The Versatile Blogger

There is a destiny that makes us brothers: none goes his way alone,
All that we send into the lives of others comes back into our own.

-Edwin Markham

P. at The Way I Sew It gave me this award. This is a huge compliment and I was really touched that she would think of me.

The award came with some rules {which, according to P. are meant to be broken}.

1. Thank and link back to the person who gave you the award.
See above.

2. Share 7 things about yourself.
Hopefully I don't bore the pants off you.
• I did not like chocolate when I was a kid. Unfortunately, I don't have that problem now.
• I like to sleep on my stomach and I scoot way down so my toes can hang over the bottom edge of the mattress.
• I attribute my 'creative gene' to my dad and the skills with which to use it to my mom. I inherited the best from both of them.
• I'm the oldest of six kids. Mr. Bug is the oldest of eight kids. Together, we have 35¾ nieces and nephews {and counting}. Correspondingly, our children, the Little Bugs, have 35¾ cousins.
• I had braces {for the first time} when I was 33. I've had them off for three years now and I love how beautiful and straight my teeth are.
• I have always loved dolls. I have a small collection now.
• My dream home will include a LEGO room with LEGO tables and LEGO shelves and a LEGO floor and soft comfy slippers at the door so if you accidentally step on a LEGO {because they will never have to be put away} it won't hurt your foot.

3. Pass the award to 15 blogs you enjoy and let them know they've been given the award.
It has been nearly a week since P. let me know she'd given me this award, so I hope that she doesn't think I was ignoring her kindness! I've just been thinking really hard about who to pass it on to. It was difficult to narrow it down to 15 and at the same time, I wondered if 15 was too many :lol: {you know how these things go -- will it be a compliment or will the passing it along part be an annoyance?}. At last, here is my list of new recipients of The Versatile Blogger Award.
• Amber at A Little Bit Biased
BlueBerry Moon
• Coley at Hanson's
• JaiCi at Just JaiCi's Crafts
• Karen at Sew Many Ways
• Lane at That Man Quilts
Lit & Laundry
• Peg at Happy in Quilting
• Pink at Pink Suede Shoes
Quilt Nut
• Rae Ann at Cutie Pinwheel
• Sam at All Things Quilty
• Sara at Sew Sara
• Tori at James Family Blog {check out the leather jacket she repurposed into a beautiful hand bag}
• Vicki at Sew Inspired

I'm loving reading all the little tid-bits coming up in the "7 Things" because this is the type of trivia that would never make it into a blog otherwise, but let's us know a bit more about our fellow bloggers.

And I'm enjoying being introduced to new blogs when the award is passed on.

Btw, I've now got the weather widget on my page too. Thanks for the tip.

Hahaha! I totally want a Lego room at my house! I remember a dream I had a few years ago where the entire upstairs of my house was actually built with Lego's. So when I wanted to remodel it was super easy.

And I am a toe hanger too. See, kindred spirits!

pinksuedeshoe said...

And thank you!

I love reading the "7 things" part of this award. I'm a toe hanger too, by default (i.e., I don't need to scooch down, LOL.)

That's great! I would love a LEGO room as well (and I'm sure my sons would, too.)
