What a pleasant surprise I had when I got to my blog this morning....my scrappy friend, Starla left me some love on her blog w/a fun little award- thank you Starla (http://youcouldbewishingonastar.blogspot.com/) !! If you haven't checked out her awesome blog, make sure to do so....she makes amazing cards!! Wait till you see her stamping & coloring : )
Now there are some rules that go along w/this award...
1. Tell (5) things about yourself....one of which must be about crafting
2. Pass it on to (5) bloggers
Here goes.......1.) I am 100% obsessed w/patterned paper!! I feel like a kid at Xmas when I find patterned paper that I like/want/need/buy!! I have 14 containers full of paper-yikes!!! I do tend to use at least 2 or 3 different papers on my cards, so it helps to have soooo much to choose from!! 2.) I love to read...it used to take me 2 days to read a book, now I barely pick one up. I'd rather be making cards!! 3.)We have no children, just our Golden Retriever pup who is now 1yr old & still quite "spirited" (my vets words-lol). 4.) I've only been to a tropical island once on vacation...Jamaica, for our honeymoon it was wonderful...love the beach, the ocean & the hot hot weather!! 5.) I'm afraid of lightning!! Reason this jumped into my head, is we had a heck on a storm last night. When I was younger I was absolutely terrified of it....even at 15yrs old, I would go hide under my parents bed & of course, they would send me back to my own room. We lived on a hill & it seemed to me our house was one of the high points & I of course, knew everything about lightning...don't talk on the phone, don't stand in your kitchen or bathroom due to metal plumbing, safest place is your car.....I could go on-lol. My fear has subsided some...you know you get older & put things in perspective, thank goodness!!!
Now onto giving the award to 5 awesomely creative artist : )
