Tag…I’m It Again!

This game of tag has been going around in blog land and I’m it again.  I was tagged by two amazing bloggers:  Connie of Hot Flashn Craftn and Jill of I Know The Plans I Have For You.  Connie has a great sense of humore along with wonderful projects that she shares. Jill is a creative dynamo (she’s in the finals of American Crafter).  You should check out both of their blogs if you haven’t already.

I apologize to these two amazing ladies because I am late in playing along.  They both tagged me a week or two ago and with trying to get my taxes done along with my two oldest being home, I just didn’t get around to playing along. Anyway, this amazing way is a great way to get to know fellow bloggers a bit better.

Here are the rules of this little blogging game:

1. You must post the rules!
2. Answer the 11 questions the tagger posted for you and then create 11 new questions to ask the people you’ve tagged.
3. Tag 11 bloggers and link them in your post.
4. Let them know you’ve tagged them.

I am going to do these things in a different order.  I would like to tag my 11 bloggers first.  I have chosen to tag bloggers who leave great comments but have a smaller following  (it was hard to choose because I have more than 11 I would have liked to tag).  I’d like everyone to get a chance to meet these incredible ladies. Here you go.

1.  Kate from A Creative Cookie
2.  Claire from A Little Something in the Meantime
3.  Rebekah from Accidentally Wonderful
