It's an award ...

I would like to thank Jessica from Chick-n-Scrap for gifting me this lovely blog award. She received it herself (which to me is no surprise) & was so sweet to pass it on to me & many other lovelies. If you don't know her already, you are missing out. You have got to give her a visit. You will be glad you did. Her infectious, crafty spirit comes through with every creation she shares. This award goes right back @ her! She is not only versatile but incredibly inspirational.

There are some rules & guidelines to receiving this award & they are:

*Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy.

*Include a link to their blog. That’s also common courtesy — if you can figure out how to do it.

*Next, select up to 16 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly.
*Nominate them for the Versatile Blogger Award by telling them about the award on their blog & including a link to their site on your blog for others to see how versatile they really are.
*Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.

Now I have the honor of passing it on to other wonderful bloggers so in no particular order here they are:
Nikki from: Bond Girl Creations
Janet from: Life Full of Sunflowers
Monica from: Unique Monique Creating
Amy E from: Scrap This, Save That
Kelly from: You and Your Big Dreams
Keren from: Free Pretty Things for You
Heather: Busy Martha
Lucy: Love 2 Create
Rexann from: I be circled
Becky from: Shabby Treasures
An'Jenic from: AJ Scrapbooking & Cards
Michelle from: Peanut Butter & Jelly Designs by Michelle
Arin from: A Piece of Life's Pie
Alisha from:
My Crafty Ways
Alisha from: Crafty Brooklyn Army Wife

Those were the recipients I chose. I know in my heart that ALL crafty bloggers put their heart & soul into their art and I really feel so many more are deserving of this blog award. So I propose you all help me pay it forward & pass this on.

Now for my 7 things about me (brace yourselves):
1-I am extremely shy. I do believe it is one of the reasons I only have one video on my you tube channel & it is not even me...it's my youngest daughter.
2-I am fluent in Spanish.
3-I have lived in 5 states.
4-I'm a former Budweiser marketing model (from waaay baaack in the 80's-hey...no laughing) AND yes...even with shyness-don't ask!
5-At one time as a teenager I was in 4 different singing groups as a 1st soprano in my church.
6-I'm an Air Force Wife.
7-I live in Western New York like my blog buddy Jessica who gifted me this lovely award. We hope to get together sometime soon.

Thank you everyone for following my blog & being so supportive.
Crafty best wishes to you all!
