tag, you're it!

we've made it to friday! yay!

i've had a busy week. i tell you that as my reason excuse for not following up on jen's, of pen of jen, tag. she is the originator of this tag and it has been fun to see what fellow bloggers have come up with. here's how she describes the tag:

"My challenge to my blog friends is this: write 8 of your blog friends names in a unique way and post them. Then come back over and let me know. You must write the blogger's name that tagged you, then add 7 others. Be creative and if possible use the natural wonders of the world! "

and here's how she spelled out my name. she made it with soap bubbles in tribute to my profile picture. i marvel at how creative she was and i know it couldn't have been easy to do. her words to me in the tag were very nice and i appreciate my name. thanks jen.

i was thrilled to be tagged. i thought it would be fun to come up with some creative way to spell out names. well, it would have been fun if i could have come up with something. my first thought was find something in my house that i have an abundance of and use that. hmm... what do i have a lot of?

there's a lot of dirty clothes in my laundry room. maybe i could use those. naw. i looked over at my kitchen floor and noticed all the dust bunnies (the dog is shedding big time!). naw, no one wants their name spelled out with dust bunnies. hmm. something i have a lot of. the litter box needs to be cleaned. no! we won't even go there. it's obvious i started to get desperate.

then, for some reason, i got the idea of using aerosoal cheese to write out individual letters on crackers. i spent a good amount of time last night doing just that. it was harder than i thought and i didn't like the end result. there wasn't much contrast in color between the cheese and the cracker and it all looked too sloppy to me.

but i didn't have anything else and didn't know what else i was going to post, so i went ahead with it. then, as luck or fate would have it, i wasn't able to post because blogger seemed to be having problems. i finally gave up.

then, as luck or fate would have it (i'm thinking fate at this point), i came across an on-line generator that creatively spits out names or words. i don't think it was what jen had in mind. she wanted us to try to use the natural wonders of the world. the only way my creations fit that description is if we consider the computer a natural wonder of the world. for me, it's close.

jen, you're first. thanks for the tag. i am blessed by you and your blog.

lyndy of fiddle-dee-dee. i am blessed by you and your blog.

ginger of just a thought. i am blessed by you and your blog.

aisha of just mom. i am blessed by you and your blog.

ruth of reign from above. i am blessed by you and your blog.

these were all created with flickr photographs. it's an easy to use generator and once you have typed out the name, you can click on one, or more, of the letters to change them to a different image. and the image fits nicely in your sidebar. i have included the generator as my link of the day.

You are very creative. I will get to this one real soon. I've been tagged for it a few times. I better get busy with this and try and come up with something creative.

I love what you did with my name, but the dust bunnies would have been appropriate in my case!

Ruth said...

Very good! I love the letters you found!

I've been tagged for this twice, now, so I must do it. I wasn't sure what to do, but I think I have an idea. I'll do it in the next couple of days. Thanks for thinking of me!!

Oh no, this is my third tag for this. I have been thinking on this since before my vacation. I have an idea, but I just have to get my act together.
