Welcome to my blog! When I started this blog it was all about wire crochet jewelry. I fell in love with the first piece I saw and I had to learn how. I was "hooked"!

Five Things about Me & You Giveaway!

 Inquiring minds want to know!

I'm always curious about the people behind the blogs.  Let's share a little about ourselves!
As an incentive I'll give away this necklace.  To enter, leave a comment listing five things about yourself.  They can be serious or silly!  You don't have to have a blog to enter, but be sure to leave your e-mail address so I can contact you if you're the winner.  On April 1st (No Fooling!), I'll  randomly draw one number from the total number of comments and the winner will receive the necklace.
I'll go first!

1.  I live in the very southeast corner of Kansas, not very far from the Oklahoma, Arkansas and Missouri borders.

2.  My husband & I run a small trucking company from our home.  I do all of our office work, bookwork, DOT compliance, payroll, etc.

3.  I get up at 6:15 a.m. seven days a week.  I'm not a morning person, but I feel better if I stick to the routine.  I have to admit I get up, but I don't get around!  I have to have my "coffee time" before I get the day started!

4.  I have a Cosmetology license.  I haven't worked in a shop in years, but I keep my licence current just in case I ever want to again!

5.  I ride a candy apple red Harley trike and love every minute of it!

Please share!

I'm in.
1. I'm an avid reader and leaning towards buying a Kindle.
2. Hate cooking with a passion, would rather clean the toilet than cook.
3. I won a competition once for best pair of legs (about 4 plus decades ago).
4. Love autumn and winter (hate the heat). But you probably already know that if you read my blog.
5. Used to have a terrible phobia about belly buttons (navels) but I got over that pretty quickly once I had children. Have to say though, they still make me a bit squeamish at times.

oh boy....are you *sure* you want to know??? ;D

1. redheaded Irish almost-60-year-old who honestly believes that if you grow up....you grow old!!!

2. a beginning gardener....okay 4 years into it....with a 50'x60' plot that I "blackcloth" and plant with all kinds of veggies for a local "Squash Hunger" program (http://cdcg.org/SquashHunger.html)

3. I'm in training at the YMCA in a program called "Couch to 5K" to help me learn how to actually run a 5K rather than the normal loping, limping, gimping I normally do.

4. I was once one meal away form 300# but am now a svelte 150# or so.

5. I want to go to Disney World and hug Goofy before I die. :D

Great contest Jana! I love your wire crochet styles!

1. I found your blog in my quest to learn how to do wire crochet.

2. I love to sleep.

3. My dogs are my kids, I have an English Setter and a Springer Spaniel.

4. I love to golf and wish I lived in a warmer climate.

5. I wish I could have lived in the 50's. I feel in my soul as if I've been there but I wasn't born until the 70's.

This has been fun! I look forward to reading more responses!

Katie-Mae, I'm also a red-headed Irish Lass. Kudos for taking control of your life and making the changes you needed to to get healthy! You should be proud!

Jana, this is SUCH a great idea!!! I agree, it would really be nice to know more about the people behind their blogs! :-)

1. I was born in Japan and have lived all over the world.

2. I must have a snack every night...last night I had a piece of pie after midnight (I know, very bad habit!).

3. I was a medical social worker before having kids...have been a "stay at home" Mom for 9 years now (have to smile at that term because I'm never at home it seems!).

4. I have a terrible public speaking issue...bordering on being a phobia really.

5. I am seriously sentimental and have a hard time throwing things out... you name it, I'll save it! :-)

Thanks for the fun opportunity, Jana!
