MORE LOVE!

Aww! I’m always tickled purple when people like the stuff I post here and then give out awards! I find crafting quite gratifying in itself but to share that is immeasurable as is getting feedback from such efforts. You are so awesome! So a big shout out to Tracee at Heartmade. I love her cute stuff 🙂 She nominated me for the Liebster Award.

That’s all I got for now, folks! I’m running around like a mad woman getting things done for my friend who went to a nursing home last week. We’re talking care of his dogs and the coordination of that is a lot! I’m trying to find them a foster home for now but it’s proving to be difficult placing two large dogs together. I don’t want to take them to a shelter; however, that might be a real eventuality.

Awards? What! No WAY!

Well, never did I set out to win awards or even imagine many people following me in these last couple months since I’ve re-started blogging. Here’s a big THANK YOU to Heart Made! Thanks for the nomination 😀 I love all of your comments and blog! I hope that everyone goes to check out her page also! I was inspired by so many people’s love of crafting, knitting and writing, that I wanted to share also since my own blood family doesn’t seem to appreciate it as all of you. I so love you all!

This week marks 50 followers and that’s a big THANK YOU to you also! And what a better way to share the news (and some love in a few) than a post. But that’s part of the rules. They really aren’t rules rules like “No smoking in the boys room” or “15 items or less” but guidelines nonetheless to follow to promote more blogs 🙂 That’s what we are all here for right? To share the love!

Now some fun facts about myself…

Both my parents were Marines. I grew up in a very structured environment but I’m a crafty artistic flowy kind of person.

I’ve lived all over the world however, I have resided in Pennsylvania for the last 17 years. I’ve found home!

I am absolutely in love with purple. I wish my hair were purple. It will be soon.

Speaking of my hair, I’ve donated nearly 3 feet of mine to different programs. (Not all at once lol!)

I didn’t get my driver’s license til I was 25. I never needed until I decided to go to college. I failed the driving part 3 times. 😦

My children and I have blue birthmarks compliments of my asian descent. When my oldest was born, I accused the hospital of bruising my newborn. They set me straight.

I thought my husband stalked me when we first met. I had no idea how he got my phone number until my best friend told me later that it was her attempt of getting us together. That was 10 years ago.

And now I’m off to go post my nominations!

I’m not cheating…I swear

So I was reading one of my favorite comics and there was a little linky to check out his tumblr.

I’ve heard a lot of stuff about tumblr; mostly good stuff, so I went over to check it out with no intentions of signing up. However, I get there and am coaxed to join by a very svelte splash page and because it only takes a minute to join.

I’m a sucker for pretty things.

I’m sweetstarrhi over there with the tagline Craftmanic Mommy.

Oh it is lovely. Twitter and wordpress combined! What! Visual pleasures and vicariousness abound. 

 

I won’t be posting anything over there. I’m just there to window shop. I promise.
