Sweet Blog Award


I received this award from 2 blogging friends, Tracey-Garden of Grace and Debbie('s Scrapping Corner). Tracey makes lovely vintage layouts with lots of lace. Debbie amazes me with the work she produces in addition to driving a school bus with K-8 grade students! Thank you!

In turn, I must pass this onto 7 blogging friends:
Kelly (Creates) Kelly's writing is great like her layouts and you'll have so much fun reading her posts.
Anna C-Pictures N Papers Anna takes beautiful pictures around her southwestern Virginia home.
Amy-Little Treasures. Amy is multi-talented, knits, makes cards and scraps. She posts finds from flea markets and her pictures are lovely.
Misty-Perfectly Imperfect. Misty's work is eclectic and so creative!
Sharon-That Girl Fritchey Sharon loves music and her unique creations often use song lines to describe her family experiences.
Scrapbookertink. She has a fun blog!
Karen-KW Studio. Wait till you see the dress form she made. Talk about an artist!

Now I am to list 7 random facts about myself, so (1 from each of the decades I've lived in):
1) When I was a kid, I swam like a fish and did flips off the diving board. When we'd go to pools, the life guards would make me swim a lap because they didn't believe I was big enough to go off the board (I showed them!)
2) As a teenager, my first car was a black Chevy Impala (a 61). My friends called it the Black Pearl.
3) I met my husband in the darkroom while a WVU student taking a photography class.
4) I had my first child at 34 (married 11 years),
5) 2nd child just before my 40th birthday.
6) At age 50, I had thyroid cancer. That's a 90% curable one, but makes you live like it's your last day on earth. (That's not a bad thing)
7) And now, Bob and I are somewhat "empty nesters". Not quite (Chris is 3 miles away, thank goodness). I'm lucky to have my parents, siblings, colleagues, friends, children and so much to look forward too!

Thank you my friends!
