An Award and New Giveaway Sponsors

Hello everyone!  I hope you all have had a wonderful week.  I have been busy playing substitute teacher to 20 fun and loving kindergarten kiddos all week.  There very wonderful teacher had to have a tumor removed from her lip on Monday afternoon and didn't make it back all week.  She was told no sold food for a week and was trying to take meds for pain along with antibiotics on an empty tummy.  Needless to say that was not a good idea.  She is doing much better today though and will return on Monday so next week will slow back down for me. Thank goodness!!

I am sad to say that there has been no crochet at all going on in my house this week.  I have been wore out from working this week and haven't even had the urge to pick up my hooks.  With the teacher I was subbing for planning on coming back on Thursday she had no sub plans past Wednesday so I was scrambling to get everything copied and made up for the rest of the week and that meant no breaks during the day except a few minutes to eat and then back to getting everything together.  Enough about that.

I found out that Miss Debi over at awarded me the award after being awarded herself.
Thanks Debi!!

Now, I have to tell you 5 things about myself and pass this award onto 5 other bloggers whose blog I enjoy.

1. I grew up in a very small town and only had 30 kids in my graduating class.
2. I grew up in a single parent household most of my life.
3. I have two older brothers whom I have not seen in years.
4. I love Saturday's and Sunday's because my kids come and crawl in bed with me and "snuggle up" as Boo calls it.
5. I love to read Christian Historical Fiction novels. They are my weakness and I read about a book a week.

Blogs I enjoy:

1.Susan at
2. Kate at
3. Poetesswug at
4. Kristen at
5. Tante Izzy at

I have some exciting giveaways coming up in the next two months.  I have two new giveaway sponsors and I can't wait to share the wonderful things with you.  April's giveaway sponsor is going to be Pink Zebra and May's sponsor is Thirty-One.

I am only going to do number 1 and 2 because I am lazy today.

Here are Susan's questions with my answers:

  1. What is your favorite animal and why?  I would have to say birds.  I love to watch the birds in the winter when our bird feeders are full and I love to listen to them sing in the spring and summer.
  2. What do you love to make above and beyond anything else?  I love to make things for other people.  The one thing I love to make the most for my MIL is the crochet washcloths because when she opens the box she just lights up with excitement over the fact that she has new ones to use.
  3. What's your biggest wish for the future?  I guess it would have to be for my kids to have a wonderful future.  For school to be easy for them and for them to have lots of friends.  For them to be Godly men and women.
  4. What would you say is the worst thing about you?  Let's see.  I have a horrible habit of biting on the inside of my mouth and chewing my tongue.  This torments my husband. The worst part is it caused TMJ and I had to have braces for four years as an adult.  UGH!! My daughter has the same habit.
  5. What would you say is the best thing about you?  I am a great listener and a loyal friend.
  6. What's the most treasured memory you have so far in your life?  When my kids first said "mama" and when they first laughed.
  7. If you won the lottery what would be the first thing you would buy? A larger house with a craft room!!  But I don't play the lottery so that will never happen.
  8. What is your favorite type of flower?  Daisy of course.
  9. What's the most favorite thing you have in your wardrobe?  Jeans.  I am a country girl and couldn't survive without them.
  10. What started you blogging?  To keep up with other blogs as well as things I have made and done.
  11. What's the best thing about blogging? Meeting friends I would not have met otherwise. Like Susan and all of you.

I am now off to the post office to mail out some of my Giveaway goodies.  The winner of the Tracie Peterson book was Mindy.  She has been contacted and has already sent me her email so hers will go out with the rest this morning.  

Susan yours is on the way too.  Giggle Giggle.  Happy Birthday Dear Friend!!
