My Very First Award!!!



I am just beaming with excitement!! Merry so graciously gave me this award...please go check out her lovely work here http://merrymadecardscrafts.blogspot.com/
Thank you very much for giving me my first award! I really appreciate your nice comments on my blog...along with the help you have given me! :)

So the rules are that I have to list 5 things I like to do each day and also pass this along to 5 friends. Here goes.

Things I like to do each day:
1. Eat breakfast ( I could never live without breakfast!)
2. Get online and see what lovely creations everyone is making (then try to actually create something pretty myself)
3. Chat with my friends/family
4. Spend time with my hubby (walking to get the mail, working on our new house, drinking tea and eating scrumpets...LOL! I LOVE my hubby!!!!)
5. Trying to catch up with a good show/movie

5 friends (I guess nobody really knows me yet because I am so new but I will call them a craft friend anyways)

1. Stephanie at Stamping and Sharing
Check out her wonderful crafts here: http://stampingsharing.blogspot.com/
I love her upbeat attitude....also funny and generous! She loves to give things away...one I these days I hope to snag one of her wonderful candies!! 8 hour time difference doesn't look hopeful for me though.

2. Linda at Payne Holler Cards
Her beautiful website is here: http://paynehollercards.blogspot.com/
She creates stunning pieces and sometimes offers good tips (like saving take out containers!)

3. La-La Land Crafts
Check out the weekly challenges and beautiful creations here: http://lalalandcrafts.blogspot.com/
I am thankful for a challenge that even newbies can enter! They don't require specific designer paper/markers or stamps (some of which I can't even afford!)

4. Get Sketchy
Check out the weekly sketch ideas and beadtiful pieces here: http://getsketchy.blogspot.com/
Another place a newbie can get sketch ideas and enter a wonderful contest! I like how you don't have to be a craft genius from the get-go to enter these challenges. Much appreciated!! :)

5. Deanne at Am I A Scrap Addict?
Check out her innovative ideas here: http://a-scrapaddict.blogspot.com/
This is a new one I have been following and I absolutely love how she reuses stuff (going green). Just today I read how she used juice lids to make a mini album! How cool! Thanks for such creative ideas...keep them coming!!

Okay, that just about wraps up my time for today. I better get some chores done before I do anymore crafting...boo! But it MUST be done!

Hope everyone has a great day and if I get my chores done fast enough I just might be back on here to share something I created!

Hi,
Congratulations on your award!
Thank you for entering my blog candy! While I'm here, I thought I'd let you know about a new challenge blog starting soon. It's called Crafty Calendar Challenge and there's a Design Team Call going on there at the moment, if you're interested. :)
