An Award ? For Me ?

GASP!! That was all I could say yesterday when Melissa, from threeprincedesigns, awarded me with not one, but two blog awards. I started blogging to keep family and friends up-to-date. Never did I think I'd meet so many wonderful people, or that someone would think my blog worthy for an award, or two. Thanks so much Melissa, I'm honored. Okay, now on to the awards.

For the first one I need to list 5 addictions. Ha, that's all, just 5? Okay here they are, in no particular order.
1) fabric
2)the internet
3)crafting, sewing especially
4)Ben&Jerry's pistachio pistachio ice cream
5)my family

For the honest scrap award the rules require a little more digging than that.
The rules are:1) Honorees are to list 10 honest things about themselves - and make it interesting, even if we have to dig deep! 2) We are to pass the award on to 5 bloggers we feel embody the spirit of the Honest Scrap.
So with that said, here are 10 honest things about myself.

1)I wish I could win millions so I could spend my days sewing and crafting.

2) I am an introvert, and have very few friends outside of family.

3) I have so many allergies (indoor, outdoor, pet, and food) that my husband jokes I should live in a bubble. My allergist would prefer I walk outside covered head to toe, and wear a face mask. Honest!

4) I love to read and to learn about history.

5)My favorite tv shows are The Closer, Monk, and Psych.

6) I have so many crafting interests I often start something new before finishing the first project.

7)When I first started college I majored in Mortuary Science. I figured working with the dead would be the best job because they can't give you any problems. I ended up with a degree in Business.

8)I'm not only an Army Wife, I'm also an Army Veteran. I served proudly for 12 years.

9) Every night before going to bed I turn on the weather channel. They have some good shows on that channel.

10)My ideal job would be to work with small children (shaping the future), the elderly (could learn a lot from the stories they'd share), or as an art teacher (get paid to craft all day).

Whew!! That was difficult. Okay, now that I've spilled my guts to you all, I have to pass these awards on so that others can gasp and spill their guts as I did.
My honorees are:

1) Claudie of Tickled Pink
2) Cheryl of Peaceful Blessings
3) Aby of Abyquilt
4) Holly of MommyHolly
5) Molly of Molly's Place

Congratulations ladies! And thanks again to Melissa, and to my readers. Thank you.

I loved reading all those interesting facts about you! Army vet and wife- wow- you are amazing! I can relate to you also on the introverted part.

MOLLY said...

Well, I too, am so very honored to have received such pretigious awards. And by people who don't even know me? LOL This blogging thing is just terrific. I am so addicted. I will get busy fullfilling my obligations. Thanks so much. (BTW-did you mean to link to those of us you awarded?--just wondered)

Carlotta said...

Yes I did Molly, thanks for bringing that to my attention. In all the excitement I overlooked it.

Claudie said...

Dear Carlotta
Thank you so much for the awards. I'm not very good at these things, but I thank you for awarding me.
I'm honored.
P.S. It will go under my "awards" category on my blog.
