"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?" by Marianne Williamson

Message in a Bottle

I am participating in a Message in a Bottle swap that is just too much fun!

Recently, I received my first bottle:

With tons of goodies:

For every bottle I receive, I send out 2 and I get 4 in return! Talk about some great mail days!

You can see the fun here:

I can't wait to play... :)

Black Paper

A co-worker asked me to make her some of my handmade paper notecards and when I asked her if she had a color preference she said she likes black and white. I decided I would try to make black paper for some of her cards. I've never made black paper. The darkest paper I've ever made is brown. Here are the results:

I got tagged! Twice! Wowzers!

Once by my EtsyPaper Pal Katy

and once by my good Friend Angie

I am supposed to tell 6 things about myself and then tag 5 blogging friends.

Here we go:

1. I have 2 tattoos. One on my ankle and one on my wrist. The one on my wrist has my hubby's name in it.

2. I was a dancer when I was little girl. Ballet, tap and jazz! However, I cried all through a ballet solo at a recital because I have a big stage-fright problem.

3. My favorite cars are Mustangs. I had one in High School. An '81 Mustang - lots of fun! And I had one a couple of years ago. A 2002 beautiful Yellow Mustang. I sold it because 1) My daughter was getting too tall to sit in the back seat and 2) when it rains here in Lubbock the intersections flood pretty bad and I didn't want to get stuck! I shall have another one someday!

4. I love Action Flicks!!!

5. Favorite Food: Fajitas! YUM!

6. I would love to retire in the Texas Hill Country. Beautfiul place. :)

OK, Now to tag:

Well, I am only going to do 3 friends... LOL!

On the subject of tags, here is a card I made a little while back for a swap:
