Guess what? The 2012 Summer Olympics are coming soon and we are so excited! To help get in the spirit of the Olympics and to add a bloggy spin of our own we will be hosting a
6 week Bloggy Olympics!
There will be 17 different blogs participating over
6 weeks and 6 events from June 9th- July 21st.
Each week 3 blogs will share a simple tutorial that you can copy or will get you thinking about that event’s theme. At the end of the week they will host a 3 blog linky party for you to link up your finished event projects. And of course there will be features, giveaways, and fun Olympic stuff!

HERE IS MY OLYMPIC INTERVIEW:
Birthdate: May 29 (A true lady never tells her age, or so my mother has always told me)
Birthplace: "Pepsi"cola, FLORIDA
Hometown: Um-ah-er...I moved to Kansas when I was 3 weeks old. YUUUUP, I am a DORTHY. But then I moved to IOWA where I resided until I graduated college. So maybe I am now a PORK QUEEN. Of course I have now lived in GOOD OLE' MO for over 10 years. So you all can pick!
Residence: Oh you are gonna love this. At least I do every time I get this question...I now live in BS,MO! NO, really! I cannot make this stuff up! It makes me giggle every time!!!
Height: Good question! I have always been 5'10" However, at my annual physical this year the nurse told me I was 5'8" Hmmmm, either she was too short to actually see the numbers or I am shrinking!
Event: Fabric- I am going to rock your socks off! I have kinda decided that fabric is a passion and seeing what kind of creations I can make with it and pushing the out side of the box. This year, I won 2nd place in the Simplicity Pattern Company's Costume Contest. Wanna know what blew them away? I SPRAY PAINTED SATIN!
