Meet JoJo of Tina's Terrific Team for #atozchallenge

No, you're not getting the same post again.  On my team I have Jo, from Canada (currently) whom you met on Monday, and I also have my friend and buddy, JoJo who is from Massachusetts.  Clear?  Each minion chose her own format.  JoJo presented this list which describes her.

Only child, engaged to the love of my life, stepmom of 3 awesome kids, dog mom of Pepper and Sagan, Deadhead, photographer, blogger, crafter, cross stitcher, craft supply hoarder, bead addict, glass addict, easily distracted by shiny things, beachcomber, Cape Codder, San Franciscan, Washingtonian, Seattle Seahawks fan, honorary Canadian, offbeat, prefers tie dyes and sweats to actual clothes, sorted into Ravenclaw, day dreamer, collector of: marbles, postcards, celestial stuff, shot glasses, antique beaded purses, glass knick knacks, dragons, fridge magnets, peace signs, beach glass, shells, rocks & bottles, mix tape maker, Vincent D'Onofrio fan, offbeat sense of humour, loves antiquing, believer in Sasquatch, former paralegal now stay at home trucker's wife, on the receiving end of an epic love story, loyal friend and confidant, pluviophile (loves the rain), music lover, day tripper/traveler.  Fave book & movie:  To Kill a Mockingbird. I'm also an empath.

JoJo blogs at Tahoma Beadworks and Photography, and is just crazy enough to be my minion two years in a row.

~Tina, don't I have awesome friends???


P.S My buddies, The Beer Guys from "A Beer For the Shower" are doing a promotion this week where their awesome book is just 99 cents.  So go get yourself some amazingly funny cartoons for a fantastic price!  Click on the animation and you'll get to Amazon.

Hi Tina and JoJo .. I think I got muddled too .. but JoJo from Massachusetts - yay .. now I'm with it.

JoJo's crafting hobby I'd picked up - amazing amount of creative goodies you make up .. huge admiration for anyone in that line of work .. and then you've travelled around the States ...

So pleased you're happily settled with the love of your life and family of pets, kiddo and step-kiddos .. sounds like life is settled .. enjoy the A-Z fellow minion and I'll be seeing you around .. cheers Hilary

Erin L. Funk said...

Hope you enjoy your Blog Blitz Day! :)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Sasquatch, paralegal, and trucker's wife - I've never seen those three things in one sentence before!
JoJo, welcome to Tina's team.
And Tina - you've been BLITZED!!!

Miranda Hardy said...

Looks like you have an awesome team.

Happy Blitz Day!

Hi Jojo,
Congrats,
Great Going.
Keep up the good work.
Good wishes

Carolyn Brown said...

Happy Blitz to you!

DL Hammons said...

Sounds like JoJo's offbeat sense of humor would match mine perfectly! I'll have to pay her a visit.

Gotta say I'm missing (terribly) not being able to do the challenge this year...but on the other hand my book is coming together beautifully.

Oh...did I mention you were being BLITZED? Enjoy! :)

Katie Mills, THE CREEPY QUERY GIRL, is a victim as well if you'd like to drop by.

Maryann Holloway said...

Happy blitz day. Have fun in the A to Z. I joined it for the first time this year so thank you for co-hosting.

Laura Marcella said...

Hi, Tina! Jojo sounds like an awesome addition to your A to Z team!! To Kill a Mockingbird is my favorite book too. :)

Happy Blitz Day!!

Happy reading and writing! from Laura Marcella @ Wavy Lines

Melanie Schulz said...

Thanks for the tip about The Beer Guys. I love their stuff!

Andrea said...

Now THAT is a list!!!

Christine Rains said...

Love that little 8 bit badge there! Happy Blitz Day. :)

Joanne said...

sounds like a fun team. Enjoy life and being blitzed.

Vicki Rocho said...

Happy Blitz Day!!! Good luck on the A-Z challenge. :)

Jo said...

Not here for the Blitz, here for JoJo. Nice to meet you. You sure covered a lot of ground in one sentence. Honorary Canadian? How did you manage that. Love dragons too and am an honorary dragon grandmother to Father Dragon.

Brian Miller said...

hey i am a day dreamer as well...smiles....cool that you have found the love of your life as well....best wishes on the wedding when it gets here....

and hey, looks like you got blitzed....smiles....that is cool...

L. Diane Wolfe said...

JoJo, you sound like a hoot.

Tina, happy Blitz day!

JoJo said...

Wow look at all these wonderful commets!!! Hello and it's great to meet all of you as well! Right now we are getting dumped on with yet another blizzard here in the Cape Cod region...hoping my power stays on.

Jo, my Canadian friends have bestowed me with 'honourary Canadian' because of my use of 'u' in certain words, and my love & knowledge of Canada. I can guarantee you I'm the only car in any parking lot with a Canadian flag on the bumper. lol

Tina thank you so much for featuring me here today. I'll be checking back so long as the power stays on.

Connie Keller said...

Happy Blog Blitz Day!

Enjoyable post. Jojo sounds like a very lovely friend to have. Happy #Blitz day.

Keith Channing said...

... and you can now add Blig Blitzee to the list.

Happy Blog Blitz Day!

Elise Fallson said...

JoJo good to meet you. I'm more of a soleilophile myself but I love humor and my daughter collects dragons too! Sounds like you and the folks on Tina's team are going to have a blast for A-Z. I'll be hanging out on the sidelines this year, but I'm hoping to jump back into the challenge next year. Oh, and my daughter collects dragons too!

