I've Been Awarded...YAY ME!!!

Maria Elena at

Stopped in to visit my blog and Loved it!!!  I'm so excited!!!

I am a Versatile Blogger!!!

I am proud to be called that.  As I say a lot "I'm a Jack Of All Trades...Master of None" so it fits well.

So here's what I do for the privledge:

1. Thank the blogger who nominated me (DONE)
2. Include a link to their site in the post (DONE)
3. Include the above award image in your post (DONE)
4. Give 7 random facts about yourself...
5. Nominate 15 other bloggers for the award...or like 5...but they are a great 5!
6. When nominating include a link to their site...will do
7. Let other bloggers know they have been nominated...absolutely!

Sooo...I have to tell you 7 random facts about myself...hmmm
  • I am a mom of 3...two boys and one girl...in that order.  They are often my reason for crafting.
  • I live away from my family...it can be a drag, or a blessing...it depends on the day.  I do miss them and my sister and I text our projects all the time.
  • Speaking of my sister...she has also been nominated for this award over at The Concrete Cottage.  We're both bloggers.  We're both crafty freaks.  She's often my inspiration.  I C.A.S.E from her as much or more as I do anyone else. 
  • I have to read to go to sleep.  It's a blessing and a curse.  I read lots of books, mostly Christian fiction, but when you're away from home it can be a pain at times.  Thankfully my smart phone helps in that department now.  Kindle for iPhone is a wonderful thing!
  • I may not have been born an Okie, but it is in my blood.  I am southern through and through!!!  I love the history, the mentality, the dialect, the antiques!!!  It's all awesome!
  • I love going to the cigar shop with my husband.  I love to listen to the guys talk.  I don't like the way I smell when I walk out, but the conversation is worth it!!!
  • I love to laugh.  Laughing is the best thing ever!!!  My mom calls me her giggle box.  Happiness is wonderful.  I don't laugh like I did when I was a kid, but do love those belly laughs!!! 

Ok, so now I must choose someone to nominate...hmmm!!!

As a new blogger myself I checked each of these ladies out before nominating them.  Each one inspired me in a different way.  I wouldn't have nominated them if they hadn't.  Keep up the good work ladies...one inspiration at a time.  And have fun posting!!!


  1. Thank you SO much for your kind words and for nominating me for this award! I am so honored! I am looking forward to spreading the cheer. Thanks again for sending a big smile my way :)

  2. Thank you for nominating me for this versatile blogger award. I'm beyond excited! This truly made my day! :)

  3. You're very welcome!!! I was just as excited so I'm happy to pass it along!

  4. That is such a cute ideas. It is much more personal that a party link, but those are great, too. (don't get me wrong) But, I am loving this. My sister is also a blogger, too. Mary @ merrydotdandy.com -- have you joined her? I think you have. I don't know. I'm glad I'm following you! Are you following me? if, not, please do? I'm not sure how I found you, even? I'm going to check out all of the blogs you suggested, too. Thank you!

  5. Way cool on the versatile blogger award. Now this is a sister thing right here! I'll go see your sis and your list of favs. I love the way I feel like I get new friends here in blog land, all the time. See you soon.
