Well, I'm back again!!!  I've been passed on another Ms. Brightside" award.  It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!!!  I'm just elated to be thought of!

My friend, and a very generous and sharing lady, Cindy McVey of  http://crazy4crafting.blogspot.com/ passed this award on to me.  I may be assuming we all know Cindy because "I" admire her so that everybody knows and admires her too; however, if you don't know her you should.  Her blog is really a must-see!  If there's anything new to learn, Cindy is the person whose blog you should visit.  Thank you, Cindy!

Now, as I commented to Cindy, I'm not accustomed to thinking about "me" so much as to be able to easily list all these things about myself, and this has really required a great deal of thought on my part to sort through things about myself -- ummm...  So, if I repeat anything I've already said please excuse me, I guess I'm just not as in tune with "me" as I should be.  I may even tack on something I said earlier; I mean, I've really had to rack my brain to come up with things about me to share with you-- isn't that pitiful?

About Me:
1.   I always, always give love and thanks to God first!
2.   Love for self would be next
3.   Family and ALLLLLLLL my many friends would be next on the list
4.   I love to talk but I'm told I'm really a great listener too
5.   I always try to be kind and respectful to everyone
6.   I buy almost every craft gadget/tool available but only use a few of them
7.   Same with shoes -- closets full of them; can't wear most of them because my not-so-good back doesn't
       like heels and I have bad feet!  LOL!  So I just look at them!  Yes!  I have a shoe fetish!
8.    I'm very good at keeping myself company when no one is around and just silly enough to easily keep
       myself entertained
9.    I just have to say it again, I love my crafting and I love blogging
10.  I love giving and (mostly) receiving love

Triva Things:
1.  My family is from all parts of Louisiana so I love-love cajun food, and yes I eat alligator
2.  I love the televison series "Monk" and I record every series
3.  As much as I love my little "fur baby", Buster, I hate having to clean up his poop in public (or any time)
4.  I subconsciously hum almost all the time (which drives a couple of friends nuts because I get stuck on
     whatever was the last song I heard; over and over and over again -- lol!)
5.  And I know I said this before but  laughing is one of my favorite things to do -- it's like medicine to me!

If I had to come up with one more thing, I don't think I could!

Now to pass it onto some older and newer blogger friends:

1.  Shelley of http://coggiecrafts.blogspot.com/   I just met Shelley recently on the mb and I absolute fell in love with some of the adorable outfits she sews for her grandchildren.  She's also a great crafter working at building up her blog.  Please show her some love.

2.  Stacey of http://gluedtomycrafts.blogspot.com/  Stacey is another new friend and you have to see some of her beautiful jewelry she makes. 

3.  Helen of http://atasteofdcdoll.blogspot.com/  A very talented crafter!  She makes some of the cutest projects.

4.  Lori of http://scrappinmystressaway/  Lori always leaves me such encouraging and supportive comments and I can't remember since I've been blogging when she wasn't here urging me on.

5. Brigit (Brigit Scraps) of http://irishmist59.blogspot.com/  Brigit is a sweetheart with a beautiful blog who also encourages me with such kind comments.

Well, that's it for now!  So, I'll be seeing you!
