Tagged and thankful

I’ve been tagged by Shell. Here’s how it works:
1. Players must list one fact, word, or tidbit that is somehow relevant to their life for each letter of their first or middle name.
2. When you are tagged you need to write your own post containing your first or middle name game facts, word, or tidbit.
3. At the end of your post choose one person for each letter of your name to tag.
4. Don’t forget to leave a comment telling them that they have been tagged, and to read your blog.
5. If I’ve tagged YOU (see below), please join in on the fun!

I – Imagination, Ideas, Inspiration
lol my parents used to tell stories about my’ vivid’ imagination and ideas. But then it’s that too that made me chose to live on the other side of the world – best thing I ever did!

L – Live, love, laugh & learn
is a motto in my life. I love sharing my life with my family and friends, have learned that laughter is a great way to deal with things and that mistakes are ok as they provide learning opportunities.

K – Kindness
to be kind to yourself and others is a key value for me.

A – Art
I’ve come to realize that there are many different forms of art. Art with a big A and art with a small a. I enjoy them all, some I understand better others are alien but all enrich my life.
I’m tagging Lee, Jo , Kirstin and Penny. So if you want play along…

Oh and check out Lee’s blog! Remember she promised a free class? Well it’s very cool and it’s on her blog now!
And for people who have not visited Janines blog., she had a great link to another cool new blog with a freebie class here >> Kelly Rotherham’s new blog.

Earlier this week the Cherry Arte price I won in a NZDares draw arrived! I thought I might get 1 paperline and maybe a rub on but when I opened the box I was totally blown away!!! I got all 3 new paperlines plus all the coordinating rub ons and cardboard embellies!!! I just could not believe it, how lucky am I??!  So thanks again NZDare gals, you’re doing such a fab job!!!

I might be out of action for a few days, gonna have my little knee operation tomorrow. It’s only keyhole surgery and Rainer will drive me home afterwards. Have to bed rest for a few days so Rainer can double as my personal slave O.0 Poor man LOL! Then 2 weeks off work. That’s actually the best part of it, and of course removing the flapping cartlidge will hopefully stop the locking up of my knee too.
Hmm I’ve felt a bit pre-occupied the last few days and am so ready now to have this OP over and done with!

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful weekend!
