Honored beyond words and a gift for my followers~

I have been terrible about keeping things up to date lately and I do apologize for that. So, to fix that, I am posting some stuff I really should have posted a while ago.

I have been blessed with 3 wonderful blog awards in the past month and just haven't posted them. So, today I am. First, I would like to say how honored I am by these awards. When I started this blog, I never thought I would have readers, much less followers and people who actually looked at my creations and read my posts. I am honored by these awards and touched that these wonderful ladies have shared these awards with me.

Thank you so much ladies!

This first award is from my friend Ginny at My5Bratz Creations

You just have to check out Ginny's blog when you have a chance. Not only is she wonderfully talented, but she is super sweet and has the guts to post pics of her usually messy desk on a regular basis. I am suppose to tell 5 things about myself - keep reading, I'll get there.

This second award is from my friend Michelle over at Shellpole's snippets

This third award is from Melina at Crafty Scrapper.
I just recently discovered Melina's blog. Melina has a wonderful CAS style that I truly enjoy and have drawn inspiration from lately. Stop by her blog when you can - you will enjoy her great creations.

With this award I am suppose to share 7 things about me.

So, I am going to be a slight slug and share 7 things and hope that the first 5 things count for the first award too! Sneaky huh?

1 - I have 2 dogs of my own (Pongo and Ebony - named by Shane) and Andrew's dog, Brutus. Pongo we saved from being sent to the pound, Ebony we adopted when she was a puppy and Brutus is my constant companion and the most adorable chihuahua ever.

2 - I hate shopping. Unless I am shopping for stamps and goodies. I truly have to be in the mood to shop and prefer to get what I need and be done.

3 - I have a fear of heights.

4 - I dislike spiders, but don't mind snakes.

5 - I almost quit stamping before I every really got started. My first demo had a style that just didn't work for me.

6 - I am a homebody. Andrew says I need to get out more.

7 - I try to stamp everyday, but haven't been accomplishing that lately.

Now, I am suppose to pass these on to other bloggers. I always have a tough time picking who to share these awards with because there are so many wonderful blogs out there that I just love.

So, these awards are for my followers. And if you aren't a follower and would like one or all of these awards, please feel free to help yourself.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful day filled with all that your heart desires!
