I missed my blog birthday.  It was Friday.  I’ve been at this thing for two years now and I continue to be amazed by the community I’ve found.  I am so thankful for all the encouragement and support I have received from my blog readers.  I appreciate all the comments you leave – I read them all and try my hardest to respond to as many as I can.  Thank you for enriching my creative life.  I continue to be inspired and motivated by all your creative endeavors, too.

I’ve received some lovely awards from different bloggers over the last couple of months.  I am always honored and flattered to be chosen, but I rarely pass them on.  I don’t want anyone to think that I am ungrateful.  That is not it.  I just could never choose a handful of bloggers to single out.  There are too many wonderful and crafty blogs out there to choose from.  And I hate that I-am-the-last-one-chosen-for-the-team feeling.  You know the one I am talking about, right?  So please know that I really appreciate it even if I don’t pass it along.

But, I’ve been tagged for six random things.  Twice.  This I can manage.

1.  I wear very little make-up:  eyeliner, mascara, lipstick.  Eyeshadow and blush if it’s a fancy party.  That’s it.

2.  I have no issues putting the laundry in the washing machine.  I can even move it to the dryer.  I despise folding and putting it away.

3.  My closet is a mess most of the time.  See number 2 above.

4.  I love to bake, but I don’t do it often because I love baked goods.  And I would eat them all.

5.  I go through the mail when it comes and take out the good stuff.  Once a week I deal with the rest of it.

6.  I’m happy that school is starting, but I am sad that summer is ending.

I’m not going to tag anyone, but feel free to play along.


This photo has nothing to do with this post, but I really love it.  It was one of many magical moments this past weekend.  Hope yours was great too.
