I Was Given An Award!!

Oh My Gosh!!!!
Yolanda at Crafty Scentiments gave me this award!

When I first started talking to my daughters about starting a blog, I was only thinking of having a place to share my projects with, hopefully, new friends and my family. I never thought about being given any type of blog award. This is so GREAT!! Thank you Yolanda!!!

This is a pay-it-forward style award. Here are the rules:
1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded you this
2. Share 8 things about yourself
3. Pay it forward to 8 bloggers that you have recently discovered
4. Contact those bloggers and tell them about their awards.

Here are 8 things  about myself
1. My husband is my biggest crafting enabler
2. My favorite time is crafting time with my daughters and granddaughter
3. I am a paper hoarder
4. I spend more time blog surfing than crafting
5. I love Harry Potter and the Twilight series
6. I would leave my Christmas decorations up all year long if I could
7. I am addicted to buffalo chicken bites
8. My Gypsy is my all time favorite crafting tool

 Being so new to the blogging world, I am finding new blogs all the time.. So I am going to share this award with 8 of my new blogging friends who,like me, don't have a lot of followers yet. They do have awesome blogs, though!

1. Amy at
2. Shirley G at
3. Debra at
4. Doris at
5. Lisa at
6. Rachel at
7. Houses Built of Cards at

Thank you for stopping by!
