10 Things You Didn't Know About Heather Leopard

I am so EXCITED, HONORED, ELATED, over the moon HAPPY to be a part of the 2011 Imaginisce Design Team. I can't wait to see all of the FABULOUS creations our loyal followers create with these AMAZING products!  But first, let me tell you 10 little things about me...
1. I married the love of my life (gag, right?) in 2002 in beautiful St. Lucia, West Indies. It was just the two of us. We got engaged there and we were married 3 days later. My day consisted of diving 100' feet underwater that morning and then a beautiful beach wedding that afternoon.

2. When I married my hubby, I gained a wonderful step-son. We went on to have our first daughter in October 2003, 11 months after we wed. Five years later in 2008 we welcomed another sweet baby girl, who's not such a baby anymore...WAH! You will see quite a bit of them in 2011.

3. I have a somewhat dry sense of humor so when you read my posts on my blog, it's meant to be humorous, not snide. Just imagine me with a little grin while you are reading what I have to say. This brings me to the next thing you may or may not know about me...

4. My last name is pronounced in the simplest form - Leopard, like the cat. It's one of the coolest names - EVER! When you're telling all your scrappy friends to follow this AWESOME new design team member's blog, appropriately called The Spotted Leopard, you don't need to try to fancy it up like everyone else does. It's not LEE-O-pard, Leopold or Leonard. I just thought you should know.

5. I love, LoVe, LOVE to Scuba Dive - wreck dives, deep dives, night dives, you name it, I'll do it. I've dove the Blue Hole twice where I went down 130' while nurse sharks circled us. I always take stupid silly self portraits like this one. My most amazing experience was a random encounter with 3 hammerhead sharks, one of which stuck around for an underwater stare-off.

6. I'm loyal and can keep a secret! I expect the same in return. That probably goes hand in hand with the fact that I'm usually quite reserved, sweet and innocent until we get to know each other. After that, I reveal my other side.

7. I am a huge and I mean H.U.G.E. huge Rob Thomas fan. I actually bent the truth in a BIG way to meet him but the payoff was AWESOME! He was quite proud of me for doing what I did and no, I won't put it in writing. ;) I'd show you the photo but I had been flying and wasn't looking my best. ;)


8. My grandma, mom, daughter and I all have a birthmark in the same spot on the same leg. How cool is that? I wonder if it coorelates to the fact that we are the 1st borns, except grandma.
9. I cook, the hubby cleans. It's only fair and actually it's the only way it'll get done because domestic goddess I am not. It works for us.

10. Last but not least, I can twist my tongue into a clover, which according to Google, only a small percentage of people can do.

So now that you know a little more about me, be sure to hop over to my blog to see some of my scrappy creations. Become a follower and leave a comment over there AND here on the Imaginisce blog for a chance to win a great prize!
