A Thing of Beauty Award

I'm postponing the Keep it Simple post this week to share a darling award that I received from a new blog reader, Grace Baxter. Grace wanted to share a list of folks whose blogs she enjoyed and I was overjoyed to receive one of her first awards! Thank you so much Grace! it's my turn to list five stylin' blogs to earn the next round of awards! Here are my picks, in no particular order: (Not only do each of these blogs carry an adorable design but the artwork found on each is amazing!) 1) Poppy Paperie (Lisa Johnson) - Swirls, flowers, and different size fonts...My three favorite things all in one place! 2) Stamping Mathilda (Godelieve Tijskens) - I love how she uses her stamped creations in her custom banners. 3) Stamping a Latte (Jodi Collins) - A cafe, a latte, a laptop...what's not to love! 4) Inspired By (Jill Foster) - A perfectly wonderful CAS blog. 5) Day by Day (Melissa Goodsell) - I love that she uses photos of her family and her craftiness in her banner. And now I'm supposed to share five things about myself...humm....there's not that much that is very interesting but here goes... 1) I'm the proud owner of eight chickens (and recipient of many farm fresh eggs!) 2) I homeschool my two children (and I love it!!) 3) I work P/T and teach monthly classes at a scrapbook store (and I love that too!!) 4) I used to travel extensively for work...on the road about 50% of the year. 5) For the first time in my life I am the proud owner of a seven-year old, big 'ol, very handsome tabby cat (and against all odds...I love him) Oh yeah, and one thing I love about crafting...It's the friendships that have been created and the joy of being in a wonderful industry, full of wonderful people! Want to highlight some of your favorite blogs? Grad the badge and share the love!

Congrats on your award. You, like Godelieve, have inspired oodles of people.

I'm thrilled that you love your cat. You need to have more than one though. He would love some company.
