A Thing of Beauty Award!

I am sorry I've been absent the past few days. We had straight-line winds blow through Monday, knocking out the power from Monday afternoon to early Wednesday morning. It came back on for a couple of hours and then we had major storms yesterday and lost power again for most of the day. Tornadoes touched down just south and north of us, so we were very lucky. Trees are down everywhere. It was scary - our tornado sirens went off five different times throughout the evening. My thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected by these horrible storms across the country.

I was so excited to open my email when the power came back to find I had received the A Thing of Beauty Award from my awesome friends Dusti of Scrappin With Cricut and Dina of Crazy for Cricut! I am so honored and appreciative to receive this wonderful award from two amazing, creative crafters. Please visit their blogs and you will see what I mean! Thanks so much Dusti and Dina!! 

Here are the rules for the A Thing of Beauty Award: 

Must share 5 things about yourself  (1 of the listed items must be something about your craft). 

Here are the 5  things about myself:

1. Polymer clay was my first craft-love, but I devote most of my free time to paper crafts now
2. My paternal grandfather really did run away to join the circus when he was young
3. If someone would combine a bookstore and craft store, I would never leave
4. I love to take pictures
5. I love my new iRock 

Now I would like to pass along this award to the following bloggers (in no particular order):

1. Susan of Cricut and Grasshopper
2. June of  Simply Elegant Paper Crafts
3. Crystal of Little Creations
4. Heather of Paper Crafters Anonymous
5. Sandy of Paper Transformer

Please stop by each of their blogs and you will see why I think their blogs are "A Thing of Beauty"!!

  4. Thank you Lisa! This was so nice of you to pass this on to me and I will post it with pride! I love your idea of a book/craft store! Could you imagine, Barnes and Noble combined with a Michael's? That would be heaven on earth! I would never leave either! I also love the fact about your grandfather, now that is a great family story! It reminded me of something special my Grandfather did too, which I will post. Hope your weekend is going great, and no storms!
