Stylish Blog Award

Every once in a while my blog gets recognized by an incredible blogger/stamper. This time I received recognition from the uber talented Patty Bennett!!!! Patty is one of my favorite stampers. She always has fun, new, creative projects posted on her blog and has inspired me many times. It doesn't hurt that she was the #5 stamper out of thousands of Stampin' Up! demonstrators last year! Patty has graciously awarded me the Stylish Blogger award and I am so thrilled.

As with most awards there is a little work I need to do to accept this award. I need to tell you 8 things about myself that you probably didn't know and then I need to pay it forward to 8 other amazing bloggers.

So, here are a few things you might not know about me:

1. I have been married for almost 18 years to a wonderful man and my best friend. We met about 26 years ago while working at Chili's Grill & Bar. I was a waitress/bartender and he was a cook/waiter. When I met him I knew I would marry him one day.

2. I have a 7 year old son who is the love of my life. We tried for almost 10 years to have a baby and just when we thought about giving up God blessed us with a boy.

3. I have been a Stampin' Up! demonstrator for almost 15 years. I signed up right after a presentation on Secretary's Day at my old job. I have since quit that job and have been a full time demonstrator ever since.

4. I have a huge family on my Dad's side with 6 uncles and 3 aunts and over 200 cousins, most of which still live in Stockton, CA. My Mom was an only child so I have no aunts & uncles on her side.

5. Sometimes I think I should have been a teacher. I absolutely LOVE working at my son's school. I love being in class with the kids and helping them with their work. I would be there every day if I could but, if you paid me and it was my real job, I don't think I'd like it.

6. I've had 6 cars in my driving career. A silver, spray painted, 1964 Bug, a Toyota Corona station wagon, a Scirocco, a Toyota Celica Supra, a Honda Accord and now a Chrysler Town & Country Van. Out of all those the Honda and Chrysler were bought brand new.

7. I've had 10 jobs. I'm not sure of the exact order but here they are: Chevron Gas Station, Gemco, Susie's Casuals, American Forest Products, Spoons, Chili's, Carlos Luigi's, Stone Brothers Real Estate Group and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory was my last job. My current job as a Mom/Stampin' Up! demonstrator is the absolute best job I've ever had!!

8. I am usually up at all hours of the night reading emails, playing computer games and reading blogs.

Ok, now I would like to pay this forward to some amazing bloggers!! These are ladies that inspire my creativity and give me endless tips and techniques for stamping. Do yourself a favor and check out their blogs. You won't be disappointed!!
