My Craft Spot Release - Tomorrow!
Hello crafters! This is a friendly reminder that tomorrow starts the week-long fun at My Craft Spot. It's time for the 2012 Christmas Winter Stamp Release Party! I've been hard at work (and am still working!) on my projects to show you. There was a slowdown with Canada Post so I was delayed in receiving the products... but they're here now and are ALL well worth the wait!! I've also seen a number of the other design team members' projects and they are AMAZING!!
Also, I've been very blessed to have been passed the Sunshine Blogger Award by Kristan (Babycakes), Laurie (Serenity Scrappers) and Sherrie (Sherrie Scraps with Passion). I feel quite unworthy of this honour, given my limited blogging time these days, and am so incredibly touched and moved that these friends would think of me. Thank you Kristan, Laurie and Sherrie!
As part of this award, I am to follow the rules below:
1. Include award logo in the blog post (check!) 2. Thank the blogger who gave it to you and have a link back to their blog (check!)
3. Answer 10 questions about yourself that have made up yourself
4. Nominate 10-12 bloggers and contact them through their blog to let them know
Question 1: If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live? I would love to live in England. I was born there and have gone back to visit numerous times. I'd need a place with central heat though as I don't think I could live without that now!!
Question 2: What type of car do you drive? I drive a Ford Edge. I'm not the least bit into cars, but I noticed the Edge a couple of years ago and decided that I wanted one. My husband gave me keys for my birthday (although I still got to go and choose the one I wanted). :) I LOVE my car... and my man!
Question 3: If you could be an animal, what would you be? I would be a cat. I'd love to be able to do my own thing and not care what others think. I tend to be too much of a people pleaser and that can have its disadvantages at times. I wouldn't like to have to lick myself all over though...
Question 4: What is your favourite colour? Green! I LOVE green! My craft room is painted green.
Question 5: If you could go back in time and change something about your life, what would you change? I would have stayed in school longer and waited to get married - but I would have wanted my husband to wait for me as well!! I did have two degrees when I got married but never felt like I was done school. It was tough going back to do my Masters with a family... but I'm so glad I did.
Question 6: What is your favourite crafting technique? I LOVE embossing with my Cuttlebug!
Question 7: Coffee or tea? Neither! When I need a hot drink, I prefer hot chocolate.
Question 8: If you could meet anybody in history, who would you like to meet? I would like to meet Moses (from the Bible). I think we've got a lot in common - although I have not killed anybody!! I just think he would be an interesting person to talk with.
Question 9: What is your favourite quote? Never judge a book by its cover.
Question 10: What gives you the most joy in life? My family. I am so incredibly blessed to have a man that is still completely smitten with me after all these years - and three amazing children who fill my heart with so much love that I think it will burst some days. I am beyond thankful for the family I've got.
I am supposed to pass this along to others. I know that this award has been making its way around blogland. If you have not yet received it, then I nominate YOU! Please pick up the award and post it proudly on your blog. Be sure to let me know so I can come and read more about you!
