Blessed With Awards....

I must be the worst tag/award responder--EVER! I am moved to happy tears when I receive an award of some type from one of my FABulous blogging buddies--and I write it down and have full intentions of paying the love forward immediately...only I don't do it. Why?! I do not know. I'm a first class, grade A procrastinator, this I know--so perhaps this is where the problem lies. At any rate, I am making a commitment today to change this bad trait and I'm starting with catching up on all of the amazing awards I have received in the recent weeks from friends. These are in no particular order and I am equally touched by each one :)

The BFF Gold Card from my sweet and talented ANGEL friend, JOANIE and from my equally amazing and mega-talented pal, BARB! (yep, I got tagged twice on this one!--WAIT, I got tagged thrice on this one, lol!) Miss Wonderful, LEE also gave me this award! Can't forget my favorite girl! :) Thanks to all 3 of these great gal pals!
To pass on this award, these are the rules that must be followed:
1. Only five people allowed.
2. Four have to be dedicated followers of your blog
3. One has to be someone new or recently new to your blog and live in another part of the world.
4. You must link back to whoever gave you the award.

So here are the FAB FIVE of my choice:
1. AJ
2. Angie
3. Brooke
4. Carolina B.
5. Tanja- she lives by the beach in Virginia...a world away to me! :)

The Brilliant Weblog Premio 2008 Award from my awesome giraffe-loving pal, JUDY , from my super cool friend, DANIELLE, from the wonderful LORI, and from my totally sweet buddy, JENMARIE! (4 times?! yes, I am luved, hehe)
The Rules: By accepting this Brillante Webblog Premio 2008, you have to:* Award it to seven more people whose blogs you find Brilliante Award worthy. * You can give it to as many people as you want but please award at least seven.* Make a comment on the nominated blog.
Here are the SEVEN STARS of my choice:
1. Charmaine
2. Julia A.
3. Donna
4. Cyndi B.
5. Deb N.
6. Erin B.
7. Jessie R.

Tag from the amazing, super sweet and yes, SCS Dirty Girl, Michelle! This girl is so talented, it's not hard to see why she rocks the Dirty Dozen and Elzybells design teams! And I get to meet her IRL in October when we attend the WA/OR SCS Shoebox Swap together, eek!!!! I can hardly wait!
Not sure about the rules on this one, so I am going to do 5 random things about me and pass this on to 5 well deserving friends:
  1. I am a lefty...the kind of lefty that writes all funny--if I had a dime for every time someone has asked "how can you write like that?!" oh, I would be a millionaire! ;)
  2. My all-time favorite sitcoms still remain to be Three's Company and The Golden Girls. Don't think that will ever change.
  3. I could eat tuna sandwiches every day for the rest of my life--well, maybe that would be too much tuna, even for me. :)
  4. I cannot stand the sound of plastic scrapping against Styrofoam or a fork scrapping a plate--makes me absolutely insane!!!
  5. At this time 1 year ago, I owned only 1 stamp set. I had just begun stamping and did not yet understand the impact that it would have on me or that I would grow into a full-time stamp-a-holic! What stamp set was it? ....Announcements from Stampin' Up! Isn't that CraZy!!!

Now I'm tagging these 5 PRECIOUS PEEPS who I adore so much and want to know 5 FF's (fun facts) about:

1. Jennifer Meyer

2. Etha

3. Deborah

4. Stacy ...we already know you {heart} The Colts so that doesn't count! hehe!

5. Cat

The Blogging With A Purpose Award from my wonderfully caring friend, Deborah! If you know the lady, you already love her! She gives so much from her heart and soul and inspires me to be a better person, truly. No specific guidelines on this one, so I am paying it forward to 5 people who inspire me constantly:
1. Deena If you have a creative need, this girl has the answer!

2. Neva A true Southern Belle who devotes her time not only to crafting, but also to healing the sick-what a amazing lady!

3. Heidi Jo A Design Team Queen! Plus, we share the same middle name and that is so kewl!

4. Sarah A Starving Artistamps Diva and hostess with the mostess (I know cuz I've been to her house!)

5. Lisa A labgeek turned fantas-mic artiste! And I'm lucky enough to be on a design team with her!

If I missed anybody's tags, please forgive me. I love you all so much and simply have not shown it enough! I am pledging to do better from now on, k? Still luv me back, please! ~hugs and smiles to all for a blessed Sunday! As my Mommy always calls and tells me on Sunday, "God loves you and so do I"

Thanks so much for nominating me for an award. I pretty much assumed that you get awarded a lot for your talent and wonderful spirit, so when I nominated you, I linked to you, but didn't really tell you so that you wouldn't feel the need to post and nominate, etc. Now you've posted and nominated me! How funny! Thanks for the nomination. I really am so honored that you would mention me!

Angie said...
