Hello Fellow Bloggers!

I am finally getting around to posting the sweet blog award given to me by 2 dear bloggers.

Sincere thanks goes out to Tracey @ Garden of Grace & Charlotte @ A Little Bit of Detail! These crafters are both extremely talented & caring. If you have not visited their blogs, please do so. You will be inspired!

Part of receiving these awards includes 3 things:
1)thanking those who gave it to you
2)paying it forward to 8 friends
3)sharing 7 things about yourself

I will of course share it & even tell some things but when I share it I will not expect anything in return. As a recipient, you can share it with as many blog friends as you would like. If you want to share 7 things please feel free to do so but if not, it is okay with me.
As happy and flattered as I am to receive these awards I want those whom I share it with to enjoy it also without feeling obligated to follow the "rules". I don't know who made up the rules and I am not upset about them. I just like the idea of giving freely. I hope this does not offend anyone, it is not my intention.

Here are my 8 blog friends, they are all different but creative, artful souls who create art from the heart:

Nikki @ Bond Girl Creations
Stephanie @ Always Crafting
Janet @ Life Full of Sunflowers
Kelly @ Snipits of Kelly
Kim @ My Crafting Creations
Vivi @ Vivi En Papel
Pinkladibug @ Pinkladibug
PVCreations 2010 @ PVCreations 2010

My 7 Things:(Warning...some may have been shared before)
1- I am bilingual
2- I have the useless "talent" of tying a cherry stem into a knot with my tongue.
3- I have an extreme fear of falling from high places but no fear of heights or flying.
4- I once sang for a gubernatorial candidate.
5- I have the fear of public speaking yet held several jobs that required it and YES I did it.
6- I was in 4 singing groups.
7- I still expect to learn how to play the piano someday. It is on my bucket list.

Again, thank you to those who bestowed the lovely award, it means so much. Thanks to all my followers & guests.
You make this fun and worthwhile.
As always...crafty best wishes!
