A Blog Award

I'm so honored to tell you that my sweet friend Patti Painter  has presented me with an award.

This blog award has a few requirements:
1. to pass it along to 8 deserving people
2. to tell 7 things about yourself

After much difficult deliberations these are the 8 people who I have
decided to pass this award along too.  Some of these I have recently discovered
and others I have followed for a while.  Please take a moment and check out these
ladies wonderful blogs.

In no particular order...

Here are 7 things about me...
1. I spend a huge amount of time carpooling my kids to soccer, dance
softball, school clubs etc.
2.  I love old Cary Grant & Katherine & Audrey Hepburn movies
3. My favorite author is Mary Higgins-Clark 
4. My craft room is an utter disaster!  I see all of the beautiful pictures people
post of their rooms and I just don't understand how they keep them looking
like that???
5. Almost every night I read to my 2 kids before bed.  Dominick is 12 and we're currently reading
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.
Makena is almost 11 and we're reading Stolen Children by Peg Kehret.

6. I love to cook and try new recipes.  One day I hope to have my kitchen redone and 
let that inspire me even more!

7. Our house is set in the woods and I love my "daily dose" of nature.  We see deer and birds by the dozens
on a daily basis.  Almost weekly we'll see turkeys, groundhogs and  rabbits.  A couple of times a year
we are even visited by a bear.  I'm still trying to capture a bear on film though.  It's always dusk when
they arrive and my photos never turn out.  

American Goldfinch

  Paint turtle

Garter Snake

 Hairy Woodpecker

 Eeek!!  We're surrounded.  (our record is 11 at one time) 

  Hummingbird Moth

 Thank you Patti!

I'm so honored for the award! Last year, I thought I should start photographing all the wild life in my neck of the woods, so to speak. I never started..but maybe I should!

Renée, I am so sorry I took so long to respond to your kind blog award. I have just signed on the Crafty Creations Challenge Design team and that was keeping me on my toes. I did come and want to say thank you...but now I am free to do it.

So will be posting your award tomorrow, for I am out visiting a friend today. Yeah...I'm always on the go...oh and did I mention becoming a new grammy!!!

Hugs, Peggy and thank you again!
