I've Been Tagged!.....

Sweet Erin over at Things and Stuff and Sweet Sarah over at Joy For The Journey tagged me to play the name game so here it goes! You are supposed take your middle name and write a word/fact that helps describes you for each letter. Be prepared to be here awhile. My middle name is Micheline.

M- Micheline is my namesake. She was a young girl in France during WWII. My grandfather stayed with her family while he was stationed there for the war. I was given her name. My Mom is working on getting some photos and letters from her for me.

I- I still can't whistle.

C- Creative My mom says I started drawing very early and when I was two I drew a perfectly recognizable whale blowing water out of it's blowhole. James drew a duck for me yesterday:)

H- Homemaker I'm no June Cleaver, but I am so grateful to stay home with the boys.

E- Eat I do it to sooth my soul, to stuff my emotions down and I hide behind the resulting fat.

L- Love My love for my family is infinite.

I- Inspired Inspired by all of you and the wonderful art you share. The lives you share.

N- Nurturer I am good in this role.

E- Educator I am still a teacher in my heart:)

1920's bird reprint from my personal collection and an original 1865 bill of sale

This is a sneak peek of my new line of note cards. They will be in the ETSY shop soon and I am really excited about them! And, yes, I did cut that out by hand and all the others. I can only say thank goodness for sharp scissors and Exacto knives! LOL!!

Such a pretty middle name! Mine's Marie-boring!

Anyway, I'd assume you can cancel an Amazon preorder if you wanted. And as for the collage pack, why don't you first make a comment on that post to be entered in the drawing for a free one. Maybe you'll win it so you don't have to buy one! If not, then I'd be happy to sell you one! :)

I agree - a Beautiful name indeed! That card is Gorgeous! I finally doled out the money for a really good pair of scissors that cut close and to the very tip. I LOVE them! I've added your blog to my favs. list so others can find your GREAT site!

Hi Jamie:

I tried to print two of your free little girl pictures (from June 11 and July 17).

I must be doing something wrong because the pictures look blurry. I can see some of the pixels.

Thanks, Darlene

I think cabinet cards are so fascinating too. I have a handful of tin types which I really treasure. They are not my family but I adopted them, shall we say.
I have had Tricia on my favorites for a while now. I think her art is very unique and fun and thoughtful.

Great cards Jamie!! Your middle name is lovely and what a neat story!

Judy said...

Jamie, thanks so much for your amazing comment on my blog - I really appreciated it. I love the namesake name and the story - hope you find out more one day soon.
Happy to teach you to whisle one day - that was so cute!
