Happy Leap Day!!






Hello All,

Happy Leap Day!!! Happy Birthday to all you leap babies!!! Must be nice to grow a year older every four years!!

First off I have to tell you that I have been tagged by Dani of Ambitions Designs. I have to tell 6 interesting things about myself.

Here are the Rules:

1. Link to the person that tagged you.

2. Post the rules on your blog.

3. Share six non-important things/habits/quirks about yourself.

4. Tag six random people at the end of your post by linking to their blogs.

5. Let each random person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their website.

Ok, let me think here...

1. I know this is a weird one. Especially since I grew up in Cleveland which gets pretty cold and hit with tons and tons of snow. I hate the sound of snow crunching underneath my feet( so annoying, it it sometime like finger nails on the chalkboard.) Awful!!

2. Dumpster diving and road side finds are also something I do almost anywhere for a good piece of art (My hubby and kids call me crazy for doing it.)

3. I love to watch a good comedies and classic love story.

4. I love helping others especially children.

5. I have a weakness for chocolate (yummy!!)

6. When I was younger I got an opportunity to attend a celebrity party and hung out with quote a few well know celebrities.( I really wasn't suppose to be there but some got me in. Shhhh!!! : )

Now here are the six wonderful people I am tagging!

Be A Sweetheart...

Hello All,

Happy Valentine's Day to everyone. I hope you have a heartfelt day. As you know someone special is usually on our minds on Valentine's Day. We usually celebrate our relationships by exchanging gifts, cards and candies. Many times we have a delicious candlelight dinner with the person you love. But there are others on Valentine's Day who may not be so lucky as to share a hot, nutritious meal with someone they love. Just take a few minutes or a few hours today to be a Sweetheart to someone. Meaning, give a neighbor a call and wish them a Happy Valentine's Day. Maybe, stop by and give sweets to someone you know who may have lost a love one and needs a bit of love today. Or take a dish to an older relative or neighbor an send them Valentine wishes. I am sure it would brighten their day. Just a thought. Something that was on my mind and thought I would share it with everyone.
Enjoy Your Day!!
Elaine :)
