So moving on, today's question comes from Monika who wants to know, " hello jo. after seeing last weeks talk tuesday post of someone asked you your favorite blogs i want to have a little bit of fun with you. so if you will play along i have the ten questions before the sun comes up game questions for you. i think this will be fun to see your answers. and thank you so much jo for your challenges and your wonderful blog. i have good time and fun when i visit. 1. favorite movie, 2. favorite food, 3. favorite colors, 4. favorite place to visit, 5. favorite craft tool, 6. favorite stamp company, 7. favorite sound, 8. favorite animal, 9. favorite craft technique, 10. favorite accomplishment?"

  Hello Monika!
Ok this sounds like a lot of fun! This reminds me of those little "get to know you" games that would go around on social media. So YES!! I will play along for you! Ok you ready? Here I go.....

1. My Favorite Movie- Mommie Dearest
2. My Favorite Food- Italian & favorite dish- baked ziti with sausage & meatballs
3. My Favorite Colors- Purple, Pink & Turquoise 
4. My Favorite place to visit- Hands down, Disney World
5. My Favorite Craft tool- My Stampin Up Trimmer
6. My Favorite Stamp Company - aside from my own company 3 Twenty Crafts (which will relaunch soon, I promise), .. Yikes.. I have a few of them actually... so I'll name them all...  in no specific order my favorite stamp companies are: My Creative Time, Stampin Up, Lawn Fawn, Altenew, Mama Elephant, Hero Arts & Sunny Studios (<----new company, check them out here)
7. My Favorite Sound- I have a few of these too... in no specific order my favorite sounds are: my son & daughter's beautiful voices, the ocean waves crashing, birds chirping, and the sound of rain 
8. My favorite animal- I'm a dog lover so realistically a dog but if I could have an owl or a dolphin for a pet, they would be right up there with my dog. :)
9. My Favorite Craft technique- Watercoloring with Masks & stencils
10. My Favorite Accomplishment- Hmm... this is a good one.. and a very easy one... My favorite accomplishment was bringing a couple of beautiful kids into this world and teaching them the way of the Lord but if you were looking for a more concrete answer as in life accomplishments, than my favorite accomplishment is having 3 college degrees under my belt. I was the first person in my entire family to go to college and get a degree so it meant a lot to me. I have an Associates degree in accounting, a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Finance and a Masters degree of Business Administration with a concentration in Global management. And I graduated on the Dean's list with a 3.8 :) The only sad thing is that right after my 2nd year of college, my health started to go down hill and from there it is history. But is it okay... I am very proud of myself that I have put myself through college and have those degrees. That is a huge accomplishment. Whew! Kinda got choked up a minute there just thinking about it all. 

Well Monika I hope you enjoy reading my answers! That was actually kind of fun! I did enjoy playing along with your game, so thank you :) And thank you for writing in and I hope that I hear from you again soon!

Well friends, that is it for today. Please write in with questions you want answered or topics you would like to see talked about during our Tuesdays together :) As you can see from Monika's post, it doesn't always have to be about crafts. You can write in and just ask me anything at all, providing it is appropriate ;) .  I only have 4 more questions left to answer during this segment of my blog so please start writing in and asking those questions! Otherwise this particular segment will not survive and if it goes, it will not be coming back unfortunately. I cannot keep doing the TTT segments if I don't have your participation. So think of something you would like to know and ask Jo!

 Thanks for stopping by and until next time.... Enjoy life's blessings~


  1. I'm happy to get to know more about you, Jo! Thanks for sharing! :o)

  2. If you were to visit our home for Easter we would spend the day playing in my craft room.


  3. Hi Jo, you are the subject of my blog today! I also posted you to my two facebook pages! Have a good day! http://www.chrissandlou.blogspot.com/2016/03/100-give-away.html

  4. It's so fun getting to know more about you, Jo!! The sound of ocean waves is one of my favorites, too :) Easter here would be Mass followed by an Easter brunch including all the things that were given up for Lent :) Have a great day!! Big hugs :)

  5. Wow Jo, I am so impressed with your business degrees and am sorry that you weren't able to really use them fully due to health concerns but you should be proud of yourself anyway. I am sure that you inspired other family members to continue their education as well. I also find that a college degree contributes to a well rounded individual even if you don't use your specific knowledge. Loved learning more about you...especially the non-crafty favorites!

  6. No wire hangars. OMG! My grown children and I still say that today.

  7. Great to hear more about you my friend. I am so glad to hear you are going to relaunch your stamps~yeah~ That's exciting! So fun to read about your accomplishments and a little more about you and your family.
    Easter would first start off with Easter Mass and then a full day at our home enjoying family. (sometimes we go back home) same tradition tho except about 75 relatives would attend~Of course a big Easter meal and our yearly big Easter egg hunt! Would love to have you join us, hehe!
