I received the sweetest email recently from Connie at Family Home and Life passing along The Versatile Blogger Award to me! Please add Connie to your Wednesday link party list as she is hosting every wednesday at:

  Thank you Connie so much for the shout out and award, your writing blesses me, and I love your spirit 🙂 So this is fun, here is how it works:

Now the rules for this award are:
1. Thank the Blogger who nominated you.
2. Include a link to their site.
3. Include the award image in your post.
4. Give 7 random facts about yourself.
5. Nominate 15 other Bloggers for the award.
6. When nominating, include a link to their site.
7. Let other Bloggers know they have been nominated.
Here it goes! 7 random facts about me:
1. I have never been outside of the US. I have been to Pittsburgh however, and also love camping. 
2. I have four kids, ranging in age from 1 years old to 20 years old. 
3. My husband has now begun to refer to my “collecting and thrifting” as “a mild case of hoarding”.  Doesn’t he know this is the creative process? We will not be discussing the very large garage that has no room for a car…moving on to random item #4.
4. My favorite snack is a big Hershey bar and very large Diet Coke with ice.
5. I lived in Minnesota for a couple years.  I am now a winter light-weight and adore living on the West Coast. 
6. I wear a size 11 shoe on a good day.  Feet swollen? It goes up to 12, which might I add are not that easy to find. 
7. I have a confession to make (that’s fairly close to a random fact right?) in regards to #3, there is a possibility that I could be dangerously close to an issue with hoarding.  I will be having a yard sale to prove him wrong.  I will slowly stockpile new items, which he won’t notice until it’s almost time for next year’s yard sale.  He will still be so amazed at how great it was to have a sale and free up room that he does not notice my collection slowly growing again… I think this is a fairly genious plan, don’t you?
The next step is really hard because every blogger is so unique, and creative, and I adore our community so much.  But with each person passing this along to another fifteen, every fabulous (YOU!), creative, beautiful blogger will have it and we will all know so many random yet interesting things about eachother.  If you have already received the Versatile Blogger (I tried to check to make sure I didn’t already see it) then you are even more versatile than ever! Some of these amazing bloggers have been doing this for a while, and some are growing and becoming more fabulous all the time 🙂 Here we go!
