Well, I have been a little MIA this week. The trip last weekend took a little toll on me and I've just been taking a little break from crafting this week. I've worked all week, come home and enjoyed the basketball playoff games and most nights stayed up way past my bedtime trying to watch the end of these games. Why they come on so late is beyond me! Anyway, while I've been on my R&R break, I have received some awards from some very special blogging buddies. Here they are, in no particular order:
From Jeannie. Now, Jeannie is one of the happiest bloggers that I know. She absolutely makes the cutest, most fun cards each and every day AND she is silly cute! She has the happiest spirit and I love visiting her blog every day to see what she has crafted for us to view AND to get a "have a happy day" from her. Do check her out at http://dragonflyjourneys.blogspot.com/. She will definetly lift your spirits. Jeannie has given me the "Honest Scrap Award". The rules for this award are: 1) I must thank the person who gave me the award and list their blog and link
2) I must list 10 honest things about myself so here goes....
1. I love chocolate. I don't care what kind, I just love it all!
2. I absolutely, with all my heart, LOVE being a grandmother.
3. I love Auburn Football and basketball.
4. I never went to college. I regret it now, but at the time I was done with school!
5. I've been working since I was 15. Full time since I was 18. (and I will be 48 this year!)
6. I would love to own a scrapbooking store.
7. I would like to be an SU demonstrator, I just don't have the clients for it locally.
8. I would love to be a better stamper.
9. I wish I could learn Photoshop Elements. I have the software, but I need lessons bad!
10. I love paper crafting and all of the wonderful friends I have made thru doing this craft and my blog.
Now, on to the next award. This one is from Maz. Now, let me just tell you....Maz is aMAZing!! She creates some of the most beautiful cards and gifts I've ever seen. She is so blessed with a creative mind. I wonder sometimes, "how did she think of that?!" Maz is also so very kind and always leaves me such thoughtful messages. Do yourself a favor and check out her fabulous creations at http://natures-workshop.blogspot.com/. Maz has awarded me the "Gift of Love Award". There are no specifics with this award you just need to pass it onto 5 people. What a lovely award. Thank you so much Maz!! So, I will pass this award along to some 'ausome' ladies who always leave me the "gift of love" with their warm and friendly messages for me:

Well, I will do one card tomorrow morning as it is my daughter-in-law's birthday tomorrow. Then, we're off to the party in the afternoon. We're having a crawfish boil. How fun is that?! Then on Sunday, my BFF is coming over and she is going to help me re-organize my craft room. I will owe her BIG TIME!! So, won't post much this weekend, but I should be ready to go again on Monday for sure. Have a great weekend and as always, thanks for stopping by!
