Autumn Challenge

Apple cider, autumn camping trips, bonfires, beautifully coloured trees, crisp breezes and chilly evenings ...yes, it's AUTUMN! The Trans-Canada Etsy Team is featuring an Autumn Challenge for it's create something that fits in with the theme of autumn.

For my entry, I submitted a journal hand-engraved with an oak leaf; it has 320 pages of beautiful treeless banana paper. It's now listed on my Etsy shop.

Ten random things about me...

I was tagged by Sharon at Secret Leaves Paperworks to share 10 random facts about myself. Here we go:
1. The effervescent smell of spit in the air after someone sneezes makes me want to hurl.

2. I refuse to walk barefoot on floors, no matter how clean they are, as I hate the idea of getting anything on my feet.

3. I'm not a big fan of chocolate.

4. I cringe at needles going into skin, and yet could watch a corpse being dissected without wincing.

5. I’m *extremely* introverted (even though I fool most people that I meet).

6. I loathe talking on the phone – if it rings I usually hope hubby will get it or let it go to voicemail.

7. I correct other people’s grammar in their emails before replying to them. (Only for my peace of mind.) Yup. I’m anal-retentive about almost everything.

8. I spent most of my childhood up in a tree with my nose in a book.

9. I am addicted to lists, hubby’s kisses, books, plain steamed rice, cat's paws, and really good tea.

10. I talk to my cats far too much.

I won’t tag anyone, but feel free to join in the fun!
