I've been tagged by Julie at Mutch to Stamp

This is another little tag game to play to share some info about yourself.

Four place I have worked;

1. Full time babysitting for a family when I was just out of school. I took care of 4 children ...they were great kids. I was very young though and was pretty new to cooking...I had to make them and the parents dinner and begin supper. I was petrified!! But no one complained about the food....and no one

2. Waitress and short order cook.

3. I almost forgot.... I also sold Fuller Brush for awhile.

4. Self employed craft business for approx 13 yrs. This was lots of work but also a lot of fun ...participating in Craft shows in Saskatchewan...and selling at a number of different places in the province. Toward the last few years imports seemed to take over a lot of the market. Now I just do it for a hobby ....(a little pin money or rather I should say "stamp money"

Four places I have lived;

I've lived in Melville Saskatchewan all my life....It is a great place to live!!

Four places I have been on vacation.

1. Though out British Columbia.

2. The Black Hills...through out North and South Dakota....Mount Rushmore

3. Winnipeg Manitoba......Alberta -Edmonton and Calgary

4. Numerous National and Provincial Parks in Saskatchewan and Manitoba.

Four of my favorite foods;

1. Barbecued Steak

2. Ice Cream

3. Chocolate

4. Chinese Food.

Four places I would rather be right now;... Although I am quite happy right here.

1. Spending time with any of my family.

2. Shopping with an unlimited supply of money.

3. On holidays with my hubby (again an unlimited supply of money would be appreciated here

4. Stamping

Instead of tagging anyone specific I am tagging anyone who would like to play.
