Fill in the Blanks

Yesterday DebR was a guest blogger on Create a Connection. She had a fill-in-the-blanks thingie to help everyone get acquainted. Since I never pass up a quiz or a meme here are my answers....

Fill in the blanks to each of these statements - it's as simple as that! These don't have to be one-word responses. Use as few or as many words as you need to fill each blank, in order to tell your story. My responses are in italics.

1. I have never wanted to fly a plane; but I've always thought I might like to try hang gliding!! In fact, I came very close back in the 80's when several of my friends were into that sport.

2. When I was 18years old, I believed I was grown up and an adult. Now at 63 I realize I'm still not grown up or an adult!! But that's half the fun and I wouldn't change it for anything!

3. If I was my own best friend, what I would enjoy the most about spending time with Me would be doing lots of fun things together in the studio, laughing and chatting all the time; while what I'd find the most irritating would be my constant chattering! I never know when to shut up!!

4. If the story of my life up to this point was being published tomorrow, it would be titled "Just Bee-cause"....what else!! and it would be dedicated to HB because he puts up with me and all my craziness!!

5. When my time on Earth is over, and the people who loved me are remembering me, it would please me if they said Janet was a good-hearted person, always helpful and encouraging.


I just wanted to thank everyone for all the helpful suggestions yesterday....and to tell you that this collage was done on a stretched canvas that I had laying around the studio. It had been painted on, then covered over with some beige and muted greens because I didn't like the original idea. I think I will try using something with a stiffer surface the next time!

Here is my Simply Create project for's just some things I pasted in a small journal....

Don't forget to check my other blog for my daily photos. I usually post them in the afternoon. The link is at the top of the right sidebar.


morning pages - check
the 5 rites - check
treadmill - check 1.5 miles
weights - not today


  1. Hang Gliding..! you are braver than me. It looks life fun but...!
    Now flying appeals to me, but I love to fly, it means I'm going somewhere fun, usually.
    The journal page is great. I like the subject matter and the muted colours you chose.

  2. That was supposed to say
    'looks LIKE fun'
    I can spell, but I can't type...LOL

  3. Like your journal page... do Morning pages?? Me too most days....what are the 5 rites?

  4. I have always thought it would be fun to parachute out of a plane but have never had the opportunity to try it and would probably have to be pushed at least the first time. and HB is truly a good man, I've heard your chatter---just kidding, it's a part of you that I love.

  5. Meme's are so much fun and I always think your answers are so right on. I'd like to fly, but you would (am I going to hate myself for saying this in the morning?!) Never get me to jump out of a plane for fun!

  6. You know Janet. I wanted to hang glide too. I went several times to a mountain in NC where they jumped off with their gliders, it was like a diving board on the side of the mountain. Actually, there was this really good looking guy there......well, you know. I have pictures somewhere. Anyhow, I never did it. Wasn't scared, just couldn't afford the equipment. Woulda been my luck some farmer would have shot me thinking I was a big hawk after his chickens! I did do some rapelling tho. Mucho fun, and mucho scary!
