My First Blog Award - January 2011

Wow, I am very excited I just won my first blog award from Emily at .  It is the Stylish Blogger Award and I have seen this award on many of my fellow crafters blogs and it is such a nice honor to be among them.

I have only being blogging since December and when I started I didn't have any idea that this crafting blog world existed.  I soon found out that there are so many wonderful crafters out there.  As part of the award you are to pay it forward to 8 others:

These ladies have wonderful work and I know several of them have already won this award, but wanted to share with them that how much I love their work.

I also need to share 8 things about me:

1. I am a wife and mother to my two beautiful boys (Tyler, almost 4) and (Bryan, just turned one)
2. I have a Master's Degree in Architecture (Not a great degree in this economy)
4. I love my Clemson Tigers!
5. I love to be creative in all sorts of mediums; photography, sewing and paper crafting
6. I love being gardening
7. I love to hike and go camping with my family
8. I drove a Safari Truck in Disney's Animal Kingdom for a summer

Emily thanks again for this award.  If you want to be inspired please check out her work.

Come back to see more projects soon!
