Stylish Blogger Award

Thank you to Lisa Young who recently awarded me the Stylish Blogger Award!  She is also an inspiration to me, so please take the time to visit her blog HERE.


Part of receiving this award is the following:
  • Thank the person who gave you the award on your blog
  • Share 8 things about yourself
  • Pass this award onto 8 other bloggers that inspire you
8 blogs that inspire me include:

  • I'm an accountant for my day job - far from creative!
  • I've been crafting most of my life - with fabric!  My first creations were handmade barbie doll clothes when I was only 8.  I discovered paper crafts 11 years ago (and consequently haven't done much sewing since!)
  • I'm primarily left handed, but because I was forced by my teachers to write and do other tasks with my right hand, I became ambidextrous.  I write and eat with my left hand and do everything else with my right hand (I still don't know why teachers back in the 70's thought it was bad to be a leftie?)
  • I'm the queen of useless information.  I can answer most questions about pop culture, 80's music, tv and movies.  Plus I can sing just about any song from the 80's that you throw at me (funny how those silly lyrics stick in your head).
  • I was once on tv for about 30 seconds.  I sad next to Tom Wopat when he did an introductory segment on Nashville Now (incidentally, he wore A LOT of makeup but he was my favorite Duke Boy).
  • I've driven every kind of junky car imaginable from my first car which was a rusted out Plymouth Horizon to a Renault Alliance that would overheat if allowed to idle for more than 30 seconds.  Consequently, I've learned a lot about mechanics over the years and can change my own tires, oil, spark plugs, etc. 
  • I'm 36 and have never had a cavity (I still cross my fingers every time I go to the dentist).
  • I love horror and sci-fi movies and dislike romantic comedies (although the 40 Year Old Virgin was pretty funny).

Congratulations. It was fun to learn more about you. I am also an accountant (but only part time now that I have the kiddos). Fun stuff, continue to take great care of those pearly whites.
