The Versatile Blogger Award -Thank You Lisa!!!

I’m going to start with a big huge thanks to Lisa over at Memories in the Making for being my first guest blogger!!!  I just LOVE her site, and I know you will too if (when) ya check it out!  Lisa is so very talented and so sweet!  As soon as her button is up, I’ll get it on our list!

Also, she has passed on this award to me!!!  (YAY, my very first!!!  Thanks again Lisa!!!)

This one comes with a nifty set of rules, so here goes!

The rules are:

1. Thank and link back to the person who gave you the award
2. Answer 10 questions
3. Pass it along to 7 blogs you’ve recently discovered and enjoy
4. Leave your recipients a note, telling them about the award

And the 10 questions are:

1. Why did you create this blog?
I was inspired by the first blog I found (Everyday Cricut).  The ladies there are really great at what they do, and there are so many projects they do that I just HAD to do.  So, thanks to their inspiration, I decided to start my own blog.  One thing I found issue with on various sites was that I didn’t have the resources in my scrap collection to do some of the projects, so I wanted to create a blog that used stuff I had laying around the house so that anyone could do them.  So, here we are!!!

2. What kinds of blogs do you follow?
Crafts, DIY, scrapbook….  I like to randomly find new ones, typically off of links I find on sites I already like.

3. Favorite make-up brand? Avon, but honestly I don’t wear make-up.  I’m too much of a tomboy.  LOL

4. Favorite clothing brand? The only reason I know there are so many brands is because I do have to buy clothes.  Needless to say, no favorite brand!

5. Indispensable makeup product? Does chapstick count???  I LOVE CHAPSTICK!!!  Pretty certain I have at least 20 tubes lost in various places around my house, van, and my husband’s truck!

6. Favorite color? ORANGE!!!  I can’t get enough of it!  I read somewhere that the color orange makes people happier (I’m a psychology fanatic and have my B.A. in it).

7. Favorite perfume? I am ashamed to say I have no idea.  I know it’s Avon, does that count???  LOL.  (Do ya see a pattern here???)

8. Favorite film? Fighting Temptations….  Coal Miner’s Daughter…  Pretty much all of the Brat Pack films (I love all 80’s comedies)….  Ummm….  Most recent movie that I just love is RED…

9. What country would you like to visit and why?  Good One….  Ummm…  I would love to visit any tropical island paradise.  I love exploring cultures, and beaches are just gorgeous!!!

10. Would you rather forget to put mascara on one eye or forget blush on one side of your face?  Let’s see, when I did wear make-up, I didn’t need mascara (I have really long eye lashes)

Let’s see, I have the links to a bunch of sites that I love on my page so I’m going to do some searching for some new sites…

1. Musings of a Housewife 
(she has helped me so much through her blogs: she taught me to make that adorable button on the side of the page!  I really appreciate that!)
2. The Idea Room (She is SO talented and has a lot of really great projects on her blog.  She makes me feel like maybe I can actually do them!)
3. Bitten By the Bug 2 (I’ve been watching this one for a while.  It’s great!!!  Every week she has challenges, which really make you want to create some great stuff!)
4.Busy with the Cricky (Recently found this one and LOVING it!!!)
5. Scrapbook Sisters(This site is adorable!!!)
6. Scrapbook {Express}ions (Great challenges that help push your creativity without controlling it!)
7. Scrap Scene (Recently found this site, it’s really cool because it links to a lot of other sites and has some great projects!)

Thanks to all the wonderful inspiration y’all provide! Keep up the awesome work!!!
