-wanna know where my shop name, "minxden" came from?? I give that credit to my hubby! he thought of it, not I! "minx" is the pet name he calls me, and "den" is another name for my came the title, minxden! it just rolls off the tongue!
-I believe chintz is never dead!
-I am scared of spiders, snakes, mice, lightning, but my biggest fear is pitch blackness or the dark.
-I could of been a surgeon (doctor) because I can handle blood and guts just fine! the only reason why I am not is because of the risk of someone dying on my table, I can't handle death, even with strangers.

-In my beginner's knitting class I was in, no one believed me when I told them my last name! (It's Knitter, and the K is silent), I had to show some class mates my drivers license just to prove it! then they all just laughed!
-I have no tolerance for stupidity of the mass public.
-My body has been very steadfast and sturdy so far, only broke my right ankle whilst jogging on a treadmill, and have only 2 small scars, (one on the top of my left shoulder caused by a cat, and a tiny one on my chin caused by a mean bunny rabbit when I was six) wow, both caused by animals, not by injury! oh yeah and I am a surgeon virgin! (no surgeries performed on my body)
-I can pop both of my shoulders in and out of place and not feel any pain!

-I started sewing at the age of 11, my grandma enrolled me and my younger cousin in a summer class together, where I made a pair of shorts and a duffle bag!
-The most precious sewing project I ever did and kept was 7th grade home ec class, my instructor, sister marie kelley helped me with making a pillowcase with french seams, I still have it to this day and the print is the American flags with the first 13 stars on it, That teacher is very dear to me, and learning of her death five years ago by an old classmate tore me apart. That nun was a real neat lady! I know she is very proud of me in heaven, since I dedicated my shop to her (and a few others).
-Me and my 2 girl kitties share the same birth town (In Kansas)

I loved reading all about you- thanks for this! I just have to know more about the chocolate covered crickets... wha????

Minx's Den said...

yeah crickets! they really have no taste at all....just the texture you have to get past, crunchy!! and the chocolate helps you swallow them down, like those nestle crunch bars i guess!
