getting to know me

For the first time in my personal blogging history I got tagged! Rachel of Cornflower Blue Studio tagged me with a Q&A. So here it goes...some things about me that you may already know, may be itching to know, or may not care one way or the other to know but you're going to hear it anyway:

1) What was I doing 10 years ago?

I was 23, living in downtown Salt Lake City, Utah, an art history major at the University of Utah and working at their Admissions Office.

2) What are 5 things on my to-do list for today?

cut fabric for two twin-sized Black Forest quilts I've been commissioned to make
watch as many episodes of Gilmore Girls season 7 as I can while I cut fabric
go to the post office
cut more fabric
watch more Gilmore Girls

3) Snacks I enjoy:

chocolate chip ice cream
straciatella yogurt
fresh strawberries

4) Things I would do if I were a billionaire:

Pay off our student loans, buy a little house in a pretty part of Europe, spend a month every year in a different part of the world, buy an original painting by Wilhelm Hammershøi to hang in my bedroom, anonymously donate a lot of money to different educational programs keeping and creating art and music programs in public schools (because I have to list something non-selfish, right?).

5) Places I have lived:

Ponca City, Oklahoma
Houston, Texas
Rexburg, Idaho
Berlin, Germany
Provo, Utah
Salt Lake City, Utah
Flint, Michigan
Wooster, Ohio
Buehl, Germany
(wow...that's a lot!)

6) People I want to know more about:

Sarah at Porch Swing (An old friend and I already know how she'll probably answer these questions, but you should get to know her, too!)

Allison at In a Nutshell (Hosting a very cool bag swap and whose blog I only recently discovered, due to the very cool bag swap, and I need to get to know her, too!)

Martha at Sew Fab Martha (A frequent visitor to my little blog, so we finally need to get to know each other a little better!)

Julia at Ithaca Waldorf (To whom I'm sending my handmade bag for Allison's very cool bag swap so I better get to know her especially since I just found her blog and it looks very cool too!)

This is me at one of my favorite places in the world, the Great Blasket Island, gazing at the western coast of Ireland on my 33rd birthday last year...definitely a place I'll spending a month at with my billion dollars!

Hey...dunno if you remember me, but I'm one of Karl's five billion cousins. I've been reading your blog for a few months now and I think your life in Germany is the coolest thing ever!!! Anyway, I'm de-lurking because you said you lived in Ponca City...so did I!!! Actually, it was one of the areas on my mission...but that still counts! Crazy coincidence. :)
