Getting to Know Candace

Hi everyone!! It's Candace here to tell you a little more about myself today. 

1. Favorite saying.
"When life gives you lemons, thank God you're from the South, and put 'em in your sweet tea."
This quote may seem silly, but it says a lot about me. I've been going around saying it for years. It speaks about my determination, my pride in being a Southerner, my personal faith, and my love for sweet tea. :)

2. What is the first thing you see to your right?
a few cards that I made this week

3. What do you collect, other than designer paper & card stock?
Dust? LOL
I don't really collect anything, but I do have quite a few Willow Tree angels that people have given me. I love anything with bright colors, cupcakes, or fleur-de-lis stuff (see answer to next question).

4. Favorite sport and/or team to watch.
New Orleans Saints football! 

5. What is your guilty pleasure?
Cupcakes. I love them! I love to bake and cupcakes are my favorite thing to bake.

6. Do you snack when you create?  If so, what is it?
Not usually. Every now and then I will keep some chocolate at my desk, but not often because I'm always scared I'll get something on my card. However, I always have a Coke Zero at my stamp desk with me!

7. If you were a cartoon character, who would you be?
Does a Disney princess count? They always have happy endings!

8. A funny/quirky/odd thing about you...
I've never had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
Two of my toes are grown together.
I can't stand for leftover time to be on the microwave.
I teach English, but I say "y'all" 100 times a day. It's the Southerner in me. 
Oh, that was more than one, wasn't it? I guess I'm kind of quirky. :)

9. When you're not playing with paper, what are you doing?
Teaching - I'm a 7th and 8th grade English teacher. 
Watching a random assortment of TV shows (Army Wives, Drop Dead Diva, Teen Mom, Young & the Restless, Swamp People, and Duck Dynasty). I told you it was random. 
Reading on my Kindle
Sitting on the couch playing on my laptop
Baking something sweet in the kitchen
My life is VERY interesting. ;)

10. Finish this sentence:  "I love everything about..."
Stamping. It's given me some amazing opportunities. I've had the pleasure of serving on several design teams and making amazing friends. Also, it's so special to give someone a handmade card, and I love that!

Here's one of my favorite cards from the past using the  Love Sprouts image

I hope you enjoyed learning a little more about me! :)
