  1. 1. Someone who knows how to make pizza dough by flipping it up in the air.
    2. Someone who has NO credit card debt.
    3. An artist with her own creative business.
    4. A writer of graphic novels.

    1) Musical (enough so to be on Broadway)

    3) Creative cook/baker
    4) Clothing/costume designer
    5) Published authoress

    • Oh man, I want to be musical toooooooooo!!!! What singer’s voice would you want to steal a la Ursala?πŸ™‚

        Ooooh, good question… From today’s Broadway stars, Maybe Kristen Chenoweth because she’s so stinkin’ versatile… Broadway hits, Gospel hymns, Country rhythms, opera… Lucky girl.
        Although in terms of who has the most golden, easy-to-listen-to voice IN THE WORLD, Judy Garland!

  8. Yes yes and yes to being make out buddies with The James and friends with the vlog brothers. Those both sound amazing!
