Stylish Blogger Award and 8 Random Facts

Let me just say I was shocked when I received this award from Robyn at In Joy Stampin.  Robyn is such an amazing Artist/Crafter and to receive compliments on my work from her, leaves me speechless! Thank you so much!  Now I am to leave 8 random facts about myself and then pass this award on to 8 people who I admire and that inspire me.....
  1. I have lived in South Florida for almost 29 years. I am originally from Toledo, Ohio.  Yes Toledo!!  I have 4 sisters of which I am the youngest.
  2. The perfect ending to the day would be dark chocolate and a glass of red wine! 
  3. I love warm weather and love to go barefoot.  I love swimming but hate putting on a bathing suit (so depressing). LOL
  4. Besides crafting I love to cook. I especially love to bake. I have a passion for always trying or creating something new.  I try to grow herbs, the word is TRY.  I like to think that it is the South Florida weather and not me that kills the herbs!
  5. The farthest destinations I have ever traveled to are New Zealand and Australia.  Words can't describe the beauty of these places.  We were there in the June of 2009 (wintertime) and hope to go back during their spring someday.
  6. I love Sushi but would never attempt to prepare it myself.   
  7. I am very handy............. I'd like to think that no challenge is too big for me.  I have installed garbage disposals, dishwashers, ceiling fans, faucets, etc.  You name it, I have either done it or tried!   And yes I am a directions reader, Google searcher, etc. I guess that is why I love to scrap-lift, I love to follow directions!!
  8. I am addicted to E-bay.  I will always shop around and check E-bay last to make sure I am getting a good deal!
In no particular order, I pass this on to 8 lovely and talented ladies who inspire me...................


  1. Awwww, you've made me blush! Your award was much deserved.

    I nearly cried when I read that you're originally from Toledo. I was born and raised in Adrian, MI and my grandparents and sister live in Toledo. It made me even more homesick for America, but such a neat bit of news. :c) It truly is a small world.

    Thanks for sharing,

  2. Donna,
    Thank you so very much for sharing this with me. Wish I was in South Florida with you right now - I'm really sick of white. Sounds like you are very active and energetic and it shows in your creativity and artistry. I was an still am a native of northern Indiana. It truly is a small world.
    Thanks you so much.
