15 Day Blogger Challenge – Getting to Know the Blogger – Days 10 & 11

The numbers are so messed up on the first post for this challenge! LOL There are definitely more than 15 questions… ;)

Today’s are –

What are some of your fears?

What are your goals? Parenting, Life, Career?



Well, as a mother I am sure you can guess my biggest fears…. We will just leave it at that, shall we?????

I also have ophidiophobia, the fear of snakes! BLECK!!! I can’t even watch them on Animal Planet without having a nightmare!!! And I have developed a fear of heights over the years. It’s weird. I can ride most roller coasters but I can’t get on a Ferris wheel!!!! LOL


Goals – 

Well, again, as a mother my main goal would be to raise children that believe in the saving power of Christ’s blood. Next would be that they are also healthy and happy. Success is in the eye of the beholder, so I want them to be successful in their own eyes. ;)

I want to grow my blog and start selling my designs/creations.  I was doing really well with the blog up until I stopped coming up with my own tutorials! LOL I was averaging well over 200 views a day and over 2,000 on my busiest. Now I can barely hit 75 views a day! WAH!!!! I was thinking that I would be able to get back to sewing this week but now my regular foot for my machine is MISSING!!!!! It’s just GONE!!!! WAH!!!!! Not sure how long it will take me to replace it! There isn’t a Joann’s, Hancock’s or sewing machine repair place anywhere near here!! I set up my sewing space yesterday and that’s when I noticed it was GONE!!! SIGH…… There is a small hope that it might be somewhere in the sewing room but I seriously doubt. Keep your fingers crossed for me!!! I have presents I need to make!

You should have heard me trying to explain to The Hubby what a foot is and why it’s so important. ;)

A short term goal would be to FINALLLLLY get ALLLLLL the boxes unpacked!!! LOL I am getting close, though!!! I am having a space issue, though. Too much stuff and not enough places to put it all!!




Secret Subject Swap Round 2

Welcome to the second Secret Subject Swap. Twenty brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.


Here are links to all the sites featuring Secret Subject Swap posts.  Sit back, grab a cup, and check them all out. See you there:                                                                                                                                                                


My subject is  “What is your favorite Halloween memory?  ”.  It was submitted by  .  

Here goes: 


YILES!!!! My favorite Halloween memory?? Oh, boy… I have been thinking and thinking and thinking about this one since I found out that it was going to be my subject. I have come up with exactly NOTHING! LOL It’s not that I haven’t had good Halloweens, it’s that I just can’t think of a reallllly, realllllly stand out memory except for the first Halloweens of each of my children. LOL I really liked the 3 Halloweens that I went as Princess Leia (once from each movie). Then there were the 2 awesome homemade costumes, one was a pumpkin when I was about 3 made by my Grandma Painter and the other was a pretty fairy costume made by my Grandma Blevins.


Now, if it’s CRAPPY Halloween memories, I have a few of THOSE that stand out!! LOL

One Halloween when I was about 10 I decided to go as a devil. Now, this was before they had the cute girly devil costumes. Oh, no! They had the regular old kind. AND I had a short hair cut a la Mary Lou Retton.

Can you see where I’m going with this??

Anyway, I went to a Halloween party and no one recognized me. They all thought I was a BOY!!!!!!!! I was sooooo upset!! I cried and cried. I called my mom to come get me early. After that I made sure to always go as something girly! LOL And I let my hair grow back out. LOL


There were a couple of Halloweens much worse than that but I don’t want to depress you so we’ll just skip those, K???? LOL


Anyway, to keep you all from being completely bored by my lame post I will post some awesome pictures and cartoons! ;)









OOH!!! I almost forgot!!! I took some pictures of Deanna and myself in Halloween makeup!


Me….. LOL

I LOOOOOVE those fake eyelashes!!!


Deanna. Too bad you can’t see her fangs that well!!!

I still can’t believe she let me take a picture of her!



So, why don’t you all go check out the other blogs, they are bound to have something MUCH better than my post… ;)
