Thanks Tracy for my FIRST Blog Award!!!

I was absolutely thrilled when Tracy Evans of Crafty Addicts blog nominated me for this Beautiful Blogger Award!  Thank you so much Tracy, you are such a talented crafter and I am so honored that you included me in your list of people who inspire you!  Be sure to visit her blog - she goes beyond cards and well into multi-media projects, which is a direction I would like to head myself!

The terms of the award are:
  • That I thank and link to the person who gave it to me (check!)
  • Tell you ten things about myself
  • Pass it on to ten bloggers who inspire me, and leave a comment on their blogs to let them know!

Ten things about me:
  1. My father was already an officer in the Navy when I was born, so I don't have a hometown. Hometown for me is wherever Dad lives!  He's my hero!
  2. I don't have any children of my own, but my BFF sister took care of that for me when she had four, whom I love dearly!  Way to go, Janet! She's an awesome mom of amazing kids! No bias here at all! ;-)
  3. I lived in northern Italy all during high school. We lived on the Italian Riviera, in a wonderful villa on a cliff over the ocean. I attended boarding school in Vicenza, which was 45 minutes west of Venezia (Venice!) It was WONDERFUL!
  4. I like to knit, but not sweaters. I like to make lace shawls, hats, fingerless mitts. Basically, I knit things that are not in danger of turning out the wrong size!!!
  5. I don't watch TV (except the Olympics)! Ok, so I watch every two years, LOL! No moral opinions, I just don't! I do watch DVD movies occasionally, but usually I'm listening to a book!
  6. I am an avid reader, and own well over two thousand books. Moving all the time as a child meant books became friends that I didn't have to leave behind. I also re-read favorites, some even yearly!  I have recently grown addicted to audio books, so I can stamp and read at the same time. Books are movies that you get to cast and direct, all in your own head!
  7. I am afraid of boredom. I have a large purse (tote bag actually) so I am never without something to do or amuse, should I be trapped in a waiting room, traffic jam, long car trip, whatever! Be prepared, that's my motto!!
  8. I am happy in my own company. Being alone does not have to mean lonely. Plus it's a great time to stamp!
  9. I am a terrible housekeeper. If I'm not working I'd rather stamp!
  10. I am so grateful to have found this amazing world of stamping bloggers! The LSS in the nearest city closed, and this blogging world has filled a huge hole in my creative life. If you are reading this, I am talking about YOU - THANKS!
Now for the hard part. I subscribe to so many blogs in my Reader. How to limit it to ten blogs? I could nominate hundreds! I'd give one to Tracy but she just got hers!

Ten blogs that inspire me, in no particular order:
I could name so many more, and for all the other bloggers I subscribe to, you almost wound up on this list!

Thanks again Tracy, I'll never forget receiving my first blog award!
