The Versatile Blogger!!

WOW!  I was so excited to get a message from Angela Bricker over at Love Sweet Love that she had given me a Versatile Blogger Award!
It came at such a perfect time.  I just wrapped up the semester and was super busy packing.  So of course it has taken me a bit to post about this but it definitely made me giddy!  Plus I decided to search for all new bloggers to give to award the award to!

Anyways here is the deal -
1. Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them.
2. Tell seven things about yourself.
3. Pay if forward and award the Versatile Blogger to 15 recently discovered new bloggers.
4. Contact everyone and let them know they've been awarded!

THANK YOU ANGELA!  She has such a cute blog!  Seriously go check it out ... NOW!

So seven things about me... (this was actually kind of hard for me!  I don't know what you want to know about me... I'm a person, I breathe :P )

  1. I am half way done with my Masters of Fine Arts degree!  I just finished the first year last week and already am trying to figure out what I will be doing over the summer to prep for next year.  So my life is literally full of crafting.  I go to my school studio and work on my art, teach and then come home to do crafts for the Hubs and I.  I love creating art but sometimes it is more fun to just come home and make CUTE things!
  2. I like to watch TV while crafting.  I know a lot of people like to put on music but in the last year or so I started just putting on a movie or tv show.  Somehow I multitask the two!  My husband doesn't get it but it totally works for me!  Except for the fact that I can go through a TV Season in 2-3 days!!!!  Any suggestions for TV shows or movies this summer?  I'll be putting in 7 hour crafting days!
  3. I only really came into my own Decorating style this year!  It started as I was planning my wedding trying to make it my own and now it continues to flourish in my newlywed bliss! (vintage frames, lace, paper epherma, birds and green)  The Hubs and I just moved into a new place (seriously only put my clothes in the closet an hour ago) and I am really excited to start decorating it with my personal touches!  It may not come out perfect but I sure am trying!
  4. I HATE bugs.  I just unloaded a whole can of bug spray in our new place to keep all the little pests out!  I even made my own poking stick a while back to smash spiders from a 4 foot distance!
  5. I grew up a TOTAL TOMBOY!  Honestly I was always the one girl on the basketball court playing with the boys.  It took me a long time to admit that some guys were stronger than me.  I have gotten to an age where I can admit I need help though!  I've always had more guy friends than girls (still not sure why) and I never wore a skirt unless I was forced to.  Now I wear a dress or skirt basically every other day because I find them more comfortable and I try to make friends with girls.... still working on that one though.
  6. I LOVE ice cream.  I honestly eat a cup almost every night!  Although for my dear sweet hips I make homemade chocolate sorbet or other lite ice creams!
  7. I have an abundance of stick notes because I am a total LIST MAKER due to the fact that I like to get things done!  Honestly I am the task master!  I'll even make lists of all the things to look for in the antique mall or at least a list of all the projects I am working on!  In fact I have 22 computer sticky notes and 12 on my phone and lots of little ones around the house and studio :)
Anyways enough about me!  

Here are some Fantastic blogs I found in the last few days.
{Nifty Thrifty Things}
Krazy Crafty Lady
Stuff and Nonesense

Hope you all enjoyed the tidbits about me and find some inspiration in the bloggers I nominated!

Thank you all for reading!

    OO fun! Congrats on the award! I didnt even know there WAS blog awards! what the heck?

    p.s...i craft while watching tv!!!! music doesnt do enough for my brain..I need something more. We were meant to be crafting buddies!

    ive ALWAYS had more guy friends then girls...i find it really hard to become friends with a girl, unless they-themselves have always had mostly guy friends! Then, somehow, we connect!

    I AM A LIST MAKER! I have a "to do" list on my computer and a "re-do to do" list...and a "things i want to buy" list and "crafts for baby" "crafts for bedroom" "crafts for kitchen" etc...along with about 27 other lists! Ah....were we seperated at birth?

    also, here are a few of my fav blogs if you want to check them out!

    Thank you so much Kaitlin! I've already received the award (check it out here) a while back.. I feel really honored you included me in the list, though! :)
    It was really fun finding out more about you!
    I'm a TV-watching crafter as well. ;)

    I'm so glad you had time to do this! It's so fun to learn about people through their blogs and makes you seem like a "friend"! Can't wait to see everything you do this summer!

    What an honor! Thank you! I am with you on the Tom Boy thing! I would much rather be playin than cheering from the sidelines!
