Sun Shine Award

Good Afternoon!! Last week I was awarded the Sunshine Award from a very sweet friend Naomi over at Creative Bug on the Loose.  Thank you so much Naomi you are such a talented and kind person!!

The rules are simple:

1. Include award logo in the blog post
2.Thank the blogger who gave it to you and have a link back to their blog
3.Answer 10 questions about yourself that have made up yourself
4.Nominate 10-12 bloggers and contact them through their blog to let them know


1.One electronic that you couldn't live without?

Besides the obvious, my computer, I wouldn't beable to function without my cellphone. You are probably thinking I use it to text, bbm and talk while all that is true the reason I couldn't live without it is because it is my memory. Everything I have to do for the day, week, month is on that phone and set reminders. I have such a bad memory that I could go down stairs to get something and forget what it was I was looking for when I get there (no I don't have Alzheimer's I am too young for that!?!?)

2. What's your Favourite Crafting tool?

Cuttlebug. I use it to emboss, die cut, flatten bottlecaps without it my cards would look flat and boring.

3. When do you do the most crafting? Morning, afternoon or night?

Well a little of all, morning when my daughter is still sleeping, afternoon when all the daycare kids are sleeping and at night when my daughter is in bed. Sense a patterned everybody is sleeping but me. I do sleep don't worry.

4. Favourite Colour?

Green but I don't seem to use it alot when crafting, weird!!

5. Other then crafting what hobbies to you have?

Couponing. If I don't have a coupon for a certain product I check online for one. I never pay full price for anything including clothes. If you look at my closet and my daughter's closet they all have sale stickers on them. I try to buy for the next season while they are on sale. For example when they put there winter clothes on sale I will buy clothes for the following winter for my daughter always buying a size or two bigger then she is in now.

6. One thing you may not know about me?

I am a procrastinator. All though I am getting better I am constantly putting things off and saying I will get to that later, but as I mentioned my memory isn't the greatest so I usually never get to it later.

7. Why did I start blogging?

At first I started the blog to enter a giveaway and not know what this whole blogging thing was about I just started posting my cards not really thinking anything of it, just a good way to organize my cards. Then people started following me so I thought I better actually put some effort into this. Reading other people's blogs help me to become a better blogger and I have found that it helps to relax me if I have had a stressful day.

8.What have you gotten out of blogging?

I have learned so many new techniques, new computer skills, how to take better pictures and most importantly I have made such great friends!!

9. What is greatest accomplishment?

Personally my daughter , but crafting wise being on a Design team and being a Guest Designer for a couple of blogs.

10. What do you want your live to look like in 5 years?

I would love to be remarried and have more kids, I never wanted my daughter to be an only child. Career wise I am not sure yet, probably start my own home daycare and maybe sell my crafts. If I am really dreaming I would love to open a dessert/craft store. Have a cute little shop set up were people (women) can come and eat dessert, buy my creations and learn a few new techniques. I would have to have a personality transplant for that to happen though as I a very quiet person in the real world. Most importantly I want God's plan for my life.

Ok now to pass it onto some other bloggers. I know it says to nominate 10-12 people but I am going to be a rule breaker (so not me in the real world I have never been to the principals office) but I have come up with 8 ladies to pass it onto. These ladies have ones that I email back and forth, ask questions to and they are super helpful and just plain ray of lights!!

Cheri: DJ's Sundries
Lisa: A Mermaid's Craft
Kate: Small Bits Of Paper
