LOVE your new header Tammy. Looks SOCOOL and artistic!

Also love your answer to the historial figures you despise!

paintergirl said...

We are very similar. I'm so glad you did this! I forgot all about Jo-yes a fav of mine too.

Tammy said...

Yay!! Glad you noticed the header Jolene! It's a bookmark I made last year, but size-wise it was perfect for a header - and time for a change!

I had fun with the questions - I had to really think about some.

I liked my answer about historical figures too. A Bit tongue in cheek, but oh so true!!

hope your headache went away!
Wish I could always laugh- perhaps you can teach me someday in Italy : )

Left-handed Trees... said...

We both had Jo March--which says a lot about a person in my opinion!
Great answers...

Sacred Suzie said...

Oh Tammy, there so much I love about this post. Your motto, your favourite reform...I wish I knew you in person, I know we'd have much to talk about.

I know moving is scary but I can sense this will be good for you. You need a new place to infuse you with creative energy. People will like you wherever you go.

Fabulous answers, Tammy!

And your blog looks great!

Karen Beth said...

Ah yes, my favorite poet is also Tennyson. I love him! I also have a weakness for procrastination. Wonder what I should be doing right now! Ha! :)

Wow, that header is really cool - I love the sharpie-ness of it :)

Great answers btw! I keep meaning to do this one, I guess I've got some time before the next time it's Wednesday!

Thanks for sharing
