Fingerless gloves! Ok now, those are awesome!! And in purple? Now that is too cool for words. Ok, let's see:

10 things I like about me in no particular order:

1. My sarcastic sense of humor, even though it sometimes gets me in to trouble.

2. My strong sense of conviction. Knowing what is right, what is wrong, and most importantly when to stray from the crowd.

3. The way I can look at a piece of fabric like a painter's canvas, and not be too terribly discouraged when I ruin a project that has taken me all day.

4.My giant scar that reminds me that no one is perfect, life happens, and that life is what we make it.

5. The way I what I want to be with my children, even if I don't always live up to my expectations. It's the drive to be a better mother, despite knowing you will at times fail.

6. My fingers. Not because they are dainty and pretty, but because they are hard working and efficient.

7. My hair that can be grown out and donated to others who can't grow hair of their own.

8. My family. Because they are so very much a part of me.

9. My passion to learn new things, despite the frustration I get at not being able to learn right off the bat.

10. My open heart that is not afraid to love and open up to others. My heart that bleeds for those I love and cries at injustices in this world.

1. My eagerness to learn all the time. 2. My healthy body. 3. My cooking. 4. My friends and family - the ability to surround myself with good people and let the others go. 5. My sense of humor though not everyone would agree 6. My ability to see things from different views 7. That I will try almost anything once 8. That I don't just talk but take action 9. That I face my fears head on 10. That I complete what I start no matter how long it takes me.
