10 Things you may or may not know about me

Sue-Urbane Effect

Here are 10 things you may or may not know about me.  (in no particular order)

1.  I have lived in the Mid-West all my life.  I love it here, I love everything about it. (Well maybe not this last winter.  But even that’s becoming a distant memory.)  The Midwest’s home.  It’ll be a hard sell to get me to ever move away.

2.  My Favorite kind of Vacation is a “Beach Vacation”.  One of my favorite things to do is to sit on the beach under a beach umbrella, listen to music and read a book.  (Getting to the beach from the Midwest can be a challenge.)

3.  My favorite color is RED.  Anyone who knows me even a little bit has probably guessed this already.  Even though I don’t wear the color red often, I love the color red.  I think every room in the house needs a pop of red.  I even collect Red Toile dishes.

4.  I am a middle child.  (No, I don’t have a problem with that.)  I am one of 5 kids, 4 girls, raised in a very small ranch house with only one bathroom.  Funny thing, I don’t remember that being a big issue at the time.  (at least not for me.)  Bonus Trivia:  my husband is also a middle child, 4 boys, one girl.

5.  I met my husband in Hawaii while on Spring Break.  One of us may have been a flirt. Long story for another day.  (Bet that has you wondering.)

6.  I was always a shy and quiet kid.  I never would have guessed that I would love sharing and teaching my projects to groups.  It’s easy when you’re doing something you enjoy.

7.  I don’t embrace change well.  My family will agree on this one.  New things scare me and make me nervous.  I had to be talked into getting a microwave in the 80’s and cable television, don’t get me started.  I’ve had the same flip phone for years and don’t plan on getting a new one until it dies.  Don’t ask me to text,  I don’t text and don’t want too.  The letters are too small and my fingers too big.  (even my 83-year-old dad texts)

8.  I am not an artist.  I do, however, consider myself a creative person.  I did take art classes all through high school and even in college.  I enjoy art even though I can’t draw.  One thing I’ve learned about art is that there are all kinds of art and art is subjective.  One of the reasons I enjoy Paper Crafting so much is that I can be creative and make small little masterpieces that make me happy.  When I was a kid I loved doing all kinds of crafts.  At a very young age, I even had a thriving candle business for a while.  (or least I thought I did)  FYI:  I don’t like being called “crafty”.  I am “creative”.

9.  I love flowers.  I enjoy photographing them, growing them in containers and in gardens.  Flowers make me happy.  I love Springtime when I can make all those treks to the Garden Shop and pick all my flowers to plant.  My favorite flowers are daisies, roses and hydrangea.  Wouldn’t they look lovely in a vase together?

10.  My Family is Everything to me.  Last but definitely not least is my family.  One of the most important things in my life is my family.  I have three wonderful children, a loving husband, two adorable grandsons, great daughter and son in-laws, sweet father, fun siblings, in-laws, nieces and nephews.  All who mean the world to me.  Family is Everything!  I love my crazy family.