Zan Marie said...

Happy Blitz Day, Tina! Life *is* good!

Abs said...

Happy Blitz Day!!! I think your friend JoJo and I would get along great, I enjoy a lot of the same things she listed :)

Sarah Ahiers said...

Woo! Happy Blitz Day!

I am also a fan of sweats over actual clothes. I used to love jeans but man, once you go comfy clothes, you never go back

Charmaine Clancy said...

Sounds like you've got a good team, all ready for the zombie apoco... oh wait, I mean all ready for the A-Z.

Happy Blitz

bemuzin.com said...

I'm going to overlook that Seattle Seahawks fan remark in favor of all those other compelling interests you espouse. Surely we won't let the football rivalry come between us when we can be oohing and awwing over shiny objects together! Look forward to reading your blog.

Kelly Hashway said...

Very cool that JoJo is an empath.

Happy blitz day!

Marcia said...

I'm amazed at those who do the A-Z challenge. Enjoy!

Trisha F said...

Hi there, just stopping by for the Blitz! Happy Blitz day! :) And I am doing the A to Z as well, and am a bit nervous about it, but I'm pretty sure I can pull it together long enough to get through that month. :P

2unpublishedgirls.com said...

Hi! I love the list idea. Funny and great way to introduce someone. I wonder if it would work for an author bio...

Happy Blitz Day!

Lori said...

I'm also a craft supply hoarder (paper crafting, lol), and easily distracted by shiny things! Happy Blitz day, from Lori at http://www.myjourneysthroughlife.com

Tina, you sure seem to have a great team going for the #atozchallenge. I joined this year for the first time, how cool to read a little about your team and so far your Jo's. lol Happy Blitz Day :)

JoJo the empath, congrats on being engaged and for being on the receiving end of an epic love story, woot!

Marci Koski said...

The theme reveal and A to Z Chats on twitter have already been a lot of fun, and I can't believe how many fantastic bloggers I've met already! And now you're another one! :) Oh - AND HAPPY BLITZ DAY!

Cheers, marci from Fuzzy Undertones (marcilicious.com)

Michael Di Gesu said...

Cool,... You have quite the team Tina! CONGRATS... AND HAPPY BLITZ DAY!!!!!!!!

Jeff Chapman said...

Happy blitz day! Looking forward to your AtoZ posts.

Susan Flett Swiderski said...

Jo Jo sounds so so like... me! Okay, so she sounds like a much younger version of me. Picky, picky, picky.

Good luck to all you folks who will be participating in the A-Z. I'll be sitting the month out again this year. Maybe next time...

Oh yeah... Happy Blitz Day! Enjoy.

It's good to know they are different people. I thought maybe one person with two blogs or multiples, and double the minion duty. :O) j/k

Happy Blitz Day!

The Beer Guys have some great animation!

Happy Blitz Day!

Silvia Villalobos said...

Al Diaz said...

You definitively have an awesome team and I'm sure you'll rock in the A to Z Challenge. Good luck and happy blitz day!

#1Nana said...

A to Z sounded like a fun thing to do way back at the beginning of the year when I signed up. Now that it is almost April (and I don't have a theme), I'm worried about coming up with something interesting to write every day. I haven't even gotten around to putting the little sidebar thing on my blog. Thanks for making it easy for me to copy yours!

Happy Blitz Day and good luck with your A-Z responsibilities!

DAVID WALSTON said...

Thanks for leading with the difference between JO and JOJO.:-)

Yay Blog Blitz!!
Empaths rule!
And "To Kill a Mockingbird" is my favorite book of all time. I'm seeing a pattern here...

Best to you!

Tiana Smith said...

I could never do the A to Z challenge. I admire you guys! Good luck!

Hi Tina,
I am hooked after reading the about page, so much fun and sassy. My favorite 'Star trek' and leaving a sleeve inside a book for a book mark. I do it too.
Congrats you have been Blitzed!!

Happy Blitz Day!!!

klahanie said...

Hi Tina,

I notice a number of the blogger sheep are making no mention of your actual posting. Only referring to the Blog Blitz. And people wonder why I get aggravated! Sorry about the rant, but it needs to be said.

I know all those fine folks on your team. JoJo is one very nice and artistic lady. All your friends are awesome, dear Tina.

Gary :)

Guilie Castillo said...

Oh, I know JoJo--found her blog about a month ago via my dog blog, and *love* it & her. She's an amazing photographer, too!

Thanks for sharing, Tina :) Happy blitz day!

VR Barkowski said...

Happy Blitz Day, Tina!

Great to meet both you and JoJo, although I am confused. I live in Massachusetts now, but I lived in the Puget Sound for many years (JoJo has Mt. Ranier as her blog header), and I'm from Northern California and lived in in the East Bay including Berkeley for a lot of years (Jojo has posts about Berkeley and San Francisco).

Clearly Jojo and I should have crossed past by now. :)

Lynda Dietz said...

Happy Blitz Day!

I also collect marbles, starting with the stash I got at three years old. I even named some of my marbles and made up adventures for them as a kid. As an adult, I just like their pretty designs, materials, and sizes. One of my little clear marbles from the 30-year-old set rolled under a locked door at the day school this summer, and I was so happy when the cleaning lady found it for me and left it taped to my note in the office the next day.

Hey Tina! Color me a tad bit late, but Happy Belated Blog Blitz day to you!! I bet you weren't expecting this! :D Lily
