A Blog Award!

Yay! Another blog award. I enjoy getting these because it makes me think that someone is actually looking at my blog!

When you receive this award you are suppose to:

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!
Thank to Danielle at Chickie's Crafty Nest for the award! It's fun to share idea with new Cricutters, as I consider myself a newbie!

Now, 8 things about myself.

1. I have been with my husband since 1998, when I was a sophomore in high school. We have been married for 6 years!

2. I have a master's degree in elementary education, which I consider my crowning achievement in my life thus far.

3. I am a sports nut; I love to watch football, the Olympics, softball, volleyball, gymnastics and many more. But I absolutely hate basketball!

4. I love to read--I read every night before bed and it lets me escape and relax before sleeping.

5. I love all things girly--pink, glitter, stars.

6. I love flip flops--I would wear them every day of the year if I didn't live in Ohio where it snows often!

7. I dream about a scraproom, but can't imagine not crafting while my hubby watches tv right next to me.

8. I love Taco Bell, like really love it! Last meal will be crunchy tacos and an ice cream sundae!

Now, to the hard part, 8 blogs that I want to pass the award too. I am sure some of these people already have it, but they are new to me.

I will be participating in a blog hop with of these great crafters on February 26 and hope you can join us! I have loved checking out their blogs!

Thanks again to Danielle!


  1. Thank you! Amanda you are so kind! Thanks for choosing me among such talented ladies! You sound like such a fun person. I agree about the scrap room. It sounds nice to have one but I love to be in the middle of the action where my hubby and sin are often playing loudly! I love it! I know I would miss them if I were secluded and thus would not create as often. Looking forward to our blog hop! Woot! Woot!

  2. Thanks you Amanda! I am so appreciative for this award! I agree about the scrap room! While some days I wish I had one, most days I'm glad to be in the middle of the action with my hubby and son playing loudly in the background. As you probably know, if you've ever watched one of my videos. It sounds like I have multiple children. I only have a 5 yr. old and my husband! Lol! Thanks again!

  3. Thanks Amanda!! You are so sweet! I have a scrapbook loft and I often feel isolated from everyone in the household as I am all by myself. Although sometimes it's nice to get away!:-) Take care and have a great weekend!

  4. Thank you for visiting my blog and sharing the blog award! I'm a new follower of your blog and look forward to the hop!

  5. Thank you Amanda I'm so honored. I am now following your blog and I'm so super excited for the Hop coming up. I can't wait to see what you do. Thanks again!!

  6. Thank you Amanda! I love Flip Flops too, I wear them all year here in the NW. even in the rain. Cant wait to hop With you!
