My First Award

I was delighted when I opened my inbox yesterday to find a nice surprise waiting for me- Beth Stone gifted me with an award. What a compliment! Thank you Beth! As she doesn't know me personally, that is three times a pleasure!

The award comes with the instructions that we nominate 7 favorite blogs, and as I'm such a family person, I'm going to nominate first my sister's blogs: Peggy, Meldy, Tina, and my brother Robert's blog.
I hope no one screams "NEPOTISM" at me! It's just that I'm really a fan of their creative talents!

Here are the other blogs I'm nominating:
Altered Book Lover for all the techniques shared so generously here!
Altered Attic for her fabulous artwork I so enjoy looking at and savoring, and for her courage and fighting spirit!
Cabbie, a fellow filipina, for her happy blog with a chockful of projects!
I've been a follower of their blogs because of the inspiration I get!

The second thing I'm supposed to do is post 7 facts about me (not that you want to know this!):
I'm the eldest in my family and I've been working in our family business since I was 11 years old! I am a messy person! Good grief! I have one whole craft room to myself and I can't keep it clean! One day I'll have to make a project out of that! I am part of a Christian Covenant community and I met my husband there. He's one of my biggest blessings, mainly because he doesn't mind my mess (kidding!) We got married when I was 37 years old, and we have one son.
My last fact is I love journals and have a whole stack of them. My instruction to my husband is to burn all of it when I die! Maybe except the ones when Josh was a baby because Josh likes me to read that to him.

    The book I am reading is called 'Me and Mr Darcy' by Alexandra potter' it's a modern day style 'pride and prejudice' book and a lovely read so far.
    I am a huge fan of pride and prejudice too and have read and re read it many times along with watching all the films as well.
    Great to meet another fan :)
