What an honor....

Today, in the city of Seward, NE...a new found papercrafter was recognized by a fellow crafter from far away.  My new friend, mentor and fellow crafter Krista from Krista's Paper Cafe has honored me with a "Stylish Blogger Award.  Thank you so much Krista!  It made my day!!  I can't thank you enough for encouraging me though my new found love and journey in the world of papercrafting!  Krista could only pick 8 blogs to honor with this award and again I am honored she decided to choose mine as one of those 8.

Along with this award come a few expectations....

1.  I must share 8 things about myself...so...here they go..

          1.  I have been married since 2004 at which time I had no idea the love of papercrafting or scrapbooking
          2.  I have a beautiful little girl who has been my inspiration to begin this journey back in 2008 to which I have passed on the addiction...I mean, LOVE of art.  (at 2 1/2 my little girl would rather paint and create then watch t.v.  Who can blame her and who am I not to encourage that!)
          3.  I am currently "single parenting" as my husband is fighting overseas for our wonderful country. 
          4.  I um....(wow 8 things, who would have thought this was going to be this hard...LOL) I have 2 other sisters...one older and one younger...The younger sister is getting married in April 2011 and I made all her Invitations.  My first BIG project! 
         5.  I have a sweet spot for Reeses Peaunt Butter Cups...I just love them so much!
         6.  I have driven an 18 wheeler all the way from Cheyanne, WY to Seward, NE (my husband is a truck driver, he owns his own company,  and he threatened me that if I didn't drive home, we were staying the night in the truck...again..)  LOL
        7.  I LOVE to dance and my daughter WILL love it also...  LOL
        8.  Thinking of 8 things to say about myself that would be ineresting to others had to have been one of the hardest things I have had to do....
        9.  I am just kidding on that last one..LOL  The real number 8...I love my family more than life itself and I would do anything for anyone of them...and family isn't only blood...
