Blog Awards!

Wow!  Was I surprised to get two sweet notes in my email box a few days ago directing me to two wonderful ladies blogs that bestowed upon me my first two blog awards.  No how fun is that, never had an award and now I have two in one day!  I hope you will stop by and visit these ladies, their links are below the award they gave me.  I feel honored to received them.  Only a few months ago, I was wondering if I would ever even have a visitor to my blog.  "Am I writing this for any reason other than my own entertainment?  Or will people really read it?"  Well the awards tell me that there are really people out there stopping by but I still believe it is a bit for my own entertainment :)  Stop by later tonight and I will post one of my new projects.
The "Stinkin Cute" award came from Raina at  She has a great blog and I love her devotionals that she posts.  To receive this award I was asked to post 7 things about myself and then pay it forward to 7 other bloggers to receive this award also.  So here goes:
7 Things about me:

1. Jesus is my one and only Savior
2. I am blessed with a wonderful husband of 22 years
3. I have been blessed with 2 beautiful daughters
4. I am an artist and art educator
5. I love to work out (I get high from God's love and running:)
6. I live in the country and LOVE it!
7. I have been scrapbooking and quilting for about 10 years and making cards for about 4 months.

So the "Stinkin' Cute" awards go to: (please stop by and visit them.  They might not all be crafters/artists, but they bless me with their wonderful writing)

This blog award came from Linda over at  She is a friend from the Cricut Message board and she has a great blog.  The rules for her award were the same.  Thank the awarder, lsit 7 things about yourself (not listing them again) and then award it to seven other bloggers.  So I am awarding the following bloggers the "Irresistibly Sweet" award:

I hope you will stop by and visit these blogs.  They are inspiration for me when I really need it.  Some are long time bloggers and some are newbies but all are fun, energetic and inspirational!  Tell them I said HI!
