Blog Award–My First!

I am so very excited – I received my very first Blog Award! I want to give a BIG THANKS to Brenda from Creativity is Only a State of Mind for giving me the Stylish Blogger Award! Thank you Brenda, I really appreciate it!

Stylish Blogger Award

Now that I have this, I need to do 4 things:

1). Thank and link back to the person who awarded me

2). Share 8 things about myself

3). Pay it forward to 8 bloggers that I have recently discovered

4). Contact those bloggers and tell them about their awards

Well since she made me feel so special, I will thank Brenda once again! Her blog is full of inspiration for me! Please stop by and visit her blog.

OK, here are 8 things I will share about myself (please don’t fall asleep here, lol!)

  1. I’m a Christian, a wife, a mother.
  2. I have raised a wonderful 18 year old daughter who is now in college and a 27 year old son who graduated from UNT and is now engaged!
  3. As you can see in #2, I will be a new Mother-in-Law soon to a wonderful girl whom I love like a daughter already!
  4. I am a retired Flight Attendant and I flew both domestic and international routes. I love to travel!!!
  5. I’m a reality TV junkie!
  6. Not only do I love paper crafting but I also love to quilt. In fact, I started quilting long before I started to scrapbook.
  7. I am an OBSESSIVE and HABITUAL photo-taker!!! I take pictures of any and everything!
  8. I’m the proud “Grandmother” to Boots, the tabby cat that my son adopted when he still lived at home. But somehow my son’s gone but the cat’s still here! But I didn’t know that I could love a cat so much!

I’m going to pay this award forward to some special Bloggers that inspire me every day. This was so hard because there are so many talented people out there but here are some of my favorites:

Shirley at Okieladybugs Scrap N' More

Sheila at She's a Sassy Lady

Tina & Wendy at Two Chics & A Cricut

Michelle at Michelle's Paper Affair

Tammy at So Happy Scrappin'

Diane at Capadia Design

Linda at Nothin' Fancy

Tanya at Time for Scrappin

Thanks to all of these incredible ladies for their creative inspiration and, some cases, their friendship (Michelle is the Happiest person I know!) I’ll be passing this award on and I hope that you can check out all of these blogs to see for yourself why I like them!

Until next time, Happy Crafting,


Merry Christmas–Scrapbook Style

I found this on another blog and just had to share it with you! I have nothing to do with this company – just thought it was cute.


(Wouldn’t you love to take a trip through this warehouse?)

Until next time, Happy Crafting,


Sorry–I’ve Been MIA!

Well, that thing called life just keeps getting in the way! Confused smile There has been some good things and not so good things. My DD and I were down with colds over the Thanksgiving week. Then I tried to brave the Black Friday crowds (I vow NEVER to go to Wal-Mart on Black Friday EVER AGAIN in my life, amen!) – enough said about that! But going to craft stores is completely different. But by the time I returned home my throat felt like a swallowed a porcupine! I’ve also been busy with the Cricut classes that I have been teaching at Hobby Lobby and I think that I may be teaching SDU at Michael’s soon. In the middle of all of the above, my DD had dental surgery (and while she was there I think they got their patients mixed up and kept my 18 year-old and sent an 8 year-old home with me, Surprised smile! Ok, maybe it wasn’t that bad but those of you with teenagers will understand!) I’ve also been transforming our home into a Christmas wonderland. Ha! You didn’t fall for that one did you? So I haven’t had a lot of time to create and I don’t like that. I promise that I will have something to post soon. Thanks for being patient!
