~~..::I've Been Chosen::..~~

Wouldn't you know it??.. I've been given another award.. This time it's from Scrapsadaisee.. Forgive me for not noticing your blog before, but you have some awesome crafty work from what I've seen so far.. I'm going to have to dig deeper,lol... Part of the acceptance is to offer 5 things about myself.. If anyone knows me.. I'm pretty much a simple girl.. I don't like too much conflict or confrontation... but here are 5 things about me:

1. I absolutely love potatoes... whether it be french fries, baked potatoes or hash browns.. any type of potatoes.. I'm there!!

2. Some of you may already know, but for those that don't .. my favorite color is BROWN!

3. I've only been scrapbooking/crafting since Dec 2007.. when I bought my cricut from Walmart for $119.00.. I was so excited to get that deal as they were going for almost $200 everywhere else.

4. I am a nurse.. but my absolute favorite part of being a nurse is drawing blood.. I will stick you in a heart beat!,lol...

5. Seems like I can not live in one place for more than 2 years at a time.. Lately I have been moving every 2 years.. this past two years, though, I have moved every year.. Getting ready to move again in about 2 months!.. I know.. it's sickening, but if I'm not happy I'll keep doing it until I'm happy.. (Good thing about renting!)..

Thank you again for this award.. I'm not going to pass it along as I really hate these tag type things, but I am appreciative of my award...

~~..:Award Acceptance::..~~

Thank you so much Janelle for awarding me this award!.. I am learning a lot of new tips and tricks along the way!.. I've only been scrapbooking for about 4 years, but only 2 years seriously and I'm glad that I have picked it back up since moving to Georgia and finding the Cricut...

~~..::Whhooooo Moi??::..~~

I've been awarded the Kreative blogger award!.. Who Moi??.. I never really considered myself to be creative.. just fortunate... I love scrapbooking and everything about it.. What got me started on scrapbooking was taking pictures.. I'm a mother of 4 children, who really aren't children anymore.. and I wanted to start preserving the memories of them.. If I had known what I know now about picture taking and scrapbooking I would have started a long time ago.. Oh how theose years are gone!.. Today, I try and take as many pictures as possible.. trying to be as creative as I can be!

Thank you Chocolate Drop.. Drop on by her blog and check out what she is up to!

~~..::BLOG CANDY!!::..~~

Well.. My life has not gone in the direction I would like it to.. I thought 2009 was going to would be good for me, but there hasn't been any change.. I know we are only 9 days in, but if these 9 days are off.. Then I can only imagine what the rest of the year holds for me.. I'm trying to stay positive about it.. But it's really hard when you are thrown curve balls at every angle!..

But anywhooo.. enough woah is me!,lol...

It's blog candy time... This is my first ever time doing blog candy and my first RAK of 2009... I was so shocked when I walked into a Walmart about 15 minutes from my house that I never knew was there and still in the Christmas clearance section there sat.. tons of Martha Stewart Christmas glitters and stamps.. I couldn't believe it... I had a messageboard member send me the Gingerbread men stamps.. but this Walmart had tons of them... Thank you sooo much (You know who you are,lol.. wink)

Well here's the blog candy.. Just leave me a comment.. send me prayers.. (I need them!,lol) and you will be entered! This will end on Saturday January 10, 2009 at 8pm EST.... Okay.. Okay.. Didn't realize I put December, but thanks to those that have good eyes.. That would be one long blog candy giveaway!..LMAO!
