yay... awards

Wow.. this week has been full of surprises. Two bloggy awards I wanted to mention... I received the Honest Scrap award from AMIdesigns a few days ago.. thanks! Here are the details:

There are a few requirements and they are as follows:
· I must thank the person who gave me the award and list their blog and link it
· I must list 10 honest things about myself
· I must put a copy of The Honest Scrap Logo on my blog.
· I must select at least 7 other worthy bloggers & list their links 
· I must notify the bloggers of the award and hopefully they will follow the above three requirements also.

Here are the 10 honest things about myself:
· I love all kinds of cheese... yum!
· One of my fave books is Where the Wild Things Are (I am totally excited about the movie!!!)
· I hate man sandals, or "mandals"... mandals and socks are even worse.
· I played the trombone in junior high (and no, I am not joking)
· I am 5' 1" (so yes, it is funny and awkward that I played the trombone at one point)
· I love walking through piles of autumn leaves
· I love to dance... but not on a serious level, more like dumb dancing
· I track my etsy sales with little pins on a map (geeky?... yes.)
· I only write with black ink pens... I have had an aversion to blue since Grade 8.
· It is my lovely husband that is the clean one in our household, I am bit of a clutterer.

And 7 worthy blogs, I'd like to pass this along to...:

The second bloggy award I received is the blog friends award from LillyShayStyle... thanks! Here are the details: "These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbon of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."

And another 8 awesome blogs, I'd like to pass this along to (and also totally worth checking out):

Happy reading everyone!

Congratulations! :)

I like your lists as well, I've always disliked blue pens too. Lately I've been forcing myself to adjust, though I don't know why. I still end up using the black ones 99% of the time!
