A blog award!

Hello Crafters,
I was excited to announce that I received another blog award! This one is the stylist blog award from Carri at Doubleclick connections. Now here is what I need to do now...

1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded you this

Carri has an awesome blog and if you have not hopped over there now is the time! Thanks so much for the award Carri it means a lot to get awards. Heck, I get excited about a comment so I am sure you can tell I am over the moon about this!

2. Share 8 things about yourself

ok here it goes:
1. People often tell me they are intimidated by my organization skills. I just love things where they belong!
2. I am a secret hoarder...I hoard everything but I make sure it is all organized and hidden in my closets! lol
3. I love folding laundry! I love the smell and I am very particular about it being neat! Yes...I fold even the undies :)
4. I am a house plant lover. Brian says we live in a jungle.
5. I despise cats. My entire life I have been extremely allergic to them and they seem to know it and love me. I have actually had nightmares about cats attacking me!
6. I panic when I can't find my nalgene bottle. It goes everywhere with me! (Yes, I have a BPA free one)
7. Going along with #6, I am a water snob. I only like water that comes out of my tap/well. I hate the taste of pre-bottled water and don't even get me started on town water with all the "purifying agents."
8. I am addicted to cherry lypsyl. It happened in high school and for the last 10ish years I can't leave the house without one within my reach. My lips dry out within a couple hours and get all chapped if I don't apply it every couple hours....I swear!

3. Pay it forward to 8 bloggers that you have recently discovered

Some of these blogs I have just discovered and some I have been following for a while and want to show them I appreciate their work and efforts in blog world!

Creative Princess- thank you for this lovely award- It makes one smile to be given an award for something they love to do. I will not be able to post this award until next week- sorry. but I'm leaving in the morning and wont have enough time to find 8 new bloggers which I need to expand my blogger list a bit anyways and need some time to check some new ones out. But I will get this done when I get back from Arkansas (visiting my mother for Thanksgiving for a week) Hope you have a great Thanksgiving.
