Butterfly Award!


I am so sorry it has taken me so long to get this posted. I know you all are as tired of hearing about my computer problems as I am of typing them, but I kept a draft post and listed each time someone gave me this award. I was trying to post it from my brand new computer on Saturday night when my cursor started jumping around the document. I tried to go back and get it and it deleted the entire post! And then stinkin blogger autosaved so I lost everything! Pretty sure I shed a tear or two! So I have had to go back through my emails and try to find the names again. I sincerely apologize if I left anyone out who gave this to me. If so PLEASE let me know and I will publicly thank you and apologize!

I truly have the best blogger buddies in all of bloggerland and I am so grateful for all of you! I want to say a great big thank you to the following friends for gifting me with the Butterfly Award! Each and every one of them is truly amazing and creative and so super-talented and I hope you will visit their blogs to see what I mean! You will not be sorry!! So a huge thank you to (in the order the award was received):

Sherrie - Sherrie Scraps With Passion
Amy - Amy's Crafting Space

To receive this award, I need to: answer several questions, award this 'Butterfly Award' to 10 other bloggers, contact the 10 bloggers to let them know they have been given this award, and I also need to show a link to the person who gave me the 'Butterfly Award'.  So here goes...

Q1) Name your favorite colour?
Blue

Q2) Name your favorite song?
Oooh, so many, but right now: Say Goodbye by Katherine McPhee, Jar of Hearts by Christina Perri, Dancing by Elisa, Holding On and Letting Go by Ross Copperman and Cathedrals by Jump Little Children (sorry, I couldn't pick just one!)

Q3) Name your favorite dessert?
Strawberry Shortcake

Q4) What wizzes you off at the moment?
Rude, inconsiderate people and Microsoft. I had to get a new computer because of all the problems with Vista, so I get one and two days later, they launch another new operating system! Grr...I am sooo not happy with Microsoft right now...

Q5) Your favorite pet?
I'm a dog person but I haven't been able emotionally to get another since I had to put my baby, Dakota, to sleep after 15 years ago. I have three semi-feral cats whose momma had them here and then abandoned them: Shadow, Cali and Calypso. Calypso is the sweetest of all of them, lets me pet her, runs to me when I come home, talks constantly and so wants to be an indoor cat :)

Q6) Black or White
Black for clothing

Q7) Your biggest fear?
Illness striking my family; snakes

Q8) Best Feature?
My sense of humor

Q9) Everyday attitude?
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; the courage to change the things I can; and the wisdom to know the difference

Q10) What is perfection?
The ocean

Q11) Guilty Pleasure?
DWTS, SYTYCD and red wine

Q12) When you're upset you?
Brood, write want I want to say in my head, imagine sending it and then let it go...either that or call my mom :)

Now I have to pass this award along. This is always the hardest part for me. Everyone deserves it, and I have a huge hang-up about not wanting to hurt anyone's feelings or for anyone to feel left out. But in keeping with the rules, I am passing it along to the following, starting with the amazing friends who gave it to me! Ladies, you do not need to post this again, just know that I want you to have it from me because I am so very thankful for you and so inspired by you! (In alphabetical order:)
