An Award...for moi?

At the beginning of this busy, busy week, I was award this badge from two fellow bloggers--thanks so much Lisa from Life According to Lisa and Hollie from Momiji's Madness!! They are both talented designers and have blogs that are inspiring to visit.
It has taken me a week to get this all together. Here are the "rules"

  1. Thank the person who nominated you for the award.

  2. Copy the logo and place it on your blog. (Please don't use mine directly)

  3. Link the person's blog who nominated you for this award.

  4. List 7 things about you that people might find interesting.

  5. Nominate 7 Kreativ Bloggers

  6. Post a link to the 7 you nominated.

  7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs to let them know they have been nominated.

Now for 7 things about me:

  1. I started college as a Physics major. (for some reason this surprises people. Not sure if that's good or bad!)

  2. My mother married my boyfriend's dad. So, technically, for a year or so I dated my stepbrother--ewww.

  3. I made a pie on tv.

  4. I'm left-handed.

  5. I like to pull weeds (lucky me--I have a yard full!!)

  6. I am capable of designing, installing, and repairing underground sprinkler systems--but I don't have one!

  7. I really don't like to call people. The phone is not my friend.

Cue the drumroll please...

And now for my 7 nominations. There are so many talented ladies out there that I love to visit. It was hard to choose 7 but I tried to find ones that didn't just get the award, and ones that might have a clue who I am!!

  1. Heather--my upline/neighbor/friend who got me into all this blogging. She probably has this award because she has received many. Technically, I started before her but she has LOTS more followers and is on design teams and everything.
  2. Kristin--she always has pretty things to look at, even though I don't make it there very often. And she got on Lauren Meader's dt!
  3. Caryl--her blog makes me feel at home. I think our styles are similar so it is comfortable for me to visit. Plus, I just love that cat! (and now I took so long posting that I see she got the award too but oh well)
  4. Beth (BR-T)--her style is completely different from mine. I enjoy looking at her designs that push the envelope for me. Reminds me I don't have to be so reserved.
  5. Danni-- Has her own Flutter-by -Wednesday team and just became a Stampin' Up! demo (woo hoo). She also is the one responsible for my 3 column blog and I will be forever grateful. Plus she manages everything while her husband is away for months at a time keeping us all safe.
  6. Rebecca--whose blog I visit quite often. She rocks the Clean And Simple style plus does awesome things with digital "stamping".
  7. Alicia--woman of amazing talent and strength. She took us all through the year when her nearly 5-year-old son lost the battle to cancer in a heart-wrenching yet inspiring series of blog posts. And she's also on Lauren Meader's dt.

That's it! I know you'll read it in, like, 15 seconds and I had to work on this for a couple hours!! Hopefully, you'll enjoy taking a few minutes to visit some of these talented ladies.

Have a great weekend!

Thanks so much for thinking of me. I don't display awards on my blog anymore but I truly appreciate the thought behind it!

Heather said...

Aawww How sweet!!! I do not have this one, and I have not posted an award in a long time so I might just have to do this one for Sunday's Post. If you are serious about becoming an SU Demo call me tomorrow and we will get you signed up!!!! Smile!!!!!!!!!!!

Even I learned a few things about you I did not know, and I know or at least thought I knew that you did not like to call people because I am usually the one to call you, but when we talk it does not seem like you dislike the phone!!! LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for being my good friend/neighbor/SU Downline!!!

Hey! I really enjoyed reading your 7 things! And I thought I had the strange dating story... me and my husband dating a brother & sister at the same time! Went places together, hung out, you name it. Kinda weird. I can't imagine what it would of been like if my mom had married his dad or something.
That would of been just TOO much. lol
Anyway, enjoyed reading it and congrats on getting it twice!! You deserve it!
Havve a great weekend!

Thanks Tasha! I didn't even list my 7 things yesterday so I was able to fix that mistake this morning....what a sweet reminder! I'm like you with the phone--I think I used all my phone time in high school and am just sick of making calls now.

Rebecca said...

Thanks Tasha. I appreciate your kind comments. I'll be back later to check out the other blogs. Always fun to get even more inspiration!

Tasha~'s been too long! I just let life take over sometimes and don't get around to commenting like I should. Plus, my craft room STILL isn't organized! It's getting there though :O)

Thank you so much for thinking of me for this award! You are so sweet, girly :] Hope you are having a wonderful weekend. I wish I could sit here and just stamp all day. Hmm...why not? If school shopping falls through I may just do that!
