I was tickled pink to visit my friend Chrissy's blog, Chrissy's Creative Spot, and find this amazing award for me!
I absolutely adore her blog. She is an inspiration to me as a crafter and as a person. I like to chat with her about scrapbooking and card-making and life. I'd love to meet her in real life someday. Won't you go check out her blog?

The rules of this award: (even though I'm not gonna follow them.)
1. Only 5 people allowed.
2. 4 have to be dedicated followers of your blog
3. One has to be someone new or recently new to your blog and live in another part of the world.
4. You must link back to whoever gave you the award. Quite simple, really. It is a way of saying thank you to those who take time out for wonderful comments to boost your day.

I'm paying this award forward to the following people (in no particular order, mind you!)

1. Lucy of LuLu's Petals - I always enjoy her blog. She says the darndest things, and she is so sweet and supportive. I can relate to almost everything she blogs about, and she's also a talented writer, thought she may not know it.

2. Just Jen of Jen's Humble Opinion 2 - I love her dedication as a mom, homeschooler, and wife. She is an awesome, talented writer and also a kind supporter. (She can count as a different part of the world since she's in Canada and I'm in the US, right?)

3. Tamy at 3 Sides of Crazy - This woman is on top of things! She posts the most fabulous recipes and blogs about her crafts and her life. SWEET!

4. Tammy at Queen Size FunnyBone - I love this blog, too! She's witty and honest and entertaining and makes unique observations.

5. Laura at Lunatic Fringe - She's a fantastic mom and her posts are always so thoughtful. Her comments are also encouraging.


6. Suzie at Up the Hill Backwards because her posts often crack me up, and I need to laugh to break the boredom that is sometimes my life.

7. Sassy Mama Bear at Cafe at the End of the Universe because her posts are eclectic and informative and real. I also like her reading and writing blogs.

8. Wani of Wani's World whose scrapbook posts I have read but who I've also recently subscribed to because I enjoy her blog. Not to mention I just won some goodies from her!

9. And to the folks over at 5 Minutes for Mom for allowing me to list my giveaways in their 5 Minutes around the Blogosphere post and who have the coolest pedal cars and retro collectibles you've ever seen!

10. And right back atcha, Chrissy!

I would love to know all of you in person instead of just virtually. One day maybe I'll arrange a blogger conference just for us! Well... I ought not get ahead of myself here. It's a nice thought, though.

Sorry I cheated *she hangs her head in shame :-( *

P. S. Just Jen and Lucy did "right back atcha." I just love those gals! And Jen even personalized it with my name. Isn't that cool?
