Ten on tuesday!

I personally love ways to connect to other blogs and get mine out there, and today I found a new weekly feature you can look forward to so here's my TEN ON TUESDAY!

1. Of your current hobbies, which would you choose to spend more time, money, and effort on? Why?
I would probably choose sewing whether it be quilting or making clothes, because I hope to complete my current short term dream of yearly making over a hundred items of children's clothes and pick a different orphanage and country to bless them with these items, and right now I am finding it very hard to find time, money et cetra to do this.

2. List the two other hobbies/habitual activies (not chores) besides the one listed above that you regularly do now and didn’t choose in question one.
Probably scrapbooking and reading.

3. Why are you spending time on the above two hobbies/habitual activies at all if you really wanted to spend your time on the first one you chose?  …or to put it another way, what are these two hobbies/habitual activities fullfilling that the first one doesn’t if you don’t want to put all your effort into the first hobby?
For me the resources are there and scrapbooking is usually a social events with a couple friends and my sister.

4. Ready John 3:16 in the bible… In what way does this passage affect you?  What are your feelings towards these words, positively or negatively?
For me it is comforting, that we are going to live forever with our savior, that he is there for us no matter what we do. We could do something completely horrible and yet he will forgive us if we ask for it, (though we still shouldn't do anything and yet live a godly life).

5. M&M’s: nuts, no nuts, or peanut butter?
Nuts, hands down the best M&M's.

6. Putting away the feeling of pride being a bad thing; what secretly/openly are you proud about yourself?
That I am the first one in my family to go and get a post-secondary education and degree (aside from my step-dad's family), my older cousins either never went or went one year and decided it wasn't for them, and my aunts and uncles, and parents never went (actually my mom went back to school when I was younger).

7. Given one room in the house to do with what you want, not changing the actual size of the room and with all the money you would need, what would you do, and be specific?  (this can range from bouncy floor,walls & ceilings; to hard wood floor with wood paneling and purple ceiling with a chair; to nothing)
First off I would make an office/ craft room. First off would take out the current window replacing it with picture window with bay seating, with tons of storage undernieth it. Lots of shelving, and a big old desk used for my computer, scrapbooking, and sewing, the floors would be hardwood, and everything would be painted in an antique-y off white to make the room look old, in one corner a huge comfy chair then a old wooden desk chair to complete the look, with french doors.

8. What’s the next movie you’re going to see?  Not what you’d LIKE to GO see, but the next movie you realistically are going to watch. 
Honestly I don't know, but I did go to a movie last night to see Percy Jackson and the Olympians.

9. Use the keyboard only and make your best smiley/funny/cool face –> like this! 8^)

10. What makes you cry? What makes you pray? What makes you laugh?
Cry-- Almost anything, I'm an overemotional girl, what can I say!
Pray-- Life right now, there is so much going on inside me, around me, and everywhere that sometime I can't fix, so I pray, which is a big thing for me since it's been the one thing I have struggled with in the past.
Laugh-- My siblings, my funny group of grade nine girls, and there prayer requests, for me, like one night we were doing popcorn prayer when one of my girls prayed that me and a certain boy would get together and date, which caused me to laugh during our prayer time. And Finally my friends, make me laugh with the things we do and say.
