Hello my sweet blogger friends,
First I want to let you all know that my digital online store is live!!!!! I would love for you to visit just to let me know what you think of it, (I am certainly not asking that you buy anything) .. I am just so excited it is done and want you to share in my excitement... I worked 9 hours straight on it yesterday determined to fix the technical issues with it..
I still have a few small things to work out and I am asking that if you do notice anything wrong, please let me know... I already know about the butterfly covering part of the first sentence on the home page and there is a few broken links, let me know and thanks to you who already made me aware, I appreciate it.
Now for today!
I am so excited and honored to have received an award for my blog! It is called the Sunshine award and was given to me from the wonderful talented Karon over at Karon's crafty corner Thank you Karon!!!!
(I get to pay it forward!:-) eeeek!
Here are the rules:
1. Include award logo in blog post.
2. Thank the blogger who gave it to you and include a link back to them.
3. Answer 10 questions about yourself, that you have made up yourself.
4. Nominate 10-12 bloggers and contact them at their blog site to inform them.
What do you do when you are not crafting, drawing digitals or building a website?
The real answer would be flat out on the couch watching Dr. Oz, Ellen or Mike and Molly.... but lets not get too real, hehe... I love to visit with my friends , talk on the phone or get really silly with Michael... I have at least 20 different voices I use doing different characters. I rarely ever leave the house which I am working on.
What is your favorite color combo?
Red , White and Blue
What do you like best about blogger world?
The sincere and genuine friendships that I have developed and are constantly in contact with through email, you know who you are!
What do you like least about Blogger world?
I don't have enough time to visit all the friends I want everyday... I spend close to 2 hours a day commenting so if I miss yours one day, I will be there in the next couple of days or make up for it when I do!
What is your biggest passion in life? (Getting profound )
My biggest passion is spiritual growth:
To work on the little things rather than the big so it is not so overwhelming;
To be more aware of my actions and how it effects others rather it be good or bad.
To be aware of guild rather it be over food or a response in a bad situation.
( Here is a little story that changed how I viewed holding onto guilt)
When we pray and ask God to forgive us, God puts up a sign that says "NO FISHING" in the sea of forgetfulness... So in other words if God can forgive and forget, why do we get stuck at forgiving ourselves? If we forgave ourselves we wouldn't have guilt.
What do other bloggers not know about you?
Before being diagnosed I was a singer, Guitar player, music composer, lyric composer (written over 400 songs), and I taught Guitar lessons and played and sang all over PEI.. I also had a contract with RCA Records! ( Yeah, I blew it but it certainly worked out for the best)
What are your favorite card making tools?
The embosser, Grand Calibur and Stamps!!! Did I mention stamps!
Who are you inspired by most?
Christina from www.flowersribbonsandpearls.blogspot.com
Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging because I was diagnosed with MS and I needed something to do to take my mind of all the pain and challenges.. Michael was diagnosed the same month with Autism.... I gained strength, ambition and let my creativity flow which freed my mind!
Last year I was diagnosed with Fibromyalsia so in other words I sit in the "Unknown" territory but blogging and having friends like you inspire me (really inspire me!!!) By nature I am a positive person but having all this extra positivity in my life in bloggy land helps me deal with the physical pain, mentally I am free which is half the battle!
Here are my nominations for this Sunshine Award!
