My First AWARD....

Woke up on Saturday morning, checked my email and discovered that I had won the stylish blogger award from  Belinda!!!!! Thank you so much! You can visit her blog here.  This is my first award for anything and I super excited to receive it. 

When you recieve this award you are to pay it forward and follow rhese rules:

1) thank the person who gave this award to me and link it back to their blog

2) share 8 things about myself

3) pass this award to 8 other individuals that I have recently discovered

4) leave a comment so that they can pass along the recognition!

So lets see 8 things about me........

1. Being crafty is pretty new to me. It was about 2 years ago that I decided to get back into it. I remember sitting at home with Jayden who was probably 6 months old, thinking I need something to do, and a way to get out of the house... so I searched for a Stampin Up Demonstrator and have been going ever since. 

2. I can't stand food or anything to even be a day past the expired date. 

3. I am pretty quiet and shy and terrified of large groups IRL! But once I'm comfortable, not so much!

4. Sharing your artwork and having people comment on it and encourage you... IS SUCH A REWARD for me!

5. I have lived in KY for 7 months. This move has been a lot harder than I anticipated. I was recently told that it takes 3 1/2 years after a move to feel like it is really home! Really??? So that means I have just under 3 years... yeeks... 

6. Crocheting is amazing! I love making something new.

7. I have never done a swap before and now I am participating in 3 - UH OH! Hope I get them all done on time! :)

8. DREAMING. THINKING. ANALYZING. Just trying to make sense of this crazy life! And learning to TRUST in the ONE who has it all figured out... I wrote that when we lived in New Orleans on my blog during that time. This is kind of me summed up. and this has been my life verse lately.: 
Joshua 1:9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.

And now for 8 fabulous New Blogs I have been following in no particular order:

Take time to check out all these fabulous blogs! Lots of fun on there! Thanks for stopping by my blog! Leave a comment!

Hello Colleen and Happy Monday. What a sweet thing to pass along the Stylish Blogger Award to me. You totally made my day. I had a great time scrolling through your blog, which is being added to my favorites list, and see that we both enjoy the same stamps sets. I'll pay it forward right away. Thanks again, Elizabeth
