And the Award Goes to.... ME! (yeah!)

Sorry for being MIA the last few days.. we had a couple disasters at my house. Lost my neighbors daughter (its a looong story with a happy ending), a shipping nightmare and ..The biggest one was that my little guy got a case of stinovitis (what?) of the hip and lost the ability to walk for several days.  A little upsetting to say the least.. because my 3 year old was crawling again.  Needless to say I carried him around for several days so it did not leave much time for crafting and/or blogging.  He is feeling much better now.. but still gimping around a bit.  I swear sometimes.. that these things happen only to ME... I never even HEARD of Stinovitus!
So now on to the AWARDS! (yes I said awards with an S because I got 2!)
The first award comes from one of my favorite bloggy friends Maria @ Bubblegum and Duct Tape (don't you just LOVE that name?.. I DO!).  You can visit her at her blog @  She has amazing, original projects and loves to showcase beautiful tablescapes!  Maria was generous enough to bestow upon me the Boldfaced liar  Creative blogger award. 

This means that I now have to tell you 5 lies and 1 truth and you have to guess which is the true statement.  This is very involved.. so I will blog this post in a day or two. 

In the meantime, I was also given the Versatile Blogger Award by Allison at It's Toile Good.   Allison is amazing at sewing projects and has crafted some truly adorable kids wear and crafts.. You can visit her @ to check them out!  You won't be disappointed.

So now here are the rules:

  • Thank and link back to the person that gave you the award.

  • Share 7 things about yourself.

  • Pass the award to 15 blogs you love and enjoy!

  • Let those blogs know they've been given the award.
