Very nice lists : )! I have always admired people that can sew! AMAZING : )! You look WAY young in your profile picture. Why don't you watch tv? What is your favorite thing you have ever sewed? Hope your day is FANTASTIC!

Thanks for saying I look young! I'm going to be telling that to everyone today! : )

Why don't I watch TV? A little over a year ago I was working a second job in the evenings....waiting table at my friend's bar. I was never home and got out of the habit of watching TV and found it was liberating! I don't have cable or a DVR, so if I wanted to watch a show, I had to be home at the correct time slot. Once I quit the second job, I just never got back into the habit. [in the interest of full disclosure, I feel I need to tell you that I do watch full seasons of TV shows if they're on DVD and I'm addicted to youtube!]

My favorite thing I've sewed? I've made lots of costumes for my nieces and nephews and those are always fun but, I think the wedding dress I made for my best friend's wedding is my current fav. You can see pictures in my photo albums on myspace at www.myspace.com/starla_brite

Hey friend o rama! I don't see your comment! I jumped right over to see it!

Rebeckah said...

Whoops Now I see it : ). I can't wait to see the wedding dress pictures. I am going there now! AWESOME!

Do the ponce brothers know that you have a fan club for them? : ) I have been wondering that. Did you have a fun break for Labor day? I hope so. I'm glad you got to go away for a little bit. I never could find your pictures on myspace. I did find your page, but I also couldn't figure out how to add you as a friend. It asked me for your email adress to verify that I really knew you. I didn't know it. But I do really know you : )!

Thanks for your email address! I will request you today! Do you do facebook too? Facebook is my favorite of the two because sometimes myspace takes so long to bring the pages up.
