I have never advertised anything here before, but I am SO impressed with Artscow's photobooks that I have to show you this!!

This is an ABC book I made for one of my grand daughters, I am in the process of making them for all my grand kids for Christmas. I just recieved my first book made with LOs I had made this summer and it is SO cool!! Very professional looking! I have loads of ideas for Christmas gifts!! You can even design your front cover and back cover! (They aren't shown in my preview) Anyhow, I have 7 coupon codes left to give away for a 30 page book for $11.99 with free shipping! The coupons expire on 12/09/2008. So here they are if anyone wants to use them...and I guess if you do use one, leave a comment as to which one you used so the next person will know that one is already used? AND before you upload your LOs to print, go and read this post; This is where I got the ABCs idea, and a lot of help on sizes!!!

I've been tagged! Twice!!!

I am playing catch up again!!!! I have been tagged twice; by Jessica and by Magicmaker !!

So here is how it goes:

1. Link your tagger and list these rules on your blog.

2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.

3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.

4. Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog .

So, let’s see…. 7 things about me.

1. I am addicted to flower gardening. I can’t let plants die even if they are getting invasive (like my chocolate mint!) I transplant the mint to our creek bed to give it a chance and have even transplanted volunteer sunflowers from under my birdfeeders!!
2. I have a backyard warfare every summer with grubs which become Japanese beetles so it continues throughout the summer! I hate them and what they do to my plants. So I kill grubs when I find them while digging in the spring, and drown the beetles in soapy water daily during the summer!! I think I will eventually win as each summer there are fewer of them!!!
3. I love photography and have several digital cameras. One that I carry in my purse so that I always have a camera with me. Our friends tease me about it; and I tease back by playing with pics of them in photoshop!!

4. I ride a 07 Harley Davidson Ultra Glide. We did customize it by taking the back box off and had a luggage rack built for it. My DH has one just like it but he kept the back box on his.

My bike

5. My first motorcycle was a HD 350 Sprint. My Dad brought it home when I was 15 and told my sister & I we could ride it when we could kick start it. After a lot of bruises (it kicked back!) we both learned. We had a dirt road about 1 mile long in the river bottom at our farm. Problem was if one of us dropped it we had to wait on Dad to come home from work to help us pick it back up!!!
6. I like to fish & hunt.
7. I have 5 grown children and 5 precious grandchildren. At home still: a 100lb. Black Lab (Boo), a 7lb Pom (Harley), a cat (Harvey) & a Beta named Fish!

WHEW!!! So there are 7 facts about me!
Now; for the 7 people I am tagging!!!
That's it for today!! I am working on some LOs to post, and another freebie:):)
Have a great day!
