go through this from time to time. I know I want to keep blogging, so I need to make a conscious effort to do so. So here we go....
I've been tagged for a few memes. How do you pronounce meme anyway? Is it mem or me me or meem or what?
this one is from Susan at chickenfoot
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.
