Gretchen  tagged me with this Honest Scrap post. The idea is to reveal 10 honest things about yourself that you haven't blogged about and list 5 addictions. Then tag 5 friends. I was tagged a couple of months ago with something similar so it's been a brain strain trying to come up with something new that you may not know about me that I'm willing to share :)

5 Addictions I'm willing to admit. :)
1. Coffee
2. E-mail/internet/blogging
3. Fabric acquisition
4. Ice cream
5. Reading 

10 Things You May Not Know About Me
1. I have great handwriting. My Dad made me practice for 6 weeks after I earned a poor grade in handwriting.
2. I attended 12 years of school in the same school building. It was a Catholic school, grades 1 through12. There were 68 people in my high school graduating class.
3. I love to bake especially cookies and loaf breads.
4. I love to take walks through my neighborhood and parks. Being outdoors and walking helps center me.
5. I don't watch mainstream TV. The boys in my life control the remote. I abdicated with a book and sewing machine. Lots of Food Network shows at my house.
6. At 30, I figured I was never going to get married. Gave up to enjoy the single life. Met my husband two weeks later. Have been happily married for 21 years.
7. I played the violin for 5 years in grade school. 
8. I love stationary, note cards and almost anything at an office supply store.
9. I collected Cabbage Patch Dolls for me and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle things for my son when he was little. We both still have a soft spot for TMNT.
10. I had pen pals when I was growing up. I remember one in Missouri, one in Canada and even one in Russia. I did meet one of them. She came on a Greyhound bus from Illinois while we were in college.

Ok. I tag Melisa, Lori, Pat, , Casey, Amanda

Hi Becky,
I enjoyed reading your list of things. I really enjoy office supplies, too. Do you think that it has something to do with working in schools? Maybe there is still hope for my unmarried daughter (age 35) and my unmarried son (age 32)!

Have you seen the Bread Making Artisan cookbook? I am in LOVE! The beignets in there were so much fun. We had to make them TWICE to see if we liked them as well the 2nd time as the first! YUP!
