10 Things You Didn't Know About Tracey Taylor


1.   My husband and I designed and contracted ourselves the building of our house.  I remember gyprocking a wall after work one night, without the proper tools and little daylight, so it would be ready for the insulation guys the next morning.  What an amazing learning experience the whole process was... on many levels.

2.  I have never coloured my hair though the older I get the more appealing it seems.

3.  My favourite movie of all time is Dirty Dancing.  I still wish I could dance whenever I watch it.
 
4.  I'm not a huge fan of chocolate unless it is cooked in something like brownies or cookies.  I can't remember the last time I ate a whole chocolate bar. 


5.  I love to cook.  In fact, cooking is as much of a hobby for me as scrapbooking.  When we built our house it HAD to have a cold room so I had a place to store all my pickles and preserves. 

6.  Is there an opposite to the term "movie buff"?  If there is, than it would describe me. There is no real reason or conscious decision to be this way and  I always enjoy a movie when I take the time to watch one.  There just seem to be so many other things to do that TV and movies get forgotten.  Did I mention I'm not really into popcorn?  Maybe that's part of it!

7.  Just so you all don't think I'm completely backwards with the whole chocolate and popcorn thing, I LOVE sweets.  We have dessert of some kind with every meal.  See number five.  I am always baking!

8.  I just realized this month that my snowsuit is about 20 years old and 4 inches too short. How and when did that happen? 

9.  I absolutely LOVE the smell of line-dried sheets.  I wish there was some way I could bottle that smell!

And finally,



the secret of all secrets....




10.  I always said I would NEVER scrapbook.  Something about cutting apart my photos just seemed so wrong and foreign to me.  I am really happy to admit I was wrong.  I even cut apart the odd photograph now and again, but that's really only because everything is digital now so I can print a new one if ever I want to.  So I guess that means I'm still not as rebellious as all that!


I could not be more thrilled to have the opportunity to work for this wonderful company and along side such a talented group of ladies.  I have also updated my blog today with my submission pieces so you check out why I was selected to be part of the Design Team for Imaginisce.
Please come back to the Imaginisce blog often to see what we’re working on.  There is always something fun and inspirational going on around here.

Tigerberry said...

Tracey, Don't do it! If your hair turns grey, you earned it! I always thought trying to contract out building your own home would give one grey hair. Maybe your snow outfit is too short because all that good food you are making is sending you upward instead of outward. Enjoy scrapping.

Vicki and Don said...
