My First Blog Award

Today I received my first blog award, thanks to Monica at Cottage Rose Garden cool is that?! Thank you so much Monica! It seems kinda odd to be receiving an award for something that brings me so much I have only been at this for about 10 months...and my blog is truly a "work-in-progress"...but nevertheless, I did a little happy dance when I saw this award was passed on to me...

The rules to accept the award: Thank and link to the person who gave you the award. Paste the award on your blog. Write 10 things about yourself others might not know....and then pass the award on to 10 others.

So, part of the award is to tell 10 facts about yourself (which isn't easy for me, as I don't find myself incredibly interesting) and then pass the award on to 1o other deserving bloggers (which also isn't easy, as my list of favorites is endless...).

Ten little known facts about me...hmm...this could take a while...
  1. I am a music junkie and collect all sorts of music memorabilia and autographs...I still collect and listen to vinyl record albums.
  2. In my teen years I was a "punk rock girl" and an avid skateboarder.
  3. I still secretly watch most of the MTV line-up.
  4. I don't go to the movie theater because I am a germaphobe.
  5. When I am upset, I clean house.
  6. I am a HUGE Michigan Wolverines fan (although I did not attend college there).
  7. I get really grumpy when I am hungry.
  8. I can recite all 50 states in alphabetical order (thanks to a song I learned in 1st grade).
  9. I am a Longaberger addict...seriously need of an intervention.
  10. I would love to design greeting cards and/or stationery.

Now, in no particular order, here are my nominations (I wish I could nominate 100 more - I need to win more awards, so I can award more of you!!):

Celtic Heart Knitting and Quilting
Crafting With The Stitch Witch
My Life In Threads
Three Cool Pugs and Me
Stitchyangel's Treasures
Shari's Sharings
Pumpkin Patch & Co
I'd Rather Be Stitching
For The Love of Cross Stitch
Days of A Sampler Lover

I thought about writing a little something about each of these nominations - but then I realized, I was going to be saying the same things for each blog. These are all incredibly talented and creative people...with amazing skills in needlework and/or quilting and/or crafting....and I enjoy each and every one of them! So go visit and investigate these links...and who knows you may just find someone new to follow....


  1. Thank you for the nomination! I'm honored. I'll work on my acceptance post this weekend.

  2. Thank you for the award! I'm going to have to work on this. lol! Loved reading about your little known facts!

  3. You are so sweet. Thanks for the honor. However, I'm notoriously bad about following up on this kind of thing. LOL And I probably can't print 10 interesting things about myself.

  4. 1. I don't go to movie theaters because the floors are sticky, the movies aren't in focus, the patrons talk, and most of the time I feel I wasted my money on less entertainment than an hour television drama.
    2. I am a HUGE University of Kentucky Wildcats basketball fan (although I did not attend college there). My father-in-law was the team dentist, our niece and nephew went there, and all the rest of my husband's family lives in Lexington.
    3. When I am grumpy, the first thing my husbans asks is "Did you have something to eat today?".

    I just love finding out things I have in common with other bloggers that I like.

  5. Thank you so much for the award Belinda. I am very honoured. I will think about this and post to my blog next week.

  6. I enjoyed reading the tidbits about yourself!

  7. Congratulations on your blog award, loved reading all about you and will love visiting those you have mentioned.

  8. Hi Belinda,
    You inspired me to get off my duff and quit ignoring these lovely compliments. So I've just award you the "Sunshine Blog Award".

    No pressure, just want you to know how much I love your blog and think others will too.

    I'll be passing on your sweet award this week.


  9. I get grumpy when I'm hungry too! And I love 80's music, esp. "new wave"(as we called it back then.. hee hee)

  10. Congrats on your award Belinda!

    Thank you SO much for nominating my Blog for this award. I was very touched that you thought about me :o) I don't do awards anymore so if you want to pass it along to someone else, I completely understand. I hope you will continue to enjoy visiting me though :o)
