Tagged... Random 7

I was tagged by Amy who was tagged by Cynthia and so on...

It's my first tag. Here we go, 7 random things about me:
  1. I just got a new pencil sharpener and I'm obsessed with finding and sharpening every pencil in the house.
  2. I teach first grade.
  3. I want to win the lottery and buy a huge house near Mendocino and get some livestock :)
  4. My second child is 'hecho en mexico'.
  5. I love watching documentaries.
  6. I need to buy new sneakers.
  7. My favorite stop in LA is in Santa Monica on Main St. If you park near Ocean Park you can hit PEET's, MoCA, St. Matthew's Thrift + Ritual Adornments.
Now, who to tag?
I tag...... Laura, Amanda, Fred and my friends who need to start blogging: Andrea, Heather, Keegan + Jenny. Susan, you too if you read this. I don't know if anyone will produce a random seven, but in the spirit of bloggy fun, there you go :)

Keeg, can you make this?


You can use a sewing machine! I have the book with the pattern. I bet you can make something better... xxoo <--- That is a challenge to my friend, K. She doesn't have a blog yet (or does she?) so I can't link her. I love listening to the Creative Mom Podcast because it is great homework. As an art major in college, I feel like I should be doing my art and without Creative Mom's nudge or ideas to do something I find weeks, months going by and I make nothing... It's really fun. I think my dear friend would love to listen to episode 45 of CMP! My friend is a quilter and it has great ideas to have stuff around to busy little fingers so you can work on your own stuff!! Oh, really........ Yes, quite!

Luvin' Mosaics!
