Today is the day to meet Astrid.
Astrid has loved being creative since childhood, as you can see from the picture below:
Anyway, to find out a little more about her, here are the answers to Astrid's questions:
What fictional character do you have the biggest crush on?
Mr Darcy without a doubt. I love the book of course, but have also seen several different versions of the film, my favourite being the one with Colin Firth. Let’s face it who would not have a crush on Colin Firth? So reflecting on this question, is the crush on Mr Darcy or more on Colin Firth, well the truth probably is, – a bit of both….. But to be honest, it’s just a crush right, my heart really belongs totally to my wonderful hubby of 40 years.
If you had to move to a state or country besides the one you currently live in, where would you move and why?
That's a no brainer, Australia for sure. My youngest son and lovely grandchildren live there and if I could, I would move tomorrow, not only to be closer to them all, but at my age, I just could really do with a bit more of that wonderful Australian warm weather!
Here you can see them Lucia age 19 month and Arielle newly born on May 15.
Is there anything that you would refuse to do?
Now that is a much harder one to answer as no doubt there are many more than one thing I would refuse to do…but as most of them are unlikely to be asked of me, (like robbing a bank, jumping out of a fast moving car, strangling a child or many of the other things that most sane people would say no to), it was difficult to pick just one. So in the end the one that I came up with, and am regularly asked about is this one: My hubby loves gliding and now has his gliding pilot licence. He keeps asking me to come up with him one day, but so far I have always said no, and I don’t think that will change. I don’t mind flying as such and regularly have to do so, but going up in a glider without any kind of engine, – nope, definitely not for me.
If you had a time machine, what historical figure would you love to see in 21st century life?
Well my answer was going to have been Leonardo Da Vinci, but as Jenny chose him already, I decided to choose someone else, after all we would not want to have the poor man time travel twice, - so I'll go with Joan of Arc
I have always been intrigued by this young girl, who managed single handedly to turn the entire course of the Hundred Year War, because she was convinced she had been given divine instruction to fight for her cause! What amazing strength and courage!! I think she had such determination that she would do wonderful things (and perhaps with less violence) could she live again in our time.
If you had a year off, what would you want to do?
Craft from morning til evening and if I had the money for it, travel (to Australia and other places) and go on a cruise with Tim Holtz and some of my teamies to come along too!!
Well, hope you have enjoyed reading the last of our little birthday quizzes/spotlight and Happy Birthday to Our Creative Corner, may there be many more inspirational years ahead!!
