  2. Answer the questions the tagger has set for you and create eleven questions for the people you’ve nominated.
  3. Choose eleven people to give the award to (with fewer than 200 followers) and link them in your post.

11 Facts About Me

  1. I was an elementary school teacher (1st and 2nd grade) for seven years.
  2. I was friends with my husband for seven years before we started dating.
  3. I've been a Stampin' Up! demonstrator for five years. I haven't taught classes or sold anything for several years. It's just a hobby right now and I'm probably going to drop it.
  4. I've always had to have a creative outlet. From oil painting to cross stitching, I've always had an artistic hobby.
