TAG YOU'RE IT!!

Well here it is 2009.. Happy New Year!!!

I have been tagged by Jenna Louise at quilt crazy gal blog

Here are the rules to play the game:

1. When you are tagged you are asked to list eight random facts about yourself and post them on your blog for visitors to enjoy.
This is gonna be fun!
2. Tag eight of your blogging friends and leave them a comment that they have been tagged and to join in the fun if they have the opportunity. (If not, that's okay. They can still enjoy the random facts everyone shares:) Be sure to list a link to your eight friends in your posting.

I guess I need to tell you 8 things about myself you may or may not know...
1. I have been married to my wonderful husband for 54 years.
2.We have 4 children, 2 boys and 2 girls, Our oldest son died at the age of 44 from a heart attack.
3. Watching the grandchildren grow has been a delight...Emilee , the dancer/actress age 20,Rebecca the artist, age 18, and Andrew the doctor, age 21.
4.I am a classical pianist, much out of practice!
5.I Love to drink pickle juice!
6.I love all of the arts.... I studied portrait painting and have sold my work including seascapes and landscapes. I have been a doll maker for many many years, and added quiltmaking to the list. I like to do miniature quilts made to scale..and have received some 1st place ribbons for my work. Recently added beading to my list making art dolls and bracelets. I am interested in Traditional Rug Hooking and am about to begin on that endeavour...NEVER A DULL MOMENT!!
7. My career began with the London Life Insurance Company , then after our children was launched from the nest....I was a consultant for Estee Lauder Cosmetics and taught skin care,and was on TV!! Then I worked for Weight Watchers (after losing 40 pounds) and worked there for 14 years.
8. I have had my own small business since the 80's and supply a couple of shops with my things. I also sell on Etsy. My pledge for the new year is to pay more attention here and list more...

Well there you have it... Interesting or not I have had a charmed life being able to follow my dreams and a dear husband who has always supported my whims and fancies...
I shall now proceed to tag some other bloggers and hope they will play along too......

Ok lady in sequins, thanks for the tag. I have passed it on to some interesting people, although I'm in doubt that they share your love of pickle juice.LOL What an interesting life you have had so far. Can't wait to see what you do with the next 50+ years. Gleefully Sharon

Hi Maggie! Thanks for the tag and I completely understand about the pickle juice! Nothing better than Dill Pickle juice in my opinion!
All the best to you and yours in the New Year!
