Stylish Blogger Award

I was so honored and so touched to receive this award from Karen at http://karens-kakes-krafts.blogspot.com/   

  I found her blog a few weeks ago and love to visit her.  The instructions that come with this reward is to tell 8 things about myself that others may not know.
1)  My favorite place to go for vacation is Florida....(ok so my family does know that about me)
2)  In the last 3 years, I have lost 3 wonderful people that I miss every day..my dad, my father in law
     and my son's fiance, Christie

3)  I scraplift quite often and wish I had more original ideas!!
4)  I am beginning to think I am starting to become a shopaholic...but only for scrapping supplies!
5)  On cold weekends, I am very content to stay in my PJ's all day!!!
6)  I love to grow flowers and seeing them bloom really makes me happy!
7)  I have been married to my best friend for 25 years (although he really loves to aggravate me!)
8)  I have two sons, a daughter in law, a granddaughter and grandson that mean everything to me!

9)  http://www.cardmonkey-business.blogspot.com/    I know I am only supposed to pick 8 but.....I just remembered while making a card, how wonderfully generous Ellen is.  She offered a sample of the Baker's Twine on her blog and sent some to me.  I had never used it before and wanted to try it before ordering any.  I really appreciated receiving this and wanted to thank her here....Scrappers are the best!!!

There are so many more I could name that I love to visit and where I find such inspiration!!  I am sure a lot of these women do not follow my blog but I can always hope right???
