(Behind the Scenes) 5 Questions


Hello friends! Happiest Wednesday. 

This is the last week of Behind the Scenes. It's been an awesome journey. Xanthe and I poured it all into the class.... Loads of inspiration and practical blogging tips. It's been quite the ride.

If you are interested in joining us for Round 2, we'd love to have you. Registration opena on August 1st. Pop by the site and get on our list if you'd like us to email you when registration is officially open. 

This week, in BTS, we are having a 5 Question linkup party..... 

Here is my response.

1. What makes you happy?….. in 5 words or less….?

Family, Ben, walks, making art

4. What is your favourite movie, book or both?

Oh my, movie.....  that's tough. I think I would say The Notebook stayed with me the longest. I remember sobbing in the theater..... and then thinking about it long after. 'sigh' 

As for book, I have to say, The Help... the audio version was incredible.... LOVED so much.

2. Which talent would you most like to have?

I would love to be able to draw....  you know the kind of artist that just instictively let's the pencil flow onto the page making beautiful art. Yes please. 

3. Which words or phrases do you overuse most?

Oh no. Confession time...  Definitely in my family life... 'give me strength!' In fact, Bryce's sweet girlfriend pointed that out to me the other day.

Oh and in Behind the Scenes I noticed that I say 'it's good' repeatedly in the video conversations with Xanthe. 

5. If you could go anywhere in the world for a creative retreat where might it be? 

Mexico, for sure. Myriam has been sending me links to the most amazing resorts... I'm talking to die for....  Of course my heart will always love California.... I also want to visit Europe and Hawaii...... and, and...and... :)

That's it for me.... how 'bout you? Do tell!

Love reading your answers to the questions. I would also love to see some of those exotic links that Miriam is sending you:)
About... "It's good"... I have been hearing your voice in my head saying that quite often. I just love how it rolls off your tongue! It sounds slightly Yiddish ("s'gud").
Gosh have I loved this journey!

Thank you for sharing, Kim - I have to say, your speaking voice is absolutely lovely and I enjoy listening to it. It's very soothing and friendly! Making art makes my heart sing, too...have a great Wednesday!

Great teacher, and on the question of #3 I think you forgot "Hello My Lovelies. It will be nice to met you in Palm Springs.

I am glad that you mentioned Ben. I forgot my dogs in the make me happy part. Oh no. I was trying to keep it to 5 words. I wish I had that natural born talent to draw as well. Don't you love video:)

Oh, Kim - So happy to be here in the BTS class with you and Xanthe. You've done a fabulous job, it might be the best online course I've taken and I've taken a bunch. Your answers to our "quiz" were delightful and so "you". Isn't it crazy how we think we know so much about who you are? Thanks for all you do!

The notebook has to be one of the best love stories of all time,I was asked to leave the theatre in" Gone with the wind" as a girl for crying too loudly! LOL! Enjoyed my visit and the course.

Hi Kim,
I love this picture of you.. something about it - so warm and your haircut looks really glam :)

I loved The Help too.. I couldn't put it down and cried buckets at various points in the book.
