Thank you Petra!

Hello there, =D

Today I received a lovely little surprise in my mailbox. Petra, from Petra's Scrapblog sent me an award! Thank you so much Petra...what a nice way to start my day! I will pass this award on to Lisa and Christie.

Now to list 7 things about me:

1) I love scrapbooking and cardmaking!
2) I also love to make other crafts.
3) I am a good seamstress, but don't like to do alterations.
4) I have raised four sons and have been married over 25 years to a great guy!
5) I really enjoy writing and have an inspirational blog as well.
6) Although I do not enjoy shopping for necessities...I LOVE shopping for scrapbook related items, and it especially makes me happy when I find a good deal. You could say I'm a collector.
7) I overthink everything.

Well, there you have it. If you have a moment, please hop over to Petra's blog and enjoy the talent she shares!
