Thank you for the recognition!

Awarded Feb. 11, 2011


I am honored to have won the "Stylish Blogger Award". It was passed on to me from Janice at


http://www.cricutology.blogspot.com/.

Update: At the same time that Janice passed this super-award to me, Amanda at http://www.stellarscraps.blogspot.com did too.  Thank you for such sweetness, Amanda -- and I do appreciate the double-recognition!  I sure hope this doesn't mean I need to tell you another 8 interesting things about me, because that would be B-O-R-I-N-G!  LOL!

Here is the "rub" with this award. I am to link back (above) to the site that gave me this award; tell you 8 things that you may not have known about me previously; and also, pass this award on to 8 bloggers whose work I admire. 

Without further ado, here are those 8 things about me:

1. I just became a grandmother in December 2010. Darling Charlotte Grace is a true delight!


2. I met my husband, John, on-line WAY before it became popular ... even before there were on-line dating services, E-Bay, or Google.  We met in 1994 via the Prodigy bulletin board service.  We married 5 years later, a second (last!) marriage for each of us.


3. Years ago, I swam competitively. My specialty stroke was butterfly.


 4.  I was born in the middle of a hurricane -- and life has been a whirlwind since!


5. I dye my hair brown so it looks blonde. No bleach/peroxide needed. Go figure!


6. Twenty-five years ago, I had to have the lower half of my face removed. 300 stitches later, I don't think you can see any scars. Talk about "Extreme Face Makeover!!" 


7. I am an elected official in my township (population: 35,000) ... and won in a landslide in 2007. 


8. I aspire to one day write the Great American Novel. 

Now, for the bloggers I've recently discovered and enjoy, to whom I am passing on this award (in no particular order):

2. Brynn at http://www.flairandfrillscreativity.blogspot.com/
