Thank You!! Thank You!! Thank You!!

I want to thank several friends for a few blog awards over the past month.  As usual, I am so sorry that I am so terrible with these.  Each of these talented ladies are so encouraging and they are my favorite blogs to visit!   Please stop by and see all the amazing creations they share!  You'll be very happy you stopped by!  I'm listing these in the order that I received them and then I will share more at the bottom of the post.

June from Simply Elegant Paper Crafts shared her BFB Award and A Thing of Beauty Award.  Thank you so much June! 

Here are the rules for the BFB Award:
1.  Post about this award on my blog and link to the person that gave it to me
2.  Pass along to those that visit and leave comments on your blog regularly
Here are the rules for the A Thing of Beauty Award
1. I must share 5 things about myself ( 1 of the listed items must be something about crafting)
2.  Pass the award to 5 other blogs.

Jenae from Just Jenae shared her Versatile Blogger Award.  Thank you so much Jenae!

The "rules" of this award:
1. Thank the person who sent it to you 
2. Tell 7 things about yourself
3. Send this to 5 fellow versatile bloggers

Dr. Sonia from Cards, Crafts and Kids Projects; Amy from Amy's Crafting Space; Sherrie K from Sherrie Scraps with Passion shared their Irresistably Sweet Blog Award.  Thank you so much (and my girls thank you too Sonia)!

The rules for the award are the following:
1.) Send a thank you to the person who nominated you and include their link.
2.) To accept this award, answer 7 random facts about yourself.
3.) Pass the award to at least 8 other blog buddies. I'll share 8 facts about me (and one has to be a crafting fact).
  1. I'm a Christian, Wife, SAHM, Preschool Substitute Teacher, and Soccer Coach!
  2. I swore I would never drive a mini-van...I now drive one (at least until all 3 girls are out of car seats)!
  3. I never LOL...I am more of a soft giggle type..hehe!
  4. I have a natural tendency to always help those who need it!
  5. I am addicted to salt (I crave it)!
  6. I love crafting with my kids...most days (if your a Mom, you understand some days you just need nap-time to last a little longer)!
  7. I love the friends I have made all over the world through this blog!
  8. I tend to be very chit-chatty when I leave my comments (sorry, but that is what happens when I spend all my time talking to toddlers, I need to talk to an adult sometimes) 
I have a terrible time deciding who to pass these awards onto.  I think that is why it always takes me so long to post them because I truly appreciate each one of the talented friends/followers that I have met over the last few months!  There are just too many of you to choose from and I believe you all deserve these!  Normally, I just skip this part but this past week was so hard and so many of you stopped by to lend your support, thoughts and prayers and I really, really appreciate your friendships.  I missed visiting you all so here is my thank you to the ones who stop by and leave their sweet comments either everyday or a lot of them stop by each post since their last visit!  This is going to be long and I am going to list them in alphabetical order!

All of these awards go to...

For all of you listed above, please accept each of these awards and do not feel obligated to go through ALL of the requirements of each one!  There are so many more of you that stop by and I'm so sorry I can't list everyone (I've been working on this post since last night)!  Please know I do appreciate your support!  If there is a blog listed that you have never visited, please stop by and check out these wonderfully creative ladies and their inspiring blogs!  Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing these awards with me!

I was going through the list and i was like...that's more than 8... LOL, I didn't see the part that said "at least 8!" OMG. I'm telling you, Barbie Moments! If that was the case, I wouldn't have had such a hard time choosing 8 people! LOL! I'm SO thrilled I got this one twice. :) Thanks so much, I'm going to edit my blog post now saying I got one from you too. :D

Just Jenae said...

Ahhh thanks for thinking of me! I think we might be twins. I too crave salt (the only thing I don't add it to is Kraft Mac n' cheese. I even put it on lemons and watermelon! I will probably die from to much sodium, but I will die happy!!) and have all girls... I too am Christian and find the most happiness in helping others, I used to drive a mini-van and then girl #4 came along and we wanted a bigger car! (Ford Expedition) I love crafting with my girls and I am a also a bit
(okay REALLY) chit-chatty. I LOVE your comments by the way! :)

You are so awesome!! I love how chatty you are :) And I understand completely about talking to adults after toddlers all day. So sorry I haven;t been around as much, this 5th pregnancy is killing me with all day morning sickness. I am praying my second trimester will be better. Love ya -Paper PAnther
