The Honest Scrap Award

by Wendy Gabriel

Carole Brown at Ecosystem Gardening has bestowed upon me the honor of  The Honest ScrapHonest Scrap Award. Like she mentioned in her post, I don’t usually do these kinds of things, but Carole has perfected the art of gentle persuasion, so here it is.

To accept this honor, I have to tell you 10 honest things about myself that you wouldn’t know from reading this site. And I have to tag 7 other bloggers to participate. Thanks Carole!

So here we go, 10 things to know:

  1. My favorite color is purple… any shade. Purple has been my favorite color probably since the day I was born. I’ve never waivered. Other colors have tried to surpass purple in my heart… spring green has come close but purple remains my color of preference.
  2. My dream is to be a published Children’s Book author and illustrator. I have a few books near completion (one I’ve been “working” on since I was in middle school), a journal full of written ideas and sketchbooks full of visual ideas.
  3. I love milk chocolate. I know that all the health benefits come from dark chocolate… but I can’t help myself. My favorite is Green & Black’s Organic (Milk).
  4. I’ve lived in Ohio, Michigan, Minnesota, Los Angeles, Chicago, New York and currently in Fargo, North Dakota.
  5. I have three younger sisters. I’m very close emotionally to all of them and very far away in actual driving miles… thank goodness for cell phones, email and texting.
  6. I am a twitter addict. I’ve met some amazing people through twitter (like Carole) and am always learning something new.
  7. I do hug trees… lots of them.
  8. I can’t think clearly when my home isn’t organized… right now it’s not quite organized.
  9. I frequently forget my canvas bags when I go to the store or I only bring one when I need two or three. Luckily, I carry a big purse…
  10. I love lists (which is probably tied in to #8). I make lists for everything. Frequently when I mention something I forgot to do, my six-year-old daughter replies, “You should’ve really put that on a list.”

There it is. Probably more than you ever wanted to know about me! Now it’s time to Sleeping rooster drawn by Wendy Gabriellearn some fascinating things about some other writers.

    Wendy, thanks for taking up the challenge of gentle persuasion! I didn’t want to do my list. In fact, I felt downright terrified, but it turned out to be fun. I am so looking forward to seeing your childrens books. I can just imagine how beautiful they will be!

    Well done Wendy on sharing. Yes, Carole is a gentle and persuasive pal. I should go and write my list right now because she tagged me too!

    It’s fun to be tagged! Thanks! Now I just have to get my kids to bed early enough in the evening that I can still actually think to compose a blog post. Fingers crossed!!!

    I am 100% with you on #8, 9, and 10. I’ve been known to leave the grocery store with my arms full of loose items.

    I agree, it’s fun to be tagged… glad you went for it. I was “Happy” after I did mine recently. Great list. Thanks for the award. 😉
